What a piece of garbage. Nobody able to fix it as boards are ...
28 November 2014
Summary: Read all reviews in 2011, bought this TV as it was rated high. Within 1.3 yrs it failed with red flashing light. What a piece of garbage. Nobody able to fix it as boards are not being repaired anywhere. Terrible support by Panasonic, they offered $70 dollars on a $2100 TV. I will neve buy another Panasonic TV as they DO NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCTS. extremely displeased!

Summary: WARNING!!! WARNING!!! This TV has a major, major defect that everyone should be aware of before they purchase. Panasonic has had major issues with this TV and they don't really stand behind the product when the failure occurs. On this product, and most Panasonic video display products, they have a built in diagnostic. I.e.
Summary: I purchased two version, one 50" and the other 60": Panasonic TCP50S30 & Panasonic TCP60S30... Both TV's are dead in under 6 months! Check the web, Google "Panasonic TCP50S30 8 blinks", "Panasonic TCP50S30 10 blinks", "Panasonic TCP50S30 14 blinks"... Panasonic customers are looking into starting a class action suit against Panasonic for selling low quality TV's, many users such as myself have replaced a bad board under warranty, and then have had to replace boards(s)...
Summary: This was a great TV while it lasted. If you check out the other 1 star reviews for this TV, or google the "7 blinking lights Panasonic", you'll see that Panasonic has a quality issue with their VT30 tvs, possibly even their plasmas made in the past several years. Mine died after first starting a loud buzzing sound that would get louder the more white was on the screen.
Summary: The TV was great for the first 2 years then suddenly quit working. It is called the 7 blinks of death and from what I understand, it is common on this unit. I would hope a tV of this price point would last longer than 2 years!
Summary: At first, I loved this television. I picked it up after my Pioneer Kuro was stolen. You can read my Kuro review to see what I thought about that television. Every review I could find said this was THE television to have going forward. Panasonic was supposed to pick up the flag after Pioneer exited the television business, especially in the plasma market. Well, it is NOT as good as the Kuro, but it's definitely great - or so I thought. I have always been into the picture.
Summary: BOUGHT THIS TV ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO. WORKED NICELY THEN DIED. NOTE TV WAS NOT USED HEAVILY, JUST 2 ADULTS IN HOUSE, NO YOUNG CHILDREN, NO GAMING. JUST GOOGLE " SEVEN BLINKING LIGHTS OF DEATH " TO LEARN THIS LINE OF PANASONIC TV'S IS KNOWN FOR THIS. AUTHORIZED PANASONIC REPAIR SERVICE HAS INFORMED ME TV MAY NOT BE WORTH FIXING! I PAID $2,000 FOR THIS TV.
Summary: Like many others who purchased this set based on the tremendous reviews the set worked great for two years then failed (search for "7 blinks of death"). Even though I purchased an extended warranty Panasonic has no idea when the required parts will be available to complete the repairs and has not been helpful. I will think twice before purchasing Panasonic products in the future and will certainly caution others based on my experience.
