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.

15 amp fuse blows and no running lights. What's wrong?


Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.

Can a bad voltage regulator cause the main 30 amp fuse to blow?


Usually a bad regulator will only cause problems with charging...
Sounds like you've got a short somewhere in the wiring...I'd start by checking the ignition switch wiring and the connections going into the fuse box.

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!

HTR-5280 Receiver Fuse Blown


the fuse rating should be printed at the back near the fuse holder itself. If it opens the fuse again and again probably you have a circuit loading problem in the receiver...either one of the amps is failing.

Sony STR-D565 fuse continues to blow


You could have a shorted winding in the power transformer. The diodes in the power supply can be shorted. Filter capacitors can short and send power to ground which will blow the fuse.

Did you try unplugging the unit and taking the cover off and seeing if the internal fuse is blown? There maybe a fuseholder on the rear of the receiver too. It is usually black, 1/2" in diameter, with a twist off cap and the marking of the fuse rating in white. If not, you'll have to take the cover off and look for a blown internal fuse. If the fuse isn't blown, you could have a faulty on/off switch or power supply. If you replace the fuse and it blows again, then something has failed and is drawing too much current and causing the fuse to blow. It could be a bad power supply or a shorted audio output module. If that is the case, it will need to be taken to a shop to be serviced.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Blown Fuse, needs fix'n


You CAN open the unit (keep in mind that even unpluged there is still voltage runing through the system, so.... dont fry) and you will notice, if the face of the unit is towards you you will see on the left hand side a power supply board, the fuse is on that board, and it is a tube fuse, 125V 8A. Most stores do not carry the 125V version anymore, but will carry a 250V. This is okay to use where the voltage is not the main purpose of the fuse.
