Important Warranty Information Regarding Television Format Viewing
✎✎ See the warranty card for more information on warranty terms.
Wide screen format PDP Displays (with 16:9 aspect ratios, the ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily designed to view wide screen format fullmotion 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, with the images constantly in motion. Displaying stationary graphics and images on the screen, such as the dark sidebars on non-expanded
standard format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 5% of the total television viewing per week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market crawls, video game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics
and patterns, should be limited as described above for all televisions. Displaying stationary images for more than 5% of total viewing time can cause
uneven aging of your PDP display and leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the PDP picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and
images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars. On PDP models that offer picture sizing features, use these
controls to view different formats as a full screen picture.
Be careful about the television formats you select and the length of time you view them. Uneven PDP aging as a result of format selection and use, as well
as burned in images, are not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.

Important User Information
• Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as that from a video game) on the plasma display panel for more than a few minutes. Still images can cause screen
image retention (burn in). To avoid such image retention, reduce the degree of brightness and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image.
• Heat on the top of the Plasma TV
The top side of the TV may become hot after long periods of use as heat dissipates from the panel through the vent hole in the upper part of the TV.
This is normal and does not indicate any defect or operational failure of unit.
However, children should be prevented from touching the upper part of the TV.
• The TV is making a ‘cracking’ noise.
A ‘cracking’ noise may occur when the TV contracts or expands due to a change in the surrounding environment such as temperature or humidity.
This is normal and not a defect.
• 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 the borders on the left, right, top, or bottom of
the screen. Playing a DVD or a game console may have a similar effect.
Damage caused by the above effect is 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 after-images.
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.

Network Connection
You can set up your TV so that it can access the Internet through your local area network (LAN) using a wired or wireless
connection.
Network Connection - Wireless
You can connect your TV to your LAN through a standard wireless router or modem. To connect wirelessly, you must first
attach a “Samsung Wireless LAN Adapter” (WIS09ABGN, WIS09ABGN2, or WIS10ABGN - sold separately) to either the USB
port on the back of your TV. See the illustration below.

LAN Adapter
Samsung’s Wireless LAN adapter is sold separately and is offered by select retailers, Ecommerce sites and Samsungparts.
com. Samsung’s Wireless LAN adapter supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g and n communication protocols. Samsung
recommends using IEEE 802.11n. When you play video over a IEEE 802.11b/g connection, the video may not play smoothly.
Most wireless network systems incorporate a security system that requires devices that access the network through an access
point or AP (typically a wireless IP Sharer - router or modem) to transmit an encrypted security code called an access key.
Your TV is compatible with the following security protocols:
yy Authentication Mode: OPEN, SHARED, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
yy Encryption Type: WEP, TKIP, AES
If you select Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode is selected and the Encryption type is set to WEP, TKIP or TKIP
AES (WPS2Mixed) on your AP or wireless router, Samsung TVs will not support a connection in compliance with new Wi-Fi
certification specifications.

Securing the TV to the Wall
Caution: Pulling, pushing, or climbing on the TV may cause the TV to fall. In particular, ensure your
children do not hang over or destabilize the TV. Doing so may cause the TV to tip over, causing serious
injuries or death. Follow all safety precautions provided in the included Safety Flyer with your TV. For
added stability and safety, you can purchase and install the anti fall device as described below.
The TV-Holder Kit (Sold Separately):
The parts below are included in the TV Holder kit. In addition, you need to provide a wood screw, screw and molly, or other
screw appropriate for the wall or cabinet you intend to secure the TV-Holder string to. We recommend a size M4xL20 wood
screw.
TV-Holder (BN96-15753A)
Screw (M8 X L19)
Installing the TV-Holder
1. Remove the screw attached to the back of your TV, and then connect the TV-Holder to the TV with the screw included in
the TV-Holder Kit that is designated for your TV.
✎✎ Make sure to use only the appropriate supplied screw. If you use a different screw, you can damage your TV.
2. Firmly fasten the screw you provided (size M4xL20 or similar) to the wall or cabinet where the TV is to be installed.
✎✎ If you fasten the screw to the wall, we recommend you drive the screw into a stud. If that is not possible, use a
molly to anchor the screw.
3. Tie the TV-Holder cord to the screw fastened on the wall or cabinet so that the TV is fixed. See the illustrations below.
✎✎ Install the TV close to the wall so that it does not fall.
✎✎ When attaching the TV-Holder cord to the wall, tie the cord level with the ground or slanted downwards for safety
purposes.
✎✎ Check the cord occasionally to make sure it is secure.
✎✎ Before moving the TV, separate the connected cord first.
Wall
4. Verify all connections are properly secured. Periodically check the connections for any sign of fatigue or failure. If you have
any doubt about the security of your connections, contact a professional installer.
