Question about JVC RX-5020VBK Receiver

1 Answer

Blows fuse The receiver blew the main fuse during normal operation and now blows any replacement. I suspect the output transitors of one of the five amps are blown. I'd like to download a service manual which is available from a number of sites but am not sure which site is best. Any recommendation as to where to obtain the service manual and how to isolate which output stage may be bad? Oh yes, the device numbers are SK B1560 and SK D2390. Thanks!

I have a Sony Dolby Digital receiver str-db940 fuse blew so I put in new one and it blew also right away, not sure what to do next

It's time to take it to an electronics tech. Something inside it has died, blowing the fuse. This isn't a do-it-yourself project.

All the lights are not working found 2 blown fuses / replaced still not working the power lite flashes red then turns to green

When a fuse blow suspect an overload. In an amp this old it will certainly be one (or more) of the main output transistors that has shorted.

SONY RECEIVER MODEL STR - D315 keeps blowing a fuse

When the main fuse blows on a sony, it is usually caused by shorted output transistors. You would have to replace these transistors before the unit will not blow the fuse and power up correctly.

My sony receiver wont power up blows the fuse

If the main fuse is blowing it is a power supply problem, or it is more than likely the audio output ic's are the issue. This is where a professional would be invaluable at this stage of the game because this a situation where cost could be a factor.

Model KLH KL-2400 Reciever keeps popping fuses. Resistor in power input ckt is color coded YellowVioletYellow Gold for 470 Ohms 5% Tol. However this resistor reads 370 Ohms. Resistor needs replacement?...

First of all a resistor color coding of Yel-Vio-Yel is 470Kohms not 470ohms. You are probably reading some stray voltage in the circuit. Yes, both NEG terminals of the speakers are common. Usually a receiver that blows the main fuse has a power suplpy problem. Check the recifier diodes for shorts. Other than that, the output transistors may be shorted.

Check those out and post the results.

Blows main fuse when power is turned on

Shorted power supply/module is most likely problem.

Amplifier keeping blowing fuse

This almost always indicates a blown speaker. If you have an ohm meter you can use that to test the impedance on your speakers. After disconnecting the speaker - touch the red lead to one connector and the black lead to the other. If it reads something other than 8ohms that speaker is blown.
If you don't have an ohm meter you can simply disconnect one speaker at a time and run that way until the fuse blows. If the fuse never blows then you've found the suspect speaker.
Sometimes blown speaker can hide by stealth. When cold everything is normal. When things start to heat up from use the failed circuit shorts and blows the fuse on your amp.

Have a nearly 30-year old Akai stereo receiver AA-R30. Power light just stopped turning on. Opened up case and found main fuse between AC power cord and power transformer blown. When I replace the fuse,...

Look for shorted output transistors or possibly shorted rectifier diodes. An immediate fuse blowing up usually means that the power supply is the problem. Keep us posted.
