Reviews

TH-C42FD18 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Purchase I'm one of those people who suffers from buyers remorse, almost to the point of depression. However, I haven't had a day's worth of buyer's remorse with this television. I'd researched televisions for over a month, and came across a number of glowing reviews for the Panasonic plasmas. I looked at TVs at a number of stores, and the only models that came close to the TV in picture quality cost $500-2000 more. I couldn't find anything that came even remotely close to the picture and sound of this model. The connection options are incredible, and I have been extremely pleased with this television. My friends who have purchased more expensive TVs all drool with jealousy when they watch mine. When this is paired with the DMP-BD35K Blu ray player, you'll be blown away with how amazing TV and movies can really look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from minor problem very easy set up. But the picture had a little blur spot on occasion. Brought the tv back to store and exchanged. New one seems to be a lot better. no reflection problem, sound is very good, picture quality on HD is excellent. I did some readjusting of factory picture set up. very good remote.

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.
