solve the problem.
If the problem still persists, please contact your local Panasonic dealer for
assistance.

Check that the output of the external equipment matches the input of the
TV.
Chaotic image, noisy

No image can be displayed
●●
Check the correct input mode is selected.

●●
Reset channels.
Watching > Tuning and editing channels > Auto Tuning
White spots or shadow images (noise)
●●
Check the position, direction, and connection of the aerial.
There may be red spots, blue spots, green spots and black spots on the
screen
●●
An image on a TV screen is created by many small groups of dots known
as pixels (which is similar to the image in a newspaper). It also naturally
follows that higher panel resolutions contain more pixels. To create a
colour image, each pixel consists of three tiny coloured dots (known as
sub-pixels), one each of red, green and blue. Each one of these dots is
precisely controlled by the electronics of the TV to produce the picture.
Whilst Panasonic maintains the highest standards in manufacturing
technology and processes in the construction of these panels, there are a
number of allowable pixel / subpixel failures that still allow the panel to be
defined as a good panel. It is not possible to guarantee absolutely no pixel
loss.

Digital TV
Before requesting service or assistance, please follow these simple guides to
solve the problem.
If the problem still persists, please contact your local Panasonic dealer for
assistance.
Connecting devices such as DTV recorder / PVR / VCR, etc. that also require
an antenna connection to the digital television
●●
To maintain optimum antenna signal quality, use an ‘F’ type TV signal
splitter when connecting two or more devices to the same antenna socket.
Hint: Some degradation of the DTV signal may occur if you are connecting
the aerial through an external device (e.g. DVD Recorder or Set Top Box).
In this case it is better to use a splitter and connect the aerial directly to both
devices.
After digital TV tuning, (or re-tuning) some or all DTV channels are missing
●●
Check to ensure your area is covered by DTV transmissions.
●●
Check that the aerial and antenna cable are designed for DTV reception.
If you live within 5-10 km of DTV transmission towers, a combined VHF
/ UHF Digital TV aerial should be adequate. Outside this area, separate
VHF and UHF aerials provide superior reception performance.
●●
If you live in a unit or apartment, check to ensure the Master Antenna
TV (MATV) system is designed for analogue and DTV reception. Please
consult your body corporate.
Picture infrequently pixelates on some or all channels
●●
Electrical interference caused by local or distant lighting storms, heavy
rain, high wind, etc. may cause picture to break up and / or audio to mute /
distort momentarily.
●●
Impulse noise interference from an infrequently used electrical appliance,
or a passing vehicle or lawn mower with a “noisy” ignition system.
●●
Older style antenna cabling, loose fitting/corroded wall socket connections
/ terminals, etc.
- 197 -
Picture regularly pixelates on some channels, or No signal message
●●
Check Signal Condition via TV Setup menu. If the level of Signal Quality
or Signal Strength is not high or constantly changing, check aerial /
cable connections. If the problem persists, consult your local TV antenna
installer.
●●
Too much signal; is Signal Strength always at full strength? If yes, try
attenuating (reducing) the signal strength.
●●
Check that the aerial and antenna cable are designed for DTV reception.
●●
The received signal may be too weak to allow the TV to reliably lock to the
selected channel to generate a viewable picture. If the problem persists,
consult your local TV aerial installer.
●●
Interference from household appliances (known as impulse noise) such
as light switches, fridges, etc. may cause picture break up and / or audio
distortion. Use high quality quad shielded coaxial cable (RG6Q) fly lead
between TV and antenna wall socket to minimise impulse noise pickup. If
the problem persists, consult your local TV aerial installer.
●●
Antenna installation may be using an aerial amplifier that is faulty or an
older style aerial amplifier that was not designed for digital TV.
●●
Older style antenna cabling, loose fitting / corroded wall socket
connections / terminals, etc.
●●
Turn the TV off with Mains Power On / Off switch, then turn it on again.
= Note =
Digital TV reception is only as good as the antenna and the antenna cabling
delivering the DTV signals to the television. Reliable digital TV reception
requires high quality, robust DTV signals which can only be achieved when
using a TV antenna and cabling designed for digital TV reception.
●●
For further reading, please visit at the following website where you
can download ‘The Digital TV Antenna Systems for Homes Handbook’
information PDF file:
http://www.digitalready.gov.au/publications.aspx
●●
For your safety, the antenna and cabling should be inspected / installed by
a licensed installer that should comply with Australian Standard AS1417.1
for Domestic installations or AS1367 for MATV installations.

Maintenance
Care and Cleaning
First, remove the mains plug from the socket outlet.
■■Display panel, Cabinet, Pedestal
Regular care:
Gently wipe the surfaces of the display panel, cabinet, or pedestal using a
soft cloth to clean the dirt or fingerprints.
For stubborn dirt:
(1) First clean the dust on the surface.
(2) Dampen a soft cloth with clean water or diluted neutral detergent (1
part detergent to 100 parts water).
(3) Wring the cloth firmly. (Please note liquids do not enter the TV inside.
May lead to product failure.)
(4) Finally, wipe away all the moisture.
= Caution =
●●
Do not use a hard cloth or rub the surface too hard, otherwise this may
cause scratches on the surface.
●●
Take care not to subject the surfaces to insect repellent, solvent, thinner
or other volatile substances. This may degrade surface quality or cause
peeling of the paint.
●●
The surface of the display panel is specially treated and may be easily
damaged. Take care not to tap or scratch the surface with your fingernail
or other hard objects.
●●
Do not allow the cabinet and pedestal to make contact with a rubber or
PVC substance for a long time. This may degrade surface quality.
■■Mains plug
●●
Wipe the mains plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. Moisture and dust
may lead to fire or electrical shock.

Wall-hanging bracket
■■Wall-hanging bracket
Choosing to wall mount the TV shall be done at the owner's risk. Always use
a qualified installer to perform a TV wall bracket installation. Incorrect fitting
may cause equipment to fall, resulting in injury and product damage. Any
such damage will void your warranty.
●●
Please contact your local Panasonic dealer to purchase the recommended
wall-hanging bracket.
= Warning =
●●
When optional accessories such as wall brackets, etc. are used, always
read and follow the manufactures installation and usage instructions.
●●
Do not mount the unit directly below ceiling lights (such as spotlights or
halogen lights) which typically give off high heat. Doing so may warp or
damage plastic cabinet parts.
●●
When installing wall brackets you must ensure the wall bracket is not
electrically grounded to metal wall studs. Always ensure that there are no
electrical cables, pipes, etc. in the wall before you begin the wall bracket
installation.
●●
To prevent fall and injury, remove the TV from its fixed wall position when it
is no longer in use.
