    I replaced the fuses because 1 of them I tested was blown, so I replaced all 3 to be safe!

The main fuse, it should 5A/250V. The one you bought is 0.5A/250V and it will burn because it can not handle the amount of current that passes through it.
The other fuse that sparks even when the TV is unplug because is the charge of a capacitor that circulates when you place the fuse.
Just curious why you had to change the fuses?

Why does the power button blink on and off and the TV doesn't turn on?


There may be an open internal fuse or the power supply may have failed.

The first place to start is the outlet and check to be sure it has power. The next is to check / replace the main internal (to the tv) fuse - it's a 5A 250V GMA fuse (google image of GMA fuse). To find the fuse, unplug the set and remove the back cover of the TV - follow the power cord to where it enters - the fuse is located to the right and slightly ahead of where the power cord is attached to the board.

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

Check the fuse first, if you are luck, probably you only need to change the fuse otherwise you probably need a new TV.

Turn off home electrity power or unplug all the expensive units when it is lighting to protect them.

Yes, there are many fuses in this set some looks like the regular fuse, others are small pica-fuses. Look for 25-2600, 1801, 1300, 2000-1 these are some numbers you can look for to see if open.

Short in powersupply check secondary fuse and all other fuses too. Were there a color problem before this/ Because most of these set have convergence problems. The amps May need to be changed and resistors around them.
