GALAX LCD Monitors Warranty Policy

The sharp detail and vivid colors from each and every GALAX LCD panel is made up of millions of tiny pixels; the very building blocks of any image you see on your display, with the ability to project billions of color variations. However, if one pixel no longer functions properly, it will become a bright/dark pixel – displaying a color that is not intended; usually contradicting with the colors around it.


Monitor Pixel Defect Warranty Policy:

  • Bright Pixel > 3 Pixels, Bright Pixels gap < L >=15mm
  • Dark Pixel > 5 Pixels

GALAX conforms to the acceptance level of up to either 3 bright pixels or 5 dark pixels. In order to deliver the ultimate visual experience to our GALAX customers, if your panel is within our acceptance level stated, you will be eligible to claim through our warranty coverage.

Please refer to the GALAX LCD Monitor Bright/Dark Pixels Warranty Table below: 

After Purchase Bright Pixels Dark Pixels
2 Years 6 Months 1 Year (cables and bundled gifts are excluded from the warranty)


Bright / Dark Pixel Definition & Testing Conditions:

To identify non-performing pixels, the monitor shall be viewed under normal operating conditions, preferably in its native resolution, and from a normal viewing distance of at least 50 cm (16 in.). 

  • Bright Pixel: To accurately test for bright pixels, monitor must display a singular color of black imagery covering the whole resolution of the monitor.

- If a pixel appears bright/colored within this black imagery, the pixel is defined as a “bright pixel”.

  • Dark Pixel: To accurately test for dark pixels, monitor must display a singular color of white/red/green/blue covering the whole resolution of the monitor.

- If a pixel appears black under these conditions, the pixel is defined as a “dark pixel” or a missing subpixel.

GALAX will entertain any warranty request concerning non-performing pixels. However, it should be noted that non-performing pixels are innate within the current LCD panel manufacturing process. As such, GALAX cannot guarantee that the return unit to our customers will be 100% free of pixel defects or have fewer numbers of defects than the accepted standard of non-performing pixels as outlined before.
