I have a Sony KV-34HS510. However, I dont notice any "standby light" blinking. It just doesn't start, doesn't make any noises. It acts like it isn't plugged in.

Hi, I noticed the monster thread here:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=928945

While searching before coming here, I found this little tidbit:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t463070...uck_in_standby

and the guy said this:

Quote:


Unit is dead and there are no blinks---Problem in the standby power
section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should
show open)

Should I be digging through the other massive thread?

Might be as simple as the fuse, F501. It's on the A-board, very near where the AC cord is connected to the board.

Woot! cover off, fuse located. Err located after missing it, taking 3 photos on my cell phone, getting ready to upload them, couldn't because my flickr/yahoo account was disabled for non-use. Didn't get to post where is the fuse? what does it look like? with photos.

Read this bit here:
http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic....24836&forum=34

Decided if a female accounting major can do this, its time to man up!.


Looked again. Hey, there is a @#$@#$ fuse in the corner, regular looking glass cylinder with metal end caps. DOH! Got a distinct dark brown residue/hazing on one internal end of the fuse. Now to find a replacement.

Is this the correct fuse info?
F501 is rated at 6.3A, 250V. Unfortunately, fuses usually blow due to a fault downstream, so the fuse may blow again, if its open.[addsig]

EDIT: confirmed fuse specs with Sony Rep.

Success. Bought a couple spares from a EPO (Electronics Parts Outlet) a local store (.70 each) popped one in and it works again.

I saw some mention about vacuuming in the inside clean of dust, I didn't because I wasn't sure about accidentally transferring static electricity, etc. How much of a threat is that? Can one just lightly vacuum with the soft bristle attachment and move it over the boards, other parts, etc?

Yes! My friend had the SAME thing happen to him in 2010 to his
Panasonic 36HL43G tv.
He bought a 4 pack of fuses from Rat Shak for like $5.
6.3A 250V .
And his tv worked like a charm, after that.
Always remember to check the fuse next to the
AC power cord.
