Red dots on Maxent 42 inch Plasma

There is a major problem going on with my Maxent Plasma. Red small DOTS all over the place on dark areas, to the point sometimes where you can't see anything. Forget about watching a dark movie or show. Maxent support SUCKS. I called them and left messages several times and no one picks up the phone nor does anyone call you back.

What can be done to fix this problem? Can I do it on my own or do I need service? What would something like this cost?

Two things could be causing this problem.

1. You've got dead pixels (in this case, the red dots would not move around and are in fixed to certain pixels.) If that's the case, most manufacturers offer warranty replacements, but I'm not sure about Maxent's, you'll need to go to their website, or read the warrenty information which should have come in the box.

2. You're cable/satellite receiver is acting up, try unplugging your receiver and plugging it in after 10 seconds.

Blue dots on black images


I can tell you that I had my plasma screen replaced in the 4th year. The tech told me that the replacement panel was much more reliable. You may be looking at replacing the plasma panel...(which may be more expensive than replacing the whole unit??).

Red Dots


This is know as diffusion. You will need to locate the Vs adjustment inside the TV and vary it up and down by NO MORE THAN 10 volts. If this does not correct the problem then you will need to replace the Plasma panel.

When tv warms up i get red dots in darker areas of screen


what you can do is take off the back pannel and there is a cord on the top of the board that looks like a computer board, there are many boards in the TV but the one I am talking about is twords the bottom where the video jacks plug in to the TV. Ok once you have located the pannel there is a cord on the top kinda tword the right side, it is many wires inside a black covering. What you need to do is just simply unplug it and plug it back in, do this as many times to try to get it to fix the problem.
