My dead 42" plasma - power problem

Following some suggestions from you guys, I got brave and pulled the screws off of the back of the TV. I followed the AC wire to the input on the board. Right next to it was a fuse. I borrowed my friends Fluke multimeter and checked. I got no response. I checked another fuse to make sure and I got a beep, so I know the fuse is blown. It is a T8AH250V P - does anyone know where to find one?

By the way - YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

    I only have a Fluke CAT III Clamp Meter. When set to ohms I can check connectivity. I don't have settings for both. The screen on the fluke reads 1 when I turn it on, when I check the bad fuse, it simply stays at 1. When I put it on a good fuse in the TV, it reads .03

    I just did the same thing this weekend. My Plasma's been dead for a month. So I asked my brother in law, an electrical engineer, to help me. We did the same thing and tried 4 different stores to locate the fuse. No one seems to be selling them. If you locate one please let me know.

I went to Radio Shack and bought a 4 pack of 6.3amp 250v glass fuses (5x20)...stuck one in and it works like a charm.

Anyone know of any problem using a 6.3amp fuse instead of an 8amp one? I am thinking it just would blow out sooner...and I have 3 more I can go through until I find an 8amp fuse...am I crazy?

If when measuring the fuses, you should hear a beep if the fuse is good when the multimeter is selected to continuity. If the multimeter is selected to ohms you will see zeros on the display if the fuse is good and OL if the fuse is blown.
I would suggest to measure the fuses first and possible the voltages after determining the fuses are good.

Fry's has the replacement fuse, identical to the Littlefuse T8AH250VP, manufactured by NTE Electronics. Part # 74-5SC8A-B (ceramic, slow-blow 8A 250V). 5 per package for $4.99. I'm replacing the burnt fuse on the power supply board on my Philips 42" plasma, right next to where AC cord attaches to the board. I hope it works!

42PF7320A/37 went dead, no LEDs on, no normal clicking when you connect the power cord . Though reluctant to do so, I opened the case with torx drivers, verified 120 VAC was coming out of the AC line filter with multimeter. Pulled out the fuse off the main board adjacent to the ac input connector. continuity check on that failed, voilla. The fuse was marked T8AH250VP. Made by company called 'Littelfuse' but couldn't confirm if its 215 or 216 series or something else. The 'T' means its time delay fuse (slo-blo). The H means High break current, in other words, its ceramic. So Fry's had the 8A 250V slo blo ceramic fuse that was close to same size. Never could find out what the 'P' referred to, not even littlefuse's sites's fuse ratings description included that tidbit. Philips referred me to http://www.encompassparts.com/, which I considered calling but wanted my tv up quickly, and that it is. Bought an AV surge protector that I should have had in the first place. Good luck God Bless.

SOURCE: my dead 42" plasma - power problem

I have same issue with Samsung HP-S4253 Plasma. The fuse is a Littlefuse (manufacturer they do not sell), I have search and called over 20 places and the latest is Fuses Unlimited but it is discontinued and they do not stock but they can order. I will not be able to contact them until the holidays are over. There most likley is a minimum order. If there are other fuses you need write down part #'s so you can fill the minimum if required.

If there is anyone out there that can help with finding these hard to find fuses it would be appreciated.
There are most likey other Plasmas or TVs that use the same fuse just have to figure out witch ones they are.

Fuses on Power Supply Board: The 8 amp is the one I require.
T8AH250V P

Break Down of Fuse Description:
T = Time Lag
8A = 8 Amp
H = High Breaking Capacity (Ceramic) 1500A @ 250V AC

Dead, no power


It sounds like ze power supply blew when it was being turned off. This seems to be typical of plasmas. Bad power supplys wont let the tv come on and will result in no lights coming on. Since there R no lights coming on, I would suspect the power supply first, followed by the power control board,. and circuit board. It may cost anywhere from $250 to $500 to fix.

Hi guys.  This is totally fixable and pretty easy if you have tech skills at all.  I performed this fix even before I found the following thread that will explain it, and it worked flawlessly!  Read it entirely and follow carefully.  this works on many different models of plasma's.

Howzit Brother.

I had the same problem, but managed to repair it myself! There is no need to purchase a new
Power Supply! You can service the faulty PCB yourself, or give it to a Tehnician to service for you.
If you want to try service to yourself, here is how,

On the PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you will need to do the following<

Replace the following Capacitor's, CS704(Most important one), CS705, CS706, CS707, CS708, CS713, CS715.
Replace the TOP210PFI IC marked ICS02
Replace the PC123 OPTO marked ICS03
Replace the TL431 Shunt Regulator marked ICS04

This solution should work! email me on engineering@elektroniktechnisch.co.za if you have any other requests!
