I have a Gateway gtw-p42m303 powers up to the warm up screen then light switches from green to standby orange. smells hot could be a power supply or capacitor?


Most likely a Y sustain module failure. Gateway does not make a set, so I would need a part number off of the board in order to give you an exact price of the part. Usually they're around $300.00

Sanyo plasma tv screen is black and theres no sound, but the green light is on.


No sound and no video is usually means the main board is bad. Green power indicated power supply might be OK.

GTW-P42M203 shut off and will not stay on


Chances are there are cracked solder on one of the boards. This is a common problem with Gateways. If you're handy with soldering then this is an easy fix.

The screen on my Gateway Plasma 42 in TV went blank tonight. There is sound.Model GTW-P42M203. We purchased it in 2003.


I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. The question will be, is the part still available? Before paying a TV repair person $75+ to diagnose the problem, ask yourself if you're willing to pay $250 minimum to fix this particular set. Also keep in mind that most TVs that old have a very limited number of replacement parts still available. Normally it will cost at least $75 to have the set looked at by a repair shop (diagnostics). If the part needed to complete the repair isn't available, you won't get that money back.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

I was able to resolder the pin shown in the picture and it fixed my problem as well.  I also used a razor and cut off the last socket for that pin on the connector and put a dedicated connector on so that it will take the heat a little better.  Also when I re-soldered that pin on the bottom side of the board I scraped away some of the protective coating around the solder puddle so that I could make a bigger solder puddle to add a little more strength and heat resistance.

Non working TV, can someone help???


Replace Q8023 (top224y) which you will find is blown apart or it's shorted, and the Q1 (2sk2662) which would check to be shorted inside the heat shrinked wrapped board next to the blue relay and the smd zener diode ZD8018 (shorted) along with the ceramic fuse F8001.
I don't remember the value for the zener diode but there's lots of them with the same color code. You will have to take one of the others off to test on a resistor jig to get it's value.
The 2SK2662 is a cross for the original.
