that the Bluetooth speaker and the wireless access point are on a straight line, and the
Bluetooth speaker is placed as close as possible to the TV.
To minimise interruptions, we recommend a wireless access point that uses a 5 GHz
frequency.
If the problem persists, we recommend that you use a wired connection.

Precautions for wireless Internet
●●
This TV supports the IEEE 802.11 a /b /g /n /ac communication protocols. Samsung recommends using IEEE
802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via a Home Network may not play back smoothly.
""
Some of the IEEE 802.11 communication protocols may not be supported depending on the model or geographical
area.
●●
To use wireless Internet, the TV must be connected to a wireless access point or modem. If the wireless access
point supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.
●●
Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless access point. If the channel set is currently being
used by the wireless access point to communicate with another device, the result is usually interference and/
or a communications failure.
●●
Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security system,
you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then needed to connect to a
security-enabled access point.
Wireless security protocols
The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols. The TV cannot connect to non-certified
wireless access point.
––
Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
––
Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
In compliance with the Wi-Fi certification specifications, Samsung TVs do not support WEP or TKIP security
encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode. If the wireless access point supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected
Setup), you can connect the TV to your network using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal
Identification Number). WPS automatically configures the SSID and WPA key settings.

The TV supports MSC (Mass Storage Class) USB devices only. MSC is a class designation for mass storage
devices. Types of MSC devices include external hard drives, flash card readers, and digital cameras. (USB hubs

to recognise a USB device or read the files on the device if it is connected with a USB extension cable. Do not
disconnect USB devices while they are transferring files.
●●
When connecting an external hard drive, use the USB (HDD 5V 1A) port. We recommend that you use an
external hard drive with its own power adapter.
●●
Certain digital cameras and audio devices may not be compatible with the TV.
●●
If there are multiple USB devices connected to the TV, the TV might not be able to recognise some or all the
devices. USB devices that use high-power input should be connect to the USB (HDD 5V 1A) port.

Installing an anti-theft lock
An anti-theft lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for the lock slot on the
back of the TV. The slot has a
icon next to it. To use the lock, wrap the lock cable around an object that is too heavy
to carry and then thread it through the TV's lock slot. The lock is sold separately. The method of using an anti-theft
lock may differ for each model. Refer to the lock's user manual for more information.

Read Before Connecting a Computer (Supported Resolutions)
Check the supported resolution for PC input signals.
When you connect your TV to a computer, set the computer's video card to one of the standard resolutions listed
in the tables below or on the next pages. The TV will automatically adjust to the resolution you choose. Note that
the optimal and recommended resolutions are 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz (UHD model series) and 7680 x 4320 at 60 Hz
(Q900RB model). Choosing a resolution not included in the tables can result in a blank screen or just the power
indicator turning on. Refer to the user manual of your graphics card for compatible resolutions.
"" The native resolutions are 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz (UHD model series) and 7680 x 4320 at 60 Hz (Q900RB model) with the
Input Signal Plus set to On. The native resolution is 3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz with the Input Signal Plus set to Off.
