User Instructions

Screen Image retention
Do not display a still image (such as on a video game) on the plasma display panel for more than several minutes as it can cause screen image
retention. This image retention is also known as 'screen burn'. To avoid such image retention, refer to e-Manual to reduce the degree of brightness
and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image.
Heat on the top of the Plasma TV
The top side of the product may be hot after long periods of use as heat dissipates from the panel through the vent hole in the upper part of the
product. This is normal and does not indicate any defect or operation failure of the product. However, children should be prevented from touching
the upper part of the TV.
The TV is making a 'cracking' noise.
A 'cracking' noise may occur when the product contracts or expands due to a change in the surrounding environment such as temperature or
humidity. This is normal and not a defect of the unit.
Cell Defects
Your plasma TV has a panel containing 2,360,000 (HD-level) to 6,221,000 (FHD-level) pixels which require sophisticated technology to produce.
However, there may be a few bright or dark pixels on the screen. These pixels will have no impact on the performance of the product.
Avoid operating the TV at temperatures below 41°F (5°C)
A still image displayed too long may cause permanent damage to the PDP Panel.
Watching the Plasma TV in 4:3 format for a long period of time may leave traces of borders displayed on the left, right and center of
the screen caused by the difference of light emission on the screen. Playing a DVD or a game console may cause similar effects to
the screen. Damages caused by the above effect are not covered by the Warranty.
After-images on the Screen.
Displaying still images from Video games or a 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 for a long time.
Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention. Burn-in is not covered by the warranty.
The glass screen of your PDP TV can break if you accidently drop the TV. Handle the TV with care.
When moving the TV, always have two or more people pick it up and carry it as a safety precaution. Do not lay the TV flat on its
face or back.
Your Samsung Plasma TV is a high quality television that has been carefully packaged to protect the integrity of its glass panel and component parts
during shipment. It is, nonetheless, a fragile piece of electronics that requires careful handling. Refrain from putting undue stress on any part of the
packaging when shipping or unpacking the TV. Use care when installing the TV. Avoid placing the TV in a location where it may be struck, exposed to
sharp impacts, or fall. Panel breakage caused by a fall or impact strike is not covered under the manufacturer's warranty.
