Re: No power

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.

good luck---------------tomtaso

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.

Tv shut down replaced burnt fuse but burns again when plug into power supply. what should I do my mom is in her seventies and missing her programs...

i would replace the fuse again and try a different outlet to rule out an electrical problem with that particular outlet. if it blows the fuse in a different outlet it's probably time to retire that TV set it's hard to find anyone to work on them anymore because they've become obsolete due to the flat screens.

When i turned the tv on, i heard like a "click" noise, and the, there was no picture, only a horizontal light line

Sounds like one of the components and/or screen is going or gone,. the "event horizon" of screen deaths, not good. sounds like this one may need to go into the repair shop,....may only be a small component and not whole screen. best to get estimate and call repair shop with issue first...

THe tv is stuck on channel 11 and I can't get the menu to come back up to search for channels. It needs to be on channel 3 to get signal from satalite box. Is there some kind of reset button to go back to...

The sets have bad eproms. They cause all kinds of problems. also the ground connections around the tuner and microprocessor and eprom need to be resoldered using a silver solder alloy.

Is the is TV Digital or Analog?

if your grandmother has cable or satelite tv she already has a digital signal however if she justs gets her locals she will need a converter box. the goverment is giving free coupons for this or she can go to walmart and purchase a directv converter box for about $50 she will not have directv but the box will convert her signal.. the tv has nothing to do with the signal. she will not need a new tv.

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.
