    I have the same problem with my 5 amp/125 watt fuse, and it is not a blown speaker. With nothing connected to the amp, the fuse blows as soon as it is turned on. Please help.

This almost always indicates a blown speaker. If you have an ohm meter you can use that to test the impedance on your speakers. After disconnecting the speaker - touch the red lead to one connector and the black lead to the other. If it reads something other than 8ohms that speaker is blown.
If you don't have an ohm meter you can simply disconnect one speaker at a time and run that way until the fuse blows. If the fuse never blows then you've found the suspect speaker.
Sometimes blown speaker can hide by stealth. When cold everything is normal. When things start to heat up from use the failed circuit shorts and blows the fuse on your amp.

    sorry I didn't notice this. This indicates a short in the amplifier. Best case scenario there is something grounding the positive and negative outputs together. Again the ohmmeter is your friend. Check the impedance between the positive and negative terminal of each output with nothing connected. If your reading is zero you have a hard short. If the reading is not zero - making sense of the data would require professional expertise. If it is zero and you have a hard short- visually inspect the terminals looking for what is causing the short. You might need to remove the cover if there's nothing obvious outside. Most likely the terminals are shorting against the chassis due to faulty assembly or damage. If you are unable to see a simple cause for the short there is probably a failed component inside. Frequently even a novice can identify this type of failure. Look for visibly burned or melted components. If you find something that is most likely the culprit. If you're feeling adventurous try replacing like for like. Some soldering will probably be necessary.

My JVC RX-801V has a short? The 5 amp fuze burns out every time I replace it. what could be the problem?


Probably the output transistors have blown or the amplifier capacitors are dried out.

Fuses are there to protect you and the device from further damage. Repeatedly replacing a fuse without fixing the cause of why it keeps blowing in the first place isn't a wise decision.

My teac ag-680 fuse keep blowing everytime i replace it and plug the reciever up


are short in the audio output transistors may have been short since a channel 2 or maybe 4, also open resistance check carefully and change them after you put a 75w bulb in series 100w or where is the fuse clearly, you have to remove the fuse when you put the focus if all is well will turn on only a small incandescent and amplifier work well you put audio speakers and there will, if everything is well put the fuse back and ready.

The internal 1.6 amp fuse in the power supply sometimes blows on or after switch-on.If the fuse does'nt blow the amplifier appears to work as normal on low volume.


check your wiring and the speakers for shorts...also, you need to look at the back of the amp..there should be an impedance rating for the speakers..it will be in ohms...if your speakers are lower than the rating on the amp then the fuse will blow as this causes the amplifier to overload..if the amp is rated for 8 ohms and you connect 4 ohm speakers this can cause this issue

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.

Peavey 1200 Amplifier


Some of the outputs transistors is bad hence causing a bridge in circuit,thats why the fuse is blowing.Check all the outputs transistors on both channels,rectifiers and zena diodes these are the possible causes of circuit bridge when they are faulty.The fan works on AC thats why it is not affected even when the fuse is blown.Please if you have anymore challenge please send me a mail on mikewee4wee@yahoo.com
