I have a Samsung Plasma television model number

I have a Samsung Plasma television model number PN51F8500AFXZA and serial numberZ6PT3CBF400763A. It is connected to a Motorola set top cable box. A few days ago the transformer to the set top box exploded and tripped the circuit breaker. The breaker was reset . The cable company technician came by yesterday and replaced the faulty transformer and the set top box is still functional but the television will not power on ie even the remote control sensor light is off. I have had an electrician check the wall socket and we do not have a line fault with the power source. Which fuse or power centre did the short circuit damage in the television and where can I purchase it?

I have a SHARP 37"Aquos LC-37G2x with a TU-37G2X AVC. It was

I have a SHARP 37"Aquos LC-37G2x with a TU-37G2X AVC.It was dad's and was in storage (cool n dry) for a while after he passed away.I decided to rescue it from the dark and set it up downstairs.All good worked fine last week with a Digital set top box connected via Component input.Yesterday, I went to hook up a Raspberry Pi to it and prior to connection the RED power light was blinking steadily on the panel. When i used the remote to power on, the power light goes from RED to GREEN - relays in the panel click the the power light goes back to red. No backlighting occurs.So, i try to power on via the AVC box and same result.Now i disconnect all inputs - same result - here's the kicker, I disconnect the factory cable from the OUTPUT-2 socket (as pictured) on the AVC and power up. The panel springs to life and cooling fans whirr in the panel and a info box is displayed on the panel (screen) "Loss of Sync". As soon as I re-attach the Output 2 plug the panel turns off and goes back to red blinking light.Any ideas? Is it in sleep mode?I have tried as many soft re-boots as i could find on the 'net - Also AVC has 2 hard reset buttons which i have tried to no avail. Am I missing something?The picture was still awesome last week for a tv of its age and hope with your help we can get it running againJA: Can you guesstimate how old your Sharp is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 10+ yearsJA: What troubleshooting have you tried?Customer: LC-37G2xJA: The TV expert can solve this for you.
