Power Supply Keeps Tripping Fuse

I have a 32MF231D/37 that no longer gets any power. First thing I tried was replacing the fuse, and it continues to trip as soon as power is applied. I then isolated the board (unplugged all the cables and removed it from it's case to ensure that it's not being shorted by something in the case) and the same thing happens. As soon as power is applied, it shorts.

Any ideas? Obviously I'm looking for a cheap fix, as the TV is only worht about 700 bucks.

Freeze the capacitors is a trick worth trying. These usually are the problem

the way you run this is too use freeze spray to freeze each capacitor one at a time . Turn the TV on and if it doesn't trip for a few second longer you know that is the capacitor to change. Freezing capacitors only helps identify the fault if it is a capacitor issue (usually is with power on TV's)

Power source does not work. Wont turn on or off


Blown fuse or bad capacitor on the power supply. the set and remove the back panel. Locate the power supply. There is usually a fuse in line with the hot supply wire. Check it for continuity with an ohmmeter. Look for bulging electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. Electrolytics are polarized (+-) and can fail if they go even slightly overvoltage. Replace bad capacitors with components with the same microfarad rating but a slightly higher voltage rating. I.E. replace a 16 volt cap with a 25 volt cap.

Need to find power supply for 32mf231d


Earl, First, let me ask you...are looking for the power supply or the signal board? The reason I ask, the product shown, is the signal board. In some cases a bad power supply can ruin the signal board.You will know this when examining the signal board (will be burned). But you ask for the power supply. This power supply is difficult to find, that is why you ask to locate one. You may have already checked with shop jimmy.com. So, lets ask for a rebuilt power supply. Call Union Electronics at 1 800 648 6657. Call Andrews electronics at 1 800 274 4666. These places will rebuild or exchange boards. Have your TV model number and if you can the power supply in hand with the part number. The part number is on the board,, with white tape (will start with 313#). Another thing to try, is to locate a TV Repair shop. They may have a salvage area with a working power supply. As to say the same TV with a shattered screen etc. Thanks for asking me Earl....good luck, Matt.

My washing machine kkeps tripping my fuse box


This is related to a fault in the main control panel, it is possible there is a short if the fuse keeps tripping off. You need to remove plug and pull out the panel to check for short in the power supply to the main control panel usually a SMPS unit. Use a multimeter to check for short, if so this must be replaced.
check for tips from the link below:

No power or light, plus power supply keeps blowing fuse


you have a short most likely on the power supply but could be on the mainboard, inverter board, av/input board. The T-con board is fused and should blow its fuse before blowing the fuse on the power supply. I'm going with a faulty power supply, most likely a shorted Mosfet.

Magnavox 32mf23id/37 wont tun on


Had the same issue, I replaced two 1200uf caps on the power supply board and now it works fine again. Remember to replace the caps with caps rated for at least 35wvdc.

An earlier post of the smaller model of this with the same problem said to remove the metal cover over the power supply.

I have the 26MF231D and it worked great afterward (even though you can't mount it)

Here is how you remove the cover.

Jgp963 shorting out


What do you mean you 'placed container on all five knobs'?

Apart from that it sounds like you have a faulty lead, or the contacts inside the unit have short circuited. This is the only thing that could be causing a continuous circuit and tripping the fuse.

Fuse keeps tripping


The first thing to do would be to get an electrician to your home to check that the problem is not with your supply. If you ask nicely then the same guy could probably check your fryer for short circuits - the most likely culprit if the problem is intermittent is the plug on the power cord, the cable and the connection inside the fryer where the cord goes in - check that all these are ok. The other possible cause could be a faulty element, however this is unlikely to be an intermittent fault, and it would usually get worse quickly to the point of not working at all. Hope this helps - please post again if not :)
