How to Configure a Panasonic TV
Just set the options on your TV and you're ready to roll (Chris Stein/Digital Vision/Getty Images)

Your Panasonic TV is almost ready to use right out of the box. Of course, you have to let the TV scan for channels before you can watch them, but this is easy to do using the main settings menu, which can be accessed at the push of a button. Along with scanning for channels, you can also set the time, which language to use and accessibility options for the deaf and hard of hearing. Once you have set all these options, you can finally sit back and enjoy your TV.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Press the "Power" button on the remote control to turn the TV on, then press the "Action" button to display the main menu.

  2. 2

    Use the "Ch Up/Down" and "Vol Left/Right" buttons to navigate to "Settings" on the main menu. Press the "Action" button to display the set-up menu.

  3. 3

    Use the "Vol Left/Right" buttons to change the "Menu" settings to "Icon" if you wish the menu to display icons only, without text. Change it back to "Icon+Text" if you wish the icons be displayed with corresponding text.

  4. 4

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "CC On Mute" item, and use "Vol Left/Right" to switch between "Yes," "Cap C1," and "Cap C2." This determines whether closed captioning will be displayed or not when the TV is muted. Press the "Action" button when you are finished to return to the settings menu.

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "Set Time" item, and use "Vol Left/Right" to set the hour. Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the minutes field, and use "Vol Left/Right" to set minutes. Press the "Action" button when you have finished setting the time to return to the settings menu.

  6. 6

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "Antenna" item, and use "Vol Left/Right" to switch between "TV" and "Cable." Choose "TV" if your TV is connected to a VHF/UHF antenna or cable converter box, or choose "Cable" if your TV is connected directly to a cable system.

  7. 7

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "Auto Program" item, then press either "Vol Left" or "Vol Right" to start auto programming. The TV will now scan each available channel automatically. Press "Action" when finished to return to the settings menu.

  8. 8

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "Manual Program" item, and press either "Vol Left" or "Vol Right" to display the manual programming menu. Use "Ch Up/Down" to cycle through channels, "Vol Right" to add a channel to memory, or "Vol Left" to delete a channel from memory. Press "Action" when you are finished to return to the settings menu.

  9. 9

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "CC Mode" item, and use "Vol Left/Right" to choose between "Off," "Cap C1," "Text C1," "Cap C2," or "Text C2." Captions display up to four lines of text designed not to block the picture, while text blocks out part of the picture to display more information. Press "Action" when you are finished to return to the settings menu.

  10. 10

    Press "Ch Down" once to navigate to the "Language" item, and use "Vol Left/Right" to select "English" or "Espanol." Press "Action" to return to the settings menu.
