Important Installation Notices
If a television is not positioned in a sufficiently stable location, it can be potentially hazardous due to
falling. Many injuries, particularly to children, can be avoided by taking simple precautions such as:
• Using cabinets or stands recommended by the manufacturer of the television.
• Only using furniture that can safely support the television.
• Ensuring the television is not overhanging the edge of the supporting furniture.
• Not placing the television on tall furniture (for example, cupboards or bookcases) without anchoring
both the furniture and the television to a suitable support.
• Not standing the television on cloth or other materials placed between the television and supporting furniture.
• Educating children about the dangers of climbing on furniture to reach the television or its controls.
When cleaning the TV, remove the mains plug
• Cleaning an energised TV may cause electrical shock.
When the TV is not going to be used for a long period of time, remove the mains plug
• This TV will still consume some power even in the Off mode, as long as the mains plug is still
connected to a live socket outlet.

Viewing 3D images
You can enjoy viewing 3D images with contents or programmes corresponding to the 3D effect by
wearing the 3D Eyewear “Optional accessories” (p. 9)
• For wearing the 3D Eyewear please read the manual of the 3D Eyewear.
This TV supports [Frame Sequential]∗1, [Side by Side]∗2 and [Top and Bottom]∗3 3D formats.
∗1: The 3D format that the images for the left and right eyes are recorded with the high definition quality
and alternately played back
∗2, ∗3: Other available 3D formats
Caution
About 3D Eyewear
• Do not drop, exert pressure on, or step on the 3D Eyewear.
Doing so may damage the glass section, which may result in injury.
• Always store the 3D Eyewear in the case provided when not in use.
• Be careful of the tips of the frame when putting on the 3D Eyewear.
Accidentally inserting the tip of the frame into the eye may cause injury.
• Always keep the 3D Eyewear in a cool, dry place.
Failure to do so may cause fire or electric shock.
• Be careful not to trap a finger in the hinge section of the 3D Eyewear.
Doing so may result in injury.
• Pay special attention when children are using this product.
About Viewing of 3D Images
• In the event that you experience dizziness, nausea, or other discomfort while viewing 3D
images, discontinue use and rest your eyes.
When you set the effect by using [3D Adjustment], take into account that the vision of 3D images
varies among different individuals.
• Do not use the 3D Eyewear if you have a history of oversensitivity to light, heart problems, or
have any other existing medical condition.
Using the 3D Eyewear may cause the symptoms to worsen.
• Stop using the 3D Eyewear immediately if you feel tired, discomfort, or any other abnormality.
Continuing to use the 3D Eyewear in such cases may cause you to feel unwell. Please take the
necessary rest before continuing use.
• When watching 3D movies, take an appropriate length break after watching a movie.
• When watching 3D content on interactive devices such as 3D games or computers, take an
appropriate length break after using for 30 - 60 minutes.
Prolonged use may cause eyesight fatigue.
• When using the 3D Eyewear, be careful not to strike the television screen or other people by
mistake.
As the images are in 3D, the distance between the user and screen may be mistaken, causing the
user to strike the screen which may result in injury.
• Use the 3D Eyewear when viewing 3D images.
• When using the 3D Eyewear, make sure your eyes are on an approximately horizontal level.
• If you suffer from myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism, or
have eyesight differences between the left and right eyes, please use corrective glasses or
other such methods to correct your eyesight before putting on the 3D Eyewear.
• Stop using the 3D Eyewear if you can clearly see double images when viewing 3D content.
Prolonged use may cause eyesight fatigue.
• View the screen at a distance at least 3 times further than the effective height of the screen.
Recommended distance:

Using 3D Eyewear
• As a guide, 3D Eyewear should not be used by children younger than about 5 - 6 years old.
As it is difficult to judge younger children’s reactions to fatigue or discomfort, it may be difficult to
prevent them from suddenly feeling unwell.
• When this product is being used by a child, the parent or guardian should check to ensure that the
child’s eyes are not becoming tired.
• When using the 3D Eyewear, do not place breakable objects near to the user.
The user may mistake the 3D objects they are viewing as real objects causing them to move, which
may cause damage to surrounding objects that may lead to injury.
• Do not move around while wearing the 3D Eyewear.
The surrounding area appears dark, which may result in falling or other accidents that may cause
injury.
• Only use the 3D Eyewear for the specified purpose.
• Do not use if the 3D Eyewear is cracked or broken.
Doing so may result in injury or eyesight fatigue.
• If a malfunction or fault occurs in the 3D Eyewear, stop use immediately.
Continuing to use the 3D Eyewear may result in injury, eyesight fatigue, or may cause you to feel
unwell.
• Stop using the 3D Eyewear immediately if your skin feels unusual.
In rare cases, the paint or materials used in the 3D Eyewear may cause an allergic reaction.
• Stop using the 3D Eyewear immediately if you experience any redness, pain, or itching on the
nose or temples.
Prolonged use may cause such symptoms due to excess pressure, which may result in the user
feeling unwell.
Using Precautions
Infra-red receiver section
• Do not soil the infra-red receiver section or attach stickers etc. to it.
• Doing so may prevent the receiver from receiving signals from the television, which may prevent the
3D Eyewear from operating normally.
• If the 3D Eyewear is affected by other infra-red data communication equipment, the 3D images
may not be displayed correctly.
Cautions during viewing
• Do not use devices that emit strong electromagnetic waves (such as cellular phones or personal
transceivers) near the 3D Eyewear. Doing so may cause the 3D Eyewear to malfunction.
• If the 3D Eyewear is used in a room in which fluorescent lights (50 Hz) are used, the light within
the room may appear to be flickering. In this case, either darken or switch off the fluorescent
lights when using the 3D Eyewear.
• Wear the 3D Eyewear correctly. 3D images will not be correctly visible if the 3D Eyewear is worn
upside down or back-to-front.
• Other kinds of displays (such as computer screens, digital clocks, or calculators etc.) may
be difficult to see while wearing the 3D Eyewear. Do not wear the 3D Eyewear when watching
anything other than 3D images.

