Customer Question
I heard a pop...

I heard a pop sound and my TV went off. My grandson opened the TV and found a burnt fuse. We could not locate the same fuse size and am still looking for it. It was for a Sylvania Model #LC320SS2 120V 60Hz 110W. If I did replace the fuse, would that fix it or would there be other complications from a burnt fuse?

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Sylvania is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Manufactured October 2011 and bought it then or 2012. S/N ME1A1142116874 (A17FLUT) from Funai Corp , Torrance CA

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The TV doesn't come on at all after the fuse popped and we cant find another one.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

It was working fine no problems.
