Question about Sylvania 6626LCT 26 in. LCD Television

Fuse Blowing My wife's cat has chewed a few light slits on the power cord and it no longer works. I opened the tv and noticed that the fuse that is next to the power cord wires was blown. I bought a pack of fuses and replaced one thinking that maybe the fuse was just bad. When I pluged the unit back in the fuse blew again. Is this a problem with the cord or may there be something internal that went wrong? Also, if it is the cord is it possible to just open the cord, re-attach bad wires (if necessary) and tape the cord back up? My warranty won't cover this and people seem to want a lot to repair this problem.

    So, if I understand you correctly this is an inside problem with the set and not the cord? Yet, something that should be covered with a warranty (that I have)? I appreciate the news. Thanks

    set is about a year old. was working fine last night, but this morning would not turn on, either on the set or via the remote. We took the back off and saw that the fuse was blown by the power cord. Replaced it and that one blew as well. we're likely taking it to the repair shop now, but would appreciate any ideas re: what might be making the fuse keep blowing.

    My Sylvania is about 2 years old and was working one night and then the next morning would not turn on. I looked on the web site to find a solution and others had replaced the fuse, but to no avail so I thought I would give it a try as well. Same result. The second I plugged in the power cord there was a flash from the rear of the set where the fuse resides and I had not even hit the power switch on yet. Anyone know a goodrepair person in South Jersey for these things??

For the fuse to blow it must be receiving power,this places the fault beyond the fuse,without knowing what type of tv we are dealing with i can only assume a short circuit on the power supply board.

A blown fuse is usually caused by a shorted regulator or a bridge rectifier circuit. Either way it is a problem in the primary power supply. A bad cord won't blow the fuse in the set, it will blow a circuit breaker in the house. A servicer usually would normally cover the inside of the set with a "few light slits in the AC cord". Hope this helps

    Yes, you do understand. It is an internal problem.

Amp keeps blowing fuses

Blowing fuses, was caused by many thing.
Short of rectifier,resistor,elco,tube heater,tube pin, and also trafo itself (primary or secondary winding). It must check step by step.

The simple steps (see picture) are:
  1. Disconnect all connection from secondary of power trafo (PLV,PDCH,PACH and PHV).
    Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,trafo is good.
  2. Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    Connect PLV1-PLV2-PLV3 (this are Bias voltage,+/-15VDC and Backlight PCB voltage) to power trafo.Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,PLV circuit is good.If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,7815/7915,resistor) in this PLV circuit.
  3. If step 2 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV circuit stay connected,connect PDCH 1-2 and PACH 1-2 to power trafo. Power ON the amp.
    If fuse is not blowing,PDCH and PACH circuit is good and all tubes heater/filaments are lights after a few seconds.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube heater pins) in this PDCH/PACH circuit.
  4. If step 3 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV,PDCH,PACH circuit stay connected,connect PHV 1-2 to power trafo.
    Power ON the amp. CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE AREA is ON.
    If fuse is not blowing,PHV circuit is good.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube pins) in this PHV circuit.
  • Steps had to be done sequentially from 1 to 4, not upside down.
  • If tube/heater pin is short,it can't be repair. The tube must be replacing.
  • PDCH circuit is voltage for V1-2-3-4 heater/filaments.
  • PACH circuit is voltage for V5-6-7 heater/filaments.
  • Always replace fuse with same type.

Samsung cdx2512 won't turn on by power button or remote

I suggest you go to youtube and type in your tv name and model number. The picture you included makes it look like a pre-2000 tv. You may have some trouble getting help on a older tv. On you tube they'll offer you a whole bunch of choices and you might get lucky and find your model and a video on how to fix it. Truthfully most people say, unplug it, open up the back and look for capacitors with the tops "exploded: out. Wear a pair of silicon or latex gloves, because the capacitors can hold a charge for a few days. A lot of times it needs a good vacuuming out and cleaning of the air vents going into the back. Who knows you might get the back open and see that a fuze needs replacing.

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.

Tv does not come on-no lights at all

This set has a pair of common issues----one: the fuse (6.3 amp and special--do not replace with Radio Shack or generic fuse) blows for no reason---with back off follow power cord (unplugged please) direct to the fuse which snaps into a holder--if stand of wire inside is broken or black replace the fuse with (not generic cheap fuse) correct fuse.

A few of these sets had problems with the degaussing circuit but that is rare----9 out of 10 times replacing the blown or open fuse with the CORRECT one returns set to operation.

I stress that as saw one where a guy replaced the fuse 3 times in a row in a few days with a generic one that popped at turn on.

TV won't turn on

take the back off the tv and inspect the glass fuse off the ac power cord, it will probably be black and open, this is a common problem, it blows because the degaussing circuit works too slow, the original fuse is an 6.3 amp fuse, you need to replace it with a 6.3 amp slow blow or a 7 or 8 amp fuse to keep it from blowing, if you put an original 6.3 amp fast blow fuse in it, it will work for a while, but will blow again someday.

Power board fuse blowing

Remove the power board from the TV and look at the other side of the board. You should find the burn-out and then trace the printed board for a short.

Panasonic ct-32sl13g blowing fuse by power supply

You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.

There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side, one right next to where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more by all of the video connections **These are the most important to remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.

Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four pack costs between $3 and $5.

Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back there. I found a few when I did this.

Good luck!

Blowing Fuses

main rectifier could be shorted, main regulator could be shorted MOV surge supressor is probably shorted. MOV will be a little disc close to the power cord input (after fuse).

Push Power button, green light goes on for a few seconds then nothing....

I would suggest taking a look at the power module if that can be replaced. The Fuse blowing may have only been the beginning of the problem. Any recent issues with under or over voltage in your home?
