Abstract

Disclosed is a method for displaying a half tone image on a liquid crystal display (LCD) device by selectively supplying a video input signal to the LCD device. As shown in a drawing, a period of vertical synchronous pulses (V SYNC) applied to the control display operations of the LCD device is divided into the plural sub-periods, e.g., Tl through T5 and T6 through T10. During the first V SYNC period, the video input signal is supplied to the LCD device during the sub-periods T1, T3 and T5, and the driving voltage of positive polarity is applied. During the second V SYNC period, the video input signal is supplied to the LCD device during the sub-period T7 and T9, and the driving voltage of negative polarity is applied.
