Question about Gateway PLSM42TV 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
My gateway plasma has a blue screen. this was preceded by the picture appearing to be whitewashed. i've tried uplugging it and reconnecting it but nothing seems to work.
Just fixed my Gateway P46M103. I was getting a picture, sometimes it was clear as long as the picture scene didn't change - if the scene changed I would get white lines up and down the screen. Seems there is a problem with the power board and if not fixed in time can fry other boards or components. If you know how to work on electronics, download the service manual, look over it so you can identify the boards... Remove the back and take a look at the YSUS connector on the left side of the power board. Mine was arching when I slightly moved the cable - WARNING - DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING - (THERE IS 160vdc and it will BITE YOU) - Anyway, remove the bracket and the board and with a magnifying glass inspect the solder points for the connector - I had five cracked/cold solder joints causing voltage flux. I verified and adjusted the Vs, Vw, and Vxg to specs with a DVM. TV now looks excellent.
