Safety precautions and maintenance
WARNING: Use of controls, adjustments, or procedures other than those
specified in this documentation may result in exposure to shock, electrical
hazards, and/or mechanical hazards.
Read and follow these instructions when connecting and using your computer monitor:
● Unplug the monitor, if you are not going to use it for an extensive period of time.
● Unplug the monitor, if you need to clean it with a slightly damp cloth. Wiping the screen with a dry
cloth is possible when the power is off. However, never use alcohol, solvents, or ammonia-based
liquids.
●
Consult a service technician if the monitor does not operate normally when following the instructions
in this manual.
●
The casing cover should be opened only by qualified service personnel.
Keep the monitor out of direct sunlight and away from stoves or any other heat source.
Remove any object that could fall into the vents or prevent proper cooling of the monitor’s electronics.
Do not block the ventilation holes on the cabinet.
Keep the monitor dry. To avoid electric shock, do not expose it to rain or excessive moisture.
When positioning the monitor, make sure the power plug and outlet are easily accessible.
If turning off the monitor by detaching power cable or DC power cord, wait for 6 seconds, then attach
the power cable or DC power cord for normal operation.
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
To avoid the risk of shock or permanent damage to the set, do not expose the monitor to rain or
excessive moisture.
●
When positioning the monitor, make sure the power plug and outlet are easily accessible.
IMPORTANT: Always activate a screen saver program during your application . If a still image in high
contrast remains on the screen for an extended period of time, it may leave a so called "after-image"
or "ghost image" in front of the screen. This is a well-known phenomenon that is caused by the
shortcomings inherent in the LCD technology. Most of the time the after-image will disappear
gradually over a period of time after switching off the power. Be aware that the after-image symptom
can not be repaired and is not covered under warranty.
●
Consult a service technician if the monitor does not operate normally when operating instructions of this
manual are followed.

Digital Visual Interface (DVI)
The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) specification provides a high-speed digital connection for visual data types
that is display technology independent. The interface is primarily focused at providing a connection between
a computer and its display device. The DVI specification meets the needs of all segments of the PC industry
(workstation, desktop, laptop, etc.) and will enable these different segments to unite around one monitor
interface specification.
The DVI interface enables:
1. Content to remain in the lossless digital domain from creation to consumption.
2. Display technology independence.
3. Plug and play through hot plug detection, EDID and DDC2B.
4. Digital and Analog support in a single connector.

Energy Star Computers Programme
An energy conservation programme launched by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the
primary aim of promoting the manufacture and marketing of energy-efficient office automation equipment.
Companies joining this programme must be willing to commit themselves to manufacturing one or more
products capable of going into a low -power state (< 30 W) either after a period of inactivity or after a
predetermined time selected by the user.

LCD Liquid Crystal Display
An alphanumeric display using the unique properties of liquid crystal to form characters. The latest flat-panel
displays comprise a matrix of hundreds or thousands of individual LCD cells that generate text and colorful
graphics on a screen. They consume little power though they do require external lighting to make them
legible to the user.

