Question about Toshiba M665 VCR

Fuses blow afer power surge

After a power surge, the VCR blew the 1.6a main fuse. Replacement fuses blow as soon as the VCR is plugged into a power outlet.

I assume a diode and/or cap in the power supply has shorted. I have no schematic and am unable to troubleshoot the power supply or determine the value of some components. Any suggestions?

These are switch mode power supplies and very difficult to repair. If you don't find all the blown components, they just blow up again when you try it. If that model has a separate module for the supply, you can try and order a replacement, but they usually are too expensive.
What model is it? Maybe I have a junker I can take the supply from for you?

My JVC 100 watt amp blew a fuse 125v - 6.3a. is there and alternate replacement fuse?


You can buy replacement 6.3 amp fuses at Radio Shack, but in a pinch you can substitute a 6.5 amp fuse. It's only slightly higher in value, so it will still blow soon enough if there's a problem.

However, this doesn't answer the question of why the original fuse blew. Fuses very seldom "just go bad", so before you start replacing a blown one you should find out what went wrong. Check the power supply rectifier diodes and filter capacitors for shorts. They sometimes break down with age or because of power line surges. Also look for shorted output IC's or transistors. If you can't do this yourself, see if any of your friends have experience servicing or let a professional fix it.

Please, don't just stick in larger fuses (or worse, wrap foil around them) when they blow. Many times I've seen what would have been a simple repair turned into scrap that way. Hope this has helped, and thanks for using Fixya!

Hotpoint Dishwasher BF1620 blew the main fuse circuit in fuse box during mid cycle wash? Re-set main power fuse circuit but now as soon as Dishwasher switched on immediately blows main kitchen power fuse...


This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.

Panasonic plasma hdtv will not power on--no blinking LED, simply no LED. Other objects plugged into same surge protector are fine; no evidence or suggestion of a power surge.


The power supply board itself maybe the main problem inside the TV. Or, it maybe something simple like a blown fuse. Replacement fuses can be found at Radio Shack or some other electronic supply store.
If it turns out the TV keeps blowing fuses, the main power supply may need to be replaced. You can find replacements at a good price at Shopjimmy.com

My main fuse blew from a loose cable, I replaced the 100 amp fuse


Check ALL your fuses (under-hood as well as in-dash). It is not uncommon for a current surge in excess of 100 amps to blow other fuses.

Main fuse blown on CT-32G11 32" Panasonic TV, Replacement fuses continue to blow.


If the main fuse keeps blowing, check the horizontal output transistor for a shorted condition and diodes in that section as well.

Blowing Fuses


main rectifier could be shorted, main regulator could be shorted MOV surge supressor is probably shorted. MOV will be a little disc close to the power cord input (after fuse).
