Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format
Viewing
Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily
designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them should primarily
be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and constantly moving.
Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom letterbox bars
(wide screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per week.
Wide screen format televisions (16:9, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily
designed to view wide screen format full-motion video. The images displayed on them should primarily
be in the wide screen 16:9 ratio format, or expanded to fill the screen if your model offers this feature,
and constantly moving. Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark
side-bars on non-expanded standard format television video and programming, should be limited to
no more than 15% of the total television viewing per week.
Additionally, viewing other stationary images and text such as stock market reports, video game
displays, station logos, web sites or computer graphics and patterns, should be limited as described
above for all televisions. Displaying any stationary images that exceed the above guidelines can
cause uneven aging of picture tubes (LCDs) that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images
in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily display full
screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars. On television models that offer picture
sizing features, use these controls to view the different formats as a full screen picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven LCD aging
as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your
Samsung limited warranty.
[Note]
If a still image is displayed for an extended period of time, residual images or blurring may appear.
When you need to leave the monitor unused for an extended period of time, adjust the settings so
that the monitor automatically goes into energy saving mode or activates the screen saver to display
moving images.

Slide the cover out
completely.
Make sure to match the “+” and
2
“–” ends of the batteries with the
diagram inside the compartment.
Install two AAA size
batteries.
Remove the batteries and store them
in a cool, dry place if you won’t be
using the remote control for a long
time.
3
Replace the cover.
The remote control can be used

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas
If your antenna has a set of leads that
look like this, see “Antennas with
300-ohm Flat Twin Leads” below.
If your antenna has one lead that looks
like this, see “Antennas with 75-ohm
Round Leads” on page 8.
If you have two antennas, see “Separate
VHF and UHF Antennas” on page 8.
Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads
If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has
300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.
1
Place the wires from
the twin leads under
the screws on a 30075 ohm adaptor (not
supplied). Use a
screwdriver to tighten
the screws.
2
Plug the adaptor into
the TV ANTENNA
terminal on the
bottom of the back

Plug the antenna
lead into the TV
ANTENNA terminal
on the bottom of the
back panel.
Separate VHF and UHF Antennas
If you have two separate antennas for your TV (one VHF and one UHF), you must
combine the two antenna signals before connecting the antennas to the TV. This
procedure requires a an optional combiner-adaptor (available at most electronics shops).
1
Connect both antenna
leads to the combiner.
2
Plug the combiner
into the TV
ANTENNA terminal
on the bottom of
the rear panel.
Connecting Cable TV
To connect to a cable TV system, follow the instructions below.

terminal on your cable
box.
2
Connect the other end
of this cable to the TV
ANTENNA terminal on
the back of the TV.
Connecting to a Cable Box that Descrambles Some Channels
If your cable box descrambles only some channels (such as premium channels), follow the
instructions below. You will need a two-way splitter, an RF (A/B) switch, and four lengths
of coaxial cable. (These items are available at most electronics stores.)
This terminal might be labeled
“ANT IN”, “VHF IN”, or simply,
“IN”.
1
Find and disconnect
the cable that is
connected to the
ANTENNA IN terminal
on your cable box.
2
Connect this cable
to a two-way splitter.
3
