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

Maxent MX-42vm10 42" Plasma

A freind of mine thought she'd be helpful and hook up my plasma to my new stereo receiver, and plugged the cables from the amp to the external speaker jacks on the side of the TV. I was out of the room, but she said it just turned off when she turned up the volume. (I still wince when i write this). The tv powers up, but won't come out of standby (amber light on front), even after being unplugged for over two weeks. Is this TV shot? I can't afford to ship it to the manufacturer, or to replace too many boards. I've looked for fuses, but the ceramic ones I see look fine. I can plug in boards and check fuses, I'm not familiar with anything beyond that. I got this tv for a steal of a price, so I'm not that upset, but I do like it, and can't afford to replace it right now - I would be very grateful for any advice!

    As a followup, I removed the back of the unit, traced the speaker terminals to a small board inside, unplugged the board from the main board (being VERY careful of those big nasty capacitors in there), and crossed my fingers...and it's working! None of the ceramic fuses were blown elsewhere, and all the inputs work.

    No sound, obviously, but besides that, the tv is working perfectly, as before. Since I had planned to use a receiver with it anyway, this is a fine fix. If I ever sell or give the tv away, I'll replace the board.

    Thanks for your input, anyway - I think I lucked out on this one! PHEW - very relieved, and happy my tv is back.

On the back left side of the tv is a power button, it might be turned off. Also the square box attachedment that I have on mine never stays completly connected which turns the tv pink then green. I sometimes unscrew the six screws from the back that holds that box out and then put it back on. When that don't work I smack that box that always work ! good luck1

Generally, if a Plasma Tv is not coming out of standby, it means either the main board is faulty (most likely case) or Power Supply Board is not giving enough power to Main board to switch on the TV. In your case, I think it's the main board (aka Motherboard). Sometimes it's hard to tell to whether ceremic fuses are blown off by looking at them, so it's best to check with a multimeter. Check the fuses in the PSU and also whether it's outputing correct voltages. Also, can you hear a clicking noise right after you've switched on the TV or pressed the power button in the remote to make the Tv go from standby to ON. A clicking noise means one of the boards is shorting out. In your case, I don't think you'd hear a shorting out clicking noise, and I think replacing the Main board will get you out of standby.

How to hook up speakers to an ipod dock


Just run an cable (3.5mm headphone jack into stereo rca cable) from your ipod's earphone jack to one of the available input channels on your amplifier. I put mine into the front auxiliary input on my amp and just simply selected that channel on the amp. Hope it helps. By the way, an RCA cable is the one with the white and red plugs. 2_21_2014_8_49_22_pm.png

I have a Califone 1410 K and would like to hook it up to my stereo receiver. Can anyone tell me if this will work and, if so, what kind of cord I need for the external speaker jack? Thanks so much!


a big plug jack would work, like the kind used for guitars to amplifiers. I have one a friend of mine made for me (he works in a music shop) and it goes in the "external speaker" hole to the amp pretty simple.

Did you know there is a fuse on the back of the radio and one on the amp? Have you checked them? If the radio is working and no ssound it could be the radio, speakers or wiring. In your case it sounds like either the radio or speakers.

How can I hook up bose 901's to onkyo tx-sr876


Assuming you really want to have a working surround system you will need a separate stereo amplifier for the 901's to accomodate the need for the Active EQ. There is no way to separate your receiver's front L&R channel preamplifiers from their amplifiers.

I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surrounds. You would probably just get a nice 2-channel amplier for the 901's.

Modest amps would work but at very loud volumes may go into clipping, which is bad for any speaker. I'm using only 110W for mine and it ahs plenty of steam for the 901's.

For connectiuon I would run a pair of RCA cables from the Front L&R Audio Line OUT to the Active EQ's Line IN; then the EQ';s Line OUT to a separate amp's Line IN. Attach the 901's to the new amp, run through the receiver's setup procedures for volume, etc and you're done.

Not what you might want to hear but 901's have special requirements. I've had mine for 25 years and have no regrets.

Trying to hook new amp to old jukebox??? 1963 Rockola


Hi Randy,

I take it that the output from the jukebox is mono (only a signal and screen cable) and the connection to the amplifier is a phono plug. You could make up a cable by using a phono inline socket and two phono plugs. I would think that you could purchase one from your local electronic store. If you make one up it should be made using a screened cable.

CONNECTING MY TV TO MY STEREO


Make sure the output in your tv menu is set to external speakers. Any digital optical cable, or RCA jacks hooked up properly from the TV's out put to the receivers input should work just fine. Take your time, retrace your steps, and make sure each cable is in the correct input/output. And make sure the receiver and TV are on the proper settings. Good Luck, and thanks for using FixYa!
