Thanks for this post. It inspired me to replace my fuse in my TV and it is working great now... I took pics of the process in case anybody wants to see what they are in for. http://joedotcom.com/2009/09/01/panasonic-fuse/ Although I did use a 6.3a fuse (just like I removed). I read on another forum that you can replace it with a 7a fuse and get better results. I have had this TV for years and this is the first blown fuse. If it becomes a reoccuring theme, i may up it to the 7a.

2001 ford escape interior instrument cluster and rear fuse keeps blowing. Have changed it three times in a week. Works for a bit then blows again.


There is an electrical fault that causes the fuse to blow. Maybe a wire has chafed against the metal body and vibrations causes it to short out the fuse. This requires checking the wiring from the instrument cluster to the fuse box for worn insulation etc.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV 7600CGW that keeps blowing the 10A fuse prior to the switch mechanism. This has happened 6 times in the last 12 months. Every time it is the 1st load after after a heavy load...


HI,
I have found the possible cause to your fuse problem, I would suggest replacing your lid switch to the unit, this can cause you fuse to blow. Item #3 below is the switch Part# is 22003804, I and hopeful this will correct the problem for you. Is part should con with the Item #7 in the picture also, replace them both, made even be a different color. I think gray is the color right now.
I hope this helps kidlmo_5.gif

Won't turn on


Once you take the back off there is a glass gma fuse withing a few inches of where the power cord plugs into the board at. This should be a 6.3 or 6.5 gma fuse. Very common to blow in your model because the degausing coil is a little to big for it. There are other reasons for it to blow but 99% of the time you change change it and the set will work again. Let me know if you need more help or info!

32'' Panasonic TV, 4 yrs old, keeps blowing the fuse


Hi Mendi.
I had a similar problem, in that I could not find the proper fuse for my set. I bought a bit higher amp fuse from Radio Shack and it ended up blowing a couple months later. I've since pulled the TV down and replaced it with an LCD set, so I've solved my problem.

But, to address yours, I don't think the amp difference would not be the problem. Likely, there is a power issue on your set causing it to draw more amps and become out of specification. Using a higher amp fuse would buy you more 'capacity', but if its blowing those too (repeatedly), its likely a real problem in the set. I'm not a TV technician, so I can't tell you why. I'd suggest taking the thing in for service (cheaper than the house call) or if that is too expensive, looking at putting your money into a set that won't give you those problems. Or, just keep replacing the fuse until it doesn't fix the problem.

Sorry I cant help much more.

Keeps blowing fuse


It has a short circuit somewhere...
Not sure if this is a CRT, LCD or Plasma TV but the two common causes of shorts for CRT's are the Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT) and/or the Flyback Transformer (Could be both). As a general rule if the flyback has visible cracks in the case they should be replaced. It is also a good idea to replace the HOT if you're replacing the flyback as it could be weakened and may not last much longer itself.
Other areas to check for all types would be any Diodes in the Power Supply Circuit. If a diode is open it can cause the fuse to blow. Note that a diode itself will not short, but an open diode can cause a fuse to blow.

Main fuse blown on CT-32G11 32" Panasonic TV, Replacement fuses continue to blow.


If the main fuse keeps blowing, check the horizontal output transistor for a shorted condition and diodes in that section as well.

Tv will not turn on


This set has a common problem with th main fuse opening for no other apparent reason... One of the few exceptions to my corner-stone statement that a fuse is never the cause only a symptom..
Don't replace it though with the same type grade, use a 6.3a slo-blow gma type - available at Radio Shack... Try that and if everything works you're back in business.. If not we nee to find a cause...

Yes, it is most likely the fuse. I have seen many of the fuses in those Panasonics "pop" for no apparent reason. If you feel comfortable, you can replace that fuse yourself. Carefully remove the back, follow the AC power cord and where the AC cord attaches to the PC board will be a small glass fuse. It is most likely a GMA 6.3A fuse. Replace that fuse and the set should work. If the original fuse is good or if the new fuse blows out too, have the set serviced by a qualified tech.
