Blown main ac fuse

a FEW ways this happens.

If fuse blows instantly when set plugged into power either a generic fuse (lots of these fuses are special and a generic will pop for no reason) or a dead short on the primary side of the power supply.

If fuse blows instantly when turned on a short either in secondary side of power supply or something it feeds.

First to try is get the exact fuse used (buy a pair) and see what happens.

beyond that if secondary side (when set is turned on) have an expert look at the set.

After about 8 great years, my sub died. i tried a different plug but no luck. the light is out and i have no sound. is there any chance that this is a fuse issue, or something else that may be fixable?

Sometimes replacing the fuse alone can fix the problem.
But if you replaced the fuse and blows when you power up the unit then its a clear indication that you have shorted parts on the power supply or on the main output I.C.

It is needed to send for repair because like what you have said it's been 8 years of service so it might also have a dry joints on the main board.

It is quite fixable just look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.

Pls rate my help...

Thanks for using fixya...

Black screen no video no audio suddenly now

This set is a 50" plasma. first check the AC power fuse on the filter board then: if it is bad: check the power supply by marking and, removing all the cables; (so you can put them back in the correct spot) except the filter board to power supply cable; that connects to the Power supply board. Then: replace the blown AC fuse and, re-power: If the power supply blows the fuse: again, the power supply is bad and, must be replaced or, repaired. If the fuse does not blow: turn off the set then: on again, reconnecting and, disconnecting each board cable in turn, untill the fuse blows again this cable leads to the bad board; replace or, repair the board that blows the AC fuse every time the bad board is connected, irregardless of which other cable to the power supply may be connected also; or, not.

Generally, the fuse only blows when the rectifiers fail. In other Pyramid supplies, they use a square, 4 terminal bridge rectifier. They probably use the same thing in your supply.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Look for shorted output transistors or possibly shorted rectifier diodes. An immediate fuse blowing up usually means that the power supply is the problem. Keep us posted.
