Safety Precautions
Notes
Warning
Caution
When cleaning the TV unit, remove the
mains plug
Handling the mains plug and lead
Insert the mains plug fully into the socket outlet. (If the mains plug is loose, it could generate heat and cause fire.)
Ensure that the mains plug is easily accessible.
Ensure the grounding pin on the mains plug is securely connected to prevent electrical shock.
An apparatus with CLASS I construction shall be connected to a mains socket outlet with a protective earthing connection.
Do not touch the mains plug with a wet hand. (This may cause electrical shock.)
Do not damage the mains lead. (A damaged lead may cause fire or electrical shock.)
Do not move the TV with the lead plugged in the socket outlet.
Do not place a heavy object on the lead or place the lead near a high-temperature object.
Do not twist the lead, bend it excessively, or stretch it.
Do not pull on the lead. Hold onto the mains plug body when disconnecting lead.
Do not use a damaged mains plug or socket outlet.
(Cleaning an energized unit may cause electrical shock.)
When TV will not be used for a long
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.
Allow sufficient space around the unit
for radiated heat
Remember not to keep still pictures on
the screen for extended lengths of time
Such still pictures cause after-images on the plasma
screen if they are displayed for a long time. These
after-images are not considered malfunctions and are
not covered by the warranty.

The optimum size and aspect can be chosen, and you can enjoy finer images. (p. 11)
Auto aspect: Auto aspect 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 Auto aspect detects a widescreen signal it switches into the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 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 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. Auto aspect switches to the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen ratio. This function
will also work in any aspect mode. "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 fill the screen. This
process can take several minutes, depending on the darkness of the picture.

Technical Information
HDMI connection
SCART and S-video terminal information
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound
by connecting the TV unit and the equipment.
HDMI-compatible equipment (∗1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a set top box or a DVD player, can
be connected to the HDMI terminal using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
HDMI is the world's first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.
If the external equipment has only a DVI output, connect to the HDMI1 terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter cable (∗2).
When the DVI to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal.
Audio settings can be made on the "HDMI1 input" menu screen. (p. 16)
Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (2ch L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz

(∗1): The HDMI logo is displayed on an HDMI-compliant equipment.
(∗2): Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.
Note
HDMI2 terminal is for digital signal only.
Use with a PC is not assumed.
The 720p/1080i signals will be reformatted before being displayed on the screen.
If the connected equipment has an aspect adjustment function, set the aspect ratio to "16:9".
These HDMI connectors are "type A".
An equipment having no digital output terminal may be connected to the input terminal of either "Component", "SVIDEO", or "Video" to receive analogue signals.
The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals:
480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p and 1080i. Match the output setting of the digital equipment.
For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 35.
PC connection
A PC may be connected to this TV unit so that the PC screen is displayed and sound is heard from the TV.
PC signals that can be inputted: Horizontal scanning frequency 31 to 69 kHz; vertical scanning frequency
59 to 86 Hz (more than 1,024 signal lines could result in incorrect display of the image).
A PC adapter is not necessary for the DOS/V-compliant D-sub 15-pin connector.
