Question about Gateway LCD26TV 26 in. Television

1 Answer

I own a Gateway GTW L26M103 LCD Television. When the set is turned off, the power button, which normally glows orange, now glows yellow, at which point the set cannot be reactivated. Unplugging the set does not alleviate the problem, nor does turning the set off and on using the switch at the bottom of the set, either of which might have been able to "reset" a computer or other component, but apparently not so for the television. The remote is useless, and the power button on the set does not work either. Is there a short in the on-off switch? Can this problem be fixed? Or is this a design flaw in the set which would leave me no option but to replace the whole thing (which would be a tremendous waste)?

The unit will not switch on from the remote or the button which only glows orange and will not turn blue. What can be done?


Take it to a repair shop, the orange glow signals a fault in the power source of the tv and it must be fixed by a pro.

I have a Gateway gtw-p42m303 powers up to the warm up screen then light switches from green to standby orange. smells hot could be a power supply or capacitor?


Most likely a Y sustain module failure. Gateway does not make a set, so I would need a part number off of the board in order to give you an exact price of the part. Usually they're around $300.00

Gateway gtw p42m303 promblem need advice


I think you need a control PCB.

If the Set has an LG Screen, which I think it does, it is going to be a PDP42X2.

They commonly produce vertical Red and or Yellow lines that come and go.

6871QCH060Q is the boards part number.

You should just check it is an LG PDP42X2 by peering through the holes in the top, use a flashlight, there are some labels along the inside at the top.

One will have the Screen number on it.. LG PDP42X2 or PDP42X2A.

Blank Screen/Powers up, Power LED can be switched from ON (Green) to STANDBY (Red)


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.
