Screen cuts off top of heads

Check the menu settings for the picture. You may be expanding the image to fill the sides, in the process, cutting the top and bottom.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.

Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Hi..your temp. sensor tells you when your lamp is too hot and could possible melt your engine. That is why your TV shuts down. It could be your lamp fan is not working or not working good enough to cool your lamp. You may need to replace it and very easy fix.

Picture has shifted to the left

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for about $25. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here:
