Question about Maxent MX-42HPM20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

3 Answers

Spots or snow in dark areas

On my tv, whether it be a tv show or a blu-ray movie, whenver ther is a dark spot on the screen, like the black of night, or black hair on someon or anything like that at all I get spots all over the area. This is really frustating when I am watching a Blu-Ray movie that has a lot of dark in it, like the new Batman movie. The TV I currently have is a Maxent 42 inch plasma tv. This is a old one, it came out before they started putting HDMI ports in the TV so I have to use an HDMI to DVI cable. Is there anything that can be done to stop this?

Check hooking TV in Composite Video and Component Video input terminals instead of HDMI to DVI cable.

If u use a standard yellow video cable is it ok? no spots? if not the plasma screen display is starting to fail. Your best choice is a new LCD, less power consumption and great video, plus HDMI.

My SAMSUNG DLP HLT5675SX TV seems to develop little black spots all over the screen and after a while these black spots become bright white spots. In fact if a non-used Input is selected and the screen is...


It is the chip that controls the millions of mirrors inside the tv. If they are black, they are stuck closed. If they are white, they are stuck open. I JUST had the same the same thing happen with mine. I bought it 3yr and 2 months ago and I had an extended warranty on it for 3 years. Well, needless to say, it was out of warranty and I was pissed. The store I bought it from suggested I call Samsung. Which, I did. They asked for the model number and told me that my model (hlt5675sx) was one of the ones that is covered becasue they had a problem with the chip. Within 2 weeks, my tv was fixed by a repairman who came to my house. It works perfectly, now and it didn't cost me a penny. Good luck.

Black spots on the screen


I think you should try going to the store and checking if your monitor is still under warrenty. From the description, I think it is beyond repair.

Black Bars on all blu ray movies


Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Dark spots on tv


I have the same TV, and I was getting the black spots on my screen as well. It is dust settling on the bottom mirror. Yoiu can call Mitsubishi and spend 150-200 on getting it cleaned, or you can do like I did and take the front panel off and the 10 screws around the edge on the back of the black plastic border around the screen. Then lift up gently and have someone hold the screen for you and gently dust the bottom mirror. I did this by myself, but it would be wise to have 2 people do it.
