WELCOME
Dear Panasonic Customer,
We hope that you have many years of enjoyment from your new TV. The Quick Start Guide section at the beginning of this instruction
book will allow you to use the TV as quickly as possible. We recommend that you then read the complete instruction book, and keep it to
refer to as you explore the range of advanced features that this TV offers.
This TV has a low power consumption making it very cost effective to run. Also, when in Standby mode the power consumption is
merely 1,2W. This instruction book is produced using recycled paper.
Analogue and Digital television --- what are they?
Analogue transmission is the system that has been used for many years for broadcasting television programmes. With continuous
improvements in technology it is now possible to transmit programmes in a digital format, allowing clearer pictures, more stations
and other services to be displayed on screen. Digital television is provided in three different ways; it can be sent along a cable
connection direct to your house, broadcast from a satellite, or broadcast using traditional land based (terrestrial) transmitters. The
first two options require you to have an extra ‘set top box’ decoder and in the case of satellite, a receiving dish mounted outdoors.
While allowing you to receive traditional analogue transmissions in the usual way, this television can also receive terrestrial digital
services using an integrated
(Digital Video Broadcasting) decoder. This allows you to enjoy the new era of digital terrestrial
television, including interactive services, without the need for a ‘set top box’ or satellite dish --- an adequate roof or loft mounted
antenna is all you need.

Signal Quality
The signal quality function displays an indication of signal
quality for each DVB programme position.
The DVB system requires a good quality signal to provide
the best picture. When viewing analogue pictures,
interference such as signal reflection from nearby buildings
or mountains causes ‘ghosting’, but still provides a viewable
picture. For the DVB system, interference such as this can
disrupt the flow of data causing the picture to appear to be
made up of large blocks, or to freeze intermittently. If the
picture disappears completely, this could mean that signal
quality is very poor. If this happens often, you may need to
improve your aerial system to provide a better signal.

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 socket of the television
and the appropriate socket on your VCR or DVD Recorder.
For connection to the appropriate Scart socket on the recording device, refer to the device’s operating 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’ beginning on page 6.
2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu, see page 20.
3. Preset download started from the recording device, refer to the device’s operating instruction book.
Because a recording device cannot tune to DVB stations, only the analogue programme positions are downloaded to the device.
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 operating 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 television, by the recording
device attached to the AV2 Scart socket.
Press the DIRECT TV REC button on the remote control.
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 operating instruction book.
Recording in progress
No recording -- Check tape or disc
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.
The tape or disc may have been “write protected”, missing
or may be damaged. The device may already be recording.
Refer to the device’s operating instruction book.
Recording DVB stations
If you press the DIRECT TV REC button while watching a DVB station, the recording device will automatically switch to its AV input to
record the DVB signal from the TV (via the SCART cable), and the DVB programme position will be locked. If you attempt to select
another DVB programme position while recording, you will see the message “DVB programme is locked”. Press the OK button to clear
the message, or the EXIT button to unlock the programme. Beware that if you press EXIT, the DVB programme will be unlocked --switching to another DVB programme will spoil your intended recording.
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 AV2 scart socket.
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 operating instruction book.
This TV will also communicate with other recording device’s that bear the following logos :
D
“DATA LOGIC” (a trademark of Metz Corporation). D
“Easy Link” (a trademark of Philips Corporation).
D
“Megalogic” (a trademark of Grundig Corporation). D
“SMARTLINK” (a trademark of Sony Corporation).
Important Note:
These recording devices may support some or all of the above functions. Refer to the device’s operating instruction book.
Not all recording devices support this type of data communication system. Some may support certain features, but not others. Refer to the
device’s operating instruction book. Some features are only available from the device connected to the AV2 scart socket.
If Q--Link is inoperative, first confirm that your Scart cable is a “fully wired” type. Ask your dealer for further details.

VCR / DVD RECORDER INSTALLATION
Your new TV is supplied with programme position ‘0’ set to receive an RF signal from your VCR or DVD Recorder, although a Scart
connection is preferable if the device is so equipped.
However, if for some reason your VCR or DVD Recorder is tuned to a different RF channel then you will not receive any picture or sound
from your device on programme position ‘0’ of the TV. It will be necessary to either adjust the RF channel of your device (some device’s
allow adjustment of their RF channel via their remote control unit) or to adjust the tuning of the TV’s programme position ‘0’ or both until
it receives the RF output channel of your VCR or DVD Recorder.
It is intended that this advice is used in conjunction with the instruction books for your additional equipment.
Use the AV2 Scart terminal for an S--Video, Q--Link, NEXTVIEWLINK or compatible VCR or DVD Recorder.
To tune your TV to the recording device
Switch on the device, insert and play a pre--recorded tape or disc
with known content.

