Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good TV Overall I got the TV for about a month. The picture quality is very good with HD channels(1080i) (Need to adjust the contrast under "Normal Picture Mode" in order the get a good picture quality.) It is very simply to use. Plasma TV has better picture quality than LCD TV(600Hz, better viewing angles, etc), but keep in mind, it consumes much more energy than LCD TV. The top of TV get warm while in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from 1080P ?? Purchased this TV based on the signs around it claiming it was 1080P, as it only has 900 lines of resolution it would only really qualify as a 900P. This is misleading, I also have a Panasonic 42in Plasma 1080P which has an outstanding picture. There is definitely a visible difference between this 54 and my 42, the 42 has much more clarity and definition. But then again the 42 is true 1080P As a starter Plasma TV for somebody this definitely will meet their needs if purchased when it's on sale. It does a good job of rendering Blu-Ray playback with no flicker issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from so many choices in the market. I narrowed down to Panasonic Plasma. Panasonic is a market leader with good reputation. Plasma best suited for my dimly lit basement. Beautiful picture and sound is great hooked up to external speakers and surround sound. High def is awesome. Can't believe it took me so long to switch from rear projection. It looks great sitting in my rec room, I even enjoy watching commercials now. I'm all set for holiday football and college hoops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Follow up review I have owned my Panasonic 54S14 for a month and my family has enjoyed this Plasma even more. Here is something Panasonic does not mention, you can connect a PC by HDMI cable to get full CRISP 1080P (1920*1080) resolution! By Panasonic Spec, this TV renders 900 horizontal lines, however it has full capability of displaying 1080P (1920*1080) resolution. The picture quality from a Bluray and HD sport programs are almost like watching 3D. I had no faulty issue from this Plama or from my older 42 inch Panasonic. Panasonic Plasma is an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Initial review This is my second Panasonic Plasma TV. All I can say is Panasonic makes excellent Plasma TV for your money. Went from 42" to 54" screen was a joy to my eyes. The HD picture on this TV is amazing, black is black, picture is vivid and colors are WOW... The PC input is crisp @ 1280*1024 to surf the net and watch Video streams from a laptop. The sound quality is good as well. The S14 series are entry level of 1080P plasma, its not a true 1080P but even at 900P the picture is still outstanding. I agree, you get what you pay. But this 54" S14 plasma does not sacrifices in picture quality, it is worth every penny and is far superior to any other brand out there for your money. You will not regret purchasing this TV.

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.
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, 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 get audio but no picture from an external device connected to my TV?
- Try unplugging the cable between the TV and the external device and reconnecting it firmly on both sides.
- Try unplugging the power cord of the external device for 30 seconds.
- Try connecting another external device to the same input using the same cable.
- If the picture returns on the second device, you may need to contact the manufacturer of the first external device you had connected for further troubleshooting.
- Try using a different cable between your device and the TV using the same input of your TV. If you get a picture and audio, you may need to replace your cable.
- Try another input of the TV to verify if there is an issue with the TV input the external device was connected to.
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.
