Fuse in the plug? lol i dont have any spares...hmm...

lol thanks kelly...would like to be on my Wii only got it monday and not had much time for it...now my tv...grr...lol

best make sure you've got power to that socket first, try plugging something in that you know works;-)

yeah i have my wii, xbox, ps2, dvd player and surround sound all hooked up to the same one

Are your other sockets working? If not check your circuit breakers.
If they are check the fuse in the plug. If that's ok, is your TV running off an extension lead? Check the fuse in the extension lead.

the socket is ok cos ive switched them around. the extension is ok cos my wii is on and plugged into that. circuit breaker is ok as the sockets etc are working so its just my tv.

how do i check the fuse in the plug is working or not?

take the fuse out and swap it with one out of something else that you know works, use the same size fuse though.

lol na...thanks for the help..i dont use digital tv...just the normal 4 channels (5 dont work lol)

Is you extension cable surge protected? Can be an expensive mistake if it isn't. All my expensive electricals are all plugged into Belkin Surge protectors. I suffered a mighty loss in fortune as a result of not being surge protected and am not in a rush for it to happen again
