Reviews

TC-50PS64 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was misled .... ..significantly on a feature. The INFINITE BLACK was/is said to be better at eliminating reflections in plasma display.The S64 was said to be home to this feature. Finding an S64 was very,very hard and I paid a dealer premium price because of the rarity. On the price and the INFINITE feature I feel taken. The S64 was to replace a 6+ year old Viera plasma in my living room. The room lamp I was trying to defeat is defeating INFINITE. Its not a bright lamp at all and the room overall is low light /no window glare. The 6 year old VIERA is identical in ability to overcome reflections in display in same location. AFTER 6 YEARS. I mostly like this plasma set BUT had I bought it locally it would be going back. Did you read that Panasonic?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, great picture, rock solid choice. I would first like to say that this Plasma TV is my first. I've owned LCD's and LED's over the last 8 years. I've always wanted a plasma, but just didn't pull the trigger because I was used to bright displays. After doing considerable research and realizing that my space was ideal for a plasma ( low lit room ), I finally bit and Im glad I did. Yes it took a few days or a few weeks to get used to the picture which is not nearly as bright as most LCD's and LED's. But I quickly realized that bright, vivid, oversaturated color's dont mean a great picture. Whe you calibrate this plasma TV, after 150 to 200 hours of break in time, I challenge anyone to not admit that a well calibrated S64 plasma TV in a well suited room with low light or no light are not the most natural, deep and rich colors you can find. As a huge fan of movie watching with a huge Blu-Ray collection, when this baby is set up right and the lighting is controlled, be ready for the best viewing experience you will ever have. I used to be one of those people that thought bright, ultra colorful LED's on showroom florrs meant better. Well not anymore.........talk about natural, deep black, realistic, smooth action, plasma is just that. This TV was a steal, purchased from Costco at less than half the price of the LED is was looking at. I have no need for 3D, so this TV with its Infinate Black panal was a homerun. Best purchase I've made on a 1080P period. Watch Avatar/Ironman 1-3/Blade Runner/ 2001 A Space Odyssey/ Lawrence of Arabia/ Rear Window/ Vertigo/ Ben Hur/ Taxi Driver/ Alien or Aliens/ Gone With The Wind/ The Godfather 1 or2 / Batman Dark Knight 1,2,3/ Easy Rider/ Avengers, Chinatown/ Saving Private Ryan/ The Thin Red Line/ Casablanca/ Raging Bull/ Wizard of Oz/ The Bridge on the River Kwai to name a few. With a good quality Blu-Ray player and an HDMI cable, your gonna be really happy seeing great movies all over again for the first time. Im dead serious.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Picture, Great Price I recently purchased the S64 from Costco and I am very satisfied with my purchase. In store, the LED TV's are much brighter, but the plasma TV's provide a much more realistic picture with deeper blacks. Pros: Picture Quality (highly adjustable through advanced menu) Infinite black - works well in bright rooms Internet connectivity for most common apps (Netflix, Hulu, Cinema Now, Amazon, VUDU, You Tube) Price - Exceptional value for a TV of this quality Cons: Sound Quality - The speakers are not of the same quality as older Panasonic plasma TV's. Most likely, due to the smaller footprint of the sets. A soundbar is needed for this TV.

FAQs
  • What should I do if my TV will not turn on and the power indicator LED is not flashing?
    Follow these troubleshooting steps:
    • Make sure your TV's power cord is plugged into an electrical outlet.
    • Make sure the electrical outlet the TV is plugged into has power by testing known working device in that outlet.
    • After verifying the TV is plugged into a working outlet, try pressing the [POWER] button on the TV instead of the TV remote.
    If the outlet is working and the TV will not turn on after pressing the [POWER] button on the TV, please consider having the unit serviced. Click here for Panasonic Service Locator.
  • What should I do if the front Power indicator LED light is blinking?
    1. Unplug the TV's power cord.
    2. Unplug all cables.
    3. Power the TV using a different power outlet (do not use a power strip or surge protector).

    If the problem persists, please consider having the TV serviced. Click here for Panasonic Service Locator.

    Note: Count how many times the LED light blinks. This can help a technician troubleshoot the problem.
  • What should I do if I can access all of the TV apps except Netflix?
    1. Change the DNS setting of your TV to 8.8.8.8.
    2. If you are able to access the Netflix splash screen, use the TV remote to deactivate your account by pressing Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up. After this process, try loggin back into the Netflix TV app.

    If the procedure is successful a screen will come up with the option to deactivate your device from your account. If not try the process again. Once you have successfully deactivated your device, you will need to activate it by opening Netflix and at the main screen selecting Member Sign In, then following the on screen prompts until activation is complete.

    If the Netflix app still fails to open, but all of the other TV apps work, visit help.netflix.com for more support.

  • What should I do if I have bars displaying on the TV screen?
    Change the format (aspect ratio) of the picture by pressing the [FORMAT] or [ASPECT] button on the TV's remote control. If you still have bars, check the aspect settings on your external video source, such as Cable/Satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray Disc player, etc. Note: Some content, such as film-based movies, are available in extra-wide format. Top and bottom bars are unavoidable.
