Panasonic and the Environment
REDUCE ~ REUSE ~ RECYCLE
Dear Panasonic Customer
Thank you for choosing to buy a Panasonic colour television. This product was assembled at our Panasonic Television Factory
in Penrith, New South Wales, Australia under our Quality and Environmental Management System. You can therefore be
assured that you have purchased a quality product incorporating environmentally friendly features including low standby power
usage and lead free soldering. Our company is also continuously improving the environmental performance of our product
through the elimination of hazardous chemicals including brominated flame retardants and Chromium 6.
As part of our commitment to conserving natural resources, we recognize that product packaging can be a valuable resource
and if not disposed of properly, contributes the waste stream and or end up in landfill. As part of our commitment to conserving
natural resources we provide the following information about the reuse, recycling and disposal of your packaging.
CARDBOARD
Cardboard comprises the majority of the packaging in your Panasonic TV and all of our cartons are
manufactured with optimum levels of recycled fibre.
1.
Reuse
Cartons can be readily folded and packed flat for storage and made up when required for later use.
2.
Recycling
If you, or someone else has no further use for the carton, it can be flattened or cut up and placed into the recycle bin or
service provided by your local council (applicable for most parts of Australia). By recycling the cardboard you are
benefiting the environment by reducing waste to landfill and reducing the dependence on virgin forest timbers for paper
fibre.
PLASTICS
Panasonic is reducing the number of different plastics used in both the television and its packaging.
Unfortunately you are unable to include the type of plastic used in television packaging in the curbside-recycling program.
Polystyrene foam and other plastic will need to be placed in your general waste bin.

Analogue and Digital television - what are they?
Analogue transmission is the system that has been used for many years for broadcasting television programmes.
With continuous improvements in technology it is now possible to transmit programmes in a digital format, allowing
clearer pictures, more stations and other services to be displayed on screen. Digital television is provided in three
different ways; it can be sent along a cable connection direct to your house, broadcast from a satellite, or broadcast
using traditional land based (terrestrial) transmitters. The first two options require you to have an extra 'set top box'
decoder and in the case of satellite, a receiving dish mounted outdoors.
While allowing you to receive traditional analogue transmissions in the usual way, this television can also receive
terrestrial digital services using an integrated (Digital Video Broadcasting) decoder. This allows you to enjoy the
new era of digital terrestrial television without the need for a 'set top box' or satellite dish - a good quality roof
mounted antenna should be all you need.
Customer’s Record
The serial number of this product can be found on its rear cover and on the carton. It is recommended that you note
the serial number and other details in the space provided and retain this booklet in a safe place as a permanent
record of your purchase to aid in identification in the event of theft or loss.

Pixel Statement (LCD)
An image on an LCD panel is created by many dots known as pixels. The more pixels on the panel, the more
detailed image can be displayed. To create a colour image each pixel is made up of three tiny coloured dots (1 each
of red, green and blue). This gives a total far in excess of one million individual dots manufactured into the panel.
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/Dot failures that would still allow the panel to be defined as a
good panel. It is not possible to guarantee absolutely no pixel loss.

Getting Started
Connecting the Antenna
Connect the television to the antenna wall
plate and a good quality outside / roof
antenna. This television uses an “F”
connector for the RF input. If your wall
plate or antenna lead is the standard
“Belling Lee” connector, use the supplied
“F” to “Belling Lee” adaptor.
75Ohm Coaxial Cable
(RG59 Quad Shield)
Antenna Terminal
“F” Type Connector
Plug the “F” connector firmly into the TV
antenna input and then lock it in place with
the locking nut.
NOTE: Turn the nut only, do not turn the cable.
For your safety any external antenna should be installed by a reputable qualified installer and should comply with
Australian Standard AS1417.1. The RF (Antenna) Input impedance of this television is 75Ω.
Connecting DVD players and VCRs etc
For optimal Digital TV reception, use
an antenna splitter (bottom page
illustration) when also connecting a
VCR / DVD Recorder to the digital TV.
Traditionally, with analogue TV, you will
have connected the antenna to the
VCR and then connected the VCR to
the TV. If your signal strength is
sufficient, this method can be used.
Antenna Terminal
“F” Type Connector
Note: It might require that the VCR or
DVD recorder has to be turned on to
ensure that the signal passes through
to the television.

Signal Quality
This function displays an indication of signal quality for each DVB programme position.
The DVB system requires a good quality signal to provide the best picture. When viewing
analogue pictures, interference such as signal reflection from nearby buildings or
mountains causes ‘ghosting’, but still provides a viewable picture. For the DVB system,
interference such as this can disrupt the flow of data causing the picture to appear to be
made up of large blocks, or to freeze intermittently. If the picture disappears completely,
this could mean that signal quality is very poor. If this happens often, you may need to
improve your antenna system to provide a better signal.

