2012/02/27 16:08:38
● Do not place any objects on top of the Plasma TV.
If water spills onto the Plasma TV or foreign objects get
inside it, a short-circuit may occur, which could result in
fire or electric shock. If any foreign objects get inside the
Plasma TV, please consult an Authorized Service Center.
● In the unlikely event that you receive a shock from this
product, it is possible that your household outlet may
be wired improperly.
Have an electrician verify that the TV’s outlet is properly
wired. If the symptom persists, have the TV serviced by a
qualified authorized technician.
● To prevent the spread of fire, keep candles
or other open flames away from this
product at all times
■ AC Power Supply Cord
To prevent fire or electric shock:
● The Plasma TV is designed to operate on a 120 V AC,
60 Hz service. Insert the power cord plug as far as it will
go into the wall socket.
If the plug is not fully inserted, heat may generate, which
could cause a fire.
● The included power cord is for use with this unit only.
● Do not use any power cord other than that provided
with this TV.
● Do not handle the power cord plug with wet hands.
● Do not do anything that might damage the power
supply cord.
● When disconnecting the power supply cord, hold the
plug, not the cord.
● Do not use the power supply cord if the plug or cord is
damaged.
Replace the cord or contact your Authorized Service Center.
● Do not use a 3-prong to 2-prong AC plug adapters to
connect your TV’s plug to the wall outlet.
Doing so will defeat the TV plug’s safety feature, which
can lead to a shock hazard. If the wall outlet does not
accommodate a 3-prong plug, have a qualified electrician
replace your outlet and check the associated wiring.
■ Handling the power supply cord
● Insert the power plug fully into the socket outlet. (If the
power plug is loose, it could generate heat and cause fire.)
● Ensure that the power plug is easily accessible.
● Ensure the earth pin on the power plug is securely
connected to prevent electrical shock.
• An apparatus with CLASS I construction shall be
connected to a power socket outlet with a protective
earthing connection.
● Do not touch the power plug with a wet hand. (This may
cause electrical shock.)
● Do not use any power cord other than that provided
with this TV. (This may cause fire or electrical shock.)
● Do not damage the power cord. (A damaged cord may
cause fire or electrical shock.)
• Do not move the TV with the cord plugged in the socket outlet.
• Do not place a heavy object on the cord or place the cord
near a high-temperature object.
• Do not twist the cord, bend it excessively, or stretch it.
• Do not pull on the cord. Hold onto the power plug body
when disconnecting cord.
• Do not use a damaged power plug or socket outlet.
● If water or an object gets inside the Plasma TV, if the
Plasma TV is dropped, or if the enclosure becomes
damaged, unplug the power supply cord immediately.
A short-circuit may occur, which could cause a fire. Contact
an Authorized Service Center for an evaluation.
■ Radio waves
● Do not place this TV in any medical institutions or
locations with medical devices.
Radio waves from this TV may interfere with the medical
devices and cause accidents due to the malfunction.
● Do not use this TV near any automatic control devices
such as automatic doors or fire alarms.
Radio waves from this TV may interfere with the automatic
control devices and cause accidents due to the malfunction.
● Keep this TV away at least 9 inches (22 cm) from the
location where a cardiac pacemaker is implanted.
Radio waves from this TV may interfere with the operation
of the pacemaker.
CAUTION
● Do not cover the ventilation holes.
Doing so may cause the Plasma TV to overheat, which can
cause a fire or damage to the Plasma TV.
● Leave a space of 3 15/16” (10 cm) or more at the top,
left and right, and 2 3/4” (7 cm) or more at the rear.
● When using the pedestal, keep the space between the
bottom of the TV and the pedestal or stand surface
clear from objects that may obstruct ventilation.
■ When Moving the Plasma TV
● Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the
Plasma TV.
Moving the TV with its cables attached might damage the
cables which, in turn, can cause fire or electric shock.
● To prevent an electric shock, disconnect the power
plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before
carrying out any cleaning.
● Transport only in upright position.
Transporting the unit with its display panel facing upright or
downward may cause damage to the internal circuitry.
● Using a dry cloth, clean any dust from the power supply
cord and plug regularly.
Build-up of dust on the power cord plug can increase
humidity, which might damage the insulation and cause a
fire.
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.
The TV will still consume some power as long as the
power supply cord is connected to the wall outlet.
● Display panel is made of glass. Do not apply strong
force or impact to the display panel.
This may cause damage resulting in injury.
● The TV is heavy. TV should be handled by 2 or more
people. Support as shown to avoid injury by the TV
tipping or falling.
● If a problem occurs (such as no picture or no sound),
or if smoke or an abnormal odor is detected from the
Plasma TV, unplug the power supply cord immediately.
Continued use of the TV under these conditions might
cause a fire or permanent damage to the TV. Have the TV
evaluated by an Authorized Service Center. Servicing of the
TV by unauthorized personnel is strongly discouraged due
to its high voltage.

