This bulb is supposed to last 5 years?! Well, my first one has just blown after 60 days! I don't even know if this is covered under any warranty as it's a replacement for my 3 year old PT50LC13 lemon. Guess I'll be on the phone with Panasonic tomorrow. I was hoping those days were finally over.
I recieved the same settlement for my lc13 had I known at the time I would be replacing bulbs on a regular basis I would have kept the original TV the lcx70 is completely substandard and no way comparable to the 3000 dollar TV I bought.
Here is some info if we all voice our complaints we might finally get our money back so we can buy another brand I am so done with Panasonic they have proven they are building disposable electronics
the pt-50lc13 models case was represented by the Mills Law Firm I spoke to an associate and she was very interested in my (our) dilemma and assured me they would not leave me hanging. They can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a settlement to another CA suit fore the LC14 series TV and the law firm that handled this can be reached at 'GREEN@LAWGP.COM'; 'JWH@NJLAWFIRM.COM'
The claims administrator for both cases is the garden city group and can be reached at email@example.com
If we all make enough noise perhaps we can get Panasonic to do the right thing and give us our money back on a shotty piece of crap that they never should have put on the market. At this point in time a replacement Panasonic will not be acceptable to me. As a footnote I spoke to a supervisor at Panasonic customer service and the only suggestion he had was buy an extended warrantee and I asked if they would pay for it the answer was NO. I suggested that he give me a contact to speak to someone up the food chain about a refund of my original purchase (I am still paying the bill on that C card) he bluntly told me that would never happen. He did however take my name and number I hope that I get someone to address this and make it right. Will post what I hear back if I do
Again make some noise I want as much as everyone else to get a real big sreen the super bowl is not that far off.
