How to know if backlight short is fixed?

Metin:

I have a 15" Retina Display that got some moisture in it (visible as bright spots in lower corners of screen) and apparently shorted the backlight, causing the backlight fuse on the logic board to blow. I subsequently put the display clamshell in a plastic bag, along w/ 2 large desiccant bags. That was several days ago. When I have the logic board replaced or repaired, is there any way I can check the display first to make sure it's not going to pop the fuse again?
 
Thanks,
 
Fred
 
 
EDIT: I have been able to get the fuse replaced (thanks, James!), but found that the backlight short was still present. After another fuse replacement due to popping the first, I'd like to know if there's any way w/ a multimeter (perhaps on the display cable MLB connection?) or other tool to check to see if/when I get the short fixed.
 
Related question: Since the Retina Display is essentially impenetrable as far as repairs go, can anyone offer tips on how to get any remaining moisture (from isopropyl alcohol) out of it and fix the short?
