Receiver fuse continuosly blows when replaced and powered up

I am having difficulties with my stereo receiver in which the fuse blows every time I have replaced it. I even uplug the amp in the case that this is somehow causing the overload to the fuse. I'm assuming that one of the resistors is bad or something of that nature. What do you think? Help is greatly appreciated :)

When a fuse blows it indicates that too much current is flowing. This melts the wire in the fuse.

What is actually damaged is hard to say, remove all the cables and test. If the fuse still blows take the unit in for service.

I doubt that a resistor has died, more likely something has created a direct short. It could be a power supply issue, or an issue with the amplifiers.

Ask for a quote first if it is out of Warranty.

Ir's not likely to be a resistor. Sounds like a shorted component in the power supply. A diode or bridge rectifier, or possibly a transistor or Regulator IC.

Hope that helps...

I have a Niles SW300 subwoofer that continues to blow fuses. I have replaced the fuse, but when it the power is plugged back in the fuse immediately blows.


ok, temporary cheap fix... (i mean in a ******* engineering kinda way ;-) . . . )
since your primary receiver has a sub-out RCA plug, you can hop into the local pawn shop, buy a cheap receiver and an RCA line splitter, and connect the primary sub-out to the CD or any input EXCEPT phono (resistance is different on the phono rca's). remove the plate from the sub and run the speaker wire from the "pawn stereo" directly to the speaker. replace plate on sub to keep box sealed, and adjust receivers to desired level of bass & volume.
You have spent $50 and now have a decent sounding system again.

Have a da555es stereo receiver. Fuses blow as soon as you plug it in to wall socket. Receiver is approx 10 yrs old and just started doing this. Any ideas?


If fuses blow out imediatelly its a sign that its something wrong in the imput area eg the power pcb or transformer pcb. try to see is there in its supply some electronical parts broken or some bad wire isolation.

I have my jensen in a 2006 pontiac vibe. after leaving the dome light on all night, i boosted off the car and now my stereo won't come on! checked all fuses what's wrong? it was fine before.


There is a protection fuse in the back of the radio itself, sometimes in the wire comming off the radio. alot of times when boosting a car it will receice a power spike, and blow this fuse.

What type of fuse does the sony stereo receiver model number STR-DE597 have.


The main and I think only fuse is a gma 6.3v fast blow.

DO NOT Use a slow blow fuse it will cause more damage to your receiver!!! If it opened once it will probably open again.

Odds are a set of output transistors are shorted (MP1620 and a MN2488)

Blown Fuse


It's drawing too much power. Maybe a short in an amp. Do you have any warranty left? Double check to make sure you have the right fuse. You might also try a slow blow fuse so  you can turn it off right away as soon as the fuse starts to glow to help in diagnosing.

Have a nearly 30-year old Akai stereo receiver AA-R30. Power light just stopped turning on. Opened up case and found main fuse between AC power cord and power transformer blown. When I replace the fuse,...


Look for shorted output transistors or possibly shorted rectifier diodes. An immediate fuse blowing up usually means that the power supply is the problem. Keep us posted.

My jvc receiver has blown fuse if i replace the fuse and it blows again what else could be blowing the fuse


blowing fuse only indicates that there is power surges in your area. in order to avoid blowing your fuse again. you may need to a have a surge supressor and auto voltage regulator used for your receiver and any appliance that may need it.
