    Picture appears on power on. Then a min. or so in, the picture becomes scrambled, until there is no picture at all. Just audio.I've taken off the back panel, and the pc cover plate, physically inspectecd all connecting wires, but don't know what to do next.

Someone gave me a maxent mx26x3 with the same problem. I took the back cover off, and then the metal shield covering the PC board. There is a green heat sink on the main processing chip. The heat sink was not making good contact. I slightly twisted and pushed the heatsink on the the chip, and the picture stayed perfect now for 2 days. I think the heatsink will eventually need to be re-glued on with thermal expoy glue. It will be a pain to remove and clean though.

    Do you have a picture or can you tell me where that "heat sink" is? I took off the first metal shield, is there another shield to take off? Thank you.

The heat sink is not the real problem i tried this fix and it worked for a week and then became worse the connectors on the chip under the heatsink become disconnected due to heat and lack of ventalition the only real fix is to re-solder those tiny connectors which can be done but is quite difficult you have to use special equipment just to see them clearly.

    Same problem with mine...just pulled the cover off the back and twisted the heat sink and she worked....I think I may just leave the back off to keep it cooler...

Sil2222 is right about the problem being in the solder joints. I have fixed several of these by using my hot air solder station. You have to put pressure downward with the handle of a screw driver while reflowing the solder and keep the pressure held until it cools. Do all four sides one side at a time. Do not allow all four sides to flow at once or the chip will shift.

We followed the advice of seto, & it worked! Removing the stand (it slides out of the back) was also necessary. We also carefully vacuumed the dust out. Thank you, thank you!!

I had lines running down the screen so I also took that back cover off with the mx26x3 and the green heat sink had come loose. I twisted it and pressed it back on an it seems to be working again.

After reading the other solutions I took it a step farther. By placing a small 12v fan out of a small printer or in my case an old Cisco 2900 switch. This fan was mounted into the tin shield that covers the whole board. I piggybacked onto the other fan using telephone splice connectors. I also drill small holes in the plastic back cover and now it pulls the hot air out.

Now let’s see how long it will last.

Maxent mx-26x3 video issue


The tv probably does'nt have a fast enough refresh rate to work with games properly. It should be in the manual for the tv, the lower the number the better. I think it's 12 milliseconds on that tv. Have a look here:Response Rates.

More than probably is the LCD control board, but this one is coming with the LCD panel. Could be the main PCB too and I suggest you to call a tech for a exact diagnosys because the parts implied are very expansive.

How can i fix static on my maxent lcd tv


26 inch maxent mx-26x3 and 32 inch, l2614xw02 some same parts
When i hear the word static, i think snow,
If while your watching tv and it looks like color snow pixels popping in and out all over the picture i did this to fix it.
look at main board you see a green heat sink,
left of that heat sink you see a 220 uf 16 volt capacitor that half surround by 22 uf capacitors,
change the 220 uf capacitor and snow is gone.
to get it off i just wiggle slowly back in forth until the old capacitor falls off,
then put some fresh solder on and new capacitor on and done.
use a radial electrolytic capacitor not the little metal one they had on
