Question about RCA DRC200N

Fuse T1.6L250V I have a blown fuse. I replaced it with 250V, 5A and they bursted. I looked up the specs for the original fuse and looks like they are 16Amps. Is that correct ? I have a 15A fuse 250V rating. Would that work ?

Re: Fuse T1.6L250V

The fuse which you have used is of correct rating 250v/5A, the switching regulator of the SMPS primary section is faulty, so the fuse blows of continously

Possible blown fuse in my sony BDP-S570 Blu ray player... how do i check the fuse and then , if need be, replace it?

If the fuse is indeed blown, check what type it is. Either a small glass tube with metal end caps, which clips into a holder on the board (standard), or it may be soldered in place (and look like a resistor) (fusible resistors operate in a similar way to fuses). Check the voltage and amperage rating of the fuse itself (for example, a 250V 1.6A). To determine whether the fuse is OK, or open-circuit, you would need a multimeter (set on the lowest range) to measure continuity of the wire inside. If the meter reads 000 (or similar), the fuse is fine. No reading - replace fuse.

Checking the fuse is the easiest and cheapest option; do this first. If the replacement fuse blows in the same manner, then it's a fault in the power supply which will require professional workshop attention - and could be expensive.

I have a JVC DR-MX1SEK dvd combi recorder. It was working well when I was searching for another problem when I removed the plug from the mains socket and a blue flash came out of the recorder. I removed...

Not sure if you have resolved this but that fuse is widely available. It is a 20mm x 5mm 2 amp slow blow glass fuse. It is perfectly possible that your replacement was correct but that a separate fault in the machine is causing the fuse to blow. Remember, fuses are designed to protect things (either the machine or you) and to blow if a fault causes more current than is safe.

It is a T (Trage German for Slow) 500mA 250V fuse.
So you can pop into any electronic parts shop and ask for a "Slow blow 500 Milli Amp 250 volt fuse".
better yet take the old one with, and get be sure to get the same size (physical) one.

I got the ch-DVD 300 no power anymore, I opened and I saw the fuse blown out,where can I get a new one? it says T2AL-250V and measures 3/4 of inch.

This is not a good solution but it is one I have used for extreme situations.
Take a single strand from an old cheap lamp cord and solder it across the ends of the fuse. This will create a new fuse of approx. 1 amp. I made a safe cross country flight in a private plane by making a temporary fuse when a new one wasn't available.
