Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Maxent 50X3 seems to function normally in all respects except for the picture flashes. Flickering black and gray with big bursts of white and no color. Behind all this can the program content can intermittently be recognized. jim

    When I switch the input to monitor the DVD or VCR ( I still use it once in a while) the screen stays the same. I never get the normal blue screen when it switches inputs. These all use standard video ins not HDMI. Which is my main TV hookup. ATT U-verse stuff works fine with another monitor. Iam unable to verify HDMI at this point but normal line outs work with another TV.

The problem seems to be related to the main A/V board or due to faulty buffers. Try another input source other than HDMI and see if the problem persists. If you can get me a picture of the screen when its flickering that would be of mighty help!

    Hmmm.. Then its not what I though. Can you please take a picture of the screen and upload it so that I can have a look?

Maxent 60 in lcd tv flickers

I had the same problem with my 50 inch Maxent, found a solution on the internet that seemed too good to be true, but I replaced a part that cost me $1.38 at Radio Shack and my tv is as good as new. Go to this link for details and even includes pictures. All you need is a scredriver (to remove back cover) and a soldering iron - repair is actually very easy. Good Luck!

My Maxent mx-50x3 has a intermitten problem, when I turn it on, it does not have a picture, 5 minutes later it will flicker than a couple minutes more it has a picture while flickering, another ten minutes...

i had the similar problem. i'm not a tech but like to take stuff apart to find the problem. on my tv i took the back completely off. do not touch the boards. if you follow the power supply from the plug up two boards i found a small white adjustment screw. it was just up and to the right slightly from the plug. with a small screw driver i turned it slightly to the right and the flickering and delayed picture went away. couldn't tell you why it worked but it did. hope this helps, saved us $800 to buy a new tv.

When tv turned on it only has gray , black and white bars.

Sounds like burst caps in the power supply. If that is the case, replacing the vented caps (burst tops) should restore the set to normal operation.

I have picture but no sound on my maxent plasma tv?

Check your mute control off/on status. If OK check speaker. If speaker is Ok, it is a sound IC problem. Contact service center.

I have a skinny line going down my tv it looks like a laser beam

Sounds like you have a row of pixels that have failed. Check and see if it is under warranty, If not it can be very pricey to repair.

Yes I had this problem. Unplug the power cord for 1 min then plug it back in. The tv will reset and the buttons then work again.
