DIGITAL TELEVISION TRANSITION NOTICE
This device contains a digital television tuner, so it should receive digital over the air TV programming, with a suitable
antenna, after the end of full-power analog TV broadcasting in the United States (as required by law) on February 17,
2009. Some older television receivers, if they rely on a TV antenna, will need a TV Converter to receive over the air digital
programming, but should continue to work as before for other purposes (e.g., for watching low-power TV stations still
broadcasting in analog, watching pre-recorded movies, or playing video games). When a Converter is used with an older
television receiver, a signal splitter might be necessary to continue to receive low-power analog broadcasts via an antenna.
For more information, please see www.DTV.gov. For information on the TV Converter program, and on government
coupons that may be used toward the purchase of one, see www.dtv2009.gov, or call the NTIA at 1-888-DTV-2009. Please
check with your cable or satellite service provider if you have questions about your cable or satellite set-top box.

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.

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.)
