In this pixel fault, a cell that should not light originally is lighting on and off.
For checking this pixel fault, input ALL BLACK SCREEN and find out the cell that is lighting on and off.
DARK FAULT
In this pixel fault, a cell that should light originally is not lighting or lighting with the brightness twice as brighter as originally lighting.
For checking this pixel fault, input 100% of each R/G/B colour and find out the cell that is not lighting.
FLICKER FAULT
In the pixel fault, a cell that should light originally or not light originally is flashing on and off.
For checking this pixel fault, input ALL BLACK SCREEN signal or 100% of each RGB colour and find out the cell that is flashing on and off.
