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 (eRTs) or Plasma Display Panels 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 or Plasma Display Panels aging as a result of
format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your Samsung limited warranty.
