Once the caps blow they usually take out the driver ic too.
check across your power to the amp with ohmmeter
when you find the issue it will drop to around 20 ohms in one direction.

Why isn't my Logitech Z-5300 speaker system no longer turning on at all?


I have a suggestion that you can try. If the unit is no longer turning on and you're sure the electrical outlet is good (by plugging in another device) and the hand-held control panel is on, as well as the switch at the base of the subwoofer, then try replacing the fuse. The subwoofer on this model has a fuse near where the power cord enters the subwoofer. There is a slotted screwdriver slot on the fuse cover. Using a flat-head screwdriver (or your thumbnail), turn the cover about a 1/4 to a 1/2 a turn and the fuse should pop out. Keep the cover. Replace the fuse with a 4 amp, 125V (or higher) fuse that is a slow-blow fuse. There are fast blow (or fast acting) and slow blow (or slow acting) fuses. You can't replace one for the other. You should be able to find a fuse at Radio Shack. If a new fuse doesn't get your system working again, then something else is broken. Good luck.

My DELL MMS 5650 Subwoofer fuse keeps on blowing out. Any suggestions?


well you might want to see what the output on your computers sound card is if it is to high that would explain it or if you have the base set to high that would also make the fuse blow on it

I have a logitech x-530 5.1 system that doesn't work. when i pulled the sub woofer apart, all I found was a blown fuse. What caused the fuse to blow? Also,what would be the voltage of the secondary side?


Hi there bud , The Blown Fuse could of been cause by maybe a Power Surge or a Power Trip...If this hasnt happened then it could also be due to faulty wiring in the Subwoofer itself when it was being produced.
What you can do is , take it back to the shop and have them replace it...Dont inform them that you had opened it as then they will delete your warranty...
Hope this helped bud
Happy new year

My speakers simply will not turn on any more. i was playing music on them and then all of the sudden the power just will not turn on in the sub. Does this mean i blew them out? I didn't really have the...


Maybe. There should be a fuse. It will prolly look like a black knob on the back of the sub. Unscrew it and check the fuse. Replace it with a good fuse.
If it keeps blowing the fuse, the problem is likely in the speaker. If the problem is inside the sub, you may need to repair/ replace the circuit board inside the unit. If you can't get one you will have to replace the speaker as it will keep blowing fuses.

Ada 880 blowing fuses


Good chance a shorted diode on the other end of the pcb where the big wire harness connects.
Four little 1N4001 diodes (D10 through D13 I think) and Two diode bridges (the black sqares standing off the board on four legs).

You need a meter to check them. Any one of those six could be the problem. If it's one on the 1N4001's
then you should replace them all and upgrade to 1N4007's.

I just upgraded some some parts on my ADA880 sub pcb today. Love the sound of this system no longer use it with my computer - have it hooked up to a DVD player with digital out. So basic but so awesome.

Short Circut, blows fuses instantly.


OK usually the fuse goes because the Amp's IC's are drawing too much current thus the fuse blows... either this OR the Power Supply has gone Kaput. It is possible to replace the output IC's.. as it is to fix the PSU.. But it really is a shop job..

No power in the system


Did you have to replace the fuse? Was it opened? Sometimes there is a THERMOfuse INSIDE the transformer [xfmr].Before it blows because of too much heat ,it may blow the 2a 250v external fuse.You must check the power supply [the circut attached to the fuse] input should be 120 a/c in and around [+] or [-] 12 v thru 15 v DC output. Look for filter capacitors & resistors that look like tiny cement blocks(they are thermo type fuse resistors) BE KILEFULL !!! (CAREFUL) the voltages are low but the current could be high. Could stop your heart!!

Z-5300 blown fuse


When fuses blow theres a problem, now how it blows help you find out where the problem is, If the fuse flashes and turns black the second you turn it on or plug it in there is a massive short in the power supply, If it blows but is clear the surge was not a dead short but a overload, Either way best to run it down to the shop and get it looked at

Blowing Fuse


Hi Nattydred
Depending on your country, and voltage, you may need a voltage regulator, or a Battery Backup to keep the fluctuation of energy at line. regular will be 60Hz. so is better to start on that solution first.

JBL Creature 2 Blowing Fuse


There will be a short somewhere in the power supply. If you replace the fuse it will blow again. You COULD try a larger ampage fuse, but any electrician would not recommend this!
