My TV just quit working one day. I had a plant hanging over it and when I watered it it leaked into the back of the TV (duh) I don't know what I was thinking, but anyway... I dried it up as fast as I could and nothing happened. But a few days later it just went off and hasn't come back on sense. When you push the power button it sounds like it comes on but theres no picture or sound. I was going to change the fuse but have no idea how to or even where its at.Can you help me? Model # DS32224

Just open the TV after disconnecting it from AC wall outlet. Us a hot air blower to dry it out. Wait till all water has been evaporated out, and then plug it and see, whether it works. If not, contact any service technician to make it right. If
you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you sufferfatal electrical shock!
Instead, contact the nearest service center.
First of all I must how much water leaked inside and was it actually water or something else?
Most of the time if the set was off and you left it off for a couple of days the water would simply evaporate and the set would continue to work.
I have seen other things spilled into sets, like plant water with fertilizer or etc. that cause corrosion and will cause the printed wires, the PC board traces, to actually corrode and the set will fail. If that is the case then wait until it's completely dry and take it to a shop. If it's just a few corroded traces it will be easy to fix... if not then it might be a major repair depending on if something was actually damaged or not.
Low voltage can create different trouble, sometimes a cpl at the same times. Call your insurance company and they might help you to build a direct request to the electrical distribution company (thats how it is here in canada) No simple tricks for that, experimented technician gave up in 33% on such situations. Not an easy trouble....
its not good remember water and power does not mix most likely shorted some parts if you do take this set to tv shop make sure you move the plant to a diffrent location okay when the tv is on it has all diffrent voltage okay when you add water to a printed circuit board its not good take to tv shop see what they say i prbally would not waste the the money on a repair when you can buy a tv w/ a warrany okay have a good day
This has happened to me quite frequently. I have replaced the fuse at least 8 times. You just take off the back of the t.v. and on the bottom you will see a small glass fuse. just pop it out and go to radio shack and get a pack of replacements. about 4 for 3 dollars.
From the way you describe the problem, it seems you have a high voltage
leak. To check this, make the room dark and look into the back of the
TV while turning it on. If you see something like lighting jumping
around you have this high voltage problem. The TV will eventually
destroy itself under this condition. I would suggest not using it until
you get it repaired. The repair cost will be much lower if the TV is
still working when you take it in. The high voltage leak will destroy
more parts and cause the TV to stop working. Then it will blow a fuse.
Water can be very damaging to TV circuits when not dried up completely as soon as possible. Water causes corrosive damage to the printed circuits as well as the small components. It needs to be dried quickly, as with a hair dryer. Your set probably has suffered component or pc damage, and will probably have to be repaired by a professional. The cost of your repairs could approach replacement cost of your TV.
