By the way I lived in West Burke Vt. for a few years when I was younger I left when I was 14 years old. My younger sister still lives there.

Thanks again

I have a TC-P55ST60 which I bought 18 months ago, it's developed a 3-4 inch wide vertical black bar, I am not pleased. I did not buy an extended warranty. After doing some research it seems the problem is likely the "c boards" that are attached to the ribbon cables on the bottom of the display. $22 on eBay got me new ones. I should only have to replace the one that lines up with my vertical bar. Fingers crossed. If it doesn't work I've got a $1300 paperweight. [emoji53]

BTW it's a PITA to get the back off of these TVs, and be careful, the metal edges are as sharp as razors.

Thanks!! Learn something new all the time!

Hi all,
I plan to swap the mainboard on my Panasonic plasma tx-p50ST60,I'd like to change it for mainboard from german model tx-p50STW60 (it is the same model as ST60 with added dvb-s tuner), but I only found mainboard from 42" model. What do you think it happens after swapping mainboard from smaller to bigger tv?

Sadly, changing the c-board didn't help with my issue. So it's a defective panel. I'm pretty bummed about it. Replaced with a Samsung UN55H7150 which seems pretty good so far.

Managed top get a buyer on Craigslist for $140, I assume he's parting it out. At least I get a little money for it.

Joining the club boys and gals, better late than never, decided to pick up a 55" ST60 for the bedroom, what an awesome tv it is. I can see the improvement over my GT50. Slighter better blacks, crisper, and motion as well. Shame it was the last year plasma models were produced from Panasonic. Thought about getting a 4K but they all have crappy blacks, uniformity, clouding and so on.

I will upgrade by end of this year or early next year with OLED 4K most likely. Aesthetically I prefer the look of the GT50 though and wish it had a THX mode also, regardless, what a gorgeous picture it has, truly fantastic.

Congrats! Did not know there were any more 55" ST60 units in the wild to pick up.

Thank you, it wasn't brand new but it only had 650 hrs on it and got it for a steal of a price, couldn't pass it up. Very happy.

Kind of curious what you paid? I am looking at a used 60ST60, the guy is asking $1100, seems kind of high, my thought was around the 600-800 range, but then again, maybe I am out of touch with used plasma TV prices.
