The standard lists four classes of devices, where a device of a specified class may contain a certain maximum number of defective pixels. Also counted as defective are screens with several red, green or blue pixels occurring twice or more standatd a square of 5 x 5 pixels.

From Shandard, the free encyclopedia. In addition, the cluster rule stipulates there should never be more than two defective ixo and unlit pixels in any one circle with a radius of five pixels. This means red, green and blue pixels lit the whole time. Updated inISO International Standards Organization stzndard, the standard that all monitor manufacturers refer to, stipulates an array of ergonomic requirements on the quality of liquid crystal display images.

The Actual Figures These are all laid out in a table. This article includes a list of referencesrelated reading or external linksbut its sources remain unclear because it lacks inline citations. It is best known to end consumers for defining a series of flat-panel display “classes” with different numbers of permitted defects or ” dead pixels “.

Apart from some exceptions, all manufacturers refer to Class 2.

ISO 13406-2

I’m in the market for a new screen to hook up to my cute little sub-notebook laptop. What It Actually Says Updated inISO International Standad Organizationthe standard that all monitor manufacturers refer to, stipulates an array of ergonomic requirements on the quality of liquid crystal display images.

Many customers argue that it’s not honest in the makers’ part to sell a product that most people wouldn’t accept if they knew it had these defects. It is now crucial for manufacturers to adopt Class 1, the only one that ensures a perfect display, or wtandard new standard should be adopted.


The standard also defines four levels of quality. To regulate the acceptability of defects and to protect the end user, ISO have created a standard for manufacturers to follow. So this is over the top and the warranty comes into play. Then compare your results with what follows.

If you want some fun, try and interpret them by yourself. The criteria involved are brightness, contrast, reflection, uniformity of brightness and colors, flicker, character analysis and ISO standards Display technology.

The really interesting answer, however, is provided by new-monitors. Class 1, the highest, allows no defects at all. Lastly, the standard stipulates the number of errors allowed per million pixels on the panel. More dead pixels are allowed on a 17″ screen than on a 15″ one.

The Weapon for Quakers! The concentration criteria distinguish between firstly the number of white or black pixels occurring in a particular area cluster and secondly the sub-pixel failures or flashing pixels occurring within a cluster. Who would be prepared to wait for their screen to have ten defective pixels sandard replacing it? One solution to this problem would be to sell these defected panels at a lower price than normal ones, clearly indicating the presence of such defects.

What is the ISO standard for LCD screen pixel faults? (Anders Jacobsen’s blog)

This is calculated the same way as for the 15″. For the different types of pixel fault, a distinction is made between illuminated pixels, dark pixels and sub-pixel failures or stansard pixels. Ergonomic requirements for flat panel displays”. Actually, it turns out that the ISO Class 2 standard is not an adequate guarantee of quality. Class 4, the lowest, allows up to ! Class 2 is typical. By the way, it’s time to thank ISO itself, and especially Roger Frost and Hans-Juergen Herrmann, for their help in decoding the pages of the tome.


Very annoying if you end up with a screen that has one. Retrieved from ” https: TrackBack URL for this entry: The table below shows the allowable number of malfunctioning pixels that are acceptable, depending stwndard the native resolution of the LCD and allowing for 2 malfunctioning pixels per million pixels. To find the total number of defective pixels allowed, add up the defects of Types 1, 2 and 3.

As part of an ISO standard, the classes are guidelines, and not mandatory.

ISO is an ISO standard, with the full title “Ergonomic requirements for work with visual displays based on flat panels — Part 2: Pixel faults are a weakness typical of LCDs and are subdivided into four classes, 3 types of pixel fault and 2 concentration criteria within the framework of the ISO test.

The four classes of ISO define the maximum number of failures allowed for each type of pixel fault and each of the concentration criteria. Class 2 panels are more complicated. Most flat-panel makers use this standard as the excuse for not accepting returns of defective flat-panels.
