My westinghouse ltv, which I use as a computer monitor, stopped working after some sort of power surge (All electronics in the room shut off). I checked the fuse, and it was blown. (5 amp 250 V slow blow ceramic 5x20 mm) At an electronics store an employee suggested I try a gdc 5a- a 5 amp 250 V time delay glass fuse. After plugging in the power cable, the fuse immediately blew. The employee said that the fuse should have worked, and that if it didnt, the tv might have another problem. Should the replacement fuses that I bought work? Does anyone have any other suggestions for fixing the tv?

If there was nothing else wrong with the poaer supply, then the fuse should have worked. Something has shorted in the primary cicuit of the SMPS. Don't waste any more time or money on fuses until the actual problem is repaired. Fuses usually blow for a reason, they are usually NOT the "problem".
