Question about Sony Bravia KDL-40S4100 40 in. LCD TV
I bought a new LCD TV Sony Bravia LCD HDTV KDL-40S4100. When I plugged it in, it tripped the fuse in the house, shutting the electricity in two rooms. On the same power outlet I used to have Insignia 42" LCD TV, with Xbox 360, PS3, Cable Box, and it never tripped the fuse.
With Sony it is happening all the time, I tried Power Surge protector, direct to power wall outlet.
Intresting thing is that I can watch TV, play video games for a long periods of time without any problems. Tripping of the fuse only happens when I connect more appliances in these two rooms and only in the moment I am pressing the power button on Sony LCD TV.
Can anybody give me some advice how to fix this, please?
These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?
