Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Thanks, I chatted with another expert and what you proposed is dead on. It was mentioned that I may have blown or "opened" a pico fuse. I have the service manual and have found the schematics and picture of the board but I dont know how to identify the pico fuses and am unsure how to test them with a meter. And as far as following the the trace to the next solder joint, do you mean the next spot of solder on the trace? This may not be the most advisable but could I scratch the trace and afix solder to that, my reason being I don't want to expand the scope of my problem to other components on the cb. so to sum up 1) identify pico fuse on schematic 2) testing fuse 3) creating jumper to pins Thanks for your help, Matt
There is no pico fuses in that model that can be affected by the convergence circuits. You can scratch the trace and attach solder to it. Thats usually not the best way to do it as its susseptable to becoming dislodged. pico fuses are usually identified with FL (fusable Link) in the part location, just test them with an ohms meter for continuity in circuit.
