You can try a slow blow fuse, but more than likely there is some other issue in the unit that is drawing too much current. By no means would you want to increase the amperage of the fuse. it could cause a fire.

Samsung fp-t5084 fuse fix is the replacement fuse slow burn or fast burn?


I'm certain it uses a T12amp slow blow type. I have the exact same model, you can replace the fuse. The TV will for a while, but that fuse will blow again. You will need to replace the power supply board for a more permanent fix.

Why isn't my Logitech Z-5300 speaker system no longer turning on at all?


I have a suggestion that you can try. If the unit is no longer turning on and you're sure the electrical outlet is good (by plugging in another device) and the hand-held control panel is on, as well as the switch at the base of the subwoofer, then try replacing the fuse. The subwoofer on this model has a fuse near where the power cord enters the subwoofer. There is a slotted screwdriver slot on the fuse cover. Using a flat-head screwdriver (or your thumbnail), turn the cover about a 1/4 to a 1/2 a turn and the fuse should pop out. Keep the cover. Replace the fuse with a 4 amp, 125V (or higher) fuse that is a slow-blow fuse. There are fast blow (or fast acting) and slow blow (or slow acting) fuses. You can't replace one for the other. You should be able to find a fuse at Radio Shack. If a new fuse doesn't get your system working again, then something else is broken. Good luck.

What kind of fuses are needed for JVC HR J692U VCR? Slow blow or fast acting? What termination style 1.25 a 250 volts.


I don't know what you mean on "termination style" but I can help you on the fuse type. If you have the dead fuse look inside and see if you can see a coil of wire. If you can it's a slow blow. If you haven't got it or it looks just like a broken wire or it's gone too much, then fit a fast blow. It won't make any difference. If it blows again after a new one is fitted then it's not because it's a fast blow. It means you have a short-circuited semiconductor somewhere causing it to blow.

How do I know If the fuse that needs replaced is a "slow blow" or "fast acting" fuse?


Look at the stampin on the fuse, if it has TXXA 250V, then it is a slow blow fuse type (T = Time dealy), some may be stamped with SLO-BLO XXA 250V on it.

Receiver had blown 4A 125VAC fuse; is this a fast acting fuse or a slow blow type? Will it matter if I use a 250VAC 4A instead of a 125VAC fuse?


Yes you can use a 250 one. It's the amps that's important. On the other if you can see the remains of a coil on the original fuse then it's a slow blow.
However the fuse might have blown due to a short in the power section or audio section, so make sure you have plenty of fuses!

TV won't turn on


take the back off the tv and inspect the glass fuse off the ac power cord, it will probably be black and open, this is a common problem, it blows because the degaussing circuit works too slow, the original fuse is an 6.3 amp fuse, you need to replace it with a 6.3 amp slow blow or a 7 or 8 amp fuse to keep it from blowing, if you put an original 6.3 amp fast blow fuse in it, it will work for a while, but will blow again someday.

My old mission cyrus amplifier has blown both internal fuses after a power surge, the values of the fuses has corroded - what rating should i replace them with ? and are they slow blow or fast blow?


It is common for manufactuers to label the fuses on the circuit board as to their values. If they are not labeled there you can try contacting the manufactuer or looking in your manual. You can tell if they are slow or fast blow by the internal wire, if its thin and straight its a fast blow, if its thicker and spiraled its slow blow.

Can a internal slow blow fuse be fixed?


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
