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 LCD TV
offers.
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.
DVB is a trademark of the DVB Digital Video Broadcasting Project (1991 to 1996).

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.
FOR YOUR SAFETY PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TEXT CAREFULLY
This appliance is supplied with a fitted three pin mains plug for your safety and convenience. A 5 amp fuse is fitted in
this plug. If the fuse is replaced then the replacement fuse must be 5 amp rated and should be approved by ASTA or

For an external recording device to record DVB programmes, the integrated DVB system must be active to provide the
signal. The Timer programming menu allows you to choose programmes that you wish to record. At the correct time, the
DVB system will switch on and tune to the correct station (even if the TV is in standby mode). If the recording device is
compatible with Q-Link or similar technologies (see page 32) and connected to the TV’s AV2 / AV4 terminal, you do not
need to program the device – the DVB system will control the recording process.
The device must be connected to the TV’s AV2 / AV4 terminal using a SCART cable to record DVB programmes.

Signal Quality
26
This TV continually scans for updated DVB services
and notifies you of any changes. Set to On to receive
notification. Set to Off if you do not wish to be informed
of any updates.
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 / AV4
terminal of the television and the appropriate terminal on your VCR or DVD Recorder. See page 13 for details of Q-Link
terminal setup. This television does not support any other types of recording control signal.
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 6-8.
2. When Auto setup is started from within the Tuning menu. See page 14.
3. Preset download started from the recording device, refer to the device’s instruction book.
Because a recording device cannot tune to DVB stations, only the analogue programme positions are downloaded to the device.
What You See Is What You Record (DIRECT TV RECORDING)
This will allow the immediate recording of the programme currently shown on the TV, by the recording
device attached to the Scart terminal, which can be chosen using “Q-Link”. See page 13.
MODE
Press the DIRECT TV REC button.
DIRECT
TV REC
OK
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 instruction book.
Recording in progress
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.
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 Tuner 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. Stop the
recording manually.
Additionally, when using a “Q-Link” device the following main features are possible:
The following features are only available from the device connected to the Scart terminal selected using “Q-Link”. 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.
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 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 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.
“WIDE” appears in the top left of
the screen, Panasonic Auto
switches to the appropriate 16:9 or
14:9 widescreen ratio.
The text shown on the screen indicates how Panasonic Auto determined
which ratio to use:
Panasonic Auto switches to the appropriate widescreen ratio.
“Panasonic Auto” appears in the top left of the screen if black stripes
above and below the picture are detected.
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.
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

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.

Channel up / down buttons to select another channel.
As soon as you switch to a DVB channel with links to a teletext service, software is

switching to a DVB channel, you should wait for approximately 5 seconds before pressing
the TEXT button – this will allow the software to download. If you press the TEXT button
before download is complete, there will be a short delay before the text screen is
displayed.
While navigating DVB teletext, you will find there is a short delay when moving between

Normal Sound
Sound reception may have
deteriorated.
Switch NICAM setting (Sound
menu in Analogue only) to
Off until reception improves.
This is a characteristic of liquid
crystal panels and is not a
problem. The liquid crystal panel
is built with very high precision
technology giving you fine
picture details. Occasionally, a
few non-active pixels may
appear on the screen as a fixed
point of blue, green, or red.
Please note this does not affect
the performance of your LCD.
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.

Guide after Auto Setup.

Checks
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.

Prog. type
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
26).
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
