WELCOME
Dear Panasonic Customer,
Welcome to the Panasonic family of customers.
We hope that you have many years of enjoyment from your new digital LCD television. This is a very
advanced television; however, the Quick Start Guide will allow you to use the TV as quickly as
possible. You can then read the instructions completely and retain them for future reference.
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 DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) decoder. This allows you to enjoy the new era
of digital terrestrial television, including future interactive services, without the need for a ‘set top box’
or satellite dish --- your current roof or loft mounted antenna is all you need.
DVB is a trademark of the DVB Digital Video Broadcasting Project (1991 to 1996).

informed of any updates.
Signal
Condition
The signal condition function displays indications of both signal quality and signal
strength for each DVB programme position.
The DVB system requires that the signal condition is of good quality 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 condition 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, and the AV1 socket of the television and the appropriate socket on your 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 7.
2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu, see page 21.
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) (Not available with HDMI)
This will allow the immediate recording of the programme currently shown on the television, by the recording
device attached to the Scart socket, which can be chosen using “Q ---Link select”. (see page13).
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 scart socket selected using “Q ---Link select“. (see page 13).
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 carry 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 scart socket selected using
“Q ---Link select“. (see page13).
If Q--Link is inoperative, first confirm that your Scart cable is a “fully wired” type. Ask your dealer for further details.

TELETEXT OPERATION (DVB Mode)
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.
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 Condition
feature (see page 35).
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.
