This is actually a known problem, which is a result of youtube having made some server environment updates, resulting in compatibility problems.

The underlying issue is that this model is no longer supported by panasonic, so there will be no future firmware updates for it and apps like youtube as a result will no longer work. You'll find that over a short period of time other apps like amazon and hulu will stop working as well.

There is no fix for that, due to the age of the tv it simply will not be supported with any future updates. This is typical for smart tvs, which in general, regardless of brand, get updated for only about 2 years.

The best option at this point, short of replacing the tv, is to supplement the tv by connecting an external streaming device, such as a roku or fire tv and get all the same functions and many more, with better performance and lower cost and much better long term support.

My apologies for the news,

Nathan
