A Guide to Digital TV
• What is Digital Television?
Digital television (DTV) is a new way of transmitting high quality video and audio to your TV set.
Using DTV, broadcasters can transmit high definition TV (HDTV) images, Dolby digital surround
audio, and new services such as multicasting (transmitting more than one program on the same
TV channel) and datacasting. Several of these services can be combined into a single digital
broadcast.
Digital Television Services
• Digital Picture Quality
DTV programs are transmitted in two different formats. The first is Standard Definition Television
(SDTV) and the second is High Definition Television (HDTV).
• SDTV program formats include 480-line interlaced (480i) and 480-line progressive (480p) video.
480i programs are essentially a digital version of our current analog TV programs, while the 480p
format offers improved image detail over 480i. Some 480p programs are broadcast in widescreen
and are comparable to progressive-scan DVD movies in image quality.
• HDTV program formats include 1080-line interlaced (1080i) and 720-line progressive (720p).
Both HDTV formats are always broadcast in widescreen, and offer much higher picture quality than
SDTV.
• Dolby Surround Sound
With DTV, you can listen to a variety of Dolby digital audio formats from Dolby Surround 2.0 to
Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, using your home audio system. Many HDTV programs are now
broadcast with DD 5.1 soundtracks.

CableCARD and Digital Cable Ready TVs
CableCARD and Digital Cable Ready TVs are the products of a new digital cable standard.
This new standard is called OpenCable and it is a concerted effort to standardize the digital cable
service network interface in North America. For more information, please refer to www.cablelabs.com.
Digital Cable Ready TVs are equipped with a proper digital cable tuner to receive digital cable signals
from your local cable service provider. They are also designed to work with digital cable card modules
(PCMCIA card modules called CableCARDs). These PCMCIA card modules or CableCARDs will be
provided by your local cable service provider after a proper subscription process.
The provided CableCARD from your local cable service provider needs to be inserted into the
CableCARD slot of a Digital Cable Ready TV. Please refer to page 22 for how to insert the CableCARD.
A digital set-top box which used to be provided by the cable service provider is no longer needed with
Digital Cable Ready TVs and CableCARDs.
When CableCARD is inserted into the slot, the TV screen will show the message that CableCARD is
inserted and tries to download necessary data such as channel information or subscription information
from your digital cable service provider. When you insert CableCARD for the first time, this process
could take few minutes depending on the amount of data your cable provider needs to send.
During this process the digital cable service provider or CableCARD may display messages on the TV
screen to help or give you further information.
Please contact your local cable provider for more information on service availability and how to
acquire a CableCARD.

Q&A
1. Is the antenna I use for existing TV reception good enough for DTV?
Over-the-air (OTA) digital TV broadcasting uses the same channels as analog TV and works well
with many existing TV antennas. However, DTV broadcast channel assignments are different than
analog channels. You should find out whether your local DTV broadcasts are on VHF (channels
2-13) or UHF (channels 14-69) to see if you need a different antenna.
If your DTV channels are on UHF and you already get good UHF reception, your present antenna
may work fine. The same holds true for VHF DTV reception. Note that in some markets, both VHF
and UHF channels are used for DTV broadcasts.
You can find out the latest DTV channel assignments for your area by browsing selected Internet
web sites such as www.titantv.com, www.10000watts.com, and www.fcc.gov.
2. How difficult is it to receive DTV signals indoors?
This depends on whether your local DTV stations are running full power or not and how close your
location is to the transmission tower. DTV receivers do not require as much signal as analog TV
receivers to produce high-quality images and sound.
Once the DTV signal level exceeds a certain threshold at the receiver, the digital video and audio
data is decoded at the same quality it was originally encoded for broadcast.
This is a big advantage for DTV over analog TV - there is no noise, ghosting, static, or scratchy
audio.
3. How can I connect an antenna in my townhouse, co-operative apartment,
condominium, or apartment?
The Federal Communications Commission’s OTARD Rule (part of the Telecommunications Act of
1996) allows residents of condominiums, townhouse, or members of neighborhood associations to
put up outside antennas for reception of broadcast TV signals as long as those antennas are not
located in common areas and are no more than 12’ in height.
Residents of rental units (apartments, etc.) are not covered by the OTARD rules and will have to use
indoor antennas to receive DTV broadcasts. It is possible that the landlord of an apartment complex
can provide broadcast DTV signals via a master TV antenna system to each apartment.
4. Can I connect my DTV set-top receiver to my cable TV service?
Cable TV systems use a different method for transmitting digital TV programs that is currently
incompatible with broadcast DTV set-top receivers. So you will still need to use an outdoor or
indoor antenna to receive OTA broadcast DTV programs.
The good news is that you won’t have to pay a monthly or per-program charge to watch OTA DTV
and HDTV programs. They’re free, unlike subscription satellite TV or premium cable TV. All you
need is an antenna and a DTV set-top receiver to enjoy clear, sharp widescreen images and
high-quality audio.

