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.

How do i hook regular cable to Maxent MX-42EPM20 42 in. EDTV Plasma Television


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.

My tv has sound but no picture its an akai model pdp4206em1


Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.

Has sound but no picture


Sorry to say - it sounds like the 'pop of death' - If you got this from costco - give them a call and see if you can claim warranty (or the manufacturer).

How do you hook the up


Use the instructions that came with the device for full details. Their site is down, so you can't get a manual online at this time.
Usually, all you need is video input (a cable connection) and power.
If you have a straight cable line (no box), coax cable connection is will work if supported.
If you have a box, the better cables support the RGB and audio split, and will give you a better quality picture.
Be sure all are secure connected, and that if you use the RGB/Audio split connection, be sure each matches the color coding on the connector.

Your TV monitor cannot support the format (scan rate) that your computer's display card is putting out. Go in to the computer's set-up for the resolution under the display properties and adjust the settings to support the TV monitor. Refer to the TV's instruction manual to see the supported formats.

When going back to the computer's display, the display format will have to be changed back to have the proper resolution.

TV sets are generaly not as good as dedicated computer monitors for use on computers.

Maxent edtv monitor 42 inch- how to use as a pc monitor


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.
