I am trying to replace fuses, and I got the same voltage/amps fuses, but I'm not sure if the TV requires fast blow fuse.

Do I have to be concerned about this? Can i simply put slow blow, despite the original fuses being fast blow? Does it make a dangerous difference? Thanks.

I am trying to put fuses into the model:
Samsung HPN5039

Fast blow is usually the best thing to use. The thing that blew the fuses in the first place, if not resolved, could fry your telly. I'd use fast blow fuses & a surge protector. CRT tvs needed slow burners, as they sometimes had spikes when starting up
