You'll need an adapter suited to the two ends of the the devices.

An adapter where one end fits the back of the PC graphics card ouput where you would normally plug the pc monitor, and the other end fits the back of your tv input.

If you're using windows, right click on desktop, Properties, Display settins, and choose your TV's name from the list.

SOURCE: how do i use my tv as pc monitor?

Here are specs for your tv
you need a dvi to hdmi cable similar to this one here
or this for US
ask also to your local reseller.
If your pc does not have dvi output you can try a vga to hdmi converter cable, I do not know if vga one will work on your tv.

Hello,
Your Maxent MX-42EPM20 is not a TV (Television) it is a Plasma panel. The difference being your Panel does not a TV Tuner (no Coax jack or electronics relating to a tuner) Below is the spec sheet that shows this

You can use a cable box or a cheap Digital TV receiver. You can buy them at walmart, You need one with A/V out puts such as Component. Here is a link to one. This will give you a tuner.

Maxent MX42X3 42" plasma Monitor..


Are you sure that its the main A/Vboard coz it sounds like the main power supply issue to me. Anyways the mainboard is the large board usually located at the center of the tv. If you can remove the back cover of the tv and get me a high res picture of the tv I can mark the board for you.

Maxent as PC monitor


Most likely you haven't set it up as a mirrored display. Try dragging your mouse off the edges of the original dispay (or laptop screen) and see if it shows up on the plasma, if it does, figure out of to mirror. Im not sure how to go about mirroring the display on windows, but on mac its an option in the display drop down menu.
