I am baffled.Re: Service Menu- 'Hours' and 'Count' Page
My Hours are about accurate, (it only shows full hours), but the Count of Power Cycles isn't.
I assume Panasonic tests these TVs before packaging them.
But, I wonder how many times they power cycle?
And, if they did it would only be for a minute at a time, it appears.
It could only be explained as a stress test, I guess?
Or could it be an error in the service menu?If you checked your Panasonic LCD the day of, or soon after, purchase in the Service Menu-
How many times extra was your TV powered on before you got it, if any?
(It can't be returned for replacement, because they are discontinued, but I could give it to a relative, that wants this TV, regardless. However, I just got it and don't feel like upgrading yet)
