Network Configuration
Connecting to a Network
Connecting the Smart TV to a network gives you access to online services such as the Smart Hub, as well as software
updates.
Network Connection - Wireless
Connect the TV to the Internet using a standard router or modem.
Wireless IP Router or Modem
that has a DHCP Server
The LAN Port on the Wall
LAN Cable (Not Supplied)
Wireless Network Precautions
•• This Smart TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g /n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using IEEE
802.11n. Otherwise when you play video over a network connection, the video may not play smoothly.
•• To use a wireless network, 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 the
wireless network.
Network 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
If the wireless router has been set to Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode and the Encryption Type to
WEP or TKIP, Samsung Smart TVs will not support the connection in compliance with the new Wi-Fi certification
specifications.
If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), it is possible to connect to the network using PBC (Push
Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically configures the SSID and WPA key
settings.

2. Press the power button on the 3D glasses briefly. The 3D glasses will power on and pairing will start.
3. The message “3D glasses are connected to TV.” will be displayed on the TV screen when the pairing is successfully
completed.
•• If pairing fails, the 3D glasses will power off.
•• If the first attempt to pair fails, power the TV off and on again and perform step 2.
•• How to pair again: Press the power button on the 3D glasses for more than 1 second.
Pairing is needed again in the following situations:
•• If the 3D glasses do not function, even when the power button is pressed, especially with a 3D TV after a
repair.
•• If you want to play 3D content on another Samsung 3D TV model that belongs to the D, E, or F series released
in 2011 through 2013. You must pair the glasses with the other TV.

✎✎ WARNINGS: Image retention, commonly known as screen burn-in, can occur on most types of television if
the same image is displayed continuously. The most common causes of image retention are logos that remain
stationary on the TV screen. These logos are common on many programmes received via a Set-top Box. To
reduce this risk, avoid displaying still images for long durations and lower the brightness or contrast settings to
decrease the intensity of the picture. Extended viewing of movies and programs in aspect ratios that are different
from the aspect ratio of the TV may cause image retention. Always endeavour to avoid black borders top or
bottom by using the zoom function. This will help eliminate the black borders and fit the picture to the entire area
of the screen. Using a video game console may cause image retention and is not recommended. When using
a PC input, avoid displaying still images for long durations and reduce the brightness or contrast settings to
decrease the intensity of the picture.
✎✎ IMPORTANT: Image retention issues are not covered by your Samsung® warranty.

User Instructions
•• Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as on a video game) including the some small fixed logo on the plasma display
panel for more than several minutes as it can cause screen image retention. This image retention is also known
as “screen burn”. To avoid such image retention, reduce the degree of brightness and contrast ofthe screen when
displaying a still image.
•• Heat on the top of the Plasma TV
The top side of the product may be hot after long periods of use as heat dissipates from the panel through the vent
hole in the upper part of the product. This is normal and does not indicate any defect or operation failure of the
product.
However, children should be prevented from touching the upper part of the product.
•• The product is making a “cracking” noise.
A “cracking” noise may occur when the product contracts or expands due to a change in the surrounding
environment such as temperature or humidity. This is normal and not a defect of the unit.
•• Cell Defects
The PDP uses a panel consisting of 2,360,000(HD-level) to 6,221,000(FHD-level) pixels which require sophisticated
technology to produce. However, there may be a few bright or dark pixels on the screen. These pixels will have no
impact on the performance of the product.
•• Avoid operating the TV at temperatures below 41°F (5°C)
•• A still image displayed too long may cause permanent damage to the PDP Panel.
Watching the Plasma TV in 4:3 format for a long period of time may leave traces of borders
displayed on the left, right and centre of the screen caused by the difference of light emission on the
screen. Playing a DVD or a game console may cause similar effects to the screen.
Damages caused by the above effect are not covered by the Warranty.
•• After-images on the Screen.
Displaying still images from Video games and PC for longer than a certain period of time may produce partial afterimages.
To prevent this effect, reduce the “brightness” and “contrast” when displaying still images for a long time.
•• Warranty
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
•• Caution
The glass screen of your PDP TV can break if you accidently drop the TV. Handle the TV with care.
When moving the TV, always have two or more people pick it up and carry it as a safety precaution.
Do not lay the TV flat on its face or back.
Your Samsung Plasma TV is a high quality television that has been carefully packaged to protect the integrity of
its glass panel and component parts during shipment. It is, nonetheless, a fragile piece of electronics that requires
careful handling. Refrain from putting undue stress on any part of the packaging when shipping or unpacking the
TV. Use care when installing the TV. Avoid placing the TV in a location where it may be struck, exposed to sharp
impacts, or fall. Panel breakage caused by a fall or impact strike is not covered under the manufacturer's warranty.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
IMPORTANT NOTICE
The mains lead on this equipment is supplied with a moulded plug incorporating a fuse. The value of the fuse is
indicated on the pin face of the plug and, if it requires replacing, a fuse approved to BSI1362 of the same rating must
be used.
Never use the plug with the fuse cover omitted if the cover is detachable. If a replacement fuse cover is required, it
must be of the same colour as the pin face of the plug. Replacement covers are available from your dealer.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for the power points in your house or the cable is not long enough to reach a power
point, you should obtain a suitably approved extension lead or consult your dealer for assistance. However, if there is
no alternative but to cut off the plug, remove the fuse and then safely dispose of the plug.
Do NOT connect the plug to a mains socket as there is a risk of shock hazard from the bared flexible cord.
IMPORTANT
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
BLUE - NEUTRAL BROWN - LIVE
As these colours may not correspond to the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows : The wire coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter N or coloured BLUE or
BLACK. The wire coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal marked with the letter L or coloured BROWN
or RED.
WARNING
DO NOT CONNECT EITHER WIRE TO THE EARTH TERMINAL, WHICH IS MARKED WITH THE LETTER E OR BY
THE EARTH SYMBOL , OR COLOURED GREEN OR GREEN AND YELLOW.
