Last night tried to connect with a JBL via BT but the tv would't find anything at all !!
And the strange thing was it didn't find any BT device in the house !!

Any idea why ?

I stand to be corrected, but I don’t think our EZ952’s can transmit audio via bluetooth, I think it only has a receiver for bluetooth devices such as keyboard and mouse.

I will take a look on mine tonight 👍🏻
 
There's no bluetooth audio on the EZ. You could buy a cheap transmitter and run it off the headphone socket if you need that functionality.

Bit of s long shot but wondering if anyone can help! The green horizontal line ive (which looks worse on yellow / orange content) is screen burn according to panasonic (who are not intereted on helping!). I wont be replacing the tv anytime soon so wanted to check if anyone can advise on how best to ‘mask’ it with tv calibration settings? I’ve tried the panel maintenance but it hasnt helped. I use ‘professional 1’ setting and have tried reducing the brightnss but dont want to watch a sh*t quality picture/image. Any help greatly appreciated!
 
There's not a lot you're going to be able to do to mask that, I'm afraid. It might fade a bit over time, but I'm afraid it does look like permanent burn. Do you know what caused it? It must have been displaying the same static high intensity image for hours on end. Was it from a game or on-screen graphics on a particular TV channel do you know?

Ok thanks Steve. It might have been soccer saturday or maybe sky news but i’d flick the channel over occasionally so it would retain the image. Not sure why it’s showing as a green image either? Ive found a few tips on google which seemed to have helped a bit but dont think there’s a magic wand for sorting it!

If you look at the burn on a white or grey background, the colour you're seeing is the inverse of whatever colour caused the burn. If it was green you were seeing then the graphic would have been magenta. Looking at the picture you posted I think it's probably that the graphic had a high red content.

If the line looks green on a yellow full field, the issue is with the red sub-pixel filter aging faster than the green (red + green = yellow). So essentially, for the same given input signal, the level of red in the image is lower than it was pre-burn out. See the attached for a visual of this. Note yellow sits between green and red on the CIE chart. Any reduction in red energy will cause a push to green.

This is the most common scenario with permanent burn out, as the red filters seem to age more quickly. The likely cause, as Steve has suggested, was a static graphic with a high red content.

How would I know if the panel maintenance has run or not on my 55ez952 it's done 2476 hours but I've never been asked if I want to do the long maintenance? I thought this was going to happen on 1500 hours or later? Many Thanks

Just following on from my previous post does anyone know what status 8 means in the system menu?

First two sets of five figures are the shorter automatic compensation cycles started and completed. Third and fourth sets are the longer manual compensation/automatic panel maintenance cycles started and completed.

Status 8 on my tv = 001ef-001e0-00001-00001 i'm not sure if that's normal after 2477 hours? Thanks in advance

It's in Hexadecimal format so yours has started 495 shorter automatic cycles and completed 480. It's started and completed one long maintenance cycle (so that's normal for 2477 hours). Next one will likely be around 3000 hours.

The difference on the shorter cycles will be down to them being interrupted somehow. Perhaps powering the TV back up whilst they're running or unplugging power completely.

If the stand-by light is orange/amber when you turn the TV off it's best to wait until it goes red (around five minutes) before you do anything again.

Thanks very much for your help and the information provided :)

One thing I've noticed with Panasonic (3rd tv) is they never support the Smart Apps market compared to other brands. Is there a way to add apps not on the market? Namely Disney+ or Apple TV+, etc?

I've just started to notice on screen a slight uniformity/haloing/blooming issue at night time in dark scenes just through my V6 box and mainly with BBC content. Pretty noticable on War Of The Worlds from this week. I tried changing the picture preset but didn't fix the problem, i don't seem to have the same problem watching Netflix, Blu rays or 4k discs through my Panasonic 820. I'm not sure if it's the screen or some setting within the V6 box? The V6 box at the moment is hooked up directly to the tv, should i try it through my Receiver? With other content the tv is fantastic for example the new David Attenborough series '7 Continents' looks great in HD and even better in 4K through the iplayer. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. The tv was bought Sep 2018

Are you sure this wasn't an issue with BBC as Sky viewers have reported banding visable during War of the Worlds.

Anyone else watching the football via the Amazon app? Says UHD, but it’s definitely not HDR as I think it should be? Motion looks slight weird as well even though all TV settings remain exactly the same.

Seems Panasonic tv Amazon apps were not working - along with lots of others.

Compatible Amazon devices were fine with HDR - and LG tvs.

Whilst watching Netflix from my 820 player I've noticed rectangles in the middle of the screen one next to the other right across the screen. It does seem to be when the screen is white on Netflix own shows The King and The Irishman. It's only seems noticeable on HDR shows, I tried The Snowman which is In HD and I couldn't see any rectangles. It seems very odd but it's pretty distracting. Many Thanks In Advance

Nothing like that on mine. I have been watching very white scenes for a long old while and nothing abnormal at all. I'd be more interested in upgrading if I had any problems but I haven't any at all so staying as I am for now!

Any ideas as to what could be causing it? Are you watching the white scenes within Netflix?? I was thinking of trying the inbuilt app on the tv or even through my V6 box just to compare scenes? I'm baffled 😕

Have you tried doing ire slides from 5 percent all the way upto 100 percent white to see if there's anything there?
