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!!

Power went out in the house and breaker popped off to where the tv was plugged in. When turned back on the tv won't turn on,The little light indicator turns on for about 10 seconds and then turns off?

Was the TV on a surge protector? If not it likely the main circuit board is shorted out. Contact the local power provider and try submitting a claim for damage.

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

Will not power up, something popped yesterday, and it lost power and will not come on

The fuse might have blown. Could be various reasons. Unplug the TV. Place the TV down on it screen (on a SOFT FLAT, UN OBTRUSIVE surface). Remove the back panel screws and the panel. There will be a fuse, it is likely blown. Replace it with a fuse of the EXACT SAME amperage (it will be stamped on the fuse [example 5A is a 5 amp fuse]). Replace the back panel and carefully tighten all the screws. Replace your TV on it's stand. Plug it in, and turn it on with the remote. If it works, great. If the fuse blows again, you have a more serious problem. Do not attempt to fix it yourself, it could create a fire hazard. Seek a repair shop.

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 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.

Open the back cover and check any fuse blow in Y Sustain board or Z Sustain board. If you do find the fuse gone, replace the board. Good luck!
