Tv Fuse Blown

I have a Zenith Big screen and During a Storm a tree limb knock down the Power line causing the Neutral to become disconnected, I had an extra ground installed. No after having the power restored My tv wouldn't power up, so I removed the back and found the 6 amp fuse blown, I found a 5 amp fuse at the local radio shack. I installed it and it blew as soon as I plugged it in. would 1 amp make that much difference? or would there be more wrong with the TV?

Re: Tv Fuse Blown

Depends on how hard the fuse blew. If softly, perhaps 1 amp diff is too much.

If hard - blackened inside - then you need to call in a tech.

My JVC AV-48WP55 only blinks the green led when plugged in. This happened after a power surge, during a thunder storm.

Have you tried unplugging the tv and letting it sit for a while then plugging it back in?

also.. sometimes i have seen appliances that will flash the power light if an internal fuse has blown to indicate a problem. open it up if you feel you want to and check for a fuse around where the power cord comes in teh tv.

My zenith big screen tv won't come on model pvr5263dt


Thanks for using FixYa. This might have happened due to over-voltage. Please check the power supply unit for swollen capacitors and burnt wires/components on the power supply board of your TV. You should try and turn off the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it. This issue might have occurred due to blown pico fuses located on the D-Board or due to blown fuse on the power supply board.

Please do rate the solution & revert for further assistance.

Blown fuse

Most likely there was a power event (surge, brownout, ect) that caused the power supply to fail in the TV causing the fuse to blow. you will need to have someone come and look at the unit and give you an estimate. If you keep putting fuses in and blowing them you could actually be causing more damage.

RCA 52" Big Screen TV model;P52920BL Chassis;PTK195KB PICTURE BOWED AFTER FUSE BLOWN.

You have bad convergence IC's.. If your not experienced in troubleshooting electronics or soldering, you should have a trained tech take a gander at the set. Its not worth risking life and limb to save a few bucks, Good Luck
