Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

I have a digitor subwoofer (A3111) and it looks like the fuse is blown. Looks like it needs a "F1AL 250V" fuse - but when I looked for one in the shops, I couldnt find it. Do they still exist? or am i not looking hard enough... or is there an alternative?

Firstly, the fuse is just a slow blow 1 Amp short style. You should be able to get an equivalent at any electronics parts supplier (a 1.25-1.5 Amp will do as long as it is the correct physical size).

Secondly, the cause of it blowing the mains fuse is probably a short in the primary winding of the Toroidal transformer. I have now replaced the transformer in mine twice over about 4 years.

If you cannot get the original Toroidal transformer (with the correct connectors) use a 50 or 80VA 12+12V Toroidal Transformer and connect the secondary windings in series. You should be able to get one for AU$30 to AU$40.

Had a lightning strike and the receiver will no longer turn on.


First try plugging the receiver into an outlet that is known to work. If it still does not work, look at the following:

Hopefully there is a fuse on your receiver that is blown. 2 options before it needs to be repaired by a professional:

1. Look on the back for any type of fusing house. It would be labeled "Fuse" and they are commonly held in by what looks to be a flat head screw.
2. If there is no fuse on the back of the unit, it is very possible that there is an internal fuse. Open the chassis, and carefully look for a fuse. It usually is about 1/4"diameter cylinder that is about an inch long. IF you are unfamiliar with electronics, it may be wise to skip the opening of your receiver.

Lightning Strikes can do a lot of damage. Hopefully its a blown fuse.

Have Acoustimass 15 system. Subwoofer stopped working and I don't think the fuse is blown. Anyway it does not look blown.


OK - well "look" blown may not be a solid, engineering approved, check. You could take the fuse down to a local Radio Shack and have them test it. Good news is that they will probably have a replacement if you need it. OTHERWISE... Keeping the volume WAY down - you can try another speaker on that output. It doesn't really have to be a woofer, just something to verify the circuit is working. That should tell you if the pathway is good which then tells you if its the woofer or the amp/receiver.

I need to download a manual for Digitor subwoofer A2632


I recently looked at the **** Smith Electronics website for support on this product and could find none. Their search facility appears to be designed to expose more and more product for one to buy rather than to give any form of support either technical or in the form of manuals. DSE titles itself as the "Know it alls" of electronics. I'll leave it to readers to decide if they would want to deal with a company that appears to be into Selling Boxes rather than promising any kind of product support beyond under warranty replacement.

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

Blown amplifier


I would guess that during the move, the speaker wires crossed and smoked one of the output amp sections. The output transistors are shorted and are causing the fuse to blow. If you can post hte model number, I'll try to get you more specifics on the parts that will need to be replaced.
