The Problem
Try this!
The TV is hot.
Watching TV for an extended period of time causes the panel to generate heat.
The heat from the panel is dissipated through internal vents running along the
top of the TV. The bottom, however, may feel hot to the touch after extended
use. Children watching TV need constant adult supervision to prevent them from
touching the TV. This heat, however, is not a defect and does not affect the TV's
functionality.
The picture won’t
display in full screen.
HD channels will have black bars on either side of the screen when displaying
upscaled SD (4:3) content.
Black bars will appear at the top and bottom of the screen when you watch
movies that have aspect ratios different from your TV.
Adjust the picture size options on your external device or set the TV to full
screen.

The expansion and contraction of the TV's outer casing may cause a popping
noise. This does not indicate a product malfunction. The TV is safe to use.
The TV is making a
humming noise.
Your TV utilizes high-speed switching circuits and high levels of electrical
current. Depending on the TV's brightness level, the TV may seem slightly
noisier than a conventional TV.
Your TV has undergone strict quality control procedures that meet our
demanding performance and reliability requirements.
Some noise coming from the TV is considered normal and is not an acceptable
cause for an exchange or refund.

3D Precautions
[[ Warning
●● When viewing a 3D video under a fluorescent lamp (50 Hz – 60 Hz) or 3-wavelength lamp, you
may notice a small amount of screen flickering.
"" If this occurs, dim or turn off the light.
●● Switching the input mode while watching a 3D movie may disable the 3D function on the TV.
"" As a result, the 3D glasses may not function and the movie may not be displayed properly.
●● Ensure you are within the working distance of the glasses when you view a 3D video.
"" The images may not be viewable in 3D if you move outside of the working distance for 3 seconds.
"" If the 3D glasses are moved outside of their working distance, the signal from the TV will disconnect
and the glasses’ 3D function will turn off after several seconds. When this happens, the red LED will
turn on for 3 seconds.
●● If you lie on your side while watching TV with 3D active glasses, the picture may appear dark or
may not be visible. The actual 3D effect may be experienced differently depending on the viewer.
The 3D effect may not be visible if the visual ability of your left eye differs greatly from the visual
ability of your right eye.
●● If a part of the 3D glasses or lenses is defective or damaged, it cannot be repaired and the
glasses should be replaced. If the glasses stop working within the warranty period, the glasses
can be repaired or replaced for free. If the glasses have been damaged due to the fault of the
customer or the warranty period has expired, a new pair of glasses will have to be purchased.
●● The 3D glasses may not work properly due to interference from other 3D products or electronic
devices that operate on the 2.4GHz frequency such as a microwave oven or Internet AP. If
the 3D function malfunctions due to interference, please move all other electronic or wireless
communication devices as far away from the glasses and the TV as possible.
●● The vividness of the image may appear degraded if you view 3D video in a place that is exposed
to direct sunlight or illumination.
●● The 3D glasses may malfunction if there is an electric field or metallic object such as a steel
plate nearby. Keep the glasses as far away as possible from electric fields and metallic objects.
●● With SSG-3570 model glasses, the glasses may power off if you remain stationary while viewing
3D video for an extended period of time.
●● With SSG-3570 model glasses, if the 3D glasses do not function immediately after you put them
on when the TV is in 3D mode, take them off and then put them back on.
[[ Caution
IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION FOR 3D IMAGES. READ THE FOLLOWING
CAUTIONS BEFORE YOU OR YOUR CHILD USE THE 3D FUNCTION.
●● Adults should frequently check on children who are using the 3D function. If there are any
complaints of tired eyes, headaches, dizziness, or nausea, stop the child from viewing the 3D TV
and ensure that they rest.
●● Do not use the 3D glasses for other purposes such as general wear, sunglasses, protective
goggles, etc.
●● Some viewers may experience discomfort such as dizziness, nausea, and headaches while viewing
3D TV. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop viewing the 3D TV, remove the 3D glasses,
and rest for awhile.
●● Watching 3D pictures for an extended period of time may cause eye strain. If you experience any
eye strain, stop viewing the 3D TV, remove the 3D glasses, and rest for awhile.
●● Do not use the 3D function or 3D glasses while walking or moving around. Using the 3D function
or 3D Active Glasses while moving around may result in injury from running into objects, tripping,
and/or falling.

