Blown Fuse Every time I turn on the receiver, it blows a fuse. The fuse is towards the rear of the unit. It is a 5amp 125volt. Soon as I hit the power button the fuse blows. Any suggestions?

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.

You have to enable them and turn the volume on them up separately with the speaker config, level trim, and up/down select buttons on the remote. You can also adjust the rear speaker delay time or just hit the test tone button and adjust the volume on each speaker separately as it goes through them one at a time...

I have a pro-sound 1000 which keeps blowing plug fuses Can you let me know what fuse should be in the plug as this maybe the problem


The fuse in the power plug is there to protect the cable. The fuse in the plug should be the same as the cable. For instance a 5amp cable should have a 5amp fuse. If the fuse blows all the time the cable could be faulty or there could be an overload in the power supply (perhaps the transformer has failed) that is causing the supply to draw more amps than the cable and fuse can cope with.
WARNING fitting a fuse higher than the cable rating could cause the cable to overheat and catch fire!

Sansui g5500 receiver keeps blowing fuse 5amp.


I cannot seem to find any useful information for so I'll just say this from personal experiences repairing amps/receivers. Unfortuneatley there is no good news for you.

The only reason a fuse would keep blowing is if a upstream component is bad or there is a short to ground on the circuit card. If g5500 is a tube set you may get lucky as tubes either open circuit or short circuit. My suggestion, if tube, would be to power up the unit after taking the cover off and notice if there are any tubes that light up at all, will be a quick look and a number of fuses.

BUT FIRST. BEFORE YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF ANY UNIT, UNPLUG FROM WALL AND LET IT SIT FOR 2 HOURS. This gives the unit time to discharge the large capacitors in the power supply. After you wait, then take cover off being very carefull. Notice where there are capacitors (look like miniature coke cans) or any other component, you really want to avoid touching anything, And talking about touchingif you touch a tube wash your hand real well or preferably wear gloves. The oil from our skin will cause the tube to bust because of the interaction.

Another thing you can do is follow the above procedure to remove the cover but don't turn on the power.Carefully remove all the tubes. The unit might "power on" but can't be used. This would indicate one of the tubes is bad. If it does shut-down immediately, shop time.

Pure new-age component only amps/receivers are a lot harder to diagnose as there is solder work involved to test the individual part. So this need to be done in a shop as well.

I would love to help but can't, I can only guide you a bit.

Good Luck!!!

Wont turn on


If it blows the fuse as soon as you hit the START button, it's almost certainly a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it blows a few seconds after you hit the START button, it's probably the high-voltage transformer. You'll possibly also smell a faint electrical burning smell from the rear vent after you shut if off.

If it blows the fuse as soon as it's plugged in, you probably have a shorted door switch, a shorted varistor, or an internally exposed wire shorting to the chassis, etc.

Microwave not works


WARNING: Microwave ovens are the most dangerous consumer appliance to service due to up to 5,000 V at high current inside. Even with the power off, there is a HV capacitor that can produce a lethal kick. This capacitor must be discharged before touching anything in the microwave generator circuitry. DON'T remove the cover yourself unless you fully undertand the SAFETY issues involved in working inside a microwave oven. A microwave oven is possibly THE MOST DANGEROUS common consumer product to service. About the only "easy" fix would be a blown fuse, if it keeps blowing, don't go any further unless you know what you are doing. Your likely options are a blown high voltage cap, diode, or the magnetron. Good luck(but luck has nothing to do with it ;] )
