Troubleshooting Digital TV broadcasting allows you to easily access various information services in your home creating a more information-oriented home. Q: What is the difference between HDTV and SDTV? A: There are various types of digital TVs. A: The most widely known types of digital TV are HDTV and SDTV. They are classified according to the screen quality and the video specifications. • HDTV (High Definition TV): High screen quality, very clear TV. • SDTV (Standard Definition TV): Common standard digital TV. A: An SDTV has an aspect ratio of 4:3 which is the same as that of an analog TV. HDTV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 which is similar to a cinema screen. This provides a much better screen quality than SDTV. It's like having a theater in your home. A: Digital TV broadcasting in our country is ultimately orientated towards HDTV. Q: Can I watch HD broadcasting with all digital TVs? A: You can receive all digital broadcasts, whether they are SD or HD, using any digital TV. However, you cannot enjoy HD programs, which are the highest quality digital TV programs, using an SD digital TV. Especially, as SD broadcasting has an aspect ratio of 4:3, HD broadcasting has an aspect ratio of 16:9, similar to a cinema screen. Therefore, to enjoy the full benefits of digital TV, it is better to purchase an HD digital TV. (At present, all digital TVs from Samsung Electronics have the 16:9 wide aspect ratio.) Q: Can I watch digital TV broadcasting with an analog TV? A: No. A: The analog TV cannot interpret digital signals. Therefore, a digital TV is required to watch digital TV broadcasting. Q: Can I use my present antenna to receive digital broadcasting? A: As for existing analog TV, digital TV is designed so that digital broadcasting signals are received via both indoor and outdoor antennas. A: If signal reception is very good in your environment, you can watch digital broadcasts with your existing indoor antenna. If not, it is better to install an outdoor UHF antenna. Q: How do I connect an antenna for an apartment or tenement house? A: Consult the superintendent's office or broadcasting facility administrator for your apartment or tenement house to check whether UHF reception is available. A: Even if digital TV broadcasting is available in your area, if you cannot watch it because the superintendent's office or common broadcasting facility does not rebroadcast the signal, you have to install an indoor or outdoor antenna. A: Alternatively, your local cable broadcasting company provides a digital TV service, and you can subscribe to it. A: If a cable broadcasting company is sharing a common broadcasting facility for your apartment or tenement house, it has to adjust and send digital TV signals so that they are compatible to shared viewing which is the original purpose of the common broadcasting facility.

Unit: kHz Vertical Frequency Like a fluorescent lamp, the screen has to repeat the same image many times per second to display an image to the user. The frequency of this repetition is called the Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz Information For Better Display Adjust the computer resolution and screen injection rate (refresh rate) on the computer as described below to enjoy the best picture quality. You can have an uneven picture quality on screen if the best picture quality is not provided for TFT-LCD. • Resolution: 1360 x 768 • Vertical frequency (refresh rate): 60 Hz TFT-LCD panels manufactured by using advanced semiconductor technology with a precision of 1ppm (one millionth) and above is used for this product. But the pixels of RED, GREEN, BLUE and WHITE color seem to be bright sometimes or some of black pixels could be seen. This is not from bad quality and you can use it without any problems. • For example, the number of TFT-LCD sub pixels contained in this product are 3,888,000. When cleaning the monitor and the panel outside, please apply the recommended small amount of cleaner by using a soft cloth to polish. Do not force the LCD area but rub softly. If excessive force is applied, you may stain it. If you are not satisfied with the picture quality, you can get better quality of picture by performing the "Auto Adjustment function" in display screen that is appeared as window termination button is pressed. If there's still noise after the automatic adjustment, use the Fine/Coarse adjustment function. When viewing a fixed screen for an extended period of time, a residual image or blurriness may appear. Change the mode to energy save or set a screensaver to move the picture when you need to be away from the monitor for an extended period of time. Do not display a still image( such as on a video game or when hooking up a DVD to this LCD_TV ) on the Color TFT-LCD ( Thin Film Transister Liquid Crystal Display) panel for a long time 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 this screen when displaying a still image.

PRODUCT INFORMATION (Image Retention Free) LCD Monitors and TVs may have image retention when switching from one image to another especially after displaying a stationary image for a long time. This guide is to demonstrate correct usage of LCD products in order to protect them from Image retention. Warranty Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention. Burn-in is not covered by the warranty. What is Image retention ? During normal operation of a LCD panel, pixel image retention doesn't occur. However, if the same image is displayed for a long time, a slight difference in electric charge accumulates between the two electrodes which encase the liquid crystal. This may cause the liquid crystal to build up in a certain areas of the display. Thus, the previous image is retained when switching to a new video image. All display products, including LCD, are subject to image retention. This is not a product defect. Please follow the suggestions below to protect your LCD from image retention. Power Off, Screen Saver, or Power Save Mode Ex) • • Turn the power off when using a stationary pattern. • Turn the power off for 4 hours after 20 hours in use • Turn the power off for 2 hours after 12 hours in use Use a Screen saver if possible • • Screen saver in one color or a moving image is recommended. Set the Monitor to power off with the PC Display Properties Power Scheme. Suggestions for specific applications Ex) Airports, Transit Stations, Stock Markets, Banks, and Controlling Systems We recommend that you follow set up of your display system program as below: Display Information together with Logo or Moving image cycle. Information Ex) Cycle : Display Information for 1 hour followed by a Display Logo or moving image for 1 minute. Change the Color Information periodically (Use 2 different colors). Ex) Rotate the Color Information with 2 colors every 30 minutes. Avoid using a combination of characters and background color with large difference in luminance. Avoid using Grey colors, which can cause Image retention easily. • Avoid: Colors with big difference in luminance (Black & White, Grey) Ex) • Recommended settings: Bright colors with little difference in luminance • Change the characters color and background color every 30 minutes Ex) • Every 30 minutes, change the characters with movement. Ex) The best way to protect your monitor from Image retention is to set your PC or System to operate a Screen Saver program when you are not using it. Information Image retention may not occur when a LCD panel is operated under normal conditions. Normal conditions are defined as continuously changing video patterns. When the LCD panel is operated for a long time with a fixed pattern (-over 12 hours-), there may be slight difference in voltage between electrodes that work the liquid crystal (LC) in a pixel. The voltage difference between electrodes increases with time, forcing the liquid crystal to lean. When this occurs, the previous image may be seen when the pattern is changed. To prevent this, the accumulated voltage difference must be decreased. Our LCD Monitor satisfies ISO13406-2 Pixel fault Class II Appendix Contact SAMSUNG WORLDWIDE Note If you have any questions or comments relating to Samsung products, please contact the SAMSUNG customer care center.

