Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have an Insignia 42" plasma HD tv. It turned off while watching it. when I tryed to turn it back on I could her click on and I got the green light but it went to red and i could hear it click off. I found a 4a fuse on the power supply(not the 8a main fuse) blown. I replaced it but it does the same thing, any ideas?

    Do you know for what the 4A fuse was? Was it on a separate assembly?

    I would guess the 8A is protection for the entire unit and the 4A for the high voltage supply for the plasma display.

    Replacing the fuse once is fine since they can fail from metal fatigue; expanding and contracting with power on/off cycling.

In some 45 years of electronics service, I've seen about 2 failed transformers but 10s of thousands of failed semiconductors.
The type of failure and the fact that the 2nd fuse didn't blow points to the failure of a semiconductor that shorted and failed causing the fuse to blow. Now the failed part isn't drawing any power at all and is open (infinite) and wouldn't be hard for a tech to find.