U
USB or Universal Serial Bus
A smart plug for PC peripherals. USB automatically determines resources (like driver software and bus
bandwidth) required by peripherals. USB makes necessary resources available without user intervention.
● USB eliminates "case angst" -- the fear of removing the computer case to install add-on peripherals.
And USB also eliminates adjustment of complicated IRQ settings when installing new peripherals.
●
USB does away with "port gridlock." Without USB, PCs are normally limited to one printer, two Com
port devices (usually a mouse and modem), one Enhanced Parallel Port add-on (scanner or video
camera, for example) and a joystick. More and more peripherals for multimedia computers arrive on
the market every day. With USB, up to 127 devices can run simultaneously on a computer.
●
USB permits "hot plug-in." There's no need to shut down, plug in, reboot and run set-up to install
peripherals. And no need to go through the reverse process to unplug a device.
In short, USB transforms today's "Plug-and-Pray" into true Plug-and-Play!
Hub
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/glossary/glossary.htm (2 of 4) [11/22/2001 1:44:00 PM]
Glossary
A Universal Serial Bus device that provides additional connections to the Universal Serial Bus.
Hubs are a key element in the plug-and-play architecture of USB. The Figure shows a typical hub. Hubs
serve to simplify USB connectivity from the user's perspective and provide robustness at low cost and
complexity.
Hubs are wiring concentrators and enable the multiple attachment characteristics of USB. Attachment points
are referred to as ports. Each hub converts a single attachment point into multiple attachment points. The
architecture supports concatenation of multiple hubs.
The upstream port of a hub connects the hub towards the host. Each of the other downstream ports of a
hub allows connection to another hub or function. Hubs can detect, attach and detach at each downstream
port and enable the distribution of power to downstream devices. Each downstream port can be individually
enabled and configured at either full or low speed. The hub isolates low speed ports from full speed
signaling.
A hub consists of two portions: the Hub Controller and Hub Repeater. The repeater is a protocol-controlled
switch between the upstream port and downstream ports. It also has hardware support for reset and
suspend/resume signaling. The controller provides the interface registers to allow communication to/from
the host. Hub specific status and control commands permit the host to configure a hub and to monitor and
control its ports.
Device
A logical or physical entity that performs a function. The actual entity described depends on the context of
the reference. At the lowest level, device may refer to a single hardware component, as in a memory device.
At a higher level, it may refer to a collection of hardware components that perform a particular function, such
as a Universal Serial Bus interface device. At an even higher level, device may refer to the function
performed by an entity attached to the Universal Serial Bus; for example, a data/FAX modem device.
Devices may be physical, electrical, addressable, and logical.
Downstream
The direction of data flow from the host or away from the host. A downstream port is the port on a hub
electrically farthest from the host that generates downstream data traffic from the hub. Downstream ports
receive upstream data traffic.
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/glossary/glossary.htm (3 of 4) [11/22/2001 1:44:00 PM]
Glossary
Upstream
The direction of data flow towards the host. An upstream port is the port on a device electrically closest to
the host that generates upstream data traffic from the hub. Upstream ports receive downstream data traffic.

General FAQs
Q: When I install my monitor how do I do if the screen shows "Cannot display this video mode"?
A: Recommended video mode for Philips 14"/15": 1024x768 @60Hz for Philips 17"/18"
1280x1024@60Hz.
1. Unplug all cables, then connect your PC to the monitor that you used previously and which displayed
correctly.
2. In the Windows Start Menu, select Settings/Control Panel. In the Control Panel Window, select the
Display icon. Inside the Display Control Panel, select the " Settings " tab. Under the setting tab, in
box labeled " desktop area ", move the slidebar to 1024x768 pixels (14"/15") / 1280x1024 pixels
(17"/18").
3. Open " Advanced Properties " and set the Refresh Rate to 60Hz, then click OK.
4. Restart your computer and repeat step 2 and 3 to verify that your PC is set at 1024x768@60Hz
(14"/15") / 1280x1024@60Hz (17"/18").
5. Shut down your computer, disconnect your old monitor and reconnect your Philips LCD monitor.
6. Turn on your monitor and then turn on your PC
Q: What should I do when screen shows: THIS IS 85HZ OVERSCAN, CHANGE COMPUTER DISPLAY
INPUT TO 1024 x 768 @60HZ or THIS IS 85HZ OVERDRIVE, CHANGE COMPUTER DISPLAY INPUT
TO 1280 x 1024 @60HZ?
A: It means the signal input from your PC is 85Hz -- outside the range that the monitor can display.
New Generation LCD intelligent monitor capabilities temporarily override the overscan, providing
you with 10 minutes to reset timing to recommended settings.
Here's how:
Go to your Windows Start menu. Select Settings, then Control Panel. Select Display. Move to
Settings and click on the Advanced button. Under Adaptor, change the refresh rate to 56~75.
You have 10 minutes to complete the operation; if you do not complete within 10 minutes, power off
and re-power on monitor to enter changes.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: What does "refresh rate" mean to me in an LCD monitor?
A: For LCD monitors, the refresh rate is much less relevant. LCD monitors display a stable,
flicker-free image at 60Hz. There is no visible differences between 85Hz and 60Hz.
Q: What are the .inf and .icm files on the setup disk & CD-ROM? How do I install the drivers (.inf and
.icm)?
A: These are the driver files for your monitor. Follow the instructions in your user manual to install
the drivers. You computer may ask you for monitor drivers (.inf and .icm files) or a driver disk when
you first install your monitor. Follow the instructions to insert the driver disk (either floppy or
CD-ROM) included in this package. Monitor drivers (.inf and .icm files) will be installed
automatically.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: Does Refresh Rate mean to LCD?
A: Unlike CRT display technology in which the speed the electron beam is swept from the top to the
bottom of the screen determines flicker, an active matrix display uses an active element (TFT) to
control each individual pixel and thus refresh rate is not really applicable to LCD technology.
Q: Will the LCD screen resistant scratches?
A: A protective coating is applied onto the surface of the LCD, which is durable up to a certain
extent of hardness (approximately up to the hardness of a 2H pencil). In general, it is recommended
not to expose the panel surface to any excessive shocks or scratches. An optional protective cover
with greater scratch resistance is also available.
Q: How should I clean the LCD surface?
A: For normal cleaning, use the clean, soft and fine. For extensive cleaning, please use Isopropyl
alcohol. Do not use other solvents such as ethyl alcohol, ethanol, acetone, hexane, etc.
Q: Can the Philips LCD Monitor be hung on the wall or used as touch panel?
A: Yes, Philips Brilliance LCD monitors have this optional feature. The standard VESA mount holes
on back cover that allows user to mount the Philips monitor on any VESA standard ARM or
accessories. Touch panels are being developed for future applications. Check with your Philips
sales representative for more information.

