You will need to upgrade that fuse with a Samsung authorized upgrade. The part number is DH81-11975A and is available from
http://www.hermanelectronics.com/HermanStore/homepage.asp
If you use just the standard type it will go again in a few weeks.

Same thing happened to me. Got a ceramic fuse like what was in it and it went about a week . So I got the DH81-11975A fuses from herman electronics and the fuse went again in about a week. Found that the fuses get very hot.

Exact same thing happened to me last week on the exact same model TV. I took off the back panel and discovered that one (of two) little white fuses on the power supply was blown. A replacement is hard to find, I had to order it. Hopefully it's just a fuse, and not blown because something is broken.

    Where did you ordered the fuse from?

  • HellRaisin Apr 23, 2012

    Update: You can order "official" replacement fuses from searspartsdirect.com for $3.50 each (the part number is DH81-11975A). Or you can get a set of 5 of the exact same thing off amazon.com for $1.38, here's the link:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GFA...

    In my case the replacement fuse will blow too, maybe in a week, maybe after 6 months, but it will happen sooner or later. The reason the fuse blows is because of a design flaw, (something to do with capacitors on the power supply). It is a fair bit of work to disassemble the TV and replace the fuse, so after doing it a couple times I just cut a 5 inch hole in the back cover so I can reach in and replace the fuse whenever it blows. It's unsightly, but nobody sees it because it's in the back. It has been three years since this problem started and I've gone through about 10 fuses.

    Do I need to say that you should unplug the TV before you mess with the fuses? Do it.

    BTW: I tried official replacement fuses and they blow just as frequently as the cheap ones I got from Amazon.com (See link below)

You have bad 2200uf 16volt capacitors in your power supply, probably 4 of them. I repaired a unit with this exact problem a bout 4 weeks ago. If you have a friend or family member who knows how to solder, you can get the parts for under $10.

Red light keeps flashing wont turn on...is this going to be expensive to fix


I have the same problem, did you find a fix? I am going to replace the fuses on the power board to see if they work. I ordered some on Ebay and found the repair instructions on Youtube . I am hoping this works. I have seen this problem is common with all power loss, but I have a red flashing light still and power loss.

I have a Samsung FPT5084 Plasma TV and it keeps shutting off
