Question ID: 764148
I am using a damaged Viewsonic LCD monitor I purchased inexpensively. Portions of the display are distorted or dead and it looks like the glass is cracked in the corners. I know that the previous owner took out the display panel in the hopes of building a projector and later put it back in. A friend of mine is convinced that using the monitor in this state is emitting excessive harmful radiation. Is it true that a broken panel / cracked glass will increase the radiation output? Is it dangerous? I know there are "zero radiation" LCDs, but they only talk about reducing magnetic radiation, which I wouldn't think would be affected by the glass panel, but I don't know enough about electronics to be sure.

LCD flat panel has radiation too. please reference RoHS (the Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) standard.http://www.rohs.gov.uk/ lcd panel contains Pb and Hg in Fluorescent lamps,High Intensity Discharge(HID)lamps,painting or pigment or link, LCD back light and so on. if you using cracked panel , it's Liquid Crystal will have more volatilization. So, please careful!!!
