Question about Maxent MX-42VM10 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
TV will not turn on when power is connected. Green power light flashes and then turns to yellow. The readings on the AC EMI FILTER ARE 123 VOLTS ON THE HOT SIDE AND 63 VOLTS ON THE NEUTRAL SIDE. THE FUSES ARE GOOD ON THE VOLTAGE BOARD. COULD THE PROBLEM BE THE EMI FILTER THAT CONNECTS TO AC POWER?

Trying to program a universal remote can sometimes be a frustrating process. Successful programming of a universal remote depends on whether the universal remote manufacturer included our company’s information in the remote when it was assembled.
Then a cable company (ie., Comcast) or satellite provider (ie., Dish Network) orders their decoder box and universal remote control from a manufacturer (ie., Scientific Atlanta, Motorola, etc.), the decoder box manufacturer provides a list of all the possible remote controls this universal can duplicate. From that list the cable company or satellite selects which manufacture’s products to include on their new universal remote. Once those manufacturers names have been decided, they are placed on the universal remote and a numeric code is assigned. If they choose not to include our company on the universal remote, the universal remote may not access the Maxent screen.
If you cannot locate Maxent on the list provided to you by the universal remote provider, please try the following:
Through contact with various cable and satellite content providers we have developed a list of the most common numeric codes that are used with universal remotes.
Content Provider/Most commonly used code
Comcast (ML-3251HLT Model): 0054
Direct TV: 11755
Dish Network: 742
Cable Vision: 165
Adelphia: 0156, 1755
Time Warner: 0230
We have identified other manufacturers of display products that have similar remote control information to ours. Depending on the universal remote you are using these manufacturers may work. Please use the documentation that accompanied your universal remote, and look up the following companies. Input the numeric code associate with that company.
If the universal remote you are trying to program contains a Code Search (the remote will scan through all the codes contained within the universal remote) function, we recommend that you try that procedure. It is possible that there may be another manufacturer code that may work with our monitor.
You may also want to try a Learning Remote from another manufacturer. This type of remote control can absorb or record the information coming directly out of the Maxent remote control. The learning remote then duplicates that information and acts like the Maxent Remote control. This type of remote can also record the signal coming from your other universal remotes in the same manner. In which case you can use this learning remote for your entire audio video system

The TV was made by LG. You should be able to google an LG distributor or try ebay. The 953 is readily available but the 917 may be hard to find. Won't be cheap for new ones, around $350-$400 for both unless you can find used.

Very common problem on these sets caused by bad surface mount caps. Check on ebay for a repair kit it's the only place I know where one exists.
