Hi i have a wharfedale power cube 8. it cut out on me a couple of months back and didnt know why, when i tryed to turn it on it made a noise like it was trying to start but no light or anything come on. So i left it and im trying to get it working again, i opened it up to have a look whats wrong i found that both of the fuses were burnt out, so i replaced them. I brought everything correct and put the fuses in correctly it come on start working, soon as i connect a input device it just burnt out the fuses again i must have used about 10 now.

Check for power at the wall outlet, check for a manual switch/circuit breaker/fuse on the back. Check the battery in the remote, is it good.
The internal switchmode power supply usually has a power disconnect fuse, it may have operated. Internal components are difficult to service unless your a trained tech with the correct tools to disassemble the TV. Suggest you take the TV to a repair shop.
If your generator/alternator keeps burning out the stator coils, it seems that they are being overloaded. Since it occurs over an 8-month period, the load isn't like a short in the wiring, which would cause a fuse to blow. This sounds like a constant heavier than normal load since it takes 8 months to fail. The first thing I would suspect would be the battery. If it had a shorted cell, it would draw more current trying to charge. If this was the case, you'd notice slow cranking, etc. (It's also the easiest to eliminate as a problem) Next thing I'd look at would be the voltage regulator. Something is demanding more power than it should to make the alternator to fail so soon.
you said you changed the fuse. (inside the tv)double check to see if its blown agian if not. keep it unplugged for about 20 minutes to reset the surge protector onboard . if you have done all that the fuse didnt protect your tv from the surge and it gone. IF ITS CONNECTED TO A SURGE PROTECTOR unplug it from that and plug directly into the wall TRY THAT FIRST let me know if this works.
check ur trunk where there is a cap thing back there where wires run to make sure that didnt burn i have 1998 camry that did the same as urs and i checked mine and i fixed mine and now everythings works now
got a 32 inch wharfedale tv from argos also and it seems to boot up and then shut down and just loops, if i keep unplugging it i can sometimes get it on but with a high pitch wailing, only 15 months old, gutted!
