Wireless Network Precautions
PDP 5500, LED 5500 series and above
●● This TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g /n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. Otherwise when you play video over a network connection, the video may not play
smoothly.
●● To use a wireless network, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the
wireless router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the
wireless network.
●● Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the
wireless router is currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or
a communications failure.
●● Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security
system, you need to create a security key using characters and numbers. This security key is then
needed to connect to the wireless network.

If the wireless router has been set to Pure High-throughput (Greenfield) 802.11n mode and the
Encryption Type to WEP or TKIP, Samsung TVs will not support the connection in compliance with the
new Wi-Fi certification specifications.
If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), it is possible to connect to the network
using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically
configures the SSID and WPA key settings.

Dynamic versus Static IP Addresses
If the network requires a dynamic IP address, use an ADSL modem or router that supports the
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP automatically
provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS values the TV needs to access the Internet, so
they do not have to be entered manually. Most home networks use a dynamic IP address.
If the network requires a static IP address, enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS values
manually when setting up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and
DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If the network requires a static IP address, use an ADSL modem that supports DHCP. ADSL modems
that support DHCP also allow static IP addresses.

SMART Interaction
This TV features SMART Interaction, which recognizes a user's voice, actions, and face to enable TV
operations without the use of a remote control. The motion control and facial recognition features
require a separately-sold camera installed on the TV. Make sure that the TV is connected to the
Internet when installing the camera so that it can download the software required for motion control.
SMART Interaction makes it possible to configure settings and access features with ease. It takes
approximately 15 seconds for voice and motion recognition to come online after turning on the TV.
[[ When connecting the TV camera to 2013 Samsung TV models, make sure to connect it to the
specified USB port of the TV. Other USB ports are not supported for this purpose.
Precautions
Face Recognition
This product saves thumbnail images of users' faces for use during the Face Login. Logging into the
Smart Hub via face recognition may be less secure than logging in using an ID and password.
TV Camera Use
Under some circumstances and under certain legal conditions, the use/misuse of the TV camera may
result in legal liability. There may be obligations under local privacy laws regarding the protection of
individuals concerning personal data and on the free movement of such data, and possibly other laws
including criminal laws, regulating camera surveillance both in the workplace and elsewhere.
By using the TV camera, users agree that it will not be used (i) in locations where cameras are
generally prohibited (such as bathrooms, locker rooms or changing rooms), (ii) in any manner that will
result in an invasion of a person’s privacy or (iii) in violation of any applicable laws, regulations or
statutes.
If you are using a camera, first check the back for a sticker.
Remove the sticker cover before adjusting the TV camera angle.
When you are no longer using the camera, rotate the lens downward and secure it in place. This
prevents any inadvertent or unintentional camera operation.
Motion Control
Motion Control works by using the camera, so the user must be within the camera's recognition range.
The camera's recognition range varies depending on the ambient light level and other factors. Run
Motion Control Environment Test before using Motion Control to determine the camera's recognition
range. User may experience physical fatigue when using Motion Control for extended periods.
Voice Recognition
Voice Recognition is not available in all languages, dialects or regions. The performance varies
depending on the language chosen, voice volume and ambient noise levels in the surrounding area.
Voice Text Input requires the user's agreement with any third-party app’s voice privacy policy and to
provide Samsung with the user's MAC address and other private information.
Voice Text Input lets users enter text using voice commands instead of a mouse, keyboard or remote
control. This feature is particularly useful for searching, browsing the web, and using applications that
require text input.
You must agree to the Supplemental Privacy Notices before using Interactive Voice Recognition.

Face Recognition
Users can register their faces and log into their Smart Hub accounts through Face Recognition. One
face may be registered per account. Depending on the ambient brightness level and the user's skin
tone, the TV may have difficulty recognizing the user's face.
The Face Recognition features require a separately-sold camera installed on the TV. Make sure that
the TV is connected to the Internet when installing the camera so that it can download the software
required for Face Recognition.
[[ When connecting the TV camera to 2013 Samsung TV models, make sure to connect it to the

