Re-Calibrate your Panasonic GT series panel

Is your calibration out of whack on your Panasonic GT series of panels? Many factors, such as age, constant use, and its environment can affect the panels over time. This short guide will show you how easy it is to re-calibrate your screen back to factory condition. 

STEP ONE - Bring up the system menu!

To begin touch the LCD touch panel simultaneously:
  1. Press the upper left corner (1) for two seconds
  2. Press the upper right corner of the screen briefly (2)
  3. Press the lower right corner of the screen briefly (3)

  4. After following the touch pattern above, it will bring up the initial screen of the System Menu displayed on the GT unit. Touching either the Setting or Test key will shift you to the next screen, touching the ESC key will exit you from the system menu and switch back on to normal operating mode.



STEP TWO - Selecting the mode

Selecting the Settings mode will allow you to configure the settings in the GT unit such as:
  • Adjust the screen’s brightness and contrast
  • Set the Tool port and COM port communication settings
  • Set the GT internal clock (if available)
  • Clear the memory
  • Copy the SD memory card contents from/to a GT unit



Selecting the Test mode will let you run hardware checks such as
  • Check the DIP switch settings
  • Screen position
  • Check the LCD
  • Test the backlight and buzzer
  • Adjust the screen’s brightness and contrast


STEP THREE - Re-Calibrate

To start re-calibrating and adjusting your touch position, select Touch SW in the Settings Menu. 

This allows you to run an operation check of your touch switches. From here, it will direct you to touch a series of points on the screen to make sure your screen is calibrated correctly in line with the touch switch on your panel.



STEP FOUR - Self Diagnosis

Once you have completed re-calibrating your touch points on the screen, you will be able to perform a self-diagnosis to check the status of the functionality. To test your screen, navigate to the Test Menu and select Touch SW & DIP SW. You should now be able to check the status of your DIP switches without having to remove the panel and test the screen functionality.
