Re: Power outage fried my TV
Usually,the AC fuse is located by following the AC cord into the tv and the culprit will be close to where the cord attaches.Note:if the
replacement fuse blows,then additional parts need to be changed.

The site is legit but many of the requests are not. Example: a cat was hit by a car and buried by its owner. After a few days it clawed out and went to a neighbor. She took it to a vet who told her its treatment would be covered by a fund for severely injured animals. She created a GFM for "Zombie Cat." Now the case is going to court as the owner, the neighbor, and the Humane Society are each claiming ownership of the cat and the funds. ($3,000+)
you can check the fuse with a multimeter or take it to the hardware store and get a new one. they are cheaper than a new microwave. If it still blows the microwave fuse check for magnetron numbers may need to replace it.
It is a heat problem with a comb filter that is saldered on the mother board. My neighbor bought the part after it fail with-in warranty the 1st time and it took a GREAT TV repair shop to come in take the mother board out and bring back to the shop. Close to $200 to fix.
I had the exact same problem with this model a few months ago. Repairman came out to my house and told me that Panasonic is well aware of the problem but never issued a recall on it. He then charged me $150 to take off the back of the tv and replace a blown fuse with another fuse with a slightly higher voltage rating. Took him all of 5 minutes. He took off back of tv and the fuse is located, if you are standing at the back of the tv, on the bottom in the left hand corner. You can't miss it. I wish I could tell you which fuse he put in but I didnt see it. Sorry. Try it for yourself and you might be able to save $149.50, b/c I doubt that fuse cost much more then 50 cents. Good luck.
lso had the exact problem about 2 weeks ago on my L46WD22.Took it to the authorized repair shop and they told me they had others on their shelf for over a month. Since the board has been on back order for a while, my repair shop called and actually got to talk to an engineer at RCA.The problem seems to be a surface mount fuse that RCA said they also could not get.My repair center said that he found a fuse to fit the board, and though it was a higher rated fuse, installed it.TV works fine and it is back in my house, but the repair center is not getting paid for the work they did not fix it!!!
dude i dont know if this will help you or not but the same thing happened to mine and im an electrician, so i took it apart and screwed around with it and everything seemed to be cool so i took it to a tv repair shop and they fixed it and it only cost me $65.00. he told me that the power supply motherboard burned out for good.
