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. To prevent burn-in, the picture displayed on the
screen is shifted up, down and to the left and right at regular intervals. See page 40
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, we recommend you change the PICTURE
MODE setting to either STANDARD or SOFT. Doing so will reduce the chance of
burn-in and extend the life of the PDP. See "PICTURE MODE" on page 26.
Do not display static images or characters for long periods of time.
· Reduce CONTRAST and BRIGHT on the PICTURE menu (page 26) 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 MULTI-PICTURE function (page 17).
If Burn-in has occurred
If burn-in occurs, try the REFRESH function (page 34). If burn-in is minimal it may gradually become
less noticeable.
Note: Once burn-in occurs it will never disappear completely.

Failure to take the following precautions may result in damage to the TV or

able to get out.)
DO NOT place anything on top of the TV.
(such as cosmetics or medicines, flower vases, potted plants, cups, etc.)
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.)

A picture split in two (PICTURE MANAGEMENT turned on and PICTURE MANAGEMENT
turned off) will appear on the screen.
To quit the PICTURE MANAGEMENT demonstration:

Pixel defects
PDPs use collections of fine dots ("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
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 hard.
Never use any cleaner or detergent on it.
In the event of a fault, unplug the unit and call a service technician. Do not attempt to repair it
yourself or remove the rear cover.
