    Where do you not have power, at the outlet where you plugged a whole bunch of things, which is very dangerous if you are plugging stuff that use a lot of power on to a single outlet, or are you saying you don't have any power at all everywhere in the house. If it's only in the outlet where you pluggeg the stuff that burnt the fuse, then take the outlet out and replace it with a new one. make sure ALL power is off before doing this. Also check the wires which are hooked up to that wall outlet and make sure they are not burnt from the end that's connected to the outlet. If you see that they are black with soot or melted...or maybe even broken, then cut of the bad part and strip for new wire to be exposed and reconnect to the new outlet. Also make sure you check the wires connected to the fuse box where the fuse you replaced is. Hope nothing burnt or broke inbetween the fuse box and the outlet(s). Hope this helps.

    Have a licensed electrician install a circuit breaker panel as it is no longer acceptable to have a fuse box in use.If your insurance company were to know that you still have a fuse panel they would cancel your policy. If your insurance company has asked you about the electrical wiring and you misrepresented to them as to what you have you will not have any coverage in the event of a fire

I am re-wiring an outlet in my garage that normally goes to an electric dryer. I want it to have 30 amp 120V. Do I just leave off the red wire? And don't they make a 4 hole recepticle that will accept...


Yes on the red wire. I don't know of a 4 hole receptacle but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Do you also plan to change your breaker? You'll need to disconnect the red wire and cap it.

Here's a link to some instructions on how to do your project. Good luck!

I have a projectionTV Sony mod. KP48V75. During a storm the safety power fuse blew. It was 125V 6.5A. I replaced it with 125V 6A and so far everytime I plug the TV on it blows the fuse. I have been through...


Most likely the storm did damage to the power supply board (the G board in a Sony) which is part number A-1316-388-A for your TV. However the board is no longer available..It most likely has a bad regulator and possibly rectifiers on that board that are shorted. Complete board replacement would be the best solution.

1.Check the power outlet where your TV is plugged.
Also your power panelboard for tripped off breaker.
2. If ever, your TV won't power on, then, it needs to
check your TV circuits. You can start at the power
supply IC for busted part., then to the other section,
(transceiver, audio, and video section)

Blows main fuse when power is turned on


Shorted power supply/module is most likely problem.

125 v 4 amp fuse keeps blowing


if you plugged a 125 volt tv in to a 220 volt outlet you more than likely fried alof of the componets in the tv. Putting a bigger fuse in there is only going to increase the risk of it catching on fire so i would not recomend that. you might replace the power supply and cross your fingers and hope that nothing else cooked when the 220 volts hit it

Radio shack cb radio 21-1703


OK. I do not know the exact number for the diode off hand, because I don't have the same radio in front of me. On most cb radios, this diode is usually located on the component side of the pc board, close to where the positive lead solders to the board. Most of the time when it burns, it just becomes brittle.

If you do replace it on your own. The diode is called a rectifier diode, which you can pick up at radio shack or at partsexpress.com. The part number is between 1N4001 to 1N4008. When installing be sure to observe polarity, making sure that the side with the silver band is facing the direction of the arrow.

If I can help anymore, please don't hesitate to ask.

if you have replaced the fuse already then you know how to open the back of the set . The problem is more than likely one of the diodes in the rectifer circuit . They will be the four large black components The bad one will have to be desoldered and a new one soldered in its place . It will take a small amount of technicial ability but can be done easily at home.
