SOURCE: Receiver fuse continuosly blows when replaced and powered up

When a fuse blows it indicates that too much current is flowing. This melts the wire in the fuse.

What is actually damaged is hard to say, remove all the cables and test. If the fuse still blows take the unit in for service.

I doubt that a resistor has died, more likely something has created a direct short. It could be a power supply issue, or an issue with the amplifiers.

Ask for a quote first if it is out of Warranty.

I am guessing that the ceramic resistor is close to the output transistors. I would also guess that one or more of the output transistors has shorted. This causes a high current draw that is blowing the fuse. You could also have a power supply problem. The ceramic resistor is a .22ohm dual emitter resistor that is used in the output stage. The transistors located close by are probably shorted and should be replaced. Start there and let us know what happens once the transistors and the resistor are changed.

Hello
It can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops near to you. You must have the borken belt in hand as sample. it will help you to choose the correct replacement. OK.

You cannot fix the receiver unless you are a technician with the proper tools and circuit diagrams. I would think it worth the cost of repair though.

Good Luck

PUT A BLET ON TURNTABLE FOR KEENWOOD KD-491F


The belt normally wraps around the bottom of the metal platter. Put the platter back on the turntable, and you'll see holes on opposite sides of the patter. Just pinch the belt out a little, and wrap around the motor shaft - should be a brass shaft assembly.

Rotel PReamp, Can I directly Connect my powered speakers to the output


Hi,

Based on your post, the pre-amp is doing its job. What might be the mismatch would be the powered speaker system plugged into the output of the Rotel. Depending on what the "powered speaker system" is, it might be that it is a low impedance such as those used in computers whereas the Rotel requires high impedance to be connected to its output. What could be tried is to connect a regular amp or receiver to the Rotel.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

hi due to it being lightnig strike their could be that much wrong with it that you might never find the problem.
If you are going to try and repair it then your going to need a multimeter and also get hold of the schematics so you can follow them and for any part numbers you might need.
The chances are its going to be several blown resistors because the lightning strike causing power surge so i would start looking around the board where the power lead goes into the board this would be a good place to start testing

Rotel RX-800


I have an RX 600 - which has just gone 'phut' - which is how I came today to find this website ! I once had your speaker problem but eventually tracked it down to a bad connection of the speaker cable into the rear of the Receiver. Plastic sheathing and dust was partly in the way. Strip off a bit more plastic to expose fresh bright wire, and remake secure tug-proof connection before you try anything else. Oh, and while you doing it, do the others as well !

No sound


The only fuse on you stero is for power it's a 6.3 amp 125 volt it'on the main board. I have the sam problem I found a resistor on the board that controls the power amps on the heat sink. A lab here charges 35 dollar bench charge and if you want them to fix it they will apply it to the job. I own the same model and i went to circuit city they had lot of different system on sell. So before i put that in to an old system i'll buy another one
