50 Hz.

• To prevent damage which might result in elec tric shock or fi re, do not expose this TV set to rain or excessive moisture. This TV must not be exposed to dripping or splashing water and ob jects fi lled with liq uid, such as vases, must not be placed on top of or above the TV.

• Keep unneeded small parts and other objects out of the reach of small children. These objects can be accidentally swallowed. Also, be careful about packaging materials and plastic sheets.

• Use only the accessories appropriate to handling with fragile products.

• To prevent injury, this apparaturs must be securely attached to the floor/wall in accordance with installation instructions (mounting bracket is not supplied) .

• 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.

Ensure that the mains plug is easily accessible.

• TV Games / Home Computers

Extended use of TV games or home computers with any television set can cause a ‘shadow’ on the screen. This type of LCD panel phenomenon, can be limited by observing the following points:

• Reduce the brightness and contrast levels to a minimum viewing level.

• Do not operate the television set for a continuous period of time while using TV games or home computers.

• 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.

• 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.

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 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 fi re, never place any type of candle or naked fl ame on top or near the TV set.

• Ventilation should not be impleded by covering the ventilation openings with items such as newspapers, table cloths and curtains.

Warnings and Precautions

FOR YOUR SAFETY PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TEXT CAREFULLY

This appliance is supplied with a fi tted three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fi tted in this plug. If the fuse is replaced then the replacement fuse must be 5 amp rated and should be approved by

ASTA or BSI to BS1362.

Check for the ASTA mark

ASA

or the BSI mark on the body of the fuse.

If the fi tted plug has a removable fuse cover you must ensure that it is re fi tted when the fuse is replaced. If you lose the fuse cover the plug must not be used until a replacement cover is obtained. Replacement fuse covers can be purchased through your local Panasonic dealer.

Example 1

The plug fi tted to this appliance incorporates a mains fi lter circuit. If this is removed or replaced with a non– fi ltered plug this television will no longer meet the European standards for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). If the fi tted plug is unsuitable for the socket outlet in your home an appropriate adapter should be used.

Nonetheless, if the fi tted plug is replaced, the fuse should be taken out and the cut- off plug disposed of safely. There is danger of severe electrical shock if the cut off plug is inserted into any 13 amp socket.

If a new plug is to be fi tted please observe the wiring code as shown below.

If in any doubt please consult a quali fi ed electrician.

Example 2

How to replace the fuse (for plug type shown in example 1):

Lift out the removable fuse compartment with a screwdriver and replace the fuse, then re fi t securely into the mains plug (see example 1).

How to replace the fuse (for plug type shown in example 2):

Lift open the fuse compartment, in the mains plug, with a screwdriver, and replace the fuse, then press the fuse cover down securely (see example 2).

IMPORTANT:

– The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code:–

BLUE : NEUTRAL BROWN : LIVE

As the colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond to the markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:–

1. The BLUE wire must be connected to the terminal marked ‘N’ or coloured black.

2. The BROWN wire must be connected to the terminal marked ‘L’ or coloured red.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Under no circumstances should either of these wires be connected to the Earth terminal of the three pin plug, marked with the letter ‘E’ or the earth symbol .

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 AV1 /

AV2 terminal of the television and the appropriate terminal on your VCR or DVD Recorder. See page 13 for details of

Q-Link terminal setup. This television does not support any other types of recording control signal.

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 6 - 8.

2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu. See page 14.

3. Preset download started from the recording device, refer to the device’s instruction book.

OK

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 device attached to the Scart terminal, which can be chosen using “Q-Link”. See page 13.

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 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 fi nished.

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.

This TV will also communicate with other recording device’s that bear the following logos:

• “DATA LOGIC” (a trademark of Metz Corporation)

• “Easy Link” (a trademark of Philips Corporation)

• “Megalogic” (a trademark of Grundig Corporation)

• “SMARTLINK” (a trademark of Sony Corporation)

Important Note:

Some recording devices may not support all or some of the above functions. Refer to the instruction book for the device.

If Q-Link functions do not work, check the connection and ensure that the scart lead is a fully-wired type.

To share tuning information

To ensure correct recordings are made, the television and VCR (DVD/R) should share tuning information - see page 16 .

• Whenever the Auto setup (ATP) function is used, tuning data will be downloaded to the VCR (DVD/R).

To turn off Q-Link communication

If you do not wish to use the Q-Link feature, go to the Setup menu and set the Q-Link option to "Off". See page 13 .

Auto aspect

Auto aspect

determines the best aspect ra tio to use to fi ll your screen. It does this using a four step process to determine if the picture being viewed is a widescreen picture.

If

Auto aspect

detects a widescreen signal it switches into the ap pro pri ate widescreen mode. If

Auto aspect

does not detect a widescreen signal then this advanced TV set enhances the picture for optimum viewing pleasure.

The text shown on the screen indicates how

Auto aspect

de ter mined which ratio to use:

Auto aspect

switches to the appropriate widescreen ratio.

“Auto aspect” appears in the top left of the screen if black stripes above and below the picture are detected.

Auto aspect

chooses the best ratio and expands the picture to fi ll 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 Auto aspect 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 fi lms 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.

• “WIDE” will appear in the top left corner of the screen and picture aspect changes accordingly in any aspect modes, if a widescreen identi fi cation signal

(WSS) is detected or a control signal is found through a Scart terminal.

• Automatic aspect ratio adjustment by WSS signal is not available for progressive and high de fi nition component signals input.
