Instructions

  1. 1

    Insert a memory card into your computer. Download the firmware file from Panasonic's website (see Resources). When prompted, click "Save As" and locate the memory card. Click "Save."

  2. 2

    Remove the memory card from the computer. Turn the Panasonic television on by pressing the power button once. Insert the memory card into the television. The memory card slot is found on the side of the unit. The television will now read the card and display a set-up menu on the screen.

  3. 3

    Point the remote control at the television and press "OK" to begin the set-up. The firmware set-up will bring you to the next screen. You will now be prompted with an "Upgrade Information" screen. Use the arrow buttons to select "Yes" and click "OK." The screen will now go blank while the firmware is updated.

  4. 4

    Allow the firmware to complete the update. The television will shut down automatically when finished. Remove the memory card by pulling it out of the slot. Unplug the power cord; wait one minute, then plug the power cord back in. The firmware update is now complete.
