• 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.
Do not cover the ventilation holes.
• Doing so may cause the Plasma TV to overheat, which can cause fire or damage to the Plasma TV.
If using the pedestal, leave a space of 3 15/16” (10 cm) or more at the top, left and right, 2 3/8” (6 cm) or more at the
bottom, and 2 3/4” (7 cm) or more at the rear. If using some other setting-up method, leave a space of 3 15/16” (10
cm) or more at the top, bottom, left and right, and 3/4” (1.9 cm) or more at the rear.
Avoid installing this product near electronic equipment that is readily affected by electromagnetic waves.
• It may cause interference in image, sound, etc. In particular, keep video equipment away from this product.
AC Power Supply Cord
The Plasma TV is designed to operate on 120 V AC, 50/60 Hz.
Securely insert the power cord plug as far as it will go.
• If the plug is not fully inserted, heat may be generated which could cause fire. If the plug is damaged or the wall socket
plate is loose, they should not be used.
Do not handle the power cord plug with wet hands.
• Doing so may cause electric shocks.
Do not do anything that might damage the power cable. When disconnecting the power cable, hold the plug, not
the cable.
• Do not make any modifications to, place heavy objects on, place near hot objects, heat, bend, twist or forcefully pull the
power cable. Doing so may cause damage to the power cable which can cause fire or electric shock. If damage to the
cable is suspected, have it repaired at an Authorized Service Center.
If the Plasma TV will not be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

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 cord immediately.
• Continued use of the TV under these conditions might cause fire or permanent damage to the unit. Have the TV
evaluated at an Authorized Service Center. Service to the TV by any unauthorized personnel is strongly discouraged
due to its high voltage dangerous nature.
If water or foreign objects get inside the Plasma TV, if the Plasma TV is dropped, or if the cabinet becomes
damaged, disconnect the power cord plug immediately.
• A short may occur, which could cause fire. Contact an Authorized Service Center for any repairs that need to be made.

Always be sure to ask a qualified technician to carry out set-up.
When using the Plasma TV
Do not bring your hands, face or objects close to the ventilation holes of the Plasma TV.
• Top of the Plasma TV is usually very hot due to the high temperature of exhaust air being released through the
ventilation holes. Burns or personal injuries can happen if any body parts are brought too close. Placing any object
near the top of the TV could also result in heat damage to the object as well as to the TV if its ventilation holes are
blocked.
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.
Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet 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 from becoming dusty.
• Built-up dust on the power cord plug can increase humidity which might damage the insulation and cause fire. Unplug
the cord from the wall outlet and clean it 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.
Cleaning and 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, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in a weak detergent solution 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.
If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
• If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in a weak detergent solution 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.
Note:
Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to remain
on the Plasma TV.
Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images displayed in 4:3 mode.

Plasma Display panel
Symptoms
Some parts of the screen
do not light up.
An after-image appears.
Whirring sounds can be
heard from the display unit.
Check
• The plasma display panel is manufactured using an extremely high level of
precision technology; however, sometimes some parts of the screen may be
missing picture elements or have luminous spots. This is not a malfunction.
• Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can
cause a permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma TV.
Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images,
teletext and images displayed in 4:3 mode.
Note:
The permanent after-image on the Plasma TV resulting from fixed image use is
not an operating defect and as such is not covered by the Warranty.
This product is not designed to display fixed images for extended periods of time.
• The TV is fitted with a cooling fan to dissipate heat generated during normal
use. The rotating fan may cause a whirring sound but it is not a malfunction.
