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.

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

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).

Extra Sound Settings (Auto Volume, Turbo
Sound or Pseudo Stereo)
The following sound settings can be adjusted to suit your personal preferences
• Auto Volume
Each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, which can make it necessary
to adjust the volume every time the channel is changed. “Auto volume” lets you
automatically adjust the volume of the desired channel by lowering the sound out
put when the modulation signal is high or by raising the sound output when the
modulation signal is low.
• Turbo Sound
Turbo sound emphasizes the bass and treble frequencies to add fullness to the sound.
• Pseudo Stereo
“Pseudo Stereo” converts a monaural sound signal into two identical left and right
channels. Once the “Pseudo Stereo” is set to “On” or “Off”, the setting applies to the
sound effects such as “Standard”, “Music”, “Movie” and “Speech”.

At this point, one of the TV-Ratings is selected.
Press the ENTER button: Depending on your existing setup, a letter “U” or “B” will be selected.
(U= Unblocked, B= Blocked)
While the “U” or ”B” is red, press the ▲ or ▼ button to block or unblock the category.
Press the MENU button once to save the TV Parental Guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected, and no letters will be selected. To exit this screen, press the MENU button again. To select a different TV-Rating,

Note 1: The TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA have additional options. See the next step to change
any of the following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy violence
D: Dialog
L: Adult language
S: Sexual situation
V: Violence
Note 2: The V-Chip will automatically block certain categories that are “more restrictive.” For example, if
you block “TV-Y” category, then TV-Y7 will automatically be blocked. Similarly, if you block the TV-G category, then all the categories in the “young adult” group will be blocked (TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The
sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work together similarly. (See next section.)

Next, while the TV-Rating is selected , repeatedly press the ˆ button. This will cycle through the available
sub-ratings (FV,L, S, D or V).
A letter (“U” or “B”) will be displayed for each sub-rating. While the “U” or “B” is selected, press the ▲ or

Press the MENU button once to save the TV Parental Guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected, and no letters will be selected. To exit this screen, press the MENU button again. To select a different TV-Rating,
press the ▲ or ▼ button and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”. For example, if you
block “L” sub-rating in TV-PG, then the “L” sub-ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA will automatically be blocked.

Press the EXIT button to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up additional restrictions based on the MPAA codes).
How to Set up Restrictions using the MPAA Ratings: G, PG, PG13, R, NC-17, X
The MPAA rating system uses the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) system,
and its main application is for movies. (Eventually, movie videocassettes will be encoded
with MPAA ratings.) When the V-Chip lock is on, the TV will automatically block any
programs that are coded with objectionable ratings (either MPAA or TV-Ratings).

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
tape’s packaging:

Cleaning and Maintaining Your TV
With proper care, your TV unit will give you many years of service. Please follow these
guidelines to get the maximum performance from your TV.
Placement
• Do not place the TV near extremely hot, cold, humid or dusty places.
• Do not place the TV near appliances with electric motors that create magnetic fields,
such as vacuum cleaners.
• Keep the ventilation openings clear; do not place the TV on a soft surface, such as
cloth or paper.
• Place the TV in a vertical position only.
Liquids
• Do not handle liquids near or on the TV. Liquids that spill into it can cause serious
damage.
Cabinet
• Never open the cabinet or touch the parts inside.
• Wipe your TV with a clean, dry cloth. Never use water, cleaning fluids, wax, or
chemicals.
• Do not put heavy objects on top of the cabinet.
Temperature
• If your TV is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place, unplug the power cord,
and allow at least two hours for moisture that may have formed inside the unit to dry
completely.
Using Your TV in Another Country
If you plan to take your TV with you to a foreign country, please be aware of the different
television systems that are in use around the world. A TV designed for one system may
not work properly with another system due to differences in the TV channel frequencies.
