Hello,

Gateways are an absolute nightmare to work on. Basically, there are no parts available for them, except from Gateway, who used new sets parted out, and they charged incredible amounts for service calls (if you were lucky enough to live in a metro area with a gateway store nearby).

Most shops will turn the away. The Y-sus and X-sus boards are very prone to problems, and unfortunately, are not available for replacement.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Especially considering how much you probably paid for this TV. I have a Gateway, but only because it was free, and I have to repair it every 6 months.

I have a Gateway Plasma TV, model GTW-P46M103. I am not getting a picture or sound.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

The menu pops up on starting and continues to scroll. The front panel buttons on the TV do not do what they are supposed to do (i.e. Vol button changes input option, etc.)


i have the gtw-p42m102 and it did the scrolling thing and i had the image board dpwb11393-1g-l changed and it worked fine for 2 years.Now it made a pop like a firecracker and i am working in it now.

Gateway GTW-P42M102 / Won't come on


Check the panel voltages, and start unplugging the cables to each PCB and check the voltages each time, if the voltages come back up the its probably the PCB that is disconnected, in most case its the logic main board. Hope this helps
