TX-R3079WHX/XAA Blown fuse

Hello, My TX-R3079WHX/XAA was working fine and the only fuse I could find on the board had blown, It looks like the old car fuses. I source a replacement fuse; and the set worked for two weeks and blew it again. The set is plugged into a surge protector. I?m not scared to learn and fairly handy with electronic and soldiering, what should I look for that would cause this intermittent surge or failure? The set works fine unless the fuse is blown then nothing, its elevated out in the open and under a roof so I don?t believe water and excessive heat are an issue. Thanks!

Snakehead, Thanks for the suggestions; I'll check out the kit you mentioned. Since the TV?s death and the lack of warranty its become a hanger for my wife?s cloths. I will be happy to get it going again! - JT

Re: TX-R3079WHX/XAA Blown fuse

Greetings from belize make good checks in your power supply replace your voltage regulator it has an short which is activated after accumulating heat.change the horizontal transistor.and the bias diode the feeds to the B+ to the flyback.if that does not solve the problem replace the flyback.your problem is intermittent so you cannot check voltage just replace components matter of fact replace all the components in the power supply you can buy a kit from in miami florida.good luck.

My LG TV model 42PC5D has a black stripe with red blue and green lines in it. I was told that its cold solder joints but when I put pressure on the boards the problem does not go away, does anyone know...

Hello, have you checked the fuses on the y sustain board and the x sustain board to see if they are blown? If one is blown you will need to replace the whole board because if you replace the fuse chances are it will blow the control board. Hope this helps.

Sony 6060F blown fuse

there is a standard procedure for proper replacement of blown fuse: CRT TVs: unplug degaussing coil, replace blown fuse with 2amp fuse and turn on the set. If it works, reconnect degaussing coil, replace the fuse with correct value(5-8) amp, depends on model(see fuse note next to holder). Enjoy the show! If in a process of replacing the blown fuse with 2amp w/o degaussing coil it blows again, forget about the next step. Set need repair. It could be an easy one, replacing 1 or 2 shorted diodes or bridge rectifier, but could be real piece of work if the power supply got "fried". If your knowledge won't go further, than fuse replacement, I'd recommend local TV repair shop.
good luck,

TV Blows internal fuse

You will have to find the source of a major short in your power supply.Since it's a 5A i assume i imagine that's where the short is.

Tv wont turn on

Hello tvlover, The outage actually is not the problem but the spike that happened when your power came back on did the damage. That aside, you may just have a blown fuse. If you are able to and feel comfortable work with electronics, with the TV unplugged from the wall, take the back off of your TV and take a look at the line cord going into the circuit board, this will lead you to a fuse holder, look at the fuse and see if the filament inside has been blown (opened). If the fuse is blown relace it with one of the same amperage and voltage which should be written on the metal part of the fuse. Once the fuse is replaced, plug the power cord back into the wall and power it up. If it comes on and plays, that was your problem and you can turn the TV off unplug it and put the back cover back on, plug your TV back into the wall and enjoy. However if the fuse blows again, that could indicate a problem with a short somewhere in the powersupply path and that will require troubleshooting the set. Now I we have to troubleshhot this TV you will need a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a schematic of the TV (at a minimum). If you do have electronics experience to this level and do not have this type of equipment, You will have to take the TV to a repair shop. Thank you, and I hope that it is just a blown fuse.

Toshiba TV Keeps shutting itself Off.

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!
