Summary: Called Panasonic and as expected they could have cared less. I mentioned how it seemed common for these to die after 2 years, and I was told nothing lasts for ever....nice. I noticed the replacement boards are redesigned??? could it be they know there was a problem?
Pros: Had a great Picture. Sound was not bad.
Cons: TV died after only two years. Look on line, this seems to be common for the 42" to die after 2-3 years. Even repairing it myself would cost about 3/4 the cost of the unit. Bad SC Board, Bad power supply
Summary: I have had this TV approximately 2 years and like many others was very happy with picture quality and was in aggreement with most other reviewers about the quality of Panasonic products. This opinion has been jaded recently.
Cons: Bad sound, there are no female plug cable adapter that can connect your wireless speakers to the television. In order to be able to connect speakers to the TCP42X1 it must go through an amp or a receiver. If you want good sound, you need to spend another $300 to $500. Sad custom service.
