SOURCE: blinking plasma tv

Hi alan,well any tv can be fixed but at what price,your fault sounds like a capacitor proberbly on the inverter board needs replacing,i have come across this problem quite a few times and it will take me 10-15 mins to diagnose and repair this type of problem and it is very inexpensive for the part.
Is the fault worse when the tv is first switched on from cold or does it get worse if the tv has been on for a while???
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do you hook the up

Use the instructions that came with the device for full details. Their site is down, so you can't get a manual online at this time.
Usually, all you need is video input (a cable connection) and power.
If you have a straight cable line (no box), coax cable connection is will work if supported.
If you have a box, the better cables support the RGB and audio split, and will give you a better quality picture.
Be sure all are secure connected, and that if you use the RGB/Audio split connection, be sure each matches the color coding on the connector.

The green snow is usually a problem with the YSUS board. In the tv itself. You can attempt to have this tv repaired by a technician. Most likely it will end up costing you as much as a new tv, except you will have an old tv, with no warranty. A new tv will have all new parts. Newer and better technology and a new warranty.
Thanks,

Sorry to say - it sounds like the 'pop of death' - If you got this from costco - give them a call and see if you can claim warranty (or the manufacturer).

Maxent 60 in lcd tv flickers


I had the same problem with my 50 inch Maxent, found a solution on the internet that seemed too good to be true, but I replaced a part that cost me $1.38 at Radio Shack and my tv is as good as new. Go to this link for details and even includes pictures. All you need is a scredriver (to remove back cover) and a soldering iron - repair is actually very easy. Good Luck!

TV is blinking like th tube is going out


Morning to you
Have you looked in the troubleshooting pages in the manual?
I suspect that plasma TVs do not have tubes, but there is no reason for tv not show thesame behaviour, but for different reasons.
Look for the scart cables and make sure that they are where they sould be. If this does not work it is the plasma TV doctor who has to take a look.
all the best

I have a maxent 42 inch tv for the last 2-3 weeks the picture keeps blinking intermitentley last night while watching it we heard a pop and we have sound but no picture any answers


Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Solution for mine: Replace bad capaciator on input circuit board, I found it by using a heat gun to speed up coming on process, Cost me 62 cents to replace the capaciator my self.

Red dots on Maxent 42 inch Plasma


Two things could be causing this problem.

1. You've got dead pixels (in this case, the red dots would not move around and are in fixed to certain pixels.) If that's the case, most manufacturers offer warranty replacements, but I'm not sure about Maxent's, you'll need to go to their website, or read the warrenty information which should have come in the box.

2. You're cable/satellite receiver is acting up, try unplugging your receiver and plugging it in after 10 seconds.
