    I have read, on here mainly, that it is possible to access a service menu and see how long your plasma has been on for etc.

    Does anyone know how I can do this on a Panasonic TH-42pw7?

    There was another thread on this yesterday, probably worth searching for as my memory's not great...

    I think it was something like "hold down the volume button on the plasma panel, then press the button below the 'input' button on your remote control 3 times and a service menu will appear".

    There will be 2 numbers, one starts with a T which I think is the number of times the plasma has been switched on, the other is the number of hours.

    EDIT: Oh, found the thread - mysteriously titled "Number of Hours on a PW7", last post by timthetam. What I said seems to be right except the labelling bit on the service menu.
    WT = number of times switched on
    PT = number of hours watched


    :thumbsup:

    Ok, here's the easy way. PW7B
    With the panel on press the status button twice; that's the one with a + sign, below the on/off button.
