❑ Precautions When Displaying a Still Image
A still image may cause permanent damage to the TV screen
● Do not display still image and partially still on the LCD panel for more than 2 hours 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.
●
Watching the LCD 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 a similar effect to the screen. Damages caused by the above effect are not
covered by the Warranty.
● 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.

 Sound Test
If you think you have a sound problem, please perform the sound test. You can check the
sound by playing a built-in melody sound through the TV.
N If you hear no sound from the TV’s speakers, before performing the sound test, make sure Speaker Select is set to TV
speaker in the Sound menu.
N The melody will be heard during the test even if Speaker Select is set to External Speaker or the sound is muted by pressing
the MUTE button.
● Yes: If during the sound test you can hear sound only from one speaker or not at all, select Yes. There may be a problem with
the TV. Contact Samsung’s call center for assistance.
● No: If you can hear sound from the speakers, select No. There may be a problem with your external equipment. Please check
your connections. If the problem still persists, refer to the external device’s user manual.
 Signal Information (digital channels only)
Unlike analogue channels, which can vary in reception quality from ‘snowy’ to clear, digital (HDTV) channels have either perfect
reception quality or you will not receive them at all. So, unlike analogue channels, you cannot fine tune a digital channel. You can,
however, adjust your antenna to improve the reception of available digital channels.
N If the signal strength meter indicates that the signal is weak, physically adjust your antenna to increase the signal strength.
Continue to adjust the antenna until you find the best position with the strongest signal.
❑ Software Upgrade
To keep your product up-to-date with new Digital Television features then software upgrades
are periodically broadcast as part of the normal Television signal. It will automatically detect
these signals and display the software upgrade banner. You are given the option to install the
upgrade.
N Current Version shows version of the software being installed in the TV.
N Alternative Software shows the previous version that can be replaced.
N Software is represented as ‘Year/Month/Day_Version’. The more recent the date, the
newer the software version. Installing the latest version is recommended.
