Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love IT!!!! My husband and I had purchased the 42" Panasonic and loved it but wanted a bigger T.V. so we purchased the 50" Panasonic and love it we still have the 42" and use it in another area of our house both T.V.'s are great and I don't think we would ever purchase anything other than a Panasonic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plasma vs LCD- Dilemma I wanted the LCD in large screen, I couldn't locate one within my budget, I searched high and low. I just bought a home entertainment wall unit and couldn't stand the fact it was empty for five days. I was at work one day browsing the net and I saw this model on sale. I debated about the purchase for 3 more hours. Finally, I decided I'll just go and see, and hour later I was home unboxing it. Yes, it is heavy but I didn't expect to be light. the picture quality is superb, as for the sound (stand alone is good)but I bought a Panasonic home theatre system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy it again I have had my TV for about 3 months now and couldnt be happier, at first i was gonna go with LCD but after looking at the picture on each i didnt see any difference. so i figured why spend the extra money if there isnt anything different.

  • 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.