Compatibility with other Peripherals
Q: Can I connect my LCD monitor to any PC, workstation or Mac?
A: Yes, all Philips LCD monitors are fully compatible with standard PC, Mac and workstation. You
may need a cable adapter to connect the monitor to your Mac system. Please contact your
dealer/reseller for more information.
Q: Are Philips LCD monitors Plug-and-Play?
A: Yes, the monitors are Plug-and-Play compatible with Windows® 95, 98, 2000 and the PC98/99
platforms.
Q: What is USB (Universal Serial Bus)?
A: Think of USB as a smart plug for PC peripherals. USB automatically determines resources (like
driver software and bus bandwidth) required by peripherals. USB makes necessary resources
available without user intervention. There are three main benefits of USB. USB eliminates "case
angst," the fear of removing the computer case to install circuit board cards -- that often require
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/safety/saf_faq.htm (4 of 8) [11/22/2001 1:44:09 PM]
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
adjustment of complicated IRQ settings -- for add-on peripherals. USB does away with "port
gridlock." Without USB, PCs are normally limited to one printer, two Com port devices (usually a
mouse and modem), one Enhanced Parallel Port add-on (scanner or video camera, for example), and
a joystick. More and more peripherals for multimedia computers come on the market every day.
With USB, up to 127 devices can run simultaneously on one computer. USB permits "hot plug-in." No need
to shut down, plug in, reboot and run set up to install peripherals. No need to go through the reverse
process to unplug a device. Bottom line: USB transforms today's "Plug-and-Pray" into true Plug-and-Play!
Q: What is a USB hub ?
A: A USB hub provides additional connections to the Universal Serial Bus. A hub's upstream port
connects a hub to the host, usually a PC. Multiple downstream ports in a hub allows connection to
another hub or device, such as a USB keyboard, camera or printer.

