I have the Panasonic VIERA TC-P65GT30 65-Inch: 8744.40 Hours (Count: 3579)


The TV works great, but once it's been on for a couple of hours, I can hear a very light constant clicking (fast clicking) sound coming from the left of the TV. Maybe it's on its last legs. Oh well, it lasted for 5+ years.


Cheers,

Interesting. GT30's are famous for bad SC board. Doesn't sound like that issue. Great thing about these TVs is they are pretty easy to fix if you like DIY.

I have no data to back it up but it seems like Samsung has more failures than Panasonic. Looking through Bad Caps forum it seems there are more Samsung's. Panasonic has a lot though too.

Id say that Samsung has a higher failure rate with it's plasmas, as a general truism.

It's the number of times the TV has been powered on.

Pioneer PDP-5070HD, Sept. 2006, started as main display, now Master Bedroom TV


Pioneer PDP-5080HD was a discounted BB floor model in 2008 for Basement Man-cave TV


Both displays are still used almost daily.

The 5080 shared home theater duty with a 10k+ hour projector
(Epson 1080UB) for the last 8 years)

I've never had any repairs on any of my gear.

I own an LG 60" plasma and would like to join this conversation…but I have never kept any kind of record on how many hours are on the set. I do know it spent a whole year on almost all of the time, but again the hours were never clocked. I have heard that plasma TV's were headed "fast & furious" toward extinction…I love the color saturation on my plasma, but to my untrained eye the 47" LED TV in my bedroom looks equally bright and sharp.

Many of you seem to know down to the 1/10th of an hour how many your set has clocked…is there some sort of "time keeper" function on the TV that will help identify the hours used (and, conversely, perhaps the hours "left")?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Dugly :cool:

Pioneer kuro 50 inch purchased 2005 estimated use time is about 14400 hours, never a problem, hoping for another 10 years, but I am about to buy a Plasma refill kit to keep in reserve:)
