Trying to understand the rating of a blown fuse inside a cheap Onyx DVD bought at Asda a year ago.Voltage is clearly legible at 250V, but no understandable (to me) current rating.Any ideas?Thanks

Look closly at both ends if not the rating should printed somewhere near the fuse holder.

Could I have a blown fuse on HTC Blu-Ray player?


you have seen first what voltage apply to your device or you have putted in without seeing nothing. if you make this you must change the voltage block in your device which is a transformer a little transformer and somme electronics, somme time when you plug in and the pins cable going in the same time a condenser inside device respond make the voltage too high to administer , this is why power go out in your room, even this have somme blown parts and you have to repair them changing, at least a fuse inside your device

The device clearly states "AC ~ 220-240v", but is it safe to use a 250v cable? We lost the original cable.


A cable rated UP TO 250v (for it's a maximum rating, not a target) will be perfectly safe with a machine operating at between 220-240v

Possible blown fuse in my sony BDP-S570 Blu ray player... how do i check the fuse and then , if need be, replace it?


If the fuse is indeed blown, check what type it is. Either a small glass tube with metal end caps, which clips into a holder on the board (standard), or it may be soldered in place (and look like a resistor) (fusible resistors operate in a similar way to fuses). Check the voltage and amperage rating of the fuse itself (for example, a 250V 1.6A). To determine whether the fuse is OK, or open-circuit, you would need a multimeter (set on the lowest range) to measure continuity of the wire inside. If the meter reads 000 (or similar), the fuse is fine. No reading - replace fuse.

Checking the fuse is the easiest and cheapest option; do this first. If the replacement fuse blows in the same manner, then it's a fault in the power supply which will require professional workshop attention - and could be expensive.

I bought a DVD player from ASDA over 12 months ago.I have never used it as I bought it for my static caravan.Recently I tried to use it and it blew the internal fuse which was replaced but immediately blew...


You have to measure where the short circuit comes from.Usualy the fault is in the power FET ( if so the IC nearby must be replaced to) or the rectifier has a short circuit.
If the FET is broken always measure the high ohmic resisters nearby for open circuit.

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.

LG DVD PLAYER THE INSIDE FUSE KEEPS BLOWING IVE BOUGHT THE SAME FUSES BUT STILL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM


1. THERE SHOULD BE A SHORT CIRCUIT SOMEWHERE
2. THE WATTAGE YOUR DVD PLAYER IS CONNECTED TO IS HIGH
3. THE FUSE RATING IS LESS THAN REQUIRED OR NEEDED
4. YOUR HOME VOLTAGE IS LOW


5. SOLUTION, TRY USE A VOLTAGE STABILIZER BETWEEN YOUR SOCKET/POWER OUTLET AND YOUR DVD UNIT.
THIS SHOULD SOLVE ISSUES RELATED TO VOLTAGE OR CURRENT.

6. CHECK THE NAME PLATE FOR YOUR LG DVD PLAYER OR MAINTENANCE MANUAL FOR APPROPRIATE FUSE RATING AND CORRECT IF WRONG.

7. CHECK FOR ANY ABLE BRIDGING OR ANY METAL (EVEN IF IT IS A STRAND) CONTACTING TWO CIRCUITS TOGETHER.

8. CHECK MAYBE THE MOTOR DRIVING THE LASER HEAD IS BAD. COULD CAUSE THE FUSE TO BLOW DUE TO EXCESSIVE CURRENT AND INABILITY TO ROTATE.

Fuse T1.6L250V


The fuse which you have used is of correct rating 250v/5A, the switching regulator of the SMPS primary section is faulty, so the fuse blows of continously
