20 inch Symphonic TV/DVD Combo fuse keeps blowing immediately.
The fuse located inside the tv blew and I have replace it 3 times and it continues to blow immediately. Are there some things that I could try that might fix this problem? Do you have any recommendations besides taking it to the shop for analysis? The tv is a few years old and we have never had any problems before. It was working an hour earlier in the day. Thanks...

Either you got lucky and just the few blew inside. Or worst case is the power inverter blew and will have to be replaced. You can test the inverter with a voltmeter. You can look at the glass bus fuse itself to see if it is bad or not.
Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)
When a fuse keeps blowing, that is an indication that some component has failed and the circuit is drawing too much current. Most likely it is a problem in the power supply section or high voltage / flyback section.
Sorry to say, you will need to take it to be serviced.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
