SOURCE: NO POWER, Yes blown fuse.

Was this the 220 ohm in the power supply??? and if the 5 amp blew right away then it probably took out the bridge rectifyer with the power surge that comes alog with hurricane damage to the power lines as I used to live in florida and repaired lots of sets damaged from storms!! After you check the bridge rectifyers I would start looking to find any other shorts. First measure across the ac line with the fuse replaced but not plugedf in . If its shorted check what I mentioned before if its good after you replace the shorted parts you maybe in luck. need more assistance go to sams photo facts download a schematic and we will trouble shoot this together if you post it here so i can look at it. good luck

SOURCE: Goodmans LD3250HD LCD TV: No

You can buy a replacement PSU from HERE.

But these try these troubleshooters first:

1. Try this - hold the menu button down for 10 seconds. TV should power up; you will have to turn off front panel buttons on menu.

2. You can also try plugging in the TV through the USB on its panel to a computer or USB charger, and it may work. However, this is only a temporary solution.

3. Powering down the set or putting it in standby may have allowed the power supply to cool. Weak capacitors often go out of spec when they cool, thus preventing a section of the power supply from firing up properly again. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use the hairdryer, but don't hold the dryer too close (say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Resetting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

4. A circuit board may crack about some of the larger components mounted on it. You can inspect the PCB's for fractures, and then repair them. It may also be poor soldering that has failed. I would be checking for these things first.

5. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board or just change the faulty capacitors. You will have to open the back panel and take a look. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a sample pic (not same model):
e209190.jpg
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you, or get a qualified technician. Warning: If you do not have a background in electronics repair, or are inexperienced, get a qualified technician to do it for you.

REMEMBER there are very dangerous voltages inside a TV that can KILL. Be sure to work SAFE when dealing with electricity. DISCONNECT THE POWER BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

My wh statesman keeps blowing engine/bcm fuse. using bigger fuse allows it to start but blows again shortly after


Don't keep trying bigger fuses. It will only cause more problems, like burnt wiring that will need replacing, or starting a fire.
You either have an electrical component that is shorted and causing too much power draw, or you have some open wire that is shorting to ground by touching metal.
You or an electrician will need to look at a wiring diagram to see what all is on that circuit that is blowing the fuse. Then start taking one part of it loose at a time to try and isolate the problem. See any smoke or smell plastic burning when the fuse pops?

It all depends which fuse is it the plug fuse as used in the UK or the internal fuse? If it the internal fuse either the magnatron has gone S/C or the high voltage rectifiers have gone S/C and will need replacing the the indentical components

Odometer cluster fuse keeps blowing


If it's the GAUGE fuse than there are a lot of components on this wire. The smarter thing to do before you replaced all that stuff would have been to unplug those items, install a fuse, turn the key on and see if it blows. Obviously at this point we know it would have. Since the rear defrost, DRL, audio alarm, ac relay, 4x4 system and keyless entry module shape this fuse it may be a good idea to to get yourself a good wiring diagram and a good volt meter to track down the shorted component or wire.

Is there any fuse inside the KH624 power supply?


Typically, there are no fuses inside these devices. You'd think that there should be - but it's not the case. Most of the time, power supply units (PSU) begin to overheat and ever so slowly die. Replacement PSU have dropped in price - like everything else. Your best bet is to replace it and maintain it from here on in to ensure a long life.

PSU's overheat and fail because of dust. Lots of it. The fan inside blows air into the PSU case to help keep the component cool. Unfortunately, dust gets blown in at the same time - and slowly builds up on all surfaces and components. The dust build up acts as a thermal insulator that prevents the air from removing the heat. A PC on the floor will have a great deal more dust build up inside than if it were on a desk top. Oh, and the fans in the PC (not just the PSU) blow dust all over the motherboard components and expansion cards inside it, too. The most expensive components are the CPU and video card(s).

Move the PC to the desk and regularly clean the components that have fans on or near them ideally with a vacuum or if unable to vacuum - blow out with compressed air to keep them running reliably.

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.

Power supply dies in the middle of the run.


It is obviously dying or incapable of supplying a sufficient flow of power to the system. Before it blows, you will want to buy yourself a new one to prevent losing other components within your system. You can find some very good power supplies at this website. Once the page loads, search for: PC Power & Cooling. After the page loads, select, "PC Power & Cooling" on the left under the category, "Manufacturer."

Make sure you find one that exceeds your power needs by about 100-150 Watts. Yes, they are expensive, but you DO NOT want to skimp on the most important aspect of the computer, power. Wen it comes to power, you get what you pay for. Almost all cheap power-supplies will last you one year and then blow. And once they blow, they frequently take other components with them. Components such as motherboards, memory, CPUs, and Video Cards.

The reason behind picking a PC Power & Cooling PSU is rather self-explanatory. Firstly, they have the highest efficiency rating of any single-rail PSU. Secondly the PSU tends to run cool, thus increasing its life span. Thirdly, they are reliable and provide a steady flow of power. All of this equates to a great power supply which will support your system for a long time.

Let me know if I can assist you further or if I need to explain anything mentioned above in more detail.

Can a internal slow blow fuse be fixed?


Any internal slow-blow fuse can be replaced with one of the correct value. Fuses do seem to have a finite life, so occasionally you can just replace the blown fuse  with an identical one and all will be well. However, fuses are protection devices , and it's more likely that you have a  short circuit or  defective component in your VS3251 that's causing it to draw too much current , and the internal fuse is blowing to prevent further damage. ie the fuse blowing is the symptom not the problem. Never replace fuses with ones of a higher current rating. Slow-blow fuses have the suffix T (for "Time Delay", and normal ones have F ( for "Fast"). With the street price of the VS3251 , a commercial repair is uneconomical

Have a kenwood kac849 600w amp keep blowing fuse on amp as soon as power is too it power wire got wet and now this can i bypass that fuse some how


It would be very dangerous to bypass a fuse. If it keeps blowing, bypassing the fuse will only create lots of internal damage and maybe a fire as well. The fuse is blowing for a reason, the amplifier is not going to somehow start working because you bypassed the fuse. You also need to stop trying to turn it on, every time it blows the fuse, it keeps stressing the components inside. You have a shorted power supply, probably water damage as well since the power wire got wet.

I repair car amplifiers for a living, and can tell you with all honesty that bypassing the fuse would be a terrible mistake to make, the amplifier would end up being un-fixable with holes burned right into the board.

Please, just take it in for service or get a new amplifier. That is the only sensible thing to do. The amp will not start working bypassing the fuse, it will only start smoking.

B;owing fuses, wont power up, just smokes


Hi,

Try checking the reverse protection diode. This diode would normally be connected right after the power connector and would be the biggest diode inside. One way to verify if this is defective and causing the fuse to blow is even with the power switch at the OFF position, the fuse will still blow.

If on the other hand, the reverse protection diode is good and fuse will not blow when power switch is at OFF, then the short/defective component is inside. There would only be two (2) major components that can cause the fuse to blow with the power switch to ON, the final transistor and/or the audio IC.

Hope 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.

Accidentally plugged the 110V to a 220V


Hi,
you,ll have blown the PSU.
there maybe an internal fuse, located in the PSU. but if smoke was bellowing out, i,d say it went straight past the fuse.
New PSUs the best bet.
