Question about Radio Communications

1 Answer

Just bought a nice looking galaxy dx44 but will not power on, is there a fuse or maybe a resistor that got blown from hooking up the power backwards?

Checked solder connections with a ohm meter but can't find a problem. Noticed the external power plug has only 2 terminals not sure if that is correct. Getting power to the 1969 final?

If power was reversed, there is a 1N4007, 1N4003, rectifiers, 2 1000 microfarad 25 WVDC capacitors, a filter choke and a common mode noise filter that are likely to have taken the brunt of it. The choke likely burned out.

2 power leads is all it needs- one positive, one negative/ground.

It should have a 2SC1969 final C1969 should be the same.

SOURCE: Just want to know where to set all the bottoms on

With out a frequency counter to tell you what freq you are transmitting on there is another way.

Turn to channel 19. mess with the switches untill you hear truckers on the highway. then you have got it.

Otherwise pick up a frequency counter on ebay.

Fuse blew when I hooked up speakers.opened up my durrabrand ht-400 and seen it caught fire a little bit.can this be fixed,and if so,how. Need help

From your photo it looks like the power transistor is blown up

5_4_2017_7_22_32_am-fqpri0tghtom2qr1ml2b2auw-4-0.jpg You may need to follow the circuit tracks and see if there are any other components blown up Maybe the resistors or capacitors
You need to ask yourself why did the speakers blow this up maybe there is a short circuit in the speakers ?

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!

Is there a diode inside a galaxy dx99v that could be blown and not letting it turn on ?

Yes there are diodes in the power supply, but it could be a fuse, resistor fuse, or a bad switch, a host of things. You need to take it to a tech unless you have schematics an a good VOM.

Full electrical power loss to everything.

Were the cables accidently hooked up backwards ? The main fuse at the fuse block may have blown. Check where your positive cable hooks at the main fuse block and there should be a fuse rated over 100 amps for the fuse block feed.

Hooked power up backwards on amp

Likely there is a reset period for an internal safety. If you can open it up you will find either something obviously burnt or it's probably O.K. A "diode" only lets power go one way. If reversed it shouldn't fail. More likely fried resistors. Too small to see if they're inside a chip, but easy to see if soldered on a circuit board. The color of the stripes on the resistor indicate it's exact type.

I accidentally hooked my battery up to my bike backwards and put a jump starter up to it backwards as well. When I started to smell the battery I realized my mistake. I hooked it up correctly and it...

May have a blown main fuse or several fuses. The larger main fuse can be located around the battery and even sometimes in the fuse panel. Hooking up the jumpers backward may have also cause electronic damage to things like the ecm, ignition modul etc. If the damage is electronic is may be major so carry it to a shop and let the shop look at it.

Picture looks like hour glass.

You're probably talking about bad convergence. Probably Convergence power board. Only $20-$30 from encompassparts. com, if still available.

Blowing fuses when power is hooked up

once you've done this, hooked up a radio backwards, you have to change the resistor...take it to a shop I only charge $18

I have sound but no tsmt,the tsmt light does comes on,no output

well that leaves 2 mor parts the transmit final and the current resistor these have straight 12 volts applied when the radio is turned on . if you look at the final it will be burnt or blown apart on the heat sink. replace them and you shoul be up and talking again.
