Before connecting any external devices and cables to the TV, first verify the model number. A sticker
containing the model number is attached to the back of the TV. The connection method varies
depending on the model.
An aerial must be connected to the TV in order to receive broadcast signals.
"" An aerial connection is not necessary when a cable box or satellite receiver is used.
Connect the correct aerial cable according to your viewing environment to the TV's aerial connector, as
shown in the diagram.
Video Device Connection
Your TV has a variety of connectors for video input from external devices such as cable boxes, satellite
receivers, Blu-ray players, DVD players, camcorders, and gaming consoles. Below is a list of featured
connectors shown in descending order of picture quality.
●● HDMI
●● Component
●● AV
Connect a video device to the TV via an HDMI connector for the best picture quality. If the device does
not have an HDMI connector, try a component connector to get the next best picture quality.
"" The number of connectors and their names and locations may vary depending on the model.
"" Refer to the external device's operating manual when connecting it to the TV. The number of external device
connectors and their names and locations may vary depending on the manufacturer.
HDMI Connection
Before connecting any external device or cable to the TV, first verify the TV's model number. A
sticker containing the model number is attached to the back of the TV. The connection method varies
depending on the model.
The following types of HDMI cables are recommended:
●● High-Speed HDMI Cable
●● High-Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet
HDMI cables have certain requirements:
"" Use an HDMI cable with a thickness of 14 mm or less.
"" Using a non-certified HDMI cable may result in a blank screen or a connection error.
"" Some HDMI cables and devices may not be compatible with the TV due to different HDMI specifications.
"" This TV does not support HDMI Ethernet Channel. Ethernet is a LAN (Local Area Network) built with coaxial
cables standardised by the IEEE.
Refer to the diagram and connect the HDMI cable to the video device's HDMI output connector and the

Installing an Anti-Theft Kensington Lock
A Kensington Lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for the
Kensington 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 Kensington slot.
The lock is sold separately.
The method of using a Kensington Lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the Kensington Lock
manual for more information.
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 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 security key using characters and numbers. This security key is then
needed to connect to a security-enabled AP.
Wireless Security Protocols
The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols and is unable to connect to
non-certified wireless routers:
●● 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.

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 x 1080.
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:

●● 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 standardised 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 colour 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 colour-coded red (R), blue (B), and green (G) and offer the best
picture quality possible for an analogue connection.
