My 42 inch Panasonic TH-42PX50U which is just starting to fail has 49,182 hours and 27,551 power cycles on it. Never had any problems with it and it's never been serviced. Damn I'm going to miss my plasma when I have to replace it.

Time:C01E
Count: 06B9F
My problem is black and colored horizontal line when I first turn it on now. They go away as the set heats up but every once in a while you can see them come on and off on various parts of the screen.

Get me a pic before it dies so I can put you 4th all time plasma.

Hey, you didn't refresh the first post! Lol.
I'm glad I picked a great plasma. Up until it started dying I still enjoyed the picture quality it provided. I wish Panasonic still sold TV's in the states. Hope I have the same luck with my Sony OLED that replaced my Panasonic..

Hi Everyone, this has been my goto sub-forum for over 10 years, not sure why i never joined. But thanks to you guys i was turned onto the wonderful world of plasma. One of my beautiful TC-P55VT30's has over 36,000 hrs and i swear it has not changed at all. I also have another TC-P55VT30 with over 19,000 and another TC-P55GT30 with 10,000 hrs. Side by side they all look the same. I have other panasonic plasmas also. I'm still sad that i can't buy them and let alone panasonic tv's anymore. Kind of jealous of those Canadians up there.

Had my Pioneer Kuro lx508D from new. No repairs. On every single day as the main TV.

40,000 and still going strong. Still looks amazing.

Nice job! 40k club!

We are still enjoying our Panny VT65:)
Wow, looking here, the AVS record is 62,000 hrs. That is >7 years...
I recall reading somewhere that the original Panasonic plasma panel life estimate was 100,000 hrs.
Has anyone researched it online to determine what the expected life is?

The claim was that after 100.000 hrs of usage the Plasma Panels would lose half of the brightness / light output..

Basically every 20k hrs you lose around 10% of the inital brightness of the panel..

Is it a linear or exponential [decay] scale, though? If linear, you'd be correct. If it's exponential decay, then every 20k hours would have roughly 87% the brightness of its previous 20k hour mark (losing 13%), acting more like a half-life instead of just a straight downward decline.

I guess that's rather insignificant in the short run, but I was just wondering if we were certain one way or the other. Basically, what would happen after 200,000 hours? Would it go to 0% or 25%? That's what I'm kind of getting at.
