Important Warranty Information Regarding
Television Format Viewing
✎ See the warranty card for more information on warranty
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
