Question about Gateway GTW-P42M303 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

No sound lost volume control

It lost sound gradually one day the volume disappeared 2 separate times before returning after I believe I turned the TV off then came back to it later, then a day or two later the sound was completely gone. The volume was never turned up loud as I sit 7 feet away, so could it be the speakers or some other small component that runs to the speakers?

I have provided instructions on how you can program your remote to your TV. Without knowing the brand TV you have, I have provided a link with the codes you can try.

Program to TV:

Remotes: Basic (Television Only)
1. Turn the Television On.
2. Press and hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
4. Press OK. Note: The LED will flash three times.
5. Test functionality with the TV.
6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

Power Scan:

Remote: Basic Remote (Television Only)
1. Turn the Television On.
2. Press and hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes.
3. Press and release the TV Power button.
4. Press and release the Up or Down Arrow on the remote until the television turns off.
5. After the television turns off, press and release the OK button.
6. Test functionality with the TV.
7. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.

The link for the remote codes are at the bottom of the page. Select your receiver type and then your TV brand to get the codes.

We have a DVR hooked up to our 1989-99 Mitsubishi TV (floor model) still in amazing working condition. The remote control for that TV never allowed us to put the TV on mute. If the mute botton was...


Well, without knowing the exact model of tv and remote, I can just give my best guess.
Try using the volume up/down on the TV and / or the remote.
On the TV, try pressing both the volume up and down at the same time.
Stick the remote right in the face of the TV (direct in front of the remote sensor) and hit the mute button.
Try tapping the mute button in very short single bursts rather than pressing it for a half second like you would any other button.
If any of those work, please come back and reply with the model of the TV and remote, because someone somewhere probably has the same issue and would love to have it solved!

The volume keeps disappearing on the left speaker but will return with a crack if the volume is increased substantially


Sounds like there is might be dirty contacts inside the volume potentiometer I would suggest spaying the control with a contact spay which will clean and lubricate the control.

Too much yellow does not adjust with normal drop screen adjustments. can i adjust the light beams.on my philips 50"


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} 1. Turn the green screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
2. Turn the red screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
3. Turn the blue screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
4. If the screen still appears too bright after proper G-2 adjustment, you need to adjust the sub-bright adjustment in the service menu
control down until screen cut-off. (Service data Range is usually 21 to 25 in the Service menu, for Sony sets you first go to category "MCP2", & then adjustment item 01( "SBRT")= subright.
For electrical the focus, put on the screen a clear picture of your choice thru an input of the TV set from a DVD, then pause the playback of the DVD Look into each color and rock that color focus control back and forth (turn the control one way then the other way slowing down as the picture goes into the best focus. till the picture looks sharp do each color till they all look in focus. NOTE: it is best to look into each color tube to achieve the best electrical focus. For optical focus please follow the manual lens adjustment in the sets service manual

Problem with proscan 19LA25Q


Watching a movie tonight...and slowly there was odd behavior from the screen. No volume at first, then flickering, fragmenting and now, as the others only shows the red power. I have noticed some strange flickering the past 2 weeks or so. I thought it may be the cable, so did not concern myself too much. I believed that was the problem tonight as well. But the screen is definately not responding to the remote or manual button.

Thanks

it says to replace the control box for no sound.
thats the main board to you.
I would use external speakers as they sound better anyway.
