Outside transformer blew, now TV doesn't work

The other day I had a transformer go down in my neighborhood. The TV does not work now. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be? Does this TV have a fuse that can be replaced, possibly power supply? This thing cost too much to throw in the trash!

    Ok, after searching high and low for the fuses and driving over 100 miles to get them, as soon as I plugged it in.... POOF! There goes the fuse. There is what looks like a transistor of some kind right next to the fuse which looks blown up as well. I guess it's time to take it to a professional?

If the fuse is blown black, you should never ever put in another fuse as a fuse will not blow up like that for no reason, as a fuse is there to prvent further damage to the set. and damage to other parts.

I hope is only a fuse and it will not be hard to find it should be close to where the power cord goes in and it has to be replaced with the same amps and size.Make sure the set is not plug in whe you remove the lower back and once you replace it put the back cover on and plug it in,if more damage is present it will blow up again right away or it will blow up when you push the power button,I hope it doesn't but if it does you will need someone qualified to check the rest.Be careful

Hi, I stupidly turned on my brand new Francis X7 machine without using a transformer (I bought it from the US, used it in Malaysia), and of course, something blew, and it now doesn't work at all. Any...

The machine is made to work with 120 volts and you have plugged this on a 220 volt mains circuit thereby blowing up the fuse, or the power circuit, possible heater and the main controller unit board.
A step down transformer was needed to work this unit safely . Now unless the unit is opened the damage cannot be confirmed but if you are lucky the fuse would ahve blown and saved the rest. if so test it with a new fuse using a 220 to 120 volt convertor.( transformer with good rating)

Fuzzy picture, color and volume comes and goes

the main chip in the TV that controls all these options (sound - sharpness etc...) you will need to bring this TV into a repair shop - the transformer that blew up caused a voltage surge that fried this chip

A transformer blew in our neighborhood and now our tv picture is bowed and the colors are shadowing one another

Your conversion IC's are out, they cost about 40 dollars for 2, if you know how to solder, you can change them yourself, otherwise, repair shops usually charge 4 or 5 hundred

Transformers and fuses keep blowing

If you are where it's warm and you are using air conditioning, have the technician check the coil in the relay in the outdoor unit. I replaced 2 transformers before I figured out the coil was shorted out and drawing too much current.
