EPAX 15.6" 4K Color LCD Screen
This is a 15.6" 4k color LCD screen for EPAX X156 printers. Color screens have a shorter lifespan than monochrome screens and require longer exposure times, but they are much more affordable to replace and this screen allows for the largest print area possible in an X156. Using this screen with other similar LCD printers is not supported.
This screen has tempered glass installed on top to provide some additional protection from resin leaks. If resin is spilled on top of the screen it is possible to gently shovel it off without damaging the screen. It is still important not to leak resin under the screen via the edges, so tape should be used (0.1mm kapton tape is compatible).

LCD screens are consumable technology in the 3D printing process and are not covered by the warranty. Most screen failures are actually due to resin residues in the vat being pushed into the screen. This leads to heated high stress areas that cause the LCD crystals to burn out more rapidly and sometimes can even lead to cracks in the screen. For this reason, it is extremely important to check your vat between prints and periodically filter your resin. Unnecessary high exposure times in your print settings can also shorten the life of your LCD screen.
ALWAYS make sure vat has NO residues and the build plate has nothing on it before starting a new print job.
Replacing your screen always involved re-leveling your build plate.
