To guess this one

We have to research how LCD panels are made. There could have been pressure in that area and now that it's in a warm spot the plastics have had time to flatten on and relieve the pressure in that spot.

I see this effect by apply light pressure on almost any LCD so to call the pressure effect a defect would be writing that all LCDs are defective. If it cleared after a few days, your choice to attempt a return. Not a sign of impending doom.

So if it dissapeared leave alone monitor and not rma? But how and why it dissapeared?

I explained why it most likely disappeared.

In reply to: ok

Since my explanation didn't work for you, I think you have to make a decision what to do next.

Me? If it's good now, I'd move on.

Ok i have found something similiar ,look: ( example from table )

In first day of use,
bright little spot was only visible on light blue colours when your looking at a side angle. Not when you're looking directly at the screen. What was that? Maybe backlight bleeding?
But why it dissapeared?

That one is debateable.

In reply to: ok

The video is at an angle and we're back to how LCDs are made and work.

There are some folk that are not interested in how things work and for them, they'll return the product.
