T12.5L 250V fuse for carver amp

T12.5L 250V fuse has blown, my fault, what is the value to replace this fuse and what is the T1, a part number or some thing I can't find a 12.5 amp fuse, glass 5mm x 20mm so I'm thinking it's a 2.5 and T1 is just a part number or something. logo on the fuse is a W with an x on top center with a circle around the x
W the whole thing.

Yes T1 stands for fuse One. The fuse is a 2.5amp at 250volts. The only thing you need to work out now is if it's a Quick blow or Slow Blow type. Sometimes you can still see the remains of the wire that's gone on the old one. This is your best clue to it. If it is a single wire it's a Quick, if you can see a coil then it's the other.
If in doubt use a Quick blow type.

Do i have a blown fuse if I am checking 2 small fuses that are on a circuit board. one is 1.6 amp 250v and the other is 160ma 250v and the 160ma fuse is the one testing 1.4 and the 1.6 amp fuse is tes


They have a restorside, a bit , that's why you have fast and slow fuses. But if they were dead, then the resistant would be infinite, so
no problems with both fuses.

Where can I get a Type T 6.3 AH 250V fuse for a K3000FX 300Watt Keyboard Amp?


Start with a 5 amp fuse and see if that holds. If it doesn't go to 10 amp. If that pops, you will have a power supply or amplifier fault. Good luck

I am not sure what fuse to put in it, when I got it it had a 500 MA Ceramic 5x 20 250v Fuse blown; but when I replace it with the same it automatically pops. The board of the power supply has written on it...


On the body of the fuse or on the circuit board there will be a suffix T or F next to the value.
T stands for Time delay or slowblow. If its marked F it means fast acting fuse.
Now after replacing the correct fuse if it still pops you have a short circuit and it is drawing high current, so the popping. Get professional help or you will do further damage.

The required fuse is 1.6 A / 125V an is blown, I wen to radio shack and bought a 1.6A/250V and it has blown 2 already, what can I do or check to fix it? This is a Sony Sub-woofer model sa-wmsp1.


Hi,
If power transformer T1 got shorted or its output voltage got shorted for some reason, fuse will blow in Sony SA-WMSP1 active subwoofer.
Check power transformer, D401 bridge rectifiers and IC301 power amplifier out chip. Any of them is bad.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Fuse


If you look closely a the metal ends of the fuse you`ll see values written on it i.e;250v.3A in that case 3amps. Use a magnifier that makes it easier. the number before the"A" is the amp value.

Blown amplifier


I would guess that during the move, the speaker wires crossed and smoked one of the output amp sections. The output transistors are shorted and are causing the fuse to blow. If you can post hte model number, I'll try to get you more specifics on the parts that will need to be replaced.

Carver M-1.5t amp. blows 15 amp fuse.


First off....you didn't say if you are a tech or not. I'll make this really simple.

If you are not a seasoned tech with experience solving carver problems....you will waste tons of time and money guessing what the problem might be.

Carvers are quite the unique beast. They deliver whopping amounts of power in a small chassis. This is done by using a trick switching power supply. There can be any number of possible problems.

To properly diagnose this you will need an oscilloscope, signal generator, variac, and of course a really good quality multimeter that can test diodes and transistors.

IF and only IF you are a seasoned tech with all the above equipment, that has no experience repairing carver, then go online to ebay, find member techman777, and for around $15 you can get a nicely reprinted service manual. Troubleshooting expertise and the manual will take you foreward from there because the manual has a very thorough troubleshooting guide in it.

If you think you can fudge your way through the guide without any serious electronics knowledge, you are in for a rude shock as you will find that you are an earth man trying to read martian.

If you are just a casual fix it guy ( nothing wrong with that !!! ), I strongly suggest that you do NOT make this your first try at fixing an amp.

The value of these, in mint condition, all rebuilt is around $350- $450 on ebay all day long. if you are willing to invest that much, you can look up carver audio repair on google and send it off to them, as they are reported to do a nice job. OR....you can look me up on ebay, send it to me and I will do a nice job too, and that comes from 20+ years of repairing.

I know that this isn't much help, but carvers are very special, and require special knowledge to repair.

Best of luck.....Rob

Amplifier problem


You may have a blown channel. Check for fuses inside but I don't think that it will help. Repair if the channel is dead is not worth doing as the amps value is probably lower than repair cost.

Fuse blown


the fuse will always blow if there is a shorted component. the horizontal output transistor may be the most likely culprit, if you are not a technician, have it service by a qualified one.
