Question

How does pixel shift (and other anti-burn in technology) work?

I've read about calibrating plasma sets and many mention to not use the 4:3 setting with grey or black sides to avoid a line between the side and the picture. Is this something I should not need to worry about anymore? I'd prefer not to watch my older DVDs stretched out or zoomed in. Is the pixel shifting happening as I watch television and completely transparent to me? Does anything happen when the television is off to prevent burn in?

Although officially, none of the Samsung Plasmas require a break-in period or suffer from burn-in, I would still suggest you follow some simple steps to ensure the long life of your unit. Make sure that your anti-burn-in features, such as the pixelshift (which shifts the pixels a predetermined distance to "refresh" the pixels with a different image) and scrolling functions (which allows for the mass reset of all the pixels on the screen at once), are active and working properly. Also make sure that you do not leave a static image on the screen for too long. With these features, you should be able to view your 4:3 content with out much worry.

All Samsung TV’s come with a Shop Mode or Store Demo function. Designed for retailers who need a way to reset demo TVs to their factory settings automatically, these functions return a TV to its factory settings every 20 minutes or after the TV is powered off.

If your TV does not retain your settings, most likely it is in Shop Mode or Store Demo Mode.
To turn off Shop Mode, follow these steps:

1. Press the Vol + button on your TV.
2. While your TV screen displays the volume level, immediately press and hold the MENU button on the TV for seven seconds.
3. The word Dynamic appears in the middle of the screen momentarily.
4. Your TV should no longer be in Shop Mode. If your TV continues to return to the default mode, please make a service request at http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o....

Yes, this television does support 24p, I own this television and use a bluray player which supports 24p with this television, and the television picks up the 24p signal instantly. Just make sure that your bluray player is set to 1080p 24p and use an hdmi cable. The television will scale the 1080p 24p signal to 720p 24p. There will be no perceivable loss of detail and motion will be film-like.

This is most likely due to the Anynet+ feature. If you head into the TVs Anynet+ option, then turn either the entire option off or toggle off the option to switch to the HDMI source when it turns on, that should alleviate your issue.

The PN50B450 does in fact have an optical audio output along the rear of the unit. I'm sorry that it did not work on the other units you tried, but I can assure you that there is one on the PN50B450. It should be located right under the HDMI1 input.

I would be happy to help you out with this. In order to change the aspect ratio (screen size), you will want to head into the TV's menu, then to the picture sub-menu. Once there, head into the "Picture Options" option. Within that option, you will see the "Size" adjustment. Clicking into that will allow you to change the picture size of the screen.
