With Philips' strict quality control procedures used in our Portable DVD Players, our LCD 2.4.6 Zero Bright DotTM displays are produced with zero tolerance for bright dots. Select Portable DVD Players come with Philips Zero Bright DotTM Policy to guarantee optimal screen quality. Warranty service varies from region to region.
