    50" Maxent blinks all the time. I have satellite and other plasma tvs hooked to the same satellite box do not have problem. The tv never stops no matter on DVD or Games or just trying to watch any program. My Maxent is 1 1/2 years old and when I contact Maxent not much help and the impression is expensive to even try to fix or it may be garbage. Either way out of warranty. Can anyone tell me what this could be without getting a diagnose and spend good money after bad.

    Have the same blinking problem. Happens only when I try to play DVDs. Hooked Denon DVD player through Denon receiver to another TV and didn't have the problem. Will also blink on satellite TV when changing from DVD setting to TV, but only blinks for a short time and stops. My plasma is 3 yrs. old in August. Have not had any other problems. Need to find an answer or will have to purchase another TV. Please help!!!

    When watching DVD, DishNetwork, or playing Xbox 360, the screen intermittently blinks. Its a super fast blink, not like turning it on or off or anything, but keeps doing it. It started out doing it when you first turned the tv on, and then once warm would stop. Now it does it all day. I know this seems to be common from the other posts, just wondering if anyone has attempted a fix.

I have the same issue with a 42" plasma moniter. The pwr LED does not blink when the picture is flashing. I also have areas in the picture where it is transparent ....that's the only way I can describe it! I did take the back off the tv and pressed on some of the capacitors to make sure they were seated. This stopped the problem temporarily. It does do it no matter what the input is. Blu ray, DVD Cable etc.

Can you hook up an antenna to a maxent 2007 tv to get free basic television stations

Your Maxent instructions should say. My Maxent is a display, basically a monitor only, that has no tuner. Without a tuner an antenna won't help you make use of the signal. Hope this helps!

Maxent plasma tv mx-42hpt52 when switch on everything works well for about 5min then volume goes to max on its own and other fuctions stops working.

You need to have your main board replaced. It's unfortunate but even low voltage boards go bad. Try locating a Maxent website and email them to see where you can get parts from.

Hooking up a Mac to tv

I ran into the same problem with my "50 maxent. The manual clearly states that mac resolutions are not supported. We won't let that stop us. Step one is to download switchresx. It's a simple utility that should allow you to define custom resolutions. .
Step 2 is to download chicken of the VNC. . Once this is installed on a separate mac from the one you are trying to connect to the maxent take your mini and hook it up to the RGB port on the maxent and boot it up. Once this is done use chicken of the vnc to take control of of the mini with the other mac. Now you can change the resolution on the mini using switchresx which you installed on the mini earlier. In the case of the maxent you will need to set it to 1366x768 at 60 hz. If using another flat panel consult your user manual for the correct resolution. In my opinion there is no flat paned tv this should not work for.
Good luck!

Another question about maxent plasma monitor

Yes problem is repairable sounds like the mainboard (video) needs replacement because the rgb is part of this board along with the rest of your inputs this should fix your problem. There are some models where rgb is seperate but not many I will need the model number of your Maxent to be of further help.

I had this same problem it turned out to be the secondary power supply. This part is made by Samsung and used in Maxent and Dell systems. The part number is LJ44-00068A. It will range from $89 to $259.99 on Ebay. The Dell pricing is better.
