post #8251 of 8439
i dont even know what an ssid is. i did buy the exact same router brand and model that died on me. it worked for like 10 years so i know its reliable.

this one

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BTL0OA/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00

i just put new router cd in computer and followed the steps. i named the new router account the same as the old one, i also used the same key (password) for internet security as the old router though.

wifi didnt work.

so then i called panasonic the next day and by panasonic having me reboot the tv i was able to connect to the internet. but had to do initial setup, video audio settings etc. again

The SSID is what you see on your device when you try to connect to a wireless access point. Based on what you said you probably had the same SSID. I suspect that the TV is associating the SSID and the MAC address, which is unique for each router.

I have seen the same thing happen on my iPhone, but the problem can be fixed by "forgetting" the wifi network and then reconnecting to the wifi network. It sounds like the ST30's can't forget a wifi network without clearing everying.

I use wired ethernet, but I did use wifi for a few months when I first got the TV.

i think you hit the nail on the head there. i just hope if someone has the same problem i had they know what to do now. thanks for your post about ssid mac address etc. i understand a little bit more about home theater every day reading this forum.
post #8254 of 8439
Yeah, I would hate to have to restore all the TV settings manually. The only issue with a new SSID is that all your other wifi devices have to join the new network, which is probably not a big deal.
post #8255 of 8439
damn it. ever since my tv was reset in order to connect to new router now theres something else wrong. on some shows it looks like the image is zoomed in. but i have it set to full as well as direct tv set to widescreen etc. also when i use watch a youtube video on the tv youtube app the videos are definitely zoomed in. anyone know how to fix this?
post #8256 of 8439
Yesterday I had a tech do the A-Board swap. Last night while watching TV, I got an error where my tv turned off, came back on several seconds later with the message "An error has been detected and recovered."

WTF?

Has anyone else seen this? Google just comes up with 2007 models.

Depending on the material I am watching, it can be there through-out over half the movie, maybe more. All depends on the material. Anything with grey or beige, sometimes white backgrounds, the pink sticks out the most. Sometimes in commercials with a white background it's really bad. Pink sides and green/yellow middle. Kind of strange in that the dividing lines on the sides appear to correspond with the area that is the line for 4:3 material such as when it's pillarboxed. Oddly, the letterboxes from non-HD content don't leave any retention image. Going to call Panasonic over the next couple weeks and look into what I can have done.
Any other Canadians had their ST30 fixed or replaced under warranty due to the pink/green/yellow issue?

I'm not Canadian, but I got 2 different opinions on the issue, and was told that I was being too picky/"that's how plasma's are"

So you have the issue? Who gave you the opinions that you were being too picky? I don't believe wanting a white screen to be all white and not yellow/green in the middle, and to not have pink sides with grey or beige/tan scenes is not being picky.

I just picked up some 3d glasses from sainsonic.com for $19.99 each and so far am pretty satisfied with them. They were for my wife and daughter and while the coverage of the lenses is probably just a tad too small for my large head and big eyes, they seem to do well for them. Very lightweight as well. Quality is good and seem to hold a good charge. For the price, they can't be beat. Only con is that they ship from China and it took about 3 weeks for them to arrive.
post #8262 of 8439
I too have been enjoying my Sainsonic glasses. For the price and performance they would be hard to beat.

I have an issue I was hoping folks here could help with. My wireless adapter has suddenly stopped working. I can connect via wired connection, but can no longer connect via the wireless adapter. Chatted with the Panasonic tech folks and they wanted me to do a service reset via the power/menu buttons. I didn't want to do that yet as I didn't want to lose all of my custom settings, so I thought I would check here and see if anyone had any other hints as to how to troubleshoot my problem.
post #8263 of 8439
I own a TC-P50ST30 may 2011 build with and updated firmware to address the fluctuating brightness issue.

In cinema mode (all set to default except for noise reduction set to off) my image is just too dark when watching any HDMI source. I was playing around with the color temperature and realized that the issue occurs only with the warm 2 settings. Going to warm 1 makes the image much brighter and I'm not understanding the logic behind that.

I'm seriously starting to think my panel is defective. Can anyone try to switch between warm 1 and 2 and see if it affects brightness like my panel? Or does someone have an explanation for this weird issue or feature maybe...

Cinema warm 2



Cinema warm 1




I have done a factory reset before posting all pictures

Nevermind........it has suddenly come back by itself.

I can now see P90X across the bottom of my screen. It has been on there for about 2 days. Should I run the break in slides? Or use the scrolling bar.? I tried playing the PS3 music player that flashes the different colors. That didn't seem to do anything.

Well Image Retention is still there, somewhat faded but still present. I am going to go ahead and call it slight burn in. Should of faded by now.

Use an all white screen with high contrast

O.K. Thanks, should I do it on vivid with 100% bright and 100% contrast? Should I put the tv on High panel brightness? The white line going across the TV hasn't done much for it.

