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
●Transporting the TV with its display panel facing upward or downward may cause damage to the internal circuitry.
Allow sufficient space around the TV for radiated heat
Minimum distance
●When using the pedestal, keep the space between the bottom of the
10
10
10
TV and the surface where the TV is set.
●In case of using Wall-hanging bracket, follow the manual of it.
7
(cm)
Do not block the rear air vents
●Blocked ventilation by newspapers, table cloths, curtains, etc. may cause overheating, fire or electrical shock.
Do not expose your ears to excessive volume from the headphones
●Irreversible damage can be caused.
Display panel is made of glass. Do not apply strong force or impact to the display
panel.
●This may cause damage resulting in injury.
The TV is heavy. Handle the TV by 2 or more people. Support as shown to avoid
injury by the TV tipping or falling.
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.
Keep the TV away from these types of equipment
●Electronic equipment
In particular, do not place video equipment near the TV. Electromagnetic interference may distort images / sound.
●Equipment with an infrared sensor
This TV also emits infrared rays. This may affect operation of other equipment.
Do not display a still picture for a long time
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
●Programme 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. 49)

• Thumbnail or still picture in SD Card mode
Pixel Statement
●An image on a LCD or Plasma TV screen is created by
many small groups of dots known as pixels (which is similar
to the image in a newspaper). It also naturally follows that
higher panel resolutions contain more pixels. To create a
colour image, each pixel consists of three tiny coloured
dots (known as sub-pixels), one each of red, green and
blue. Each one of these dots is precisely controlled by the
electronics of the TV to produce the picture.
Whilst Panasonic maintains the highest standards
in manufacturing technology and processes in the
construction of these panels, there are a number of
allowable pixel/subpixel failures that still allow the panel to
be defi ned as a good panel. It is not possible to guarantee
absolutely no pixel loss.

●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.

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.
●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 fl y

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.
