TYPES OF PIXELS' DEFECTS
1. PIXEL AND SUBPIXEL
A pixel, or an image element, is the small spot that we recognize in a LCD screen when this last remains black or blue, etc...
A pixel is made up of three sub-pixels of fundamental colours red, green and blue. Many pixels together make an image. When all the sub-pixels of a pixel are lighted up, the three coloured sub-pixels appear as a single white pixel. When they are dark, the three coloured sub-pixel appear as a single black pixel.
Due to the complexity of the manufacturing process, it must be taken into account that impurities could infiltrate into the LCD panel and, as time passes, they can lead to defects.
2. PIXELS' DEFECTS
Pixels and sub-pixel's defects appear on the screen in different manners.
The law ISO 13406-2 reveals that the defective pixels can be of four types and it specifies how many defective pixels (in a million) can be present in a monitor before considering it defective.
The categories are:
Type 1: bright points defects.
This type of defect appears when some pixels or sub-pixels remain always "lighted up", that means a cell is always bright. It shows itself as a small white square.
Type 2: dark points defects.
The defects caused by dark points appear when some pixel or sub-pixels are always dark or "turned off". In this case the cell is always turned off, and it shows itself as a small black square.
Type 3: turned on/off R, G, B subpixel.
In this case, one of the three subpixels which make a cell, remains turned on (green, red and blue) or turned off (in this case your eye will perceive the colour resulting from the two turned on).
Type 4: Pixel Cluster Failure.
In this last case it should be respected pixels' contiguity within an area of 5x5 pixels on the panel.
3. PIXELS DEFECTS PROXIMITY AND TOLERANCE
In order to allow the Consumer to identify the cases in which he can request the substitution or reparation of the LCD panel under guarantee, the chart below specifies the number of defective elements which exceed the tolerance.
