I have 58" S2 Panny

First off thank you to D-Nice for posting your calibration settings, very helpful. I followed your settings on the link:

https://www.avsforum.com/t/1232441/the-official-2010-panasonic-settings-issues-thread

I set all regular settings on TV then wanted to set the service menu settings and wanted to make sure I did it right. When I got in to service menu I learned how to navigate through it on youtube tutorial. So when I got to WB-ADJ MENU I followed your guide: set Color Matrix to Cinema on HD and SD by changing inputs and adjusted settings per your settings below on Method Select 00 it was set to 03. So I wanted to make sure that each of the sub items R-DVR, G-DVR etc I just counted down or up depending on your settings below from what it was? For example my TV had : R-DRV F5, G-DRV FF, B-DRV 9B, R-CUT 80, G-CUT 80, B-CUT 80. So when I adjusted I just clicked VOL down or up depending on your settings, like your R-DRV +5 I clicked up on Vol 5 times, is that Correct?

So now my settings are:

R-DRV FA, G-DRV F4, B-DRV 90 (AS YOU HAD -11), R-CUT 7E, G-CUT 80 (AS YOU HAD 0), B-CUT 84



D-Nice settings listed:

Service Menu Offsets

WB-ADJ MENU
R-DRV: +5
G-DRV: -11
B-DRV: -11
R-CUT: -2
G-CUT: 0
B-CUT: +4

Note: These offsets must be entered for both Color matrixes. You access the different matrixes by using a 1080i/p signal for the HD matrix and 480i/p signal for the SD matrix. The WB Method Select option should be set to 00 instead of 03.

Panasonic S2 58" HDMI Issues

Guys, out of nowhere my Panasonic S2 58" HDMI ports are not working. Anyone had this issue? I moved this TV to my game room and it does not have much viewing as of late, today I wanted to watch some WDTV Netflix and notice I get no signal, and no signal from cable box, both HDMIs are plugged in the back of the TV. TV turns on, I can change picture and other settings, change inputs, I also reset to factory. NO change. I unplugged TV from power and will wait, like someone suggested. I also read that looks like its common issue with the A board of the TV to fail or get zapped by power surges. If that is the case and its the board, is it worth changing? If so, how much and what is the part number to look up online or eBay? Unless there is a good seller with good prices anyone knows on here. Thanks for all the help.

I did not try to connect the HDMI side port of the TV yet to see if that one works.

A board sounds logical. Pull the back off the panel and get the exact part number for the A- board. Then see if you can track down a replacement or if anybody on E-bay is fixing them. Pop it back in and boom back in business! Ideal scenario of couce

Anyone's G-series still running strong? I have a Panny TC-P54G25 from 2010. Still a great picture, though I've been eyeing those Sony and LG OLED 65" and 77" panels as a possible upgrade in the next couple years. Anyone regret the move to OLED who's gotten used to Plasma's deep blacks and smooth motion? Seems like there's a lot of nitpicking the various features/technologies on those OLED panels. They're also pretty expensive when you get up there in size, especially considering I only paid $1500 for the G25 54" almost 10 years ago.

Still using my P50G25 as a nice computer monitor. I know I'll eventually go to a 4K OLED in the future, but right now my PC isn't quite up to par for constant 4K gaming without an all new build. That will come first before I even think about upgrading to an OLED set.

Yep, I still have my TC-P50G25 and she's running great! I am in pretty much the same boat as I've put off upgrading to 4k but from what I've researched and read up on, the majority have said OLED would be the only thing close. Also, most were happy they made the 4k jump for HDR despite the various nick-picking of the new displays. So I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a LG B9 over the Black Friday weekend since Dell was throwing in a 4k blu ray player as well. It delivers next week....so I'm still a little nervous about it but also very excited Best of luck deciding what to do.....technology

Wow... necro-bump... and coincidence. I literally just got a 65" x950g to go in the family room, so the 55" Panny will go into the game room. Glad to hear it's a good monitor as well.

That 55" will bump a 50" 720p Panny I got a LONG time ago. I think I got that one for around $1800, but that was because I got a leaked Black Friday ad, so I paid full price at Best Buy and price matched (110% the difference at the time) the Circuit City ad. The point being is that I had to do acrobatics to get a "good deal" ~15 years ago. It made me chuckle when I paid $1,000 for the 55" Panny.

BF prices on the x950g further enhance the price-performace curve story above... still cracks me and my friends up. My new TV should be here next week.

It would be interesting to hear you thoughts on going with LCD after your long history of plasma. I've read lots of posts about plasma to OLED owners. Would actually be great if there was a dedicated thread in this plasma forum, for all the current and past plasma owners as what they upgraded to and results.

(2)-Panasonic TC-P55VT30 / Yamaha RX-V3800 / Mirage Omni Speakers / Velodyne subs
(1)-Panasonic TC-P55GT30

Initial impressions (just viewing Dish and on-board NetFlix).

On-axis picture is wonderful. Reflections are better than the Panny (imo) and that could be because the TV itself is brighter. Blacks are *much better*, as the Panny's blacks have been getting green/grey. I am glad I paid for the latest chip-set as the menu and interface is very responsive, and the boot-up is quick. I have tweaked my receiver (old Denon 3808) for ARC and am waiting for an optical cable to come in to complete the set-up. (Family room is only 5.1.)

I see the color/contrast shift when I walk between rooms. It's tolerable and I've decided to try to untrain my eyes. It has no impact on our primary viewing positions, but you can notice the degradation when watching from the breakfast nook (one room over).

Overall, I am happy with the upgrade at this price-point (BF deal). It's really the magic price-point for me. If I paid much more (like for the Q90 that I was interested in) I'd be too focused on the viewing angle.

Hope this helps.

I have a Panasonic G25 plasma which recently had a vertical bar appear on the screen. It is most noticeable with a white background or with the screen wiping feature. I adjusted the camera shutter speed to allow you to see it, but it turned everything green. If you look closely below the enter password text, you can sort of make it out.
