Question about Durabrand 5.1 Surround Sound Computer Speakers

DURABRAND HT 3916 Surround Sound System - Fuses keep blowing immediately!!!!!

In short. My folks have had this system for aobut 2 years. I helped them install it. Worked fin up til' about 2 weeks ago. The power went out in the house for aobut a half hour. The power came on, the system started to hum. Rather loudly, then nothing. No standby light, no nothing. So I went to Radio Shack, bought (4) 250V 1.6 Amp Fuses tried all 4 and when the rocker switch was turned on to supply power, it clicked, hummed and then nothing. ALL 4 FUSES BLEW. No one seems to have answers on-line. Even up here IC's incoming, outgoing, etc. Not sure what that means. But is there another fuse you need. SOME B.S. proprietary fuse? I am just wanting to fix it for my folks! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLP!

It is most likely on of the IC's is shorted,and is letting A/C voltage reach the speakers.

First question after a power cut, followed by a device failure is, do you have a surge supressor connected to it?

The reason I say this, is because, most devices, especially the cheeper ones have poor supression, to reduce costs.

During a power cut the voltage will fall rapidly, forcing the power supply to draw more current to deliver the power required.

When the power is re-connected to a large area, i.e. a power cut, the power draw on the network will be quite large, so the network pumps more power in to compensate. This then leads to an over-voltage to the device, which is the usual killer of devices after a power cut.

A good typical example of this, is a computer, when it suddenly losses power. It usually damages the HDD.

In short, I would suppect that one of the I.C. (Integrated circuits, the little black things) has being damaged due to a power surge, as they are very sensitive to power surges.

Sorry!

I need a fuses for my durabrand home theater system and model is ht-3916. i went to radio shack and purchase a fuse 1.6 amp volt fuses and it still don't work can you please help me thank you


Do you mean it blew them again or that it didn't work and the fuse is still intact?
If it blew it again the problem is not the fuses. Instead what you have is a semi-conductor device that has developed a short and that is blowing the fuse. Check any devices in the power supply section, look for signs of damage or heat and also any devices on the heat-sink.

If the fuse did not go and it still doesn't work check the power supply only or the on-off switch.

Need to know how to make the surround sound work through regular T.V. with durabrand surround HT-3915


Your regular TV set must be able to process the surround encoding through its output to where the Durabrand is taking the sound from.

Also, if you are using the TV set on a converter, Cable Box, or Sat receiver, and you are not taking the output from the component output there will be no surround from the source.

Surround sound is critical to how it is processed and applied.
