  1. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
     Hey everyone,   I am new to the forum and have read seen some great advice!   I have a Panasonic TC-P42ST30, which is only about two years old and the screen has gone out...when plugged in to the wall there is a red light when I press power, there is a click, but no picture...and then you...
  2. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I've noticed this issue mainly when playing video games in certain colors such as blue. When the screen pans horizontally the picture seems to break into really ugly vertical lines of differing contrast. I'm wondering is this a common issue with Plasmas? Is this something I've done, maybe image...

    Anyone know what I should do to see if my horrible black level issues are related to voltages? All I know si the repair guy who put in a power supply did something to check the voltages from that to the boards or something, so I'm still not so sure there are any other voltage settings. I know...

    Id like to know if this is an s30 an st30, or the x series. Any ideas? Any help much appreciated. Edit: TC-P4232C. Sorry to trouble people. I was hoping for an ST30.
  5. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I have been reading a lot of recommendations on the Panasonic ST30 for gaming (especially the 16ms input lag). I currently have a Samsung pn51d550. I have an opportunity to purchase a new 50 " Panasonic ST30 - Model #: TC-P50ST30 for $600 and wanted your opinions. Is that a good purchase or...
  6. Display Calibration
    Backstory: I've had this ST30 for about 2 years now, but have never really been able to get a picture out of it that I was happy with. I have an i1D3 and have spent a good deal of time at various points trying to get the picture to look right, but have just not had good success. I can get...

    So there was some sort of power fluctuation and while watching my 55st30 the screen just shrank into the middle of the screen and it turned off at which point it started to blink 7 times. I called panasonic as I am under warranty and the service guy looked at it and determined that the SU and...

    I have narrowed my choices down to 3 plasma display's Panasonic S60, Panasonic ST60 and Samsungs F5500. The display will be used almost entirely for gaming with about 5% devoted to film. I seldom use the 3D, but if the additonal processing can benefit 2D performance than bonus! From the reviews...
  9. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I'm actually trying to compare the F8500 and the ST60. Feel free to poke holes at any of the points below. I've dismissed the VT or ZT due to the poor light output recognized at the shootout. Both sets can reach 60ftl, ~ same mll, full 2D resolution, great video processing. Differences that...

    Panasonic Plasma 2011 TC-P42ST30 Any idea what is the problem? Can a shade tree mechanic repair? Thannks Mike
  11. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Ok, to make some people happy, lets consolidate the input lag discussion to this thread for the ST60. For some reason, the input lag on the ST60 is testing absurdly high. So lets discuss that a bit here. Going to be quoting some stuff in no particular order. Actually, I do consider this...
  12. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I am finally about to upgrade from my old 27" CRT, since the lines have taken over the screen. I have been doing some research, and it seems like plasma may be the best route for my budget and needs. I will not be using cable, and I will mostly be watching Netflix (streaming) and some Amazon TV...
  13. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have a Sony VPL-BW5 projector that I have been enjoying for the past few months; however, I have recently discovered that some Bluray movies won't play on the projector (but they do on my TV). Specifically, the movies are Total Recall (1990) and Terminator 2: Skynet Edition. I figured that...

    I am hoping someone can help me with my problem. My VT50 connects to my router via wire without a problems. When I try to connect it wirelessly, it identifies the correct SSID, the type and the encryption but no signal strength. Panasonic support had me reset the TV using power button and...
  15. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Hi everybody! It's my first time here, I hope to be in the appropriate section opening an appropriate thread (and sorry for bad english, i'm from italy) long story short: it's my first Plasma TV and i have around 700€ of budget. i'm a CRT enthusiast (i'm typing in front of one right now...
  16. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I guess this is a polically incorrect question, because my last attempt to get answers on this forum were deleted. I thought the idea here was to ask questions. I've read the "Master Burn-in/IR" thread. After 127 pages, it doesn't answer my question. Also I'm not interested in Samsung and LG...

    AVS help me out, does anyone know anything about this TV and its input lag with PS3 game console? I want this TV strictly for gaming at 720P in my game room. I already own a Sony Bravia for the HT and it has terrible input lag for a 50". http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-P42X5
  18. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Hi guys, new here at the forum, although I have done research for tv's here in the past. I've got the Panasonic 65" ST30, had it for a few months with no issues. Since day one, when watching any movies or music from my computer (hooked up through hdmi) ,the volume fluctuates. It did this on my...
  19. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    The title is fairly straightforward. I want to hang my TV. Can I lay it flat on its front face so that I can remove the stand and install the hanging bracket to the back? Or is this a 2-person job where I can't just lay it flat on the carpet? I have a 55 inch Panny (ST30) Edit: I think...
  20. 3D Displays
    The VT50 is a great TV but I'm noticing a degree of ghosting on my 65VT50 that is not tolerable. It reminds me of the first Samsung plasma 3D TV that I purchased in 2010. Because of ghosting, I sold my 2010 and got a 2011 Samsung. Samsung did a great job of cleaning up the ghosting on the 2011...
