Important Warranty Information Regarding Television Format Viewing
✎✎ See the warranty card for more information on warranty terms.
Wide screen format LED Displays (with 16:9 aspect ratios, the ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily designed to view wide screen format fullmotion 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, with the images constantly in motion. Displaying stationary graphics and images on the screen, such as the dark sidebars on non-expanded
standard format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 5% of the total television viewing per week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market crawls, video game displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics
and patterns, should be limited as described above for all televisions. Displaying stationary images for more than 5% of total viewing time can cause
uneven aging of your LED display and leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the LED picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and
images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars. On LED models that offer picture sizing features, use these
controls to view different formats as a full screen picture. Be careful in the selection of television formats you use for viewing and the amount of time you
view them. Uneven LED aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as burned in images, are not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.
Still image warning
Avoid displaying still images (such as jpeg picture files), still image elements (such as TV channel logos, stock or news bars at the screen bottom etc.),
or programs in panorama or 4:3 image format on the screen. Constantly displaying still pictures can cause image burn-in on the screen, which will affect
image quality. To reduce risk of this effect, please follow the recommendations below:
• Avoid displaying the same TV channel for long periods.
• Always try to display a full screen image.
• Reduce brightness and contrast to avoid the appearance of after-images.
• Use all TV features designed to reduce image retention and screen burn. Refer to proper user manual section for details.
Securing the Installation Space
Keep the required distances between the product and other objects (e.g. walls) to ensure proper ventilation.
Failing to do so may result in fire or a problem with the product due to an increase in the internal temperature of the product.
Installation with a stand.

Troubleshooting
If the TV seems to have a problem, first review this list of possible problems and solution. If none of the troubleshooting tips
apply, visit www.samsung.com/support or call Samsung customer Service at 1-800-SAMSUNG(1-800-726-7864).
Issues
Solutions and Explanations
PC Connection
A Mode Not Supported message
appears.
The video is OK but there is no audio.
Poor picture
• Set your PC’s output resolution so it matches the resolutions supported by the TV (p. 17).
• If you are using an HDMI connection, check the audio output setting on your PC.
First of all, please perform the Picture Test and confirm that your TV is properly displaying the test image.
(go to MENU - Support - Self Diagnosis - Picture Test) (p. 30)
If the test image is properly displayed, the poor picture may be caused by the source or signal.
The TV image does not look as good as it
did in the store.
• If you have an analog cable/satellite box, upgrade to an HD digital set top box. Use HDMI or
Component cables to deliver HD (high definition) picture quality.
• Cable/Satellite subscribers: Try HD stations from the channel line up.
• Antenna connection: Try HD stations after performing Auto program.
✎✎ Many HD channels are up scaled from SD(Standard Definition) contents.
• Adjust the Cable/Sat box video output resolution to 1080i or 720p.
• Make sure you are watching the TV at the minimum recommended distance based on the size and
definition of the signal.
The picture is distorted: macro block error,
small block, dots, pixelization.
• Compression of video contents may cause picture distortion, especially in fast moving pictures such
as sports and action movies.
• Low signal level can cause picture distortion. This is not a TV problem.
• Mobile phones used close to the TV (cca up to 1m) may cause noise in picture on analog and digital
TV.
Color is wrong or missing.
• If you’re using Component connection, make sure the component cables are connected to the
correct jacks. Incorrect or loose connections may cause color problems or a blank screen.
There is poor color or brightness.
• Adjust the Picture options in the TV menu. (go to Picture mode / Color / Brightness / Sharpness)
(p. 22)
• Adjust Energy Saving option in the TV menu. (go to MENU – Setup – Energy Saving) (p. 29)
• Try resetting the picture to view the default picture settings. (go to MENU - Picture - Reset Picture)
