Question about Panasonic TH-42PX500U 42 in. Plasma Television
Just bought this product c/w a panasonic Theatre surround system SC-PT350W.
Problem - Cannot get the 'viera link' to function
It is very likely that cross talk does corrupt the link but for Panasonic to "blame" anyone else is not very professional. Anyway, if it worked for 6 months perhaps disconnecting the Foxtel IQ and reestablishing the Viera link with the Panasonic devices then reconnecting the Foxtel IQ for another 6 months of happy viewing. This is not a permanent solution but the alternative doesn't seem to be an option.

You need to select setup from the TV menu then switch the Viera link on. I think retuning must have switched it off.
This worked for me

Forced to factory default: press and hold [VOLUME ( - )] on the TV and press [MENU] on the remote 2 seconds. Exit: Unplug Power to reset.
If it does not help, the main board need to replace. For further questions, please add your comment.

Testimonial: "Thanks TV Help-Dave! Your solution was right on the money. Speaking of money....This site just saved me a $79 service fee. Great idea for a website!!"
SOURCE: How are you? Good
I'm experiencing this lip synch problem with the T500 too. Not only that, but the soniq firmware upgrade (from their site) doesn't work either. And not only that, but the unit won't record from the EPG, and timer record looks like it is unreliable as well. The frimware file was on their site a few days ago, now I can't find it. They're promising a new website (URL?) soon. I'm none too impressed. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks.

The power supply board of the television is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
I hope this will help in solving the problem....
