I have a Maxent MX-26X3 Television and I cant get it to connect to the local channels when I plug in an antenna. What am I doing wrong?

Do you have a digital converter box? Its a smaller block square box that connects to the wall and the tv connects to the digital converter? I you do not have a digital converter that is most likely your problem. Not a gurantee but since they did the big digital signal switch, you now need these converters. Hope this helped

Maxent 32" power problem

I had a similar problem with my Daytek LCD TV after a power outage.

A quick read of the manual showed how to do a reset on power up.

That solved my problem and everything worked okay after that.

Is there any way to connect basic cable to the tv without using a converter box or anything else

Recently, I dropped HBO with my cable company and there dont have a box. Since the Maxent 42 is only a monitor and doesnot have a tuner...there is no where to plug cable from the wall to the tv.
Solution...plug cable from wall to VCR/DVD and then use RCA cables (Red,White and Yellow cables) from output from VCR/DVD. works great.

Brand New and already broken

There is a short on one of the boards. The power supply may have also been damaged. You should take the set back to the dealer for an exchange.

I would sugget to buy a quality brand name if you want high reliability.

Yes I had this problem. Unplug the power cord for 1 min then plug it back in. The tv will reset and the buttons then work again.

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.
