Important Installation Notices
Install TV on a stable surface
If a television is not positioned in a sufficiently stable location, it can be potentially hazardous due to falling.
Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by taking simple precautions such as:
Using cabinets or stands recommended by the manufacturer of the television.
Only using furniture that can safely support the television.
Ensuring the television is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
Not placing the television on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring both the
furniture and the television to a suitable support.
Not standing the televisions on cloth or other materials placed between the television and supporting furniture.
Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the television or its controls.
When cleaning the TV, remove the mains plug
Cleaning an energized TV may cause electrical shock.
When the TV is not going to be used for a long period of 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
Allow sufficient space around the TV for radiated heat
Minimum distance
When using the pedestal, keep the space between the bottom of the
TV and the surface where the TV is set.

WARNING!
Failure to use a Panasonic bracket or choosing to mount the TV yourself will be done at the risk of the
consumer.
Any damage resulting from not having a professional installer mount your TV will void your warranty.
Always be sure to ask a qualified technician to carry out set-up.
Incorrect fitting may cause equipment to fall, resulting in injury and product damage.
Do not mount the TV directly below ceiling lights (such as spotlights, floodlights or halogen lights)
which typically give off high heat. Doing so may warp or damage plastic cabinet parts.

WARNING
Always be sure to ask a qualified technician to carry out set-up.
Incorrect fitting may cause equipment to fall, resulting in injury and product damage.
Do not disassemble or modify the pedestal.
Otherwise the TV may fall over and become damaged, and personal injury may result.
Caution
Do not use any other TV and displays.
Otherwise the TV may fall over and become damaged, and personal injury may result.
Do not use the pedestal if it becomes warped or physically damaged.
If you use the pedestal when it is physically damaged, personal injury may result. Contact your
nearest Panasonic Dealer immediately.
During set-up, make sure that all screws are securely tightened.
If sufficient care is not taken to ensure screws are properly tightened during assembly, the pedestal
will not be strong enough to support the TV, and it might fall over and become damaged, and personal
injury may result.
Preventing the TV from falling over
This TV could fall over if it’s pushed, pulled or knocked down.
We therefore recommend the TV is secured to the base as illustrated.
This measure is designed to reduce the risk of injury from a falling TV. However, it cannot guarantee
protection in all cases.

VIERA Link “
Control™”
Enjoy additional HDMI interoperability with Panasonic products which have “HDAVI Control” function.
This TV supports “HDAVI Control 4” function.
Connections to the equipment (DIGA Recorder, HD Video Camera, Player theatre, Amplifier, etc.) with
HDMI cable allow you to interface 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 equipment.

on some programmes, or “No
Signal” message
Check “Signal Condition”. (p. 31) 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” programme to
generate a stable picture. Repeat the tuning procedure
(p. 31). If problem persists consult your local TV aerial
installer.

Check to ensure your area is covered by DVB
transmissions.
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.
