Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
Fuse blow. checked bridge diode, capacitors. but question is how fuse keep blow?
If you still need help on the Carver, try replacing the three terminal device "Triac" on the chassie on the power supply side.. Opening all of the collector connections on the output transistors will allow you to power the unit up without the major load on the power supply. Check the emitter base junctions with a analog meter on the X1 scale. You will generally get a half scale reading in one direction and an open circuit in the other. A good analog meter can be had at Lowes or probably Home Depot for about $20.00. I'll check back here in a few days. If you still need help, I'll set up an email address. I can describe the power supply circuit to you as well. The power supply is where the triac is used to control the output voltage to the output transistors.

I have the same problem. Worked fine then I sold it on eBay and the guy had the problem with it. I took the amp back. Let me know if you find anything out.

Check the output transistors
