Sylvania lcd color tv

When I plug the tv the fuse blows.
I have replaced this fuse with the same type slow burn fuse and It blows as soon as I plug it into the wall

I blew the fuse (125v 4A) so I replaced it and it blew again. I tried a different outlet to make sure it wasn't the plug strip and it blew again. Anyone have the same problem or know how to narrow down what component is shorted out?

    Watching tv and lost all picture and sound. Found the fuse to be blown. Replaced fuse and plugged back in. 2nd fuse blew instantly. Bought a surge protector and replaced the fuse again. Again it immediately blew upon plugging in. Tv shop wants $100. just to open the back. Any thoughts?

If you have replaced the fuse already then you know how to open the back of the set . The problem is more than likely one of the diodes in the rectifer circuit . They will be the four large black components The bad one will have to be desoldered and a new one soldered in its place . It will take a small amount of technicial ability but can be done easily at home.

I would definitely check your home wiring. An AC Electrical Wire Tester runs about $5.00. You just plug it in and three lights will light or not light depending on your wiring.

Microwave keeps blowing fuse as soon as plug into wall receptacle.


Just to clarify: With the door closed, the fuse will blow as soon as you plug the unit in? Have you checked all three microswitches? One acts as a crowbar.

Samsung fp-t5084 fuse fix is the replacement fuse slow burn or fast burn?


I'm certain it uses a T12amp slow blow type. I have the exact same model, you can replace the fuse. The TV will for a while, but that fuse will blow again. You will need to replace the power supply board for a more permanent fix.

Power board fuse blowing


Remove the power board from the TV and look at the other side of the board. You should find the burn-out and then trace the printed board for a short.

Sylvania lcd color tv


try a diffenrt outlet if it still bunrs of a different fuse! could be the fuse not big enough for the different appliance on the circuit !


i would suggest take it to a tech it could be a problem in the tv that could cost only a few $ to fix !!!!
against trying to much to plug it in and out you could burn transistors or other expensive part of the tv!

Fuse


If the fuse blew again then there is more than likely a problem with one or more of the boards components. First start by unscrewing the power supply and looking on the underside, you may see some burn marks. If you do then it is likely that the component above the burn marks has blown and needs to be replaced. If you do not see any burn marks then the best place to start is with the diodes on the board. If its still not working, e.g. the fuse blew again then it may be that the problem lies elsewhere on the power supply... Good luck.
