Gotta love people who think like that :-)
Fuses rarely blow for no reason. The cause *may* be easy to fix, or just as
likely difficult and/or expensive!
If you have to ask I suggest it will not be easy for YOU to fix however,
unless buying a new set is an "easy fix" :-)
I've finally got round to doing this. I've seen the warning on the back of
the TV that says "Do not remove cover. Electric shock."
1. If I have the TV unplugged, is there no risk of electric shock?
2. Do I need to take off the whole back half of the TV just to look at the
fuses near the power supply?
there is often still a risk of electric shock. best practice is to
stand on an insulating surface and only touch the internals of TV with
one hand (and no other body part)
large electric charges may be stored in the capacitors near the power
section and in the CRT itself.
Usually, yes. in most cases the fuse will not blow unless some other
part of the TV is faulty, so the makers have no incentive to make the
fuse easily accessible,
