post #1351 of 1376
Hi guys! I have a plasma Tv Panasonic 42PV80(Brasil ) = 42PX80(USA) shows some kind of colored lines at the TV's borders. The pics below shows the line you see when you come close to a 42's TV around 0.3 meters with a camera with its macro on. Is it normal to plasma or its a TV model problem, since other guys are having it too?












P.S: Sorry for my bad english.

I have a th-50PHD6uY plasma with the extra slot. I want to install a DVI board (TY-42TM6d). Currently there is slot 1 open.
Isn't that the slot that the DVI board must be installed in? I also have the composite/component board and the PC input that I'm using. What are the rules on where they can go? I tried reading the other posts, but they are confusing. Thanks.

Hi,

i'm also looking to find a Full HD 40-42 inch screen.
Now I've found a promotion with the THD-42PF82 for a nice price and 5 years warranty. But I can't find any information about this type. With what version can i compare it? The PZ80? 85?

I hope that there are some people who can help me out.
and by the way, is a 5 year warranty something worth thinking about or is it more of a salles trick?

Greetz.
N.

PS Forgive me for my terrible englisch..

five months ago i purchased a TH-50PZ700A Panasonic plasma Viera tv unit. After several hours of use it has this terrible hot smell coming out of it, there dosnt seem to be any problem with the set apart from the smell, it gets that strong that it gives me a headache, has anybody had this problem.

Well, there's two possibilities:
- You have a component burning out. That means the set will eventually fail.
- Something fell into the set and is burning. That may or may not cause a problem in the long run (depends what it was and what it fell onto).

Either way you may want to have it checked out.

I just got my 46 inch Pz80 and I noticed something very strange. I put all settings on 50 for the break-in period and I noticed that after 30 mins I was motion sick. Also all images look a little blurry when moving. I tried a DVD, HD TV, SD TV, different cables, HDMI and composit. Also tried different settings with no luck. It still happens. The tv is only 6 hours old but it is very strange and hard to watch. However the images with little movement look great. I sit about 10ft away.

Any ideas what this could be or what I can do?

Cheat Sheet - Panasonic Plasma 2010 Consumer Model Summary
* In contradistinction to the Professional models

I don't understand why it is so hard to just find a nice concise SUMMARY of all Panny models. So instead of kvetching about it here is a quick summary in case anyone is trying to sort out all the various models and how they are different.

Q. How/Where do I check the manufacture/build date?
* Its on a sticker attached to the back of the plasma. (Thanks Guerillah)
* You can check the date without opening the box. Just pull out the gray tab on the back of the box (it secures the stand) and shine a flashlight up in there. (Thanks MakoCSH)

Q. How does the S2 compare to the G25?
A. TL;DR The consensus is that the G25 has better PQ then the S2, along with THX and a tad higher price.

Q. Are floating blacks still an issue?
A. Yes, with the 2010 consumer models and pre 2009 models. *sigh*. V25 is not as bad as the G20/G25.
One of the common test scenes is "The Matrix" blu-ray -- where Trinity is running from the agents; she rolls down the stairs and points her gun up at the window. Black levels reported to shift multiple times.
There have been no reported problems with the professional models.

Q. Does a firmware upgrade help?
A. There have been no noticeable differences, sadly. For more information see the model specific threads.

Q. Movie playback - 48Hz or 60 Hz?
A. Some have reported flicker at 48 Hz. The recommended solution is to use 60 Hz.

Q. Difference the G and S series panels?
A. (Thanks fatuglyguy)
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...8#post19418048
Quote:
they use different panels. the G series uses the "infinite black" 5mil:1 CR neoPDP panels, while the S series uses the standard 2mil:1 CR NeoPDP panels. The biggest difference is that the G series bonds the AR filter directly to the panel and thus it uses only a single pane of glass, like pioneer kuro or last year's panny Z1. The S series uses a very annoying double pane and to my eyes, just doesnt have the pop, black level, or color definition that the G series has. Check them out in person and judge for yourself. Most people would agree that the G series is definitely worth the extra cash. Either way, both offer a tremendous value for the money, and a TV like the G series Panasonic have pq far beyond what you pay for them.

