    My AOA150 got into a little mishap & the lcd is water damaged.....

    Everything else is working perfectly fine I just suspect that there is water causing corrosion in the spot where the lcd ribbon cable connects (causing distorted lines on the display). Anyway to fix this?

    Just want to ask does the 1yr AUS courier pickup & repair warranty cover 'accidental' or 'natural' water damage?

    Many Thanks.

    No, they don't.

    Warranty only covers problems caused by poor workmanship or other issues caused by the manufacturer.
    No issues caused by the user or nature or anything else is covered. For water damage, you might want to check your insurance if it covers the damage, but Acer won't do it.
