Question about Sansui DTV2760 27" TV
I had a power outage and now my tv wont turn on is there a reset switch on the tv ?
Hello tvlover, The outage actually is not the problem but the spike that happened when your power came back on did the damage. That aside, you may just have a blown fuse. If you are able to and feel comfortable work with electronics, with the TV unplugged from the wall, take the back off of your TV and take a look at the line cord going into the circuit board, this will lead you to a fuse holder, look at the fuse and see if the filament inside has been blown (opened). If the fuse is blown relace it with one of the same amperage and voltage which should be written on the metal part of the fuse. Once the fuse is replaced, plug the power cord back into the wall and power it up. If it comes on and plays, that was your problem and you can turn the TV off unplug it and put the back cover back on, plug your TV back into the wall and enjoy. However if the fuse blows again, that could indicate a problem with a short somewhere in the powersupply path and that will require troubleshooting the set. Now I we have to troubleshhot this TV you will need a multimeter, an oscilloscope, and a schematic of the TV (at a minimum). If you do have electronics experience to this level and do not have this type of equipment, You will have to take the TV to a repair shop. Thank you, and I hope that it is just a blown fuse.
