Warnings and Precautions
• This TV set is designed to operate on AC 220-240 V,
50 / 60 Hz.
• To prevent damage which might result in electric shock
or fire, do not expose this TV set to rain or excessive
moisture. This TV must not be exposed to dripping or
splashing water and objects filled with liquid, such as
vases, must not be placed on top of or above the TV.
• Keep unneeded small parts and other objects out
of the reach of small children. These objects can
be accidentally swallowed. Also, be careful about
packaging materials and plastic sheets.
• WARNING: HIGH VOLTAGE!!!
Do not remove the rear cover as live parts are
accessible when it is removed. There are no user
serviceable parts inside.
Ensure that the mains plug is easily accessible.
• TV Games / Home Computers
Extended use of TV games or home computers with
any television set can cause a ‘shadow’ on the screen.
This type of LCD panel phenomenon, can be limited
by observing the following points:
• Reduce the brightness and contrast levels to a minimum
viewing level.
• 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 LCD TV screen.
• Examples of still pictures include logos, video games,
computer images, teletext and images displayed in 4:3
mode.
• This type of LCD panel damage, is not an operating defect,
and as such is not covered by the Panasonic warranty.
• The On / Off switch on this model does not fully
disconnect the TV from the mains supply. Remove the
mains plug from the wall socket before connecting or
disconnecting any leads, or if the TV set is not used
for a prolonged period of time.
Note:
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 AV mode.
• Cabinet and LCD panel care
Remove the mains plug from the wall socket. The
cabinet and LCD panel can be cleaned with a soft cloth
moistened with mild detergent and water. Do not use
solutions containing benzol or petroleum.
• When ambient temperature is cool, the picture may
take a short time to reach normal brightness, but this
is not a malfunction. (After brief moment, the picture
will have normal brightness.)
• Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent failure of
electrical components, we recommend that a gap of
at least 10 cm is left all around this television receiver
even when it is placed inside a cabinet or between
shelves.
• Avoid exposing the TV set to direct sunlight and other
sources of heat. To prevent fire, never place any type
of candle or naked flame on top or near the TV set.
• Ventilation should not be impleded by covering the
ventilation openings with items such as newspapers,
table cloths and curtains.

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 /
AV4 terminal of the television and the appropriate terminal on your VCR or DVD Recorder.
For connection to the appropriate Scart terminal on the recording device, refer to the device’s 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” on page 5, 6.
2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu. See page 12.
3. Preset download started from the recording device, refer to the device’s instruction book.

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 instruction book.
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 terminal selected using “Q-Link”.
See page 11.
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.
This TV will also communicate with other recording device’s that bear the following logos:
• “DATA LOGIC” (a trademark of Metz Corporation)
• “Megalogic” (a trademark of Grundig Corporation)
• “Easy Link” (a trademark of Philips Corporation)
• “SMARTLINK” (a trademark of Sony Corporation)
Important Note:
Some recording devices may not support all or some of the above functions. Refer to the instruction book for the
device.
If Q-Link functions do not work, check the connection and ensure that the scart lead is a fully-wired type.

Panasonic Auto
Panasonic Auto 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.
WIDE
If Panasonic Auto detects a widescreen signal it switches into the appropriate
widescreen mode. If Panasonic Auto 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 Panasonic Auto determined
which ratio to use:
Panasonic Auto switches to the appropriate widescreen ratio.
If black stripes above and below the picture are detected, aspect ratio changes
automatically.
Panasonic Auto 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.
“WIDE” ap pears in the top left
of the screen, Panasonic Auto
switches to the appropriate 16:9
or 14:9 widescreen ratio.
Panasonic Auto
You may prefer to manually select one of the other aspect options available
to view the picture.
Notes:
• If, in Panasonic Auto mode, you experience problems with the screen display
size when playing back widescreen format recordings from your VCR then
it is possible that the tracking control of your VCR requires adjustment (your
VCR instruction book will contain adjustment details).
• The widescreen aspect ratios of different films and programmes can vary.
If these are wider than a standard 16:9 aspect picture then a black band may
be visible at the top and bottom of the screen.
• “WIDE” will appear in the top left corner of the screen and picture aspect
changes accordingly in any aspect modes, if a widescreen identification signal
(WSS) is detected or a control signal is found through a Scart terminal.
• Automatic aspect ratio adjustment by WSS signal is not available for
progressive and high definition component signals input.
“Panasonic Auto” appears in the
top left of the screen. The best
ratio is chosen and the picture
expanded to fill the screen.
