Sanyo tv blows fuse when you turn it on

I have a 27" Sanyo tv 7yrs old that when you turn it on, the fuse turns green/blue and pops.  I have replaced it with a 4a/125v fuse and same thing happens again.  Any thoughts or ideas?
Thanks in advance for your time and trouble!!

Sanyo model # DS32830H, Serial # V3460278431491, Replaced blown fuse, Blew new fuse when turning TV on.

It's faulty to the extent that it's causing repeated fuse blows, so take it back to the store where you bought it, or find a competent service technician

11yr old "tube" tv has a completely green picture for about 10 minutes, then back to normal. Back to green after an hour or so. Can it be fixed?

you have to get the 'tubes' replaced with new ones, can be done at service.
the tubes of colors green and blue are getting old, so they cant withhold that much energy while being this old

Jvc AV-27FA44 will not turn on. Only a flashing green power led. Thanks Eric

most likely the fuse popped and needs to be replaced with the same ampage and correct voltage when power surges happen the fuse will go first if you can take the back panel off and the fuse is useually right by the power cord BE CAREFULL not to really touch anything take a flat head screwdriver pop out the old fuse if it looks burnt inside then thats the only problem you have,replace it and you will be enjoying tv once again. Best of luck!!!

On/off - fuse blows out

Use a higher amp fuse this should solve your problem if its not a electrical fault in the set.

Sanyo ds24205-turns on then shuts off

I had this trouble with a Sanyo tv about 10 years ago (still using it). The repair person said it was to do with the sound and replaced some part. Has been ok since. Cost me about $100 back then, when the tv was only about 2 years old.

Sanyo HT27547 tv - lightening came in on coax line

Ther is probably a fuse and a diode that got hit by the lighting. If you want to try to fix it yourself unplug it check the fuse and change it if it is bad. Then turn it on again. If it blows that fuse then a diode is also out.

Sanyo HT32744 Picture mostly green and blue

On mine I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.