Customer information
Frequently asked questions
Some minor problems can be corrected very quickly and easily without the cost of a service call. Panasonic has a
Customer Care Centre that can answer most questions over the phone. Before you contact the Customer Care
Centre with your question we have included the most commonly asked questions.
If the answer to your problem is not in this list, determine the symptoms and make a few simple checks as shown
on the next page. The location of the nearest service centre can be obtained from the Panasonic Customer Care
Centre on 132600.
Question: Why does the TV take so long to turn on?
Answer:
Like your computer, the TV has to run a number of diagnostic and software checks before it can
display any broadcast channels.
Question: The channel number is still on the screen. How do I turn it off?
Answer:
The channel number is being broadcast by the television station. There is no way to turn this off.
Question: How do I tune my stations?
Answer:
The instructions for tuning the stations are on page 17 for DVB channels and on page 19 for analogue
channels.
Question: Why doesn’t the channel change when I press the channel button?
Answer:
The television might be switched to Teletext mode. If it has been switched to text mode for closed
captions and they are not being transmitted there may not be any indication on the screen to let you
know that you are in Text mode. See page 23.
DVB Questions
Question: Why are there no DVB channels listed in the “Guide” after Auto Setup?
Answer:
Not all areas are covered by DVB transmissions. You may need to point your antenna to another
transmitter.
It could also be caused by poor signal quality. Check analogue channels. If the picture quality is poor
you may need to change or improve your antenna system. Consult a reputable installer.
Question: I get “blocky” interference and sometimes the picture freezes?
Answer:
This could be caused by poor signal quality. To check the quality of your signal use the Signal Quality
feature described on page 14. It is also possible that the interference is coming from the broadcaster.
Question: I have a good antenna system but still cannot receive DVB stations?
Answer:
Not all areas are covered by DVB transmissions. You may need to point your antenna to another
transmitter. See “DTV Reception Trouble Shooting Guide on page 29.
Question: Why does the television not have all the channels?
Answer:
It is possible that the signal level for a channel might have been low for some reason during the tuning
procedure. Repeat the DVB Setup procedure on page 17.

channels.
The signal strength of some of the
RF channels may be too low.
See “DTV Reception Trouble

Change the batteries.
Switch off the light.
Aim the remote control at the TV.
Check the antenna cable connections or if an
upgrade to your antenna is required to
receive digital TV signals in this area.
If ‘signal quality’ or ‘signal strength’ bar is not
green, it indicates that the digital receiver is
not receiving an adequate signal. The
antenna and/or cable system needs to be
checked (maybe replaced) by an antenna
installer.
Check that the antenna is suitable to receive
all RF channels. Try doing channel tuning
installation again.
DTV Reception Trouble Shooting Guide
After a channel scan, some channels or no channels are found
1.
Did you connect your antenna as illustrated pages 6 and 7?
If you have a pay TV box, VCR or other device connected then the TV must be connected to the
antenna using a splitter.
2.
Is the antenna wall socket in good condition?
For optimum and reliable contact performance, the antenna wall connector should be an ‘F’ (screw)
type connector.
3.
Are you using a quality antenna fly lead between antenna wall socket and HD-STB?
The use of RG6 or RG59 Quad Shield 75 ohm coaxial cable fly leads with metal ‘F’ connectors
provides a secure, reliable connection that also greatly reduces impulse noise pickup. Low cost
antenna fly leads with right-angled plastic moulded connectors are a common cause of poor reception
and impulse noise pickup.
Digital TV or some channels (services) may not have yet commenced in your area.
There are some towns and regions in Australia that cannot yet receive digital television. In some towns and
regions not all broadcasters have commenced their digital services. You can check the digital coverage for
your area at the Reception Locator on the DBA website (www.dba.org.au/reception).
29
Customer Information
DTV Reception Trouble Shooting Guide
Signal Strength
The signal received may be too poor to allow the digital receiver to find some or all available channels.
Your old antenna may not be designed to receive all DTV channels.
Antenna reception performance has deteriorated due to weathering, corrosion of antenna connections /
cabling and broken elements.
If you live within 5-10Km of DTV transmission towers, a combined VHF/UHF antenna should be adequate.
Outside this area, separate VHF and UHF antennas provide superior reception performance.
Depending on DTV signal conditions, some installations may instead require a VHF/UHF masthead amplifier.
In a shared antenna system the existing Master Antenna TV (MATV) system may have been originally
designed for analogue PAL TV only, and may require a substantial upgrade or replacement to also carry DTV
signals. Please consult your Body Corporate.
For your safety any external antenna should be installed by a reputable qualified installer and should comply
with Australian Standard AS1417.1.
Some channels display ‘No Signal’ or ‘Loss of Signal’
Received signal is “too weak” (i.e.; poor quality) to generate a stable picture. Please check antenna & cabling
or contact your local TV antenna installer.
There are some towns and regions in Australia that cannot yet receive digital television. In some towns and
regions not all broadcasters have commenced their digital services.
Picture regularly breaks up on some channels
The received signal may be too weak to allow the digital TV receiver to reliably “lock” to the desired signal
and generate a stable picture. Please check antenna & cabling or contact your local TV antenna installer.
Impulse Noise
Interference from household appliances such as fluorescent lights, refrigerators, washing machines, electric
stoves etc may cause pictures to break up and audio to mute or distort momentarily
In the first instance, replace antenna fly-lead with a quality RG6 or RG59 Quad Shield 75 ohm coaxial cable
fly lead. If problem persists, check / improve antenna & cabling or contact your local TV antenna installer. The
possible cause could be poor quality coaxial cable installed in the walls or ceiling picking up impulse noise.
This coaxial cable will need to be replaced with quad shield.
A masthead amplifier may be “over-boosting” the antenna signal, which is overloading the DTV tuner,
