the 15v is shorted to the ysus board and probably one of the two big heat sinks with the number 4921QP1002B is the cause. If you don't repair it can I have it for parts?

SOURCE: Slow start
(I'm copying a guest's comment above. What Gateway told him does seem to work - although in my case, the monitor was slow to start when plugged directly into the wall, and it was immediately fixed when I plugged it back into a heavy duty power bar.)
hey, I had the same problem. Gateway told me "Plug the monitor power plug directly into a wall electrical outlet
or a different wall outlet by removing any surge suppressors." I did that and it works. It might be a certain kind of power bar they do not like. It worked for me so try that and see if that helps.

I just took the back off my Gateway for a simular problem
I just took the screws out of the legs on the back of the set and all the screws around the edge then the support where the legs were attached and then the screws around the box with all the video jacks that pulls off. Hope this helps

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.
