Question Zenith TV (fuse)

I have replaced the fuse in the tv three times and everytime i plug it in after replacing it instantly blows the fuse, before i can even turn it on... Any suggestions or if you have a clue as to what is wrong advice would be helpful.

Thumbs up

Not knowing a model number or age of the set, I can only speculate on this issue.

There's a good chance that a diode or filter capacitor has shorted in the low voltage supply. Another option might be the Horizontal Output Transistor (HOT) has a way of shorting out and snuffing the fuse.
