Question about Gateway PLSM46TV 46 in. Television

Open Question

I have a gtw-p46m103. it is dead. when you plug it in it clicks but does nothing. It started out by locking up, you couldnt turn it off,run the menu,change channils or do anything until you unpluged it,let it set then plug it back in. sometimes the little light in the front would come on and it would work for awhile then lock up again. now it just clicks when pluged in. no light or anything. there is a little yellow light on the video prossesing board upper left corner that lights and the relay on the power supply clicks when first pluged in. can you help me fix this problem or help me troubleshoot it? maby this is a common problem, I HOPE. thanks steve.

If the insurance already paid you for it and this could be a 2nd TV for you if you repair it then my opinion would be that it is worth having someone come look at it and give you an estimate for the repair. Call and find out if they give free estimates or what it would cost to come to the home. Most likely the whole repair is going to be around the $500 anyway but its cheaper than buying another one. If you can't afford it then if you bought the same model keep it for parts on the new one. Hope this helps and ask more if you need to.
Thanks

You're going to need to open up the tv and do some resoldering of some components. If you don't want to do the soldering find someone who can. Or if all else fails I'll take it off your hands just let me know.

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.
http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
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.

Main Power Board


The power supply board can be changed without any knowledge of repair but there are sometimes adjustments necessary if the picture is not normal. Many times it is fine. There a 4-5 voltage adjustments that would take some knowledge and a meter to accomplish. You need to hope it was diagnosed properly first. If it is completely dead the p.s is a good possibility. If it clicks on then back off almost immediately it is not likely the power supply.

I actually bought the 5 year warranty when we purchased this new and it was still under warranty. Gateway is sending us a brand new TV. No need for me to try to fix this, but thanks to all involved.

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


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..
