Question about Flat Panel Televisions

Tv keeps blowing fuses when its plugged in...

So I went out and got a 40'' insignia lcd 1080p tv from future shop tonight, so we get it home and unpack it and take out our old tv, which was an older RCA 27'' (not flat screen) as soon as we plug the new TV into the powerbar it blows the fuse in our apartment...I was thinking that the old tv would draw more power than the new one, is that the case that the new TV is using that much more power that its blowing the fuses or could it be something wrong internally?

There should not be any reason for the new TV to blow a 15 amps fuse in the house.
The TV has an internal short circuit even if it is new, I would suggest to return it and get another one.
Good Luck.

Fix lcd tv


You need to dertermine if the power board failing charred the connectors, or if a differeb=nt component failed which charred the connectors and took out the power board. This will require component level testing. i suggest taking it in to the repair shop.
However, i would price shop a comparable replacement TV before fixing a 4 year old Insignia. it may be more cost effective to just replace it.

Ihave a insignia ns-lcd47hd-09 tv. when i press the power button the light turns blue but no picture comes on only black screen.


I think your insignia is set for SHOP mode instead of HOME mode. I changed mine to HOME and it's working fine now. Press your menu button and then scroll down to setup. You're looking for Plug and PLay which should be the very first choice. If it's greyed out as mine was you'll have to change your imput from HDMI to TV in order to get to the P&P. Once you're in the Plug and Play your first choice is language. The second should be SHOP or HOME. Make sure to select HOME. You can skip scanning for channels. This fixed my problem with the blue light. The store uses SHOP so if someone plays around and changes something, all they have to do is shut off the TV and turn it back on. Please let me know if this works.

Sony Bravia LCD TV is tripping the fuse in the house


These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?
