Question about Mitsubishi WS-55807 TV
I was recently moving some circuits in my basement and ran across a
borrowed neutral wire that was from another circuit which I was unaware
of at the time. Well, when I turned the circuit on for my A/V wall,
there was no place for the electricity to go and I obviously damaged a
The most expensive being my TV. It is 5 years old and out of the extended warranty so I took the panel off the back and noticed the blown fuse right by the incoming cord. I replaced that but now, when I plug the TV in, the fuse immediately pops.
I'm sure there are a multitude of possible problems but I'm not sure if it's worth fixing. My friend said it's probably a transformer and to take the board out and he'd replace it (I think there are 3 boards on the bottom of the TV). I don't really think it would be that easy. Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not I should repair it? There was absolutely nothing wrong with it until the wiring mishap. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. If I need to explain what happened in greater detail, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
Well there was a place for the electricity to go... 'cause it obviously fried a few things :) I certainly hope you get that part fixed. I don't know what you mean by a 'borrowed' neutral, but it sounds like you're putting 220/240v through your receptacles rather than the normal 110/120v.... as for the transformer in the tv, yes, that is quite possible. I'm assuming you've been plugging the tv into a known good circuit, and you've tested it to make sure it's putting out 120v.
