Howzit Brother.

I had the same problem, but managed to repair it myself! There is no need to purchase a new
Power Supply! You can service the faulty PCB yourself, or give it to a Tehnician to service for you.
If you want to try service to yourself, here is how,

On the PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you will need to do the following<

Replace the following Capacitor's, CS704(Most important one), CS705, CS706, CS707, CS708, CS713, CS715.
Replace the TOP210PFI IC marked ICS02
Replace the PC123 OPTO marked ICS03
Replace the TL431 Shunt Regulator marked ICS04

This solution should work! email me on [email protected] if you have any other requests!

Need universal remote control code for maxent 42" plasma tv?

I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, or if you have any other questions, here are the codes and some simple steps to run through.

1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

Possible TV "Chop-Shop"

Hyundai and I would be surprised is Sampo use Samsung parts. They may have mixed and matched compatible parts. The Hyundai I'm working on has almost Samsung everything. I wouldn't worry too much so long as the service place has a good reputation and stands behind their work. They may have replaced a video board that had different spec ratings.

"No Signal" floating notice on Blue Screen - No other picture

If all connections and the tuner have the same issue, you either have a power supply issue or a bad digital board.

Screen blanks out

A digitalizing picture is most likly a bad connection on a screen driver cable or the driver itself is intermittant or the power supply has an intermittant filter on the substain B+ line. hope this hellps.
