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.

TV-MA 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

See the next step to change any of the following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy Violence
D: Sexual suggestive 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.

Using Your TV as a Computer (PC) Display
How to Set up Your PC Software (Windows only)
The Windows display-settings for a typical computer are shown below. However, the
actual screens on your PC will probably look different, depending upon your particular
version of Windows and your particular video card. Even if your actual screens look
different, the same, basic set-up information will apply in most cases.
(If not, contact your computer manufacturer or Samsung Dealer.)
First, click on “Settings” on the
Windows start menu.
While “Settings” is highlighted,
move the cursor so that “Control
Panel” is highlighted.
When the control panel screen
appears, click on “Display” and a
display dialog-box will appear.
Navigate to the “settings” tab on the
display dialog-box.
The two key variables that apply
the TV-PC interface are “resolution”
and “colors.” The correct settings
for these two variables are:
* Size (sometimes called
“resolution”): 1280 x 720 pixels
If a vertical-frequency option exists
on your display settings dialog box,
the correct value is “60” or “60 Hz”.
Otherwise, just click “OK” and exit
the dialog box.
* See “Display Mode” on page A.1.
