Fuse blows when it gets plugged in

The tv was not powering on at all and I tracked it down to a blown fuse. I replaced the fuse and when I plugged it in to the wall I saw the fuse blow again. Everything I have looked up tells me that it is probably a bad resistor. How can I find out what all the different resistors are suposed to test at. Or is there a likely resistor that it would be?

No it doesn't sound like a resistor, it sounds like you have a short in power supply, you can look for bad Diodes in bridge rectifier,or solder bridge, or transistor short, start from beginning to end. It is definately a short and most of the time resistors open and this will not cause a blow just a dead set.

Jvc tv av36230 was working fine one day tried to turn it on the next and nothing. its like its un pluged but it is. is there a fuse or something inside?

Yes, TV sets have a fuse inside (in a holder on the circuit board near the power cord connections) and it may be bad, but that's unlikely to be the trouble. Fuses seldom just go bad on their own, and if you find it's blown there's usually some other part that causes it. A dead TV is not always easy to fix, and you generally need the services of an experienced technician with the tools and information to track down the problem.

Have you tried unplugging the TV from the wall, letting it sit for a minute, then plugging it back in? This will reset the computer inside (if it's getting power), and sometimes that's all it takes. If not, you can take the back off the TV (MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED!) and check the fuse, but that's about all. As I said, if it's blown it will probably go again if you replace it, and if the fuse is good but the set won't come on it will need professional help.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Recieving no power even though plugged into good outlet. is there a fuse?

Ofcourse there is a fuse in the AC track of every TV. But if fuse must blow, there must be some reson for that. Fuse is included in the path of AC as a protecion to the circuit for over voltage of over current. Just look inside, and confirm the fuse is blown or not. If blown, find out the reason for that and tectify it before placing an other fuse in place. Otherwise, the fuse you replaces will also blow out. OK.

Tv wont turn on

Hello tvlover, The outage actually is not the problem but the spike that happened when your power came back on did the damage. That aside, you may just have a blown fuse. If you are able to and feel comfortable work with electronics, with the TV unplugged from the wall, take the back off of your TV and take a look at the line cord going into the circuit board, this will lead you to a fuse holder, look at the fuse and see if the filament inside has been blown (opened). If the fuse is blown relace it with one of the same amperage and voltage which should be written on the metal part of the fuse. Once the fuse is replaced, plug the power cord back into the wall and power it up. If it comes on and plays, that was your problem and you can turn the TV off unplug it and put the back cover back on, plug your TV back into the wall and enjoy. However if the fuse blows again, that could indicate a problem with a short somewhere in the powersupply path and that will require troubleshooting the set. Now I we have to troubleshhot this TV you will need a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a schematic of the TV (at a minimum). If you do have electronics experience to this level and do not have this type of equipment, You will have to take the TV to a repair shop. Thank you, and I hope that it is just a blown fuse.

Toshiba TV Keeps shutting itself Off.

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!
