How do I check a fuse

what type of fuse home, car,?
a fuse is a wire or band of metal sized to handle a set amount of current of a circuit, if the current exceeds its limits it will fail, melt, burn and open the circuit like a switch.

Round home screw in, front glass window should have a narrow metal band running across if broke or burned the fuse is bad.
Auto glass fuse should have a small wire running inside glass tube from top to bottom, if gone fuse is bad.
Auto plug in on the top of the fuse is a window, in that window should be a narrow wire running from side to side, if wire is broken or gone fuse is bad.

Sony kdf-50e2010 its four years old and i have never replaced the lamp so i know i have used up the 8000 hours of the lamp's life and more. the lamp indicator stays red and the power indicator blinks...

Take the lamp out and inspect it. Look down the bulb at the root of the filament stem and look for any bubbling of the glass there. If so it is bad. It can be bad like this even if you don't see any broken glass inside the blub. The best place I found to get a lamp with housing is
There could be other problems but the lamp is first place to start. Then consider the ballast or the thermal switch which is on the top of the lamp housing. The ballast could be a pill to change...a lot of disassembly and re-assembly. But it supplies the voltage to light the lamp. To test the thermal switch you can take one wire loose from it and jump with an alligator jumper clip from wire to wire temporarily. The thermal switch has two wires connecting.

Our mistsubishi hc1100 projector has green light saying it si on but nothing on the screen, lamp change 2mths ago limited use.

If you have used it since putting in the new lamp, then it could be the lamp again. Take out the lamp and inspect the bulb through the square opening. Look at the wires that connect to the top of the glass bulb if broken or the bulb is damaged, try to return it under warranty. The other issue could be the lamp ballast or power supply. Hopefully the lamp.

Broken Glass on Cooktop

Ouch. The glass top does have to be replaced but I just ran the partial model number on your range and if you're at the comp. I hope you are sitting down. Replacing it not bad. Purchasing tho is rediculous. Retail suggested price just for the top is 600.00. Rediculous pricing but GE is like that sometimes. Sorry but repairing the glass is not possible and getting it from a glass shop isn't either. Sorry for the not so good news. Rick

Infocus X2 projector shows picture in black and white only...

that little glass square broke off of the colorwheel, and it needs to be replaced. that yellow/gray line is from the light tunnel collapsing. both parts can be purchased and replaced by you. if you don't feel comfortable doing it, you can send it in to an authorized service center. try av solutions. they're pretty good. you can purchase infocus parts from them, too.

It could be you need a new lamp again (your might have gotten a defective one) or "temp" is the temperature sensor that is located on top of you lamp, could be bad also. If the lamp gets too hot, the temperature sensor will shut down you lamp so your TV will not catch on fire. If your temperature sensor has gone bad, your lamp will not turn on at all.
