Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Upgrade I bought this Plasma TV after plenty pre-search online, with friends, and with a couple home video pros. Though the pros wanted to bundle it into a home theater package, I found an excellent holiday sale price at local Big Box and decided to do the install myself. I upgrade from a 40" LCD on a TV stand to this 55" wall mounted above my fireplace. The upgrade is night and day. Picture quality is fantastic, set-up and install were easy, configuring picture with CNET recommendations was very easy and demonstrably improved picture. Coupled with a medium range sound bar and sub, this combination is just perfect for our viewing and listening. Oh, and my wife appreciates the additional room floor space now that our TV furniture is removed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not support Adobe Flash I was very excited to get this tv with the wifi option. Turns out it does support Adobe Flash and you can't watch videos from you web-browser. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I bought this as my first "fancy" tv purchase, upgrading from an older 47" hand-me-down plasma, and immediately regretted spending that kind of dough on a TV. However, the pre-search I had done showed I did get an excellent price in comparison to other related models. Once I got it home, all regrets disappeared. Set up was super easy, mounting to my stand was easier than using the stand that comes with it. Set up with the internet was a breeze - I run my wi-fi through my cell phone. Hands down, super easy to set up, super easy to configure and was watching the set within 15 min of getting it out of the box. I cannot BELIEVE how great the picture looks in my living room. Colors are all crisp, clear and fabulous. We set it up and put on Dr. Who streaming through the cell phone from Netflicks via the units onboard out of the box capabilities. Phenomenal. I can't say enough about it. I have visual impairments that make most tv viewing blah, don't see colors quite right and don't see well in general. This is the first time I haven’t been perched on the edge of my seat of see the fine details. My son said "I can even see the zit on his nose!" Hands down, awesome. :) I'm frugal and don't generally splurge on non-essential items unless it is for outdoor recreation. Totally pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from bright room This tv is good but don't buy if you have a bright room with lots of big windows. The picture look dull in a bright room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific The TV looks great and works very well with my receiver and home theater. Mounting on the ceiling mount was straight forward. Set up and use seem fairly easy. Everyone is very happy with the performance of the TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great T.V. for the price!!! Just got this installed today. Picture is clean and crisp. The sound is way better than I expected from a thin screen plasma. Connecting to the internet was a bit of a pain but, I think that was my problem not the T.V. Can't wait to watch the World Series and some football on this! Still experimenting with some settings, however, overall I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outclasses current competition This TV is beautiful and well priced. Blacks are black. Picture is clear and motion is excellent. Great picture out of the box using the Cinema preset; Superb picture with advanced settings found on CNET forums. Sound is very good compared to other flat panels. The quality for price is unbeatable... a set that looks this good can easily cost 2 - 3 times more. Oh, and the anti-image retention technology is great! *note: I have not used the 3D capabilities thus far but both SD and HD signals look great and games are crisp.

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, please 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 can access all of the TV apps except Netflix?
    1. Change the DNS setting of your TV to 8.8.8.8.
    2. If you are able to access the Netflix splash screen, use the TV remote to deactivate your account by pressing Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, Up, Up. After this process, try loggin back into the Netflix TV app.

    If the procedure is successful a screen will come up with the option to deactivate your device from your account. If not try the process again. Once you have successfully deactivated your device, you will need to activate it by opening Netflix and at the main screen selecting Member Sign In, then following the on screen prompts until activation is complete.

    If the Netflix app still fails to open, but all of the other TV apps work, visit help.netflix.com for more support.

  • 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.
