Gateway was sued Class action over LCD's and Plasmas they sold over a 2 year period. They resell 3rd party TV's that were very faulty, an immature design.
Here's what I learned about mine, which makes it limp through as a Computer monitor (both DVI and VCA) and halfway functional TV.
You have to connect a DVI source, on the Main Menu for the DVI input there is an option called "Factory Mode". scroll down to it with the CH buttons and select it with the vol button. The scroll to "initialize eprom", select and confirm it. After the "Waitting" words disappear, make sure you have a TV source connected, Then turn the TV off and on, using the hard switch in the back. The TV input should be defaulted to channel 10 or 11 now But you select a TV channel that has no TV signal on it (like channel 1 for example) , the whole TV input side will refuse to let you select it again, and you'll have a blank screen and have to start over.
That takes care of the blank screen thing Now the other problem is parental control is defaulting to "ON" or something, and you can't program channels. With the TV input Main Menu engaged, select "Setup Menu." If you have this problem, then you'll only see 2 options, all the TV input and channel programming options will be missing. You have to select Parental Control, and when it prompts you for a password hit the volume > button 4 times (or just wait for a minute.) This should bring back your TV System and auto prgram/manual search options.
Unfortunately, my TV doesn;t remember these setting very well if I select cable, it does better if I select "AIr". But at least it funtions - kind of. If you switch to your computer input, you probably will have to switch the monitor off and on from the back panel again. Mine always starts up with the menu onscreen. All this might bve less trouble if you have a the remote, I don;t know where mine went after the last move.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I had the same problem, and it drove me nuts. I called the store where we bought it since we still had a warrenty. They replaced a (horizontal deflection/scanning?) card on the set, and it got much better. I could, however still see a tiny amount of red, so the tech adjusted it again to show me how much better it was now, but in the process, there was a flash and a loud pop - and the set was no more. They ended up replacing the set. So, there is a solution, but be careful who installs it.

SOURCE: My lg tv wont turn on.
First, I would try leaving the TV unplugged for an hour so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
If this doesn't work, it maybe something simple like a blown fuses inside the TV that needs replacing.Radio Shack or some electronic store will carry the fuses.
If the other two ideas doesn't solve it, we're talking about a power supply board related problem. I can't actually look at your TV over the internet. But, the most common problem with flat panel TV are the power supply board for the screen itself and the main power supply board for the rest of the TV. Commonly a bad capacitor or transformer will be on the board.
If you have some electronic experience and want to repair it yourself, you can sometimes find a Service Manual for your TV over the internet. Normally, costs less than $20. It will have diagrams, schematics, and part number list for the TV.
