Is good you have checked the main fuse and is good,what that means is you have voltage going in but you loose it down the line,if you have no indication of power(no lights ,no clicks) you need to check if you have the 5 volts that power the microprocessor witch is the brain and it uses 5 volts to aperate,the 5 volts come from a 12 volt regulator so you will have 12 volts in one side and 5 volts in the other,if you have lights or clicks when you push the power button you have 5 volts but one of the other voltages is missing,Check the horizontal output transistor for a short,if it is bad it likely cooked the safety resistor that gives him the voltage.If you are familiar with tv service you have a place to start but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.Let us know if you need more information or how it went.

Why won't my TV turn back on even manually??

total dead usually means the fuse---unplug the set for safety and remove back cover---follow power cord just inside and you will find the fuse in a snap in holder--check to see if bad.............if good let me know and I will try to assist you.

Toshiba model#57H94 dead set push power switch nothing want start up dead main ac fuse check good.Sam's Tv Service any help will be appreciate. Thanks

Check hori output and small blue high voltage capacitor 2k that feeds hori output transistor.
If these componets are OK then replace Both of the STK ICs they are big black ICs and will have PN# on them.example STK392-110.
Mats Electronics has ICs 1-800-628-1118
Encompass Parts Distribution has Free Service Manual for this Model# 57H94 you can print it out online.Go to their website.

My RCA TV just stopped working?

ok completly dead with no lights. this is indication of certain cuircit power loss. the main procesor is not receiving power. If i had it in my shop i would TRack the power. or backtrack the ac from the cord comes in through the courd and through the main fuse. then is converted to dc. 360 volts thats wherei would start. Now this is converted to 5, 3, and 7 volts. with regulators. which could be what was mention. I would recomend another tech. WARNING this set can hold that 360 volts even unpluged
