I just mounted my Panasonic Viera tcp50x1 and have to use HDMI3 for my Digital Cable since it is on the side; however, the screen shows as 480i instead of 720p and is widescreen. How do I change HDMI 3 to 720p, which is what it is on HDMI 1?

Took me a while to find this. Remove the two lowest screw, holding on the plastic back, in the centre and it drops out.  -- Andrew

SOURCE: How to change from 480i to 1080i

The TV has a automatic scalier chip installed so it depends on the input signal that you are using. For example you are using a HDMI connection with a xbox 360 and you set the display setting to 720P then the TV will display it in 720P. If you set it to 480P then it will display it in 480P.

SOURCE: panasonic viera doesn't display computer correctly

I have had what is fundamentally the same problem. I have a desktop PC that I am plugging in to my Panasonic Viera TX-32LZD80. I am using DVI connection plugged in to HDMI port.

The solution is fairly simple; use the Menu button on the TV remote to get to the Main Menu for the TV and then select Setup which should be the fourth of four options. This will get you to the Setup Menu for the TV for the current channel. Look for the Picture Overscan option, it will very probably be set to On if you have the problem of %5 or so of display being missing on all sides.

Switch Picture Overscan to Off.

This immediately should solve your problem. A note of warning on this is that I suspected this was the problem but when I first looked at the Setup Menu I could not find the Picture Overscan option.

If you are unable to find the Picture Overscan option then trying fiddling with the Aspect settings. You will probably find it set to Auto. Switch it to 16:9 and you should find the Picture Overscan option will be available from the Setup Menu.

Hope it works for you.

SOURCE: Viera Link not work between two brand new Panasonic devices

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

SOURCE: Just bought a 50 panasonic viera, when we hook up

Plasma TV normally do not have the resolution required for PS3 unless the plasma TV is fullHD( 1920x1080p) pixels.

HD Ready Plasma = 1024 x 768p
PS3 Outputs = (fullHD)1920x1080 or (HDReady) 1280 x 720p.

LCD TV accepts the resolution matches the resolution the PS3 is outputting.

My panasonic viera TC-55DX700C has 3 HDMI inputs. But, when I press the input button on my remote control, I can only select HDMI 1 or 2 or a component, not HDMI 3. Why?


Usually when you have more than one HDMI port you always should connect to the 1st and any other component extra to 2 then 3. In your set HDMI1 is best for viewing for 4K or default, HDMI2 is for a stereo that supports ARC and HDMI3 is for extra components. In most TV now the set will not let you connect to an input source unless you physically have a component with a cable in that source port first. I'm figuring that might be the case of your TV set.or else it wants you to use HDMI1 first If you do have a cable in HDMI3 with a component and it's not letting you connect to it, then the other thought could be that the plug has gone bad,

I have a 2009 panasonic tcp50x1 plasma tv and im getting a 10 blink error code. Is that the main board or power supply board issue?


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

How to plug my external speakers to my viera tv


This television only outputs digital audio called PCM / Dolby Digital, Fiber Optic so you may need an amplifier that has a digital in port (if the speakers are rca red and white cable plugs then the amplifier needs rca output ports). Then you would need to connect the amplifier to the speakers
. Unless the speakers have a digital in port which I am unsure on ,. The digital out audio port on your tv uses a fibre optic digital audio cable..
page 13 of the user manual shows this digital output port.

Panasoics plasma viera rv will not auto tune telling us to insert aerial already in Model TH-P50X20Z


The manual for this TV can be found here. If you are watching broadcast television, or cable TV service that does NOT require use of a set top "cable box" tuner, you would connect the coax cable from the UHF / VHF antenna or cable into the ANT cable connector on the rear of the TV as shown on page 8 & 9 in the manual.

You would then tell the TV setup to scan for available channels as shown on page 12 of the manual.

If you are using a seperate tuner - like those supplied by Cable TV, Dish, DirectTV, Satellite, etc. you should use (1) the HDMI 1, 2 or 3 inputs (HD) 720P and up; (2) the RGB inputs of AV2 for best picture quality 720P or better (HD), (3 & 4) the AV1 & AV3 (on the side next to HDMI) for 480i and possibly 480P (SD) and finally the ANT connector for 480i. If you have a computer that offers VGA jack to connect to an external monitor, use the PC connector on th erear of the TV to send it HD images.

Page 27 & 28 detail manual channel editing.

Good luck!

The tv i own: Panasonic TX-32LX77 LCD Monitor (TX32LX77) . i want to know if this is HD. if i hook up the tatasky HD box, will i get a full HD output? thnx


The TX-32LX77 is an HD TV but only has 720p (1366 x 768) resolution. Full HD is 1080p. (SD is 480i.)

I wish that I had better news.

(It's possible that you won't notice the resolution difference; small screens don't always need the full 1080 lines of pixels from top to bottom of the screen to give a crisp picture.)
