Question about Televison & Video
Have a Panasonic plasma 55 TC-55ST50-1. Have never used the USB to watch movies before, tried to watch one and it says that there is nothing on the drive. Recognizes that the usb is plugged in. We have a cordless key board that works in this port. I can watch the USB on my computer and Sony TV. The USB has the movie content but is not working on the Panasonic Plasma. Why will this not work?? My knowledge is extremely limited with this sort of thing. Colleen

I suspect that with the age of the tv that it does not support videos from the USB drive. It will support update files for the tv itself which is normally something a technician would use it for.

I had this problem in 2007 / 2008 here is what happened to me.
Jan 09, 2008 - I also have brought the unit to the authorized Panasonic repair facility and the problem is a failure in the P-board which is the power supply board. The P-board needs to be replaced. The repair will cost $475 plus tax. $250 is for labor. The unit was nop more than two months out of warranty. This does not speak well for Panasonic. I have been researching the problem and it looks like this has happened to many of the Panasonic plasma TVs.
Jun 14, 2008 - As an update to my problem with the failed P board. Contacted Panasonic Service and talked to a customer service representative. I told them how I have purchased many Panasonic products and how unhappy I was with the failure of the product. They proposed paying the labor cost of $250 and I would pay for the part. I just hope it does not happen again.

Hey - I'm in the same boat, did you get it working? I connect and get the USB menu up, but the tv says that the file is corrupt, even though the iPod works fine when it's not connected to the tv.

SOURCE: I own a LG Plasma
The USB port on the TV might not have enough power to power the external hard drive. Can you try putting a movie on a USB memory stick instead, and see if that works?
