2.Special Conditions on Bright/Dark pixel defects
LCD panels are made up of millions of micro electronic pixels. If one pixel no longer functions, it will become a bright or dark pixel. In modern LCD manufacturing process, although the yield rate is up to 90 percent, it is still not uncommon for one or more pixels to become fixed in an unchanging state. However, to provide Customer with better user experiences, Atrust will provide warranty services prescribed in Section 4 herein for LCD panels that exceed the following criteria within the one (1)-year warranty term:
(1) More than 6 dark pixel defects; or
(2) More than 5 bright pixel defects; or
(3) More than 8 total combined bright and dark pixel defects.
Bright/Dark pixel defect: A pixel that remains permanently lit, resulting in a white or colored dot on a black background, is called a bright pixel or bright dot. A pixel that remains permanently unlit, resulting in a black dot on a red, green, or blue background, is called a dark pixel or dark dot. Only bright or dark dots visible to naked eye at more than 30 centimeters viewing distance would be considered as Bright/Dark pixel defects.
