■ Set up
This Plasma TV may fall and can cause personal injury or
even death if not installed correctly. To prevent personal
injury or death, follow these warnings:
● Install the Plasma TV in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommended pedestal or stand,
corresponding hardware and installation instructions.
This Plasma TV is for use only with the following
optional accessories. Use with any other type of optional
accessories may cause instability. The following accessories
are manufactured by Panasonic Corporation.
• Wall-hanging bracket (Angled)
TY-WK4P1RW
4
● Be sure to ask a qualified technician to carry out the
installation and set-up.
Two or more people are required to install or remove the
television.
● Some wall mounts (wall-hanging brackets) are not
designed to be mounted to walls with steel studs or old
cinder block constructions.
Ask your dealer or licensed contractor to properly secure
the wall-hanging bracket.
● Do not route the TV’s power cord inside the wall.
The power cord was not designed for in-wall mounting.
Doing so can lead to fire hazard.
● Do not place the Plasma TV or its stand on a sloped or
unstable surface.
The Plasma TV may fall or tip over.
● Do not support the Plasma TV on a non-specified
pedestal.
● Do not place the Plasma TV on furniture that can easily
be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.
● Do not climb or allow children to climb on the Plasma TV
● Place or install the Plasma TV where it cannot be
pushed, pulled over or knocked down.
● Route all cords and cables such that they cannot be
tripped over or pulled by curious children.
● 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 110-127 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.
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.

■ About wireless LAN
● Wireless LAN adapter and Access point need to be obtained separately.
Press to exit from
a menu screen
■ Press to go back to
the previous screen
For the latest information on applicable LAN adapters, check the following website:
http://Panasonic.com/NetConnect
● Check that the Access point supports WPS*.
(If it does not support WPS, the encryption key of the Access point is required when
configuring settings.)
● Follow the instructions on the Access point setup screen and configure the appropriate
security settings.
For more details on setting of Access point, please refer to operating manual for the Access
point.
● We recommend using 11n (5 GHz) for the wireless system between the wireless
LAN adapter and Access point.
Communication is also possible with 11a, 11b, and 11g (2.4 GHz), but the
communication speed may be slower.
● If the wireless system of the Access point is changed, devices that could connect by
wireless LAN may no longer be able to connect.
● When EASY IPTV, Network camera, DLNA, or other device is using the network, do
not disconnect the wireless LAN adapter.
● Keep the TV away from the following devices as much as possible:
Wireless LAN, microwaves, and other devices that use 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz signals.
Otherwise, the TV failures such as malfunction may occur due to the radio wave
interference.

DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminals.
Caution
● Depending on your DVD player and DVD-Audio software the copyright protection function may operate and disable optical
output.
● When an ATSC channel is selected, the output from the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack will be Dolby Digital. When an NTSC
channel is selected, the output will be PCM.
● When playing a movie on SD Card Movie player, when the sound has been recorded in Dolby Digital, the output from the
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal will be Dolby Digital. When the sound is recorded in other formats, the output will be PCM.
Closed Caption (CC)
● For viewing the CC of digital broadcasting, set the aspect to FULL (If viewing with H-FILL, JUST, ZOOM or 4:3;
characters might be cut off).
● The CC can be displayed on the TV only when the receiver (such as a Cable box or satellite receiver) has the CC set
to ON within the device itself. Check with your Cable or Satellite provider for instructions. The TV’s CC button does not
operate the Satellite or Cable box’s CC function.
● If the CC is set to On on both the receiver and TV when the signal is 480i (except for the HDMI connection), the CC
may overlap on the TV.
● If a digital program is being output in analog format, the CC data will also be output in analog format.
● If the recorder or output monitor is connected to the TV, the CC needs to be set up on the recorder or output monitor.

