Dear Panasonic Customer,
We hope that you have many years of enjoyment from your new TV. The Quick Start Guide section at the beginning of
this instruction book will allow you to use the TV as quickly as possible. We recommend that you then read the complete
instruction book, and keep it to refer to as you explore the range of advanced features that this Plasma TV offers.
Analogue and Digital television – what are they?
Analogue transmission is the system that has been used for many years for broadcasting television programmes. With continuous
improvements in technology it is now possible to transmit programmes in a digital format, allowing clearer pictures, more stations and
other services to be displayed on screen. Digital television is provided in three different ways; it can be sent along a cable connection
direct to your house, broadcast from a satellite, or broadcast using traditional land based (terrestrial) transmitters. The first two options
require you to have an extra “set top box” decoder and in the case of satellite, a receiving dish mounted outdoors. While allowing you
to receive traditional analogue transmissions in the usual way, this television can also receive terrestrial digital services using an
integrated (Digital Video Broadcasting) decoder. This allows you to enjoy the new era of digital terrestrial television, including
interactive services, without the need for a “set top box” or satellite dish – an adequate roof or loft mounted antenna is all you need.

face, or objects which cannot withstand heat, close to this port, otherwise burns or deformation could result.
Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the Plasma TV.
•If the Plasma TV is moved while some of the cables are still connected, the cables may become damaged, and fire
or electric shock could result.
Disconnect the power cord plug from the wall socket as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning.
• Electric shocks can result if this is not done.
Clean the power cable regularly to prevent it becoming dusty.
•If dust built up on the power cord plug, the resultant humidity can damage the insulation, which could result in fire.
Pull the power cord plug out from the wall outlet and wipe the mains lead with a dry cloth.
This Plasma TV radiates infrared rays, therefore it may affect other infrared communication equipment.
Install your infrared sensor in a place away from direct or reflected light from your Plasma TV.
Maintenance
The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning
cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.
• If the surface is particularly dirty, wipe with a soft, lint-free cloth which has been soaked in pure water or water to
which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added, and then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth of the same
type until the surface is dry.
• Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects, otherwise the surface may
become damaged. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner,
otherwise the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.
If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
• If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been
added and then wring the cloth dry. Use this cloth to wipe the cabinet, and then wipe it dry with a dry cloth.
• Do not allow any detergent to come into direct contact with the surface of the Plasma TV.
If water droplets get inside the unit, operating problems may result.
• Avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner, otherwise the quality of the
cabinet surface may be adversely affected or the coating may peel off. Furthermore, do not leave it for long
periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC.
