The fuse should be near where the line cord is attached to the power supply inside the TV. Be careful as there is a possibility of some DC voltage present from filter capacitors still holding a charge, long after the set is unplugged. If a fuse is blown and blackened, a new fuse will probably do the same when the set is plugged back in. Make sure you use the exact same rated fuse. IF the new fuse blows right away, do not repeat the process, it will only cause more damage. Good Luck.

Can't turn on/off using either switch on front or remote. was plugged into outlet on cable set-top box. perhaps something was fried by sudden power outage.

In that case if ther is no power you better check first the power in the outlet they have.Then check the continuity of AC cord of the TV.If they are good,check the fuse,located inside at the power supply section near the AC supply voltage input.Replace same value of fuse if busted.Then try to turn on again..Try this procedure,hope will it help you..Thanks..

37" hitachi plasma tv doesnt turn on

If you have a light on ( standby light ), then I would say power supply fault, tv could be shut down because of faulty capacitors in power supply. if you dont have any lights at all , check fuse in plug,
( there will almost certainly be a fuse in the tv) but, that is for a tv guy to fix.

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off

a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.

Hooked a antenna to my RCA tv because we had know cable an as soon as we did it now tv doesnt come on it is model number 20V500T

Are you sure it does not come on, or no video (black screen)? Plugging in the cable should not affect the TV turning on. The only possible way I can think of that hooking up a cable would shut down the power is if you have a ground fault. The shield of the cable should be earth ground. If your TV had a power leakage, grounding the chasis by attaching the cable might blow a fuse. This seems highly unlikely, however.

Right out of the box. doesnt work

Don't feel bad - these are cheap TV's and there are lots of problems with them. Just be glad it failed so soon that you can take it right back and get something more name brand this time.
Remember - always google the model number you are looking to buy (with either "repair" or "complaint" in the search) and you'll be less likely to buy an TV industry land mine.

Tv wont turn on

The surge most likely shorted the horizontal output transistor, and with that being shorted, it causes the power supply to "sing" from the increased load it is seeing. Unfortunately, it would probably cost near $100 to repair unless you were able to do it yourself.
