The problem is it is locked in store mode. I had to call panasonic to fix it, this is what they had me do.
1 hold the volume down on the tv while holding the menu button on the controller.
2 after the screen changes to the check menu, hold the off switch on the tv untill it turns off.
3 unplug the tv for 30 sec.
4 plug it back in and turn on the set.
5 select home option
6 your done.

From the instruction manual - if store mode is selected:

• Unplug the TV and plug it again. 
•  Press and hold down the front POWER button.


You will be prompted to chose between STORE and HOME mode... select HOME.


The other suggested solution did not work for me.

I stumbled onto the answer from another post, the tv was set to STORE and not HOME since i bought the floor model, to reset the tv to change to home

1. Hold down the volume button on the TV
2. Hold down the OK button on the remote
3. After a few seconds your TV will reset and show a reset menu thingy
4.Unplug your TV for one minute at this time
5. When you plug it back in it gives you the option to set your tv to HOME and basically lead you thru the initial setup process

Panasonic Viera keeps going into picture refresh mode. How can I stop this?


The tv is on "store" rather than "home" setting. If the message "going to refresh mode" keeps appearing every 5-10 minutes, do the following:

-Unplug TV from wall and leave it for about a minute.
-Plug TV back in and follow "initial setup instructions" (can be found on page 14 of manual).
You will be given the choice of "home" or "store" settings. Change it from "store" to "home".
-Done.

Picture Refresh Problem


Used Panasonic Concierge Chat and they had me do this:
press volume down on the TV (not the remote) and then press menu on the remote for 10-15 seconds to bring up a check screen. After that, unplugged TV for one minute. Plug TV back in and set up for Home. Can exit out of the rest of the set up. So far so good......this was happening only periodically for me, so we will have to see if it works. I was also having to go to TV Video and select Component 1 (cable for me) every time I turned on the TV, but the above action fixed that. Now it goes to the input that was on when the tv was last turned off. Concierge is free. Very cool.
