Hi,

Most probable component that has gone bad and capable of blowing the 5V fuse would be:

  • voltage regulator IV or transistor;
  • reverse protection diode;
  • zener diode;
  • shorted capacitor.
As the 5VDC normally supplies the logic circuitry, perhaps diagnosis and tests should be focused within that area.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Keep blowing fuses on gps 21 pro


Might want to list it in another area. If its blowing fuses you know you have something wrong--if it (I presume it does) has an external unit for power the problem is there. Also be aware not all fuses are the same--a generic fuse like radio shack etc may even if correct amperage pop for no reason.

Either a incorrect fuse (not talking about wrong amperage) or a short in the unit--one or the other.

The motor keeps blowing the in line fuse whenever


Ok, Now motor use "Special" fuses, it is like a Slow Blow, as when a Motor starts up it can and does draw many many times it's rated Current... I suspect you are NOT using the correct fuses/breaker, you sold try simply upping the Fuse rating, a bit, as long as you are sure that all is well. However you may find you actually have a fault?. Motor speed controllers, can work fine "Down Low" but when it is turned up to maximum it may draw so much current that the Fuse or breaker is tripped, or blown... have you checked out your motor rating versus fuse breaker rating, you need a bit of "Headroom" as stated with a motor. it draw as a lot of current and the system has to be flexible enough to accommodate this.

Humminbird 343c will power down on its own


Hi!
If the unit shuts off on its own, firstly check your power supply. I keep seeing customers running their ssounders from a small, portable battery configuration that doesn't put out the correct voltage...mostly seen with AA size batteries being rated at 1.2 or 1.3 volts (8 batteries times 1.2 volts is only 9.6 volts).
If the power supply is not the issue then I would say the internal power circuit is suspect...this can only be repaired by a competent repair person who knows how and what they are doing. If you open the unit up, you'll not only void the warranty, you run the risk of killing the entire unit from static shock.
Best of luck in your repair!

3 amp fuse in sat nav power lead keeps blowing


possibly a spike through the ciggarette lighter plug, try putting slightly larger fuse in ( 4 or 5 amp )

temporarily and see if it blows the slightlty larger fuse. if it does it's more likely to be something wrong with the ciggarette lighter socket if it doesn't blow the fuse it's more likely to be the power supply. Ebay for another one perhaps ??
