If we consider the model numbers of TVs, then there are changes in the designation of the year of development of the TV model H-2020. In some top models, new technologies are used that improve the image quality of Filmmaker Mode, Dolby Vision IQ.

Panasonic TV Model Number Types

Televisions Panasonic marked a fairly simple labeling laid information about the type of the TV screen, the year of development model series as well as for the country which made the TV model.

There are two types of television labeling, which is due to the region in which TVs will be sold.

  • TX-55EZ952B
  • TX-65DXR900

The marking is almost the same, only the location of the letter designating the region for which the TV is designed differs.

From 2014 Panasonic turned off the sale of televisions in the US periodically pops up information about the resumption of sales in the market in the US but as of 2020, the resumption of access to the US TV Panasonic has not happened yet. Although the likelihood of resuming sales is very high, because the market in this country is huge.

In 2018 Panasonic TVs are offered both in the previous year and two types of OLED and LED TVs. OLED TVs have only three models and as usual OLED matrices are purchased from LG. LED TVs with UHD resolution occupy 80% of produced TVs. with a Full HD resolution, TVs in the 5 series are available.

  1. Hi, could you please tell me what year our television is
    Model number: TH-37PX60B it’s a viera with a built in stand.
    Thank you
    John Scrivens

  2. Can you please help and confirm the year make of my TV, thanks.
    Panasonic – Viera Model# TH-L55ET5A Serial# MN2560942

    The problem I have is that YouTube occasionally drops out on TV.
    The TV is hardwired to Modem via Ethernet cable with good internet reception as I can watch YouTube on my I-Phone via Wi-Fi from same Modem no problem.

    Appreciate your help & Cheers,

    • LCD model for Oceania
      Maybe the TV does not have enough memory, delete unnecessary applications and clear the memory cache.

  3. I have an old Panasonic TV Model # TX-68P82Z Serial # MJ142 0120
    Bought in New Zealand but I don’t remember when. Can you please help?

  4. Could you tell me the year of my Panasonic Viera TV please? Model TC-P42X3.
    Thanks a lot.

  5. Hi, could you add a section on the year of Panasonic plasmas? I know the second 2 digit number shows this (10, 20, 30, 60 etc) but don’t know what they mean. Is VT65 newer than VT60? They usually go up in tens so it’s not clear whether the 65 is newer or simply a different specification.

      • OK, thanks.
        Are you aware of any differences in the TH and TX plasmas apart from then region? Some TH models must have been sold in the UK, as used TH plasmas often appear for sale here. I saw a post on an AV forum claiming the TH models were made in Turkey by Vestel and are therefore inferior.

        I’ve seen some TH models with an “80” for the year code – i.e TH-P42X80B. Do you know when this was made? It’s a bit confusing – i assume this must be newer than 2013-14 – the ZT60/65 is the last plasma Panasonic made as far as I know.

        Superb site BTW – very helpful. I don’t understand why Panasonic themselves don’t do something like this.

        Thanks for your hard work.

  6. TC-29P80K ? . If this 29 inch tv have at another country example at europe . So what that code has become? . Cause i’m searching that model 29 inch remote . Hm

    • For your TV, released in 2020 software update
      version 1.269.
      What has been changed in the new version: improvement of network applications.

  8. What is the difference between the suffix B and BZ?
    I know that B denotes the UK but I’m seeing TX-55HX580B and TX-55HX580BZ.
    The Panasonic website shows the boxed heights are slightly different.
    Do they have different stands?

      • FYI,
        Panasonic tell me the “Z” just denotes a later batch and has different packaging, hence the extra 15mm height and 0.5kg weight.

        Had the same query a few years ago with SC-BT105EB9.
        Turned out the “9” was just a later batch.

    • You can buy devices working on WiFi and receive streaming video, connect to the TV via HDMI. You may need a paid subscription to streaming services
