Blows fuse when power turned on.

I bought this Phoenix Gold MX 1250 at an auction. Every time I turn the power on it blows a fuse. Sent it to Radio Shack and they couldn't fix it. Anyone got any ideas?

Ours did the same thing after about 3 months. Found out there is a thermal fuse in the red power wire in the base of the unit. It's visible after taking off the bottom cover. Just follow the red wire from where the power cord plugs in until you see a 'bump' in it covered by a clear tube. This is the fuse. We contacted Maxi-Matic and they said they have had problems with this fuse blowing and did not know the cause at the time. When it 'blows' (internally), the power circuit is opened, thus your unit will not power back on. They sent us a new one for free as ours was still under warranty. Their P/N is TF128C. We really use our unit a lot and didn't want to wait for it to arrive, so I went to Radio Shack and bought the same sized thermal fuse from them and put it in. Their P/N is 270-1322 and was less than $2. Since then we have not had any power problems. I am guessing they got a bad batch of thermal fuses from their supplier.

Something is shorting out, disconnect your battery for 30 min and remove the fuse that keeps blowing, reconnect battery WITHOUT putting the fuse in and see if it will start, if it does then you need to take your radio out and look for wiring faults..

What causes fuses to blow after there replaced.

A fuse blows when there is too much current drawn thru it. Let's say it is for the radio. If the radio is turned off and the fuse blows immediately then the power wire to the radio has a bare spot somewhere and is touching the metal of the car or the power wire is touching the negative wire. If it blows when you turn it on then the radio has a short inside or a malfunction causing it to draw too much current.
Let's say it is for the dome light. If you put the fuse in with the door closed and the dome light is set for DOOR and blows right away then the short is in the wire leading to the door switch or the switch is shorting out, letting + touch the - metal body of the car. The entire body is negative. That is why there is usually only one big thick black wire on the battery for negative. If the fuse blows when the door is opened, then the switch is probably shorting out, or the wires going to the dome light.
Generally when the fuse blows when you turn something on, then whatever you are turning on is probably junk, unless it is a stereo that draws too much power for the thickness of the wire, or the stereo is junk.

My Phoenix Gold MX 1230 12 channel amplifier 4 mode buss system keeps blowing the power fuse.

When any amp blows the fuse like this suspect an overload in either the power supply or main amp sections. Most likely caused by a sem-conductor that is acting like a piece of wire. Chances are it will be one or more transistors on the heat sink that's gone.

Fuse blows right away when powered on... either my power line fuse or my amp fuse. I have a kenwood amp atm and it doesn't blow the power line fuse so it has something to do with the phoenix gold amp....

Verify that there are no obvious shorts in the supply power to the amp. It is likely that a major short is in the amp itself therefore the fuse blows immediately. Check the internal areas of the amp for obvious signs of a short. If you are not familiar with this consult more qualified help. This may also be of help to you:

Fuse blows constantly !Power light on ? Thanks

Possible that the audio output section is short . remove speakers and fix in the fuse to test, if itt blows out the fault must be confirmed by opening of the amp and disconnection of the power output driver.If teh fuse then stays the fault is confirmed. replace and test the speakers in this section before connecting.
