Our 2009 TH50PZ 800U is toast ..


Love the picture and the sound , but the power supply boards have the lifetime of a nickel rocket. It was one notch down from the top in 2009 with THX.


Thankfully bought  a warranty; 3 power supplies shot in 2 years.


Dealer will replace it after attempts to fix it; so which 2011 model is comparable?:


ST 30 1080 p but no THX

GT30 "THX

VT30  "THX"


Of course, I would pick VT30; but would appreciate your wisdom on what you would accept.


Thanks!

My shop is full of TV's 2 years old or less. Until Panasonic gets their parts supply running in a reasonable time frame , I wouldn't touch them. Great sets, beautiful picture, horrible replacement parts supply. I'll see if I can get any insight from one of the Panasonic service centers for these models. I only work on them on extended or out of warranty.
