After a power outage, the tv wont turn back on. was hoping there is a fuse that may have blown.

Hi Michael,
Yes there is a fuse in your TV too and sometimes you do escape with a blown fuse after a power outage. Please open if you can the back cover of your TV, locate the fuse. If you do not see any damaged or blown parts, replace the fuse with the same rating. If the works, enjoy watching. If the fuse blows again, the power board needs to be repaired or replaced.
Good luck.

The power went off and wen it came back on the tv wont turn back on

If your power outage wad caused by a surge your tv may have died. Check fusebox for tripped circuit breaker also check tv wall plug fuse in case that has blown. It might be that the tv internal fuse has blown, you should disconnect the tvv from the electricity supply if you intend opening the rear of the set to check this.
If they are all okay the set probably needs the services of a trained technician

Good Luck

Sanyo tv wont turn on

Someone would have to open the set and look first to see if the fuse that connects right to the power cord inside is blown.

I turn on tv and two second later it turns right off. no picture when this happens

I have the same exact TV and the same exact problem it seems pretty popular, but there also seem to be different answers to similar questions. Some sort of problem with the Power Supply Unit. Maybe a blown fuse or bad capacitor, thats what i am about to check for, ill be coming back here in hope of finding a solution.

Sylvania 42" flat screen won't turn on

First you should check the fuse and the wiring in your tv by removing the back cover. Make sure no wires are bare or touching. If there are any, wrap them with electrical tape.
If you cannot see anything wrong by looking, then it is probably the set has a bad transformer (high voltage)

Seems like a fuse blew on my sylvania 42'' plasma bought in 04?

it isnt a fuse, if your fuse was blown, it wouldnt even turn on, even for a second, it is your Y-SUS board, you can order one through there website, i think
