Glossary: Quality; Laptop & Laptop LCD Screen Industry Definitions

Home » Resource Center » Glossary

ScreenTek is proud to provide you this glossary of common terms in the laptop LCD screen industry, and in the laptop notebook industry. Feel free to become more familiar with the terms we use throughout our site. If you notice any glaring omissions, we'd be glad to hear about those. Drop us a line at sales@screentekinc.com.

Quality Terms » 6 definitions


Dead pixel

An occurrence when the pixel of an LCD screen shorts and remains permanently open or closed. There are two occurrences which define a dead pixel: a "lit" pixel, which appears as a randomly placed white, red, blue and/or green dot on a dark background or a "missing" pixel which appears as a black dot on light-colored background. LCD makers and laptop manufacturers have limits to how many dead pixels are allowed on a screen before they'll accept it back for a refund or exchange. For examples of various dead pixel policies, see our Quality Standards page. One simple way of determining if you have a dead pixel on your screen is to try one of many available dead pixel tests found online.
