Damaged my monitor

I have an Eizo monitor plugged into a laptop via Displayport. I spilled some liquid onto the laptop keyboard and the computer shutdown. I thought I'd blown the laptop but after some drying out it is back to functioning. The monitor seems to have been damaged though as it no longer displays an image over Displayport. The laptop recognises the monitor but nothing shows up on screen and it displays there is no signal. I tried plugging it into a Mac and it has the same issue. I tried a second displayport cable and again the issue is the same. I tried an HDMI cable and that does show an image but of course the resolution is not native.

Is there anything else I can try or is the monitor busted? Can I take the monitor to a regular computer repair shop? Is it something fixable?

Thanks for any ideas.
