Re: Power outage fried my TV

Usually,the AC fuse is located by following the AC cord into the tv and the culprit will be close to where the cord attaches.Note:if the replacement fuse blows,then additional parts need to be changed.

No Video or Sound after power outage

While it's certainly possible to fry the whole power supply or the DMD board, it's more likely that you've blown a capacitor. This same situation happened to my brother's TV after a power outage. I told him to unplug it for a half hour and that didn't help. He left it unplugged and when I finally got around to open it up the following week, I turned it on and worked. (I told him I fixed it).

Unfortunately the same thing happened after the next power outage so I opened it up and replaced two leaking capacitors by the power cord. It has yet to fail again after numerous power outages.

So first thing to try is leaving it unplugged for a few hours or even a day. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again. If it does, either you or someone else should open it up and check for leaking or blown capacitors.

There was a power outage and now i am am not getting no power

Without any power going to the TV, it's likely that the power supply has been fried. If you feel comfortable opening the set, you should check where the power plug goes into the power supply and locate the fuse. The fuse is a small glass tube with metal rings at either end. If you take the fuse out of the holder and hold it up to a light, you can see whether or not the filament (the little wire) is still connected. If it isn't, and if the area's black or brown, then the fuse is blown and needs to be replaced.

Power light comes on but no picture at all...

There are several more fuses in the TV, but they are not like the main power fuse. Most of of the time there black with and lead coming out of each end about the size of a resistor. I think there are 9 of them, you will need an ohm meter to check them and a soldering iron to replace them. Good luck Eric.

My tv did not come back on after a power cut could it be the fuse

Good Day;
After a power outage it is best to 'reboot' the TV. Unplug the TV for 4-5 minutes from a/c outlet, wait, plug back in. Did not work?
It could be the main fuse, it will be located near the a/c cord on the TV's board. CATION!! After removing back of unit make sure the TV is unplugged from the a/c outlet and the fuse will be a glass fuse, ensure that it the correct value eg; 5 amp 250v.
Good Luck and Careful, Big Irish.
