    A while back i had a severe power surge in my home, and afterwards, my
    TV stopped working and it smelled awful. I know a little about
    electronics so i opened it up and the fuse was blown, so i figured i
    needed a new one. I purchased one, and after i put it in and plugged in
    the TV, it immediately blew again. can anyone help me?

    Find the component or components that are causing the fuse to blow and
    replace them.

    Knowing a little can be a dangerous thing, at least you (hopefully)
    didn't put in a bigger and bigger fuse when they blew.

    Something is shorted in the power supply, check the rectifier and
    chopper transistor for starters.

    haha, well i know enough to know that putting a bigger fuse in is a
    very bad idea
  5. Sure, I can sell you fuses by the barrel.
