Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drive In Screen in my HOME! This Big Screen was a Christmas gift to myself this past week! I love it. I debated upon this and others for many weeks before deciding to buy this particular model. I am and have not been disappointed! The worry I had was the lighting levels in my beach side condo here in Antigua. But not to worry....it is very watchable both night AND day! The SD slot comes in very handy for my cell phone memory card to see what I've taken during the day! And the ease of operation is so quick! I just love my new Plasma!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT TV DEFINITELY A GREAT VALUE. I HAVE HAD THE TV ABOUT A MONTH AND LOVE IT. I JUST WATCHED THE XMAS PARADE FROM DISNEY WORLD ON IT AND IT FELT LIKE YOU WERE AT THE PARADE. MY HUSBAND LOVES WATCHING THE FOOTBALL GAMES ON IT--FEELS LIKE YOU ARE WATCHING THE GAME FROM THE 50 YARD LINE. I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS TV TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High- End HD AT Budget cost I am a Supervisor at a high end electronics store.(5 years) I have witnessed the changes in flat panels. Plasma tv's have always had the best picture. (ecspecaily Panasonics) A Panasonic ED tv would out perform entry level HD models from other brands. I am a 1080p fan, but mostly for the PS3. If you sit further than 8-10 feet away you will not see a diference in 1080p vs 720p. If you do sit closer you will notice the difference. If money is not in the factor go with the PZ800. If your looking for exceptional picture at an amazeing price...look no further. Get the matching Panasonic Blu-ray with a nice HDMI cable, subscride to HD from your current cable or sattelite provider and you are set for 100,000 hours of video bliss. The colors are truely beautiful! Fast motion is perfect. You will not find a better black level on any tv from any maker and the SD card slot is the cherry on top. Trust my expierenece, ive done the home work for you. You will be more then satisfied with this tv. You will love it.

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.
