The TV was made by LG. You should be able to google an LG distributor or try ebay. The 953 is readily available but the 917 may be hard to find. Won't be cheap for new ones, around $350-$400 for both unless you can find used.

Hello, Your Maxent MX-42EPM20 is not a TV (Television) it is a Plasma panel. The difference being your Panel does not a TV Tuner (no Coax jack or electronics relating to a tuner) Below is the spec sheet that shows this http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/maxent-mx-42epm20/4507-6482_7-32139310.html?tag=mncol;subnav
You can use a cable box or a cheap Digital TV receiver. You can buy them at walmart, You need one with A/V out puts such as Component. Here is a link to one. This will give you a tuner. http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-TV-Converter-Box-DTA800/8343230
Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
ha ha ha this problem is caused by the Y-SUS or Y sustain board (any name is used for it) if you open your tv you coud see around 4 big boards, the left is the Y-sus, if you test its two fuses you can see one of them are blown that means that your YSUS is blow it, the part is 6871QYH953A. and the price is from 35 (the fix kit) to 280. I'm sorry for my laugh but I had the same problem and found it that this model of board is LG and around 18 brands and diverse model of TVs have inside this piece of **** and all of them have the same problem sound and no image.
Common problem on these sets are many many bad caps on the digital board. Repair kits are available for these containing the necessary parts if you're savvy with a soldering iron. Otherwise, replacement of the digital board is necessary and you'll have to contact either Maxent or a local repair shop. Tracking down which caps are bad can be difficult even with the right equipment as some tend to check good while in circuit when they are actually bad.
Call your local TV servicer back and ask him to call tel: 626-810-2250 customer svc to get an authorization to
repair the set under warranty. Once they get the
authorization, they should be able to order the board
or parts and effect the repair for you.
