Question about Maxent MX-42XM11 Television
This began about 8 months ago, when I turn on the TV for the first 3-5 minutes I can only hear the audio and the screen is dark gray or black. After about 3-5 minutes, the picture begins to flash on and off until picture finally syncs up and we can then begin to watch TV normally. If I turn off the TV and then turn it back on a few seconds later it works as expected. However, if I let it set for any length of time and the unit cools, it will go through the warm up and flashing process until synced.
I had the same issue....thankfully, I had purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy...I had been in a panic, because I NEVER thought I would pay a grand for a tv, but I LOVE it...anyway.....I had the "Geek Squad" come to look at the tv....the tech took 30 secs....there is a problem with your Y-SUS (Y-sustain board)...it will need to be replaced...and...the tech called another tech, and he advised that the Z-SUS be replaced as well (apparently he had to go back to the same home after a Y-SUS replacement to change out a failed Z-SuS).....retail on Y-SUS is about $300...ebay has them for less than half that, if you think you can do it yourself...keep in mind that "Maxent" is a Zenith/LG product, so finding parts might be a challenge if you base it upon Maxent....hope this helps!!
