No Power at all. Fuse T2AL is blown up

I have DRMH200SEK DVD recorder and due to high surge of current a fuse inside blew up which is a T2AL type. I have replaced with a similar fuse purchased from maplin but nothing is happening.There is no power at all.What else could have gone wrong as inside only fuse is blown up. Where can I get a T2AL F5001 fuse. I will be grateful for any advice. Thank you

Re: No Power at all. Fuse T2AL is blown up

Thanks to Bogbrush (what a name!) above for the hint to check R5107 when the STRG6653 explodes, indeed it was open circuit. I replaced that with a non-SM component since that's what I had to hand, replaced the fuse (2AT), replaced the STRG6653 and replaced the mains rectifier since this looked to have suffered even though cold checks implied it was OK. Then rewarded with a fully working DR-MH200. I had already gone through the power supply replacing any capacitors which had gone high E.S.R, several had. The 27uF 35V capacitor in the primary circuit of most JVC DVD recorders is particularly prone to failure.

Re: No Power at all. Fuse T2AL is blown up

This is a common fault - JVC seem to be poor at building power supplies. I suspect not only IC 5101 has blown but also a resistor underneath the circuit board r5107 (680 ohms 1/16Watt) .

The IC 5101 is a component listed as strg6653. You can get this from - justs search for strg6653.

I have a JVC DR-MX1SEK dvd combi recorder. It was working well when I was searching for another problem when I removed the plug from the mains socket and a blue flash came out of the recorder. I removed...

Not sure if you have resolved this but that fuse is widely available. It is a 20mm x 5mm 2 amp slow blow glass fuse. It is perfectly possible that your replacement was correct but that a separate fault in the machine is causing the fuse to blow. Remember, fuses are designed to protect things (either the machine or you) and to blow if a fault causes more current than is safe.

there is a diode or transistor that is defective. that is why the fuse keeps blew out. on visual the components looks fine but if you check the diode or transistor components they are so called open or defective.

Yes there is a fuse!

They are no longer ones that you can change yourself.

Would be best to call a service shop and get an estimate of repair for a blown fuse replacement or my thought is this storm took out the power supply.

If it's a cheep DVD player it would be better to go out and buy a new one or upgrade to the newer Blue Ray player.

Wont power up, after we had a power surge. It was connected to power strip surge protector, but has not been able to power up since. can it be a fuse problem, or more? magnavox dvd recorder mwr10d6

Apower surge can travel quicker than a surge protector can activate. And a replacement fuse may not fix your DVD. On one occasion I did replace a fuse in one of these after a power surge and the DVD/VCR did comeback to life. You may try...but the odds are against you and you will have to purchase a new one!

No Power after an electical storm

It is very likely that a fuse has blown inside the unit. If you have warranty on the device you should get the manufacturer to replace it. However if it's out of warranty and your not afraid to open up the case of a DVD player you should be able to unplug the unit. Remove the screws and then look for a small glass type fuse located on the main board of the DVD player. It will have two tin ends and a glass tube in the middle. Remove it with a small pair of pliers being careful not crush the glass tube. Replace it with the same type of fuse with the correct voltage and amperage.

No power on LCD after power outage

First, check whether it is the fuse in the home wiring that is out. You should plug something else into the outlet to see if the outlet is still functioning.
Some electronic equipment has a reset switch (fuse) on the back panel. Others have a special sequence of buttons on the panel that will act as a reset. Check your user manual to see whether your unit has such a switch or reset sequence.

I got the ch-DVD 300 no power anymore, I opened and I saw the fuse blown out,where can I get a new one? it says T2AL-250V and measures 3/4 of inch.

This is not a good solution but it is one I have used for extreme situations.
Take a single strand from an old cheap lamp cord and solder it across the ends of the fuse. This will create a new fuse of approx. 1 amp. I made a safe cross country flight in a private plane by making a temporary fuse when a new one wasn't available.

Power surge has killed my DR-MH200SEK


good day, if you already replaced the fuse and still keeps on blowing it again. you still have a short circuit somewhere within the power supply area or board.try to check if there are any other blown parts or slightly expanded shape part specially for capacitors near the power supply area .

2) If you do have multi tester and have some basic knowledge with component checking try to check the polyswitch protector, this is connected parralel to AC supply right after the fuse before going to voltage rectifier diode.

3) if it doesn't have a polyswitch protector check the polarity of your rectifier diode, maybe 1 of this 4bridged diode is shorted.
