This is an
indication that you have a short on the power supply section.It can't be fixed
by replacing the fuse alone. Short usually near the AC line where parts like
the following are present.
This is the common parts that might be shorted and made the fuse
blew. #2-5 is quite technical and need an expert to do the job so I've advice
you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem. You may visit
the link http://www.fixya.com/support/r8053361-fuse_keeps_blowing for more info.
Check also if your unit is under warranty, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free or a little charge only.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!

You may have a blown fuse. First unplug the TV and take the back off of it and then look for a tube shaped glass with two metal ends. Take it out and visually inspect it, if it looks burnt on the inside then you have a blown fuse if it does not look burnt, take a multimeter set to resistance and measure the resistance between the two metal ends (put the leads of the meter on the metal ends, black on one and red on the other) you should read 0 ohms...any other reading is bad. Now if the fuse is bad buy replacement fuses from your local electronics parts store or from Radio Shack. Replace the fuse and see if this solves your problem. Plug the set back in and if the set powers up and remains up unplug the set again put the back on again and you are finished.
Please get back to us if you have any further query or else accept the solution.
