Well maybe once you replace your board it will get fixed, good luck.

Cross posting this question with the Samsung F8500 thread.

My Panny 65GT50 died a tragic death by flying toy yesterday. So I'm looking. Has anyone directly compared the Samsung F8500 with this GT50 tv? I was set to keep my Panny for many more years, I just loved it. I can't stand the LED/LCD TVs I see, so it's either buy the Samsung F8500 while I still can, or buy a cheap LCD to tide me over until OLED prices come down.

I just can't imagine owning something other than a plasma right now. They look so much better than everything else available. I feel like it's a no-brainer on the Samsung, just don't want to get my hopes up. I felt spoiled by the GT50.

If you buy another GT50, buy as long an extended warranty as you can.

I'd love another GT50, just tell me where. I have a 5-year warranty on mine now. Doesn't help when a kid's toy cracked the screen. But outside of an accident like that, I agree.

That really sucks , it's not the first time I heard that, kids will be kids. Check if you're house insurance covers it, if you own your home. If not the F8500 is your only option unless you can find a used Panasonic.

I'm having 2 recent new issues with apps. Number 1 is Netflix can't connect, and I see that they're going to be issuing a new Netflix version for the 4K Panasonic TV, but that's not this TV. I tried de authorization and still can't connect. The error message says it can't connect to the backend followed by a long IP address.The other thing is, is that more often than not Amazon comes up error 900. It says to try again and after doing so it usually comes up. These are new things that started going on the past couple days. Panasonic on Twitter suggested recycling my modem which I did. Afterward I could still have the Amazon 900 error. Other couple apps I use a lot seem to be working fine YouTube and Vudu. Any ideas?

No ideas on how to solve. But I have been having the same problem of inability to connect to Netflix since Oct. 26 (two days ago). It just suddenly started. I have a workaround of using my DVD player (also Panasonic) to receive Netflix, but would like to get the TV app working again!

Any help would be appreciated.

NetFlix started working again late yesterday morning. The Amazon app is intermittent with the 900 error.

Note: My Roku had no issues connecting to either.

I called Netflix support (which I should have done in the first place, I guess). They told me to power off the TV with the remote, and then unplug it from the power outlet for at least 10 seconds, then fire it back up again. It worked! Apparently the Netflix app gets bogged down after a while, and this clears the cache to enable it to run properly again.

I still, like many on here think this is a wonderful plasma.. I have th 60" GT50 and Love it.. I feel it blows away all of current LCD/LED eye-bleeders and looks the most natural.. What is the life expectancy of these things? I have had mine since June of 2012.....I have an extended warranty on it until June of 2015.....just curious.. but it has been great.. I too would have to wait until the OLED's come down in price.. although i have heard rumors that the Panny high-end 4k LED's supposedly have plasma like blacks and pics.. i would have to see it to beleiev it.. i love my Panny Plasma. and these people that tell me the LED's are better are crazy IMO.. especially when i have someone over for movies. they are like WOW, and they never want to go back to LED's... LOL!!!!!

Mike, I totally agree with you. I have the same size GT50 and, like you, hope it lasts until the next generation of TV's come down in price. I love my plasma!

I enjoy my plasma 60" GT50 every second (almost 11 000 hours in 2 and a half years) and only waiting for 77" OLED in 2 or 3 years at $5000 to put it in another room

I have a GT50 also. Love it as well. I don't think Panasonic or any manufacturer could ever make an LCD good enough to rival a Plasma. FALD sets still have viewing angle issues inherent with LCD's. Your next generation TV purchase should be an OLED if you want anything as good as your GT50.

Completely agree on this. My next tv will be an OLED 4K, no doubt about it. LCD' still have their issues. OLED is the only upgrade worthy enough.

Just picked up a 50" off craigslist this morning and I'm already loving this thing. Does anyone happen to know how interchangeable stands / bases are for these Panny's, as it was included in the sale (ie: VT, GT, ST, UT, and XT, or between 50, 55, 60, and 65).

I did a little research and realized the part numbers don't match up either way.

On a side note I've noticed on solid screens I have a very thin vertical line on the right side of the screen. Any one have a similar problem? It's only noticeable on bright solid screens. After some research I've read it could be due to a bad solder connection? The only thing is that this is a very thin line whereas most of what I have seen have had very thick lines.

I don't mind trying to put a little money into this as I got it so cheap.

Watched The Equalizer the other night and I noticed the black letterbox bars were flashing and displayed what looked like blooming in dark scenes. It was very distracting. I rented another copy of it and it was still there. I tried different movies and so far I cannot recreate it. But it is there with The Equalizer every time. Has anyone experienced this problem before? Is this a sign that the HDMI port is starting to die? I have had my Panny 55" GT50 for about 2 years. I love the TV but I can't watch this blooming letterbox bar thingy because I have a keen eye for uniformity issues and what not and I won't be able to ignore it. I have a hard time believing that it is the bluray disk causing this but I am also confounded that other movies don't display this issue. Although I have only tried a few. I will keep trying more. In the communities experience, historically speaking, has this been an issue with the TV or the source material?

^^^ Can you post which scenes you're seeing this on. Maybe the time markers. I'll take a look for you on my 65VT60 but from what I can remember I didn't see anything like you described.

There are a few places in the film where this is noticeable but the time stamp I can definitely see it at is from 1:45:00 on. The last action sequence in the "Home Depot" location is rich with this blooming because it is mostly dark. Its almost as though the movie was intended to be 16:9 full screen but was formatted to 2:25:1 and the bottom and top of the scene is bleeding through the black bars. Again, I have tried several other movies and still have not seen this anywhere else. And I am watching like a hawk. If its just this movie than I guess I can call it a win. Although I love this movie and for me its unwatchable.

Nope, all good on my VT60. Maybe some one here with a GT50 can take another look....

Does anyone else use a PS3 as their BluRay player?

I recently purchased a home theater system and I'm having issues hooking up the PS3 to the receiver. I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-44. I'm not able to display 1080p and the PS3 is not detecting a 3D player. I have no issues with the PS3 hooked up directly to my GT65. I spoke with someone at Pioneer and he mentioned it's possibly an HDCP issue. There doesn't seem to be any setting on the PS3 to turn this off. I'm wondering if others here have had similar issues.

I'm not sure if the issue is the PS3 or the AVR. I've played around with the HDMI cables but no difference.

Thanks!

Update: Was notified a setting on the PS3 to disable and now everything works!
