Recently, I dropped HBO with my cable company and there dont have a box. Since the Maxent 42 is only a monitor and doesnot have a tuner...there is no where to plug cable from the wall to the tv.
Solution...plug cable from wall to VCR/DVD and then use RCA cables (Red,White and Yellow cables) from output from VCR/DVD. works great.

See if you can reset the electronics to factory defaults. Also check with the mfg about this. If nothing works you have one sick puppy on your hands.

Try this - turn set on then pull the power plug. Then push and hold the power button to on position for a few minutes.
Release button and plug back in Turn on and see what happens.

Hello Greg Y,
The POP came from the part that is under the big heatsink, That part fails due to heat.
I would recommend to add a cooling fan on top of the heatsink to keep the temperature lower and that would extend the life expectancy.
Find a 9 to 12 volts source to connect the fan if you decide to install it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Connect the antenna at its socket, select the input to "TV" and then re-tune it. Refer its user manual for more about how to tune it. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

When this happens you hope that the only thing wrong is that the inverter(s) are loose, and this is usually the case. If the inverter cable(s) are checked and that is not the problem, the next thing to check would be the inverter board, which would have to be replaced in its entirety. For non technical troubleshooting you can try leaving the television unplugged for as long as a day or so or keep turning it on and off to try and get the picture back until repairs can be completed on it.

Take it to a repair shop for a screen replacement.

As far as I know the plazma path has begun to fail. The fix is to replace the screen.
