Regarding
Viewing
Warranty
Television
Information
Format
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format l'ull motion video. The images displayed on
them should pi-imari[y 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 moi-e than 1 5% of the total
television viewing per week.
Wide screen format televisions (1 6:9, the aspect i-atio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen format fuli motion video. The images displayed
on them should primarily be in the wide screen 1 6:9 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 abo\ e for all televisions. Displaying ar_y stationarly images that
exceed tile above guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle,
but permanent burned in ghost inlages in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programruing and images, and prinla_41y display full screen moving inlages, not stationaly patterns or
da_k bars. On television models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to
view the different ft_rmats as a full screen picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for vie_ving.
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.
