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

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.

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 http://www.4ourhouse.co.uk/cgi-bin/home.pl - justs search for strg6653.

My Klipsch cs 500 has no sound. Blue light is on and I have tried every combination on remote to no avail. Any ideas?


There is the panel mounted 4amp fuse, and then there is a circuit mounted 6amp inline fuse as well. Mine blew due to a power surge that blew up other things in my house as well. It’s a bear to get the circuit board screws off, and some green sealant off! Step 1) I’m ordering a panel mounted fuse holder that is the same style as the 4amp fuse holder. Step 2) drill hole in panel, and install fuse holder Step 3) no need to remove old fuse (since its blown) so I’m soldering wires from new fuse holder to the fuse ends on the circuit board

No power due to thunderstorm, it's off but connected to the power source..


It can be affected due to current surge on the line, the most probable affected area is the power section of your TV. Some incidence are only fuse blown out where you can replace the fuse with a new one just be sure that the rating is the same. But others are major components like MOSFET, Thyristor, Varistor which are usually sensitive on current surge.

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.

Fuses, Switches, Circuit Breakers And Relays Most vehicles use one or more fuse panels. This one is located on the driver’s side kick panel tcca6p01.jpg

It is possible for large surges of current to pass through the electrical system of your vehicle. If this surge of current were to reach the load in the circuit, this surge could burn it out or cause severe damage to the vehicle’s electrical system. It can overload the wiring, causing the harness to get hot and melt the insulation. To protect vehicle wiring, fuses, circuit breakers and/or fusible links are typically installed into the power supply wires throughout the electrical system. These items are nothing more than a built-in weak spot in the system. When an excessive amount of current flows through a circuit it causes an increase in heat throughout the wiring. Fuses and circuit breakers are designed as the weak link in the system and will disconnect the circuit to prevent damage to the components contained within that circuit. Components are equipped with connectors so they may be replaced in situations where they were damaged due to a power surge.
The following are descriptions as to how fuses and circuit breakers protect the electrical system:
  • Fuse- A fuse is a weak link in the system designed to create an open circuit when the amperage flowing through that circuit exceeds the limits of the fuse. As the amperage increases, the conductor within the fuse heats up and eventually melts and breaks apart. This open circuit interrupts the flow of current and protects the components in the circuit.
  • Circuit Breaker- A circuit breaker is a "self-repairing" fuse. It will open the circuit in the same fashion as a fuse. The surge creates heat the same way that a fuse is affected. When the surge subsides and the circuit cools down, the circuit breaker will reset and allow current to flow through the circuit. Typically circuit breakers do not need to be replaced.
  • Fusible Link- A fusible link (fuse link or main link) is a short length of special, high temperature insulated wire that acts as a fuse. When an excessive electrical current passes through a fusible link, the thin gauge wire inside the link melts, creating an open to protect the circuit. To repair the circuit, the link must be replaced. Some newer type fusible links are housed in plug-in modules, which are simply replaced like a fuse, while older type fusible links must be cut and spliced if they melt
CAUTION
Always replace fuses, circuit breakers and fusible links with identically rated components. Under no circumstances should a protection device of higher or lower amperage rating be substituted.

I would get a fuse tester that can test fuses while still installed and powered up. It will light if the fuse is blown when applied to the two tabs that are exposed on fuses that are installed in your Ford product.

Check the fuse box under the dash on the driver's side, and check to see if there are any fuses under the hood.

If you don't have the tool, try to look for stickers or download the manual from ford.com.

1990 Plymouth laser. Where is starter relay located? I've already looked under radio panel where books say but not there.


Fuses There are a number of fuse blocks on these vehicles. The multi-purpose fuse block is located inside the passenger compartment of the vehicle, under the instrument panel, towards the left of the steering column. The dedicated fuses are located in the engine compartment at the left rear corner (if equipped with A/C) and also in front of the right strut tower. Blade type fuses are used. A blade type fuse has test taps provided to allow checking of the fuse itself, without removing it from the fuse block. A test light can be used. The fuse is okay if the test light comes ON when its one test lead is connected to the test taps (one at a time) and the other lead is grounded. Change the position of the ignition switch so the fuse circuit being tested has voltage applied to it. Fig. 1: A test light can be used to test the fuse 89576g47.gif
When a fuse is blown, there are two probable causes as follows: One is that the fuse was blown due to a flow of current exceeding its rating. The other is that it is blown due to a repeated ON/OFF current flowing through it. Which of the two causes is responsible can be easily determined by a visual check as described below:
  1. Fuse blown due to current exceeding rating: As seen in the illustration, a fuse that is blown due to an exceeding current has a section missing. If the blown fuse looks like this, do not replace the fuse with a new one hastily since a current heavy enough to blow the fuse had flowed through it. First, check the circuit for shorting and check for abnormal electrical parts. Only after the correction of such a shorting condition, the fuse is to be replaced with one of the same capacity. Never use a fuse of a larger capacity than the one blown. If such a fuse is used, electrical components or wiring can be damaged before the fuse blows in the event that an overcurrent occurs again. Fig. 2: View of a fuse blown due to overcurrent 89576g48.gif
    Fig. 3: State of a fuse blown due to thermal fatigue 89576g49.gif

  2. Fuse blown due to repeated current ON/OFF flow: The figure shows a fuse blown due to repeated current ON/OFF. Normally, this type of problem occurs after fairly long period of use and hence is less frequent than the above type. In this case, you may simply replace the fuse with a new fuse of the same capacity. Fig. 4: The lid on the fuse block in the engine compartment has the identification information 89576p40.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the fuse panel lid by unfastening the clips and pulling it up and off the panel 89576p02.jpg
    Fig. 6: Pull the suspect fuse up and out of its receptacle and check the element 89576p03.jpg

Does the Memorex MVD2040 have a fuse that can be replaced? We had a power outage in my area during a storm recently. After the power came back on, my DVD player would not turn on, as if it was not...


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.

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.

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.

Fuse location on tv


a fuse is a small glass tube about 3/4" to 1". it is located near the end of the power cord inside the tv. it is located in the power board supply circuit. there are several reason why fuse blew up. 1. sudden surge current/voltage in your area 2. shorted in either power supply or horizontal deflection circuits. when replacing fuse, be sure to change it with the same value. but if after replacement has been done and the fuse blew again, there is a short in the circuit as stated in reason no. 2. refer to a qualified service technician if you are not inclined with this job. good luck!
