Unhappy Tv help

HI, my name is Jennifer,and I have gotten a few questions concerning my VIZIO TV, model number VX371hdtv and it was manufactured November 2006. It does not power on, the only thing that comes on when I plug it in is the orange Vizio light, other than that NO picture NO sound. A friend of mine had gave it to me and said that it stopped working on them as well but all they had to do at the time was change the fuse, and now once again for some reason it has stopped working again.. Could it be because of a wrong size fuse? Or possibly even the fuse blown out? What sizes of fuse are the proper size and or if thats not the problem, could you please tell me another way to possibly fix my tv? Thanks

Please start a new post in the TV section and then provide good clear picture of the power supply board.
Look real close at the power supply board where the fuse is to see what the type and fuse rating is printed on the board.
What did you do so far as testing is concerned? Do you have meter to check the fuse to know if it is blown or not, etc.?
