Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use
liquid or aerosol cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such
additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as
near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a
child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with
a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and cart with care.
Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the
unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for
ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object, and
do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near
a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or bookcase, ensure that
there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for
mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.
If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer
or local power company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try
reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.
SAFETY
1
• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on
or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of
overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such
power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep
from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric
shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable
system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or
cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about
proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge
unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna
discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and
requirements for the grounding electrode.

• Do not attempt to service the TV yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions:
- when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged
- if liquid has been spilled on the unit or if objects have fallen into the unit
- if the TV has been exposed to rain or water
- if the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions
- if the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged
- when the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance
• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions. Adjusting other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore the TV to normal.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts
specified by the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part.
Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the unit.
• Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the TV is in a safe operating condition.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and
(2) This device must accept any interference that may cause undesired operation.
2 SAFETY
This television receiver provides display of television closed captioning in accordance with
§15.119 of the FCC rules.
Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format
Viewing
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on
them should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and constantly moving.
Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom
letterbox bars (wide screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total
television viewing per week.
Wide screen format televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen format full-motion video. The images displayed
on them should primarily be in the wide screen 16:9 ratio format, or expanded to fill the
screen if your model offers this feature, and constantly moving. Displaying stationary
graphics and images on screen, such as the dark side-bars on non-expanded standard
format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 15% of the
total television viewing per week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports,
video game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics and patterns, should
be limited as described above for all televisions. Displaying any stationary images that
exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle,
but permanent burned-in ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or
dark bars. On television models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to
view the different formats as a full screen picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven
CRT aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is
not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.

Your Samsung TV can create a "surround" effect such that the sound seems to come
from all directions. Once the “Surround” is set to “On”, the setting applies to sound
effects such as Standard, Music, Movie and Speech.
• Auto Volume
Each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, which can make it necessary
to adjust the volume every time the channel is changed. “Auto volume” lets you automatically adjust the volume of the desired channel by lowering the sound output when
the modulation signal is high or by raising the sound output when the modulation
signal is low.
• Melody
You can hear clear a melody sound when the TV is powered on or Off.
