SOURCE: NO POWER, Yes blown fuse.

Was this the 220 ohm in the power supply??? and if the 5 amp blew right away then it probably took out the bridge rectifyer with the power surge that comes alog with hurricane damage to the power lines as I used to live in florida and repaired lots of sets damaged from storms!! After you check the bridge rectifyers I would start looking to find any other shorts. First measure across the ac line with the fuse replaced but not plugedf in . If its shorted check what I mentioned before if its good after you replace the shorted parts you maybe in luck. need more assistance go to sams photo facts download a schematic and we will trouble shoot this together if you post it here so i can look at it. good luck

You can buy a replacement PSU from HERE.

But these try these troubleshooters first:

1. Try this - hold the menu button down for 10 seconds. TV should power up; you will have to turn off front panel buttons on menu.

2. You can also try plugging in the TV through the USB on its panel to a computer or USB charger, and it may work. However, this is only a temporary solution.

3. Powering down the set or putting it in standby may have allowed the power supply to cool. Weak capacitors often go out of spec when they cool, thus preventing a section of the power supply from firing up properly again. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use the hairdryer, but don't hold the dryer too close (say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Resetting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

4. A circuit board may crack about some of the larger components mounted on it. You can inspect the PCB's for fractures, and then repair them. It may also be poor soldering that has failed. I would be checking for these things first.

5. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board or just change the faulty capacitors. You will have to open the back panel and take a look. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a sample pic (not same model):
e209190.jpg
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you, or get a qualified technician. Warning: If you do not have a background in electronics repair, or are inexperienced, get a qualified technician to do it for you.

REMEMBER there are very dangerous voltages inside a TV that can KILL. Be sure to work SAFE when dealing with electricity. DISCONNECT THE POWER BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

What can be the problem if tv fuse keeps blowing again and again


you have a short circuit in your television causing the system to draw more current than it is designed for. the fuse blows to protect the remaining components, your home from potential fire, and your family from potential electrocution. Have a technician check it out and repair the TV or replace it.

Tv fuse keeps blowing


What is the brand name to your TV? If fuse should blow out, there should be a reason for that, Some shorted component/s at the power supply regulator board. Check it out first, replace the damaged component/s, before replacing an other fuse. Just note; do not insert a fuse which have other rating than specified. If you wish to get more details, http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up older posts there, either by its left side bar, or see it in Timeslide option.

Keep blowing the main fuse.


To which circuit section did you replaced the fuse? Main power retulator? Just understand, the fuses are used to protect the circuit and TV from any short circuit or over voltage. Without any one of these, no fuse will blow up. If it was due to over voltage, the set should work after a fuse replacement. But here, the fuse blow up again, means, there is some thing shorted component/s. Check which component is shorted, and replace it, before replacing an other fuse. One more thing to say is, never insert a fuse other than specified. The voltage and ampere specification to fuse, will be marked at the circuit board, very near to the fuse clamp. Insert a fuse of same rating only. Using other fuse, rated higher ampere rating, might make things worse.

Slim Samsung HDTV will not turn on


Hello
You haven't given the exact model number to your TV here. Anyway, check its mains fuse [can be located at its power regulator board] first. If it find opened, do not replace an other; without rectifying the fulat inside the power board. If protection fuse should blow up, surely there will be some reason for that, including short circuit or failure of components.
If you replace the fuse with an other one, the fuse that you will insert will also blow up, and may cuse more faults to other components. OK.

My 55313 mitsubishi power light comes on then turns back off.


I'm not the original poster, but I have the same problem. I've looked through a lot of solutions on this site, but this is the only one that matches the issue and model number exactly.

Here is some additional information:

I've checked for blown fuses. On PCB-MAIN board, fuse F9B01 was open. A capacitor right next to it was very slightly bulging. I replaced the fuse and the cap, and also replaced the convergence IC's, since those seem to be common failures, I was already in there, and the TV had an issue when it first powered up of faint dark "Squiggly" lines that faded as the set warmed up, usually becoming completely gone in two minutes or so...

Anyway, after replacing those items, the set still does the same thing. Powers up, then shuts off after a couple seconds. The test mode shows 2 flashes, pause, 2 flashes.

I have not noticed any other obviously bad components (No smoked items), and all the remaing fuses are good. The one that I replaced is still good. I'm not sure what took it out to begin with, but it's obviously something that's still bad. :-)

Any help would be appreciated!

The fl231 fuse blew 3 days after i replaced it so problem is obviously steming from somewhere else. I keep seeing solder joints that need to be resoldered, can you elaborate.


The reason the fuse keeps blowing is because of bad solder joints on the flyback transformer,resolder all flyback cnnections and you should be good to go.

The Red,Blue,Green do not line up and keeps blowing fuse


you need to replace 3 items FL231, DL231, CL230 then resolder the vertical IC and flyback conections. You can get the three components under the RCA parts category at this link.

I have a LG 32LX2R-ZE flat screen LCD TV, We've recently had a power cut and the TV doesn't seem to work, Cable is okay but there is no power getting to the TV. I havn't got the manual and i've heard that...


Hi,
I used to be a TV engineer many years ago, and I do not profess to know much about flat screen TV's.
I have just been asked to look at one of these which has suffered the same fate as yours.
It does have an internal fuse, but it is not a "normal" household fuse, it is a component fuse and you will need to be able to solder and de-solder to be able to fit one.
That said, the TV I have here, the fuse is OK, if I disconnect the PSU from the main board, the standby +5V recovers, suggesting the PSU is operational. Connect it back up and it drops, something is shorting out the +5v, which is why it will not switch on.
Without a diagram, this has become very frustrating, and Ithink I am going to have to give up,
Sorry it's not good news people!

Cheers
Shaun
