I think a fuse blew. TV wont turn on and theres no green stand by lite on, even though it's plugged in!

Hi ,

Here are some DIY steps that may help you fixing the problem.

I'm assuming that your outlet is live.1.Power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling. 2. Power switch - check for dry joints, open contact, replaced if necessary. 3.Check the internal fuse- sometimes the fuse fail because of the power surge, replacing with new one will cure the problem, If this is the case I've advice you to use surge protector/AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator). However if the fuse blew again this is an indication that you have a shorted parts on the power supply, you may visit the link for more info. If no reaction and still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.

4.If you see that the fuse is intact on the board, don't attempt to touch anything because there somefatal components stored electricity enough to hurt you with a simple mistake only.

The next steps should be done by an expert or qualified technician because isolating the problem on the power supply is quite technical.

Also check if your unit is under warranty before opening the back panel, it will void the warranty. Avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or a little charge only.

Hope it may help you.

Thanks for using fixya.

No power at all

im guessing you have opened up the case of the amplifer

look in the area where the ac plug plugs into the box.

you may have to remove some of the boards to get to it

the main internal fuse should be next to the place where you attach the ac plug

also check the main wire wires that go into the main board from the power supply check for voltage

No power is reaching my ps3 from any plug. Wen I flick the on switch nothing happens

Have you checked the fuse in the PS3 plug?

If you have and it still doesnt work, it sounds like the internal PSU may be dead and unfortunatly you'lll eaither have to contact sony for a repair or try and fix it yourself.

I've seen new PSU's on ebay for around £50 and it doesnt look too difficult to do, I think the hardest part is actually getting inside the PS3 case.

Cheers for now

No power to the system checked all plugs and cables had been working for 2 years

I cannot know any specific answer but presuming that you have power at the wall socket (don't laugh sometimes it is that easy) a piece of electronics will not work because voltage is not getting to the circuitry inside. The most logical place to look is at the fuse but too often these days that is buried inside the unit and may be soldered on a printed circuit board. It is presumed that users will not fix anything and its certainly cheaper to solder one in than provide a fuse post externally . Clearly in such cases you must open the unit and check. If there is no fuse or the fuse is good it will require an electronic tech to trace the problem further.

Sony VPL-DS100 will not turn on

I had same problem. The cause was a blown fuse (T5.0 Amp 250V). You have to open the case and then get below the print that is under the alloy cover. it is quite simple to fix. A fuse costs 60 cents.

Open case of Apple Powerbook G3

Several screws on bottom and the whole top case snaps off. It will take a little time on this model to gently pry. Also, I think the keyboard comes off first before removing the top cover by two finger pegs. It's been a long time since I worked on this model you you'll just have to get in and look around. Very common on this design that the power plug just needs re-soldered to the motherboard.

Sherwood AI5010 no sound from either channel

Its very unusual for both channels to blow......

I suspect that there is a blown power fuse inside the case......

There are fuses sometime located on the outside rear of the case and these can be easily checked to determine if they are blown..If you find one is blown please replace with the corrrect rated fuse,..... its current rating wil be on a small label on the case outside rear. like 1.0amp, or 1.5amp etc...

If you need to go inside the case please ensure the power plug is removed from the wall socket first.

You will find small glass fuses in the DC power supply feeds and probably one of these has blown, once again replace with the correct rated fuse.

Im not sure if your amplifier is a FET type or a large 32-40 pin IC type as if these are blown you will need a service person to do the replacement...

Please note there is a small relay that clicks 20seconds after turn on at the switch....if this click is not happening then there is problems with the timer circuit or the relay itself...

This relay controls the output to the speakers and as such stops all the sound output if its not the first thing is to check all fuses, if they are OK then check the Relay operations....
