  5. Hi,
    I have a 20011, (I think) Panasonic model number mh21790143 Viera. It has been making some static sounds and the other day I turned it on and a few minutes later I heard a pop and then it shut off. I can’t turn it back on and there’s a red flashing light that won’t turn off and it’s unplugged. Any recommendations would be very grateful.
    Thanks, Shelley.

    • I think there is something wrong with the electronics in your TV, but only the service center can tell you precisely what it is. It could be a burst capacitor and a chip boiling due to a short circuit. In any case, you will not be able to fix it yourself. And given the age of your TV, it is probably easier to buy a new one.

  6. What year was my TV manufactured..having sound issues & trying to figure out if it’s worth fixing or just replace? Model # TH-42PD60U

    • PH-42PD60U 2006 model, plasma. Plasma televisions have a lifespan of 15-20 years, depending on the intensity of use. I would recommend replacing the TV with a new one.

      • Hi, I have a Panasonic model number mh21790143, do you know if it’s a plasma? I bought it in 2011. I was having sound noise issues and then one day I turned it on and about 15 minutes later, I heard a pop and then it turned off. There has been a red flashing light at the bottom that won’t stop flashing.
        Thanks, Shelley.

    • There is no TH-403400Z model, but there is a TH-40E400Z model for New Zealand. This model is from 2017.

  7. Hi just got a 2nd hand set, just wondering if you can tell me the year for TX-L32XM6B thanks

  8. Hi, hope you can help. Recently bought a TX-65JX850B. On arrival the model on the box denotes TX-65JX850BX. Curious as to what the X at the end stands for as I can’t seam to find an explanation online. Thanks in advance.

    • TX-65JX850B is the base model for the UK. BX, BZ (X and Z) are modifications for a specific retailer, such as a large chain store. The difference is usually the warranty, so the base model has a 1 year warranty, the BZ model has an extended warranty up to 5 years if you buy from a Costco customer store. The BX I don’t know specifically. Technically there is no difference between the B, BZ or BX models.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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
