Question about HP PL4260N 42 in. Plasma HDTV
My HPLC4270N trips my circuit brakers often. It's plugged trough a Monster surge protector.
I tried in a different room. Same thing happened
1) Try with a different surge protector. The oine you're using could have a short-circuit
2) Try without a surge suppressor, at least for a day
3) Does the circuit breaker trip when something else starts running? Your microwave, fridge, dishwasher, etc.?
4) Check the user's manual of your TV, under SPECIFICATIONS. Check for "POWER REQUIREMENTS". If the power requirements listed is greater than 15 Amps or 1,700 Watts (assuming you live in the USA and your household is 110-120V), then the circuit breaker will almost always be triggered by the TV. Most circuit breakers inside a house are 15 Amps.
The only option you have is to replace the circuit breaker for one that has more Amps, but doing so on your own without having and electrican check if the wiring will hold the extra load is extremely unadvaisable. You may end up with an electric fire in your hands.
