Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

TH-58px60u I recently moved back to Australia from the US, where I had purchased a Panasonic TH-58px60u plasma tv. I have struck the obvious issue of NTSC/ATSC vs PAL/DVB, and was wondering if there is a way to change the system to PAL/DVB. I understand from talking to Panasonic Australia, that the Australian plasmas (the 58" hasn't been sold here) will actually do both PAL and NTSC, but the US ones only seem to do NTSC. I was wondering if there is a relatively simple solution, either by replacing a tuner or reporgramming a PROM, or accessing a hidden menu to turn on PAL. Any suggestions? I have been pointed to a potential solution by using a PAL to NTSC converter as a last resort, but thought that there may be a more elegant solution. Any suggestions?

Hi Mouse999. From reading a bit, it seems that there's no region free hacks for the built in dvd player in that specific model. A solution for you, would be to purchase a standalone dvd player, one that is region free or one that has a region free hack available, and to connect it to that tv. If you're in europe and your tv is pal, you also need to have a dvd player that will read both Pal and NTSC video dvd's ! If that doesn't help, please be more specific, i'll be glad to help. Thanks, cheebster.

Is your Panasonic set to monitor the HDMI input? Just like selecting a mode input on the Tv you must also select the mode input on the surround system.

SOURCE: Bose lifestyle 25 system and Panasonic Plasma Tv not working together

I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.

Nope. The AV inputs except a composite video signal that is either NTSC or PAL. You will need to convert the PAL signal to NTSC.

I had the same issue twice with a TH 42PWD5. turns out it was my UPS that was killing the switching power supply. Warranty covered it but when I removed the UPS not a single issue in 3 years.

I have a Panasonic Th-58PX60U Plasma TV with a sound issue. I was able to get sound out of internal spkrs briefly and the lost and none out of external jacks.

I didn't take the time to look in the manual on your set but believe the raw DC comes from the PS board to the main and its reduced on the main so I would go with the main board. Here is the service manual for it

Have Panasonic The;37pw5 plasma tv . How do I get broadcast tv?

You will need some sort of digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) OTA signal converter (set-top box) with an antenna. The Panasonic TH-37PW5 only has NTSC (in the US) or PAL (UK) tuners. There may be a few low power NTSC stations still broadcasting in the U.S. However, you need to be close to their transmitter to receive the signal. You can use one of the original converter that were available with the government coupon. There are some newer models available. Look at your choices carefully. You will need a converter with RF, composite video or component video output. Any model with only HDMI out will require an additional converter connected between the set-top box and the TV.

The specifications for the TH-37PW5 are available on page 38 of the manual. This is available from Panasonic here: .

I hope this helps.

9 blinks means "Panel Configuration SOS". The fault code points at a problem with either PSU or digital board.

I have a TX-P42X10B second hand from Singapore and The sound and video channel system is different from my country. Can anyone help me for service code that i might be able to turn on some of the options?

Singapore usues the PAL system of broadcasting where in the United States we use NTSC or now ATSC. They are incompatible and unless the set is multi-format support you can not switch it.
