VIERA Link Functions
VIERA Link “ HDAVI Control™”
Enjoy additional HDMI interoperability with Panasonic products which have “HDAVI Control” function.
This TV supports “HDAVI Control 5” function.
Connections to equipment with HDMI cable such as a DIGA Recorder, HD Video Camera, Player
theatre, Amplifier, etc., allow you to interface to them automatically.
These features are limited to models incorporating “HDAVI Control” and “VIERA Link”.
• Some functions are not available depending on the equipment’s version of HDAVI Control. Please
confirm the connected equipment’s version of HDAVI Control.
• VIERA Link “HDAVI Control”, based on the control functions provided by HDMI which is an industry
standard known as HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), is a unique function that we have
developed and added. As such, its operation with other manufacturers’ equipment that supports HDMI
CEC cannot be guaranteed.
• Please refer to individual manuals for the external equipment. About applicable Panasonic equipment,
consult your local Panasonic dealer.

Maintenance
First, remove the mains plug from the socket outlet.
Display panel, Cabinet, Pedestal
For regular care:
Gently wipe the surface of the display panel, cabinet, or pedestal by using a soft cloth to clean the dirt
or fingerprints.
For stubborn dirt:
Dampen a soft cloth with clean water or diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent to 100 parts water).
Then wring the cloth and wipe the surface. Finally, wipe away all the moisture.
Caution
• Do not use a hard cloth or rub the surface too hard. This may cause scratches on the surface.
• Take care not to subject the TV’s surfaces to water or detergent. Liquid inside the TV could lead to
product failure.
• Take care not to subject the surfaces to insect repellent, solvent, thinner, or other volatile substances.
This may degrade surface quality or cause peeling of the paint.
• The surface of the display panel is specially treated and may be easily damaged. Take care not to tap
or scratch the surface with your fingernail or other hard objects.
• Do not allow the cabinet and pedestal to make contact with a rubber or PVC substance for a long
time. This may degrade surface quality.
Mains plug
Wipe the mains plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. Moisture and dust may lead to fire or electrical
shock.
