Post the voltage on all of the pins for the ka7500 driver IC. Look up the datasheet for the TL494 (link below) if you don't know the pin numbering scheme.

Amp keeps blowing fuses

Blowing fuses, was caused by many thing.
Short of rectifier,resistor,elco,tube heater,tube pin, and also trafo itself (primary or secondary winding). It must check step by step.

The simple steps (see picture) are:
  1. Disconnect all connection from secondary of power trafo (PLV,PDCH,PACH and PHV).
    Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,trafo is good.
  2. Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    Connect PLV1-PLV2-PLV3 (this are Bias voltage,+/-15VDC and Backlight PCB voltage) to power trafo.Power ON the amp. If fuse is not blowing,PLV circuit is good.If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,7815/7915,resistor) in this PLV circuit.
  3. If step 2 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV circuit stay connected,connect PDCH 1-2 and PACH 1-2 to power trafo. Power ON the amp.
    If fuse is not blowing,PDCH and PACH circuit is good and all tubes heater/filaments are lights after a few seconds.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube heater pins) in this PDCH/PACH circuit.
  4. If step 3 is good,go to next step.
    Power OFF the amp. Unplug the cord.
    With PLV,PDCH,PACH circuit stay connected,connect PHV 1-2 to power trafo.
    Power ON the amp. CAUTION: HIGH VOLTAGE AREA is ON.
    If fuse is not blowing,PHV circuit is good.
    If fuse blowing,there are parts is damage (dioda,elco,tube pins) in this PHV circuit.
  • Steps had to be done sequentially from 1 to 4, not upside down.
  • If tube/heater pin is short,it can't be repair. The tube must be replacing.
  • PDCH circuit is voltage for V1-2-3-4 heater/filaments.
  • PACH circuit is voltage for V5-6-7 heater/filaments.
  • Always replace fuse with same type.

So my dog chewed up the power cord to my xbox 360 while it was plugged in. I bought a brand new power supply but when I plug it in and try to turn it on nothing happens. No lights, no nothing. Could the...

lol, did the dog have a black nose, & whiskers missing.
& a bad case of
that's a new one on me, but a funny one.
you say you bought a new power supply? was that the full thing or just part of it?
if part of it & it was the plug side, then silly question but have you checked the fuse & wall socket....
if thats all good, the next you'll wanna check the top of the capacitors inside the console, swipe your finger over them, they should be perfectly flat & not domed up in any way, if they are replace with EXACT same type, some people think" if i put a bigger size capacitor in it will stop it blowing so easy again" NOT TRUE.
look for the on board, & smell of burnning..
good look

My samsung LN37C550 led TV has no pwer & a burt smell. I took off the back & looked at the power supply board. The fuse is blown and the is a smoll component with the number CR 814 next to it on...

If you have the components part number, you can certainly order a new component. However, I suggest you approach this repair with caution, as some of the parts you may have to replace can be very small. I would only attempt replacing the part if you have experience soldering. I've replaced several hundred SMT components in my day, but it's still difficult sometimes, and I still mess up occasionally.

Good luck finding your components! The fuse should be easy, but as for the CR 814, man, I can't find anything on google. You could try

Acer Aspire 6935g suddenly died

Yes, I suspect the motherboard also; because of -> no Power On LED condition, on motherboard.

Am I to assume you did check the condition of the DC Power Jack?

Center Pin is good? No movement?
Fortunately it is a DC Power Harness, though,

Getting power at the DC Power Harness connector on motherboard; suggests bad Power MOSFET, or Power MOSFET's; in power section on motherboard.

(Section immediately surrounding the DC Power Harness connector, on motherboard. More to follow, will help explain)

Also may be bad MLCC's.

[ Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor, and is SMD/SMT. So are the Power MOSFET's.
Surface Mount Device / Surface Mount Technology, style of mounting to motherboard ]

Example using HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's,

These series of Notebook PC's, use the Fairchild Semiconductor International - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the Alpha & Omega Semiconductor Limited - AO4407 - Power MOSFET.

Looking at the second photo down view the AO4407, circled in Yellow.
To the immediate Right side of it is an MLCC.
Smaller rectangular object, with a dark wide band in the middle of it.

There is one above it, one above that one; and it is the top one; plus one to the right of the top one, and one to the right of it.
All of the same value.
[ Capacitance { uf / MicroFarad }, and Voltage - DC ]

There are also four smaller examples, (And smaller values), shown to the Bottom/Left corner of the AO4407.

See if any of these are burned/blistered.

Also use a 25 Watt solder iron, or so. You don't need a soldering station. Keep the tip cleaned. Use a damp sponge. Use Rosin core solder, I like .030, you may want to use .060. (.030 = approximately 1/32nd of an Inch. .060 = approx. 1/16th of an Inch. Diameter )

De-soldering Braid, (Solder Wick), Rosin flux paste, solder paste brush; and old toothbrush, plus Isopropyl alcohol (Rubbing alcohol), to clean residue; after de-soldering components.
(And before soldering new ones in)

Or it may be worse,

Yeah, I know............'Just a ray of sunshine'

May be that you will need a new mobo.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Example using FDS6679, and availability, and cost;

Scroll down.
$1.01 USD


AO4407 is phased out. Using one of the cross-reference examples,

78 Cents USD.

Examples of MLCC's, that are SMD/SMT.
NOT the values you need. I do not know what ones you'll need. These are 4.7uf (MicroFarad) examples at 16 Volts DC,

Definitive Technology Mythos STS SuperTower loudspeaker are a good match for a NAD M3 integrated amplifier?

For the most part, it depends on the power output of the amp and the requirement of the speakers. Its a good idea to have at least 10% more power at your amp than what your speakers require.Find out what those values are if you don't already know and that will give you a better idea

1995 850 blower moter only works for a min. then shuts off, if you re start car same thing?

that is very very vague. please check with a test light if the power is being interrupted after a min. or if blower motor is getting hot, drawing in to much amps and stopping. if getting hot or drawing in too much amps it is internal short. buy new blower motor. if power to motor is being shut off. maybe has a self reseting fuse and is being tripped by short in wire somewhere. good luck

Purchased the Samsung SMT-190DN a year ago and came into our business and our screen is black. What can we do to get it fixed? Also, once fixed, can we view more than just 7 days of memory?

This seems to happen to a lot of then Either the Inverter Board is bad or the power supply board is bad. Good luck getting it fixed. Samsung seems not to even think they made them.
I emailed all over trying to get mine fixed with no luck. Do you mean the 7 day of recording,this will record til the day you turned it off YES!! even with the screen black it records DO THIS!!!
First... On the back of the monitor look for VIDEO OUT Its down near the Camera wires
Do you have a set of VIDEO and AUDIO cables there red, white,&yellow????
Get a 19'' tv with video and audio INPUTs NOW!! with the RED cable hook it to the Monitor Video out and the other red end to the tv Video in Just the RED ONE don't worry about white or yellow.
NOW turn the Security Monitor ON , NOW the TV let them warm up The tv must be in Video1 or
Video 2 ---NOW YOU SHOULD SEE THE CAMERA's or the screen POINT the remote at the monitor to do things like menu, search. Sorry I'm not to good at explaining things THIS Should work GOOD LUCK
