I have bought three Panasonic plasma TVs in the last six weeks, and all have exhibited the same problem. After watching for 10 hours or so the previous settings that I have put in in custom mode erase and the TV goes back to default, standard settings. I took back two S60 TVs for this reason. I talked to Panasonic, and they admitted that it was a problem. Then I bought a ST60. It does the same thing. Now I'm wondering. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a glitch with the 60 series TVs?

That is strange. I haven't seen your problem mentioned by anybody in any thread about any of the various 60 series models. For that matter i can't remember ever seeing any posts of such a thing with any previous models either.


You are putting the TV into Home mode when you first get it right?

I'm not sure. I just did a regular set up as I was prompted when I first turned the set on.

RandyWalters made a good point in asking about setting it up in home mode. If you didn't read the setup, then I'm pretty positive that the default setting is to be setup as store demo as opposed to home mode.


I'd figure out how to reset and redo this option as in store sets are probably set to always be at certain settings since customers are always messing with the options.

Easy, go to Menu, select Other Settings above Help (or the one above that, one of them only has a power saving mode...) and look for Factory Reset. You can then set up the TV like it was fresh out of the box, all over again.

I appreciate the replies. I reset to factory defaults before my last post, and still had the problem. I have always set up in home mode. I just reset again.


I'm wondering now about the "power save" function. Could that be it? I see that there is a "saving" option and a "standard" option for "power save." Does the "standard" option kick out to the "standard" picture setting? Is that my problem?


Thanks for the help!

You do realize that when you reset to factory defaults that wipes out any settings that you've inputted right? Since it's happened to you on three 60 series but hasn't happened to any other 60 series owners i think it's something that you're doing wrong or misunderstanding in the menus.

It's possible that some sort of ECO setting is on and the TV is resetting itself to power saving mode so look into that if you don't think it's just you wiping out your own settings by mistake. I turn all that ECO crap off on my GT50.

Maybe a defective batch was sent to his area.


Could you post all your menu settings?
Who, me? I won't get my st60 until Friday.

My S64 does not exhibit this flaw. That is a strange problem that I haven't heard a single person talk about until this thread.
It has come up. See http://www.avsforum.com/t/1450484/official-panasonic-tc-pxxst60-series-thread/3660_60#post_23280520 .

Completely different issue.

Mine did this it's a settings issue.......I think I know what your doing wrong. Go into input 1 hdmi. In advanced settings you'll see hdmi content. There's an option that auto ajusts the picture , turn off.
