thank you so much for the info. we had our tv fixed within a day for around $20. we did have a problem finding a store that sold the correct fuses. ended up finding an electrician warehouse that sold them in bulk so we ended up with extras (and we're $5/fuse), and eventually found them at sutherlands. so after my husband ran all over town he found what we needed within a half mile of the house. but we were just thankful it was a cheap easy fix. thanks so much for this post w/ the pics, they helped a lot!
