I watched my TV this morning, all was fine, but when I went back a few hours later I discovered it was dead!
I've checked that the power was on, plugs, all outside wires connected etc. I will change the fuse but don't know if that will fix it. The fuse taken out of the plug looks fine to my untrained eye.
It's a Beko 14272/R and it's either 4 or 6 years old ( can't remeber which year it was bought for me)
Any advice?

get a new one.

Tv repair takes a while (assuming you can find some one to do it) and is not cheap, hence my first suggestion

:confused: I am not sure if a trained eye can spot a duff fuse out of a 13amp plug. OK so someone tell me I'm wrong.

doubt if its plg fuse, swap it with a known working one and it should be 5 amp not 13

Yes it's a 5 amp fuse and a new one didn't make the tv work.

By untrained eye I mean that i'm not an expert however the fuse wasn't obviously marked i any way to suggest it had blown out.

Even a trained eye can't see if a BS1362 fuse has gone.

The only way to tell is to test it

maybe fuse in plug,or in back of tv(cover needs removing)

NEVER remove the cover of a TV unless you have been trained to do so.It can still give you a fatal shock when unplugged

Mine hasn't.

Save the environment - have the TV repaired.
