Question about Philips 42PF9630A 42 in. Plasma Television
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
By the way - YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.

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