LCD Panel Technology
Q: What is Liquid Crystal Display?
A: A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is an optical device that is commonly used to display ASCII
characters and images on digital items such as watches, calculators, portable game consoles etc.
LCD is the technology used for displays in notebook and other small computers. Like light-emitting
diode and gas-plasma technologies, LCD allows displays to be much thinner than cathode ray tube
(CRT) technology. LCD consumes much less power than LED and gas-display displays because
they work on the principle of blocking light rather than emitting it.
Q: How are LCDs made?
A: LCDs are created from two glass plates separated from each other at a distance of a few
microns. Plates are filled with liquid crystal, then seals together. The top plate is colored with a RGB
pattern to make the color filter. Then polarizers are glued to both plates. This combination is
sometimes called "glass" or "cell." The LCD cell is assembled into a "module" by adding the
backlight, driver electronics and frame.
Q: What is polarization ?
A: Polarization is basically directing light to shine in one direction. Light is electromagnetic wave.
Electric and magnetic fields oscillate in a direction perpendicular to the propagation of the light
beam. The direction of these fields is called "polarization direction." Normal or non-polarized light
has fields in several directions; polarized light has a field in only one direction.
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/safety/saf_faq.htm (5 of 8) [11/22/2001 1:44:09 PM]
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: What differentiates passive matrix LCDs from active matrix LCDs?
A: An LCD is made with either a passive matrix or an active matrix display grid. An active matrix has
a transistor located at each pixel intersection, requiring less current to control the luminance of a
pixel. For this reason, the current in an active matrix display can be switched on and off more
frequently, improving the screen refresh time (your mouse pointer will appear to move more
smoothly across the screen, for example). The passive matrix LCD has a grid of conductors with
pixels located at each intersection in the grid.
Q: How does a TFT LCD Panel work?
A: On each column and row of the TFT LCD panel, a data source drive and a gate drive and attached
respectively. The TFT drain of each cell is connected to the electrode. The molecular arrangement of
liquid crystal elements differs depending on whether it is impressed with voltage or not. It varies the
direction of polarized light and the amount of light by letting it through different arrays of liquid
crystal elements. When two polarized filters are arranged vertically on a polarized light pole, the
light that passes through the upper polarized panel is turned 90 degrees along with spiral structure
of the liquid crystal molecules, and goes through the polarized filter at the bottom. When impressed
with voltage, liquid crystal molecules are arranged vertically from the original spiral structure and
the direction of the light is not turned in 90 degrees. In this case, light that comes through the top
polarized panel may not go through the polarized panel at the bottom.
Q: What are the advantages of TFT LCD compared to CRT?
A: In a CRT monitor, a gun shoots electrons and general light by colliding polarized electrons on
fluorescent glass. Therefore, CRT monitors basically operate with analog RGB signal. A TFT LCD
monitor is a device displaying an input image by operating liquid crystal panel. The TFT has a
fundamentally different structure than a CRT: Each cell has an active matrix structure and
independent active elements. A TFT LCD has two glass panels and the space between them is filled
in with liquid crystal. When each cell is connected with electrodes and impressed with voltage,
molecular structure of liquid crystal is altered and controls amount of inlet lighting to display
images. A TFT LCD has several advantages over a CRT, since it can be very thin and it does not
have flickering because it does not use scanning method.
Q: Vertical frequency of 60Hz optimal for an LCD monitor, why?
A: Unlike a CDT monitor, the TFT LCD panel has a fixed resolution. For example, an XGA monitor
has 1024x3 (R, G, B) x 768 pixels and higher resolution may not be available without additional
software processing. The panel is designed to optimize display for 65MHz dot clock, one of the
standards for XGA displays. Since the vertical/horizontal frequency for this dot clock is 60HZ/48KHz,
the optimum frequency for this monitor is 60Hz.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: What kind of wide-angle technology is available? How does it work?
A: The TFT LCD panel is an element controls/displays inlet of a backlight using the dual-refraction
of liquid crystal. Using the property that the projection of inlet light refracts toward the major axis of
the liquid element, it controls the direction of inlet light and displays it. Since the refraction ratio of
inlet light on liquid crystal varies with the inlet angle of the light, the viewing angle of a TFT is much
narrow than that of a CDT. Usually, viewing angle refers to the point where the contrast ration is 10.
Many ways to widen the viewing angle are currently being developed the most commonly used
approach is to use a wide viewing angle film, which widens viewing angle by varying the refraction
ratio. Also IPS (In Plane Switching) or MVA (Multi Vertical Aligned) is used for wider viewing angle.
Q: Why is there no flicker on an LCD Monitor?
A: Technically speaking, LCDs do flicker, but the cause of the phenomenon is different from that of
CRT monitor -- and has no impact of ease of viewing. Flickering in a LCD monitor refers to usually
undetectable luminance caused by the difference between positive and negative voltage. On the
other hand, CRT flickering that can irritate the human eye comes when the on/off action of the
florescent object becomes visible. Since the reaction speed of liquid crystal in a LCD panel is much
slower, this troublesome form of flickering is not present in LCD display.
Q: Why is an LCD monitor virtually free of Electro Magnetic Interference?
A: Unlike a CRT, an LCD monitor does not have key parts that generate Electro Magnetic
Interference, especially magnetic fields. Also, since LCD display utilizes relatively low power, its
power supply is extremely quiet.

