TV Motherboard White Component Sparks when TV Turned On

Post by aminemarref »

Hello,

When I power on my LED TV, I can see a white component in the motherboard that produces a little light that resembles a spark with a faint audible sound. In [1], I show a picture of the component that produces the "spark" which I suspect to be a fuse. The TV does not start at all.

My questions are:
1. Is the little white guy a fuse?
2. What happens if I connect its two ends with a wire, will this fix any problem associated with it? I do not have enough soldering experience to actually remove it, and put in a new fuse.
Many thanks,
Amine.

1. No. It is an LED.
2. No, you will short-circuit an electric component which might be causing even more damage.

Questions:
- Has this TV ever worked?
- What happened just before it stopped working?
- How old is it, do you have any warranty left
- Does it not react at all?
We hate rut, but we fear change.
