I just bought a Panasonic VIERA TC-P55ST60 from FutureShop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was the last 55" they had so I was happy as the 60" was too big and expensive and the 50" was too small!
Anyway, I turned the TV on and it worked fine for maybe 20 minutes then it randomly turned off and the red power LED was blinking 8 times over and over. I unplugged it and restarted it and it worked again, I ran the software update and around the same time (10-15 minutes) it turned off again.
I left it off for a long time.. maybe 1.5-2 hours before turning it back on and this time it seemed to work for 4 hours before turning off randomly and blinking once again 8 times over and over.
I'm a bit exhausted on trying to self-fix this via menu options or what not so I think I got a lemon. I'm really disappointed as I've read such fantastic reviews on the ST60 series :(
Anyone know what's wrong with it? I havent even enjoyed it for half a day and it's already broken - I'm thinking of returning it to FutureShop and just getting another LED TV. I was really set on this screen but now I am worried even if I get a new one that it won't last me beyond the 1 year warranty Panasonic provides.
Any suggestions/Ideas? thanks! :D
