I Just got this TV last night. How are you running your setup? you need to use the wireless sender box. My setup was going to include a cable box DVD/blue ray and xbox360 how are you controlling all your devices? is there a good solution to control everything without line of sight? IE the sender is in line of sight to the TV but the cable box and DVD player are hidden away what is the best bet to get them working or to get everything on the same remote control?
I wall mounted mine. Used screws which came with it along with a couple of washers on each to ensure max. depth of 9mm as recommended.
Question for you other Z1 owners though...can you tell me what your screen looks like when powered off? Is it a solid grey or can you see somewhat of a pattern in it (like light blue blotches throughout the screen). That's how mine looks and its been bothering me. The store says they've found out two other sets look this way, and I'm still waiting on Panasonic to confirm one way or the other.
Nope no calibration or service menu. To the other question I am pretty sure you have to have the receiver/sender setup and not directly connected to the tv to have the remote control the power and the volume of the tv. Think I read that online.
Hey Z1 owners, hope everyone is enjoying their tv. I currently have an issue with not being able to change the offsets in my service menu. I posted the issue in the calibration section Service Menu Help for Panny TC-P54Z1. I'm trying to figure out if this is a problem with just my tv or did Panny lock us Z1 owners out this portion of the service menu? If anyone needs access to their service menu, PM me with your email and I'll send you a copy of the Tech Training and Service manuals.
I just had my Z1 calibrated by a Geek Squad calibration expert and I kind of wished I hadn't. The guy seemed to know what he was doing but then again the Z1 did kind of throw him. I doubt he had calibrated a Z1 before.
What I'm wondering is since he calibrated the "Custom" picture setting, would any of his work affect the other picture settings? It seems as if it did! I think I'd like it set back to the way it was before the calibration, the way it came from the factory. Can that be done?

Do you recall what threw him about the Z1? Also, did he use any of the two service modes? If so, do you remember which one? The Tuner Service Mode has a blue background for the menu settings and the Display Service Mode has a green background.
If you want to reset to factory settings, you need to go into the "self check and forced to factory setting" mode. Here's how you do it. Unplug the AC cord to exit.
"Produce TV reception screen, and while pressing [VOLUME ( - )] button on the Display unit, press [MENU] button on the RF remote control for more than 3 seconds."
**Caution** You will lose all changes and you will have to re-register your remote control to the tuner. Re-registering is easy, just follow the directions in your owners manual.
