Question about Electronics - Others
Im just wondering if a internal slow blow fuse can be fixed. if not, im goin to have to throw my Altec lansing VS3251 in the grabage.
Any internal slow-blow fuse can be replaced with one of the correct value. Fuses do seem to have a finite life, so occasionally you can just replace the blown fuse with an identical one and all will be well. However, fuses are protection devices , and it's more likely that you have a short circuit or defective component in your VS3251 that's causing it to draw too much current , and the internal fuse is blowing to prevent further damage. ie the fuse blowing is the symptom not the problem. Never replace fuses with ones of a higher current rating. Slow-blow fuses have the suffix T (for "Time Delay", and normal ones have F ( for "Fast"). With the street price of the VS3251 , a commercial repair is uneconomical
