Maintenance

First, unplug the Power

cord plug from

the wall outlet.

The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth.

@If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent diluted by

100 times the amount of water) and then wring the cloth to remove excess liquid. Use this cloth to wipe the surface of the display panel, then wipe it evenly with a dry cloth of the same type until the surface is dry.

@Do not scratch or hit the surface of the panel with fingernails or other hard objects. Furthermore, avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the surface may be adversely affected.

If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.

@If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in a weak detergent solution and then wring the cloth dry.

Use this cloth to wipe the cabinet and then wipe it dry with a dry cloth.

@Do not allow any detergent to come into direct contact with the surface of the Plasma TV.

If water droplets get inside the unit, operating problems may result.

@Avoid contact with volatile substances such as insect sprays, solvents, and thinner; otherwise, the quality of the cabinet surface may be adversely affected or the coating may peel off. Furthermore, do not leave it for long periods in contact with articles made from rubber or PVC.

@Cleaning

Wipe the surfaces with a soft, dry cloth. If the unit is particularly dirty, clean it using a cloth soaked with water to which a small amount of neutral detergent has been added and then wipe with a dry cloth.

Do not use products such as solvents, thinner, or household wax for cleaning, as they can damage the surface coating. (If using a chemically-treated cloth, follow the instructions supplied with the cloth.)

@Do not attach sticky tape or labels, as they can make the surface of the pedestal dirty. Do not allow long-term contact with rubber, vinyl products, or the like. (Doing so will cause deterioration.)

Technical Information

@ For viewing Closed Caption of digital broadcasting, set the aspect ratio to FULL.

(If viewing with H-FILL JUST, ZOOM or 4:3, characters will be cut off.)

@The Closed Caption is not displayed when you use HDMI connection.

@If analog connected equipment is used for displaying or recording, Closed Caption (CC) should be set On/Off on the connected equipment.

The CC mode setting of the TV will not affect the analog input.

If a digital program is being output in analog format, the CC data will also be output in analog format.

If digital connected equipment is used for input, CC should be set On on either the connected equipment or the TV.

If CC is set On on both the connected equipment and the TV, captions from each unit will overlap.

Lets you choose the aspect depending on the format of the received signal and your preference. (p. 21)

(e.g.: in case of 4:3 image)

@FULL @JUST

I_ 4 _1 1_16 I 1_4 I _16-------_1

HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound by connecting the TV unit and the devices.

HDMI-compatible equipment ('1) with an HDMI or DVl output terminal, such as a set-top box or a DVD player, can be connected to the HDMI connector using an HDMI compliant (fully wired) cable.

÷ HDMI is the world's first complete digital consumer AV interface complying with a non-compression standard.

÷ If the external equipment has only a DVl output, connect to the HDMI terminal via a DVl to HDMI adapter cable (*2).

÷ When the DVl to HDMI adapter cable is used, connect the audio cable to the audio input terminal.

÷ Audio settings can be made on the "HDMI 1 in" or "HDMI 2 in" menu screen. (p. 28)

Applicable audio signal sampling frequencies (L.PCM): 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz

(1): The HDMI logo is displayed on an HDMI-compliant device.

Caution

÷ Use with a PC is not assumed.

(2):

Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.

÷ All signals are reformatted before being displayed on the screen.

÷ If the connected device has an aspect adjustment function, set the aspect ratio to "16:9".

÷ These HDMI connectors are "type A".

÷ These HDMI connectors are compatible with HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) copyright protection.

÷ A device having no digital output terminal may be connected to the input terminal of either "COMPONENT", "S VIDEO", or

"VIDEO" to receive analog signals.

÷ The HDMI input terminal can be used with only the following image signals: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p.

Match the output setting of the digital device.

÷ For details of the applicable HDMI signals, see p. 53.

Do not display a picture in 4:3 mode for an extended period, as this can cause "Image retention" to remain on either or both sides of the display field.

To reduce the risk of such "Image retention", change the brightness of the side bars.

÷ The side bar may flash (alternate black/white) depending on the picture. Using

Cinema mode will reduce such flashing (See below).
