Rated 5 out of 5 by from great buy This is a great tv for the price. With all the features it has you dont need anything else. It is awsome haveing family over and show them you digital photos on the tv where they can see them. very user freindly. not to sophisticated for any one to use. iI recomend getting the wall bracket for the tv it is great haveing the floor space back that a entertainment center took up in my living room. Every thing about this tv is awsome. Please dont hesitate to buy. You wont be sorry. The best thing about the panasonic brand tv is the screen sweeper so if something burns into the screen it will wipe it away just like the etch-a-sketch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Television This is the best television for for this price range. The colors are vivid, the blacks are deep, and the contrast is outstanding for the price. This television does a excellent job of processing both high definition and standard definition materials making all materials look crisp and detail. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this tv especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't stop watching this thing! This TV is truly amazing. It was actually a post Christmas impulse buy, but after a quick call to a friend who really knows TV's, I realized it was a deal I couldn't pass up. After the initial 100 hour break in period (without tweaking the settings much), I looked up picture calibration settings for this TV online and must say it is stunning. I simply watch too much TV now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Basically Aspect Ratio does not allow you to see the full picture. It chops the picture which is disappointing when what letter box tv shows and movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture and Value I have been researching flat screen TV's for better than a year, and when I found this one, I was sold...

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, 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.
