importanWt arrantyinformatioRnegardingTelevisionFormatViewing Wide screen format PDP 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 side - bars on nonexpanded 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 togos , 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 PDP Displays that leave subtle , but permanent burned - in ghost images in the PDP picture . To avoid this , vary the programming and images , and primarily display full screen moving images , not stationary patterns or dark bars . On PDP 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 used for viewing . Uneven PDP aging as a result of format selection and use , as welt as burned - in images , are not covered by your Samsung limited warranty . U . S .

i User instructions i O 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 page 23 of this manual to reduce the degree of brightness and contrast of the screen when displaying a still image . Altitude The PDP can only operate normally at heights under 6500ft . 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 product . The product is making a ' cracking ' noise . A ' cracking ' noise may occur when the product contracts or expands due to a change of surrounding environment such as temperature or humidity . This is normat and not a defect of the unit . Cell Defects The PDP uses a panel consisting of 1,230,000 ( SD - level ) to 3,150,000 ( HD - level ) pixels which require sophisticated technology to produce . However , there may be a few bright or dark pixels on the screen . These pixets wilt have no impact on the performance of the product . Avoid operating the TV at temperatures below 5 ° C ( 41 ° F ) 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 and 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 Warranty does not cover any damage caused by image retention . Burn - in is not covered by the warranty .
