Safety Precautions

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove cover or back.

No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.

The lightning flash with arrowhead within a triangle is intended to tell the user that parts inside the product are a risk of electric shock to persons.

The exclamation point within a triangle is intended to tell the user that important operating and servicing instructions are in the papers with the appliance.

Note to CATV System Installer

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.

This LCD TV should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase unless proper ventilation is provided.

Important Safety Instructions

2) Keep these instructions.

3) Heed all warnings.

4) Follow all instructions.

5) Do not use this apparatus near water.

6) Clean only with dry cloth.

7) Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

8) Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or other apparatus (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

9) Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.

10) Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.

11) Only use attachments / accessories specified by the manufacturer.

12) Use only with the cart, stand, tripod, bracket or table specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the apparatus. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart / apparatus combination to avoid injury from tip-over.

13) Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.

14) Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way, such as power-supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the apparatus, the apparatus has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.

15) Operate only from the type of power source indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of the type of power supplied to your home consult your television dealer or local power company.

16) Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the LCD TV.

17) Never push objects of any kind into this LCD TV through cabinet slots as they may touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquid of any kind on the LCD TV.

18) If an outside antenna is connected to the television equipment, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built up static charges.

In the U.S. Section 810-21 of the National Electrical Code provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the grounding electrode.

Safety Precautions

(Continued)

CEA CHILD SAFETY NOTICES: 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.

The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages television viewing for children younger than two years of age.

This function may not work normally depending on the equipment condition.

The equipment can be operated by other remote controls with this function on even if TV is in Standby mode.

Image or sound may not be available for the first few seconds when the playback starts.

Image or sound may not be available for the first few seconds when Input mode is switched.

Volume function will be displayed when adjusting the volume of the equipment.

If you connect equipment that has “HDAVI Control 2 or later” function to the TV with HDMI cable, the sound from DIGITAL

AUDIO OUT terminal can be output as multi channel surround.

“HDAVI Control 5” is the newest standard (current as of December, 2009) for the HDAVI Control compatible equipment.

This standard is compatible with the conventional HDAVI equipment.

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 the devices.

HDMI-compatible equipment (*1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a set-top 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. 24)

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. 44.

DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminals

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.

Picture mode

Vivid: Provides enhanced picture contrast and sharpness for viewing in a well-lit room.

Standard: Recommended for normal viewing conditions with subdued room lighting.

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. Furthermore, do not leave it for long periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC.

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.)
