IMPORTANT WARRANTY INFORMATION REGARDING TELEVISION FORMAT VIEWING
Standard screen format televisions with aspect ratios of 4:3 (the ratio of the screen width to screen height) are primarily designed to display standard format full-motion video. The images displayed on them should primarily be in the standard 4:3 ratio format and be 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 with aspect ratios of 16:9 (the ratio of the screen width to screen height) are primarily designed to display 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 crawls, 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 LED 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 aging as a result of format selection and use, as well as other burned-in images, is not covered by your Samsung limited warranty
