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?

Fuses usually keep blowing for a reason.

Generally any two adjacent (or non-adjacent) pins on any device (capacitor, Diode, Transistor, MOSFET) will NOT read very low ohms (with the exception of coils & transformers).

As of right now, the zd 902 diode is the only thing reading around 0. Should it be?

Pull (unsolder 1st) either end and test it again. If still "around 0" out of circuit - it's Bad.
