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 screen bottom etc.), or programmes in panorama or 4:3 image format on the screen. Constantly displaying
still pictures can cause image burn-in on the LED screen, which will affect image quality. To reduce risk of this effect,
please follow the recommendations below:
• Avoid displaying the same TV channel 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 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 Set-top 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 programs in aspect ratios that are different
from the aspect ratio of the TV may cause image retention. Always endeavour to avoid black borders 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 picture.
IMPORTANT: Image retention issues are not covered by your Samsung® warranty.
