Digital TV notice
Functionalities related to Digital TV (DVB) are only available in countries/areas where DVB-T (MPEG2 and MPEG4 AVC) digital terrestrial signals are
broadcasted or where you are able to access to a compatible DVB-C (MPEG2 and MPEG4 AAC) cable-TV service. Please check with your local
dealer the possibility to receive DVB-T or DVB-C signal.
DVB-T is the DVB European consortium standard for the broadcast transmission of digital terrestrial television and DVB-C is that for the broadcast
transmission of digital TV over cable. However, some differentiated features like EPG (Electric Programme Guide), VOD (Video On Demand) and so
on, are not included in this specification. So, they cannot be workable at this moment.
Although this TV set meets the latest DVB-T and DVB-C standards, as of [August, 2008], the compatibility with future DVB-T digital terrestrial and
DVB-C digital cable broadcasts cannot be guaranteed.
Depending on the countries/areas where this TV set is used some cable-TV providers may charge an additional fee for such a service and you may
be required to agree to terms and conditions of their business.
Some Digital TV functions might be unavailable in some countries or regions and DVB-C might not work correctly with some cable service providers.
For more information, please contact your local Samsung customer care centre.
✎✎ The reception quality of TV may be affected due to differences in broadcasting method between the countries. Please check the TV
performance in the local SAMSUNG Authorized Dealer, or the Samsung Call Centre whether it can be improved by reconfiguring TV setting or
User Instructions
• Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as on a video game) 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 of the
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
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 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.
✎✎ 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
✎✎ IMPORTANT: Image retention issues are not covered by your Samsung® warranty.

Wiring the Mains Power Supply Plug (UK Only)
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.
The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code:
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.