TCO '99 Information
Congratulations! You have just purchased a TCO '99 approved and
labeled product! Your choice has provided you with a product
developed for professional use. Your purchase has also contributed to
reducing the burden on the environment and also to the further
development of environmentally adapted electronics products.
Why do we have environmentally labeled computers?
In many countries, environmental labeling has become an established method for encouraging the
adaptation of goods and services to the environment. The main problem, as far as computers and other
electronics equipment are concerned, is that environmentally harmful substances are used both in the
products and during their manufacture. Since it is not so far possible to satisfactorily recycle the majority of
electronics equipment, most of these potentially damaging substances sooner or later enter nature.
There are also other characteristics of a computer, such as energy consumption levels, that are important
from the viewpoints of both the work (internal) and natural (external) environments. Since all methods of
electricity generation have a negative effect on the environment (e.g. acidic and climate-influencing
emissions, radioactive waste), it is vital to save energy. Electronics equipment in offices is often left running
continuously and thereby consumes a lot of energy.
What does labeling involve?
This product meets the requirements for the TCO'99 scheme which provides for international and
environmental labeling of personal computers. The labeling scheme was developed as a joint effort by the
TCO (The Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), Svenska Naturskyddsforeningen (The
Swedish Society for Nature Conservation) and Statens Energimyndighet (The Swedish National Energy
Administration).
Approval requirements cover a wide range of issues: environment, ergonomics, usability, emission of electric
and magnetic fields, energy consumption and electrical and fire safety.
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/safety/regs/regulat.htm (1 of 11) [11/22/2001 1:44:11 PM]
Regulatory Information
The environmental demands impose restrictions on the presence and use of heavy metals, brominated and
chlorinated flame retardants, CFCs (freons) and chlorinated solvents, among other things. The product must
be prepared for recycling and the manufacturer is obliged to have an environmental policy which must be
adhered to in each country where the company implements its operational policy.
The energy requirements include a demand that the computer and/or display, after a certain period of
inactivity, shall reduce its power consumption to a lower level in one or more stages. The length of time to
reactivate the computer shall be reasonable for the user.
Labeled products must meet strict environmental demands, for example, in respect of the reduction of
electric and magnetic fields, physical and visual ergonomics and good usability.

