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 (LCDs) 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 LCD aging
as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your
Samsung limited warranty.
[Note]
If a still image is displayed for an extended period of time, residual images or blurring may appear.
When you need to leave the monitor unused for an extended period of time, adjust the settings so
that the monitor automatically goes into energy saving mode or activates the screen saver to display
moving images.

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas
If your antenna has a set of leads that
look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads”, below.
If your antenna has one lead that looks
like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads”, on page 8.
If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas”, on page 8.
Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads
If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.
1
Place the wires from
the twin leads under
the screws on a 30075 ohm adaptor (not
supplied). Use a

Separate VHF and UHF Antennas
If you have two separate antennas for your TV (one VHF and one UHF), you must

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 CH
buttons to scan through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by
entering the channel digits. There are three steps for memorizing channels: 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).
1
Press the MENU button
to display the menu.
Press the DOWN
button to select
“Channel”, then press
the ENTER
button.
2
Repeatedly press the
ENTER
button to
cycle through these
choices:
Air (antenna), STD,
HRC or IRC (all cable
TV).
Note : STD, HRC and IRC identify various types of cable
TV systems. Contact your local cable company to identify the
type of cable system that exists in your particular area.
At this point the signal source has been selected.
Proceed to “Storing Channels in Memory” (next page).
