Some power cords are supplied with this TV. Use the power cord which best suits the area in which you live, and insert it into a correctly
earthed outlet.
Failure to use the supplied power cord or to insert it into a correctly earthed outlet may result in electric shocks.
To ensure safety in an emergency such as an earthquake, and to prevent accidents, ensure that measures are taken to prevent the TV
dropping or falling over.
· Use the supplied screws to firmly attach the supplied hooks to the back of the TV, and use commercially available cord to fix the TV
to rigid components such as walls and columns.
· Operate only from the power source specified (AC 110 ­ 240 V,
50/60 Hz) on the unit.
· Avoid damaging the AC plug and power cord.
· When you are not using this unit for a long period of time, it is
recommended that you disconnect the power cord from the
main outlet.

A characteristic of Plasma Display Panels (PDPs) is that displaying the same image for a long time causes a part of the image to stay
on the screen (this is called phosphor burn-in).
Avoid burn-in as follows.
Use the PICTURE SHIFT function. In order to prevent burn-in, the picture displayed on the screen is shifted up,
down and to the left and right at regular intervals. Refer to page 28 for details.
· Even if the PICTURE SHIFT function is turned off, the picture may shift to the left or right when the channel or input is changed.
The PICTURE MODE function is initially set to BRIGHT. Unless the TV is being watched in an extremely bright
room, it is recommended to change the PICTURE MODE setting to either STANDARD or SOFT. Doing so will
reduce the chance of PDP burn-in and extend the life of the PDP. See "PICTURE MODE" on page 21.
Do not display static images or characters for long periods of time.
· Reduce CONTRAST and BRIGHT on the PICTURE SETTING menu (page 21) when viewing.
Do not view for long periods of time in the REGULAR mode (page 15).
Screen size is normally chosen to ensure that the picture is displayed on the entire screen. After viewing in the REGULAR mode in
which black bands may occur at the left and right of the screen, it is recommended to change to the PANORAMIC mode to display
the picture on the entire screen.
Do not view for long periods of time using the PIP function (page 16) or MULTI-PICTURE function (page 17).
If Burn-in has occurred
If burn-in occurs, try the REFRESH function (page 28). If burn-in is minimal it may gradually become less noticeable.
Note:Once burn-in occurs it will never disappear completely.

DO NOT allow objects or liquid into the cabinet openings.
(If water or liquid is allowed to enter this equipment, fire or electric shock may be caused.)
DO NOT place any naked flame sources, such as lighted candles, on the TV.

Point defects
PDPs use collections of fine pixels to display images. While there is no problem with more than 99.99% of these pixels, please
understand that a very small number of pixels may not light or may light all the time.
Do not install the TV near electronic equipment that is susceptible to electromagnetic waves
It may cause interference in images, sound, etc. In particular, keep video equipment away from this product.
Effect on infrared devices
There may be interference while using infrared devices such as infrared cordless headphones.
The surface of the TV screen is easily damaged. Be very careful with it when handling the TV.
Should the TV screen become soiled, wipe it with a soft dry cloth. Never rub it forcefully.
Never use any cleaner or detergent on it.
As both sides of speaker panel can be easily scratched, cleaning should be done
carefully. If the speaker panel is dirty, please wipe with a soft cleaning cloth
(such as the cloth used to clean a compact disc).
If there is a fault, unplug the unit and call a service technician. Do not attempt to repair it yourself or remove the rear cover.
