Panel manufacturers set limits as to how many defective dots (or sub-pixels) are deemed to be acceptable on any LCD panel.
BenQ’s manufacturer warranty covers any defects that exceed the defect specifications described in this document.

LCD displays are made of pixels. Each pixel is made up of a red, green and blue sub-pixel, each sub pixel are driven by an individual transistor. If a transistor becomes defective, the corresponding dot may be permanently light (bright) or may not light (dark). Independently of the brand and the manufacturer, it is common for one or more sub-pixels to become fixed in an unchanging state.

The defective pixel/sub-pixel phenomenon is as follows:

(1) Color white - a bright/hot sub-pixel (always ON)
(2) Color black - a dark sub-pixel (always OFF)
(3) Color red, green or blue - a stuck sub-pixel (always ON or always OFF)

 

Pixel Structure with Illustrations

  • Full-pixel vs. sub-pixel

A full pixel consists of one red, green, and blue sub-pixel.

  • What is a bright sub-pixel?

A bright sub-pixel is one that is fully lit. In the following example the blue sub-pixel remains lit even when the surrounding sub-pixels are unlit.

  • What is a dark sub-pixel?

A sub-pixel that is always colored on a white background.

Unyielding commitment to quality and the satisfaction of our customers has driven BenQ to offer a ZBD Guarantee as part of our standard Limited Warranty coverage. Even if only one bright pixel is found, a free monitor exchange is guaranteed during the Limited Warranty period.
