    No fuse. Smoked the 5 volt power rail of the Power Supply. (USB ports use 5 Volts) The Processor also derives it's power from that 5 Volt power rail. Time to replace the Power Supply. Also of course, do not use that Front Panel USB port again, and/or do not connect the same device to any of the USB ports. Acer's are known for low quality Power Supply's.

It could very well be a power supply issue. Try narrowing down the source of the problem:
Does this power problem no matter what USB device you plug into your computer? If it is just one device, then it is something wrong with that particular device. I'd recommend replacing or getting it repaired.
If it happens with all devices it could be a problem with the power supply or USB port on your computer. Try a different USB port on your computer or have it looked at by a local technician.

Where is the reset or fuse on the lc391eme tv


The fuse is located on switched mode power supply board. If the fuse has blown the set will be dead no standby led light on front of set also when you plug the set into a power outlet you should hear the relays clicking. if you don't hear the clicking then the fuse has blown or another part of the power supply has failed and will require service.

The power does not come on when the "On" button is pushed. What's the problem?


Hi:
Check near the power input connector for a small fuse compartment, the line protect fuse may be blown and in need of replaceing. If there is none then the power supply is not getting power the fuse may be internal to the unit. Or the pwr supply has failed entirely, but check the simple solutions first, usually no power is due to the printer being plugged in an switched outlet or blown fuse or power supply failure.

There could be two possible failures:
1. The backlights are defective (not a common failure for a 14 months old LCD) or the backlights driver/inverter is defective.
2. Power supply failure(very common failure on LCDs) will cause the symptoms you described.
