Do you have a digital converter box? Its a smaller block square box that connects to the wall and the tv connects to the digital converter? I you do not have a digital converter that is most likely your problem. Not a gurantee but since they did the big digital signal switch, you now need these converters. Hope this helped

SOURCE: Maxent MX-26X3 picture problem

someone gave me a maxent mx26x3 with the same problem. I took the back cover off, and then the metal shield covering the PC board. There is a green heat sink on the main processing chip. The heat sink was not making good contact. I slightly twisted and pushed the heatsink on the the chip, and the picture stayed perfect now for 2 days. I think the heatsink will eventually need to be re-glued on with thermal expoy glue. It will be a pain to remove and clean though.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.
This video shows troubleshooting steps to use when a "No signal" message appears.

I moved and cant figure out how to hook my 4030 channel master antenna up again. I have a converter box and hd toshiba tv


INSTALLATION

Channel Master by PCT indoor antennas are designed to provide optimum reception of

UHF / VHF and FM signals. These antennas have 75 ohm outputs, which allow simple,

hassle-free connections to today's newer TV sets that have 75 ohm F type connector

inputs.

Simply attach one end of the supplied 6' cable with F connectors to the output of the

antenna (Fig.1). Attach the other end of the cable to the input of the TV set or VCR

(Fig. 2). Some adjustment of the antenna might be necessary for optimum viewing.

Model CM-4030 includes a built-in amplifier and separate power supply.

1. Follow the same steps as above for antenna to TV / VCR hookup. Note : Model

CM-4030 also allows for two set / VCR hookups with its unique dual output feature.

2. Insert the power injector into the back of the antenna (Fig. 3). Plug in the power
transformer to the closest electrical outlet (Fig. 4).

Can't figure out indoor antenna input


first off . Indoor antennas are only good for the closest tv stations and you still have to do a channel search thru the main menu .

Maxent mx-26x3 video issue


The tv probably does'nt have a fast enough refresh rate to work with games properly. It should be in the manual for the tv, the lower the number the better. I think it's 12 milliseconds on that tv. Have a look here:Response Rates.

How can i fix static on my maxent lcd tv


26 inch maxent mx-26x3 and 32 inch, l2614xw02 some same parts
When i hear the word static, i think snow,
If while your watching tv and it looks like color snow pixels popping in and out all over the picture i did this to fix it.
look at main board you see a green heat sink,
left of that heat sink you see a 220 uf 16 volt capacitor that half surround by 22 uf capacitors,
change the 220 uf capacitor and snow is gone.
to get it off i just wiggle slowly back in forth until the old capacitor falls off,
then put some fresh solder on and new capacitor on and done.
use a radial electrolytic capacitor not the little metal one they had on

I just got a new 26" Westinghouse TV, and the screen says "No Channels in List" and when I search for channels, it is not finding any.


What type of antenna are you using? Or what is your source for accessing channels? (i.e. - are you connecting to a cable tv service box or are you using a receiver ect.) Make sure that your source is connected to the input method that you are currently using on the tv.

There are many input methods to choose from in the settings of the tv. They are generally called antenna 1, antenna 2, cable, aux, hdmi - and a few other names. There should be a button on your remote to change them. The function is usually called "source" or "input". Press that button to change the input method until you get a picture on the tv or pick up some sort of reception. when you have the tv set on the same method of input that your antenna source is connected to, you will get channel reception or some sort of picture. Thats when you use the menu functions to auto find channels for you and let it go through its checking scan to report how many it has picked up.

If its running the scan for channels and not locating any stations, and the picture is either scrambled with the white noise sound tv's make when off channel or if its just single color screen without any sound - then you know the antenna input method you have chosen on the back of the tv is not the current method set in the settings under the menu key.

Most of the time the inputs are labeled on the back. If you look under the cable antenna connection, it should say "cable" somewhere in small print - or "antenna 1 input", antenna 2 ect. Look on the back of the tv. If you are using RCA jacks that are labeled right and left for sound and a third connector for video ect, look for the name of the input method of those three connections on the back of the tv. It should be marked as input - aux 1 ect. Then just change the source chosen in the tv to match it and have it auto program your channels.
