Important

Regarding

Viewing

Warranty

Television

Information

Format

Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen widthto height) are primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The imagesdisplayed 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 Iogos, 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 (LCDs) 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 LCD aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your

Samsung limited warranty.

[Note]

If a still image is displayed for an extended period of time, residual images or blurring may appear.

When you need to leave the monitor unused for an extended period of time, adjust the settings so that the monitor automatically goes into energy saving mode or activates the screen saver to display moving images.

Memorizing the Channels

Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both "off-air" (antenna) and cable channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH ^ and CH x.buttons to scan through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by entering the channel digits. There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a broadcast source, memorizing the channels qautomatic) 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).

Note : STD, HRC and IRC identify various types of cable

TV systems, Contact your local cable company to identify the type of cable system that exists in your particular area.

At this point the signal source has been selected.
