As I recall, I found a unit in the dumpster and took it home to check out. I turned it on and had power display but no heat. Started looking around for model number and other info.
As I was moving it I heard oil sizzling. The unit has worked since then. There are bimetallic switches inside of them. They tend to stick. Moving it around (dumpster trip, my trip home) allowed it to return to its proper position (normally closed).
I have ran into this with many coffee makers, bounce them around a bit and the sensor will reset.
Hope this helps you!!
my t.v. didn't have a blown fuse, so my fix may not work for you. mine would turn on and read "digital television" then go into "calibration" or "service" mode where the screen shows changing colors without ever showing a picture. by chatting online with the service department (something you may want to do), i found that by using the original remote for my t.v. i could easily hit two buttons on it to bring it out of that mode. i found one after searching extensively on amazon, bought it for $20 and this t.v. found in a dumpster has been working like new ever since. more serious problems with an emerson t.v. may not be worth putting money into as they're a low end brand of electronics.
I found a Magellan Roadmate in the dumpster when I was dumping the trash off my truck.They were even so kind to leave the charging cord.I figured out that the charging cord wasn't connecting to the unit when plugged in.It took 20 minutes to figure out how to pop the case open(retainer tabs on all sides in addition to the screws).Once opened up,it took 5 minutes to repair the solder connections from the power socket to he circuit board.Works like new!
I would pull the cover off to see if the tube and the board on the CRT are not damaged. If it looks ok, turn set on and observe if there is any activity visible at the neck of the CRT (light). Wehn a set with a large tube starts-up, it wil make a fuzzt crackle noise fro the high voltage charge in the tube. If non of this is happening, check main board for cracks.
Unit is probably salvageable for point to point solder job, but as far aspart replacement for HV power supply, I would not do it. It is not cost effective.