●● The temples on your 3D glasses are not foldable. Forcing the temples to fold will damage the 3D
glasses.
●● With SSG-3570 model glasses, do not shake your 3D glasses repeatedly. Shaking the glasses will
power them on and can cause the battery to discharge faster than it would normally.
[[ Safety Precautions
The following safety instructions are to ensure your personal safety and prevent property damage.
Please read the following to ensure the proper use of the product.
●● Do not place the product in a location exposed to direct sunlight, heat, fire, or water. Exposure
may result in a product malfunction or fire.
●● Do not apply force to the lenses of the 3D glasses. Do not drop or bend the product. Applying
force, dropping, or bending may result in a 3D glasses malfunction.
●● Keep the components of the 3D glasses out of reach of children. Especially, ensure children do
not swallow any of the components. If your child swallows a component, consult your doctor
immediately.
●● When cleaning the product, do not spray water or cleaner directly onto the surface of the product.
Spraying water or cleaner directly onto the glasses may result in fire or electric shock, damage to
the product’s surface, or cause the indicator labels on the product’s surface to come loose.
●● Do not apply chemicals containing alcohol, solvent, or surfactant such as wax, benzene, thinner,
pesticide, air freshener, lubricant, or cleaner to the product. These chemicals may cause the
product’s exterior to be discolored or cracked, or labels or instructions to be removed. Use only
a soft cloth such as superfine fibers or cotton flannels for cleaning the product as the surface
or the lenses easily crack. Because the product can be easily scratched with foreign substances,
make sure to dust off the cloth before using.
●● Do not disassemble, or attempt to repair or modify your 3D active glasses by yourself.
●● Be careful not to let the temple ends of the 3D active glasses harm your eye.
●● Do not sleep with the 3D glasses on. You can break the arms.
●● Use your hands to put on or remove the 3D glasses.
●● For SSG-5100 model glasses, use only the specified standard batteries. When replacing the
battery, insert the battery so that its polarity (+, –) is correct. Failing to do so may damage the
battery or result in fire, personal injury or environmental damage caused by liquid leaking from
the battery.
●● For SSG-5100 model glasses, keep the used battery out of the reach of children so that they do
not accidently swallow it. If your child swallows the battery, consult your doctor immediately.

Installing an Anti-Theft Lock
An anti-theft lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for the
lock slot on the back of the TV. The slot has a K icon next to it. To use the lock, wrap the lock cable
around an object that is too heavy to carry and then thread it through the TV's lock slot. The lock is
sold separately.
The method of using an anti-theft lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the lock's user manual
for more information.
"" Availability depends on the model.
Read Before Setting Up a Wireless Internet Connection
Wireless Internet Precautions
●● This TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g /n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via DLNA may not play back
smoothly.
●● To use wireless Internet, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless
router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless
network.
●● Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the
wireless router is currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or
a communications failure.
●● Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security
system, you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then
needed to connect to a security-enabled AP.
Wireless Security Protocols
The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols.
●● Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
●● Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
In compliance with the newest Wi-Fi certification specifications, Samsung TVs do not support WEP or
TKIP security encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode.
If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), you can connect the TV to your network
using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically
configures the SSID and WPA key settings.
The TV cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
Read Before Connecting a Computer (Supported
Resolutions)
When you connect your TV to a computer, set the computer's video card to one of the standard
resolutions listed in the tables below or on the next page. The TV will automatically adjust to the
resolution you choose. Note that the optimal and recommended resolution is 1920 x1080.
Choosing a resolution not included in the tables can result in a blank screen or just the power indicator
turning on.
Refer to the user manual of your graphics card for compatible resolutions.

Glossary
●● 480i/480p/720p/1080i/1080p
Generally refers to the number of effective scanning lines that determines the screen's resolution.
There are two scanning methods: interlaced and progressive.
–– Scanning
Sequential projection of pixels to form images. The higher the number of pixels, the clearer
and more vivid the images.
–– Progressive
A sequential scanning method that scans every line, one after another.
–– Interlaced
A staggered scanning method that scans every other line until the end of the screen and then
fills in the remaining lines.
Example) If the number of horizontal scan lines is 480i
Scans 240 lines from start to finish and then scans the remaining 240 lines for a total of 480
lines.
* General differences between 480i and 480p are as follows:

●● ARC (Audio Return Channel)
ARC lets the TV output digital sound to an audio device and input digital sound from the same
audio device through one HDMI cable. However, ARC is only available through the HDMI (ARC)
port and only when the TV is connected to an ARC-enabled AV receiver.
●● DVI (Digital Visual Interface)
Connecting the TV's DVI connector to a computer's DVI connector via an HDMI-to-DVI cable
lets you use the TV as a computer monitor. However, HDMI-to-DVI cables deliver video signals
only. You must connect a set of speakers to the computer using a separate cable to hear the
computer's audio.
●● HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is a method of transmitting both video and audio signals via a single cable.
●● Dynamic versus Static IP Addresses
If the network requires a dynamic IP address, use an ADSL modem or router that supports
the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP
automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS values the TV needs to
access the Internet, so they do not have to be entered manually. Most home networks use a
dynamic IP address.
If the network requires a static IP address, enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS
values manually when setting up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask,
gateway and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If the network requires a static IP address, use an ADSL modem that supports DHCP. ADSL
modems that support DHCP also allow static IP addresses.
●● Ethernet
Ethernet is a LAN (Local Area Network) that uses coaxial cables standardized by the IEEE.
●● Component Connection
Component connections are mostly used for game consoles and transmit the video signal by
splitting it into a luminance signal (Y) and two color signals (Pb and Pr). The connector is marked
as [Component IN]_(Pr, Pb, Y) on the back of the TV. On some devices, it is sometimes marked
as Cr, Cb, Y. Cb and Cr are the digital conversions of the Pb and Pr signals.
The connectors are normally color-coded red (R), blue (B), and green (G) and offer the best
picture quality possible for an analog connection.
