Hello,

When I power on my LED TV, I can see a white component producing a little light that resembles a spark with a faint audible sound. In [1], I show a picture of the component that produces the "spark" which I suspect to be a fuse (I was unable to attach the picture to this message). The TV does not start at all.

My questions are:
  1. Is the little white guy a fuse?
  2. What happens if I connect its two ends with a wire, will this fix any problem associated with it? I do not have enough soldering experience to actually remove it, and put in a new fuse.
Many thanks,
Amine.