Got a question for st30 owners.
I have had my TV for almost a year now. However, recently I have begun to notice a greener color to some scenes that have grayscales such as fog and shadowy scenes.

The best way I can show it is if I put up a grayscale from the avshd709 disk there is green bands going top to bottom at certain shades of gray. Depending on brightness and other calibrations they will shift from left to right.

I have tried this through a HTPC, USB drive to the side, and a burnt dvd. All have the same effect. However, on the HTPC if I bring it to another monitor it does not show this problem. So I am almost 100% sure its something with the TV.

I calibrated grayscale using 10point measurements and was able to get them all under a delta of 5. However the problem still exists.

It is very subtle and most people would call me crazy for even pointing it out... I feel like everyone here would understand my concern though. biggrin.gif

It doesn't seem to show up on any slides of solid color, at least at 5% intervals, so I don't think its the green blob problem other people have mentioned.

Has this been documented anywhere else? Anyone hear about this type of behavior? Any suggestions on what to do?

Thanks.

Call Panasonic and have somebody come and look at it.

I have a similar issue and what I believe is an odd coincidence (because it's always been that way and it's not from too much 4:3 content)...the green/yellow area is only in much of the 4:3 area of the screen and it's always been that way. I notice it on white, grey and beige/tan (desert) scenes. Also, the sides can appear somewhat pink, most visible during gray scenes. I emailed Panasonic Canada and they mentioned I have a 30 day grace period. I'll be calling them again referencing that email, since I'm just a few days outside of a year now.

Give Panasonic a call and have somebody check it out if you can.
post #8270 of 8439
BTW ...if I keep this set or have it repaired or replaced, does anybody know if the 3D glasses are still available?

Are there other options still available for the ST30? Aftermarket?
What about the PS3 Sony TDG BR50 3D glasses? Do they work well?

I may be experiencing something similar. Have you also noticed any red banding along with it? I made a thread recently regarding something that I was noticing with brightness and blacks, and after play around some more with my htpc and some tools that can adjust gamma, I've begun to conclude that the gamma at lower ire's has risen. When I boost gamma at lower ire's it seems to fix the banding issue. I've only done some eyeballing as I loaned out my D3, but I'm beginning to suspect that either my A board is going bad or that these TV's are programmed to make some sort of adjustment after you get so many hours on them. Read my thread if you want more detail about what I noticed initially.

I have been using these, http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-TY-EW3D3MU-Active-Shutter-Eyewear/dp/B0058SYDTI .
Check ebay. lots of cheap used ones.


I am going to get together 5 or so good examples and give Panasonic a call. Going to set myself up to show multiple sources as well. Hopefully whoever comes out will side with me.

Thanks, I've seen those. With the uncertainty I have regarding this set, I'm trying to save some cash when I "test" the 3D. I see PS3 3D glasses for sale for quite cheap. I suspect people get the 3D glasses and small 24" 3D screen for 3D gaming and then lose interest in the affect on such a small screen. I could be wrong.

Make sure whatever tech comes out is not colour blind. There are types of colour blindness that prevent people from seeing pink, so the pink tinting on the side won't be noticed by them. Also could affect the visibility of the green/yellow issue. Check some colour blind tests online and have one ready for the tech to do when they are at your place.
post #8274 of 8439
Alright, got my appointment made. Also figured out the best way to show the problem.
If I reduce the color setting to 0, making everything black and white, certain shades still show up green.

I have had several people look at it and tell me they can see exactly what I am talking about.

Hopefully I won't have to give the tech an eye exam.

It sounds like it could be a combination of grayscale calibration issues and uniformity.

The delta errors on my 65ST30 are at or just under 1.5. However, my set still has some very, very slight pink and green uniformity blotches - but there are extremely subtle and not really an issue.. They are not visible on any IRE grayscale test pattern I used; however, if looking for them, they can be barely seen on black and white content.
post #8276 of 8439
I fairly certain, although not positive, that it isn't the green and pink blotches many threads have discussed. The easiest way I can show this is when hooked up to my computer, If i take a scene that shows green tint to certain parts of grey, I can move the image around and it still remains on the same spots on the image.
post #8277 of 8439
Hey I don't think anybody still looks here, but I got a question that's been frusturating me.

What is Side by Side 3D? If you push the 3D button, then the red button and select side by side 3D, it seemingly places both side by side images on top of eachother. Yet when I use a polarized traditional 3D movie glasses, nothing effects it.

Is there no way to do splitscreen 3D on this TV? Using this method:

You need to check your information. What made you think those 3D glasses would work with this panel? You need Active Shutter Infared Glasses such as THESE.
post #8279 of 8439
I find that 3D glasses that came with the package from Amazon in summer 2011 can't sync further than maybe 10 feet. This is an issue because it's my bedroom set so if I'm watching sitting up against my wall on my bed, they go out of sync. Which is why I haven't even bothered with 3D in 18 months.
post #8280 of 8439
My xpand 103s do just fine at 10-12 ft range.
