You have a short that is causing your fuse to blow. If you dont have any electronic expertise in trouble shooting I dont sug you proceed . And allow a pro to look at it.

sorry for not being to help.

No power on zenith z36x31d

The fuse may have failed. However, since you mention smelling something burning, you'll need to check if other parts (for example: a resistor or diode) also was damaged. That burning smell suggests that you had a short in the circuit and high voltage got past the fuse. If you insist on fixing the TV, you will need to identify any short and fix that before attempting to use it again.

I hope this helps.

(I've dealt with several resistor fires over the years. Sometimes the resistor or Zener diode is actually the fuse for the circuit. That simplifies the solution.)

I have a thomson 29dh78k and a blown fuse . i changed the fuse and blows again . hehp!

There is a direct short circuit in the main power regulator circuit. Never put any more fuse, till the fault has been rectified. It will cause more fault to develop. Contact any experienced service technician.

Thomson 50DSZ644. Just replaced the Lamp great picture but burned smell.. after few house it smelled verry bad..and i turned off. now when i turn on the tv the picture in middle is dark and still thi

should have unplugged it when you noticed the smell.

UNPLUG and remove and look at lamp you installed--is something in the housing where lamp goes melted? I hope you did not touch the face of the bulb with your hand or fingers.

What ever is wrong find it before trying to use set again.

I have a LCD TV THOMSON 32lb040s5, the problem is that the TV start and turn off again and again when I start it

you probably have a fault on the stand by power board.
this normally requires soldering and maybe some componet changes. This is not a job for the unskilled. best carried out by a service engineer(shock hazard)
there is a service kit for this available from 012453925

The GE (actually RCA) 25GT516 uses the CTC185 series chassis. The dashes you show look like the old display of a clock that has not been set. I have never heard of this chassis producing those dashes continually on the screen, so the first thing I would do is eliminate any cable box, satellite receiver, DVD or VCR. If you have cable, run it directly to the set and see is the dashes are there. If you are sure that the dashes are being generated within the TV and you have properly set the clock and turned off the OSD, then it soulds like an EPROM problem and the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the CTC185 chassis.
