Types of Pixel Defects
Pixel and sub pixel defects appear on the screen
in different ways. There are two categories of
pixel defects and several types of sub pixel
defects within each category.
7.1 Philips’ Flat Panel Monitors Pixel
Defect Policy
Philips strives to deliver the highest quality
products. We use some of the industry's most
advanced manufacturing processes and practice
stringent quality control. However, pixel or
sub pixel defects on the TFT Monitor panels
used in flat panel monitors are sometimes
unavoidable. No manufacturer can guarantee
that all panels will be free from pixel defects,
but Philips guarantees that any monitor with an
unacceptable number of defects will be repaired
or replaced under warranty. This notice explains
the different types of pixel defects and defines
acceptable defect levels for each type. In order
to qualify for repair or replacement under
warranty, the number of pixel defects on a TFT
Monitor panel must exceed these acceptable
levels. For example, no more than 0.0004% of
the sub pixels on a monitor may be defective.
Furthermore, Philips sets even higher quality
standards for certain types or combinations
of pixel defects that are more noticeable than
others. This policy is valid worldwide.
Bright Dot Defects
Bright dot defects appear as pixels or sub pixels
that are always lit or 'on'. That is, a bright dot is
a sub-pixel that stands out on the screen when
the monitor displays a dark pattern. There are
the types of bright dot defects.
One lit red, green or blue sub pixel.
subpixel
Two adjacent lit sub pixels:
- Red + Blue = Purple
- Red + Green = Yellow
- Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue)
pixel
Pixels and Sub pixels
A pixel, or picture element, is composed of
three sub pixels in the primary colors of red,
green and blue. Many pixels together form an
image. When all sub pixels of a pixel are lit, the
three colored sub pixels together appear as a
single white pixel. When all are dark, the three
colored sub pixels together appear as a single
Three adjacent lit sub pixels (one white pixel).
31
7. Customer care and warranty
Proximity of Pixel Defects
Note
A red or blue bright dot must be more than 50
percent brighter than neighboring dots while
a green bright dot is 30 percent brighter than
neighboring dots.
Because pixel and sub pixels defects of the
same type that are near to one another may be
more noticeable, Philips also specifies tolerances
for the proximity of pixel defects.
Black Dot Defects
Black dot defects appear as pixels or sub pixels
that are always dark or 'off'. That is, a dark dot is
a sub-pixel that stands out on the screen when
the monitor displays a light pattern. These are
the types of black dot defects.
Pixel Defect Tolerances
In order to qualify for repair or replacement
due to pixel defects during the warranty period,
a TFT Monitor panel in a Philips flat panel
monitor must have pixel or sub pixel defects
exceeding the tolerances listed in the following
tables.