TELETEXT OPERATION
DVB teletext services
DVB teletext services differ greatly from analogue teletext. When you switch to a DVB teletext service, the images you see can
contain graphics and text, laid out and controlled in a manner decided by the broadcaster. In all cases, it is possible to navigate
the pages using buttons on the remote control, but because the commands available must apply to all manufacturers of DVB
equipment, some on ---screen commands may not correspond exactly to the remote control buttons. For example:
D For the on ---screen command ‘select’ or ‘go’, use the OK button (1).
D If you see the A " B Y symbols, use the appropriate CURSOR keys (2).
D If you see a line of key words displayed in red, green, yellow and blue, use the coloured multifunction buttons (3) to operate
the functions.
D For numbered options, use the numeric keypad (4).
D The TV/TEXT button (5) should allow you to exit the teletext system. Alternatively, press the CHANNEL UP / DOWN buttons
(6) to select another channel.

DVB TROUBLESHOOTING
Some problems will only occur when viewing DVB channels. Due to the different techniques involved in digital reception, DVB signal
quality can be poor even if you appear to have a strong signal when viewing analogue programmes.
The DVB system requires a good quality signal to provide the best picture. When viewing analogue pictures, interference such as signal
reflection from nearby buildings or mountains causes ‘ghosting’, but still provides a viewable picture. For the DVB system, interference
such as this can disrupt the flow of data causing the picture to appear to be made up of large blocks, or to freeze intermittently. If the
picture disappears completely, this could mean that signal quality is very poor. If this happens often, you may need to improve your
aerial system to provide a better signal. This TV contains a complex microprocessor which enables you to view enhanced digital
services. Occasionally this device may need to be reset. This can be done by pressing the standby button on your remote control.
Symptom
Checks
No DVB channels listed in the TV Guide after Auto Setup.
Check that DVB transmissions are available from the transmitter
you are currently using. If not, try directing the aerial at another
local transmitter.
Check analogue transmissions. If picture quality is poor, you will
need to improve or change your aerial system to receive DVB
channels. Consult a local installer.
Blocky interference.
Picture freezes intermittently.
Blocky interference indicates that the signal quality is poor.
You should consider improving your aerial system.
To check the quality of your signal use the Signal Quality
feature (see page 24).
Good quality signal --- indication is green.
Poor quality signal --- indication is red.
I have a good aerial system, but still cannot receive
DVB stations.
If you have tried the previous solutions and are still unable to
receive DVB channels, you may need to provide dedicated
aerial feeds to the TV and other equipment.
This can be implemented using an aerial
splitter or separate aerials.

the time of switch--off will be the setting used when the receiver is
switched on again.
H 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 picture tube damage, can be limited by observing the
following points:
D Reduce the brightness and contrast levels to a minimum
viewing level.
D Do not operate the television set for a continuous period of
time while using TV games or home computers.
D This type of picture tube damage, is not an operating
defect, and as such is not covered by the Panasonic
warranty.
H Sleep Feature (analogue Mode)
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 DVB or
AV modes.
H Screensaver (DVB Mode)
A screensaver can be enabled in DVB mode to help protect this
TV from screen damage.

the appliance was originally marketed, or it may be necessary to have the guarantee repair service executed by the sales company or national distributor in the country where the appliance was
originally marketed. In either case the purchaser must furnish this guarantee and proof of date of purchase. Any necessary transportation, both of the appliance and any spare parts, will be at the
purchasers risk and expense, and there may be a consequent delay in the repair service.
D. When the consumer sends the appliance for repair to the sales company or national distributor in the country of use of the appliance, the service will be provided on the same local terms and
conditions (including the period of guarantee coverage) as prevail for the same model appliance in the country of use, and not the country of initial sale in the EU/EEA or Turkey. Where the consumer
sends the appliance for repair to the sales company or national distributor in the EU/EEA or Turkey where the appliance was originally marketed the repair service will be provided on the local
terms and conditions prevailing in the country of initial sale in the EU/EEA or Turkey.
E. Some product models require adjustment or adaptation for proper performance and safe use in safety or other technical standards imposed or recommended by applicable regulations. For certain
product models the cost of such adjustment or adaptation may be substantial and it may be difficult to satisfy local voltage requirements and safety or other technical standards. It is strongly
recommended that the purchaser investigate these local technical and safety factors before using the appliance in another EU/EEA country or Turkey.
F. The guarantee shall not cover the cost of any adjustments or adaptations to meet local voltage requirements and safety or other technical standards. The sales company or national distributor may
be in a position to make the necessary adjustments or adaptations to certain product models at the cost of the purchaser. However, for technical reasons it is not possible to adjust or adapt all product
models to comply with local voltage requirements and safety or other technical standards. Moreover where adaptations or adjustments are carried out the performance of the appliance may be
affected.
G. If in the opinion of the sales company or national distributor in the country where the appliance is used the purchaser has the necessary adjustments or adaptations to local voltage requirements
and technical or safety standards properly made, any subsequent guarantee repair service will be provided as above indicated, provided the purchaser discloses the nature of the adjustment or
adaptation if relevant to the repair. (It is recommended that the purchaser should not send adapted or adjusted equipment for repair to the sales company or the national distributor in the country
where the appliance was originally marketed if the repair relates in any way to the adaptation or adjustment)
H. This guarantee shall only be valid in territories subject to the laws of the European Union and the EEA, as well as Turkey.
Please keep the guarantee with your receipt.
Caution:
Please ensure that the form is completed at the time of purchase and present it to your dealer with receipt attached for under guarantee service, otherwise your guarantee may be affected.
