Question about Maxent MX-42XM11 Television

1 Answer

I am hearing a loud hum from the back of my tv. It seems to be louder when there is more white on the tv. When there darker colors on the tv it becomes less loud. Is this a bad thing or is just a function of the tv?

Very bad - that hum comes from the power source that is close to death and it's no longer capable of handling the extra power required by a brightly lit screen with ease. Stop the tv open it's back cover and look on the power source for aged components - especially failing capacitor.

No picture or sound


Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek

Projection tv has really loud buzz or hum


You may not see any deterioration in the picture when the color wheel begins to go bad. The noise will get louder and eventually, it will shut down or the wheel will shatter while the motor continues to spin. If that happens, you'll have a black and white picture.

If its a Samsung DLP that is mercury vapor lamp driven, its a safe bet the color wheel is going bad.
