IMPORTANT: Always activate a moving screen
saver program when you leave your monitor
unattended. Always activate a periodic screen
refresh application if your monitor will display
unchanging static content. Uninterrupted
display of still or static images over an
extended period may cause “burn in”, also
known as “after-imaging” or “ghost imaging”,
on your screen.
"Burn-in", "after-imaging", or "ghost imaging"
is a well-known phenomenon in monitor
panel technology. In most cases, the “burned
in” or “after-imaging” or “ghost imaging” will
disappear gradually over a period of time after
the power has been switched off.
Warning
Severe” burn-in” or “after-image” or “ghost image”
symptoms will not disappear and cannot be
repaired. The damage mentioned above is not
covered under your warranty.
Service
• The casing cover should be opened only by
qualified service personnel.
• If there is any need for any document for
repair or integration, please contact with
your local service center. (please refer to the
chapter of "Consumer Information Center")
• For transportation information, please refer to
"Technical Specifications".
• Do not leave your monitor in a car/trunk
under direct sun light.

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 19" XGA
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.
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.
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
Two adjacent lit sub pixels:
- Red + Blue = Purple
- Red + Green = Yellow
- Green + Blue = Cyan (Light Blue)
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 black pixel. Other
combinations of lit and dark sub pixels appear as
single pixels of other colors.
Three adjacent lit sub pixels (one white pixel)
27
Downloaded from ManualMonitor.com Manuals
7. Customer care and warranty
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.
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.
Proximity of Pixel Defects
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.
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.
BRIGHT DOT DEFECTS
1 lit subpixel
2 adjacent lit subpixels
3 adjacent lit subpixels (one white pixel)
