TV repairman blew fuses??

I had a repair man come by to take a look at my set and he used a jumper wire to do something I am not sure what I was in the front turning the tv on while he was in the back of it. I heard a loud pop followed by some chioce words from the repair man. he sadi there was some smoke back there and that 3 resistors were blown. I am assuming he blew these. He then said that he could not fix it at my home that it would need to go to the shop and that he would need at least $400 and could not guarentee that would fix the problem. O nthe work order he stated that the IC fuse was open on B+, would that be the flyback??

...repairing any electrical and electronics devices like you said high end television set is in fact no joke to handle and any personnel attempting to fix any internal problems requires a lot of knowlegde and not just guessing.. but because he blew up somthing does not neccessarily mean he blew up the flyback component.

.... for now pal i guess you better find appropriate service center to handle that exact type of television. or the authorized service center in short.. good luck..

Yes maybe ...but he made problems alot worse bypassing your fuse, the fuse is there to blow if you have a short and not harm other components. my guess is that he damaged your power supply and then fixing that youll still have the orginal problem. I think I was the only tech in Houston that could troubleshoot. Sad, but very few good tv men or big screen. we trained are outside guys not to touch much but do slight adjustments and bring it into shop if you dont have a clue and they make some story up to the customer. good luck

Bulbs blew on my nutone allure range hood new bulbs does not work. please help

Depends what is wrong.To call a repair man will cost a service call before he starts. Check all your wiring and see if there is a short. See what you can do before you call a repairman.

Speakers stopped workin in a 2000 Suburban

If you have a non-original stereo, there may be inline fuses in the wire harness leading to the stereo. Look under the dash with a flashlight and see if you can find the harness. Alternatively, you can pull the stereo from the dash and look at the wires that way.
The speakers can be checked by using a 1.5 volt battery. Unhook the speaker wires from the back of the stereo. Then, using jumper wires, MOMENTARILY connect the battery to each pair of speaker wires. If the speaker is good, you will hear the speaker cone move (it will make kind of a scratching noise) as the battery is connected.
If the speakers check out, and you are SURE that the stereo is receiving power and ground at all the correct points, then I'm afraid that your stereo is likely damaged.

I have a 2006 Hitachi Plasma 42HDS69 that will not turn on. When you power up the TV, the fuse blew. Replaced fuse, powered up the TV, could hear relay click in and fuse blew at the same time. Is this...

You have defective power supply board, Are you OK to strip it down and inspect the board? You will either have to replace the board or have it replaced/repaired professionally.
I hope I have been of help

I turned the tv off the other night with the remote just like i always do got up next morning to turn it on it won't come on I have tried everything unplugging it pushing the power button on the tv instead...

Good day sir/maam, chances are you tv's switching power supply circuit has gone bad, you may try the following.
  1. open the back cover and locate the fuse, check if the thin wire is intact, (unplug the unit before opening the back cover) replace and test if the fuse blew up. test again.
  2. if the fuse is intact. replace the cover.
At this point. you have no choice but to call your dealer or repair man for service.

Electrical short radio 2005 ford explorer sport trac

THE RADIO MOST LIKELY IS THE PROBLEM, WITHOUT THE REPAIR MANUALS IT WOULD BE VERY HARD TO REPAIR (man. not availiable to the public), YOUR BEST BET IS TO FIND A FORD AUTHORIZED REPAIR SHOP, THEY ARE ON THE NET, THE OTHER BUY A USED UNIT ON EBAY, THE LAST IS THE BEST OPTION, I HAVE DONE THIS ON SEVERAL CARS AND WORKED OUT GREAT, LESS THAN $100 FOR A USED UNIT.

No red in picture

If this happened at the same rime that the repairman replaced the IC's in the set, I would say he is responsible to repair this problem. I would tend to think that the red picture tube socket is loose, or the repairman pulled a cable or connector loose, unless he turned on the set while something on the chassis was touching something else and blew something out. Good Luck
