Everytime I plug the tv in it pops the fuse on the power input. The television is a model # F35100ST. The previous owner tried to tell me that it was the high voltage trasistor, but I think it might be something else. Please need advice as to how to fix this problem myself if possible

Does the fuse pop even when you have the TV off? If so, it's most likely it's a short in the power cord. Examine the cord closely, and see if there are any breaks in it. If you have a voltmeter, see if you're getting much resistance if you put one tip on each prong of the plug (while it's unplugged, of course). You should have infinite resistance, while the TV's off.
It could be something within the TV's power supply, but I think a damaged cord is more likely (and it's MUCH easier to fix, just cut the cord and splice a new one on). If you're sure it's not the cord, check it again... and if you're still sure, let me know and we can delve into the difficult things that are less likely, but possible, to be the cause.
Best thing to start here is open up the TV and look for any blown components on the power board (which is the one that has the power cable attached to); check the transformer for continuity first, that is the first thing to blow. Then go on with capacitors, resisters, and any burnt wires.
All of these parts are easy to find and replace, they can be found in local electronics shops.
Please post back how it went and any further information or questions you may have, so we can help you better.
Did you change the TV input setting on your TV to the correct HDMI input? Most Televisions will take a few seconds to scan the input before displaying any image. Most newer televisions have multiple HDMI inputs, and you might need to select each one, wait several seconds to see if there's a signal, and then move on to the next input, until you find which HDMI input has the Roku start screen signal.
mine has done the exact same thing, and apparently ( have yet to try) there's a second fuse in the tv and that's the problem, now I need to locate the fuse!!! lol mines an older Philips, let me know if yours is the same problem
If there was a popping noise of any kind when the tv screen went black there's a high possibility that one of the fuses in the tv popped and there is no power to the tv. It could also just be the outlet itself and try plugging the tv to different working outlets.
Check to fuse box to see if the fuse is working properly. Next, see if the TV "pops" the power supply when pluged into a different outlet in a different power supply area. If the TV works without poping the fuse, the fuse with the original outlet needs replacing. If both outlets "pop", either the electrical system needs checking. Or if this is a new problem that started when you first tried the TV, the TV could be wanting more power than the electrical system will allow. Check the power requiremnets in the TV manual.
Check power supply transisters possible shorted
and check transister next to ht runs picture may be shorted also check diodes 4off runs ac to dc
changover , this possible causes the fuse to blow , allways be carefull when pluging any
electrical item in
please let me know how you go thanks jeff..........
Assuming you are absolutely sure the TV is getting power,
If you have an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between the two prongs
on its plug. If no conductivity (over 1 meg Ohm) the fuse inside
is popped. Take the cover off, look in the area near the
power cord, it is the usual 5AG type (glass cylinder) fuse.
If you replace it and it pops again then measure all the diodes in the
rectifier circuit (near the fuse).
Many times power transients will just blow these input power
devices. However, many times it will go much deeper and get
the TV's processor brain. If the TV is anywhere near 10 years
old, I wouldn't go any deeper than the input power circuit.
