Thank You for Choosing Samsung

Thank you for choosing Samsung! Your new Samsung TV represents the latest in television technology. We designed it with easy-to-use on-screen menus and closed captioning capabilities, making it one of the best products in its class. We are proud to offer you a product that will provide convenient, dependable service and enjoyment for years to come.

Important Safety Information

Always be careful when using your TV receiver. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and other injuries, keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and maintaining your machine.

• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your TV.

• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.

• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.

• Follow all operating and use instructions.

• Unplug the TV receiver from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use liquid or aerosol cleaners.

• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such additions can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.

• Do not use the TV receiver where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as near bath tubs, sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.

• Do not place the TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table where it can fall. A falling TV can cause serious injury to a child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the TV. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV and cart with care.

Quick stops, excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the unit and cart unsteady and likely to overturn.

• Provide ventilation for the TV receiver. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for ventilation to protect it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object, and do not place the TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.

• Operate your TV receiver only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label.

If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power company.

• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this TV is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.

• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on or pinched by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.

• Unplug the TV from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to lightning and power-line surges.

• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep from touching the power lines or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.

• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.

• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage points or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the TV.

• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the TV, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,

ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

• Do not attempt to service the TV yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

- when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged

- if liquid has been spilled on the unit or if objects have fallen into the unit

- if the TV has been exposed to rain or water

- if the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions

- if the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged

- when the TV exhibits a distinct change in performance

• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. Adjusting other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the TV to normal.

• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part.

Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the unit.

• Upon completion of any service or repairs to this TV, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the TV is in a safe operating condition.

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

(1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and

(2) This device must accept any interference that may cause undesired operation.

This television receiver provides display of television closed captioning in accordance with

§15.119 of the FCC rules.

Customizing Your Remote Control

Your TV comes equipped with a “universal” remote control. In addition to controlling the TV, the universal remote can also operate a VCR, DVD and a cable box

(even if your VCR and cable box are made by manufacturers other than Samsung).

Note: The remote control might not be compatible with DVD Player, VCR, Cable box and others manufactured by another company.

Setting Up Your Remote Control to Operate Your VCR (or DVD)

1

Turn off your VCR (or

DVD.)

2

Press the MODE button and make sure that the VCR (or DVD)

LED is illuminated.

The remote control has four

“modes”: “TV,” “VCR”, “Cable” and

“DVD.” Press the “MODE” button to switch the remote control to the

“VCR” (or DVD) mode.

3

On your Samsung remote control, press Set.

4

Enter 3 digits of the VCR (or DVD) code listed on the next page for your brand of VCR (or DVD).

5

Press the Power button on the remote control. Your VCR

(or DVD) should turn on. If your VCR (or DVD) turns on, your remote control is now set correctly.

6

Once your remote control is set up, press the MODE button any time you want to use the remote to operate your VCR (or

DVD).

Make sure you enter 3 digits of the code, even if the first digit is a “0.”

If more than one code listed, try the first one.

If your VCR (or DVD) does not turn on, repeat steps 2, 3, and 4, but try one of the other codes listed for the brand of your particular VCR (or

DVD).

If no other codes are listed, try each code, 000 through 089.

When your remote control is in the “VCR” (or DVD) mode, the volume buttons still control your TV’s volume.

When your remote is in the “TV” mode, the VCR control buttons (PLAY,

PAUSE, etc.) will still operate your

VCR.

Special Sound Options:

Dolby Surround, MTS, Auto Volume, and

Headphone

Depending on the particular type of audio that is being broadcast, you can listen to any of three modes: Mono, Stereo and SAP (Secondary Audio Programming, which is typically a foreign-language translation).

The Dolby Surround Pro Logic option allows you to enjoy programs in surround sound.

The headphone option is especially useful when simultaneously watching the main screen and the PIP window.

Dolby Pro Logic

Dolby Pro Logic will provide you with full surround sound from Dolby Surround encoded program sources. For best results, look for programs and movies that are marked with the following logo:

1

Press the Menu button to display the menu. Press the CH ▼ button to highlight “SOUND” and press the VOL+ button.

2

Press the CH

▼ button twice to select “Dolby Surround” and

Press the VOL+ button.

Select the mode: Press the press VOL+ button repeatedly until the appropriate mode appears

(“Wide,” “Phantom,” or “Normal”). Some recommended settings:

Phantom : Selected when the center speaker is either not present or not used.

In Phantom Mode, the center sound is output through both left and right speakers.

Normal : Selected when the center speaker is smaller than the left and right speakers and can not reproduce bass sounds effectively. In Normal Mode, the bass frequencies of the center channel are reproduced by the left and right speakers.

Wide : Selected when the center speaker can accurately reproduce bass frequencies. In wide

Mode, all center channel sounds are reproduced by the center speaker.

After selecting the mode, press the CH ▼ button, and highlight “Center.” Next, press the VOL+ or

VOL- buttons and, depending on personal preference, select any value between -12 and +12.

Follow a similar procedure for “Rear” and “Time delay.” (Some trial-and-error experimenting is necessary to find the optimal setting, which will vary according to individual preference).

After entering values for “Center,” “Rear,” and “Time delay,” use the CH ▼ and VOL+ buttons to activate “Test tone.” During “Test tone,” a tone will cycle through the speakers so you can hear the surround effect and make additional changes as needed.

Press the Menu three times to exit.

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: .

Mature audience

Note: These categories consist of two separate groups: TV-Y and TV-Y7

(young children through age 7), and

TV-G through TV-MA (everybody else).

The restrictions for these two groups work independently: If a household includes very young children as well as young adults, the TV guidelines must be set up separately for each age group. (See next step.)

D: Dialog

L: L

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.)
