From the user manual, "The power mains (AC) fuse and fuse holder are under the IEC (power cord) socket. Replacement fuses must be of the same rating (6.3A, 250V) and size as originally equipped. To replace a blown fuse, remove the IEC power cord. Pull out the fuse holder and find the spare fuse inside."
Check the back of your Passport, right above where the plug goes; you can see where the fuse goes and it also lists the type of fuse, "T10AH 250W" maybe you'll be able to find the spare fuse that should be inside.

Replace the fuse only once. If it blows right away, then servicing is required as continued replacement will likely damage more inside.

Most of thes have a fuse holder that is a part of the input power socket. There is a little rectangular panel adjacent where the cord connects with a tab that you gently pry out and carries a small fuse. Replace the fuse and re-install the carrier.

These units are very hard to work on due to packaging.

Fender Passport pro 500 - speaker static temporary, then goes away. Usually occurs shortly after turning system on.


If this system is still under warranty get it to a warranty service center. This is an early stage symptom of failure with the Power Amp IC. Fender has a good warranty policy on this stuff - 1 to 3 years

If not under warranty you may want to wait until it the problem is more persistent - easier for a tech to fix - unless it IS every time right now. A good tech can identify the issue quickly once "on the bench". My 'gut' feeling is the Power Amp IC when the system is first energizing to full stable power.

One of my Fender Passport 500 speakers has started to crackle sometimes, particularly when the song has a lot of base. What could be causing this? Would a regulator help?


You have probably blown the speaker... swap left and right to verify it is the speaker... These speakers are NOT too well suited for bass... They typically have low impedance speakers in series. You run a risk of popping the amp running with a blown speaker. You MAY have to replace all the speakers in the defective cabinet. ALL the speakers must be identical. The Passport 250 uses four 2 ohm speakers in series... not sure about the 500. It may have two 8 ohm in parallel. Do not use the speaker until it is fixed... the amps are hard to repair if a defective speaker cooks them.

Could a bad cable connection make a fuse blow in my fender passport 250, or cuase any problemmwith ouput from my speakers...?


A shorted speaker cable could cause this... however, what you do is to replace the fuse BUT wire a 150 Watt lamp in series with the power input... This acts as a resetable fuse for testing. If the lamp stays lit, you still have a failure.

I purchased a Passport 500 less than one year ago, used it maybe 10 times and recently turned it on to use and it would not power up. No lights nothing. Checked the fuse ok. Tried a new fuse nothing. ...


Check that the power cord is seated completely. These are hard to work on and if there is a failure in it, it is unlikely you will get it restored in time. I would suggest renting a system until you get it repaired. You need rent only a powered mixer with suitable cables as your speakers should be fine. The way the Fender Passport is packaged makes them difficult to work on.

Protection light came on then went of now i get nothing when i flip the switch to on.


Likely an overload failure caused the protect light to come on, and then the fuse blew so all power is off... Do NOT replace the fuse as you will LIKELY do additional damage to components. Take unit in for repair immediately.
Note: These units are really hard to work on due to the way they are packaged.

What's the best way to connect a PC (with DJ software) to a Fender PAssport 500 PRO (I want stereo input)?


Best way is to use a 1/8 TRS (stereo) to 1/4 TRS (stereo) cable from the PC into the Stereo 1/4 inch jacks right below the RCA stereo input jacks.

TRS stands for tip-ring-sleeve which means the jacks have the extra "ring" over a mono jack.

If you have an owners manual make note that channel one has a VIP feature with a control. This feature makes channel one override the other channels and is used for voice over announcements. The manual explains how to use the threshold control to set this. It can be downloaded at Fender.com/support.
