    Our Gateway TV went out last week. We seemed to have a small surge and the TV went out. Tried the back pwr button, unplugging and still nothing. No hum, noise, lights, nothing.

    Gateway Plasma GTW-P42M403 TV, wont turn on, no led light, no picture, no sound, it's like it's not getting power at all. I made sure it was plugged in well and into a good source, is it time for a new tv or is this a rather simple fix?

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.

My Zenith plasma TV blinks green 4 times then goes red, No picture. None of the Capasitors are blown.


I had AWFUL customer service. (Sherry is DREADFUL her # is 1-877-543-8325 she is in"executive services". Ask to speak to her directly...if you would like ZERO help.)

They WILL NOT extend the warranty, even though they know there is a defect with this AND other models. Zenith name on the front...LG guts in the inside.
Ours turns on, screen black and then clicks three times and then turns back off.

Mt 42" gateway plasma purchesed in 2003? suddenly


it is going in shutdown mode due to a defective electronic component, it could also be the power supply check for swollen capacitors (inside the TV) they are small alluminium cans with a plastic shrink with numbers and make printed on them, the tops should be FLAT not rounded (about to burst)

Good luck!

Plasma Hyundai 42'' TV ,NO SOUND OR PICTURE


most times then not it's the capacitors on your power board that blew there for not supplying the tv with enough power if you open it up and check the capacitors it should be leaking some kind of liquid or the tops have bubbled up. its an easy fix cost>>2 dollars each

52" plasma tv - turns on - and I hear something reset inside


i hear a clicking noise- the clicking noise is most likely you ballast trying to power the lamp, but failing. this may indicate a defective ballast if you have recenty purchased a new lamp.I recomend you have your lamp tested to help narrow down the cause of the defect. It's highly unlikely for a new lamp to be dead on arrival

I was able to resolder the pin shown in the picture and it fixed my problem as well.  I also used a razor and cut off the last socket for that pin on the connector and put a dedicated connector on so that it will take the heat a little better.  Also when I re-soldered that pin on the bottom side of the board I scraped away some of the protective coating around the solder puddle so that I could make a bigger solder puddle to add a little more strength and heat resistance.

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..

Non working TV, can someone help???


Replace Q8023 (top224y) which you will find is blown apart or it's shorted, and the Q1 (2sk2662) which would check to be shorted inside the heat shrinked wrapped board next to the blue relay and the smd zener diode ZD8018 (shorted) along with the ceramic fuse F8001.
I don't remember the value for the zener diode but there's lots of them with the same color code. You will have to take one of the others off to test on a resistor jig to get it's value.
The 2SK2662 is a cross for the original.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
