Panny TH37PE50 - rather strange problem..?


Well-known Member
I've posted this thread on behalf of my bro'...

He purchased a Panasonic TH37PE50 about 2 weeks ago. All was fine until very recently. While watching Freeview channels, the brightness/contrast appears to dim down after approx 5-10mins viewing. If he randomly presses any button on the remote control or removes and re-plugs the ariel lead, the original picture settings are restored.

He's confirmed this is only apparent with Freeview, DVD viewing is unaffected. I've re-read the manual and searched these forums, but nothing has come up with an answer.

Any ideas as to the cause before we refer this to Panasonic?


Seems a strange problem, I have the same telly but I don't use the freeview as I have Sky+.

If I were you I'd get in contact with panasonic

Should have followed this up weeks ago...

Turns out the problem was merely a poor aerial connection. The aerial plug was re-fitted, no problems since.
