    I don't know what a driver IC looks like or what the power transisters look like are they the two small ones by the LEDs or is it the same size as the ones I blow up

If the power supply transistors blew out, it's possible that the output transistors have failed (shorted).

If you're going to try to repair it, there are likely 2 blown driver transistors near the driver IC (TL494). You must check them. If they're blown, the new 3205s will blow out again.

I purchased an old Realistic TRC-431 CB. When I turned it on it worked fine, the mic was keyed then the lights went dim and stayed dim. Now the lights remain dim. I checked the two output transistors...


The problem is with your power supply. There should be a big round transister on the power supply this is the power transister. It will be mounted to the power supply case. Replace this transister and try to operaste your radio again. Make sure that the power supply you use is at leat 7 amps or the radio will not operate properly and you will possibly blow the transister again.

My marantz SR 7400 suddenly shuts down or goes into protect mode shows code CKPWR5


Most likely you have a speaker short, you need to check the ohms on each speaker disconnected from receiver if they are 8 ohms they should be close to that on the meter no more than a 1 and half ohm varience to what the speaker ohms says on the back. If they are ok you need to disconnect speaker wire from receiver and check for a short in the wire by connecting ohm meter leads to ends of the speaker wire you should get no reading if the wire is good. If this is all good you have a bad output transister in your receiver, but i dout this is the case because these transisters normally short to ground and blow a fuse. Hope you solve your problem good luck

IF THE FUSE BLOWS IMMEDIATELY, THE VEHICLE HAS A SHORT IN THAT CIRCUIT. CAR WON'T RUN WITH A SHORTED ECM. CHECK THE WIRING FIRST FOR A BARE OR PINCHED WIRE.

97 Sebring blowing turn signal fuse. I believe this is a common problem. The flasher and turn signal blows the # 6 fuse ( 20A). I fixed it once by larger amps. Is there a cause and fix


sounds like you have a short in your turn signals
(tip 1) replace the fuse with a 20 amp breaker instead of a fuse if it is a intermitant short it should reset instead of going out completly
(tip 2) before you put the breaker in put a fuse back in and try to make note which direction you are trying to signal when it blows this may help you isolate the short it will at least tell you the side of the car the problem is at unless it is under the dash if it turns out to be in wires to sockets which is common problem area .chances are great all you will have to do is check light sockets and wires to them on that side of car front and back.good luck and i hope this helps

Sub is blowing fuses!! :(


The issue is most likely a short in the amp internal circutry where power is essentially flowing without resistance acrosss the short. You may or may not have sound or crackling noise as it depends on where the short is.

If you are electronically inclined, I suggest the folliowing:

- disconnect all power and open the amp up
- look for any burn marks around the circut board and parts.
- first focus in on the area where the power comes in - see if any diodes (black cylinders with stripes on them) are burnt / cracked
- next have a look at all the MOSFETS. These should be 3-legged components and will likely be mounted to the shell or heatsink. Look for any burn marks or cracks on these.
- also look for any wire or component that may be shorting other components. Generally all wires should have shielding and all components should be soldered firmly. Anything crossing other components could be a problem.

If you find any burnt/cracked components, they will need to be replaced.

Here is a sample image showing the MOSFET chips to the top and bottom on the aluminum rail.

Chirping is usually a problem in 2 areas of this unit. 1st check 3 legged regultor on the right side of the chassis, also 2 small transisters and 2 resisters near and in front of the regulator. RCA has a kit for this problem, the second is check the horizontal output transister is on a separate heat sink along side of the Flyback Transformer, it shorts and pulls down the regulator power supply.
