Important Safety Information


Always be careful when using your TV receiver. 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 TV.
• Keep the safety and operating instructions for future reference.
• Heed all warnings on the TV receiver and in the operating instructions.
• Follow all operating and use instructions.
• Unplug the TV receiver 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 TV receiver 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 TV on an unstable cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or
table where it can fall. A falling TV 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 TV. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions when mounting the unit, and use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer. Move the TV 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 TV receiver. 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 TV receiver on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface.
Do not place it near a radiator or heat register. If you place the TV receiver on a rack or
bookcase, ensure that there is adequate ventilation and that you’ve followed the
manufacturer’s instructions for mounting.
• Operate your TV receiver 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 TV 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 TV 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 TV.
• Ground outdoor antennas. If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the TV, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide
some protection against voltage surges and built-up
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 TV 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 TV has been exposed to rain or water
- if the TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions
- if the TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged
- when the TV 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 TV 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 TV, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks to determine that the TV is in a safe operating condition.

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 (LCDs) 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 LCD aging
as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your
Samsung limited warranty.


[Note]
If a still image is displayed for an extended period of time, residual images or blurring may appear.
When you need to leave the monitor unused for an extended period of time, adjust the settings so


that the monitor automatically goes into energy saving mode or activates the screen saver to display
moving images.

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 page 8.


If you have two antennas, see “Separate

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.
