I have a 42" Phillips LCD HDtv. Recently I have had issues with the picture flickering out for a second and half the screen remaining black. After the second, the picture was back to normal. It then escalated to flickering out and instead of a black picture, it was (what I can only describe as) red fireworks... and then it went back to normal. One day it just didn't turn on. The warranty technician came out and replaced the SSB, after installing he said that he needed to also order a 'Y Sustain' (not sure if that's the spelling). After that I was told that the 'Y Sustain' was on indefinite backorder. Another technician said they had never even heard of that part. I'd like to fix my tv. Help please!

Re: Have you heard of the 'Y Sustain' part?
The problem you have is with the YSUS board. Ask again the technician about it. If you have problems finding it, Go to ebays a try to find it there. I know that there you can find this kind of products.

Have you tried to do a "reset" ALL modern electronic items often get "locked up" and unplugging them from the wall will often get them going again. Unplug for at LEAST 30 seconds--then try again. If this does not help--the SMPS board may have failed on you. A good repair shop may be able to repair the board instead of replace it.
Hi, there, pleasy clarify the following:
What is your Gateway model?
Is your TV an older tube type or a new HDTV? Does it have other input ports besides the standard cable input and the RCA you mentioned? You may be able to use S-Video if your laptop has the output port and so does your old TV. Or if you have a newer laptop that includes DVI and you have an HDTV, then you can use a DVI to HDMI cable which by the way will result in the best image quality.
You cannot connect VGA OUT to component IN on your TV without using a converter. However, You can connect VGA OUT from your laptop to VGA in on your TV using a VGA cable just as long as your TV has VGA in. You will need to hold the FUNCTION or FN key on your laptop while press the F4 or F10, whichever F key has the picture of the monitor on it. This will switch your laptop from LCD to external display or both.
Are you connected using R,G,B (component) cables? Check them to make sure they are in firmly - if so, then try a new set - that may very well fix the rolling issue. (Unless the rolling is caused by poor antenna reception).
Press "Sleep" on the original remote control for this TV if you still have it until the TV says "Sleep OFF".
If no strong TV signal is detected, this unit goes into sleep mode, which may explain Tuner B shutting off after 5 minutes.
