This reminder is provided to direct the CATV system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides guidelines for
proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as
close to the point of cable entry as practical.
Secure Ventilation
Slots and openings in the cabinet and the back or bottom are provided for ventilation, and to ensure reliable operation of the LCD
TV and to protect it from overheating. These openings must not be blocked or covered. There should be at least 10 cm of space
from these openings. The openings should never be blocked by placing the LCD TV on a bed, sofa, rug or other similar surface.

b.
If liquid has been spilled into the LCD TV.
c.
If the LCD TV has been exposed to rain or water.
d.
If the LCD TV does not operate normally by following the operating instructions.
Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions as improper adjustment of other

LCD TV to normal operation.
e.
If the LCD TV has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged.
f.
When the LCD TV exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.
21) When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician uses replacement parts specified by the manufacturer that
have the same characteristics as the original parts. Unauthorized substitutions may result in fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
22) WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS APPARATUS TO RAIN,
MOISTURE, DRIPPING OR SPLASHING.

23) WARNING: SMALL PARTS CAN PRESENT CHOKING HAZARD IF ACCIDENTALLY SWALLOWED. KEEP SMALL
PARTS AWAY FROM YOUNG CHILDREN.
DISCARD UNNEEDED SMALL PARTS AND OTHER OBJECTS, INCLUDING PACKAGING MATERIALS
AND PLASTIC BAGS/SHEETS TO PREVENT THEM FROM BEING PLAYED WITH BY YOUNG CHILDREN,
CREATING THE POTENTIAL RISK OF SUFFOCATION.
24) CAUTION: The Power switch on this unit will not completely shut off all power from AC outlet. Since the power cord serves
as the main disconnect device for the unit, you will need to unplug it from the AC outlet to shut down all power.
Therefore, make sure the unit has been installed so that the power cord can be easily unplugged from AC outlet
in case of an accident. To avoid fire hazard, the power cord should also be unplugged from the AC outlet when
left unused for a long period of time (for example, when on vacation).
25) CAUTION: TO PREVENT ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT USE THIS PLUG WITH A RECEPTACLE OR OTHER OUTLET
UNLESS THE BLADES CAN BE FULLY INSERTED TO PREVENT BLADE EXPOSURE.
26) CAUTION: USE WITH OTHER STAND MAY RESULT IN INSTABILITY POSSIBLY CAUSING INJURY.
27) CAUTION: DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME
OR EQUIVALENT TYPE.
28) CAUTION: This LCD TV is for use only with the following optional accessory. Use with any other type of optional
accessories may cause instability which could result in the possibility of injury.

The consumer electronics industry (of which Panasonic is a member) is committed to making home
entertainment enjoyable and safe. To prevent personal injury or death, be sure to follow the following safety
guidelines:
TUNE INTO SAFETY:
•
One size does NOT fit all. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the safe installation and use
of your flat panel display.
•
Carefully read and understand all enclosed instructions for proper use of this product.
•
Don’t allow children to climb on or play with furniture and television sets.
•
Don’t place flat panel displays on furniture that can easily be used as steps, such as a chest of drawers.
•
Remember that children can become excited while watching a program, especially on “larger than life”
flat panel displays. Care should be taken to install the display where it cannot be pushed, pulled over,
or knocked down.
•
Care should be taken to route all cords and cables connected to the flat panel display so that they
cannot be pulled or grabbed by curious children.
WALL MOUNTING: IF YOU DECIDE TO WALL MOUNT YOUR FLAT PANEL DISPLAY, ALWAYS:
•
Use a mount that has been recommended by the display manufacturer and/or listed by an independent
laboratory (such as UL, CSA, ETL).
•
Follow all instructions supplied by the display and wall mount manufacturers.
•
If you have any doubts about your ability to safely install your flat panel display, contact your retailer
about professional installation.
•
Make sure the wall where you are mounting the display is appropriate. Some wall mounts are not
designed to be mounted to walls with steel studs or old cinder block construction. If you are unsure,
contact a professional installer.
•
A minimum of two people are required for installation. Flat panel displays can be heavy.
The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages television viewing for children younger than
two years of age.

WARNING
(View from the side)
Customer assumes liability if mounting the unit themselves or if a Panasonic bracket is not used. Any damage resulting
from not having a professional installer mount your unit will void your warranty.
Always be sure to ask a qualified technician to perform any necessary set-up. Incorrect fitting may cause equipment to
fall, resulting in injury and product damage.
Do not mount the unit directly below ceiling lights (such as spotlights, floodlights or halogen lights) which typically give off
high heat. Doing so may warp or damage plastic cabinet parts.
Take care when fixing wall brackets to the wall. Always ensure that there are no electrical cables or pipes in the wall
before hanging bracket.
When using an angled-type wall hanging bracket, please ensure that there is sufficient space for the connecting cables
so that they do not press against the wall when the TV is tilted forward.
For safety reasons, remove units no longer being used from their wall-mounted locations.
