Question about Maxent MX-42V1 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

My Maxent 58 plasma tv turns off by itself somethimes after hours of playing sometimes after minutes

It was doing this while connected to HDMI and once it starts you turned back on and a few minutes later goes back off by itself if I swicth to coax (no HD) stays on, I thought it may be something wrong with all the HDMI connections(I tried all of them same results) so I switch to composite and worked fine for a few months and now it's doing the same thing while connected to composite, does anybody know how to fix this?

SOURCE: volume control problem

The MX50X1 uses a series of tac switches for ch+/- vol+/- and power. It would be my first suspect. The vol- tac switch may have become thermal or what we in the industry refer to as the windex syndrome. We see this a lot on direct view TVs usually because the switching board is directly below the screen and every time someone cleans the screen with windex an trace amount of the fluid might drip all the way down to the board and invade one or more of the tac switches. This isn't the only reason a tac switch goes bad or becomes thermal sometimes it just simply fails... Tac switches are cheap (less than $2.00) but the labor to put them in is probably one shop hour. Find a good shop and have them do it - - If you're not sure where to find one goto: http://www.nesda.com/locator/state_search.php and start your research from there... Good Luck Bill PS: Impress the shop you call and tell them you think your TV has developed the windex syndrome. They'll probably think you know a lot more than you do about TV repair. :)

SOURCE: Maxent 50" plasma problem

We seem to have had the same problem. Green light keeps blinking but will not turn set on or off. I unplugged the set for a few minutes, plugged back in and works fine but will happen from time to time for no reason.

SOURCE: I have a Maxent 42 inch plasma.When you turn it

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!

Vertical black lines appear intermitently


Does the line appear on just one input(cable,hdmi,video1,video2,ect) or on all of them? The reason why I ask is it may be just an issue with one input setting on the television and you may be able to use a different input for a temporary fix of the problem. Plasma telivisions run very hot and it may be overheating. Try using a small mountable fan above the TV pointed into the back heat vents and see if keeping it cooler keeps the issue from happening. These TVs are repairable but usually cost more to repair than what it is worth due to plasma TVs are very in-expensive now.

Hi ..I was wondering if Playstation 3 and the blue ray features would work with my Maxent MX-42VM10 Plasma Screen TV? Thank you ...kev


Yes and no.  Yes you can connect the PS3 to the plasma using the component video inputs, games and videos will play fine.  However the native resolution of the TV is only 480P (852X480 pixels) which is much lower than the 1080P that the PS3 is capable of.  If you want a tv that can get the best possible image from the PS3 you would need a TV with full 1080P resolution and HDMI ports for digital input. Hope this helps!

If the Scart/HDMI connections are connected to the appropriate ports on the TV you just need to press the Ext or AV button sometimes marked with a circle with an arrow pointing out C-> this should then allow you to choose which connection you wish to view.
