Important Warranty Information Regarding
Television Format Viewing
✎ See the warranty card for more information on warranty terms.
Wide screen format LED Displays (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 the images are
constantly moving. Displaying stationary graphics and images on screen, such as the
dark sidebars on non- expanded standard format television video and programming,
should be limited to no more than 5% 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 stationary images
that exceed the above guidelines can cause uneven aging of LED Displays that leave
subtle, but permanent burned-in ghost images in the LED picture. To avoid this, vary
the programming and images, and primarily display full screen moving images, not
stationary patterns or dark bars. On LED models that offer picture sizing features,
use these controls to view different formats as a full screen picture. Be careful in the
selection and duration of television formats you use for viewing. Uneven LED aging as
a result of format selection and use, as well as burned-in images, are not covered by
your Samsung limited warranty.
