Outside transformer blew, now TV doesn't work

The other day I had a transformer go down in my neighborhood. The TV does not work now. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be? Does this TV have a fuse that can be replaced, possibly power supply? This thing cost too much to throw in the trash!

If the fuse is blown black, you should never ever put in another fuse as a fuse will not blow up like that for no reason, as a fuse is there to prvent further damage to the set. and damage to other parts.

I hope is only a fuse and it will not be hard to find it should be close to where the power cord goes in and it has to be replaced with the same amps and size.Make sure the set is not plug in whe you remove the lower back and once you replace it put the back cover on and plug it in,if more damage is present it will blow up again right away or it will blow up when you push the power button,I hope it doesn't but if it does you will need someone qualified to check the rest.Be careful

In the old days that means your "flyback transformer"needs to be replaced.

Take it to a TV tech or junk it and buy a new one. That might be cheaper.

Does your provider offer premium services, like HBO or STARZ? If so, there's encrypted channels on your cable network. You are not suppose to be able to tune those channels, that's why they encrypt them. These channels travel on the same wire to everyone's home in your neighborhood. If you have the equipment (cablebox) and a paid subscription, you will be able to view these channels

DVD Stopped Working

You can try to place a new fuse in there with the same current and voltage ratings. If the new fuse blows, it means there is a short circuit.

Tv not showing a picture

Hello e26pitts,

If the line is horizontal then it could be a problem in your vertical deflection section, if the line is vertical then the problem is in your horizontal deflection section. Now for a little more detail.

If Horizontal line is present the vertical section of the yoke transformer is nit responding to current flowing through it due to being open, or the vertical coupling capacitor is open, or even the vertical drive transistor might be defective.

If Vertical line is present the horizontal section of the yoke transformer might be bad. Now this gets kind is easy in a way, because the yoke would be the sole cause of your problem here (maybe there is some circuitry doing some horizontal coupling check that to) because the horizontal section controls other functions that would also respond if this were a horizontal drive issue. In any event these problems should be checked by a qualified TV technician, I would suggest that you take the TV to a repair shop to have it worked on.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Remote signal not received?

If u can get to the INSIDE front, clean the window of the receiver eye.(of cause the outside also!) If the wires going to the board can be unpluged, unplug, the push it back in. Possable that the receiver eye circuit is too heated up.Put a small (square boxed computer type fan) in the back of the tv to cool it down some.If u know how to "glue" a HEATSINK to the chip to get rid of the heat, may help.
note: it is possable that BOTH regulor and universal r/c are intermittance (sometimes works, sometimes don't work)

High-pitched noise when I turn on the tv

No I think your problem is the horizontal output transistor blew out an that was a result of the flyback transformer going out or blowing up.. Good Luck TO you.
