Dear Panasonic Customer
Welcome to the Panasonic family of customers. We hope that you will have many
years of enjoyment from your new colour television set.
To obtain maximum benefit from your set, please read these Instructions
before making any adjustments, and retain them for future reference.
Retain your purchase receipt also, and note down the Model Number and
Serial Number of your set in the space provided on the rear cover of these
Instructions.
Important Information
(1) The long time (max. 2 hours) use of TV game on the set is not recommended since the signal from
TV game may be the cause of damage on picture projection tubes on the set.
(2) 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 Projection TV screen.
Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images
displayed in 16 : 9 mode.
If still picture cannot be avoided, reduce the brightness and contrast levels of the picture to minimize
any damage that might occur.
(3) In order to minimize any damage to the projection tubes, this set uses the PICTURE SHIFT
function (Refer to page 46) to change (shift) the entire picture approximately 4 mm every 30
minutes.
