I have a Philips 41GR8840 rear projection TV which blows the main
circuit board fuse instantly (even when the unit is in standby
mode)Leading up to this problem it used to make a funny crackling
noise. I dao't have a circuit diagram and feel like I'm fumbling in the
dark a bit. Can anyone shed any light as to the possible problem?
** You do realise the fuse MUST be a "slow blow" type ???? ** See above - a standard (plain wire) fuse will blow at EVERY switch
on due to the massive surge drawn by the de-gaussing coil.
