Question about Televison & Video
Check the TV for dust inside the case by using a clean, dry source of compressed air to blow inside. Also go to all the inputs connected to the TV and tighten them.

What is the Product Name or Model number of your Maxent 42" Plasma TV? If it is a MX-42X3, Model # P420542HM8, I think I can help you. I have encountered this exact same problem with 2 Maxent MX-42X3 Plasma TV's. I found that C766, a 220uF, 16V surface-mount electrolytic capacitor on the main board is bad. This capacitor is located just to the left of the green multi-fin processor heat sink. This capacitor will test good using capacitor meter or an ESR meter, but if you spray it with Freeze-It with the power on, you will find out that this is the problem! To get it out, I found I had to remove the little 10uF 16V surface-mount capacitor just to the left of it. I then replaced these 2 capacitors with regular (radial), high-temperature, low-ESR capacitors. I cut the leads short, and bent the ends out just a little bit so you can solder them back onto the surface-mount pads. You can get these parts from Digi-Key Corp. I used Digi-Key part # P12383-ND ($0.32) for the 220uF capacitor, and P11212-ND ($0.30) for the 10uF capacitor. Both of these capacitors are rated for 25V and high temperature, so they won't go bad again. You can purchase surface mount capacitors there too, but I find them very difficult to solder back into those locations due to the tight placement of other capacitors in that area. If you're not an expert in soldering, I suggest you take the main board to a qualified electronic technician, and let him do it. But you better put the board in an anti-static bag before you take it anywhere! Hope this helps!
