Dead Pixel Policy For LCD and TFT Monitors.

If your query relates to a Monitor, specifically in relation to dead pixels, please be aware that all of Palicomps suppliers and therefore Palicomp Ltd conform to the ISO 13406-2 standard – the acceptable number of dead pixels based on screen size and resolution.  A brief outline of this is below.

All monitors stocked by Palicomp Ltd are class II Products and as such any monitors with dead pixels of equal to or less than those defined within the ISO 13406-2 standard will not be accepted for return.

ISO 13406-2 Guidelines for Pixel Defects

LCD displays are made up of a set number of pixels and each pixel is made from 3 sub-pixels; one Red, one Blue and one Green.  Every sub-pixel is addressed by its own transistor and so the manufacture of a glass substrate is very complex.  Due to the nature of the manufacturing process, occasional defects can occur.  Pixel defects or failures cannot be fixed or repaired and can happen at any stage in the LCD's life.

To regulate the acceptability of defects and to protect the end user, ISO have created a standard for manufacturers to follow.  ISO 13406-2 recommends how many defaults are acceptable in a display before it should be replaced, within the terms & conditions of warranty. 

All reputable manufacturers conform to and support the ISO 13406-2 standard.

The table below shows the allowable number of malfunctioning pixels that are acceptable, depending on the native resolution of the LCD and allowing for 2 malfunctioning pixels per million pixels.


The standard lists four pixel fault classes. Three types of defective pixels are described:

type 1 = a hot pixel (always on, being colour white)

type 2 = a dead pixel (always off, meaning black)

type 3 = a stuck pixel (one or more sub-pixels (red, blue or green) are always on or always off)


The table below shows the maximum number of allowed defects (per type) per 1 million pixels.

While Palicomp Ltd will replace your screen if it falls into one of these fault categories, or if you experience any other faults, we generally recommend contacting the manufacturer directly.  This is due to their excellent swap out service, speed of replacement and the high standards of technical support you will receive under the terms of their 3 year warranty.
