Sounds like there is a shorted output transistor or two in your amp. Unless you have a DMM that can measure transistor junctions, you probably can't fix this yourself.

Whats the problem of my onkyo m-501 it has no power


unplugged with nO power cord connected,,after checking for any internal blown fuses, inspect circuit board for burnt resistors or blown caps, the resistors will appear to be laying on there sides and have multi colored bands around them look for burnt or discolored ones, blown capacitors will look like tiny barrels with lids a flat top indicates a good capacitor as any humped or bulged or rounded top would indicate blown cap , if not more than a couple you may be able to replace these with success, be careful always Unplug from power before servicing electronic componants.

PA Amplifier blows fuses


The fuse is blowing due to an overload. It's often and very likely caused by a transistor or ic that has gone short. The main culprits are the power transistors of the amp or whatever is on the big heat sink. Transistors will show the fault when you connect an ohmmeter to the terminals. It will be just like you have touched the test prods together! I don't think in your case it will be in the power supply. It's often caused by speaker cables that touch together.

My mc2105 blows fuse as soon as you turn it on. this unit has been in storage nad the owner said it worked fine he lied I think but any way can you help


The Amp module might be fried, did you plug it into a speaker with an Ohms mismatch?

If the fuse keeps blowing, you need to get it repaired by a pro.

I have a Behringer EP2000 amplifier and only one of the amplifier channels blows a fuse everytime it is turned on. What could be the problem?


A fuse blows like that because of an overload. Nine times out of 10 it will a transistor that is acting like a piece of wire. If you have a Ohm meter try the output devices. You will soon find the faulty part as it will be like you have touched the test probes together!

Behringer super x pro.the fuse keeps blowing on the ac inlet(t200 MA).a replacement unit works fine in the system.


When a fuse keeps blowing suspect an overload in either the power supply section or main amp part.
Look for burnt or damaged parts first.
The suspects in the power section are: transformer, diodes, rectifier, voltage stablizer, regulator.
In the Amp Section anything on the heat sink.

My aplifier Denon UDRA F-10 says "protect"


Blingking Light or Protect usually means that there is DC appearing in output stage and is protecting Connected Speakers.
It can be faulty Output Stage (Bad ICs/Transistors/Resistors/Capacitors) or Faulty Power Supply.

Working on These types of Problem is not user friendly at all.

Advising to take local Authorized Shop.

Take a ohm meter and measure resistance from emiter to collector should have a few kilo ohm on output transistor.
If no ohm meter available , remove output transistors from circuit.
note position of transistor . you have a NPN and a PNP for each channel.
Replace fuse and power up. If fuse blows check bridge in the power supply.

80% of the time output transistor burn and blow the fuse.
before replacing output transistors check driver transistors they probably burnt also
