There are several things that can cause it. You are best to have an expert technician come in and take some test on it in order to determine if it is from vertical blanking failure or something else. It is not easy to fix this yourself, if you have no experience, because there are a lot of parts that have to be removed before you can reach the components. It could be as simple as a loose connector ribbon or a bust capacitor, but it could also be more complicated. Hence, in my honest opinion, better get a qualified technician.

Hope that helps!

After a few minutes of being on my tv freezes


I'm not a T.v. expert but could it be over heating. Is the ventilation covered or filled with dust? Try unplugging it and take an air can to the vents to blow out any dust it's collected over time.

Trying to put on closed caption on gateway tv 42 inch-a large black screen appears


don't know if CC can be used when watching a DVD. seems to me that it would cause a conflict on the display where the dvd is sending the image which is really not part of the TVs input control options.
CC is usually related to the digital signal from signal broadcasts and not video images coming from an external source. if it was controlled i would think it would be from the dvd remote controller. not the tv.

Power supply is damage


Hi,

Good day. For your power supply you better bring it to the nearest technical repair store. Plasma tv pc desktop are very sensitive and its dangerous if your just going to replace the power supply by yourself. Look for a number to contact for assistance on the receipt you got when you purchase the device. They will be able to give you suggestions in fixing the power supply. Hope this information help resolve your problem.

Thanks for using fixya and have a great day.
