Tip & How-To about Galaxy Radios Radio Communications
When you cant get your radio turned on. All it does is blow the fuse imeadiatlly hooking it to power. Most likely it is the (reverse polarity diode). The quick fix is to locate your diode? This diode usually is back behind a coil wound transformer on your board inside the radio and in the general area of where the possitive ans negative plug wires solder to the board! Usually it is black with a silver band around one end. If you clip it on one end or remove it this will restore your radios power. CAUTION:: When doing this ALWAYS use a dual fuse power cord . This will prevent this from happening again by blowing the fuse first. Doing this procedure will remove your thermal protection to the radio thus making it wide open to being fried for good if it ever gets hooked up backwards again. This is my reasoning for the dual fused power cord. Good luck!
