Technical Information (Continued)
VIERA LinkTM “HDAVI ControlTM”
HDMI connections to some Panasonic equipment allow you to interface automatically. (p. 28)
This function may not work normally depending on the equipment condition.
The equipment can be operated by other remote controls with this function on even if TV is in Standby mode.
Image or sound may not be available for the first few seconds when the playback starts.
Image or sound may not be available for the first few seconds when Input mode is switched.
Volume function will be displayed when adjusting the volume of the equipment.
If you connect the same kind of equipment at once (for example: one DIGA to HDMI 1 / another DIGA to HDMI 2), VIERA LinkTM
is available for the terminal with the smaller number.
If you connect equipment that has more than “HDAVI Control 2” (or more) function to the TV with HDMI cable, the sound from
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal can be output as multi channel surround.
“HDAVI Control 3” is the newest standard (current as of December, 2007) for the HDAVI Control compatible equipment.
This standard is compatible with the conventional HDAVI equipment.
HDMI connection
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 DVI 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 DVI output, connect to the HDMI terminal via a DVI to HDMI adapter cable (*2).
When the DVI 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”, “HDMI 2 in”, “HDMI 3 in” or “HDMI 4” menu screen. (p. 24)
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.
(*2): Enquire at your local digital equipment retailer shop.
Caution
Use with a PC is not assumed.
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 below.
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminals
You can enjoy your home theater by connecting a Dolby Digital (5.1 channel) decoder and “Multi Channel” amplifier to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminals.
Caution
Depending on your DVD player and DVD-Audio software the copyright protection function may operate and disable optical output.
External speakers cannot be connected directly to PROG OUT terminals.
When an ATSC channel is selected, the output from the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack will be Dolby Digital. When an NTSC
channel is selected, the output will be PCM.
See pages 40-41 for more information

Care and Cleaning
First, unplug the Power cord plug from the wall outlet.
Display panel
The front of the display panel has been specially treated. Wipe the panel surface gently using only a cleaning cloth or a soft, lintfree cloth.
If the surface is particularly dirty, soak a soft, lint-free cloth in diluted mild liquid dish soap (1 part mild liquid dish soap 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.
Cabinet
If the cabinet becomes dirty, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth.
If the cabinet is particularly dirty, soak the cloth in a weak mild liquid dish soap 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 mild liquid dish soap 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.
Pedestal
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 mild liquid dish soap 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.)