Memorizing the Channels
Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both “off-air” (antenna) and cable
channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH
and CH
buttons to scan
through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by entering the channel digits.
There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a broadcast source, memorizing the channels
(automatic) and adding and deleting channels (manual).
Selecting the Video Signal Source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels,
you must specify the type of signal source that is connected to the TV
(i.e., an antenna or cable system).

Checking the Digital-Signal Strength
Digital
Unlike analog channels, which can vary in reception quality from “snowy” to clear, digital (HDTV)
channels have either perfect reception quality or you will not receive them at all. So, unlike analog
channels, you cannot fine tune a digital channel.
You can, however, adjust your antenna to improve the reception of available digital channels.

Sound Control
Auto Volume
Each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, and it is inconvenient to adjust the volume
every time the channel is changed. “Auto Volume” automatically adjusts 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.

Replacing the Lamp
• Why do I need to replace the lamp?
The lamp used in a DLP TV has a limited lifespan. For the best screen quality it needs to be
replaced periodically. After replacing the lamp, the screen quality will be bright and clear as new.
• When do I need to replace it?
It should be replaced when the screen becomes darker, less clear or when all three LEDs on the
front (TIMER, LAMP, & STAND BY/TEMP) are flashing.
• Check before lamp replacement
1. The lamp must be the same code number and type.
2. The lamp type is indicated on the right side of the TV. It is also indicated on the lamp case.
3. After checking the code number for the lamp, give the code number to the store where you
purchased the TV or to a Samsung Service center.
• Caution
1. Replace with the correct code numbered lamp to avoid damage to the TV.
2. Turn the power off and wait for 30 minutes before replacing the lamp as it will be hot.
3. Do not touch the glass part of the lamp with your bare hands nor insert any foreign object
inside the cover as it may cause poor screen quality, electric shock or fire.
4. Do not place the old lamp near flammable objects or within the reach of children.
5. Be sure to connect this TV directly to an AC wall outlet. If the TV’s AC plug is connected to a
cable box or other source, it will not allow for proper cool down time.

• For replacement, you will need a 5.91-Inch screwdriver and a pair of gloves.
1
Unplug TV, then use a
screwdriver to remove the
screws.
2
Remove the Lamp cover.
3
Remove the screw securing
the Lamp by using a
screwdriver.
4
Separate the Lamp from the
engine by holding the handle
and pulling it out.
5
To reinstall the Lamp, follow
these steps in reverse order.
NOTES
• Be sure the replacement Lamp is the same type.
• After replacing the lamp, align the lamp cover with the groove and secure the screws.
• The TV will not turn on if the lamp cover is not correctly closed (as this will activate the protective
circuit).

Cleaning and Maintaining Your TV
With proper care, your TV will give you many years of service. Please follow these guidelines to
get the maximum performance from your TV.
Placement
• Do not put the TV near extremely hot, cold, humid or dusty places.
• Do not place the TV near appliances with electric motors that create magnetic fields, such as
vacuum cleaners.
• Keep the ventilation openings clear; do not place the TV on a soft surface, such as cloth or
paper.
• Place the TV in a vertical position only.
Liquids
• Do not handle liquids near or on the TV. Liquids that spill into it can cause serious damage.
Cabinet
• Never open the cabinet or touch the parts inside.
• Wipe your TV with a clean, dry cloth. Never use water, cleaning fluids, wax, or chemicals.
• Do not put heavy objects on top of the cabinet.
• This DLP TV projects the image onto a large screen by applying an optical system.
If you place the TV set face down, it might cause a problem because dirt, or some other
contaminant may become attached to the inside of the TV set.
Temperature
• If your TV is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place, unplug the power cord, and allow
at least two hours for moisture that may have formed inside the unit to dry completely.
Using Your TV in Another Country
If you plan to take your TV with you to a foreign country, please be aware of the different
television systems that are in use around the world. A TV designed for one system may not work
properly with another system due to differences in the TV channel frequencies.
