Re: fuse blowout

Every time you put in that fuse and it sparks your probably causing more circuit damage as a fuse very very rarly goes bad for no reason.. Ok to the subject at hand. it you put back in a good fuse WITHOUT PLUGGING IN!! Next measure with an olm meter across the two legs on the plug on the end of the wire(the part you normally plug in.) Is there a short circuit?? yes? I would then start trouble shooting the front end of your main power supply like bridge recifyers,main b+ capacitor, the capacitor that goes across the ac line input as well as an VDR can short out in a surge. Now if that dosent get you anywhere your gonna need a schematic diagram. You can get that from howard sams photo facts. It available on line as a PDF for about 27.50. If you dont know what Im saying here then I really cant help you any farther and you will need to take the set to a quilified repair person as a tv even unplugged can hold 100's of volts. Now if you do know what your doing with solid state repairs by all means get the schematic and post it here for us to look at and we can assist you with this repair. Good Luck

Crt spark flyback

If fly-back transformer gets sparks, no doubt, the horizontal output transistor will blow out, at the instance you switch ON the set. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window. I think the site will help you like people so much. Good luck.

Plug in no power

Check the fuse inside the TV. If fuse blows, there is a problem elsewhere.

The initial spark you are mentioning is due to degaussing coil. This is not routed through fuse.

TV won't turn on

take the back off the tv and inspect the glass fuse off the ac power cord, it will probably be black and open, this is a common problem, it blows because the degaussing circuit works too slow, the original fuse is an 6.3 amp fuse, you need to replace it with a 6.3 amp slow blow or a 7 or 8 amp fuse to keep it from blowing, if you put an original 6.3 amp fast blow fuse in it, it will work for a while, but will blow again someday.

Panasonic #ct32hc43g; no power when power button pushed(yes its' plugged in and the plug works fine with other electic items )

There are many causes for this set to have no power, if you get no red light at all a common fault is the 6.3 amp main fuse blowing in this set. It is because the timing unit for the degaussing coil has changed over time and is staying on just a little to long causing the fuse to blow. A technician will put a 7 amp fuse in as a replacement, Do not use a fuse of any higher value or you will have a fire hazard. If the 7 amp fuse blows then you either have another power related issue or the timming unit has gone way out of tolarance and need changed.

If you have no experience inside of a tv, and don't understand the hazards of electrical shock even with the tv unplugged i would not attempt to open the set up and do this yourself.
A service call from a technician could run around $100.00.

On/off - fuse blows out

Use a higher amp fuse this should solve your problem if its not a electrical fault in the set.

Every fuse blows that I put in

Okay, it's not the fuse. It drawing to much current and that's the trouble. You better call the repairman.

How to replace fuse on sanyo tv DS 24424

Actually, when a fuse blows, most of the time there is something that went bad and is causing the fuse to blow. Some TVs don't use the typical glass fuses. Instead the might use a surface mount soldered component. These components are usually labeled with the letter F for fuse. Example would be F1 or F2. They are usually found near the power cord or near the power supply. Hope this helps...

32'' Panasonic TV, 4 yrs old, keeps blowing the fuse

Hi Mendi.
I had a similar problem, in that I could not find the proper fuse for my set. I bought a bit higher amp fuse from Radio Shack and it ended up blowing a couple months later. I've since pulled the TV down and replaced it with an LCD set, so I've solved my problem.

But, to address yours, I don't think the amp difference would not be the problem. Likely, there is a power issue on your set causing it to draw more amps and become out of specification. Using a higher amp fuse would buy you more 'capacity', but if its blowing those too (repeatedly), its likely a real problem in the set. I'm not a TV technician, so I can't tell you why. I'd suggest taking the thing in for service (cheaper than the house call) or if that is too expensive, looking at putting your money into a set that won't give you those problems. Or, just keep replacing the fuse until it doesn't fix the problem.

Sorry I cant help much more.

Sony Triniton Fuse Blows

You will have to trouble shoot the board down to the component level I'm afraid. I would for sure pull out the transistors or the FETs to get a good reading on the parts.