Maintenance
First, remove the mains plug from the socket outlet.
Display panel, Cabinet, Pedestal
For regular care:
Gently wipe the surface of the display panel, cabinet, or pedestal by using a soft cloth to clean the dirt
or fingerprints.
For stubborn dirt:
Dampen a soft cloth with clean water or diluted neutral detergent (1 part detergent to 100 parts water).
Then wring the cloth and wipe the surface. Finally, wipe away all the moisture.
Caution
• Do not use a hard cloth or rub the surface too hard. This may cause scratches on the surface.
• Take care not to subject the TV’s surfaces to water or detergent. Liquid inside the TV could lead to
product failure.
• Take care not to subject the surfaces to insect repellent, solvent, thinner, or other volatile substances.
This may degrade surface quality or cause peeling of the paint.
• The surface of the display panel is specially treated and may be easily damaged. Take care not to tap
or scratch the surface with your fingernail or other hard objects.
• Do not allow the cabinet and pedestal to make contact with a rubber or PVC substance for a long
time. This may degrade surface quality.
Mains plug
Maintenance
Wipe the mains plug with a dry cloth at regular intervals. Moisture and dust may lead to fire or electrical
shock.

Pixel Statement
• An image on a LCD or Plasma TV screen is
created by many small groups of dots known
as pixels (which is similar to the image in a
newspaper). It also naturally follows that higher
panel resolutions contain more pixels. To create
a colour image, each pixel consists of three tiny
coloured dots (known as sub-pixels), one each
of red, green and blue. Each one of these dots is
precisely controlled by the electronics of the TV to
produce the picture. Whilst Panasonic maintains
the highest standards in manufacturing technology
and processes in the construction of these panels,
there are a number of allowable pixel/subpixel
failures that still allow the panel to be defined
as a good panel. It is not possible to guarantee
absolutely no pixel loss.

Note: Digital TV reception is only as good as the antenna and the antenna cabling delivering the
DTV signals to the television. Reliable digital TV reception requires high quality, robust DTV signals
which can only be achieved when using a TV antenna and cabling designed for digital TV reception.
• Further reading please visit: http://www.digitalready.gov.au/publications.aspx where you can
download ‘The Digital TV Antenna Systems for Homes Handbook’ information pdf file.
• For your safety, the antenna and cabling should be inspected / installed by a licensed installer
that should comply with Australian Standard AS1417.1 for Domestic installations or AS1367 for
MATV installations.
• To maintain optimum antenna signal quality, use an ‘F’ type TV signal
splitter (as illustrated) when connecting two or more devices to the
same antenna socket.

• Check to ensure your area is covered by DTV transmissions.
• Check that the aerial and antenna cable are designed for DTV reception.
If you live within 5-10 km of DTV transmission towers, a combined VHF
/ UHF Digital TV aerial should be adequate. Outside this area, separate
VHF and UHF aerials provide superior reception performance.
• If you live in a unit or apartment, check to ensure the Master Antenna
TV (MATV) system is designed for analogue and DTV reception.
Please consult your body corporate.
• Electrical interference caused by local or distant lighting storms,
heavy rain, high wind etc. may cause picture to break up and or
audio to mute / distort momentarily.

• The received signal may be too weak to allow the TV to reliably lock
to the selected channel to generate a viewable picture. If problem
persists, consult your local TV aerial installer.
• Interference from household appliances (known as impulse noise)
such as light switches, fridges etc. may cause picture break up and
/ or audio distortion. Use high quality quad shielded coaxial cable
(RG6Q) fly lead between TV and antenna wall socket to minimise
impulse noise pickup. If problem persists, consult your local TV aerial
installer.
• Antenna installation may be using an aerial amplifier that is faulty or
an older style aerial amplifier that was not designed for digital TV.
• Older style antenna cabling, loose fitting / corroded wall socket

• Has the 3D Eyewear been switched On?
• Ensure that [3D Mode Selection] is set to [3D]. (p. 29)
• Some 3D image signals may not be automatically recognized as
3D images. Set [3D Mode Selection (Manual)] to match the picture
format. (p. 29)
• Check that there are no obstacles between the infrared sensors on
the TV and the 3D Eyewear. If the 3D Eyewear stops receiving the
