Question about Sony KP-61V75 61" Rear Projection Television

No power, blown fuse in power supply

I'm aware that a blown fuse is the result of some other problem, i.e., the transformer, diodes in the rectifier curcuit ect. What I'm wondering is, if there could be a problem with maybe the horizontal output transistor, or even the convergence module. I don't have a schematic for this chassis and was hoping that someone could help me out with a copy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you Jaime867 for you help!! The fuse is located in the main power supply. I didn't wany to go poking around without a schematic. If possible you can email a copy of the service manual to Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

This TV has a few fuses and it not easy to troubleshoot it without the schematics, and is very unlikely that the convergence fuses will cause a complete no power on this TV.
What is the location of the blown fuse?
Where do I send you a copy of the service manual?

I have a NAD T-753 receiver that is about 13 years old. It shuts down immediately after I turn it on. Replaced a blown fuse and tried hard reset, neither helps. Help?

Check the rectifier diodes in the power supply for shorts and look at all the filter capacitors in the power supply. Look for puffy discolored and domed tops. All filter capacitors must have flat tops. Check the windings of the transformer for darkened or burnt spots and test for shorts in both the primary and secondary windings

A module or an amp is doing a short cicuit. It's time to check if all transistors are valid. Be careful, bipolar and FET transistors behave differently. It can help to compare one by one each transistor from the RIGHT and LEFT amps. Good luck.

V7 d22w12-n6 monitor won't power up. Could a fuse be blown in the monitor itself or would it more likely be a bad resistor.

The problem is most likely a blown transformer, rectifier chip, or diode in the power supply. Most monitors do not have fuses.

Samick sga 120 amp keeps blowing fuses. replaced all rectifier diodes and tranformer seems to be working fine. any suggestions?

Fuse blowing is due to excessive current drain and the the first clue is the blown fuse itself. If the fuse blows with a flash a bang and splatters copper across the inside of the glass you have a hard blow caused by a dead short on the power supply, check for power switch flashing over internaly. Short circuit main filter capacitors. Shorted turns in power transformer primary winding. If fuse just separates check for short on output transistors C to E. Try isolating fault by disconnecting LT pos/neg supplies to output stage. Also check for partial shorts on speakers and speaker wires using an analog ohm meter on low ohms setting.

Broken amp

Why did you replace the fuse? If it was blown then you need to take the amp in for servicing. Iffthe fuse is glass and it was silvery on the inside, that is a hard short and is likely a power supply problem. Probably a rectifier diode or filter cap. Pray that it isn't the power transformer. Diodes are cheap... few pennies... caps a few bucks at most. Power transformer... you DO NOT want to know.

Internal fuse on cambridge a1 mk3 has blown and when replaced,blew instantly??

When the fuse blows suspect an overload in either the power supply or Main Amp section.
Check for burnt/damage parts first!
Power Supply faults that will blow the fuse are: Transformer, Rectifier, Voltage Regulator, Large Electrolytic Capictors, Diodes & any other semiconductor connected with it.
Main Power Amp faults are: any semiconductor device on the heatsink.

Dead Set after power surge

Check the power supply transformer primary driver transistor and the associated components (some diodes and capacitors, resistors, an optocoupler maybe) and the rectifier diodes (or a bridge) and capacitors at the transformer secondary, what you are looking for is a short circuit, however, the short may as well be in another section of the circuit board (a shorted component may sometimes have signs of damage caused by heat, but this is not a rule).

Hope you can find out what it is...

Blown fuse/ power supply vr550

There is a small glass fuse there as well. These units have aswitch mode power supply and the transistor that is attached to the heatsink sometimes gets shorted. This is the most likely problem. If you feel comfortable working on these and can solder, let me know and I'll provide more detailed information.

Have a nearly 30-year old Akai stereo receiver AA-R30. Power light just stopped turning on. Opened up case and found main fuse between AC power cord and power transformer blown. When I replace the fuse,...

Look for shorted output transistors or possibly shorted rectifier diodes. An immediate fuse blowing up usually means that the power supply is the problem. Keep us posted.

Won't work on ac

1. Make sure the AC power source is ok.
2. Make sure the AC power cord is good with no damage.
3. Look to see if there is a reset button on the rear of the set. If not, then look for a blown AC fuse inside the set.

Since the set works fine on +12VDC, the majority of the TV set is ok. You have a problem in the AC power supply. It could be a blown fuse, bad rectifier / regulator, bad step-down transformer.

The TV typically runs from +12VDC. The AC supply steps-down the 120VAC and rectifies it into +12VDC to power the TV. At some point in the TV, there is junction point where the +12VDC from the sets internal AC supply meets the external +12VDC power source. Usually they are electrically isolated from each other with a switch or with diodes.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
