Summary: Hello all - for all of those with the "7 Blinks of Death" my P55GT30 has joined in your ranks. With the research I've conducted I found that the following are common experiences for those who bought this TV: * 1-2 years of good service from the TV (happy customers when the TV was working) * for the...
Summary: This has been a great tv, but at 29 months it fails. I live in florida and trying to get anyone to service this turkey has been a chore. I've already spent about $240 for labor and a new card and I am not getting any closer to getting this fixed.
Summary: I loved this TV, however it died after 2 years. I bought this in July of 2011 and it died as of November 2013. Apparently it happens with Panasonic Plasmas. See the badcaps.net forums or search for 7 blinks of death for Panasonic.
Summary: I would highly recommend not buying this TV. I have had it for about 2 years and it just died on me. 7 blinking lights of death, which seems to be a very common problem with Panasonic. Called support, they are not willing to look at it as it is out of warranty.
Summary: I had this T.V. for 20months when it completely failed. I did some research and found that I was not alone. Panasonic plasma tvs are failing at a staggering rate and giving the 'blinking lights of death'.
Summary: Thirteen months after purchasing this television and just one month after the waranty expired, the television just died. It will not cost me $600 to have the TV repaired, but nobody knows when that will happen because the part is on backorder from Panasonic, which just tells me other people are...
Summary: The picture stopped working a year and a month after I purchased the TV. The power light indicator blinked 7 time indicating a failed SC board. Panasonic Customer service said they would not fix the TV because it was a month over the warranty period.

Summary: This item replaced a still functioning nine year-old plasma that had never failed. The Panasonic TV went totally dead after we had it about 10 months. Panasonic sent out a tech from a local repair shop. He did no diagnostic testing but replaced one circuit board.
Summary: I bought this TV before Christmas, but have waited to do a review until a problem was fixed. Soon after I got it the brightness started fluctuating and was very irritating. I contacted Panasonic right away and they seemed at first to be very responsive, scheduling a person to come out and replace...
