There are tiny screws in the back of the tv if you make sure you locate all of them and remove them carefully the back lifts off without causing damage. Make sure you keep note of which ***** came from which hole as the screws very in length!
We got our fuses from an electrical wholesaler Maplin.
Hope this is of help?

Where is the fuse located for a Sharp flat screen TV?

Unless there's one in the mains plug then the only fuses will be inside the TV.

Beware with fuses. They normally blow because something else is wrong in a circuit. Just replacing a fuse without fixing the thing that made the fuse blow in the first place isn't a good idea. You could do more damage.

If you have the TV back off, then have a look at the capacitors on the main power supply board. .

Google "Capacitor bulge" and then search Youtube for your make and model to see if anyone has done an instructional video. You'll need to be comfortable dismantling the unit and be able to use a soldering iron. If this isn't you then take it to a repair shop.

Cause of blown fuse

Blown fuses are due to sudden power fluctuations and/or short circuits inside the TV. It is not advisable to replace the fuse, without checking for any internal shorts as it might damage more parts inside when making attempts. A qualified service technician will do a bulb check across the fuse to ensure there are no short circuits (The best way to do it).

Fuse keeps blowing on my Philips 32pw8608/12

Please, never try to replace a fuse, without checking for any short circuit inside. You will only increase the damage inside. It is advisable to call in a qualified service technician as opening back cover by unqualified personnel is hazardous.

How do I trouble shoot a tv struck by lightening ?

That is a tricky question, lightning can cause minor to severe damage. If the TV is completely dead, the power supply board will be the first order of things to check, if fuse is open chances are there will be damaged parts and open foil. If fuse blows, board replacement would be the next step, however the risk is will it work, lightning may take 1to 3 boards for example and the unfortuneate thing is you must sub boards until it works.

It could be a fuse but most likely the power supply got damaged. You should get the power supply checked for any defective components on it that would cause cause the TV not to turn on. Most likely damage is the capicators on the power supply in the event of a power surge.

I was watching TV and it just cut off. There is no power light on and the outlets are working and the cord is firmly in.

good day sir/maam, chances are yout tv just blew a fuse, when a fuse blew up, there are several reasons.
  • It protects your tv from further damage.
  • a part of your tv got bad, causing it to blew.
You have a choice of calling your service center/dealer or do it your own.

If you decide to do it yourself, these are the steps you may need to do.
  1. Open the TV's back cover, to access the circuit. locate the blowned fuse.
  2. you may need to pull out the entire board, to test it.
  3. test the switching regulator IC/transistor for shorts, (you may need a multitester).
  4. check for open low value resistors, less than 100 ohms.
  5. You really need to find the cause of the blew up fuse. part by part checking is necessary,
  6. replace the bad parts and test again.
  7. if everthing else fails, you really need to call your service.
note: if you simply replace the fuse without tracing the blew up shorted bad part, chances are the fuse may blew again.

TV will not power up

Check for a reset button in the back. If a reset button is not present. Unplug the unit and take the back off. Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard. If the fuse is blown, replace it with a fuse with the EXACT same rating. Hopefully, the set will come back to life. If not and it blows again, it will need servicing as there may have been damage done to the power supply. You may be able to make a claim with your insurance company or the power company to get it fixed if the power surge was caused by the power company.

Hello gladwin6,

You may have at least a blown fuse. However you may also have other damage to your power supply. This often happens due to the voltage spike caused by the power coming back on suddenly. You can check to see if the fuse is blown, however once you change the fuse and if this does not take care of the problem, I would suggest that if you do not have a background in electronics, that you have a qualified technician take a look at your TV set.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
