Replaced inverter board on my hp dv5116 and runs great on battery but when I plug it back in the sgreen goes black after a few seconds

That sounds like a bad socket where the power supply plugs in. These sockets are very cheap made of plastic on most laptops, regardless of brand. It sounds like the pc doesn't get power when you plug it in. It that plug ever got bumped, it would crack on the inside and the socket would need to be replaced. I would verify that somehow before going any further. The battery signal goes through that socket when using battery, when you plug it in, it disconnects battery and gets the power from the adapter. These sockets become very brittle with age and exposure to heat.

175 watt 350 peak inverter 12v dc to 110 ac need a fuse but don't know what size to use. old fuse is missing.

15/16 amp would be recommended.
You could to try a 20 amp, but you will risk overheating and the possible failure of the vehicle circuit fuse.

My tv wont turnon after being off n unplugged for 6 months what should I do. Sony kdl32l5000

First lets try the basics...
1 check the AC cord for flaws
2 try plugging the TV in another wall outlet (always use a surge-protector) then try powering the TV on again
3 plug tv into surge protector, plug into wall then find the house fuse box going too that outlet and turn it off & on once. Then try powering the TV on again.
4 it could also be the ac fuse inside the TV that blew from the TV's last usage.
If its been in the cold or in excessive thermal conditions for 6 months you could have moisture build up on the boards or warping...
hope this helps, contact me at the link below for further help...

you dont need to buy anything from radio shack, the inverter that you have will be just fine. i have used smaller and im sure cheaper inverters with no problem. i keep my company laptop constantly plugged in and charging all day everyday running service calls.

Fuse missing

I would start with a 1.5 AMP fuse (175 watts / 12 VDC = 1.6 amp)
Make sure the fuse is rated for at least 120 VAC. Hope this helps!..Gary

Power inverter pc 500 once u put power to it the red light comes on and beeps but no a/c power

Hi there
Not a great solution but makes sense.
the ac adaptor for your alienware probably says input 240V ac 1.5Amps whilst the inverter can output 175W= 240V ac at 0.73Amps.
I am surprised it actually worked, i had to buy a 300W inverter to run my laptop. would suggest you do the same.
inverter is probably toast now anyway.

175 W inverter is not enough power for your computer and most of the cheap inverters do not put out a true sine wave. Buy one rated at least at 400w. Then it will output continuously at 300w. That should be sufficient for your computer. Your 175 w inverter is overtaxed then the voltage drops increasing amperage and burning things out.

Can't get power to my RoadPro 1500 DC to AC Power Inverter

I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.

Those starting with the simplest.

1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)

2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
Solution (Replace the fuses)

3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.

If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.

Hope that helps.
