Question about Gateway GTW-P42M303 42 in. Plasma Television
My Gateway 42" Plasma is about 3 years old. About one month it started buzzing very noticeably. It gets very loud now, especially when the screen is on a menu screen.
The picture is starting to go as well. When it turns on it the images shake in weird colors. This seems to slowly go away after the tv warms up. There are also images that kind of remain from a previous scene from a show that lingers and shakes a few seconds then it disappears.
Any idea what is wrong? I'm almost ready to dump it and buy a cheap LCD Vizio. But I thought it may be worth trying to fix it.
I have the same problem with the noise and the video quality is ****, my friend gave it to me to see if i could fix it, i took it apart and the sound is coming from either an orange thing or a capacitor, could it be an overload capacitor where the sound is a bunch of sparks flying through the dielectric?
