    When I power on my LED TV, I can see a white component in the motherboard 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. 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,
