CEA CHILD SAFETY NOTICES
WARNING
Flat panel displays are not always supported on the
proper stands or installed according to the manufacturer’s
recommendations. Flat panel displays that are inappropriately
situated on dressers, bookcases, shelves, desks, speakers,
chests or carts may fall over and may cause personal injury or
even death.
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.
Panasonic recommends that a qualified installer perform
the wall-mount installation. See page 5.
The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages
television viewing for children younger than two years
of age.

WARNING
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 to press against the wall when the TV is tilted forward.
For safety reasons, remove units no longer being used from their wall-mounted locations.

HDMI connection
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound by connecting
the TV unit and HD devices.
HDMI-compatible equipment (*1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a Cable or Satellite box or a DVD player, can be
connected to the HDMI connector using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
HDMI is the world’s first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.
If the external equipment has only a DVI output, connect to the HDMI terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter cable (*2).
When the DVI to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal.
Audio settings can be made on the “HDMI 1 in”, “HDMI 2 in” or “HDMI 3 in” menu screen. (p. 32)
Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz
(*1): The HDMI logo is displayed on an HDMI-compliant device.
(*2): Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.
Caution
Use with a PC is not assumed.
All signals are reformatted before being displayed on the screen.
If the connected device has an aspect adjustment function, set the aspect ratio to “16:9”.
These HDMI connectors are “type A”.
These HDMI connectors are compatible with HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) copyright protection.
A device having no digital output terminal may be connected to the input terminal of either “COMPONENT” or “VIDEO” to
receive analog signals.
The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.
Match the output setting of the digital device.
For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 39.
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal
You can enjoy your Home theater by connecting a Dolby Digital (5.1 channel) decoder and “Multi Channel” amplifier to the
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.
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.

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, lintfree 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 LCD 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.)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
If there is a problem with your TV, please refer to the table below to determine the symptoms, then carry out the
suggested check. If this does not solve the problem, visit the Panasonic web site for further assistance. (see cover)
Questions
Answers
Picture
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. 15). 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.16)
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.10)
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.29)
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. 15, 38)
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,
call 1-877-95VIERA (U.S.A.) or 1-866-330-0014 (Canada).
Why do some small spots on
the screen remain bright or
dark?
The LCD 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 is there no yellow jack
(video input) on the back of the
TV?
The Video input is shared with the Component input. Just
connect the yellow plug into the green jack. Be sure to
connect the red and white audio plugs into the appropriate
red and white audio inputs. (p. 10)
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”, step 3, you indicated that the
“Antenna/Cable in” connector is “not used” (p.13). This is the
proper setting if the TV is connected to a Cable or Satellite
box via any of the other inputs. To re-activate the “ANT/
Cable” input, press MENU, select SETUP and then redo the
First time setup, selecting Cable or Antenna in step 3.
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.
Support Information
Why is the sound unusual,
distorted, low volume or in
another language?

the date of original purchase (“warranty period”), at its option either (a) repair your product with new or refurbished parts,
(b) replace it with a new or a refurbished equivalent value product, or (c) refund your purchase price. The decision to

During the “Labor” warranty period there will be no charge for labor. During the “Parts” warranty period, there will
be no charge for parts.
You must carry-in your product or arrange for on-site service during the Limited warranty period. If non-rechargeable
batteries are included, they are not warranted. This warranty only applies to products purchased and serviced in the
United States or Puerto Rico. This warranty is extended only to the original purchaser of a new product which was not
sold “as is”. A purchase receipt or other proof of the original purchase date is required for warranty service.
On-Site or Carry-in Service
For On-Site or Carry-In Service in the United States and Puerto Rico call 1-877-95-VIERA (1-877-958-4372)
On-site service where applicable requires clear, complete and easy access to the product by the authorized servicer and
does not include removal or re-installation of an installed product. It is possible that certain on-site repairs will not be
completed on-site, but will require that the product or parts of the product, at the servicer’s discretion be removed for shop
diagnosis and/or repair and then returned.
Limited Warranty Limits And Exclusions
This warranty ONLY COVERS failures due to defects in materials or workmanship, and DOES NOT COVER normal
wear and tear or cosmetic damage, nor does it cover markings or retained images on the LCD panel resulting from
viewing fixed images (including, among other things, non-expanded standard 4:3 pictures on wide screen TV’s, or
onscreen data in a stationary and fixed location). The warranty ALSO DOES NOT COVER damages which occurred in
shipment, or failures which are caused by products not supplied by the warrantor, or failures which result from accidents,
misuse, abuse, neglect, bug infestation, mishandling, misapplication, alteration, faulty installation, set-up adjustments,
misadjustment of consumer controls, improper maintenance, power line surge, lightning damage, modification, or
commercial use (such as in a hotel, office, restaurant, or other business), rental use of the product, service by anyone
other than a Factory Service Center or other Authorized Servicer, or damage that is attributable to acts of God.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how
long an implied warranty lasts, so the exclusions may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have others rights which vary from state to state.
If a problem with this product develops during or after the warranty period, you may contact your dealer or
Service Center. If the problem is not handled to your satisfaction, then write to the warrantor’s Consumer Affairs
Department at the addresses listed for the warrantor.
