TV sparks inside case

My TV sparks inside it's case. I took it apart and they seem to be coming from the power supply.
I have replaced the fuse many times on this thing - it doesn't burn out with this problem.
Do I replace the power supply? Where would you recommend to find one.
Thanks.

After a lightning storm, my TV will not turn on. Is there a fuse or something on the in coming power that may have blown causing it not to turn on?


Any TV subjected to a power surge will have problems. If you can remove the back cover, do so. Locate the glass fuse. In the best situations the fuse is clear and opened, and replacement will repair your TV. In worst cases the fuse may be blackened, and you will see that many components are burned and shattered. If this latter is true, only replacing the TV is your best bet. In many cases electronics may be connected to surge protectors, but lightning will over ride these devices and cause damage. I have seen this happen many times.Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

TV Sparks inside case


I think I would turn it off and unplug it. You could get an estimate on reparing the power supply cord or whatever the problem is or the TV maybe ready for replacement.

Sparking rabbit ears


If the fuse blows the instant the power is switched on, there is most likely a heavy short in the primary side of the power supply. This could be the rectifier diodes or the switching transistor (or IC). If you do not have experience identifying and replacing shorted semiconductors, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
