    I have the same problem I found a blown fuse, don't know if replacing fuse will fix the problem, since we did not have a electrical storm or surge. I now understand these sets came with internal component problems. Has anyone heard about this? The set was brought less than 2 years ago, and not alot of useage since.

    we also found the right fuse and that took care of the problem- irritating but easy to fix-

I found a electronic store who had the fuse (250V 5amp)I needed for my Samsung TXR3079, I replaced it and vola we're back in tv land! I also had a fuse I had laying around, a 250V 4a, and it blew, you need the correct fuse. I paid $5.95 for 5 250V 5A fuses. Other than a blown fuse I would've seek a pro tech to repair the TV. Great picture.

The fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.

Ours is 3 years old, no longer under warrenty and we just had the same problem. I bought a package of four fuses for $2.99 at Radio Shack. As the man mentioned earlier, follow the power cord to the fuse...very easy to find. Easy fix and saved a $100 service call. TV is working great.

I just had a fuse blow in my TXR3079WH after about 2.5 years of use. After unplugging the unit, I took off the plastic cover and followed the power cord into the TV until I found where it attached to the circuit board. The fuse should be located around there. The fuse itself is a small glass cylinder with metal caps on each end, and it fits into clips that connect with the metal ends. It's 5mm by 20mm cylinder, 5 amp, 250 volt, slow blow glass fuse.

Radio shack has them, their part number is 270-1067

Was watching tv ( LG 50"PC1D) as normal and all of sudden the tv just died, no power. checked the 10 amp fuse in plug and this had blown for what ever reason. There are 4 other plugs on this extention...


Hi,
Make sure that you've replaced it with same current(ampere) and voltage ratings to avoid further damage in the future. Fuse, sometimes failed due to voltage surge, aging or the unit gone to maximum current usage. Low quality fuse is also to consider for this kind of symptoms.

Blew a fuse what kind dose it take is it a slow blow fuse or fast blow one,i took out the old fuse and it reads le.3a/250v is it a 3a or .3a


It is a 3A/250V fuse, also known as a 6A/125V fuse.

Power amps generally have slow blow fuses.

All of a sudden no power.TV will not turn on using the power button on the console or the remote.


Unplug TV from power. Remove the back of the TV enclosure by removing all screws. Slide the side pieces off. Follow the power cord to where it connects to the circuit board. Immediately to the left is a 5 amp fuse in a snap in holder. Remove and replace with the same type of fuse (250V 5 amp fuse). Plug power cord in and wait 5 seconds. Try power button on either TV or remote. Reassemble TV enclosure.

Can't find 2A 125v fuse replacement for on-off will 250v be OK?


There is no difference between a 125v and 250v fuse. The most important thing is the 2Amp. This fuse is probably the line fuse and could be the only trouble and may have blow with a line surge. Make sure the 2A you use is a Fast Blow Type. If it does blow again you most likely have a internal power supply failure.

No power---unable to turn on tv


There is no reset button on these new sets,your set has complete power problem since you have no lights no clicks,this might have happen because of lightning or power surge,either one creates a lot of damage,if you are familiar with tv service you can check the main fuse,he should be close to where the power cord comes in,if you find the fuse blown it needs to be replaced with an exact replacement for AMPS rating and VOLTS rating as well as size,if the fuse is blown black we might have more problems ahead in the circuit and it will blow up again as sonn as you plug the tv back in,if it blows again it will need a more involved repair,the problem could be in the primary side of the power supply,if you are not too familiar you should seek the help of a servicer a least for an estimate but if you suspect power surge or lighting damage dont invest any more on this set and get a new one.

All TV's in house failing, a few at a time


Hey PNorris,

If multiple electronic devices are failing in your home all at once, I would probably first have to ask if your home recently experienced an electrical storm or major power surge of any kind.

Normally the effects of such large-scale surges are immediately noticeable - TV's and other major electronic devices may fail to turn on, fuses may be blown or circuit breakers tripped, and in some cases electrical wiring may be melted.

If nothing like this has happened recently, low-level power surges may still be a potential cause of this problem. When the motor from any large appliance (such as an air conditioner or refrigerator) turns on or off, it often diverts power to and from other electronic devices using the same circuits. This fluctuation in electrical current may result in low-level power surges to every connected device. While not immediately noticeable, these low-level surges can often cause the eventual failure of (and gradually degrading quality in) many audio/video components.

Typically, the easiest way to avoid situations like this is to make sure that outlets are not overloaded and surge protectors are used with every major electrical device in your home. For older homes however, replacing the house's wiring may be necessary. Homes that were originally built at the turn of the 20th century may not always have wiring capable of supporting the electrical needs of many modern appliances.

Ultimately, this means that in addition to contacting your local TV repair facility, you may want to also speak with an electrician. This is probably the best way to determine whether or not power surges have caused these failures, and may give you a better idea how to proceed.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

T.v won't turn on at all


The 6.3 Amp 125V fuse always blows on this TV after a while. replace with a 6.3Amp 250V fuse and it should do the trick unless something else is wrong. a 6.3 amp 125V is almost impossible to find so chances are if you find a 6.3 it will work. Tried a 6 Amp 125v at first and it blows after the first time you turn it on and off and then back on again. 250V seems to work well. Hope this works for anyone else with this TV. Beats having to move it to the trash because it is HEAVY.
