Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format
Viewing
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them
should primarily 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 more than 15% of the total television viewing per
week.
Wide screen format televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are
primarily designed to view wide screen format full-motion video. The images displayed on
them should primarily be in the wide screen 16:9 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 above for all televisions. Displaying any stationary images that exceed the above
guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in
ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily
display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars. On television models that
offer picture sizing features, use these controls to view the different formats as a full screen
picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. 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.

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas
If your antenna has a set of leads that
look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads” below.
If your antenna has one lead that looks
like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads” on page 12.
If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas” on page 12.
Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads
If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.
1
Place the wires from the
twin leads under the

and cable channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH

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 a cable system).

Viewing Closed Captions
Your TV decodes and displays the closed captions that are broadcast with certain TV shows.
These captions are usually subtitles for the hearing impaired or foreign-language translations.
All VCRs record the closed caption signal from television programs, so home-recorded video
tapes also provide closed captions. Most pre-recorded commercial video tapes provide closed
captions as well. Check for the closed caption symbol in your television schedule and on the

Using the V-Chip
Access to channels and programs is controlled by a password (i.e., a 4-digit secret code
that is defined by the user). The on-screen menu will instruct you to assign a password
(and you can change it later, if necessary).
Note : When the V-chip feature is active, channel-auto program features do not function.

or “group 2”).
Suppose that the TV-G rating and all of its contents (V, S, L, and D) are

and all of their contents (V, S, L, and D) are automatically locked as well.

Press the MENU button.
Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select “Setup”, then press the ENTER button.
Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select “V-chip”, then press the ENTER button.

Customizing Your Remote Control
Your TV comes equipped with a universal remote control. In addition to controlling the TV,
the universal remote control can also operate a VCR, Cable box, DVD, and Samsung set-top
box (even if your VCR, Cable box and DVD are made by manufacturers other than
Samsung).
• The remote control might not be compatible with all VCRs, DVD players and Cable boxes.
Setting Up Your Remote Control to Operate Your VCR (Cable box
or DVD player)
1
Turn off your VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
2
Press the MODE button to switch the remote control to the VCR (CABLE or
DVD) mode.
œ The remote control has five
modes: TV, STB, VCR,
CABLE and DVD.
3
On your Samsung remote control, press the SET button.
4
Enter 3 digits of the VCR (Cable box or DVD player) code listed on next page
for your brand of VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
5
Press the POWER button on the remote control. Your VCR (Cable box or
DVD player) should turn on. If your VCR (Cable box or DVD player) turns on,
your remote control is now set correctly.
œ Make sure you enter 3 digits
of the code, even if the first
digit is a “0”. (If more than
one code listed, try the first
one.)
œ If your VCR (Cable box or
DVD player) does not turn
on, repeat steps 2, 3, and 4,
but try one of the other codes
listed for the brand of your
particular VCR (Cable box or
DVD player).
6
Once your remote control is set up, press the MODE button any time you
want to use the remote to operate your VCR (Cable box or DVD player).
• When your remote is in the TV mode, the VCR (or DVD player) control buttons (REW, STOP,
PLAY/PAUSE and FF) will still operate your VCR (or DVD player).
• When your remote control is in the STB, VCR, CABLE, or DVD mode, the volume buttons still
control your TV’s volume.
