Question about Projection Televisions

A gateway plasma tv model gtw-p50m103, no longer powers on. For awhile the tv would be on and then just turn off, now we get no picture. No lights come on the front of the tv. For a long time there was a power button problem on the front of the tv,when we would turn on the tv with the button on the front the tv would just turn off right away.

The problem is most likely the power board failed, or possibly a fuse. Power button problem would indicate either the button is not working properly or the power board has a problem.

Would suggest to have it looked at by a professional to confirm what the problem is before replacing parts other than fuses (cheap parts)

Either the power button had failed completely or you have a defective power board inside.

The only way to find out is having the tv taken apart and inspected by a technician.

    The TV must be taken apart, first the power switch must be tested, if this is fine the power board must be tested. First looking for bulged capacitors and components that had blown, and then using a multimeter.
    The job must be done by a technician.

    This should also mount on your model, call the seller to order the right part for your model if you need to replace the power board.

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for awhile.no picture or sound


Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.

hello. The problem you are having has haunted Gateway ever since they went into the television business. Here is a link to an article about the issue. http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20051214/0211209.shtml

Getting back to your set, I would definitely not put one penny into a repair. Instead, cut your losses and upgrade to digital, right now the prices are shockingly low. good luck with it.

Check your cables and TV input settings.  Can you get to the on screen menu?  Does anything appear on the screen when the tv is on?

the problem is going to be internal and i would recommend a repair serivce.

Potential causes for the problem are:
  • Turning the main power on while the tv is plugged into the outlet.
  • A power surge or dip
  • The tv being bumped or dropped
  • the tv being exposed to warm or cold temperatures.
