Re: I can't find the 16 volt P lamps for the Nakamichi...
Rick, If you look in the yellow pages under 'Electronic Equipment and Supplies- Dealers' And take 'em the old one, odds are they'll have something that will work. Radio Shack may even come close. Good Luck!

No! Unless you have read it wrong and it should be 320V. You can go higher than 250 volts but not lower. And you can go lower say to 10A and say up to 16 or 20A, though you should stay around 15A to be safe. If you do fit a 10A fuse at 250 volt and it blows straight away then it won't be the fuse that is faulty, but something inside the amp that has gone. As fitting even a 15A 250V will do the same. A 32 volt fuse in the mains section will burn out in a fraction of a second.
If you put in another request to FixYa this time saying "Nakamichi Amp (insert model number) service manual wanted". Somebody on the sight might help you.
Alternatively if you are willing to pay a small fee, I haved used "Manuals-in-PDF" and found them very good.
I don't have one here to verify, so the easiest way to determine this is to actually measure it using a volt meter. These "fuse type" bulbs are readily available from mcmelectonics.com (and others too). Follow either the wires or the traces for these bulbs on the board. Some units have 2 in series. These are either 6,8 or 12V bulbs. If memory serves me correctly, most mitsubishi units use 12V bulbs.
You will find that the display has a lamp behind it that backlights the LCD display. Changing out the lamp is usually simple enough if you are handy with screw drivers and a soldering iron. Most generally are 12 volt, meter it first if you have a multimeter, You can buy lamps to suit from Farnell electronics in most countries of the world. If you have any trouble matching types to order one, I can help you there. Happy to answer any questions you may have about your job. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa.
Anything branded Nakamichi is worth repairing in my opinion. The problem may be something quite simple, or worst case a blown output stage. First check that there are no problems with the speaker wiring or speakers. This can be done quickly by disconnecting the speaker wires and see if the unit fires up correctly. If it still shows the protection mode by blinking power light, then it will need some repair work done. If you are not versed in electronic repairs, fault-finding or soldering, then i suggest looking fpor a repair guy. Contact your local HiFi specialist retailer, They always know who you can trust to look at it for you, if not take it on themselves. Good Luck.
Unit probably uses fuse type lamps, either 8 or 12 volt filament. Remove one of the lamps and look for voltage rating on end cap. You can order these lamps from Allied Electronics or MCM Electronics online
