This is the best Plasma Display You Can Buy at That Cost with all the features. Design, Features, Contrast Ratio, Support no of inputs..... Its a good investment with good tech specs. But there is a confusion going around.

Fantastic picture quality and my favourite purchase this year. Why would you bother with an LCD worth a $1000 more when you can have this beauty. I paid $1700 at JB HIFI.

If any foreign objects get inside the Plasma TV, please consult an Authorized Service Center. Do not cover the ventilation holes. Doing so may cause the Plasma TV to overheat, which can cause fire or damage to the Plasma TV. If using the pedestal, leave a space of 3 15/16 (10 cm) or more at the top, left and right, 2 3/8 (6 cm) or more at the bottom, and 2 3/4 (7 cm) or more at the rear. If using some other setting-up method, leave a space of 3 15/16 (10 cm) or more at the top, bottom, left and right, and 3/4 (1.9 cm) or more at the rear. Avoid installing this product near electronic equipment that is readily affected by electromagnetic waves. It may cause interference in image, sound, etc. In particular, keep video equipment away from this product.

AC Power Supply Cord

The Plasma TV is designed to operate on 120 V AC, 50/60 Hz. Securely insert the power cord plug as far as it will go. If the plug is not fully inserted, heat may be generated which could cause fire. If the plug is damaged or the wall socket plate is loose, they should not be used. Do not handle the power cord plug with wet hands. Doing so may cause electric shocks. Do not do anything that might damage the power cable. When disconnecting the power cable, hold the plug, not the cable. Do not make any modifications to, place heavy objects on, place near hot objects, heat, bend, twist or forcefully pull the power cable. Doing so may cause damage to the power cable which can cause fire or electric shock. If damage to the cable is suspected, have it repaired at an Authorized Service Center. If the Plasma TV will not be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

Installation

Receiver Location
This unit is intended to be used with the stand or bracket. Consult your dealer for available options. Position for comfortable viewing. Avoid placing where sunlight or other bright light (including reflections) will fall on the screen. Use of some types of fluorescent lighting can reduce remote control transmitter range. Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent internal component failure. Keep away from areas of excessive heat or moisture.
Optional External Equipment
The Video/Audio connection between components can be made with shielded video and audio cables. For best performance, video cables should utilize 75 ohm coaxial shielded wire. Cables are available from your dealer or electronic supply store. Before you purchase any cables, be sure you know what type of output and input connectors your various components require. Also determine the length of cable you will need.
Remote Control Battery Installation
1. Open the cover. 2. Install the batteries and replace the cover. Note the correct polarity (+ and -). Two AA size

Helpful Hints:

For frequent remote control users, replace old batteries with alkaline batteries for longer life.
Precaution on battery use
Incorrect installation can cause battery leakage and corrosion that will damage the remote control transmitter. Observe the following precautions: 1. Batteries should always be replaced as a pair. Always use new batteries when replacing the old set. 2. Do not combine a used battery with a new one. 3. Do not mix battery types (example: Zinc Carbon with Alkaline). 4. Do not attempt to charge, short-circuit, disassemble, heat or burn used batteries. 5. Battery replacement is necessary when remote control acts sporadically or stops operating the TV set.
Whenever you remove the batteries, you may need to reset the remote control infrared codes. We recommend that you record the code on page 40, prior to setting up the remote control.

Safety Precautions

WARNING
KEEP UNNEEDED SMALL PARTS AND OTHER OBJECTS OUT OF THE REACH OF SMALL CHILDREN. THESE OBJECTS CAN BE ACCIDENTALLY SWALLOWED. ALSO, BE CAREFUL ABOUT PACKAGING MATERIALS AND PLASTIC SHEETS.

Set up

Do not place the Plasma TV on sloped or unstable surfaces. The Plasma TV may fall off or tip over. Do not place any objects on top of the Plasma TV. If water spills onto the Plasma TV or foreign objects get inside it, a short-circuit may occur which could result in fire or electric shock. If any foreign objects get inside the Plasma TV, please consult an Authorized Service Center. Do not cover the ventilation holes. Doing so may cause the Plasma TV to overheat, which can cause fire or damage to the Plasma TV. If using the pedestal, leave a space of 3 15/16 (10 cm) or more at the top, left and right, 2 3/8 (6 cm) or more at the bottom, and 2 3/4 (7 cm) or more at the rear. If using some other setting-up method, leave a space of 3 15/16 (10 cm) or more at the top, bottom, left and right, and 3/4 (1.9 cm) or more at the rear. Avoid installing this product near electronic equipment that is readily affected by electromagnetic waves. It may cause interference in image, sound, etc. In particular, keep video equipment away from this product.

