Question about Altec Lansing ACS 48 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Blowing Fuse I have a 2.5amp fuse in my speakers, but it keeps blowing. Not sure what could be the root of the problem. Do I need a bigger fuse? It may help to note that the country I'm in runs off a 50Hz cycle, not 60Hz. Not sure that makes a difference. The speakers were working well for over a year and then all of a sudden the fuse blew, and each new one I put it, it kept blowing them. I have other Altec speaker systems that work well and are still working. Would really like to solve this as these speakers sound fantastic!

Re: Blowing Fuse

Hi Nattydred
Depending on your country, and voltage, you may need a voltage regulator, or a Battery Backup to keep the fluctuation of energy at line. regular will be 60Hz. so is better to start on that solution first.

Why does the fuse keep blowing?

Hmmmmm. Are we talking about your internal or external fuses; Do they blow at the moment you put power on it, and what about the switch of the used voltage ?.... And was it straight away , since when you bought them; Then just send them back, Second hand?, too bad, you're ripped off .

No power. Changed the fuse mutiple times but it keeps blowing (8 fuses so far...) What could be the problem?

you have got a shortcircuit this can be caused by a bare wire earthing out on some part of your computer trace all power leads to the fuse and beyond the fuse and dust causes static electricity which causes a computer to overheat and many unforseen problems try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
hope this helps

My DELL MMS 5650 Subwoofer fuse keeps on blowing out. Any suggestions?

well you might want to see what the output on your computers sound card is if it is to high that would explain it or if you have the base set to high that would also make the fuse blow on it

My speakers simply will not turn on any more. i was playing music on them and then all of the sudden the power just will not turn on in the sub. Does this mean i blew them out? I didn't really have the...

Maybe. There should be a fuse. It will prolly look like a black knob on the back of the sub. Unscrew it and check the fuse. Replace it with a good fuse.
If it keeps blowing the fuse, the problem is likely in the speaker. If the problem is inside the sub, you may need to repair/ replace the circuit board inside the unit. If you can't get one you will have to replace the speaker as it will keep blowing fuses.

Fuse blows

once the caps blow they usually take out the driver ic too.
check across your power to the amp with ohmmeter
when you find the issue it will drop to around 20 ohms in one direction.

Z-5300 blown fuse

When fuses blow theres a problem, now how it blows help you find out where the problem is, If the fuse flashes and turns black the second you turn it on or plug it in there is a massive short in the power supply, If it blows but is clear the surge was not a dead short but a overload, Either way best to run it down to the shop and get it looked at

JBL Creature 2 Blowing Fuse

There will be a short somewhere in the power supply. If you replace the fuse it will blow again. You COULD try a larger ampage fuse, but any electrician would not recommend this!

The whole system won't turn on

Go to Logitech support and check the faq's on your speakers. You must replace with the same fuse and it may be a 3amp slow blow fuse. If so replace with the same fuse or you will just keep blowing them out.

Speaker keeps blowing fuses

Sounds like a short circuit or a defect inside the circuitry that is allowing more power to flow through, thus blowing the fuse. My advice would be to dispose of these speakers for safety reasons and invest in a good quality set.
