Información importante sobre la garantía
relativa al formato de visualización del televisor
Las pantallas PDP con formato de pantalla panorámica (16:9, la relación de aspecto ancho:alto de la
pantalla) están diseñadas principalmente para visualizar vídeos de movimiento de formato
panorámico. Las imágenes deben estar principalmente en el formato panorámico de relación 16:9, o
ampliadas para llenar la pantalla si el modelo tiene esta opción, y las imágenes están en movimiento
constante. La visualización de imágenes y gráficos estáticos en la pantalla, como las barras oscuras
laterales en programación y vídeos de televisión en formato estándar no ampliados, debe limitarse a
no más del 5% del tiempo total de visualización del televisor por semana.
Además, la visualización de otras imágenes estáticas y texto, como los informes de bolsa, pantallas de
videojuegos, logotipos de emisoras, sitios Web o gráficos y dibujos de ordenador, deberá limitarse en
todos los televisores como ya se ha descrito. La visualización de imágenes estáticas que
supere los límites de las instrucciones anteriores puede producir un envejecimiento
desigual de las pantallas PDP, lo que provocará una reproducción superpuesta sutil
pero permanente de la imagen de la PDP. Para evitarlo, varíe la programación y las
imágenes y, sobre todo, visualice imágenes en movimiento a toda pantalla, no
gráficos estáticos ni barras oscuras.
En modelos de PDP que ofrezcan opciones para el tamaño de la imagen, utilice estos controles para
ver los distintos formatos como imagen a toda pantalla.
Tenga cuidado en la selección y duración de los formatos de televisión utilizados para la visualización.
La garantía limitada de Samsung no cubre el envejecimiento desigual de la PDP como resultado de la
selección y uso de formatos, así como otras imágenes retenidas.

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, refer to page 47 of this manual to reduce the
degree of brightness and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image.
Altitude
The PDP will not operate normally at altitudes above 6500 ft.
Heat on the top of the PDP 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 of
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 1,230,000(SD-level) to 3,150,000(HD-level) pixels which
require sophisticated technology to produce. However, there may be 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 5°C(41°F)
A still image displayed too long may cause permanent damage to the PDP Panel.
Watching the PDP TV in 4:3 format for a long period of time may leave
traces of borders displayed on the left, right and center of the screen caused
by the difference of light emission on the screen.
Playing a DVD or a game console may cause similar effect to the screen.
Damages caused by the above effect are not covered by the Warranty.
Afterimage on the Screen.
Displaying still images from Video games and PC for longer than a certain period of time may
produce partial afterimages.
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.

Memorizing the Channels
Your TV can memorize and store all of the available channels for both “off-air” (antenna) and cable
channels. After the available channels are memorized, use the CH
and CH
buttons to scan
through the channels. This eliminates the need to change channels by entering the channel digits.
There are three steps for memorizing channels: selecting a broadcast source, memorizing the
channels (automatic) and adding and deleting channels (manual).
Selecting a broadcast source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels, you must specify the type of signal
source that is connected to the TV (i.e., an antenna or a cable system).

Using the Auto Volume
Each broadcasting station has its own signal conditions, which can make it necessary to adjust the
volume every time the channel is changed. “Auto Volume” lets you automatically adjust the volume
of the desired channel by lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or by
raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low.

Setting up Your TV (Plug and Play)
Our adoption of the new VESA Plug and Play solution eliminates complicated and time consuming
setup. It allows you to install your monitor in a Plug and Play compatible system, without the usual setup
hassles and confusion. Your PC system can easily identify and configure itself for use with your TV.
This TV automatically tells the PC system its Extended Display Identification data (EDID) using Display
Data Channel (DDC) protocols.

Viewing Closed Captions
Your TV decodes and displays the closed captions that are broadcast with certain TV shows. These
captions are usually subtitles for the hearing impaired or foreign language translations. All VCRs record
the closed caption signal from television programs, so home-recorded video tapes also provide closed
captions. Most prerecorded commercial video tapes provide closed captions as well. Check for the
closed caption symbol in your television schedule and on the tape’s packaging:
.
Note: The Caption feature does not work with DVD or DTV signals.

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-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work
together similarly. (See next section.)

How to set the FV, D, L, S and V sub-ratings.
First, select one of these TV-Ratings: TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14, or TV-MA (See Step 4,
on previous page), and press the √ button.
A letter “B” will be displayed for each sub-rating.
While “B” is selected, press the ENTER button to go to a sub rating.
Press ENTER to block the sub rating. To select a different TV-Rating, press the ▲ or ▼ button
and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”.
For example, if you block “L” sub-rating in TV-PG, then the “L” sub-ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA
will automatically be blocked.
7
Press the MENU button to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up
additional restrictions based on the MPAA codes.)
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
children as well as young adults, the TV guidelines must be set up separately for each age group.
(See next step.)

Note 1: The TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA have additional options.
See the next step to change any of the following sub-ratings:

L:
S:
V:
Fantasy violence
Sexually Suggestive Dialog
Adult Language
Sexual situation
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-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14, and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work
together similarly. (See next section.)
6
How to set the FV, D, L, S and V sub-ratings.
First, select one of these TV-Ratings: TV-Y, TV-Y7, TV-G, TV-PG, TV-14, or TV-MA (See Step 4,
on previous page), and press the √ button.
A letter “B” will be displayed for each sub-rating.
While “B” is selected, press the ENTER button to go to a sub rating.
Press ENTER to block the sub rating. To select a different TV-Rating, press the ▲ or ▼ button
and then repeat the process.
Note: The V-chip will automatically block certain categories that are “More restrictive”.
For example, if you block “L” sub-rating in TV-PG, then the “L” sub-ratings in TV-14 and TV-MA
will automatically be blocked.
7
Press the MENU button to clear all the screens. (Or proceed to the next section, and set up
additional restrictions based on the MPAA codes.)
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
children as well as young adults, the TV guidelines must be set up separately for each age group.
(See next step.)

The visual qualities of digital
channels vary.
The visual qualities of digital channels may vary
depending on the original production method (analog
or digital).
➔ Classification by the information displayed when
switching channels.
➔ If the original production method is digital: High
visual quality program.
➔ If the original production method is analog: The
digital program displayed on the screen is originally
an analog program which has been converted.
The visual quality is of an SD grade.
Although the TV caption shows HD,
the visual quality is not satisfactory.
The HD caption that appears when switching channels
or when pressing the Information button on the remote
control means the selected channel is simply a digital
channel. If the broadcasting station converts an
analog signal into digital and transmits the signal,
the visual quality may not be perfect.
