Reviews

TC-P42X3 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Support? What Support? Please Hold.......... The television itself is acceptable in terms of what it does for the price point it occupies. As for support, i attempted to "Live Chat" with somebody---anybody---in Panasonic technical support. i put in the requested information, and the result was little blue dots that faded in and out to tell me i was waiting my turn. No information about my position in the waiting line for a technician, no estimate of the average number of minutes i would to wait for assistance, just blue dots; fading in and fading out. after 15 minutes of dots i gave up. like so many companies these days, it would seem Panasonic claims to offer support to its customers, but instead hides behind the internet instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Set This is the best TV set I've ever had, the colours are great, the image is crisp and detailed. I couldn't ask for more with such a low price. This TV was made to last, but don't watch very static images because image retention is the main problem with plasma Tv's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Very happy with the picture quality and having the Viera tools is convenient. BUT.....why did you have the sleep option (a feature I use every single night) under 3 button presses.....how thoughtless Panasonic !!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For a less expensive tv, it works ok. The white colors are muted to light gray and overall it is not very bright. I have a more expensive Viera that performs well and was disapointed with this model. It does not have the clarity of the better set, not does it have the sharpness of a cheap LCD that I own when sitting beside it. The component input would not work with the satellite. I will exchange for a more expensive set. If the price is the driver, this is ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier. Bright, beautiful image. My first flat-panel TV, and the built-in Netflix integration works smoothly and saved me from having to buy a Roku. Note that while it doesn't come with wireless Ethernet, it does have a wired RJ-45 connector - - you can hook it directly to your home router cheaply and efficiently. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations This tv is so awesome. Great price for all its features. I get up to 1080i. Picture is great. Love Netflix! Forget LED's, their prices are to high.

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, 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.