If the TV appears to have a problem, first review this list of possible problems and solutions. If none of
the troubleshooting tips apply, visit www.samsung.com/support or contact Samsung Customer Service.
Screen
If there is a problem with the screen, run Picture Test (Support > Self Diagnosis > Picture Test) to
diagnose the issue. If the test fails to identify a problem, there may be a problem with an external
device or the signal strength.
There is something
wrong with the TV.
Try this!
Flickering and Dimming
If your Samsung Television is flickering or dimming sporadically, you may need
to disable some of the energy efficiency features. Disable Energy Saving (System
> Eco Solution > Eco Sensor) and/or Energy Saving (System > Eco Solution >
Energy Saving) and check again.
Component
Connections/Screen
Color
If you find that the color on your Samsung television screen is not correct or the
black and white colors are off, run Self Diagnosis (Support > Self Diagnosis >
Picture Test).
If the test results are negative, check the following:
Are the TV's video input connectors connected to the correct external device video
output connectors?
Check other connections as well. If the TV is connected to an external device via a
component cable, check that the Pb, Pr, and Y jacks are plugged into their proper
connectors.
Screen Brightness
If you find that the colors on your Samsung TV are correct but just a little too dark
or bright, try adjusting the following settings first.
Navigate to Picture and adjust Backlight/Cell Light (applicable models), Contrast,
Brightness, Sharpness, Color, Tint (G/R) and other picture quality adjustment
settings.
Auto Motion Plus/Blur
If you find that there is a blur or “ghost” shadow to the images on your television
screen, you might be able to correct the issue using Auto Motion Plus (Picture >
Picture Options > Auto Motion Plus).
Unwanted Powering
Off
If your Samsung TV appears to turn off by itself, try disabling some of the TV's
energy efficiency features. Check if Sleep Timer (System > Time > Sleep Timer)
has been enabled. Sleep Timer automatically turns off the TV to save energy after
a specified period of inactivity. If the Sleep Timer has not been enabled, see if No
Signal Power Off (System > Eco Solution > No Signal Power Off) or Auto Power
Off (System > Eco Solution > Auto Power Off) has been enabled.
Problems Powering On
When the TV is turned on, the remote control receiver flashes 5 times before the
screen turns on.
If you find that you are having problems powering on your Samsung television,
there are a number of things to check before calling the service department. If the
power cord is connected properly and the remote control is operating normally, the
problem might be with the antenna cable connection or the cable/satellite box not
being turned on. Check the antenna connection or turn on the cable/satellite box.
There is something
wrong with the TV.
Try this!
Unable to find a
Channel
Run Setup (System > Setup) or Auto Program (Broadcasting > Auto Program).
The TV image does not
look as good as it did
in the store.
Store displays are all tuned to digital, HD (high definition) channels.
If you have an analog cable/set top box, upgrade to a digital set top box. Use
HDMI or Component cables to deliver HD (high definition) picture quality.
Many HD channels are upscaled from SD (Standard Definition) content. Look for a
channel that is broadcasting true HD content.
Cable/Satellite Subscribers: Try HD channels from the channel lineup.
Air/Cable Antenna Connection: Try HD channels after performing the Auto
Program operation.
Adjust the cable/satellite box's video output resolution to 1080i or 720p.
The picture is distorted.
The compression of video content may cause picture distortions, especially in fast
moving pictures such as sports and action movies.
A weak or bad quality signal can cause picture distortions. This is not an issue
with the TV.
Mobile phones used close to the TV (within 1m) may cause noise in analog and
digital channels.
The color is wrong or
missing.
If you’re using a Component connection, make sure that the component cables are
connected to the correct jacks. Incorrect or loose connections may cause color
problems or a blank screen.
The color is poor or
the picture is not bright
enough.
Navigate to Picture and adjust Picture Mode, Brightness, Sharpness, Color, and
other picture adjustment settings.
See if Energy Saving (System > Eco Solution > Energy Saving) has been enabled.
Try resetting the picture. (Picture > Reset Picture)
There is a dotted line
on the edge of the
screen.
If Picture Size is set to Screen Fit, change it to 16:9.
Change the cable/satellite box resolution.
The picture is black
and white.
If you are using AV composite input, connect the video cable (yellow) to the TV's
green component jack.
The color is wrong or
missing.
If you are using a Component connection, make sure that the component cables
are connected to the correct jacks. Incorrect or loose connections may cause
color problems or a blank screen.
Sound
If you find that there is a problem with the TV's speakers, run Sound Test (Support > Self Diagnosis >
Sound Test) to diagnose the issue. If the audio is OK, the sound problem may be caused by the source
or signal.
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
There is no sound or
the sound is too low at
maximum volume.
Please check the volume of the device (cable/satellite box, DVD, Blu-ray, etc.)
connected to your TV.
The picture is good but
there is no sound.
Navigate to Sound and set Speaker Select to TV Speaker.
If you are using an external device, check the device’s audio output option. (For
example, you may need to change your cable box’s audio option to HDMI if the
box connected to your TV is using an HDMI cable.)
If you are using a DVI to HDMI cable, a separate audio cable is required.
If your TV has a headphone jack, make sure there is nothing plugged into it.
Reboot the connected device by disconnecting and then reconnecting the device’
s power cable.
The speakers are making
an odd sound.
Make sure that the audio cable is connected to the correct audio output
connector on the external device.
For antenna or cable connections, check the signal information. A low signal
level may cause sound distortions.
Run Self Diagnosis (Support > Self Diagnosis > Sound Test).
3D TV
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The 3D Active Glasses
are not working correctly.
Make sure the glasses are turned on.
The 3D Active Glasses may not work properly if there is another 3D product or
electronic device turned on near the glasses or TV.
If there is a problem, keep other electronic devices as far away as possible from
the 3D Active Glasses.
The 3D images don’t
look quite right.
The ideal viewing distance is three times or more the height of the screen.
We also recommend sitting with your eyes level with the screen.
The batteries in the 3D
glasses don’t last.
Turn off the 3D glasses when you are not using them. If you leave the 3D glasses
on, the battery lifespan is shortened.