They are divided into Vertical and Horizontal Sync Signals. These signals display normal color images by the set resolution and frequency. Types of Sync Signals Separate This is a scheme of transmitting individual vertical and hori sync signals to the monitor. Composite This is a scheme of combining vertical and horizontal syn nals into one composite signal and transmitting it to the mo The monitor displays the color signals by separating the co site signal into original color signals. Dot Pitch The image on a monitor is composed of red, green and blue dots. The closer the dots, the higher the resolution. The distance between two dots of the same color is called the 'Dot Pitch'. Unit: mm Vertical Frequency The screen must be redrawn several times per second in order to create and display an image for the user. The frequency of this repetition per second is called the Vertical Frequency or Refresh Rate. Unit: Hz Example: If the same light repeats itself 60 times per second, this is regarded as 60 Hz. Horizontal Frequency The time to scan one line connecting the right edge to the left edge of the screen horizontally is called the Horizontal Cycle. The inverse number of the Horizontal Cycle is called Horizontal Frequency. Unit: kHz Interlace Methods Showing the horizontal lines of the screen from the top to the bottom sequentially is called the Non-Interlace method while showing odd lines and then even lines in turn is called the Interlace method. The Non-Interlace method is used for the majority of monitors to ensure a clear image. The Interlace method is the same as that used in TVs. and Non-Interlace Plug & Play This is a function that provides the best quality screen for the user by allowing the computer and the monitor to exchange information automatically. This monitor follows the international standard VESA DDC for the Plug & Play function. Resolution The number of horizontal and vertical dots used to compose the screen image is called the 'resolution'. This number shows the ac- Appendix curacy of the display. A high resolution is good for performing multiple tasks as more image information can be shown on the screen. Example: If the resolution is 1360 x 768, this means the screen is composed of 1360 horizontal dots (horizontal resolution) and 768 vertical lines (vertical resolution). RF Cable A round signal cable generally used for TV antennas. Satellite Broadcasting Balances the levels of the sound coming from each speaker in televisions with two speakers. Cable TV Whereas the terrestrial broadcasting is delivered via frequency signals through the air, cable broadcasting is transmitted via a cable network. In order to view cable TV, one must purchase a cable receiver and hook it up to the cable network. CATV "CATV" refers to the broadcasting service offered at hotels, schools and other buildings through their own broadcasting system, apart from VHF or UHF broadcasting by terrestrial broadcasters. The CATV programs may include movies, entertainment and educational programs. (Different from cable TV.) CATV can be viewed only within the area in which the CATV service is offered. VHF/UHF VHF indicates TV channels 2 to 13, and UHF indicates channels 14 through 69. Channel Fine Tuning This feature allows the viewer to fine-tune the TV channel to obtain the best viewing conditions. The Samsung LCD TV has both automatic and manual channel fine-tuning features to enable the viewer to adjust their desired settings. External Device Input External device input refers to video input from such external video devices as VCRs, camcorders and DVD players, separate from a TV broadcast. DVD A type of digital disk technology that takes up only the benefits of CD and LD, to implement a high resolution/quality, which enables the user to enjoy clearer images. DTV Broadcasting (Digital TV Broadcasting) An enhanced broadcasting technology to process digital video signals using a set-top box, which implements a high resolution and clearer digital images on the screen. LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) This derives from artificial satellite technology that amplifies weak signals even in poor reception areas for sharper images. Antenna Converter A connection part that is used to link a Wide antenna cable (feeder cable) to the TV. English Caption (= Caption Setting) A kind of language selection feature that provides English subtitles (caption) or character information services from broadcasting services (ex: AFKN) or video tapes (marked CC), and which are especially useful for studying English. Multiplex Broadcasting This enables the user to enjoy the broadcasting service in both Korean and foreign (original) language as well as in stereo mode. Appendix A2 This system uses two carriers to transmit voice data. Countries such as South Korea and Germany use this system. BTSC Broadcast Television System CommitteeThe stereo broadcasting system that is used in most of the countries that have adopted the NTSC system, including the United States, Canada, Chile, Venezuela and Taiwan. It also refers to the organization that has been organized to promote its development and management. EIAJ Electronic Industries Association of Japan. DVI DVI is the acronym for Digital Video Interface. It is a new type of video interface technology that provides the maximum screen quality for high quality display devices and high-end graphics cards including flat panel LCD monitors. HDMI(High Definition Multimedia Interface) This is an interface that connects both quality video signals and digital audio signals with a cable without any compression. • HD (High Definition) In HD, 1080-line, 2x density beaming (1080i) is used. HD provides a five times clearer screen quality than the existing analog method and has a wide 16:9 aspect ratio. • SD (Standard Definition) In SD, 480-line, double beaming (480i) is used. SD provides a screen quality somewhere between HD and the existing analog method. It exhibits a two times better screen quality than analog TV.
