Question about Panasonic CT-32SL13 32" TV
125v fuse blows each time I turn tv on. It tries to start then blows and fuse turns brown inside. My question is, I used a 3amp 125v fuse when I believe it calls for 2.7amp 125v fuse, could the amps of the fuse used affect whether or not the t.v is blowing it. Appreciate any insight, thanks.
You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.
There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side, one right next to where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more by all of the video connections **These are the most important to remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.
Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four pack costs between $3 and $5.
Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back there. I found a few when I did this.

I have a Panasonic CT-32SL13 32 inch tv. Last week I turned it on and saw a small flash right by the power cord. I was thinking about getting a new tv and decided to see if it was something easy to fix. I found the easy fix right here on fixya.com. I took the back of my tv off and I saw the small fuse right by the power cord had blown. I went to Radio Shack, paid $3.20 for four new fuses, came home, replaced the fuse and my tv is fixed. Yay!!!
