They indicate that the optimum internal settings of the display panel installed by the factory need to be fine-tuned to the application or workplace lighting conditions.

However there are some colors which liquid-crystal displays cannot represent easily when driven by an analog source. The display creates these colors by switching alternate pels on and off, or half off. If you cannot get an acceptable rendering of a particular color, the user may have to choose another.

Non adjustable Effects 
Liquid-crystal displays are liable to experience condition refereed to as failed sub-pixels. The user becomes aware of them as dark or bright pinpoints which appear, in every application, at the same place, or places, on the screen.