Viewing 3D images on TV
Precautions for Viewing 3D Images
Cautions During Viewing
Do not use devices that emit strong electromagnetic waves (such as cellular phones or personal transceivers) near the
3D Eyewear. Doing so may cause the 3D Eyewear to malfunction.
If the 3D Eyewear is used in a room in which fluorescent lights (50 Hz) are used, the light within the room may appear
to flicker. In this case, either darken or switch off the fluorescent lights when using the 3D Eyewear.
Wear the 3D Eyewear correctly. 3D images will not appear correctly if the 3D Eyewear is worn upside down or back-to-front.
For comfortable viewing
View from at least the recommended distance (3 times the effective height of the screen),
Recommended Distance:
For a 55-inch television, 6.89’ (2.1 m) or more. For a 65-inch television, 7.87’ (2.4 m) or more.
When the top and bottom area of the screen are blackened, such as when playing movies, view the screen at a distance
3 times further than the height of the actual image. (That makes the viewing distance closer than above recommended
distance.)
Stop using the 3D Eyewear immediately if your skin feels unusual.
In rare cases, the paint or materials used in the 3D Eyewear may cause an allergic reaction.
Stop using the 3D Eyewear immediately if you experience any redness, pain, or itching on the nose or temples.
Prolonged use may cause such symptoms due to excess pressure, which may result in the user feeling unwell.
Use the 3D Eyewear where there is no interference from other devices with Bluetooth® signals.
Viewing 3D images
The following 3D content can be enjoyed on this TV:
• A 3D Blu-ray disc, played on 3D capable Blu-ray player/recorder that is connected via HDMI cable.
• 3D TV broadcast (program)
• 3D Photo and 3D Movie taken by LUMIX/Camcorder.
• 3D game played on 3D capable video game console, connected via HDMI cable.
Optional Accessories (p. 8)
* For more detail on usage of 3D Eyewear (POWER button, Accessories and how to register, etc.), please refer to
operating manuals for the purchased 3D Eyewear. 3D experience differs depending on the type of 3D Eyewear.
Using the 3D Eyewear
Turn on the 3D Eyewear.
Make sure that registration is finished completely.
Put on the 3D Eyewear.
Viewing 3D images
When the HDMI receives information in which 3D mode is detected, 3D images are automatically displayed
according to the signal.
If the 3D images are not displayed correctly, or if the images cause discomfort, the images can be adjusted by
“3D format select” or “3D settings”.
● Change the view 3D⇔2D, 3D settings.
After Use
Turn off the 3D Eyewear.
After using the 3D Eyewear, store it in the case.
Change the view 3D⇔2D

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Questions
Answers
Why doesn’t the Remote
Control work?
Check that the batteries are fresh, are of the same type and are installed with the correct polarity (+ & -).
To operate other devices, such as changing channels when using Cable, or Satellite boxes,
or operating non-Panasonic Blu-ray players, use the remote supplied with the device.
Why doesn’t the Touch Pad
Controller work?
Check that the batteries are fresh, are of the same type and are installed with the correct polarity (+ & -).
Check if the pairing range is within 1.6 feet (50 cm).
Check if the Touch Pad Controller is pointed toward the TV to turn on the power.
Why is there no picture or just
a blue, black or snowy screen
being displayed?
Check if the power cord is plugged in and the TV is turned on (front red LED light should
be on, not blinking).

and connecting it again. If there was a temporary power surge on the AC line it may now
be OK. If the blinking returns, call 1-877-95-VIERA (U.S.A.) or 1-866-330-0014 (Canada).
How do I display eHELP (built-in Manual) ?
Press HELP on the TV’s remote control to display eHELP. (p. 19)
Care and Cleaning
First, unplug the Power cord plug from the wall outlet.
Display panel
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, after cleaning up the dust, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted, mild liquid dish soap (1 part
mild liquid dish soap diluted by 100 times the amount of water), and then wring the cloth to remove excess liquid. Use this cloth
to wipe the surface of the display panel, 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. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile
substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.
Cabinet
If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in diluted, mild liquid dish soap 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 mild liquid dish soap 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.
Do not let articles made from rubber or PVC be in contact with the TV for long periods of time.
Pedestal
Cleaning
Wipe the surfaces with a soft, dry cloth. If the unit is particularly dirty, clean it using a cloth soaked with water to which a small
amount of mild liquid dish soap has been added and then wipe with a dry cloth.
Do not use products such as solvents, thinner, or household wax for cleaning, as they can damage the surface coating.
(If using a chemically-treated cloth, follow the instructions supplied with the cloth.)
Do not attach sticky tape or labels, as they can make the surface of the pedestal dirty. Do not allow long-term contact with
rubber, vinyl products, or the like. (Doing so will cause deterioration.)
Power cord plug
Wipe the plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. (Moisture and dust can lead to fire or electrical shock.)
Back panel (Cooling fan)
20
The main unit is equipped with a cooling fan on the upper part of the back side. To remove dust or other foreign materials
adhering to the fan, vacuum it attaching lightly the opening of the suction nozzle of a vacuum cleaner to the vent holes.
* Be extremely careful not to damage the display panel or other parts.
If a message appears even after cleaning and then turning on, contact your dealer or service center.
