There are lots of ways to light up a meter. Sometimes the lamp in accessible from the front of the meter, sometimes the back. Sometimes you have to remove the face off the meter itself. You can get most any replacement lamps to replace the blown one, Some solder in place, some screw in, some just clip in. If you can give me the make and model, I can give you more accurate advice.

Graeme

Old type amps or meters uses sort of back lighting only. it's either peanut type bulb or fuse like bulb. dpending on the voltagew requirement too, you may check one of the meters still lites working and see the specs of the bulb. it should no te hard to replace. it also runs on AC supply so no worry of wrong connection.

Chances are the main transistors or whatever powers channel 5 and 6 have shorted out. Fuses blow like this when there is an overload and these power types do that a lot. If it uses transistors, then a ohm meter will show them up quick. Because it will be just like you have touched the test probes together when you put them on the terminals, with the meter on the 1K setting. For the reason these parts are just acting like pieces of wire instead of doing their job.

Lights up no sound


Disconnect your subwoofer wiring from the Amplifier, and use a multi-meter to check for resistance, or an open line. The subwoofer should have resistance. If not, check the wiring inside your box. If the wiring checks out, replace the subwoofer. Also, check your RCA connection from the Head unit to the Amp.

Protect light


check speaker wire is not grounded and/or the proper impedence is followed. Those amplifiers are 2 ohm stereo stable. Know the difference.

Remove speaker wires and try amplifier.
Add 1 speaker at a time until the problem recreates itself, or test them with an ohm meter.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I have to agree with you that that component is a thermal fuse. In my country, they are readily available in most electronics/hobbyist parts store. These components are also used for small motors and therefore would also be available in some (but not all) kitchen appliances parts stores. A temporary workaround is to install an ordinary fast blow fuse.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Take a ohm meter and measure resistance from emiter to collector should have a few kilo ohm on output transistor.
If no ohm meter available , remove output transistors from circuit.
note position of transistor . you have a NPN and a PNP for each channel.
Replace fuse and power up. If fuse blows check bridge in the power supply.

80% of the time output transistor burn and blow the fuse.
before replacing output transistors check driver transistors they probably burnt also

It jus turns off an i can't figure out y?


Disconnect the speaker wires and signal cables from the amp and measure the voltage across the power and ground terminals with a multimeter.

With the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the red meter lead on the B+ terminal of the amp, the voltage should remain at or above 11 volts.

With the black lead again on the ground terminal of the amplifier and the red lead on the remote terminal of the amp, the voltage should again remain at or above 11 volts.
