TC-P50X5 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Power failure It is very annoying that every time the power goes out or the tv is unplugged it "dies" I have not gotten any clear answers as to why this keeps happening. It's takes days to weeks for it to turn back on sometimes. I will never buy a panasonic tv again

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Power failure reset Why is it that everytime there's a power failure, I can't power on my TV set for hrs or even days?!?!?!? It is plugged in to a "anti-power surcharge" power bar(equiped w/a reset fuse)I unplugged it from the bar, and/or uppliged directlly from the back of the TV set, I never know when it's "gonna come back to life"!! It has been a very bad experience having to cancel a few sports evening w/friends because of that issue! Please reply w/a suitable answer!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for Bought this tv very cheap new from sears. The tv does not really show the color white... Just a light gray substituted for white. You can see lines across the tv dor aome programs and commercials . But like i said you get what you pay for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I was not really in the market for a TV, but alas my old one finally quit. When I saw the quality of the picture on this set next to way more expenive sets I was hooked. Maybe a little skeptical about plasma, but Panasonic has done it right. For the money this is by far the best looking and performing TV I have seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING VALUE AND QUALITY This was the largest TV in my price range. I must say, I do not regret my purchase whatsoever. Infact, I LOVE THIS TV. I was a little hesitant about purchasing a Plasma TV, but I must say, it is much better than any LCD TV I've ever owned. The Blacks are very dark, and the color is amazing. Great viewing at any angle. I honestly cannot physically tell the difference between the picture on this TV, and my other 1080p LCD TV. With the supposed 100,000 of viewing life, I plan on enjoying this TV for years to come. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture Unbelievable picture - the colors just pop off the screen, especially red and blue. I didn't want a smart TV or a 3 D TV - this set was just what I was looking for. I love it.

Owner's Manuals
  • 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.
