Safety Precautions
Warning
Handling the mains plug and lead
Insert the mains plug fully into the socket outlet. (If the mains plug is loose, it could generate heat and cause fire.)
Ensure that the mains plug is easily accessible.
Ensure the grounding pin on the mains plug is securely connected to prevent electrical shock.
Do not touch the mains plug with a wet hand. (This may cause electrical shock.)
Do not use any mains lead other than that provided with this TV. (This may cause fire or electrical shock.)
Do not damage the mains lead. (A damaged lead may cause fire or electrical shock.)
Do not move the TV with the lead plugged in the socket outlet.
Do not place a heavy object on the lead or place the lead near a high-temperature object.
Do not twist the lead, bend it excessively, or stretch it.
Do not pull on the lead. Hold onto the mains plug body when disconnecting lead.
Do not use a damaged mains plug or socket outlet.
If you find any
abnormality,
remove the
mains plug immediately!
AC 220-240 V
50 / 60 Hz
Do not remove covers
NEVER modify the TV yourself
(High-voltage components may cause serious
electrical shock.)
Have the TV checked, adjusted, or repaired at your
local Panasonic dealer.
Keep liquids away from the TV
To prevent damage which may result in fire or
shock hazard, do not expose this appliance to
dripping or splashing.
Do not place containers with water (flower vase,
cups, cosmetics, etc.) above the TV. (including on
shelves above, etc.)
Do not expose to direct sunlight
and other sources of heat
Avoid exposing the TV to direct sunlight and other
sources of heat. To prevent fire never place any
type of candle or naked flame on top or near the TV.
4
Do not place foreign objects
inside the TV
Do not let metal or flammable objects drop into the
TV through the air vents (fire or electrical shock
may result).
Do not place the TV on sloped
or unstable surfaces
The TV may fall off or tip over.
Use only the dedicated stands
/ mounting equipment
Using an unauthorized stand or other fixtures may
make the TV shaky, risking injury. Be sure to ask
your local Panasonic dealer to perform setup.
Use optional stands / mounts (p. 6).
Do not allow children to
handle SD card
As with a small object, SD card can be swallowed
by young children. Please remove SD card
immediately after use.
Notes
Caution
Do not display a still picture for a long time
When cleaning the TV, remove the
mains plug
(Cleaning an energized TV may cause
electrical shock.)
When TV will not be used for a
long time, remove the mains plug
This TV will still consume some power even
in the Off mode, as long as the mains plug is
still connected to a live socket outlet.
Transport only in upright position
Transporting the TV with its display panel
facing upright or downward may cause
damage to the internal circuitry.
This causes the image to remain on the plasma
screen (“image retention”).
This is not considered a malfunction and is not
covered by the warranty.
Typical still images
Channel number and other logos
Image displayed in 4:3 mode
Video game
Computer image
To prevent image retention, contrast is lowered
automatically after a few minutes if no signals are
sent or no operations are performed. (p. 40)
Auto power standby function
If no signal is received and no operation is
performed in Analogue TV mode for 30 minutes, the
TV will automatically go to standby mode.
Allow sufficient space around the
TV for radiated heat

Problem
•
Actions
Digital TV reception technology requires high quality, robust DTV signals which in some domestic aerial
installations, may be relatively poor despite good analogue reception.
•
To maintain optimum signal quality from TV aerial, use a TV aerial splitter
(as illustrated) when connecting two or more equipments to the same aerial.

(Individual aerial)
Check to ensure your area is covered by DVB transmissions.
(www.dba.org.au/)
Check that the aerial and antenna cable are designed for DVB.
For your safety, the aerial and cable should be inspected / installed by a
licenced installer that should comply with Australian Standard AS1417.1.
Note: If you live within 5-10 Km of DVB transmission towers, a
combined VHF / UHF aerial should be adequate. Outside this area,
separate VHF and UHF aerials provide superior reception performance.
If you live in a unit or apartment, check to ensure the Master
Antenna TV (MATV) system is designed for analogue and DVB-T
reception. Please consult your body corporate. (www.dba.org.au/)
Check “Signal Display”. (p. 25)
If “Signal Quality” or “Signal Strength” are displayed in red or
constantly changing, check aerial.
If problem persists consult your local TV aerial installer.
Check that the aerial and antenna cable are designed for DVB.
For your safety, the aerial and cable should be inspected / installed by a
licenced installer that should comply with Australian Standard AS1417.1.
Interference (known as impulse noise) from household appliances
such as light switches, fridges etc may cause picture break up and /
or audio distortion. Use high quality quad shielded coaxial cable fly
lead between TV and antenna wall socket to minimise impulse noise
pickup. If problem persists consult your local TV aerial installer.
When “No Signal” message is displayed check TV aerial connection.
The received signal may be too weak to allow the TV to reliably lock to the
desired “No Signal” channel to generate a stable picture. Repeat the tuning
procedure (p. 24). If problem persists consult your local TV aerial installer.
Electrical atmospheric interference caused by local or distant
lighting storms or heavy rain with wind in “leafy” locations may
cause pictures to break up and audio to mute or distort momentarily.
Impulse noise interference from an infrequently used electrical appliance,
or a passing vehicle or lawn mower with a “noisy” ignition system.
Like your computer, the TV has to run a number of diagnostic and
software checks before it can display any broadcast channels.
Is the TV in Teletext mode? (p. 16)
Is the channel locked? (p. 25)
Off Timer function is activated.
The TV enters “Standby mode” about 30 min. after broadcasting ends.
Are the batteries installed correctly? (p. 6)
Has the TV been switched On?
