Friend you have a 400ma fuse, location FL231 that is blown, it is shaped like a square and it looks red, there are three of them next to the Fly back, replace this fuse and re solder the entire fly back and problem solved good luck Here is a picture

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
so if this is the problem where can i buy this fuse and how difficult is it to replace
Expert:  Rick williams replied 5 years ago.

With these questions, have you ever soldered before??

if no and uncertain on opening up the unit, this repair by a shop will cost around 200.00.

if you can handle it you can save 200.00. And this is the problem friend. No if'sWink

 

money saver if you or someone you know can actually do the repair.

 

well here is the part on E-bay and here is the part number 259213

 

These are some part stores, CALL THEM IF POSSIBLE always check with manufacturer , And you may need the name of the part and its part number off the part itself

will this also fix the bowtie effect and the fit of the pic to screen....forgot to tell you the top and bottom are not visible
Expert:  Rick williams replied 5 years ago.

Yes this is a common problem, I'm here to help you save money, thats all not to take advantage of you, tv repair is very expensive these days, and customers forget that we are on there side..

 

a repair shop will charge you around 200.00 for this repair, And your only paying 9.00, bucks for the fix,, you just have to do the work.
