Hello dnjmartz,

Your friend is correct there is a fuse in your televisions's power supply. Now I do not however suggest that you open the TV set and try to find it, because it's not like the old days where the fuse was located in or around about the same area in most TVs . The fuse in this case might be towards the middle of the set or on the power supply board in any location so finding the fuse will be the biggest chore. However here are some simple instructions of how you might be able to find the fuse.

1. unplug the TV
2 take the back off of the tv
3. using a flashlight look for a component that looks like two round metallic cylinders separated by a glass cylinder.
4. remove the fuse from the fuse holder
5. visually inspect the fuse for internal burning (black soot)
6. if possible test the fuse with an ohmmeter should read 0 ohms
7. Replace the fuse with one of the same voltage and current rating (check for replacement fuses at radio shack or some place like that)
8. After the fuse is replaced try to turn on the TV before putting the back on "BE VERY CAREFUL DANGEROUS VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT"
9. If the TV comes on you are read to turn the TV off and put the back of the TV back on.
10 If the TV does not come back on you will have to get the set looked at by a qualified TV technician since if the TV does not come on it may be the result of a power supply malfunction.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Tv won't turn on like it's unplugged but it's not


I have seen the same problem with my tv's and the like. Depending on the age of the unit, I could sometimes find a blown fuse inside (safety feature). Many electronics especially tv's are extremely fussy about power surges. Even times when I knew there was no power surge, I would find a blown fuse inside the unit, keeping power from ever reaching it's destination. Like you said. tv behaving like its off because no power getting through

Bad storm, lightening strike outside then TV went off and will not come back on.


I would start with your power supply. If you took a surge it is possible that you only blew a fuse. If it is a blown fuse, make sure you only use the same type fuse.

We had a power surge in our living room while the TV was on. It was also plugged into a surge protector, however, everything else turned back on but the TV. There is no power going into it at all, as if...


Sounds like it might have blew a fuse on the AC input to the power supply, have to remove the back and look for a fuse near where the AC wires go from the plug on the tv. If the fuse is good
the power supply board will have to be checked or replaced..Next time consider buying a surge
protector that starts clamping at a lower voltage. Panamax brands usually start going to work
at 150v rms, where most others start at 330v rms..

Magnavox 19MD358D experienced a power surge, will not turn on. What are the steps to troubleshoot?


The Maganvox TV was still under warranty, I called 1-800-705-2000 and talked with a TV Tech. He instructed me to unplug the TV for one minute. This is called a "hard-reset". I waited for one minute, plugged the TV directly into the outlet, turned the TV on and it worked.
The reason I plugged the TV directly into the outlet and not the power strip, is because I think the fuse burned out in the power-strip.

Have a Toshiba MW24F11 combo tv. Near lightning strike through surge suppressor. Will not turn on. 6.3 amp fuse blown; replace, blew again. Next step, or start looking for replacement. Set is 25...


power surges generally damage diodes and capacitors causing the fuse to blow, any reputable tv shop can repair for a fraction of replacing this set.

Tv wont turn on


The surge most likely shorted the horizontal output transistor, and with that being shorted, it causes the power supply to "sing" from the increased load it is seeing. Unfortunately, it would probably cost near $100 to repair unless you were able to do it yourself.
