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.
User Instructions
• Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as on a video game or when hooking up a PC to this PDP) on the plasma monitor panel for more than 2 hours
as it can cause screen image retention. This image retention is also known as “screen burn”. To avoid such image retention, reduce the degree of
brightness and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image.
• Heat on the top of the Plasma TV
The top side of the product may be hot after long period of use as heat dissipates from the panel through the vent hole in the upper part of the
product. This is normal and does not indicate any defect or operation failure of the product. However, children should be prevented from touching the
upper part of the product.
• The product is making a “cracking” noise.
A “cracking” noise may occur when the product contracts or expands due to a change in the surrounding environment such as temperature or
humidity. This is normal and not a defect of the unit.
• Cell Defects
The PDP uses a panel consisting of 2,360,000(HD-level) to 6,221,000(FHD-level) pixels which require sophisticated technology to produce. However,
there may be a few bright or dark pixels on the screen. These pixels will have no impact on the performance of the product.
• Avoid operating the TV at temperatures below 41°F (5°C)
• A still image displayed too long may cause permanent damage to the PDP Panel.
Watching the Plasma TV in 4:3 format for a long period of time may leave traces of borders displayed on the left, right and centre of
the screen caused by the difference of light emission on the screen. Playing a DVD or a game console may cause similar effects to
the screen.
Damages caused by the above effect are not covered by the Warranty.
• After-images on the Screen.
Displaying still images from Video games and PC for longer than a certain period of time may produce partial after-images.
To prevent this effect, reduce the “brightness” and “contrast” when displaying still images for a long time.
• Warranty
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention.
Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
Securing the Installation Space
Keep the required distance 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.

Securing the TV to the wall
Caution: Pulling, pushing, or climbing onto the TV may cause the TV to fall. In particular, ensure that your
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 in the included Safety Flyer. For added stability and
safety, install the anti-fall device as follows.
¦¦ To Avoid the TV from Falling
1. Put the screws into the clamps and firmly fasten them onto the wall.
Confirm that the screws have been firmly installed onto the wall.
✎✎ You may need additional material such as an anchor depending on
the type of wall.
✎✎ Since the necessary clamps, screws, and string are not supplied,
please purchase these additionally.
2. Remove the screws from the back centre of the TV, put the screws into
the clamps, and then fasten the screws onto the TV again.
✎✎ Screws may not be supplied with the product. In this case, please
purchase the screws of the following specifications.
3. Connect the clamps fixed onto the TV and the clamps fixed onto the wall
with a strong cable and then tie the string tightly.
✎✎ NOTE
xx Install the TV near to the wall so that it does not fall backwards.
xx It is safe to connect the string so that the clamps fixed on the
wall are equal to or lower than the clamps fixed on the TV.
xx Untie the string before moving the TV.

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 up scaled 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: 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 or bad quality can cause picture distortion. This is not a TV issue.
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)

at maximum volume.
• Please check the volume the of external device connected to your TV.
The picture is good but there is no sound.
• Set the Speaker Select option to TV speaker in the sound menu (p. 13).
• If you are using an external device, make sure the audio cables are connected to the correct audio
input jacks on the TV.
• If you are using an external device, check the device’s audio output option (ex. you may need to
change your cable box’s audio option to HDMI when you have a HDMI connected to your TV).
• If you are using a DVI to HDMI cable, a separate audio cable is required.
• Deactivate the SRS function if you are setting the volume to over 30.
• If your TV has a headphone jack, make sure there is nothing plugged into it.
The speakers are making an inappropriate
noise.

small block, dots, pixelization
• Compression of video contents may cause picture distortion, especially with fast moving pictures
such as sports and action movies.

PC Connection
A “Mode Not Supported” message
appears.
• Set your PC’s output resolution and frequency so they match the resolutions supported by the TV (p.
15).
“PC” is always shown on the source list,
even if a PC is not connected.
• This is normal; “PC” is always shown on the source list, regardless of whether a PC is connected.
The video is OK but there is no audio.

• Clean the sensor’s transmission window on the remote.
• Try pointing the remote directly at the TV from 5~6 feet away.
Plasma TV is making humming noise.
• Plasma TVs typically make a soft humming sound. This is normal. It’s caused by the electrical charges
that are used to create the images on the screen.
• If the humming sound is loud, you may have set the brightness on the TV too high. Try setting the
brightness lower.
• You can also have loud humming if the back of your Plasma TV is too close to a wall or other hard
surface. Also try rerouting your connection cables.
• Improper installation of wall mount can create excessive noise.
Image Retention (Burn In) Issue.
• To minimize the possibility of screen burn, this unit is equipped with screen burn reduction technology.
Pixel Shift technology enables you to set picture movement up/down (Vertical Line) and side to side
(Horizontal Dot).

You have intermittent loss of audio or
video.

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.
