Important Warranty Information Regarding

Television Format Viewing

Standard screen format televisions (4:3, the aspect ratio of the screen width to height) are primarily designed to view standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and constantly moving. Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the dark top and bottom letterbox bars

(wide screen pictures), should be limited to no more than 15% of the total television viewing per week.

Wide screen format televisions (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 non-expanded standard format television video and programming, should be limited to no more than 15% 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 any stationary images that exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of picture tubes (CRTs) that leave subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the television picture. To avoid this, vary the programming and images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not stationary patterns or dark bars.

On television models that offer picture sizing features, use these controls to view the different formats as a full screen picture.

Be careful in the selection and duration of television formats used for viewing. Uneven CRT aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.

Connecting VHF and UHF Antennas

If your antenna has a set of leads that look like this, see “Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads,” below.

If your antenna has one lead that looks like this, see “Antennas with

75-ohm Round Leads,” on next page.

If you have two antennas, see “Separate VHF and UHF Antennas,” on next page.

Antennas with 300-ohm Flat Twin Leads

If you are using an off-air antenna (such as a roof antenna or “rabbit ears”) that has 300-ohm twin flat leads, follow the directions below.

1

Place the wires from the twin leads under the screws on the

300-75 ohm adaptor (not supplied). Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws.

2

Plug the adaptor into the “ANT

1 IN” terminal on the rear panel.

Separate VHF and UHF Antennas

If you have two separate antennas for your TV (one VHF and one UHF), you must combine the two antenna signals before connecting the antennas to the TV. This procedure requires an optional combiner-adaptor (available at most electronics shops).

1

Connect both antenna leads to the combiner.

2

Plug the combiner into the

“ANT 1 IN” terminal on the rear panel.

Connecting Cable TV

You can connect different cable systems to your TV, including cable without a cable box, and cable with a cable box that descrambles some or all channels.

Cable without a Cable Box

If you want to connect cable, and you do not need to use a cable box:

Plug the incoming cable into the “ANT 1 IN” terminal on the rear panel.

Cable with a Cable box that Descrambles All Channels

1

Find the cable that is connected to the ANTENNA

OUT terminal on your cable box.

œ This terminal might be labeled

“ANT OUT”, “VHF OUT”, or simply “OUT”.

2

Connect the other end of this cable to the “ANT 1 IN” terminal on the rear panel.

Connecting to a Cable Box that Descrambles Some Channels

If your cable box descrambles only some channels (such as premium channels), follow the instructions below. You will need a two-way splitter, an RF (A/B) switch, and four lengths of coaxial cable. (These items are available at most electronics stores.)

1

Find and disconnect the cable that is connected to the

ANTENNA IN terminal on your cable box.

œ This terminal might be labeled

“ANT IN”, “VHF IN”, or simply “IN”.

2

Connect this cable to a twoway splitter. Connect a coaxial cable between an OUTPUT terminal on the splitter and the

IN terminal on the cable box.

3

Connect a coaxial cable between the ANTENNA OUT terminal on the cable box and the B-IN terminal on the A/B switch.

Your TV can send out signals of its picture and sound to be recorded by a second VCR. To do this, connect your second VCR as follows:

1

Connect a set of audio cables between the “AV OUT

(L, R)” jacks on the TV and the AUDIO IN jacks on the

VCR.

(The VCR input jacks might be either on the front or rear of the VCR.)

2

Connect a video cable between the “AV OUT (VIDEO)” jack on the TV and the VIDEO IN jack on the VCR.

Refer to your VCR’s instructions for more information about how to record using this kind of connection.

Connecting to DVI (Digital Visual Interface)

By inputting a high-bandwidth digital content protection high-definition picture source to the

DIGITAL INPUT jack on the TV, high-definition pictures can be displayed on the screen in their digital forms. (This DIGITAL INPUT jack is for use in the future when high-bandwidth digital content protection DTV decoders, DVD players and D-VHS are put on the market.)

1

Connect a set of audio cables between the “DVI IN

(AUDIO-L, R)” jacks on the TV and the AUDIO OUT jacks on the Set-Top Box.

2

Connect a video cable between the “HDMI/DVI IN” jack on the TV and the VIDEO OUT jack on the Set-Top

Box.

• The DIGITAL INPUT jack can only be used with 1080i and 480p picture signals. Set the DTV decoder

DIGITAL OUTPUT jack output setting to 1080i or 480p. The DIGITAL INPUT jack is not compatible with the picture signal of a PC.

Connecting to HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)

Connect a HDMI cable between the “HDMI/DVI IN” jacks on the TV and the HDMI OUT jacks on the Set-

Top Box.

Please check that the HDMI source is powered on.

If not, you can not select “HDMI” in the “Source List” on-screen menu.

With proper care, your TV unit will give you many years of service. Please follow these guidelines to get the maximum performance from your TV.

Placement

• Do not place the TV near extremely hot, cold, humid or dusty places.

• Keep the ventilation openings clear; do not place the TV on a soft surface, such as cloth or paper.

Using Your TV in Another Country

If you plan to take your TV with you to a foreign country, please be aware of the different television systems that are in use around the world. A TV designed for one system may not work properly with another system due to differences in the TV channel frequencies.
