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

2 Answers

My Maxivent TV serial #P1420542HM8 has a problem! When turned on the screen commences to flash lights horizontally. This continues approx 60 seconds or more. Is this an indication that a digital board is failing??? Where is your nearest TV repairman? I live in the Bakersfield, California area. Please help. Thank you. Glen

This problem is common when the X-main board has gone out. If the tv is still under warranty, I would give them a call and have them come fix it. X-main board will cost you about $80-$150. But finding them is tricky. You will have to remove the back panel of your tv and get the part number off it.

My hitachi tv turned itself off, and now wont turn back on. The light flashes continuously in red. Approx 4-5 flashes every 10 seconds


My samsung did something similar, it was a problem with the motherboard. If you're still on warranty, get it repaired.

TV quits working, screen goes black and red light next to power green light flashes 4 quick flashes . After a second or two of no flashing,red light repeats "code" flash. We pull the power plug at the TV,...


The Sony diagnostic routine for 4 blinks indicates it to be a vertical deflection problem.

Did you see a solid horizontal line in the center of the screen prior to it going out? If so, that is a tell tale sign for vertical problems.

basic sony reset below

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center

Stand by light flashes red on powering up with remote and the green light flashes approx 15 or times before the screen illuminates.


thats pretty normal, it takes a good second or two to warm up and the display to turn on(at least0, you get the green flashes as you hold for on, 1 sec is a long time at times, lol, be patient, no problem with your tv!
