Maxent MX-42HPT51- will not respond!

Hello - We have had this set now for about 5 weeks. And after about 2-3 hours of watching the controls on the TV and the remote will not work. The only way to change channels it through the dish network remote but this does not help volume control, TV settings, and/or shutting TV off and on. You have to unplug the TV for about 10 seconds and then plug back in and then everything is operational again for the next few hours. This started happening within the first week we received the set. We though it may have just been a one time weird thing but now it happens more then not? Any suggestions? Since the set is so new we should prob just bring back for an exchange or refund - unless someone may have a easy fix. Thank you,

Maxent tv's are poorly engineered using really cheap low quality parts on their circuit boards. Take it back get a refund and stay away from maxent.

Hi my tv flickers when its been on too long but if let it rest for a few hours it stops and works fine, what is the issue?

Plasma TVs run hot. Unfortunately for you you have a component that is overheating. Quite often you will find a capacitor getting puffy. Look around the main board for distorted components.

Troubleshooting for maxent mx-42hpt51

Blue screen(bright blue) indicates an absence of signal. If you have "on screen" display characters: menu, channel ##, volume bar, etc, your set might be configured for digital antenna settings, or DTV, "air" mode. Then, you won't be able to get cable channels through. If your "blue screen" is dim and there is no any characters, then your Y-sustain module is bad. Especially, if you have encountered loud "pop" shortly before "blue screen" appeared. Then, it's a major repair with board(s?) replacement. If you can handle that, get back to me in a next session. I will guide yourself "how to".

Looking for a manual to download for Maxent TV Model #P4202YD02 Product # MX-42HPT52

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.