Is there a thread that exists to help people make a tv purchase that is right for them?
post #1361 of 1376
Hello, I am looking for the link to the site that had the history of changes to the Panasonic Professional Series plasmas. Anybody got it handy?

Thanks!

Could you clarify your question please? Do you mean between the different display types: LCD/LED, Plasma, Projector? Or given a specific display type (plasma ) which brand to go with?

Usually it is best to give a budget amount up front, what type of PQ you have in mind, how you plan on viewing (movies/games), and viewing condition (day/night) so people can give their opinion...

Hope this helps.

Does anybody know bruzzi, I think he was the one with the list of Panasonic Pro models changes through the years.
post #1364 of 1376
I clicked on this thread to read the FAQ. Good job putting one together! However, the choice of colors is unreadable (at least to me). Guess I'll look for information elsewhere...
post #1365 of 1376
IDRick,
Did you go down to the very bottom of the page (left side) and see if "AVSForum.com Default" is selected.
post #1366 of 1376
Kenabb,

Yes. AVSForum.com Default" is selected. The regular forums are very readable but when I click on the FAQ, the colors are yellow, pink, purple, light blue, navy blue, etc. The combinations of colors is very hard on the eyes and therefore difficult to read. I can read it but the present format is very annoying and headache inducing. Thanks for taking a look.
post #1367 of 1376
I've got a Panasonic G25 and have been unsatisfied with the internet content they provide. The company also doesn't seem to care too much about promoting it...won't even come out with Netflix capability (unless you live in the States...sadly I'm from Canada;-)) Any suggestions on ways to get internet content onto my G25??

Try going to your browser 'View' menu item, select 'Page style' from the drop-down menu and then select 'No style'. It appears this disables style sheets and the page ends up with standard text on a white background. This worked for me with my Mac and Firefox. Otherwise, whoa...

Now, off to read the FAQ

Got a "link can't be found" error when clicking the FAQ. Forgive me for not investigating further, just giving a heads up.

I was in a local BJs Brewhouse recently and saw a huge Panasonic plasma over the bar that had 4 programs on the screen at the same time. Didn't get close enough to determine the size or ask about the model number. Does anyone know which model in the Panasonic line this might be? I've tried the Panasonic website without much luck.

I think that it must be 65 inches panasonic probably GT25 or VT25 made in the year 2010.
Here is a link to panasonic plasma website but you will find only the 2011 models in the link given below !

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-e...00000000005702

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fX57AHXtYJs


i.e All the plasmas seen in the above link is VT30 & GT30.

But i feel newer tv's are always better than the previous year model,since the company R&D always incoperate some new things or rectify some minor bugs seen in old models.

By the way if you happen to visit that bar again,you can ask the bar manager,since it could be even 60 or 55 inches model too,one cannot just predict as to what size plasma you have seen there....

Love,
kris.

Hi,
Reading alot here, thanks for the posted cheat sheet specs. I'm looking for a 46" plasma, [bigger than that might overwhelm my space] and I would appreciate current info on this size, mainly any inherent problems.
leaning toward a panny. I realize any model and any size can be a lemon, but would hate to be on intimate terms with CS or the repair tech. I have read about "buzzing" noise", board failure, PS failure, the dreaded " blink of death"[ which I now have on my sony crt which is 6 years old] "FB" and the list goes on.[ on all sizes and models] I realize I will have to pull the trigger at some point [ probably sooner than later, as the crt is not going to heal itself] but is there any one with a 46 that is really happy?
How do I get the 5 year warranty? Do I have to purchase directly from panasonic for that?
Or is the smarter thing just go cheap and treat as a throw-away?
Please post any opinion/info you have.
I would be really gratefull!
If you have a 46, talk to me!

thanks,
tvaddicted

This sticky should be "un-stickied"! because over half the the links of The Official Plasma Forum: FAQ Thread don't work!
What good is that? a waste of time.
It was last updated years ago too:

Quite a few people have issues with buzzing it seems, mine makes a slightly higher electrical noise on an all white screen but its inaudible from even a meter away.
post #1376 of 1376
anyone have a collection of Panny flat panel stands? I need a TY-ST42PA20 or TY-ST08K

(I know... don't laugh... I'm 14 years behind the curve!)
