Emerson CR202EM9 is just dead. Tried to reset like discribed in the troubleshooting with no help. Is there a fuse or something that could effect power?


Hello
Surely there is a fuse inside it. Its rating will differ according to your househlod voltage. If it is 220VAC, the fuse for a 20" TV will be of about 3.5Amps, and if it is 110VAC, the fuse will be about 6Amps. Before replaceing the fuse, you just check for any short circuit inside the power supply reguator section of your TV. Without any reason fuse won't get burned. Just keep this in mind and open your Tv, and check the entire regulator section with the help of a multimeter, set in Ohms range, for any short is there or not. If there shows any short, get it repaired first and put the new fuse, otherwise the fuse you are going to insert will also get burned. Check it with patience. If you wants furthermore assistance, get me through Fixya. OK.

Unknowing fuse


In most cases on the board under the fuse the rating will be listed IE: 4A, 5A etc.

TV will not work


Hello dnjmartz,

Your friend is correct there is a fuse in your televisions's power supply. Now I do not however suggest that you open the TV set and try to find it, because it's not like the old days where the fuse was located in or around about the same area in most TVs . The fuse in this case might be towards the middle of the set or on the power supply board in any location so finding the fuse will be the biggest chore. However here are some simple instructions of how you might be able to find the fuse.

1. unplug the TV
2 take the back off of the tv
3. using a flashlight look for a component that looks like two round metallic cylinders separated by a glass cylinder.
4. remove the fuse from the fuse holder
5. visually inspect the fuse for internal burning (black soot)
6. if possible test the fuse with an ohmmeter should read 0 ohms
7. Replace the fuse with one of the same voltage and current rating (check for replacement fuses at radio shack or some place like that)
8. After the fuse is replaced try to turn on the TV before putting the back on "BE VERY CAREFUL DANGEROUS VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT"
9. If the TV comes on you are read to turn the TV off and put the back of the TV back on.
10 If the TV does not come back on you will have to get the set looked at by a qualified TV technician since if the TV does not come on it may be the result of a power supply malfunction.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I can't find fuse


TV fuses are always right near where the power cord plugs into the circuit board. Never seen a TV without one.

The tv keeps blowing fuses


Hi your problem is that a component(s) inside your TV has probably short circuited to Earth, this then causes a massive current to flow and this blows the fuse. Due to the types of Component failure from this, this TV should go to a reputable repair shop. Get a firm "Quote" and an explanation of what needs to be done.

Fuse blown


the fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.

TV Fuse


Most of the time the manuafactirers put the fuse around where the line cord comes into the back of the TV set. are you sure the fuse is bad? Are you thinking the fuse is bad because the TV set will not come on?

TV Fuse


I would think any standard fuse with the same rating would work. If your fuse is blown you also have something shorted in your set. You could try one and if it too blows then you'd need to have it checked out. Stargazer
