    Was given a Element 19" LCD TV that doesn't power on or show standby light. Was told the power cord was tripped over and knocked the TV over or off a shelf. I don't know. But anyway I took the PSU out and check for bad fuses first. Found one and so I replaced it. But it blows them as quick as plug it in. So now the problem is something else. What should I check and how should I check it. I only have a basic digital multimeter. TV I know isn't worth much but if I can fix it or find another PSU I'd rather put it to use.

    Any number of things could have gone wrong with the TV...

    broken trace...blown capacitor...fuse...separated solder joint...

    Test every connection with your multimeter, if that's what your time is worth.

    Enjoy your new electronics hobby.
