I bought a Panny a couple of years ago, and it's been nothing but a string of problems. It occasionally, probably once a month, switches itself off for no apparent reason.
The EPG won't show more than a few hours ahead. It shows the current day's programmes, but nothing beyond.
It stopped connecting to my network DNLA server a few months ago, but it does connect to the Viera Connect web site. I've followed the network check routine, and all appears to be correct. Other devices on the network can find the server without problem, so the symptoms point to the TV.
I've done a factory reset - twice and that has made no difference at all. I've checked the Panny web site, and downloaded the lastest updates, but they make no difference at all.
I've emailled Panny Customer Services and that's a joke. Each time I get (eventually) the following reply:
Thank you for your e-mail enquiry.
In response, unfortunately, without inspection of your particular screen, it is impossible to determine whether it is operating correctly to within specification. I can only recommend, if you are in any way concerned, that you consult with either your retailer or your local service agent. However, should the inspection from a service agent reveal that the television is operating within specification, then you may be charged for this inspection. Those in your local area can be found through our website;
How can a TV that switches itself off, won't display more than a few hours EPG and won't link to a network be operating corectly within specificaion.
I am thinking of buying a new Blu-ray player, and Panny are definitely not on the candidates list.
Does any-one have any recommendations on getting this thing working properly?
