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?

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.

Toshiba Model 51H84. Power breaker tripped during a storm. Breaker reset, and TV will not power on. Is there a fuse? Is there a reset button of some sort? How should I proceed? Thanks.


Your TV has a fuse on power circuit board ( that is a standard part).You need to resemble your tv to get the fuse ( make sure to disconnect all power and antenna before doing this service). Usually any tvs use a clear glass cover on fuse ( you can see a small conductor inside the glass). Replace the fuse if the small conductor gets broken. If after the fuse replacement, you got no joy on tv, the receiver part could be get problem also ( due to storm attack) and need to repair / replacement.

I hope the storm only attack your TV fuse.

Good luck

My TX is about 14 year old. The picture alwasy was excellent until we had an exlectrical storm that knocked out the cable box to the TV. With a new cable box the TV works. The picture has excellent color,...

Try your cable box on a different tv set and also try connecting the cable directly into the t.v, if that makes no difference then your tv set may have a power supply problem that was caused by an a.c line surge during that storm.

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.
