Post the hours on your Plasma

Wanted to make a thread where users can post the hours they have on there plasma so we can get an idea of what time we have left with these great displays. Post the model number and if tv has ever been repaired to keep it going. Use this article to check the hours. If your model is not covered in this article google is your friend.

I'll go first
1. Panasonic TC-P65VT60 6300 hrs no repairs
2. Samsung PNC63C7000 12500 hrs (no pink banding) no repairs
3. Panasonic TH-50PX75U 14500 hrs(estimate my son has it now) no repairs
4. Panasonic TH-50PZ85U 5600 hrs Power supply board replaced at 4900 hrs
5. Panasonic TC-P65VT25 14900 hrs. SC board repaired at 14900 hrs. Sold TV
6. Panasonic TC-P50GT30 14600 hrs. SC board repaired at 14600 hrs.

I have the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65GT30 65-Inch: 8744.40 Hours (Count: 3579)


The TV works great, but once it's been on for a couple of hours, I can hear a very light constant clicking (fast clicking) sound coming from the left of the TV. Maybe it's on its last legs. Oh well, it lasted for 5+ years.


Cheers,

Interesting. GT30's are famous for bad SC board. Doesn't sound like that issue. Great thing about these TVs is they are pretty easy to fix if you like DIY.

I have no data to back it up but it seems like Samsung has more failures than Panasonic. Looking through Bad Caps forum it seems there are more Samsung's. Panasonic has a lot though too.

Id say that Samsung has a higher failure rate with it's plasmas, as a general truism.

2007 Panasonic's seem to be pretty reliable. Built like a tank. I've got one on my list still going strong.

It's the number of times the TV has been powered on.

Thumbs up

Pioneer PDP-5070HD, Sept. 2006, started as main display, now Master Bedroom TV


Pioneer PDP-5080HD was a discounted BB floor model in 2008 for Basement Man-cave TV


Both displays are still used almost daily.

The 5080 shared home theater duty with a 10k+ hour projector
(Epson 1080UB) for the last 8 years)

I've never had any repairs on any of my gear.

I own an LG 60" plasma and would like to join this conversation…but I have never kept any kind of record on how many hours are on the set. I do know it spent a whole year on almost all of the time, but again the hours were never clocked. I have heard that plasma TV's were headed "fast & furious" toward extinction…I love the color saturation on my plasma, but to my untrained eye the 47" LED TV in my bedroom looks equally bright and sharp.

Many of you seem to know down to the 1/10th of an hour how many your set has clocked…is there some sort of "time keeper" function on the TV that will help identify the hours used (and, conversely, perhaps the hours "left")?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

With your Samsung remote and the screen off, hit 1-8-2-mute-power and the technician's screen will come up. Scroll down to Service, enter, and the panel hours will display.

What model#?
I dont think the Kuro models came out until 2007.

My 2006 Pio was a non Kuro 5070.
My 2008 Pio was a 5080 Kuro.

Last time I checked our old Samsung HP-s5053 (circa 2006) had almost 59000 hours on it, that was about a year ago. I don't check it much because going into the service menu resets all the picture settings back to default. It got relegated to the bedroom sometime back and gets used mainly for gaming these days.

Repaired once at @ 1year due to the sparkling issue those sets had. New panel and various boards.

Cheers

Panasonic TC-P50V10 19650 hrs 8082 count. Never been serviced and the only issue is an occasional buzzing sound during bright images.

64" Samsung F8500 has 5552 hours and no issues after 25 months despite dire warnings from 'concerned' forum members of units purchased from non-authorized dealers. Tonight's panel temp reading after 3 hours is 36C. Before mounting it on wall added 2 low profile fans which I'm convinced improves longevity.
