Main power fuse blows on my sansui g-5700 - Audio & Video Receivers

    I have a Pioneer SX203 Stereo Receiver that blows fuses as soon as power is turned on. I'm not sure what size fuse I should be using. I've been using 5 amp fuses.

My Sansui G-5700 blew a fuse (i think)...where can you find fuses for this thing?

I would check to see if the fuse is a slow blow fuse . Then I would check the power caps. that are shortly after the transformer for dead short and or the brigde rectifer or diodes for shorts . If they seem good, if it is possible to disconnect the transformer seconday leads and put a fuse in and if it still blowns it would be the transformer itself shorting out.

Where can i buy a power transformer for Sansui 3900z ?


Let me guess...you took it somewhere for repair, and they told you it had a bad transformer and they couldn't fix it (after they took your money). Sansui began life as a transformer company, and unless something really silly was done (like replacing the stock fuse, which is probably 3 or 4A with a 15A fuse of something). I might mention that 'some' units sold for various locations have a thermal fuse installed internally to the transformer. I dunno if your model has this or not. I mention all of this because often times the phrase 'it has a bad transformer' is lame techspeak for 'I don't wanna fool with this thing'. If it blows the mains fuse on power up, then the most likely fault is that it has blown power transistors at the output of the amplifier. If it 'really' has an open primary winding in the power transformer, then it may well have a thermal fuse that has opened. Gary Brown in Orono, ME has fixed a few transformers for me with this issue. Google can help you find him.

There is no sound coming out


I had a very similar problem with my Sansui G5700. Powers on, but no sound. My solution may not fix your problem, but this is what I did to solve mine. Removed the wooden cover. On the main power circuit board ( red circle on attached image) there is a safety relay that activates the speakers. Carefully remove the plastic cover ( should come off easily) spray the contacts with contact cleaner. ( do not use CRC. use a dedicated contact cleaner) Double check all your fuses. Refit the plastic relay cover. Refit the main wood cover. Power on, and hopefully it works :)...Mine has not missed a beat since.( If this didn't work, check if the relay actually switches on and off. The relay may have an open circuit and needs to be repaired/ replaced) 2f650e9f-0e26-4560-8d6b-d075d71217ee.jpg

All the lights are not working found 2 blown fuses / replaced still not working the power lite flashes red then turns to green


When a fuse blow suspect an overload. In an amp this old it will certainly be one (or more) of the main output transistors that has shorted.

My sansui 1000 receiver keeps blowing fuses


Fuses blow when there's an overload. This is often caused by the main power amp devices located on the heat sink. If they are transistors you can test them with an ohm meter. It will be just like you have put the two test probes together on the separate pins of the device.

Sansui G-5700 protection light wont go on


Try checking the speakers and connections. Those symptoms occur if there is a short. Disconnect all spkrs, turn it on and if it stays on connect one speaker at a time until it shuts off.

I am fixing a sansui rz-5000av receiver /amp. the problem is the power supply,it does not switch on. the fuse is fine, capacitors are all ok. But power does not reach connector for the standby supply to...


So you're saying ac doesn't get very far into the unit. THAT should be easy to diagnose with CARE since ac is usually passed unmodified to the fuses and power supplies, maybe through a relay. Get a digital voltmeter and find out where it disappears after getting into the unit.
