Liquid-crystal display
A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat panel display, electronic visual display, or video display that uses the light modulating properties of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly.
LCDs are available to display arbitrary images (as in a general-purpose computer display) or fixed images with low information content which can be displayed or hidden, such as preset words, digits, and 7-segment displays as in a digital clock.
They use the same basic technology, except that arbitrary images are made up of a large number of small pixels, while other displays have larger elements.
LCDs are used in a wide range of applications including computer monitors, televisions, instrument panels, aircraft cockpit displays, and signage.
They are common in consumer devices such as DVD players, gaming devices, clocks, watches, calculators, and telephones, and have replaced cathode ray tube (CRT) displays in nearly all applications.
They are available in a wider range of screen sizes than CRT and plasma displays, and since they do not use phosphors, they do not suffer image burn-in. LCDs are, however, susceptible to image persistence.

    How bright is an old LCD tv? Sony KDL40V300 42"

    Before we replace our old Sony LCD, I was wondering what brightness it would have been, so I can compare against modern technology. It's a KDL40V3000 42". I had a quick google and I think I found 1000nits, but that sound high for a TV that's nearly 15 years old?

    LCD TV for a dark room

    I want to replace my QNED 90 with some other TV which is more capable in a dark room. QNED is not bad and overall quite good in many areas but local dimming is wonky in some difficult scenes. Blooming is ugly in such cases. It's pitty LG didn't polish algorithm to more advanced state. LG had...

    Question Bright spots on Samsung UE40MU612UK 6 Series - 40" LED-backlit LCD TV

    The picture has a band of bright spots, sort of in an inverted arc about a third of the way down the screen. So the colours there are much brighter than the rest of the screen. Noticeable all the time but particularly on black and white programmes, where the the bight spots/band is "bright"...

    If you have a Visonic MKP-150 (wireless keypad), here's how to make the LCD back lit.

    I wanted this on the internet somewhere, because it looks like Visonic fudgeed up at some point and the LCD was supposed to be back lit, but then they changed to just back lighting the keypad. Most likely a problem on the PCB somewhere too late in development to fix. You can tell this because...
