Summary: At the time I purchased this TV in 2009, it was a higher end TV and cost around $2600. For the last 4 months, it has not powered back on after shutting it off and wanting to turn it on in a few minutes. It would blink twice repeatedly so I'd unplug and wait for 1 - 3 hours for it to cool down.
Summary: This TV has been wonderful for the 2 1/2 yrs of use. It all came to a crashing halt, yesterday as I was trying to get ready for the game and my TV would not turn on after programing the anttena channels. I unplug the TV after about about 8-10 mins of waiting.
I will never buy a Panasonic Viera plasma again!!!! EVER!
20 October 2011
Summary: Had this TV since the beginning of 2009 and last year an intermittent problem with a pinkish strip about 1/3 of the way from the left the TV. Contacted Panasonic and it went away ... so I let the issue sleep.
Summary: I too am a casualty of the dreaded blinks. Just got off the phone with Panasonic who are soooo sorry I spent 1500 bucks on a POS machine. I am a teacher and on a limited budget and saved up for a big screen plasma for our new house. Read all the glowing reviews and went with the big purchase.
Summary: Set was delivered quickly by Amazon and unpacked, but delivery man could not help lift it up on TV stand (liability problems). After my son helped me lift set to TV - not really all that heavy - the set worked perfectly and the picture with all input sources was beautiful.
Summary: This was my first major online purchase, and I was nervous about it. I researched plasmas to the point that it was becoming a joke in my family. It was difficult to find my choices in one store for side-by-side comparisons.
