Safety Precaution: Securing the TV to the wall
Caution: Pulling, pushing, or climbing on the TV may cause the TV to fall. In
particular, ensure your children do not hang on or destabilise the TV. This
action may cause the TV to tip over, causing serious injuries or death. Follow
all safety precautions provided in the Safety Flyer included with your TV. For
added stability and safety, you can purchase and install the anti-fall device as
described below.
WARNING: Never place a television set in an unstable location. A television set may fall,
causing serious personal injury or death. Many injuries, particularly to children, can be
avoided by taking simple precautions such as
•• Using cabinets or stands recommended by the manufacturer of the television set.
•• Only using furniture that can safely support the television set.
•• Ensuring the television set is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
•• Not placing the television set on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases)
without anchoring both the furniture and the television set to a suitable support.
•• Not placing the television set on cloth or other materials that may be located
between the television set and supporting furniture.
•• Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the television
set or its controls.
If your existing television set is being retained and relocated, the same considerations as
above should be applied.
Preventing the TV from falling
1. Put the screws into one set of brackets, and then firmly
fasten them to the wall. Confirm that the screws are firmly
attached to the wall.
–– You may need additional material such as wall anchors
depending on the type of wall.
2. Put the screws into a second set of brackets, and then
fasten the screws to the TV.
–– These screws may not be supplied with the TV. For a
65~88 inch model, purchase M8 screws.
3. Connect the brackets fixed to the TV and the brackets fixed
to the wall with a durable, heavy-duty string, and then tie
the string tightly.
–– Install the TV near the wall so that it does not fall
–– Connect the string so that the brackets fixed to the wall
are at the same height as or lower than the brackets
fixed to the TV.

Eco sensor and screen brightness
Eco Sensor adjusts the brightness of the TV automatically. This feature measures the light in your
room and optimises the brightness of the TV automatically to reduce power consumption. If you
want to turn this off, go to
Settings > System > Eco Solution > Eco Sensor.
•• If the screen is too dark while you are watching TV in a dark environment, it may be due to the
Eco Sensor.
•• Do not block the sensor with any object. This can decrease picture brightness.
Caring for the TV
If a sticker was attached to the TV screen, some debris
can remain after you remove the sticker. Please clean
the debris off before watching TV.
The exterior and screen of the TV can get scratched
during cleaning. Be sure to wipe the exterior and screen
carefully using a soft cloth to prevent scratches.
Do not spray water or any liquid directly onto the TV.
Any liquid that goes into the product may cause a
failure, fire, or electric shock.
Turn off the TV, then gently wipe away smudges and
fingerprints on the panel with a micro-fiber cloth.
Clean the body or panel of the TV with a micro-fiber
cloth dampened with a small amount of water. After
that, remove moisture with a dry cloth. While cleaning,
do not apply strong force on the surface because it
may cause damage to the panel. Never use flammable
liquids (benzene, thinner, etc.) or a cleaning agent. For
stubborn smudges, spray a small amount of screen
cleaner on the cloth.

Still image warning
Avoid displaying still images (such as jpeg picture files), still image elements (such as TV
channel logos, stock or news bars at the bottom of the screen etc.), or programmes in panorama
or 4:3 image format. Constantly displaying still pictures can cause image burn-in on the LED
screen, which will affect the image quality. To reduce risk of this occurring please follow the
recommendations below:
•• Avoid displaying the still image for long periods.
•• Always try to display any image in full screen. Use the TV set’s picture format menu for the
best possible match.
•• Reduce brightness and contrast to avoid the appearance of after-images.
•• Use all TV features designed to reduce image retention and screen burn. Refer to the e-Manual
for more details.

–– WARNINGS: Image retention, commonly known as screen burn-in, can occur on most types
of television if the same image is displayed continuously. The most common causes of image
retention are logos that remain stationary on the TV screen. These logos are common on many
programmes received via a satellite box. To reduce this risk, avoid displaying still images for
long durations and lower the brightness or contrast settings to decrease the intensity of the
picture. Extended viewing of movies and programmes in aspect ratios that are different from
the aspect ratio of the TV may cause image retention. Always try to avoid black borders at
the top or bottom by using the zoom function. This will help eliminate the black borders and
fit the picture to the entire area of the screen. Using a video game console may cause image
retention and is not recommended. When using a PC input, avoid displaying still images for
long durations and reduce the brightness or contrast settings to decrease the intensity of the
–– IMPORTANT: Image retention issues are not covered by your Samsung® warranty.
