post #8491 of 8528
My 54" G25 is about 2 1/2 years old and suddenly now starts turning itself off (with a click sound, power light goes out) shortly after turning it on. When this happens you can't turn it back on right away with either the remote or the side panel power button. After a about a minute you hear a click and then you can turn it back on. Has anyone had this happen to theirs? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Protection relay circuit. Dunno wut is tripping it.
post #8493 of 8528
Thanks peepr! It turned out the power cord was not securely plugged into the back of the set. Not sure how or when it got loose as it has retention latches and you can't really get to the back of it. Happy camper again!

I really love this TV!!!

I just switched on our lightly used P50G25 in the basement and I have a red vertical pixel line on the left side of the screen at all times, and alternating red and green lines evenly spaced which intermittently disappear across the rest of the screen. I purchased via Amazon about 2.5 years ago and am pretty sure I don't have an extended warranty. Does anyone have a guess as to the extent of this fix? Am I better off just saving up for a new set? I loved the picture on this set and really don't want to spend $$ for a 2ndary set, but we do need one down here from time to time.

Thanks in advance for your advice and guidance.

My G20 started turning itself off and then turns on again (restarts). Sometimes it get caught in a loop.

The weird thing is that it only seems to happen when watching TV from the tuner (DVB-C).
If I watch movies on my wdtv it doesn't happen.
Also I sometimes get 1 second of black screen watching tv and the sound is missing.

What is wrong?
post #8496 of 8528
I recently changed the underground cable from the street to my house. Could it be that the signal is too strong for the tuner?
When I watch TV through my cable box (connected to HDMI) the tv works fine. It is only when I use the DVB-C tuner in the TV that I have problems.
post #8497 of 8528
I don't think the tuner is going to turn your tv on. Are you certain that it is shutting all the way down? Could it be that the tv is not detecting a signal?

Not sure what it is but this evening when I hit the viera cast button I was told there is a new firmware that needed to be downloaded. I now have 3.75. Any one know what it does? No mention on their website. I haven't had one since 2010.
post #8499 of 8528
Does anyone know how I can reset the password for a G25 in the Service Menu? Thanks!

Update: Did some searching and found out how to do a factory reset within the Service Menu.

Hi all. My mother in law has a Panasonic 54g20 that has recently developed a vertical colored line 1 or 2 pixels wide from top to bottom just left of the center of the scree. this problem exists on all inputs. Anyone out there know what might be the cause of this?

I just bought an Xbox One and it has three options for color. Does the 54g20 support color depth over 24 bits per pixel?
post #8504 of 8528
The TV supports Deep Color but I don’t think it matters.
post #8505 of 8528
Has anyone calibrated their tv for use with Xbox One? I've tried using the built in calibration stuff Microsoft included but it's really rough on my eyes. I have good vision but it's difficult to read stuff, especially on COD:Ghosts. If any of you have a good calibration can you share settings please.
post #8506 of 8528
I live in the U.S. and I'm curious if the Panasonic G25 can display PAL formatted video, currently mine won't but not sure if there is a setting that I could change to allow it to. Can anyone who owns this TV play PAL video on theirs? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
post #8507 of 8528
I'm not sure if it is a function of the player or not, but I had a copy of Life (from Amazon UK) that I could not play on anything but my projector. I didn't have the g25 at the time, but it would play on my friend's v10, so I suspect it could play 25p if the player would send it.

What are you using to play it? I think he had a Panasonic bd player. I have never had a problem playing anything else from Amazon uk. Currently I'm using a cheap lg 3d player, it seems better at playing beat up Netflix discs than my Panasonic 220 or PS3.

I need to replace an A Board on my Viera G20 54 inch Plasma and have been holding out for a decently priced part. A really good deal popped up in my area for the same set in the 50 inch model and I was thinking about buying it to harvest the part. The part numbers are very close and upon closer inspection the boards themselves look identical in every way. Does anyone know if the 50 inch board will work in the 54 inch television?

post #8509 of 8528
Well she's dead now. Wife said it shut off while she was watching it and now I get the 10 blinks of death.
post #8510 of 8528
My 50" GT25 also died on me recently and was blinking 10 times. Internet research told me it was most likely the SC board. I had it looked at by a repair guy and he confirmed this. He wants $450 to get it repaired. That's too much for my blood. With the floating blacks that this set had, I'll just junk it and hopefully get a vt60.
post #8511 of 8528
I'm going to fix mine and it looks like the boards aren't that hard to isolate or expensive to replace, I'm budgeting about $200-250 even if I have to replace the SS and the SC board. They're plug in parts. I've had a VT60 65" since last Saturday and other than being bigger it's not really better. Too green so far and faces that look like clay on close ups. Also gray instead of white on full white backgrounds, some magenta fringing and lots of green push. I think with some work it might come around but my G25 didn't need anything but THX and Cinema depending on input to be near perfect. Colors were way better, blacks were almost as good. I'm really glad I've still got mine!

Mine was a 54" btw.

That doesn't sound right. If color adjustment isn't off, then maybe it's the source material. What are you feeding it.

 

Do you have thread about the VT60 problems?

I helped my brother buy and hang a TCP50G20 and a TCP50GT30. Those are across town. I own a TH-46pz850u, which is the 2008 high end version of the VT60.

Have spent some time with a VT60?

Not really ... I saw it in the Magnolia Room a while back.

 

My point is ... VT60 series in the top of the line for that year. With all the Panasonic plasmas that I own or have setup ... I know they only get better ... as you go up the yearly model chain or as they get newer ... not worse.

 

So, I wonder what it's being feed and how (HDMI, etc.)? Have they tried a new movie Blu-Ray directly connected to HDMI input?

Personal preference and numbers don't necessarily agree. I preferred the GT50 over the VT50- the VT was dimmer. I don't think there's anything wrong with Yeti's tv. Out of the box, the VT60 doesn't look as good as his G25 and the reasons he state are most likely correct- it needs adjustment/calibration. None of these tvs are at their best out of the box, but that doesn't mean that some people aren't satisfied with them that way either.

The same exact things I was feeding the G25 which is mostly HDMI from a media PC with streaming Netflix, Amazon, OTA HDTV from a SIlicon Dust tuner . DVDs look stunning and Blu-ray is pretty good. Still playing with settings but I never had to with my G25. The impressions I had immediatly were flicker on white screens, white screens too gray, and pasty green look to some faces in close up. BTW my wife seems to agree, which is not always the case, :-)

Yes, a 54" it died right after Christmas with the 10 blinks of death at 39 months of age. I'm going to if it, especially now that I've soent some time with my VT60. My G25 is a great TV.

It is a great tv, but I think you're going to love the VT just as much once you get her settings to your liking. wink.gif
