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!

    Ok, after searching high and low for the fuses and driving over 100 miles to get them, as soon as I plugged it in.... POOF! There goes the fuse. There is what looks like a transistor of some kind right next to the fuse which looks blown up as well. I guess it's time to take it to a professional?

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

Transformers and fuses keep blowing


If you are where it's warm and you are using air conditioning, have the technician check the coil in the relay in the outdoor unit. I replaced 2 transformers before I figured out the coil was shorted out and drawing too much current.