Environmental Requirements
Flame retardants
Flame retardants are present in printed circuit boards, cables, wires, casings and housings. Their purpose is
to prevent, or at least to delay the spread of fire. Up to 30% of the plastic in a computer casing can consist of
flame retardant substances. Most flame retardants contain bromine or chloride, and those flame retardants
are chemically related to another group of environmental toxins, PCBs. Both the flame retardants containing
bromine or chloride and the PCBs are suspected of giving rise to severe health effects, including
reproductive damage in fish-eating birds and mammals, due to the bio-accumulative* processes. Flame
retardants have been found in human blood and researchers fear that disturbances in fetus development
may occur.
The relevant TCO'99 demand requires that plastic components weighing more than 25 grams must not
contain flame retardants with organically bound bromine or chlorine. Flame retardants are allowed in the
printed circuit boards since no substitutes are available.
Cadmium**
Cadmium is present in rechargeable batteries and in the color-generating layers of certain computer
displays. Cadmium damages the nervous system and is toxic in high doses. The relevant TCO'99
requirement states that batteries, the color-generating layers of display screens and the electrical or
electronics components must not contain any cadmium.
Mercury**
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/safety/regs/regulat.htm (2 of 11) [11/22/2001 1:44:11 PM]
Regulatory Information
Mercury is sometimes found in batteries, relays and switches. It damages the nervous system and is toxic in
high doses. The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that batteries may not contain any mercury. It also
demands that mercury is not present in any of the electrical or electronics components associated with the
labeled unit.
CFCs (freons)
The relevant TCO'99 requirement states that neither CFCs nor HCFCs may be used during the manufacture
and assembly of the product. CFCs (freons) are sometimes used for washing printed circuit boards. CFCs
break down ozone and thereby damage the ozone layer in the stratosphere, causing increased reception on
earth of ultraviolet light with increased risks e.g. skin cancer (malignant melanoma) as a consequence.
Lead**
Lead can be found in picture tubes, display screens, solders and capacitors. Lead damages the nervous
system and in higher doses, causes lead poisoning. The relevant TCO'99 requirement permits the inclusion
of lead since no replacement has yet been developed.
* Bio-accumulative is defined as substances which accumulate within living organisms.
** Lead, Cadmium and Mercury are heavy metals which are bio-accumulative.

1. Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2. Fit new fuse which should be a BS 1362
5A,A.S.T.A. or BSI approved type.
3. Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket
outlets, it should be cut off and an appropriate
3-pin plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should
have a value of 5A. If a plug without a fuse is
used, the fuse at the distribution board should
not be greater than 5A.
Note: The severed plug must be destroyed to
avoid a possible shock hazard should it be
inserted into a 13A socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in
accordance with the following code:
BLUE - "NEUTRAL" ("N")
BROWN - "LIVE" ("L")
GREEN & YELLOW - "EARTH" ("E")
1. The GREEN AND YELLOW wire must be
connected to the terminal in the plug which is
marked with the letter "E" or by the Earth symbol
or coloured GREEN or GREEN AND
YELLOW.
2. The BLUE wire must be connected to the
terminal which is marked with the letter "N" or
coloured BLACK.
3. The BROWN wire must be connected to the
terminal which marked with the letter "L" or
coloured RED.

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 subpixel defects on the TFT LCD 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 LCD panel
must exceed these acceptable levels. For example, no more than 0.0004% of the subpixels on a 15" XGA monitor
may be defective. Additionally, because some types or combinations of pixel defects are more noticeable than others,
Philips sets even higher quality standards for those.
Pixels and Subpixels
A pixel, or picture element, is composed of three subpixels in the primary colors of red, green and blue. Many pixels
together form an image. When all subpixels of a pixel are lit, the three colored subpixels together appear as a single
white pixel. When all are dark, the three colored subpixels together appear as a single black pixel. Other combinations
of lit and dark subpixels appear as single pixels of other colors.
Types of Pixel Defects
Pixel and subpixel defects appear on the screen in different ways. There are two categories of pixel defects and
several types of subpixel defects within each category.
Bright Dot Defects Bright dot defects appear as pixels or subpixels that are always lit or "on". These are the types of
bright dot defects:
file:///D|/Grace/K1/english/170s2b/product/pixel.htm (1 of 3) [11/22/2001 1:44:19 PM]
Philips Pixel Defect Policy
One lit red, green or blue
subpixel
Two adjacent lit subpixels:
Three adjacent lit subpixels (one
- Red + Blue = Purple
white pixel)
- Red + Green = Yellow
- Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue)
Black Dot Defects Black dot defects appear as pixels or subpixels that are always dark or "off". These are the types of
black dot defects:
One dark subpixel
Two or three adjacent dark subpixels
Proximity of Pixel Defects
Because pixel and subpixels defects of the same type that are nearby one another may be more noticeable, Philips
also specifies tolerances for the proximity of pixel defects.
Pixel Defect Tolerances
In order to qualify for repair or replacement due to pixel defects during the warranty period, a TFT LCD panel in a
Philips flat panel monitor must have pixel or subpixel defects exceeding the tolerances listed in the following tables.
