Does TV have a fuse or reset button? Where are they located?

Yes, all TVs have a fuse. You'll usually find it in a spring-clip holder on the circuit board inside the cabinet. Look for it in the area where the power cord connects to the board. Most TV sets use a small cartridge fuse, but some sets use a different type.

If you're asking this because your TV has gone dead, just be aware that if the fuse is bad it's normally because something else in the set failed and caused the fuse to blow. Fuses very seldom just go bad on their own. If you change the fuse, don't be surprised if it goes bad again.

And while this should go without saying, I'll say it anyway: be sure to unplug the TV from the AC outlet before taking the back off. You can get a nasty shock if you forget this step.

Wont turn on. is there a fuse or something inside

The unit has fuses but you will probably not find any bad ones. I would check the power supply for problems. If you unhook all but the control board it should produce all it's voltages which are usually marked by the connectors. If voltages are good the problem is in one of the boards which are unhooked. It would need replaced. If the voltages are not there the power supply board needs replaced. Let me know how you make out.

Hi withans
I can try to help you but it sounds like we`ll have to get to the power supply inside of it.
Since you have a multimeter it might be a plus.
If you are up to it let me know and we`ll check for some bad capacitors,
Also could you confirm that your model# is 26av502 ?

Thanks for using FixYa. The TV will automatically turn itself off after approximately 15minutes if it is tuned to a vacant channel or a station that completes its broadcast for the day. This feature does not work in VIDEO mode. If the power is cut off while you are viewing the TV, the last mode memory feature will turn the TV on automatically when the power is re supplied. If the power is going to be off for a long time or you are going to be away from your TV, unplug the power cord to prevent the TV from turning on in your absence. You’ll also need to check the swollen/bulged capacitors on the power supply board inside the TV. The TV itself turned it off in the case of any bad capacitors or overheating with the help of built-in sensors. You’ll need to replace the swollen/bulged capacitors. Please also check the power from and to the TV.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.



Want to check fuse on 46h83 toshiba

only fuse I know is near back of tv inside power section right next to the power cord input ... my first thought tho is damaged capacitors inside same area ... good luck getting it apart ... I took mine apart but difficult to figure how

Broke the plate above the funnel -- Bunn NHBX

The plate inside is not repairable. If you will get the model and date code from the bottom of the brewer and contact customer service, the brewer can be replaced. If the brewer is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If the machine is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced price.


Hello fixedopsmike,

There is a fuse in the TV set, if you would like to check and see if it has blown, here is a way you can do it:

1) Unplug the TV's power cord from the wall

2) Take the back off of the TV by removing the screws and slowly removing the back panel.

3) Look for a component that looks like a glass tube with metallic caps on each of the ends, this will be the fuse.

4) Visually inspect the fuse to see if it shows signs of being open (Blown) These signs are burn marks inside of the glass tube, an open conductor (wire) inside of the glass tube, or no visible wire inside of the tube.

5) using a multimeter set to resistance (R x 1) test the fuse for continuity (remove and change the fuse if found to be defective)

6) If the fuse is not bad, reinstall the fuse if removed, put the rear cover back on.

Now at this point we have determined if the problem is a fuse being blown or not, if you replace the fuse and the TV works great the problem is solved, if you replace the fuse and it blows again, or if the fuse was ok to begin with, then you have a problem that will require some knowledge of electronics pass the basics to continue on. At this point I would suggest that you call a qualified TV repair technician to troubleshoot and repair the TV in question.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

take off the back of the tv and look for a glass fuse if the inside of the fuse looks broke replace it by going to radio shack if still no fix get a new tv sincerely john

Glass or something behid the screen broke

Misha, I have bad news for you.

There is only one part behind that screen to break - a rather large mirror.

To verify:

Lay the TV down, face down, on a towel.
Remove the screw from the upper rar black plastic housing.
Lift straight off - you should see the mirror, or what is left of it, attached to the black plastic.

Sorry for your loss.

If you are interested in selling the ballast, let me know.