AC Power Supply Cord

The Plasma TV is designed to operate on 120 V AC, 50/60 Hz. Securely insert the power cord plug as far as it will go. If the plug is not fully inserted, heat may be generated which could cause fire. If the plug is damaged or the wall socket plate is loose, they should not be used. Do not handle the power cord plug with wet hands. Doing so may cause electric shocks. Do not do anything that might damage the power cable. When disconnecting the power cable, hold the plug, not the cable. Do not make any modifications to, place heavy objects on, place near hot objects, heat, bend, twist or forcefully pull the power cable. Doing so may cause damage to the power cable which can cause fire or electric shock. If damage to the cable is suspected, have it repaired at an Authorized Service Center. If the Plasma TV will not be used for a long period of time, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

If problems occur during use
If a problem occurs (such as no picture or no sound), or if smoke or an abnormal odor is detected from the Plasma TV, unplug the power cord immediately. Continued use of the TV under these conditions might cause fire or permanent damage to the unit. Have the TV evaluated at an Authorized Service Center. Service to the TV by any unauthorized personnel is strongly discouraged due to its high voltage dangerous nature. If water or foreign objects get inside the Plasma TV, if the Plasma TV is dropped, or if the cabinet becomes damaged, disconnect the power cord plug immediately. A short may occur, which could cause fire. Contact an Authorized Service Center for any repairs that need to be made.
This Plasma TV is for use only with the following optional accessories. Use with any other type of optional accessories may cause instability which could result in the possibility of injury. (All of the following accessories are manufactured by Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd.) Pedestal (included).. TY-ST42PX5W Wall-hanging bracket (Vertical).. TY-WK42PV2W Wall-hanging bracket (Vertical).. TY-WK42PV3U Wall-hanging bracket (Angled).. TY-WK42PR2U Always be sure to ask a qualified technician to carry out set-up.

When using the Plasma TV

Do not bring your hands, face or objects close to the ventilation holes of the Plasma TV. Top of the Plasma TV is usually very hot due to the high temperature of exhaust air being released through the ventilation holes. Burns or personal injuries can happen if any body parts are brought too close. Placing any object near the top of the TV could also result in heat damage to the object as well as to the TV if its ventilation holes are blocked. Be sure to disconnect all cables before moving the Plasma TV. Moving the TV with its cables attached might damage the cables which, in turn, can cause fire or electric shock. Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet as a safety precaution before carrying out any cleaning. Electric shocks can result if this is not done. Clean the power cable regularly to prevent it from becoming dusty. Built-up dust on the power cord plug can increase humidity which might damage the insulation and cause fire. Unplug the cord from the wall outlet and clean it with a dry cloth. This Plasma TV radiates infrared rays; therefore, it may affect other infrared communication equipment. Install your infrared sensor in a place away from direct or reflected light from your Plasma TV.

Cleaning and maintenance

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 a weak detergent solution 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. Note: Do not allow a still picture to be displayed for an extended period, as this can cause a permanent after-image to remain on the Plasma TV. Examples of still pictures include logos, video games, computer images, teletext and images displayed in 4:3 mode.

Installation

Receiver Location
This unit is intended to be used with the stand or bracket. Consult your dealer for available options. Position for comfortable viewing. Avoid placing where sunlight or other bright light (including reflections) will fall on the screen. Use of some types of fluorescent lighting can reduce remote control transmitter range. Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent internal component failure. Keep away from areas of excessive heat or moisture.
Optional External Equipment

The Video/Audio connection between components can be made with shielded video and audio cables. For best performance, video cables should utilize 75 ohm coaxial shielded wire. Cables are available from your dealer or electronic supply store. Before you purchase any cables, be sure you know what type of output and input connectors your various components require. Also determine the length of cable you will need.
Remote Control Battery Installation
1. Open the cover. 2. Install the batteries and replace the cover. Note the correct polarity (+ and -). Two AA size

Helpful Hints:

For frequent remote control users, replace old batteries with alkaline batteries for longer life.
Precaution on battery use
Incorrect installation can cause battery leakage and corrosion that will damage the remote control transmitter. Observe the following precautions: 1. Batteries should always be replaced as a pair. Always use new batteries when replacing the old set. 2. Do not combine a used battery with a new one. 3. Do not mix battery types (example: Zinc Carbon with Alkaline). 4. Do not attempt to charge, short-circuit, disassemble, heat or burn used batteries. 5. Battery replacement is necessary when remote control acts sporadically or stops operating the TV set.
Whenever you remove the batteries, you may need to reset the remote control infrared codes. We recommend that you record the code on page 40, prior to setting up the remote control.
