Hi I read you answer to another post where you had suggested replacing the fuse in a Coolpix 5400 in order to get it working again. I have a similar problem with the camera not turning on and I am keen to try replacing the fuse. I have opened the camera but am unable to locate the fuse - could you please help me understand where the fuse is ? Also, if you have any idea on where I can find a replacement fuse in the US, that would be great Thanks in advance

This sounds like the battery is no longer keeping a charge or working properly. I suggest you purchase another battery and see if this fixes your problem. These cameras also worked on a disposable battery called the 2CR5 which should be available at your local walgreens, cvs, duane reade. If this does not solve the problem then you will have to take or ship to local service center. I use photo tech in New York; www.phototech.com
If you look up the datasheets for the 392 series, you'd find more differences than power and voltage ratings... Using a similar IC (even if it is the same series) may make it difficult, if not impossible, to converge. It's recommended to change the 2 ICs as a matched pair. Since one already is failing or failed, the other probably isn't too far away.
The resistors mentioned are to bias each output stage for proper deflection and must be within tolerance. They're precision blue flameproofs, so if anything really heated up from a bad IC you'd easily catch any browning / burning. Red is IC7001, blue IC7002, and green is split between the two ICs.
Tha advantage getting a factory supplied or authorized distributor part is you know the LOT NUMBER has been approved by the manufacturer. Generics or unusually cheap originals are often rejects from the manufacturer as being out of tolerance.
The originals are only $29 each directly from Panasonic. Why go through all the effort tearing the thing apart twice to save $30?
Sorry to tell you this but your CCD is gone. In a fwe days time pics will be black in color. CP 5400 uses a batch of defective Sony CCD's. Nikon's service center in Kolkata, India replaced the CCD in my CP 5400 free of cost. This was because Nikon has issued a service advisory. Try your luck with the Nikon service center closest to your home!