suggested check. If this does not solve the problem, visit the Panasonic web site for further assistance. (see cover)
Questions
Picture
54
Answers
How do I view the picture from
devices such as a: Cable/
Satellite box, game console,
Blu-ray or DVD player?
Press the INPUT button on the remote to select the correct
input source.
Check that the device is turned on and functioning
correctly.
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)
Press the INPUT button on the remote to select the correct input source.
Ensure all connections are correct and secure.
When using external video source, such as a Cable/Satellite box or
DVD player, check that the device is on and functioning correctly.
Press MENU on the TV’s remote control. If the menu is
displayed, then the TV is working; recheck above steps.
Why doesn’t the picture look
like it is in High Definition?
Press the INFO button on the remote to confirm the type of signal
being received (p. 17). HD signal should be 720P, 1080i or 1080p.
Select a High Definition channel from your HD source
(Cable, Satellite or fiber optic service). HD channels
sometimes broadcast non-HD content.
Ensure that your HD source (HD box, Blu-ray player, etc.)
is connected to the TV with an HDMI or Component cable
and set to output an HD video signal.
Why do black bars appear on
the top and bottom and/or sides
of the screen?
Change the format (aspect ratio) of the picture by pressing
the FORMAT button on the remote control. (p. 18)
Check the aspect settings on your external video source,
such as Cable/Satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray Disc player, etc.
Note: Some content, such as film-based movies, are available in
extra-wide format. Top and bottom bars are unavoidable.
Why is the picture snowy when
“ANT/Cable in” is selected?
When using a cable service (without a box), check that all
connections are secure.
When using a cable or satellite box, change the connection
(wiring) to Composite, Component or HDMI. (p. 11)
If you’re using an antenna, then check that connections are
secure. Change the position or direction of the antenna and
check the “Signal meter”. (p. 43)
Why is the picture chaotic and/
or torn and/or with a buzz in the
speakers?
Check if electrical products such as kitchen appliances,
fluorescent lights or light dimmers are nearby. They may
interfere with the TV’s picture.
Try viewing a picture from another device, such as a DVD player
or a game console, to narrow down the source of the problem.
Why is there a black box on the
screen?
Change settings of Closed Caption (CC). (p. 17, 47)
Why is the screen blank and the
power indicator blinking?
The TV has gone into shutdown mode to protect itself. Try unplugging it for a
few minutes and connecting it again. If there was a temporary power surge
on the AC line it may now be OK. If the blinking returns, please contact your
local Panasonic dealer or Panasonic Service Center for assistance. (p. 59)
Why do some small spots on
the screen remain bright or
dark?
The Plasma panel is made up of a few million pixels and
is produced with advanced technology through an intricate
process. Sometimes a few pixels may be bright or dark.
These pixels do not indicate a defective panel and will have
no impact on the performance of the TV.
Questions
Answers
Sound
Check that the correct SAP (Secondary Audio Program) is
selected by pressing the SAP button on the remote control.
Check that all connections of external equipment
connected to the TV are secure.
When using Cable or Satellite box, check the device’s audio
settings. (example: try changing the box’s Audio Range to ‘narrow’)
Why is there a clicking, ticking
or buzzing sound coming from
the TV unit?
When TV power is turned on or shut off there are electrical
components that make a click sound. This is normal operation.
Changes in the temperature and humidity of the room may
cause thermal expansion and contraction that can produce
sounds. This is not a sign of faulty operation or a malfunction.
What is the easiest and best
way to connect a High-Definition
Cable or Satellite box to the TV?
Use an HDMI cable. It carries both digital video and audio
signal in HD. HDMI cable is the only cable needed to
connect an HD device to the TV.
Why does the CC button not
display Closed Caption?
When viewing TV via an HDMI connected device, such as
a Cable or Satellite box, CC must be enabled at the device.
Closed Caption is available only at supported TV programming.
Why does the screen and back
cover of the TV get warm?
The main unit radiates heat and some of the parts may
become hot. This is normal operation and does not affect
the performance of the set.
Ensure good ventilation.
Do not block the ventilation holes of the TV and do not
place the TV on top of other equipment.
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 is the “ANT/Cable” option
at the top of the “Input select”
menu gray-out and cannot be
selected?
During “First time setup”, you indicated in step - that
you are using Cable or Satellite box and in step - b that
the box is connected to one of the TV’s AV inputs. In this
case, the Antenna/Cable input is deactivated to prevent
unintentional switching into unused tuner. To re-activate,
press MENU, select SETUP and repeat “First time setup”.
Some menu items are grayedout and cannot be selected.
Why?
Depending on certain modes or the selected input, some
options are not available. For example, Zoom adjustments are
only available when the FORMAT is changed to zoom mode.

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, 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 a weak 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
56
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.)
