Reviews

TC-P50U2 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20001.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value but Leaves me Wanting More This TV was a great price when I bought it 4 years ago and it really seems to have held its value. My biggest problem is the same thing another reviewer noted. Whether CATS is on or off, sometimes dark areas of the picture will suddenly lighten and then it will go back to dark. It does this quite often and it's very annoying as it takes you out of the movie experience. It is a nice size and easy to use but I wish it was a bit more clear. I've tweaked tons of settings but I'm never quite happy with the picture. It's good but I wish it was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! This TV is a great package for the price. However, this TV is made for dark light rooms because it is highly reflective. The room I have it in now does get a bit of sunlight that is slightly noticeable and can get annoying. If the TV isnt customly formated for picture when watching Cable it may be blury so make sure to format properly. Also I would advise that you should get a seperate speaker system because the built in sound is not the best quality. Finally there are only 3 HDMI, 2 HD Component cables and one AV cable input so there is a lack of inputs. Despite these drawbacks the TV has a great size, picture quality (made for gaming and Blu-Ray), very easy to set up and adjust settings, and is a must buy for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Contrast Flickering I dont know if I am the only one but i need to look at other plasma TVs BUT I am experiencing what looks like a flicker in the contrast while viewing any kind of media. You can see the screen lighten then darken, my CATS is currently shut off and its doing it in every mode. Bang for the buck is great but I feel this should be looked into.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal Great deal. only problem is it does not have a anti-glare finish on the screen so in my sunny room it reflects images. Get the TC-P50S2 if you are concerned about glare. Little fuzzy when you are with in 2-4 ft of the screen

  • 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.
