Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello , my name is Jack Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions so could you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?By the way , this is NOT an answer so there is no need to rate yet.
Thanks , a few questions;
Do you mean that it trips the actual house breaker ?
When its on , does it operate normally ?
No acting up like a shaky picture or sound etc. ?
Yes it is the same thing if you mean that you have to reset that switch into the breaker panel .
This looks like a bad short if it does it every times and does not come on at all .
Could you please lookup your tv`s model number located on the back cover ?
o.k and does trip the breaker as soon as you plug in the power cord or when you try to turn it on ?
O.k then you may simply have a failing power strip , please do try it in the wall outlet directly
Sorry for the delays in replies , somehow I do not get notified straight away when you reply .
Yes that is what I meant power strip= surge protect and that small breaker gets weak or defective at times.
How does it work plugged in the outlet directly ?
By the way , the surge protect is always nice to have for smaller equipment but most modern TV's like yours already have their built in surge protect so again you can get another surge protector that will work with this tv plugged in but I cannot see a problem or danger in having it connected directly to the wall outlet

You mean the tv does not come on ?
O.k then somehow there is a serious problem with the tv internally or perhaps simply its power cord if it was working prior to moving it
You said that it still tripping the power surge/power bar or the house breaker ??
What is tripping when you plug it directly into the wall outlet ?
