TC-42PX24 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended & excellent Picture, would have never purchased a Plasma TV before now, but I am hooked

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding if you are going to buy an HDTV get an HD Signal please. If you are still using Composite video get with the times and keep your Tube tv. This Tv is awesome great picture (HD Signal). One great tv anti glare filter is the best. Panasonic knows how to build a tv and still continues to be the leader. I will never buy an LCD and yes LED's are LCD's. Plasma is the way to go. Great depth, color, the best BLACK levels (true color). If you don't like the sound get a sound bar or 5.1 home theater setup no tv gives outstanding sound, c'mon people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Panasonic 42" flat screen Plasma Great TV picture. Lousy sound out of speakers aimed down. What's worse there is no analog (RCA) audio output to connect to simple amp/speaker setup. The only audio out is optical and suitable for home theater, but not for the average user.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the best basic plasma out there This is a great TV, with a great picture, and it's only 720p! Plasma has the best picture for sports, and excellent color for movies. Glare and refection is only a problem with very bright sunlight, but that's a problem with all TVs. At night it's awsome. Also, don't judge the picture quality until you hook up a real HD source - basic cable and VHS tapes do not look great with this TV or ANY make of plasma or LCD. A CBC full HD broadcast (from the antenna!) looked excellent. My regular DVD player (upscaled to 1080) also looked great. There are lots of inputs for this TV - more than the previous model. It also has an audio out (Toslink) which is very useful for anyone using an antenna as the primary source to get audio into your home theatre. I especially like the memory card slot for viewing pictures on slide show. One negative: sound quality from the built in speakers is not great - they point to the wall behind the TV so it's not that clear and the volume needs to be up at 30 or 40 to be heard. I use the audio out to a HT amp so not a big deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but....... Excellent price, value and picture. Speakers would sound better if they faced to the front instead of down. Wall mounting would help the sound as it wouldn't then bounce off the stand. A RCA audio output would be a welcomed addition. The only audio output is fiber optic which eliminates the use of some of the older components and surround systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality & Features This plasma TV was very easy to setup. My girlfriend and I set it up in less than 10 minutes from unpacking it to turning it on. Then we were watching TV on the big screen! The picture quality is excellent! We don't have HD channels (yet) but it still looks amazing. I connected both my laptop and PC using DVI to HDMI on the TV to view some HD content and the quality was amazing. The only issue I noticed is when I plugged the cable into the HDMI port is that my cable and adapter were too heavy and I wasn't getting a proper signal. I believe the issue is that I'm using a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and because that adapater sticks out so far that it's too heavy for the HDMI port to handle all that weight. I noticed my signal was picking up on the TV, but after placing an object under my DVI-to-HDMI adapter the connection was established and my signal came through great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Highly recommended for price and excellent resolution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed!!! Worst Purchase Ever! All was well until I brought TV home,hooked it up,turned it on,easy set up,everything was great,was happy as could be,picture looked great,wife n kids were so excited eyes wide with anticipation and then unit powered off never to power on again!!? This was so frustrating, needless to say I now have to return this TV because there is no way I'm going to have it serviced or try to troubleshoot the problem over the phone or via web chat on the same day as the purchase. Family very upset and disappointed was lookin forward to enjoying this Panasonic product. My search for a TV continues...

  • I can access other Apps on my TV, but cannot access Netflix. How can I fix this?
    Symptoms:
    • When the Netflix app is selected, the Netflix splash screen appears, then Netflix closes and returns to the VIERA Cast home screen, Network Services screen, or HOME screen.
    • When the Netflix app is selected, "Unable to Connect to Netflix. Please Try Again Later" is displayed
    • Netflix can be accessed, but when a title is selected, "Unable to Play This Title Right Now. Please Try Again Later" is displayed.
    • Netflix can be accessed, a title can be selected, but during playback the picture blanks out, buffers, or freezes frequently.

    Additional Information:
    • Network applications on Panasonic products are only accessible on networks with high speed internet access.

    Suggested Solution:
    • Power the Netflix ready device on and allow at least 90 seconds for it to connect to the network before performing a Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application. If the Netflix application fails to open, manually change the Primary DNS settings to 8.8.8.8 and the Secondary DNS to 8.8.4.4. If there is only one DNS setting available, change it to 8.8.8.8 (click here for a TV network troubleshooting tutorial.)
    • Once the DNS has been changed, perform another Connection Test.
    • Once the Connection Test has passed, attempt to open the Netflix application.
    • If none of your applications can be accessed, unplug the power cord of your modem or router for at least 10 seconds.This will reboot your modem or router.
    • If the Netflix application still fails to open, try another network application. If other applications function properly but Netflix does not click here for Netflix Help Center or call Netflix customer support at 1-866-716-0414.

  • The power light on the TV is on steady, but I do not have a picture, sound or both?
    This could be caused by a few factors:

    First check to ensure your TV is selected to the correct input (Source). If you are watching cable or satellite, following the cable from that device to the back of your TV.
    If it is connected to antenna, HDMI 1/2/3, component or video you must also have the TV input select to match that connection. On the remote push the input button to check what source is selected on your TV.
    Very important, you must ensure your cable box or satellite unit is turned on.
    On some cable and satellite boxes, you may get audio with no picture if the box is turned off. If this does not resolve your issue, you may require service.
