Question about Televison & Video
I would check 2 things. If the TV trips another breaker in the house of the same rating, you probably have a short in your TV and will need to have it serviced.(You didn't drop it did you? :-) ) The short may also occur by too much stress on the power cord where it enters the TV, common to need to cram the cord into small spaces when wall mounting. If the TV only trips that particular breaker, I would try replacing the breaker. Replacing the breaker costs very little and will only take you a few minutes. You can buy a replacement breaker at most hardware stores. Just make sure to disconnect the main supply first! Also, make sure the breaker is rated correctly, using a higher amperage breaker will increase your chances of starting a fire.
