Warnings and Precautions
• This TV set is designed to operate on AC 220-240 V,
50 / 60 Hz.
• To prevent damage which might result in electric shock
or fire, do not expose this TV set to rain or excessive
moisture. This TV must not be exposed to dripping or
splashing water and objects filled with liquid, such as
vases, must not be placed on top of or above the TV.
• WARNING : HIGH VOLTAGE!!!
Do not remove the rear cover as live parts are
accessible when it is removed. There are no user
serviceable parts inside.
• TV Games / Home Computers
Extended use of TV games or home computers with
any television set can cause a permanent ‘shadow’
on the screen. This type of irreversible LCD panel
damage, can be limited by observing the following
points:
• The On / Off switch on this model does not fully
disconnect the TV from the mains supply. Remove the
mains plug from the wall socket before connecting or
disconnecting any leads, or if the TV set is not used
for a prolonged period of time.
Note:
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
the TV is in AV mode.
• Cabinet and LCD panel care
Remove the mains plug from the wall socket. The
cabinet and LCD panel can be cleaned with a soft cloth
moistened with mild detergent and water. Do not use
solutions containing benzol or petroleum.
• When ambient temperature is cool, the picture may
take a short time to reach normal brightness, but this
is not a malfunction. (After brief moment, the picture
will have normal brightness.)
• Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent failure of
electrical components, we recommend that a gap of
at least 10 cm is left all around this television receiver
even when it is placed inside a cabinet or between
shelves.
• Avoid exposing the TV set 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 set.
• Reduce the brightness and contrast levels to a minimum
viewing level.
• 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 LCD TV screen.
• Examples of still pictures include logos, video games,
computer images, teletext and images displayed in 4:3
mode.
• This type of LCD panel damage, is not an operating
defect, and as such is not covered by the Panasonic
warranty.

Q-Link
Q-Link allows the television to communicate with a compatible VCR or DVD Recorder.
For Q-Link communication to work, the TV must be connected to a recording device with the “Q-Link”, “NEXTVIEWLINK”,
“DATA LOGIC”, “Easy Link”, “Megalogic” or “SMARTLINK” logo using a “fully wired” Scart cable between the AV2 / AV4
terminal of the television and the appropriate terminal on your VCR or DVD Recorder.
For connection to the appropriate Scart terminal on the recording device, refer to the device’s instruction book.
When using a “NEXTVIEWLINK” device the main features possible are the following :
Preset Download
This allows the programme order from the TV to be downloaded to the recording device, helping to ensure that correct
recordings are made; there are several ways to perform this operation :
1. During installation as explained in the “Quick Start Guide” on page 5, 6.
2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu. See page 12.
3. Preset download started from the recording device, refer to the device’s instruction book.
Important Note:
Not all recording devices support this type of data communication system. Some may support certain features, but not
others. Refer to the recording device’s instruction book.
If Q-Link is inoperative, first confirm that your Scart cable is a “fully wired” type. Ask your dealer for further details.
What You See Is What You Record (DIRECT TV RECORDING)
This will allow the immediate recording of the programme currently shown on the TV, by the recording

Press the DIRECT TV REC button.
DIRECT TV REC
If the recording device is in Standby mode with usable recording media inserted, it will automatically
switch on when you press the DIRECT TV REC button.
If a “Q-Link” device is connected, a message will appear on the TV screen showing what is being
recorded, or if it is not possible to record. Some “Q-Link” compatible devices will only display the
message when on the VCR programme position(0) or in AV mode. Refer to the device’s instruction
book.
Recording in progress
The recording device is recording the programme signal
from its own tuner. If you wish you can switch off the TV
and leave the device recording in the normal way.

Additionally, when using a “Q-Link” device the main features possible are the following :
The following features are only available from the device connected to the Scart terminal selected using “Q-Link”. See
page 11.
TV / Recording device Auto Power On
If you insert pre-recorded media into the recording device and press the Play button whilst the TV is in Standby mode, the
TV will automatically switch on and select the correct AV input so that you can view the content.
Recording device Auto Power Standby
When the TV is switched into Standby mode, the recording device will also switch into Standby mode if there is no media
inserted, or if there is media inserted and the device is in Rewind or Stop mode. If a VCR is rewinding a tape, it will not
switch into Standby mode until rewinding has finished.
Recording device Image View On
If the TV is in Standby mode and the recording device sends a menu to be displayed on the TV screen (e.g., Main menu),
the TV will automatically switch On and the menu will be displayed.
Some other devices may support this feature. Refer to the device’s instruction book.
This TV will also communicate with other recording device’s that bear the following logos :
• “DATA LOGIC” (a trademark of Metz Corporation) • “Megalogic” (a trademark of Grundig Corporation)
• “Easy Link” (a trademark of Philips Corporation)
• “SMARTLINK” (a trademark of Sony Corporation)
Important Note:
These recording devices may support some or all of the above functions.
Not all recording devices support this type of data communication system. Somemay support certain features, but not
others. Refer to the device’s instruction book. Some features are only available from the device connected to the Scart
terminal selected using “Q-Link”. See page 11.
If Q-Link is inoperative, first confirm that your Scart cable is a “fully wired” type. Ask your dealer for further details.

WIDE
Panasonic Auto determines the best aspect ratio to use to fill your screen.
It does this using a four step process to determine if the picture being
viewed is a widescreen picture.
If Panasonic Auto detects a widescreen signal it switches into the
appropriate widescreen mode. If Panasonic Auto does not detect a
widescreen signal then this advanced TV set enhances the picture for
optimum viewing pleasure.
“WIDE” appears in the top left of
the screen, Panasonic Auto
switches to the appropriate 16:9 or
14:9 widescreen ratio.
The text shown on the screen indicates how Panasonic Auto determined
which ratio to use:
“WIDE” appears in the top left of the screen if a widescreen identification
signal (WSS) is found or a signal found through a Scart terminal.
Panasonic Auto switches to the appropriate widescreen ratio.
“Panasonic Auto” appears in the top left of the screen if black stripes
above and below the picture are detected.
Panasonic Auto chooses the best ratio and expands the picture to fill
the screen. This process can take several minutes, depending on the
darkness of the picture.
You may prefer to manually select one of the other aspect options available
to view the picture.
Notes:
• If, in Panasonic Auto mode, you experience problems with the screen
display size when playing back widescreen format recordings from your
VCR then it is possible that the tracking control of your VCR requires
adjustment (your VCR instruction book will contain adjustment details).
• The widescreen aspect ratios of different films and programmes can
vary.
If these are wider than a standard 16:9 aspect picture then a black
band may be visible at the top and bottom of the screen.
