Toshiba TP61E80 blows fuse

I just got a toshiba TP61E80 for free a guy said it turned off one day and wouldnt come back on. i opened it up and noticed a fuse was blown. i replaced the fuse with the same one it asks for. and everytime it gets plugged back in it blows the fuse. i tried unplugging everything else from that board and putting a new fuse in and it still happens. nothing looks to be damaged on that board. has anyone had this problem? or is it something that is worth trying to mess with?

    it is the closest fuse to the power cord.

    im pretty mechanically inclined but not so great when it comes to electrical... would i just check the power cord basically? and where it comes into the board? and across the fuse?

    would that just mean check the power cord and where it comes in to the board and across the fuse? im pretty mechanically inclined but not so great when it comes to electrical... i have a direct email to if that would be easier to communicate. thanks for the help.

    i measured between the fuse clip for continuity(sp?) got no not the best when it comes to using a volt meter. but im pretty sure i did it right. i check alot of the resistors and they showed a reading when i checked both sides. when i checked the fuse clip, i also checked from one side of the fuse clip to one side of where the power cord connects, and there is continuity there as well, and the same thing when touch the other side of the fuse clip and the other power cord prong... is that normal? there is also no fuses in the board at this time...

    if thats too confusing i can try to get a picture of the board online. thanks for the help again. i really want to get this thing fixed.

    Correct...with no fuse in clip and set unplugged,measure across

    the fuse clip.....if it is shorted,remove soldered in Metal Oxide

    Varistor ..Example = D899 hooked between AC cord and fuse.

    Install new fuse ...try again.....MOV is an overvoltage protect device....................................................T.

    Please identify all parts by location ....F801 7amp, for example.

    D801,C811,812,813 and then on to the regulator Q801 should all

    be have a dead short somewhere close ..between the ac fuse and the regulator IC........T.

Suddenly blows fuse as soon as plugged in why?

Usually a fuse blowing immediately means there is a short in the amp somewhere.

I turned the computer on this mornin, and noticed ...

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed HP monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Toshiba 27A30 that blows Fuse

Jeff, If your not a technician please dont mess with the set as you can get seriuoly hurt by experimenting. And replacing a fuse that is black is only going to blow again and possibly cause more problems and damage the set more then it already is. Your problem is a shorted B+ rectifier or a capacitor or voltage regulator IC. If you don,t know what this is, or you don't know how to solder, as well as unsolder, Please seek out a pro to assit you with this repair. Good Luck
