Note to CATV System Installer
This reminder is provided to call the CATV
system installer’s attention to Article 820-40 of
the National Electrical Code (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.
Use of this television receiver for other than
private viewing of programs broadcast on UHF
or VHF or transmitted by cable companies for
the use of the general public may require
authorization from the broadcaster/cable
company and/or program owner.
s Reorient or relocate the receiving antennas.
s Increase the separation between the
equipment and receiver.
s Connect the equipment into an outlet on a
circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
s Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/
TV technician for help.
You are cautioned that any changes or
modifications not expressly approved in this
manual could void your authority to operate
this equipment.
Safety
s Operate the TV only on 120 V AC.
s The plug is designed, for safety purposes, to
fit into the wall outlet only one way. If you
are unable to insert the plug fully into the
outlet, contact your dealer.
s If any liquid or solid object should fall
inside the cabinet, unplug the TV
immediately and have it checked by

Important Notice
s When used at an altitude of greater than
1,900m or 6,248feet (air pressure less than
800hPa), this Plasma Display Panel may
generate a low buzzing sound as a result of
the difference between the interior and
exterior air pressure of the panels. This is
not considered a defect and is not covered
under by the Limited Warranty.
CAUTION
How to reduce the risk of “Image Retention”
on your TV
When using TV games, computers, and
similar products with your TV, or viewing a
TV station whose logo always stays on the
screen, keep the brightness and contrast
functions at low settings.
Bright, stationary images such as TV station
logos displayed on your TV can cause
permanent damage to your TV, resulting in
retention of the image in the picture. Please
take the following steps to reduce the risk of
causing image retention:
View a variety of program sources or
programming material.
Image retention can occur when bright
stationary images such as TV station logos
are viewed. Changing the program material
viewed reduces the possibility that a single
image will become imprinted on the picture
tubes in your TV.
When viewing programs with stationary
images, adjust the picture setting to reduce
the “Picture” and “Brightness” levels. Image
retention is accelerated by higher
“Brightness” and higher “Picture” settings.
Please see page 59 for instructions on
adjusting picture settings.
This will help you reduce the risk of causing
image retention.
IMAGE RETENTION IS NOT COVERED
BY YOUR WARRANTY

Notes on the Wide Screen Mode
To change from one Wide Screen Mode to another, use the
WIDE button on the remote control.
• The Wide Screen Mode function of this TV allows for various
display options: select the appropriate Wide Screen Mode for
the original aspect ratio of the picture you are watching.
• If you change the screen size using the Wide Screen Mode
feature with the TV installed in a public space for commercial
use or public purpose, it might be an infringement of
copyright.
• If you select “Wide Zoom” when watching the picture with
4:3 aspect ratio, part of the picture is transformed. You can
watch the picture with its original aspect ratio in “Normal”
mode.
• The upper and lower parts of the picture may not appear in the
screen according to the size of the original picture. In this
case, adjust the picture position (see pages 57, 58).
Notes
• The 4:3 Default functions only when the TV receives 480i or
480p signals.
• If “4:3 Default” is set to anything but “Off,” the Wide Screen
Mode setting changes only for the current channel.
When you change channels (or inputs), the Wide Screen Mode
is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting.
To retain the current Wide Screen Mode setting as channels
and inputs are changed, set “4:3 Default” to “Off.”
