Question about Onkyo SKS-HT240 System

My subwoofer keeps blowing internal fuses?

The subwoofer that came with this system quit working. I opened it up and found 2 blown fuses. After replacing them, I plugged in the power cord, the sub made a brief noise, the standby/ power light came on for a second, and the two new fuses blew. Please help.

Thanks

Hi,
Please replace power amplifier chip in this sub-woofer to fix its issue, replace the chip with same number that would be written on it.
Check with local spare parts shops for power amplifier chip installed in your sub-woofer and if you have no experience working on circuit board, take the sub-woofer to local tv repair shop as they will replace it.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

It is NEVER a good idea to increase the values of fuses . Chances are you have internally damaged your amp. The next time you are faced with this problem you need to find out why your amp is blowing fuses and not keep changing the value of the fuse.

Unit does not power up. Opened unit and found fuse closest to power switch blown inside unit. Will replacing this fuse get my unit working again? If so, what would cause this fuse to blow? please help.


It is possible that the fuse was blown due to a surge and replacing it will resolve the problem, but I wouldn't expect it. Usually when the main fuse blows, the primary stage of the power supply has a problem and the replacement fuse will blow as well. This is not a cheap amp and I would suggest that it be checked by a service tech. A few quick measurements internally can determine the likely fault and should not cost too much as an estimate fee.

Please keep us posted.

The unit won't power on at all.


You can try replacing it with any 10 amp fuse just to see what happens. If a new fuse keeps blowing out then you have a shorted power amplifier inside(they consist of transistor or a single chip). These device look normal most of the time short out with any visual indication. If you desolder the power amp chips(they are mounted against an aluminum heat sink to dissipate heat) and the fuse quit blowing then it is the problem.

JBL Eon 15 Blown Fuse


These fuses are most likely 3 Amp fuses. Please note that if the replacements blow as well, that there is a problem within the amp section that will require repair.

AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse


Well, so far so good. I reinstalled the newly repaired amp and fired it up and so far, so good. Ran it through about an hour of fairly intense break-in tracks and then ran it through about 2 dozen power up and down cycles to try to get it to fail (better now than a month from now and have to fight them on backing it up).

Repeated fuse blowing generally indicates a blown power supply, or blown output stages or both. One thing to do is be sure that you have replaced the fuse with the correct type. A T stamped into the metal of the fuse near the rating, indicates sloblo or Time Lag fuse. A fast blo fuse, may work once, or more times, but will never replace a sloblo fuse in this type if unit. Good Luck, hope this info helps, don't hesitate to hit me back here for more help :)
