Important Safety Information
Always be careful when using your PDP. To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and other injuries,
keep these safety precautions in mind when installing, using, and
maintaining your machine.
• Read all safety and operating instructions before operating your PDP.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the PDP and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the PDP from the wall outlet before cleaning. Use a damp cloth; do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners.
• Never add any attachments and/or equipment without approval of the manufacturer. Such additions
can increase the risk of fire, electric shock, or other personal injury.
• Do not use the PDP where contact with or immersion in water is a possibility, such as near bath tubs,
sinks, washing machines, swimming pools, etc.
• Do not place the PDP on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket,
table, or floor where it can fall. A falling PDP can cause serious injury
to a child or adult, and serious damage to the appliance. Use only
with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold with the PDP. Follow the manufacturer's instructions
when mounting the unit, and use a mounting accessory recommended
by the manufacturer. Move the PDP and cart with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces can make the unit and cart
unsteady and likely to overturn.
• Provide ventilation for the PDP. The unit is designed with slots in the cabinet for ventilation to protect
it from overheating. Do not block these openings with any object, and do not place the PDP on a
bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. Do not place it near a radiator or heat register. If you place
the PDP on a rack or bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you've followed the
manufacturer's instructions for mounting.
• Operate your PDP only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are
not sure of the type of power supplied to your home, consult your appliance dealer or local power
company.
• Use only a grounded or polarized outlet. For your safety, this PDP is equipped with a polarized
alternating current line plug having one blade wider than the other. This plug will fit into the power
outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug.
If the plug still does not fit, contact your electrician to replace your outlet.

• Protect the power cord. Power supply cords should be routed so that they won’t be walked on or pinched
by objects placed on or against them. Pay particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the unit.
• Unplug the PDP from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system during a lightning storm
or when left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This will prevent damage to the unit due to
lightning and power-line surges.
• Avoid overhead power lines. An outside antenna system should not be placed in the vicinity of overhead
power lines or other electric light or power circuits or where it can fall into such power lines or circuits.
When installing an outside antenna system, be extremely careful to keep from touching the power lines
or circuits. Contact with such lines can be fatal.
• Do not overload the wall outlet or extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
• Do not insert anything through the openings in the unit, where they can touch dangerous voltage points
or damage parts. Never spill liquid of any kind on the PDP.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the PDP, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and builtup static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.70-1984, provides information about proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an
antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to
grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.
• Do not attempt to service the PDP yourself. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Unplug the
unit from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
- when the power-supply cord or plug is damaged
- if liquid has been spilled on the unit or if objects have fallen into the unit
- if the PDP has been exposed to rain or water
- if the PDP does not operate normally by following the operating instructions
- if the PDP has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged
- when the PDP exhibits a distinct change in performance
• If you make adjustments yourself, adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions. Adjusting other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified
technician to restore the PDP to normal.
• When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by
the manufacturer or those that have the same characteristics as the original part. Unauthorized substitutions may result in additional damage to the unit.
• Upon completion of any service or repairs to this PDP, ask the service technician to perform safety checks
to determine that the PDP is in a safe operating condition.
• The PDP can properly operate in a temperature range of 32~104°F(0~40°C) and 80% humidity.
Do not use in a hot and humid place.
• Before moving the PDP equipped with speakers, separate the speakers from the PDP. If you move the PDP
with the speakers attached, it may result in damage or injury.

Important Warranty Information
Regarding Television Format Viewing
Wide screen format PDP Displays (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 nonexpanded standard format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 5% 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 stationary images that exceed the above guidelines can
cause uneven aging of PDP Displays that leave subtle,but permanent burned-in
ghost images in the PDP picture.To avoid this,vary the programming and images,
and primarily display full screen moving images,not stationary patterns or dark bars.
On PDP models that offer picture sizing features,use these controls to view different formats as a full screen
picture.
Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven PDP aging as a
result of format selection and use,as well as burned-in images, are not covered by your Samsung limited
warranty.
User Instructions

Memorizing the Channels
Your PDP 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 the Video Signal-source
Before your television can begin memorizing the available channels, you must specify the type of
signal source that is connected to the PDP (i.e., an antenna or a cable system).

Setting up Your PDP (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
display. This monitor automatically tells the PC system its Extended Display Identification data (EDID)
using Display Data Channel (DDC) protocols.

How to Set up Your PC Software (Windows only)
The Windows display-settings for a typical computer are shown below. However, the actual screens
on your PC will probably be different, depending upon your particular version of Windows and your
particular video card. But even if your actual screens look different, the same, basic set-up information
will apply in almost all cases. (If not, contact your computer manufacturer or Samsung Dealer.)
On the windows screen, select in the following
sequence : Start ➝ Settings ➝ Control Panel.
When the control panel screen appears, click on
“Display” and a display dialog-box will appear.
Select the “Settings” tab in the display dialogbox.
The two key variables that apply to the PDP-PC
interface are “resolution” and “colors”.
The correct settings for these two variables are:
• Size (sometimes called “resolution”)
:640 x 480 pixels.
• Color: “24-bit” color (might also be expressed as “16 million colors”)Shown at left is
a typical screen for “Display” dialog box.
If a vertical-frequency option exists on your
display settings dialog box, the correct value is
“60” or “60 Hz.” Otherwise, just click “OK”
and exit the dialog box.

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 foreignlanguage 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.

At this point, one of the TV-Ratings is selected.
Press the RIGHT button : Depending on your existing setup, a letter “U” or “B” will start
blinking.
(U= Unblocked, B= Blocked)
While the “U” or ”B” is blinking, press the UP or DOWN button to block or unblock the
category.
Press the RIGHT button to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected,
and no letters will blink.
To select a different TV-Rating, press the UP or DOWN button and then repeat the process.
Note 1: The TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA have additional options. See the next step to
change any of the following sub-ratings:
FV: Fantasy violence
D: Sexually Sugessive Dialog
L: Adult Language
S: Sexual situation
V: 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-G, TV-PG, TV-14 and TV-MA). The sub-ratings (D, L, S, V) work together
similarly. (See next section.)
7
How to set the FV, D, L, S and V sub-ratings.
First, select one of these TV-Ratings: TV-Y7, TV-PG, TV-14 or TV-MA (See Step 4, on
previous page).
Next, while the TV-Rating is selected, repeatedly press the RIGHT button.
This will cycle through the available sub-ratings (FV,L, S, D or V).
A blinking letter (“U” or “B”) will be displayed for each sub-rating. While the “U” or “B” is
blinking, press the UP or DOWN button to change the sub-rating.
Press the RIGHT button to save the TV guidelines. A TV-Rating will be selected and no
letters will select. To select a different TV-Rating, press the UP or DOWN 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.
8
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
• 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 TV-Y and TV-Y7 categories
are colored blue.
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.)