There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The TV is not receiving
all channels.
Make sure the coaxial cable is connected securely.
Run Auto Program (Broadcasting > Auto Program) to add all available channels
to the channel list.
Verify that the antenna is positioned correctly.
There are no captions on
digital channels.
Navigate to Caption (Broadcasting > Caption) and change the Caption Mode
setting.
Some channels may not have caption data.
The picture is distorted.
The compression of video content may cause picture distortions. This is
especially true with fast moving pictures such as sports and action movies.
A weak signal can cause picture distortions. This is not a problem with the TV.
PC Connection
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The "Mode Not
Supported" message
appears.
Set your PC’s output resolution so it matches a resolution supported by the TV.
The video is OK but
there is no audio.
If you are using an HDMI connection, check the audio output setting on your PC.
If you are using a DVI to HDMI cable, a separate audio cable is required.
Networking
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The wireless network
connection failed.
Make sure the TV is connected to a wireless IP router.
The Software Update
over the network has
failed.
Check the network connection status.
If the TV is not connected to a network, connect to a network.
The upgrade will not proceed if you already have the latest software version.
Miscellaneous
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The TV is hot.
Watching TV for an extended period of time causes the panel to generate heat.
The heat from the panel is dissipated through internal vents running along the
top part of the TV. The bottom portion, however, may feel hot to the touch after
extended use. Children watching TV need constant adult supervision to prevent
them from touching the TV. This heat, however, is not a defect and does not
affect the TV's functionality.
The picture won’t
display in full screen.
HD channels will have black bars on either side of the screen when displaying
upscaled SD (4:3) content.
Black bars will appear at the top and bottom of the screen when you watch
movies that have aspect ratios different from your TV.
Adjust the picture size options on your external device or set the TV to full
screen.
The "Mode Not
Supported" message
appears.
Check the supported resolutions of the TV and adjust the external device’s
output resolution accordingly.
The Captions item in the
TV menu is grayed out.
You cannot select the Caption menu if you have selected a source connected
to the TV via HDMI or Component. The external device’s caption function must
also be activated.
The TV smells of plastic.
This smell is normal and will dissipate over time.
The TV's Signal
Information option is
not activated in the Self
Diagnosis.
Verify that the current channel is a digital channel.
Signal Information is only available with digital channels.
The TV is tilted to the
side.
Remove the base stand from the TV and reassemble it.
Broadcasting is grayed
out.
The Broadcasting menu is only available when Source is set to TV.
The Broadcasting menu cannot be accessed while watching TV using a cable
box or satellite receiver.
There is something wrong
with the TV.
Try this!
The settings are lost
after 30 minutes or every
time the TV is turned off.
If Use Mode is set to Store Demo, the TV's audio and video settings are
automatically reset every 30 minutes.
Change Use Mode (Support > Use Mode) to Home Use.
There is an intermittent
loss of audio or video.
Check the cable connections and reconnect them.
Loss of audio or video can be caused by using overly rigid or thick cables.
Make sure the cables are flexible enough for long term use. If you are mounting
the TV to a wall, we recommend using cables with 90-degree connectors.
There are small particles
on the TV's bezel.
This is part of the product’s design and is not a defect.
The PIP menu is not
available.
PIP functionality is only available when you are using an HDMI or Component
source.
A POP (TV’s internal
banner ad) appears on
the screen.
Change Use Mode (Support > Use Mode) to Home Use.
The TV is making a
popping noise.
The expansion and contraction of the TV's outer casing may cause a popping
noise. This does not indicate a product malfunction. The TV is safe to use.
The TV is making a
humming noise.
Your TV utilizes high-speed switching circuits and high levels of electrical
current, and depending on the brightness level being used may seem slightly
noisier than a conventional TV.
Your TV has undergone strict quality control procedures that meet our
demanding performance and reliability requirements.
Some noise coming from the TV is considered normal and is not an acceptable
cause for an exchange or refund.
Image Retention (Burn
In) Issue
This issue affects PDP TVs only. Watching TV for an extended period of time or
using the 4:3 screen ratio only may result in burn-ins.
PDP TVs are equipped with Pixel Shift screen burn reduction technology. Pixel
Shift technology reduces screen burn-ins in PDP TVs.
It does this by moving the picture slightly vertically or horizontally.
Use Screen Burn Protection (System > Screen Burn Protection) to prevent
screen burn-ins.
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)
There is something
wrong with the TV.
