"You want to fix a plasma? What's a plasma?"

Anyone else agree with the non risky part of this?

Is pixel orbiter on? If so, switch it off and see if t makes a difference.

amercnchopz34 repete's advice is good. Switch to THX Mode. It will turn orbiter off and help you debug.

If you find out the build date please let us know - we are just trying to figure out how many ZT's were manufactured!

Just picked up a 65ZT60 and mine is this:

The manufacturers don't stockpile a lot of spare parts and the supply usually dries up within a year or two.

And in Panasonic's warranty terms they reserve the right to either Repair, Replace, or Refund your purchase price of the TV at their discretion. Better hope your panel module doesn't fail during the warranty because they'll most likely just issue you a check.

The plasma factories in Asia were shuttered at the end of 2013 but the North American units are assembled in Tijuana so you must have one of the last units manufactured.

Wow! Take a breath for a sec. Nowhere in your posts have you mentioned that this buzz is audible with normal viewing. If you've been running slides the last couple of days and all of a sudden you hear a buzz- it doesn't necessarily mean your set has become defective. Let it cool down for a couple of hours. After that, try it with normal programming watching hockey or movies/ tv shows with a lot of white scenes in the background and calmly assess it then.

My previous ST50 had buzzing when I consistently run slides on it 24-7 the first couple of days but never was an issue after that.

Should be the same settings for the ZT60 since they Vt and ZT share the same panel

Hi just brought home my 60ZT60 last week my sequential number is A11454 and my serial number is M32180330 which I believe is gives it a build date of aug 6 2013. No panel separation issues, no fan noise, no banding issues. Really happy I got a NIB tv this late with limited supply.

Congratulations & Enjoy

Thank you - All ZT's were made in one factory in Japan which was the only one with an autoclave capable of attaching the Studio Master Panel, which eliminates the air space normally found between the plasma pixels and the screen’s glass front. This production ceased in December 2013.

The exact date of manufacture can be determined by the first four numbers of the serial number which represents the the year and the next three the day of the year - I'm MK3191 which means 2013 - July 10th - 191st day of the year, Serial # MK3290 is October 17th. 290 day of the year - Panel A12650

Reviewing your serial number will confirm the exact date of manufacture - these are the #''s of panels made in December 2013:

A16781 – December 4 - 65ZT60
A16796 – December

Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 - Oppo BDP-103D - Panasonic DMP-BDT220 - Toshiba HD-DVD-3A - OPPO DV-981HD - Harmony 880
Onkyo TX-NR809 --- Definitive Technology - Studio Monitor 65 (2) - CS8040HD - Studio Monitor 45 (2) - Super Cube 6000

It was only after buying the ZT60 that I realized my Kuro was louder. Can't hear the ZT60 at all unless there is nary a peep in the room and it's a bright white screen.

It might be your screen settings. Screen format should be "JUST", H size should be "1" and Overscan [probably] should be "OFF". Verify those settings and check back in.

Selfmade, if the buzz is bothering you, I wouldn't hesitate to try and get it fixed. But I'm not sure it will fix the occasional buzz your having. I just had my fan fix done and I talked to the technician before he came about the occasional buzz and he said he will contact panasonic to see if there is a fix. He did say sometimes the screws are a little loose on the mother board. When he arrived he was very nice and knowledgable. He said panasonic does not have a fix for he buzz except for the loose screws. He checked them and I can tell you that they were loose. He tightened them up while performing the fan fix. The fan is much quieter, not 100% sure that occasional buzz is gone because I thought I heard it yesterday. I will check it more later today to be sure I heard it. The buzz does seem to be more of an electrical buzz than I vibration of the board. And if it was a loose board, I would think it would vibrate all the time. Anyway, don't stress over the micro fractures. If you have a tech come out just pull up the bulliten from the micro fracture thread and show the tech. He will be sure to reinstall the back correctly like mine did (I hope).

I think that the January 10, 2014 build date post was an April Fools joke.

Just to be clear, the A numbers are the serial numbers for the panel itself right ? But the MK number is the serial number for the complete TV and also determines the date of final assembly? How are you getting build dates from the A numbers without also showing the MK number?

Yes - The A number is the sequence/panel number

Some folks included the build date from the rear panel with their A# (sequence number) rather then the serial number.

As you can also see some did not say if it was a 60" or 65".

We are really just trying to find out how many panels were made (highest panel/sequence#)

The sticker on the back of the TV only gives the month the TV was assembled so it's not actually a "build date" that tells the actual date of assembly.

I understand that, i was just wondering how you were arriving at specific dates like July 10th and July 29th and August 6th but not showing the associated MK serial number that those specific assembly dates were derived from.

The plasma panels themselves were manufactured in Japan but the ZTs were assembled in Mexico along with all the other models, and the Mexico plant was shut down in the first few days of December and TV assembly ended right there.

Presumably the last plasma panel modules were made in November or October as it takes a few weeks to ship them from Japan to Mexico for final assembly into the TV.

The sticker on the back of the TV only gives the month the TV was assembled so it's not actually a "build date" that tells the actual date of assembly.
I understand that, i was just wondering how you were arriving at specific dates like July 10th and July 29th and August 6th but not showing the associated MK serial number that those specific assembly dates were derived from.

I always include the formula (see above) so many folks send the actual date without their serial #

Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 - Oppo BDP-103D - Panasonic DMP-BDT220 - Toshiba HD-DVD-3A - OPPO DV-981HD - Harmony 880
Onkyo TX-NR809 --- Definitive Technology - Studio Monitor 65 (2) - CS8040HD - Studio Monitor 45 (2) - Super Cube 6000

Thank you - All ZT's were made in one factory in Japan which was the only one with an autoclave capable of attaching the Studio Master Panel, which eliminates the air space normally found between the plasma pixels and the screen’s glass front. This production ceased in December 2013.

The exact date of manufacture can be determined by the first four numbers of the serial number which represents the the year and the next three the day of the year - I'm MK3191 which means 2013 - July 10th - 191st day of the year, Serial # MK3290 is October 17th. 290 day of the year - Panel A12650

Reviewing your serial number will confirm the exact date of manufacture - these are the #''s of panels made in December 2013:

A16781 – December 4 - 65ZT60
A16796 – December

It's not an April Fool's day joke. My serial number begins with MK4010 and it states January 2014 on the sticker on the back of the TV.

Wow, that's very interesting. Are you in North America? If so, maybe the Mexican plant had a surplus of very expensive ZT panel modules and made one last assembly run in January to use them all up. MK4010 would be Jan 10th right? The Panasonic insider over at HDJ posted on Dec 3rd that production on all models had ended.
