If the fuse went, there probably is a failure. To avoid further damage, if you replace the fuse, put a 150 Watt lamp in series with the hot power wire. Make an adapter to do this safely.

The lamp will light instead of the fuse blowing and hitting the amp with a high current surge that could do more damage. If the lamp goes out, it is probably safe to operate.

I would recommend carrying a spare amp with you... These Passport systems are HARD to work on due to the way they are assembled.

My amp may have been left on with one speaker unplugged and is now not working. What's the likely diagnosis?


does the speaker still work? use a 9 volt battery and do a test thump to see if the horn and woofer still work...when the power amps on these units fail most of the time they shut down.

My 800 watt powered mixer was working fine until a keyboardist plugged in his keys and amp. The sound would fade out. When it was unplugged, it worked fine. Later that even, another DJ with an 800-watt...


All sound equipment has to operate without overloads in any given place. The power source should always be examined at commercial gigs and worked out with other performers along with management. The only fix is to do these checks up front and make safe arrangements.

I have a Yamaha dgx 330. I was playing it at my gig when all of a sudden my sustain pedal stopped working. It was working fine right before that. I could only play fast songs after that. I also have a Dgx...


Two possibilities come to mind.

These footswitches DO go bad and require servicing (east to work on) either cable breaks someplace due to vibration and flexure or the contacts get dirty inside... simple to disassemble and clean.

The other thing is polarity. I know you said it isn't polarity, however should you be holding or not holding it down and the power glitches, the keyboard may read a NEW polarity. Often the power can be very "dirty" at venues. Also sometimes the power cord connector can become marginal causing momentary power loss... USUALLY you would notice this happening.

Power light comes on but nothing else works.


There is a possibility that your plug on the adapter is the wrong polarity. See if the polarity is marked on your mixer by the power adapter jack.

When i plug it in the power light just flashes green... i get nothing now


This is likely a power supply failure. These are a pain to work on during repair due to packaing arrangement.

My Fender Passport stays in protect mode.


I have one that has done the same. It is the next smaller size. The power supply fried a toroidal inductor in mine. Frankly, these things are a major pain to work on. You have to usually remove the front panel before you can remove the back power supply and power amp section.

If you have warranty coverage USE IT !!!

The protect feature in mine monitors the power supply load and shuts down the supply if it senses overload. They are hard to work on as you have to bypass the protect to troubleshoot and get to the root cause.

Use the old light bulb in series trick to limit the current.

Older Cr 1604, powers up but no output, suddenly after gig.


The power supply is located in that area on one side. It is possible that one of the output op-amp ICs has failed. There are a number of 4558 ICs used as output buffers for this unit. Without seeing the unit and testing parts of it, I can't say for sure. These are not the easiest to work on as they are really compact. Where are you located? I may be able to suggest a service center in your area. The repair cost should not be too bad. The parts are cheap and readily available. Please update this with your location. Thanks, Dan

I have a variax 700 modelling acoustic guitar, On occations it just dies ie,no power or sound. I disconnect everything plug it all back up and still nothing. If I leave disconected for an hour or so...


I don't have a Variax but it sounds like an IC (integrated circuit) inside the guitar is getting hot and until it cools down, it does not function properly. Try the Line 6 website to find the nearest repair center. Good Luck!

No sound from speakers


Page 8 of the owners manual explains this and suggests that if their procedure fails to take it into an authorized Fender dealer for service. The manual is dowloadable at Fender.com/support.
