    There is no light, no anything...which leads me to the fuse...

  • dculican Aug 19, 2008

    Do you know if it is a common fuse and if so, do you think radio shack will have it?

  • dculican Aug 20, 2008

    I pulled out the switch assembly (with about 4 wires coming out of it and 1 ground wire) I took it to Radio Shack and the 20 something kids working there looked at it funny. I will take it today to a real electronic place and hopefully they can help me out. I have the power cord also, Is there a way to test the switch without being hooked into the TV?

If you see a light on the front panel, is not the fuse but something else in the power supply circuit board or could also have damaged the main board due to the poor voltage regulation of these power supplies.

    That is correct. check the fuse first and if that is open make sure you put one with the same current ratings.

  • Jaime Hernandez Aug 19, 2008

    The fuse should be a standard 250V/5 Amps fuse and radio shack should have it. Once you open the bcak vover of your TV, you will see it there.

    @ danculican,



    It depends on the revision of the board but normally they use inductors as protection instead of a fuse in the secondary side of the power circuitry. There should be one fuse in there. Compare the pictures from the link and see if you can find it.

My plasma tv won't turn back on after a power outage???


First, unplug the TV, wait 30 seconds to 1 minute, then plug back in & try it. This allows the unit to reset.
Be sure you AC outlet breaker has not tripped.
could also be the TV fuse or power supply PCB.
You should be sure to put a good surge protector in line with this TV as these constant surges are going to severely shorten the life of the unit.

TV won't turn on


there is a surge protector on the main power board this has probably blown. or the main power board fuse or plug fuse. check them one by one. there even may be a secondary fuse in the tv around 3amp witch can blow. it will have red and black lines on it or orange that is the rating of the fuse. surge protector is like a battery shap round with 2 prongs onto the board.

Had a power outage and now my tv is totally dead. Any suggestions?


It died from the power surge. If it is still under warranty, check if it covers power surges. If not, you should probably buy a new TV. Buy a good quality surge protector just in case something like this happens again. It's a good idea to get surge protectors for your other expensive electronics too.

I was watching my tv when my son hit the reset button on my surge protector..now my tv will not turn on. Any ideas?


Turn everything off, the tv the power and make sure the button is not active at the moment. Some surge protectors do come with a fuse but when you turn the surge protector back on itself make sure it is recieving power, there is usually a red light on the switch while recieving power. Then try again once you know there is power to it.

After a power outage yesterday, my 24" Pure Flat Tube Stereo TV (TTM-2420) is not receiving power. (the glowing light on front of TV is not on and the TV cannot be turned on) I don't know how long power...


Surge protectors are meant to trip whenever an outage occurs to prevent component damage. If possible remove back panel and check if any fuses were burned. If all looks normal then your component is most likely fried.
