• Emergency Bulletins (Such as EAS messages, weather warnings and others)
• Locally originated programming • News • Political • Public Service Announcements • Religious • Sports • Weather
Maintenance
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, lint-free cloth.
If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent 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 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.
•
•
•
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 neutral detergent 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.)

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. 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”.
This HDMI connector is “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”, “S VIDEO”, or
“VIDEO” to receive analog signals.
The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p.
Match the output setting of the digital device.
For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 57.
