For more information on how to use e-Manual (P. 9)
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) on the plasma display panel for more than several minutes 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 periods 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 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.
✎✎
• 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.

Network Connection
Network Connection - Wireless
You can connect your TV to your LAN through a standard wireless router or modem. To connect wirelessly, you must first attach a
“Samsung Wireless LAN Adapter” (WIS12ABGNX, WIS09ABGNX - sold separately) to the USB port on the side of your TV. See the
illustration below.
The LAN Port on the Wall
Wireless IP sharer
(wireless router having DHCP server)
USB port on the side of the TV
Samsung Wireless LAN Adapter
LAN Cable
Samsung’s Wireless LAN adapter is sold separately and is offered by select retailers and Ecommerce sites. Samsung’s Wireless LAN
adapter supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g and n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using IEEE 802.11n. When you play
video over a network connection, the video may not be played smoothly.
Most wireless network systems incorporate a security system that requires devices that access the network through an access point or
wireless router (typically a wireless IP Sharer) to transmit an encrypted security code called an access key.
If HIGH PURE THROUGHPUT (Greenfield) 802.11n mode is selected and the Encryption type is set to WEP for your wireless router,
Samsung TVs will not support a connection in compliance with new Wi-Fi certification specifications.

Troubleshooting
If the TV seems to have a problem, first try this list of possible problems and solutions. If none of these troubleshooting tips apply, visit
“www.samsung.com”, then click on Support, or call Samsung customer service centre.
Issues
Picture Quality
Solutions and Explanations
First of all, please perform the Picture Test and confirm that your TV is properly displaying test image.
(go to MENU - Support - Self Diagnosis - Picture Test) If the test image is properly displayed, the
poor picture may caused by the source or signal.
• 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.
The TV image does not look as • Aerial connection: Try HD stations after performing Auto tuning.
good as it did in the store.
• 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:
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 1m) may cause noise in picture on analogue 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)
• Adjust Energy Saving option in the TV menu. (go to MENU - System - Eco Solution - Energy
Saving)
• Try resetting the picture to view the default picture settings. (go to MENU - Picture - Reset
Picture)
There is a dotted line on the
edge of the screen.
• If the picture size is set to Screen Fit, change it to 16:9.
• Change cable/satellite box resolution.
The picture is black and white.
• If you are using an AV composite input, connect the video cable (yellow) to the Green jack of
component input 1 on the TV.
When changing channels, the
picture freezes or is distorted
or delayed.
• If connected with a cable box, please try to reset the cable box. Reconnect the AC cord and wait
until the cable box reboots. It may take up to 20 minutes.
• Set the output resolution of the cable box to 1080i or 720p.
Sound Quality
First of all, please perform the Sound Test to confirm that your TV audio is properly operating. (go to
MENU - Support - Self Diagnosis - Sound Test)
If the audio is ok, the sound problem may be caused by the source or signal.
There is no sound or the sound
• Please check the volume of the device (Cable/Sat Box, DVD, Blu-ray etc) connected to your TV.
is too low at maximum volume.
The picture is good but there is
no sound.
• Set the Speaker Select option to TV Speaker in the sound menu.
• 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

When watching TV from an aerial or cable connection, the TV will turn off after 10 ~ 15 minutes if
there is no signal.
You can not play 3D videos in
some of the BD players.
• Take out the disk from player and put it again, or restart the BD player.
There is no picture/video.
• Check cable connections (remove and reconnect all cables connected to the TV and external
devices).
• Set your external device’s (Cable/Set top Box, DVD, Blu-ray etc) video outputs to match the
connections to the TV input. For example, if an external device’s output is HDMI, it should be
connected to an HDMI input on the TV.
• Make sure your connected devices are powered on.
• Be sure to select the TV’s correct source by pressing the SOURCE button on the remote control.
• Reboot the connected device by reconnecting the device’s power cable.
Aerial (Air/Cable) Connection
The TV is not receiving all
channels.
• Make sure the Aerial cable is connected securely.
• Please try Setup (Initial setup) to add available channels to the channel list. Go to MENU - System
- Setup (Initial setup) and wait for all available channels to be stored.
• Verify the Aerial is positioned correctly.
The picture is distorted: macro
block error small block, dots,
pixelization
• Compression of video contents may cause picture distortion, especially on fast moving pictures
such as sports and action movies.
• A low signal can cause picture distortion. This is not a TV issue.
Others
The picture will not display in
full screen.
• HD channels will have black bars on either side of the screen when displaying up scaled SD (4:3)
contents.
• Black bars on the top and bottom will appear during movies that have aspect ratios different from
your TV.
• Adjust the picture size options on your external device or TV to full screen.
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 Pixel Shift screen burn
reduction technology. Pixel Shift lets you set the picture so it moves slightly up and down (Vertical
Line) and side to side (Horizontal Dot). The regular, slight movement of the picture reduces screen
burn in.
The remote control does not
work.
• Replace the remote control batteries with the poles (+/–) in the right direction.
• Clean the sensor’s transmission window on the remote.
• Try pointing the remote directly at the TV from 5~6 feet away.
The cable/set top box remote
control doesn’t turn the TV on
or off, or adjust the volume.
• Programme the Cable/Set top box remote control to operate the TV. Refer to the Cable/Set top
box user manual for the SAMSUNG TV code.
