SOURCE: kawasai z750, keeps blowing main fuse


To my knowledge, there are no onboard electrical/electronic components capable of shorting and blowing the fuse with out blowing any of the secondary fuse. The main fuse could possibly blow due to a short in the wiring or an exposed/frayed wire touching the body. The three most likely areas would be:

  • wire harness leading to the regulator;
  • wire harness leading to the fusebox; and/or
  • wire harness leading to the ignition switch.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 1210 internal fuse keeps blowing

First and foremost, the tonearm has absolutely NOTHING to do with the power. They are not connected in anyway. The only thing that links them is the tonearm is grounded to the chassis of the turntable. Nothing else. However, this will not cause this sort of problem.

Turn on your turntable without using the POP-UP light - keep the light down/off. Try it then. If it works, than the issue is there. If you still have the same problem, then the issue is something on the main drive circuit board which is overheating, and the fuse is going to protect the unit from any damage. Take a look at R213 - see if it's burnt around it's area. If so, more than likely this is the culprit.

This is not an easy diagnosis. Highly recommend taking it to a service center.

SOURCE: Panasonic nn-p295 blows buss fuse when turned on for cooking

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer. But this is likely an inverter model, so it wouldn't have one and would be some other component in the inverter I'd say.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Check your blower motor itself, look for power going into it.

Also check your blower motor resistor.

most power supply units will fit
you should check all the electrical connections before you make a decision and make sure they are the same as as the ones that you will need to run your computer also
check the measurments inside the frame to make absolutely sure it will fit
hope this helps

Where can i find an acer psu model number fsp2535gba

You can use other PSU's as well, providing they have the right connections and are equal to or above the wattage you need. And providing it fits!

Anyway I think this may be a compatible replacement part, but check all the details to be sure they match with yours:

First replace the PSU, (it might be badly damaged - not only the fuse) and if you were unlucky enough to blow the chipset too it won't start even after the PSU replacement.

Take your current power-supply to any computer-store, so that they can match its size, and its connectors (both the number of connectors and the shape of the connectors), with a replacement power-supply unit.

Updrading power supply of Dell Optiplex GX280 Small Desktop.

Hi there.
No, 400Watts will not affect your computers performance, it just means that you will be able to add more peripheral devices to your PC, for example, an external or internal hard drive or more USB devices.
Make sure you get the power supply from Dell themselves as you will find it difficult to install a standard PSU (power supply unit).

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Im assuming this is a desktop computer.
I ask this, because sometimes people post in the wrong categorys.
If your getting no power, Then the first steps, are as you,ve already done, checked the plugs main fuse. Should be rated 3-5 Amp.
The next suspect item, would be your computers PSU ( power supply Unit ) This can only really be checked with a multi-meter, if you take the side/top panel off. ( whichever Applies ) Towercase Or desktop.
You have an internal Power supply unit. This provides power to Motherboard, and internal hardware Devices. Hard-Drive CD Rom And any other internal devices. You,ll see a Square Box to the rear of The Computer, with several cables coming out from it. The Majority will Have 1 Red @ 5volt 2 Blacks Earth or ground And 1 yellow Cable @ 12 volts.
There may be an internal quick blow fuse in the PSU Itself.
To attempt to remedy your issue, i,d suggest to remove ( unpowered switched Off ) the 4 Pin Connector To the Hard-drive And the CD/DVD rom. These 4 pin Plastic Plugs are refered to As molex Connectors. simply pull the plugs, towards the rear of the Computer. HD/DVD Drives Only. Then try to power On Computer. this will eliminate, a possible hard-drive failure or seizure, and also allow the PSU extra power for booting up the Computer.
Other probabilitys are broken or faulty, power/On case switch, but quite rare.
If you follow these steps, and get some form of life from the Computer. Please let me know, and i will guide you further.

Suitable psu for packard bell istart 1359

Unfortunately, no. See this link for a picture of your supply: . It's considerably longer and narrower than a standard ATC power supply. This is typical of Packard Bell, e-Machines and many others.

Hope this helps!
