LCDTest is a small application to assist in common LCD adjustment tasks by providing test patterns. These tasks include:
  • Adjusting analog LCDs
  • Detecting dead/lazy pixels
  • Checking for panel alignment
  • Checking color transitions
These test patterns are designed to work for both monitors and projectors in single or multi-display configurations. To test the desired display device, drag the 'LCDTest' window onto the display you wish to test. Then click the 'Show Pattern' button. All test patterns are terminated with a mouse click or by pressing the ESC key.
What's New
Version 2.0:
  • factored out patterns into a pattern hierarchy
  • added hotspot pattern
  • changed color gradient pattern to leverage Quartz engine directly (not working well)
  • changed main interface to be more easily extensible
  • added pattern descriptor
  • added property list to describe patterns, devices, and flags
  • added pattern preview
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.1 or later, LCD display.

FYI, there is a current program from another developer called LCDTest available here:

I found this site with working download link:

http://lcdtest.softonic.de/mac
(it's for PPC only - no Intel-version available - maybe it works on Rosetta?)

I found LCDTest 2.0 offered by Ekim Software at http://www.ekimsoftware.com/products/lcdtest/

The app was created on 27 Nov 06, the same as the LCDTest on this page. However, the Version 2.0 new pattern features described above do not correspond to the Ekim product.

Does anyone have a working link to download this? The developer's site has been down for a while.

Note that the OFFICIAL site for LCDTest is actually http://www.bjorgs.com/wiki/index.php?title=LCDTest

I don't know who created the MacUpdate entry and I have no control over it (as you can see from the note on my wiki site).

You have near total control over the MacUpdate page for LCDTest, here. Select 'Modify Existing Listiing' and put 'LCDTest' in the search field and then make the modifications needed.

Great utility. Helped me decide between two LCD monitors--I could quickly and easy find the one with dead and stuck pixels. There was one stuck RED pixel, that I wouldn't have noticed during browser and word processor use, but that stuck out like a sore thumb when I tried a DVD. Without this utility I might not have found it.
Additionally, it has a test pattern to help you set the phase shift--something I wouldn't have know to calibrate on my new monitor.

Thanks!

Don't download 2.0b unless you're willing to compile the app. It's a beta for development purposes. I did not post it here.

Please download 1.1, which is the latest compiled version of the app.
