1 Answer

Gateway GTW-P42M303 42 in. shut down and will not power on. No light on front panel.

TV will not p-ower on at all. The light on the front panel never indicates anything. Yellow, green, purple,... nothing. Help if you can. I have noticed simmilar issues reported all over this page. I get no noise indication, light indication or any such thing. I mean nothing. Like it is plugged into a dead outlet or something. Need help before i go f'ing crazy and put several holes in the damn thing.

My speciality is microelectronic, not the huge stuff, but I was asked by a buddy to take a look at his Plasma - Not exactly sure if this will help.

But there is a fuse in the power section (enclosed cage removed) it is an 8A Slo-Blow fuse. This fuse was blown when one of the huge electrolytic Caps shorted, or Dried out.

If you are inside the TV. There are 3 caps on one side, 450WV@ 220uF and 3 on the other side 250@ 560uf -

You should see visably the bubble on top of the shorted one. In my case I had one of each with different problem. 560uF oozed or had leaked electrolytic, and the 220uF had bubbled (rounded) on top usually indicating a short..

LED Indications

The front panel Status LED provides an indication of

the set's operation and the possible cause of a malfunction.

If an abnormal condition is indicated, perform the

Self Diagnostics procedure.

Self Diagnostics

To activate, press the front panel <ACTIVITY> &<CH

??> buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

The STATUS LED will then flash denoting a two digit

code.

• The number of flashes indicates the value of the

MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.

• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2

second.

• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the

(ones digit) of the Error Code.

• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.

Example: If the Error Code is "23", the LED

will flash two times, pause, and then flash three

times.

Table 2-2: LED Indications

Error Codes, descriiptions and the most likely cause of

the error are listed in Table 2-3.

Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down." The LED

will probably be indicating an abnormal

condition. If the TV is switched Off, AC is

removed, or a System Reset is performed, the

code automatically resets to "12" No Error.

See the Error Code Log to retrieve a history of

errors.

Note: Use the front panel buttons, not the remote

control.

Note: If there is no response, the front panel may be

locked by a V-Chip setting. To unlock, press

and hold <ACTIVITY> on the front panel for

8 seconds.

LED Indication Condition

Off Off (standby)

Green Power On

Slow Blink Green Power Off with Timer Set

Chances are there are cracked solder on one of the boards. This is a common problem with Gateways. If you're handy with soldering then this is an easy fix.
