    Thank you; I thought and hoped it would be do straight forward...


    I took the cover off and I see two fuses, neither of which are blown. Perhaps its a diode but I'm an amateur... how does one identify a blown diode (or fuse for that matter that I may have missed) without being to aggressive and taking things completely apart??


    Appreciate the help!

  • valuehunter Feb 17, 2008

    You were correct!


    I found the fuse. It was hiding underneath and just to the left of the power cord receptacle.




    It is a small glass tube fuse and I can read 5G on it but how would I find the correct replacement fuse?? does anyone have the specs on it??


    Thank you!

    My F38310 just did the same thing. The fan runs and the power light on top of the TV goes green, however, the picture and sound never start. Can you tell me what might be wrong? If it is this fuse, can you tell me specifically how to get to it?

    Thanks in advance.

Have you checked whether mains power reaches the power board? Check it first. If yes, the power board you purchased newly should be checked.

No problems for serval years. Right sound output died on both speaker and headphones, very slight buzz on increasing volume. Left sound output okay. Suggestions please. Jim Conway jmrc@aol.com


I presume you have proven the channel is dead by trying multiple sources, swapping a different speaker onto it and that the balance control is NOT all the way to one side; headphones don't work either and we're down to proving it's dead before you take it in to a tech, right?


There is the slighest chance that a common control may have developed a high-resistance or 'dead' spot and is causing your symptom. Turn the POWER OFF and operate every control throughout its range a number of times, especially rarely-used ones like Tape Monitors and the Mute control.


If it still doesn't work you might want to prove if its a low-level signal loss or a high level amp failure. One way would be to run an RCA cable pair from the Tape Out to any other device (even a TV with speakers) you might have that accepts an audio input. If IT can't detect receive the DEAD Channel you
