Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Does this happen on anything other than netflix? Other apps, cable/satellite, dvd, etc?

No..the TV remote
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 4 months ago
That is not likely. The Panasonic model you gave is a very very old tv model and does not have any internet or Netflix capability of its own.

You are correct. Wrong model number. Looked on the TV. Model is TC P60VT60
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 4 months ago
Thank you for checking. If it happens only on the built in app you can try adjusting the brightness in the Panasonic menu. First open Netflix then press menu and go to ththe picture options and adjust then let me know if turning that up helps
