I tried 1080 on the box and it was a no-go. If memory serves it merely kicked it back down to 720 or it wouldn't work & I had to set it back to 720. It's odd to me as it "only" requires an interruption in HDMI cable after powering back up and it's good to go. This is an upgrade as it replaces the P42 at 480. Plus the standard 480 signal was fraught w/issues having many channels that were substandard in signal strength. Even at 720 the quality difference is very noticeable and after experiencing the bright lights of big city life it's hard to go back to coal oil lamps ...
I was hoping for a remote/toggle or push button HDMI switch that I suppose would make no sense except for my peculiar application.
W/ball game on I pulled cables and made the swap. As soon as I hooked them back the game came up. As soon as I powered the old panny off & brought it back up I see the lavender screen. Pull one lead and plug it back & everything is dandy and the ball game comes back on board.
At this juncture I seem to need a remote controlled power strip to eliminate toggling the power.
For some reason, The Clapper commercial is playing in me noodle ...
Well I have a Panasonic TC-P50X1 for about a few years now. It has started to turn on and off again with no picture. The red light comes on but does not blink. I did replace the power board but it did not fix the problem. I don't see anything wrong with any capacitors, but then again I am a novice at this kind of thing. What could be wrong and is it an easy fix?
Called Panasonic support, their tech walked me through their "official reset process." Unplug set from surge control and plug directly into wall outlet, unplug all external devices, hold power button for 30 seconds...turn it on. When that didn't work, hold power button again for 10 seconds...turn it on.
That actually worked! Until I turned it off, then it happened again, this time, it won't reset.
I don't really want to spend a lot to fix or replace this...it's been relegated to use in our spare room since buying the TCP65VT60 last year at this time...but it's nice to have for when we have company...or when my wife and I disagree on what to watch.
Any suggestions on what to try next? I understand swapping parts isn't much worse than working on a computer...and I've built my own PC's for many years.
