Figures and illustrations in this User Manual are provided for reference only and may differ from actual product appearance.
Product design and specifications may be changed without notice.
Still image warning
Avoid displaying still images (like jpeg picture files) or still image element (like TV programme logo, panorama or 4:3 image format, stock or news bar at
screen bottom etc.) on the screen. Constant displaying of still picture can cause ghosting of LCD screen, which will affect image quality. To reduce risk of
this effect, please follow below recommendations:
• Avoid displaying the same TV channel for long periods.
• Always try to display any image on full screen, use TV set picture format menu for best possible match.
• Reduce brightness and contrast values to minimum required to achieve desired picture quality, exceeded values may speed up the burnout process.
• Frequently use all TV features designed to reduce image retention and screen burnout, 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.
✎✎ When using a stand or wall-mount, use parts provided by Samsung Electronics only.
xx If you use parts provided by another manufacturer, it may result in a problem with the product or an injury due to the product falling.
✎✎ The appearance may differ depending on the product.
✎✎ Be careful when you contact the TV because some parts can be somewhat hot.

children do not hang over or destabilize the TV; doing so may cause the TV to tip over, resulting in serious
injuries or death. Follow all safety precautions provided on the included Safety Flyer. For added stability, install
the anti-fall device for safety purposes, as follows.
To avoid the TV from falling
✎✎Since the necessary clamps, screws, and string are not supplied,
please purchase these additionally.

Issues
Solutions and Explanations
Picture Quality
The TV image does not look as good as it
did in the store.
• If you have an analogue cable/set top box, upgrade to a 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 programme.
✎✎ Many HD channels are upscaled from SD(Standard Definition) contents.
• Adjust the Cable/Set top 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: macroblock 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 or bad quality can cause picture distortion. This is not a TV issue.
• Mobile phones used close to the TV (cca up to 3.3ft) may cause noise in picture on analog and digital
TV.
Colour is wrong or missing.
• If you’re using a component connection, make sure the component cables are connected to the
correct jacks. Incorrect or loose connections may cause colour problems or a blank screen.
There is poor colour or brightness.
• Adjust the Picture options in the TV menu. (go to Picture mode / Colour / Brightness / Sharpness)

component input 1 on the TV.
When changing channels, the picture
freezes or is distorted or delayed.

Solutions and Explanations
Your settings are lost after 30 minutes or

the settings from Store Demo mode to Home Use mode in the Plug & Play (Initial setup) procedure.
Press the SOURCE button to select TV mode, and go to MENU → Setup → Plug & Play (Initial
setup) → ENTERE. (P. 6)
You have 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 mounting the TV to the wall, we recommend using cables with 90
degree connectors.
You see small particles when you look
closely at the edge of the frame of the TV.
• This is part of the product’s design and is not a defect.
There are recurrent picture/sound issues.
• Check and change the signal/source.
A reaction may occur between the rubber
cushion pads on the base stand and the
top finish of some furniture.
• To prevent this, use felt pads on any surface of the TV that comes in direct contact with furniture.
