Has anyone else had this experience with this Panny model?? I am still in shock over something so expensive could be so flimsy and Plasma Panel (picture tube to me) go out in 2 1/2 years... I had a Mitsibishi that lasted 15 years and was still going strong when I got the hdtv.. Is there some kind of action a person could take to let Panny know what a wrongful act they have committed and that they should make things right with everyone that bought this piece of junk??
I purchased this hdtv plasma 50" tv in sept 2008 and based my decision primarily on cnet's high rating of it...
Approx a month ago i was told the Plasma Panel had to be replaced due to a thin green line running top to bottom down right-hand side of picture. AND it would be cheaper to buy a new tv than replace Panel.
I paid over $2000.00 for this tv and it lasted 2yr/6mos!! 1 Technician told me to call panasonic and try to get a break in the price of a new one since it was only 6 months out of warranty--------they said sure---50.00!
Folks if you are buying Panasonic Plasma, GET THE EXTENDED WARRANTY!!!
