Re: fuse location on tv
A fuse is a small glass tube about 3/4" to 1". it is located near the end of the power cord inside the tv. it is located in the power board supply circuit.
there are several reason why fuse blew up.
1. sudden surge current/voltage in your area
2. shorted in either power supply or horizontal deflection circuits.
when replacing fuse, be sure to change it with the same value. but if after replacement has been done and the fuse blew again, there is a short in the circuit as stated in reason no. 2.
refer to a qualified service technician if you are not inclined with this job. good luck!

The power board is the one that the power lead connects to on the back of the panel there is two fuses on the board check them for continuity and replace if blown with ones of the same values
look at the tops of the capacitors for popping they should be flat topped not bulging up replace any that are bulging
finding a supplier for you without a geographic location for yourself is not possible
also you can get the power board repaired or replaced but the power surge during the failure could have damaged other components making it cheaper to replace the whole TV with a new one
I wouldn't think a short , would blow a fuse ! A lose connection more then likely . A ground connection to be specific . You would need to look at a wiring diagram for each of the affected componets to see if they share a common power (fuse) or a ground point on the body , chassis etc... You can look at free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html And do a voltage drop test on the circuits to find which part of the circuit has the problem .B+ voltage or ground side . There are videos on youtube showing how to do a voltage drop testing . It would also be a good idea to have a repair manual that shows ground locations . Ground locations can be behind the dash panel , left or right kick panels . I mean they hide them in places you wounldn't even think . Automotive electrical testing is one of the must time consuming jobs there is . The fix mite be as easy as just tighting a nut on a ground stud . But finding an getting to it are another story . I have had to pull instrument panels to get at bad grounds . Good luck !
The specifics of where your fuse panel(s) is/are will depend a lot on the make and model of your car. There is often one panel in the passenger compartment, and one in the engine compartment. This WikiHow page does a pretty good step buy step of identifying panels and locating / testing fuses for if they're blown: How to Check Fuses
if both do not work I'd check the flasher unit first or look for a blown fuse (by the passenger side left knee, behind the cover on the console.) The flasher unit is behind the bolster cover above the driver's knees.
This is typical of the 20 amp fuse blown. It can blow due to slamming the door or even opening the door to quickly while it is running. It could also blow if there is a failure of one of the door interlock switches. This fuse is ceramic and looks similar to a cylinder automotive fuse and is located behind the control panel on this model.
always start by checking fuses. look in your owner's manual for fuse box locations and fuse locations. check to see if you've got a blown fuse, if you do, replace it with the same amperage fuse. if the new one pops immediately, you've got an electrical short somewhere in the system. if the fuse is good however, check your brake switch which is located on your brake pedal arm under the dash. when the brake pedal is depressed, the switch opens, making the brake lights come on and releasing the neutral safety switch allowing you to shift from park. the brake switch is a common problem, but is a pain to replace in most cars. i recommend you take it to the dealer to have the work done if you have little automotive experience. the labor wont be expensive as it's about a 10 minute repair. and i think the brake switch is one of those parts only available at the dealership anyways.
Got it fixed. Removed back off tv and found the fuse right where the cord enters. Removed fuse[didn't look like it was blown] and got new one from radio shack, installed and now the tv works. That was all it was. Thanks again
The fuse is located just upper right to the connector that attaches to the main board. This is a SMD pico fuse that is rated for 3 A @ 32 V DC that protects the Vin bus. Replacing the fuse may not fix the problem as it has most probably opened because of failure of another component.
