[NTLK] Interesting Screen Anomaly on 2100, Anyone...

Seen something like this...
I recently acquired a 2100 never really used.  I have noticed that while everything works, it looks like there is some oil or something in a few spots underneath the screen.  I can see one oil like splotch toward the lower part of the screen, and another toward the top left.  They are each about 1 inch in diameter.  When I push the stylus on one of them and apply some light pressure, for instance, the splotch expands and radiates outward, enlarging it.  It sort of looks like a diagram of a wireless single array.  I can also put the stylus on the center of one of them and drag, and it sort of follows the stylus, then, in an elastic way, snaps back to its original oil like round splotch shape.

With the backlight on, they can also be seen.  There are no jaggies that I am aware of, everything works fine on the screen, just these anomalies.  Any ideas what this is and what I can do?

Thank you so much in advance.
