Re: TV Blows internal fuse

I've seen posts where it says a fast blow fuse will not work, because in Degausing at start up, it will blow fuse. You need to use a slow blow type fuse, as slow as possible .

Re: TV Blows internal fuse

Where IS the power supply? I assume it isnt a unit like in a computer, since I don't see anything like that. Is it a board?

You will have to find the source of a major short in your power supply.Since it's a 5A i assume i imagine that's where the short is.

1.Check the power outlet where your TV is plugged.
Also your power panelboard for tripped off breaker.
2. If ever, your TV won't power on, then, it needs to
check your TV circuits. You can start at the power
supply IC for busted part., then to the other section,

Lg flat screen lightning hit and now it wont work

This may just be an internal fuse on the power supply has blown, if you have a multi-meter you can remove the rear cover & check for yourself to see if it is open circuit you may be lucky & this is the only problem. However, very often lightning strikes can cause a lot of damage to the circuitry, so if the fuse is at fault & then blows again, I would suggest contacting your supplier to get an repair engineer to take a look for you & access any further problems.

Panasonic ct-32sl13g blowing fuse by power supply

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.

Good luck!

Television won't come on

Could be as simple as a blown fuse, but if you know so little about TV's, go see a serviceman!

Fuse blown

the fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.

Nothing works

The fact the set blows up the correct fuse is because it has a short ahead in the circuit,it could be one of the diodes(4) that is shorted,if one of these guys is bad all of them should be replaced with the exact replacement,ahead of them it should be a regulator and he is bad (shorted) it could have taken the diodes and the main fuse.The cause might have been a power surge.If you are familiar with tv service you can check the regulator and the diodes before you put in a new fuse,if you are not too familiar be safe and take the set for an estimate.If you suspect power surge or lighting damage it might not be worth repairing.Let Us know if you need more information.

TV will not power on after powering off.

There is no reset button on these new sets,your set has complete power problem since you have no lights no clicks,this might have happen because of lightning or power surge,either one creates a lot of damage,if you are familiar with tv service you can check the main fuse,he should be close to where the power cord comes in,if you find the fuse blown it needs to be replaced with an exact replacement for AMPS rating and VOLTS rating as well as size,if the fuse is blown black we might have more problems ahead in the circuit and it will blow up again as sonn as you plug the tv back in,if it blows again it will need a more involved repair,the problem could be in the primary side of the power supply,if you are not too familiar you should seek the help of a servicer a least for an estimate but if you suspect power surge or lighting damage dont invest any more on this set and get a new one.
