Summary: Panny used to make quality electronics, but not anymore. Bought the expensive TV on October 2012 and it's broken already. Did a Google search and saw that this is a common problem with many Panny TV. Red light blinking, but no video, no sound.
Summary: We purchased two of these models, a 50" and my daughter purchased a 42". We loved everything about it except for one big thing. The 42" lasted one year and my 50" died after two years. It started with a gray strip on the screen and then after a week it just went dark.
Horrible customer service but Fantastic Picture Quality, Great Value

Summary: There are enough reviews out there on the internet about the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65GT30 65-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV and it's (TC-P65GT50) successor that I don't need to add much. Fantastic picture quality for the money and nothing really seems to come close.
Summary: I love this TV. Great blacks and color. Unfortunately after a few months the TV started turning off and on on it's own. These things happen. For the last couple of months I've been on the phone with Panasonic 10 to 15 times trying to get this fixed.
SC board, SD board, and SU board issues $1,100 + repair = $1,600

Summary: TC-P55GT30 Unfortunately this appears to be a common issue developing with these Panasonic sets i.e the '7 blinks of death'! Several customers are complaining about it. The problem is caused by one, both, or all of the following boards: SC board, SD board, and SU board.
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: 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: 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 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: I bought it less than a year ago. Just got the "seven blinking lights of death". Turns out the circuit boards died. Known issue with these TVs. It's been 2 weeks and now I find out the parts are back ordered for another 3 weeks. That is 5 weeks.
