Fuse ,zener diodes keep blowing.....

Hi Experts,
Hope you could help solve my problem... my ComponenJVC CA V808T ..VCD Mini Component it got no power supply, but by pressing the remote control it does open but abruply fuses blow , and zener doide as well....Why is it? I got no service manuals so I could locate the problem.... Please help me....
I am not familiar with the audio system , but I do repair TVs, ..funny....

Thanks,,,,
confused

    Hi early1234,

    Thank you so much for the wise advise....Yap obvously, I could locate the burnt parts, I did several times replacing them, but still keeps on blowing. Anyway I gonna try to buy service manuals at nearby town. I will let you inform the outcome....... More power ,,,guru.... thanks

Hey eriez

if your familiar with repairing tvs, this aint that hard. just locate the blown fuse and the zener diode. and look for scalded and burnt component parts as well....

unfortunately, there is no free service manual found on the net today for your JVC CA-V808t... however, there are lots of sites that sell them though..

any thoughts that you want ... just post it here...

Hi. My uhf band cp 200 won't power up because it was placed in a charger .Please tell me what protection diodes I need to replace, and it's proximal location. Thank You.


Chargers have higher voltage ratings than the one it charges. It also lacks the needed filters to supply the exact direct current which damaged your equipment but first check if it blows up your fuses when you connect the power supply. If it does check for Zener Diodes usually connected to the mains of the equipment to simulate the simple crowbar effect of protection. If it does not blow up your main fuse then the fuse might be in the circuit board of your base unit. Zener Diodes are cased in striped crystal that short circuits itself when applied with reverse or higher voltage rating power supplies. You will need a multimeter positioned at continuity to test this. Remove it and replace the fuse then apply power, it will light up but remember to replace the damaged part for protection.

Keeps blowing a fuse, assume it is bad radio. No fuse will solve it


Something wrong in the power circuit if the cassette cause the fuse to blow everytime. The power circuit should be fixed first then no fuse will be blown


check for short circuit component at the power circuit. Transistor or diode or zener whichever there

MAIN INPUT FUSE KEEPS BLOWING


theres a shortage in the circuit try check the rectifier diodes at primary power supply section, not dangerous to little knowledge,refer to a qualified service technician

Humminbird fishfinder keeps blowing 5v fuses .Power ok to base but as soon as you attach fishfinder fuse blows


Hi,

Most probable component that has gone bad and capable of blowing the 5V fuse would be:
  • voltage regulator IV or transistor;
  • reverse protection diode;
  • zener diode;
  • shorted capacitor.
As the 5VDC normally supplies the logic circuitry, perhaps diagnosis and tests should be focused within that area.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Furuno GPS 30 Receiver


Hi,

When the GPS unit was wired in reversed, a number of the electronic components would be damaged. However, in most units (but not all), there is a component specifically made to sacrifice itself to go dead in such event(s) other than the fuse. The is often called the reverse protection diode. This would normally be connected right after the power entry point after the fuse. In some designs, it would be after the power ON/OFF switch. Should there be no such diode, then next in line to be the most likely culprits would be capacitors, transistors, ICs, other diodes (specially zeners). If the trouble is basically limited to power supply, familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron should be sufficient to initiate diagnosis and repairs.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

B;owing fuses, wont power up, just smokes


Hi,

Try checking the reverse protection diode. This diode would normally be connected right after the power connector and would be the biggest diode inside. One way to verify if this is defective and causing the fuse to blow is even with the power switch at the OFF position, the fuse will still blow.

If on the other hand, the reverse protection diode is good and fuse will not blow when power switch is at OFF, then the short/defective component is inside. There would only be two (2) major components that can cause the fuse to blow with the power switch to ON, the final transistor and/or the audio IC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hi Domingos,
I've just changed the grilled fuse and the zener diode which was shorted. The problem is to find where they are on YOUR mobo if it's exactly the same trouble...
At least, did you find the fuse (very often the first component after power jack) ? and diodes are small red or orange glass cylinder with yellow ring.
The fuse should be conductive of course and diode should be conductive in only one direction. For both, check it with ohmmeter, in each direction for the diode (change probes of meter on poles).
If necessary, change compononents : be carefull with diode polarity because it's important (colored ring in the same direction).
I hope this will help you...
Regards

Fuse


Hi,

There are only a couple of components that could cause the fuse to blow. They are:
1. Reverse protection diode (D23)
2. filter capacitor (C123)
3. Outputs (TR14 & 15)
4. Audio Amp (IC4)
5. Zener Diodes (D22 & 19)
6. the fuse itself (it should be 2 Amps

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Cobra 29ltd classic : no rx / tx


Hi,

D23 is the reverse protection diode and it shorting is the primary reason your fuse blew. As you posted, power was applied in reverse, hence other components would also fail. Pls check:
1. D22 - 9.1V Zener Diode
2. TR23 (2SC1096) 9 Volts regulator
3. D19 - 5.1 Zener Diode
4. IC4 (TA7222) - Audio Amp
5. TR14 (2SC2029B/10) - Finals
6. TR15 (2SC2028B/20) - Driver
7. Most capacitors over 220uF (like C123, C114 & C112)

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
