fire or electric shock could result.
Disconnect the power supply plug from the wall socket as a safety precaution before carrying out any
cleaning.
• Electric shocks can result if this is not done.
Clean the power cable regularly to prevent it becoming dusty.
• If dust built up on the power supply plug, the resultant humidity can damage the insulation, which could result in
fire.
Pull the power supply plug out from the wall outlet and wipe the mains lead with a dry cloth.
This Plasma TV radiates infrared rays, therefore it may affect other infrared communication equipment.
Install your infrared sensor in a place away from direct or reflected light from your Plasma TV.
Maintenance
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, wipe with a soft, lint-free cloth which has been soaked in pure water or water to
which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added, and 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, otherwise the surface may
become damaged. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents and thinner,
otherwise the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.
If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
• If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been
added 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.

Troubleshooting
CAUTION:
Symptoms
Some parts of the
screen do not light up.
After-images appear
ABCDEF
Check
The plasma TV panel is manufactured using an extremely high level of precision technology,
however, sometimes some parts of the screen may be missing picture elements or have
luminous spots. This is not a malfunction.
Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a
permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma TV.
Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and
images displayed in 4:3 mode.
With no signal present, and without any user operation, the Panasonic screensaver will
appear automatically after a few minutes to prevent image retention.
Note:
The permanent after-image on the Plasma TV resulting from fixed image use is not an
operating defect and as such is not covered by the Warranty.
This product is not designed to display fixed images for extended periods of time.
Sleep Feature
If the set is not switched off when the TV station stops transmitting, it will automatically go to standby mode after 30
minutes. This function will not operate when this TV is in AV mode.
Notes:
• External surfaces of the unit may become hot during operation. But this is completely normal.
• See label on the base of this equipment for ratings and other information.
