LCD TV blows fuses

Our 32 inch LCD made by Element Electronics keeps blowing 4 amp 220 volt fuses. We have checked plug to verify that we are getting 120 volt. It just stopped working all of the sudden. Can you help us? thank you

    Thank you so much for your great and common sense suggestion. We will try to find someone to look at the TV and see if they can find the defective diode. Otherwise,  we will have 50 lbs of electronic waste in our office to get rid off since the TV is just over the warranty period of one year, Thanks again for your help. Aloha

Since the main fuse is being effected, it suggests that there is a major problem in the power supply section. I would be looking for a shorted rectifier diode. If you have any experience with electronics, you may be able to locate this problem. If hte set is still in warranty, return it for warranty service. If not, try loking for burned components etc.

    IF the set is close to teh warranty ending period, try calling in a warranty claim anyway. Speak to a manager. If the timeframe is really close (week or two), they mayu cover it anyway.

Fuse keeps blowing


There should be a short circuited component/s at its main power regulator board. Check and replace it.

Philips 32PFL3505D/F7 32-Inch LCD HDTV keeps turning off when I turn it on


very common failure on this tv is electrolytic capacitors failing on the power supply, the module that your power cord plugs into. The Caps can appear to have swollen tops, replace with same type or slightly higher working voltage. Observe capacitor polarity when installing new parts. Probably 1000 mfd @ 16V could be 1000mfd @ 25V.
you need soldering skills to repair the parts in question.

No High Voltage


I finally got my hands on a manual. I haven't checked as yet, but there is a 4A 250V - 5X20mm Time Lag fuse (slow blow) under a plate next to AC plug on the rear panel. I pulled the back panel to do a visual and didn't see anything burnt or fried. I'll get back to you if I discover the fuse was blown.

125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing


if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it

42" LCD HD TV keeps blowing fuses.


A ceramic fuse stands up to heat better than a non-ceramic fuse. I'm no pro, but it sounds like your power inverter board maybe bad. There are replacements out there. Good luck

Sylvania 6632 LG blows fuse when plugged in


I too had this problem. I read some posts on this site about how to repair it, and low behold, they worked! I took the back off of the TV, and the first thing I found was the fuse was blown. With my meter, I checked the first 1N5406 rectifier diode after the fuse, and found that it had shorted out. Then I had to learn to desolder the diode, which I learned about on Youtube. I bought a pair replacement diodes at Radioshack for $1.49 and four replacement 125 volt 4 amp fuses. The whole repair cost about $5.00 and a few hours about learning about electronics. The TV works great! Good times!
