Hello , my name is Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions
When you pull out the power cord and back in, can you hear a clicking sound inside ?Any problems with the tv prior to this ?
no clickingsound when plugging in . no problems prior to this
I bought it at Walmart in Norwich , NY . There is an S & S appliance store in Norwich. Possibly take it to them telling them about the 8 amp ceramic fuse ?
Yes they would be able to test it for and as I said find out at the same time if only the fuse is gone .I can tell you that this board costs around $80 to buy if it has to be replaced instead of repaired.So you could expect a repair of approx. $160 to $200 if it has to be replaced.If you`d like to have an idea from different repair shops the click the link below and enter your zip code;www.tvrepairpros.com

satisfie - thanks. Unfortunate, but it sounds like I will have a good repair bill.
Might not be all that bad , I gave you the worst case scenario , you might just get away with a $125 repair (or less).Thanks again and please take the time to use the rating system that you can see if you are satisfied.
