    This flatscreen model GWT-P42M303 shorted the 15v and I isolated it to
    pn 4921QP1002B. There are two of these driver hybrid thingees and one
    is shorted but finding parts seems to be a problem. Any ideas?
     
  2. Gateway does not even support out-of warranty repair. No factory service -
    nothing. If you call them they'll tell you to try to find some local
    service. Of course they don't sell parts or service literature, so "local
    service" is virtually impossible. These companies should be put out of
    business for these practices.

    I found places that cannibalize units but they did not have the exact
    part number. I think it may be the same part as the board names are
    the same Y-SUS and the part numbers are almost the same but a
    panasonic board.
