Crisp, Clear Moving Pictures

600Hz Sub-field Drive


Panasonic uses its own unique image-analysis technology. This technology converts the motion in each scene into data, and each frame is virtually displayed in a shorter length of time, to create crisp images.

Environment-Friendly Panel

Mercury and Lead Free


Panasonic is committed to making our products friendlier to the environment. In line with this commitment, all VIERA plasma display panels are free of both lead and mercury. This reduces the impact on the environment years down the road when the TV is recycled or retired from use.



Years of Beautiful Images

Long Panel Life


One important way consumers can protect the environment is by choosing high-quality products and taking care of them so they last for a long time. A high-quality VIERA HDTV can help. Thanks to a newly designed phosphor process and rear panel process, our plasma panels last for up to 100,000 hours before the brightness decreases by half. That's more than 30 years of viewing 8 hours a day.

*This measurement is based on the time taken for the brightness of the panel to reduce to half of its maximum level. The time taken to reach this level may vary depending on the image content and the environment where the TV is used. Image retention and malfunctions are not taken into account.

TC-P42X60 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unsurpassed picture quality This TV is awesome whether HD or non HD. Best TV I've seen for non-HD channels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV I've ever purchased Simple to set up, crystal clear picture and flawless motion anytime I'm watching it. It looks incredible when I'm using it for gaming. Love the bright colors and the cool features. Also had more than enough inputs for everything I needed, and was at a price point I couldn't beat. I've owned it for about a year and a half now and had no problems whatsoever! If I had the choice, I'd go back and do it again. Been an awesome TV!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from not 2 bad I had trouble getting my t.v. to turn back on. Just becoming unpluged fried out the mother board, this took over 2 month's to get it fixed ! Just a few month's later it happened again ! And all this time my t.v. is pluged into a powersurge strip. Now this time it only took a few week's to fix. The t.v. repairman told me that Panasonic was having trouble with the motherboard's in the 42" plasma t.v.'s, but that they had found what was wrong and redone all the board's, and now I will not have any more trouble with my t.v.. It's been almost a year now and I haven't had any trouble at all ! They came out to my house to repair my set both time's, even after the hard time I gave them over the phone ! I am disabled, so both time's they had the repairman come to my house to fix my t.v.. They usally have you bring it to the shop to get it fixed. Now I couldn't be any happier with my set. Thank you Panasonic, Dennis D. McCallum, Buffalo,N.Y.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good TV but not good enough. Black is GRAY, not even close to S60's. 720P is not future-proof.
Date published: 2013-08-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck Panasonic plasmas are the best in the business, and it shows in this entry level tv. To get something of this quality only 2 or 3 years ago would have cost 3 - 4 times the money. 720p is plenty for this size screen, especially since most broadcast HD is still 720p or 1080i. Perfect size for an apartment or master bedroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plasma, the REAL TV. Picture is HD but 720P is for 32". 1080P should be standard. The glass screen does not touch the slightly deformed plastic frame with rough edges (in the back). There is a small gap. It should be close like CRT TVs. Please fix it ASAP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four years old and picture is still great! Awesome television! I've had this plasma screen for four years and I haven't noticed any change in picture quality. I'd recommend Panasonic Plasma Screens to anyone :-)

  • 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.
