Pyramid PS-14KX IMMEDIATELY blows fuse when turned on - (new mode
When I turn on the ps-14kx... the on switch does not light up red...but the normal light does for a few seconds then totally off and the fuse is burn out. I opened the box and looked at the mother board and I can't see any burn marks or broken legs of transistors. New to these types of machines. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. THANKS a bunch!!

First try shutting down you're system. Than turn the PS off at the rocker switch (Back of PS). Ground you're self by touching the the PS. Remove you're memory and re-seat it. Than boot the system.
Check the standby LED. See if it lights green.
Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage. Anything under 2.4 volts replace the battery. Normally the MB LED displays green. (Standby power).
This means the MB is maintaining / charging the cmos battery. If the battery can no longer maintain charge this will cause the MB LED to turn Red. Built into the mother board is a small switch. When the system is shut down the MB maintains power to the cmos. If the standby switch fails to function correctly the LED will turn Red. Lets hope the problem is the cmos battery. The internal switch can not be repaired.
The wires should just attach to the red and black terminals on the radio, strip some wire unscrew the terminals a little wrap behind, and tighten again. Good luck! Or buy some banana plugs and they will plug right in the front
Likely a bad power supply. If it uses the same PS as the L6 it's part # is adp-60cf. The PS is used in numerous vizio models including the p42. Check the output plug on the PS, pins 1 & 2 should be 16V, and 3 & 4 are ground. There is also a slo-blow fuse soldered onto the board very close to the AC in plug.
