Question about Maxent MX-42HPM20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Brand New and already broken

I just took the TV out of the box today. Plugged it in and enjoyed a beautiful picture for about a 1/2 hour. Then, the picture started to 'burn out' and the TV made a horrible loud humming noise. Now, the TV has no picture, just the horrible humming sound. I can't figure out what may have caused this...any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

There is a short on one of the boards. The power supply may have also been damaged. You should take the set back to the dealer for an exchange.

I would sugget to buy a quality brand name if you want high reliability.

Can Chromecast damage TV? I recently bought a Chromecast and it worked fine. Then the picture disappeared, but I still had sound. Today I reconnected it to test it, and one hour later I have no sound


It won't damage the TV. Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

I have a sony kv 28ds20 television. It has a digital reciever inbuilt, but when i scan for channels it does not find anything, the ariel is brand new and i have tested it with other digital devices so i...


The tuner in this tv is from the first generation of digital tuners. It cannot even handle channel numbers above 99. The technology doesn't support the latest transmission standard, despite Sony describing it as future proof when it was launched. Having said all that the picture and sound for a standard definition tv are far better than almost any plasma or lcd on the market today. Everyone has been seduced by large screens.Your best bet is to buy a digital tuner, set its output to component and connect it up to the RGB input on the tv. (Scart 1, I think) Enjoy

New flat screen hdtv has a fuzzy picture


Yes you will get a better picture quality out of a cable box if you get an HD cable box.
The reason you are getting the diminished picture is due to the signal you are feeding the TV is an analog signal. The newer HD TV's are made for digital TV and this older technology shows all its flaws on this type of TV.

When you get the new box understand that the same channels you are getting plugged directly into the tv are still going to have some grainy look to them but the good thing is that a lot of them are starting to be rebroadcast on HD channels and that is where your new toy will truly shine.

Enjoy your new TV...

Good Luck...

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

Brand new TV and it has a beautiful picture but no sound any suggestions?


S-video does NOT carry audio.

You'll have to get some RCA audio cable and connect them to the audio in ports associated with the S-Video input.
