Quick Start Guide
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 while 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 insufficient care is 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.
Ensure that the TV does not fall over.
If the TV is knocked or children climb onto the pedestal with the TV installed, the TV may fall over and personal
injury may result.
Two or more people are required to install and remove the TV.
If two or more people are not present, the TV may be dropped, and personal injury may result.
ŶSecuring the TV
Use the assembly screws
to fasten securely.
Make sure that the screws are securely tightened.

Technical Information
Auto Aspect
The optimum size and aspect can be chosen, and you can enjoy finer images. (p. 15)
Ŷ Auto
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 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 or HDMI terminal. Auto aspect switches to the appropriate 16:9 or 14:9 widescreen ratio. This
function will also work in any aspect mode. “Auto” 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.

The ratio varies depending on the programme, etc. If the ratio is greater than the standard “16:9”, black bands
may appear at the top and bottom of the screen.
If the screen size looks unusual when a widescreen-recorded programme is played back on a VCR, adjust the
tracking of the VCR. (See the VCR manual.)
HDMI connection
HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound
by connecting the TV and the equipment.
HDMI-compatible equipment (1) with an HDMI or DVI output terminal, such as a DVD player, a set top box or a
game equipment, can be connected to the HDMI terminal using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.
About connections, see “External Equipment” (p. 40).

Note
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 / 4 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 (HDMI1: use
COMPONENT-AUDIO terminals / HDMI4: use AV3 audio terminals).
Audio settings can be made on the “HDMI1 / 4 Input” menu screen. (p. 22)
Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (2ch L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz
HDMI2 and HDMI3 terminals are for digital audio signal only.
Use with a PC is not assumed.
If the connected equipment has an aspect adjustment function, set the aspect ratio to “16:9”.
These HDMI connectors are “type A”.
These HDMI connectors are compatible with HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) copyright
protection.
An equipment having no digital output terminal may be connected to the input terminal of either “COMPONENT”,
“S-VIDEO”, or “VIDEO” to receive analogue signals.
The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals:
480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p. Match the output setting of the digital equipment.
For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 44.
This TV incorporates HDMITM (Version 1.3 with Deep Colour, x.v.ColorTM) technology.
(1): The HDMI logo is displayed on HDMI-compliant equipment.
(2): Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.
