The fuses blew but then smoke came out of my orion 2400.If I replace the fuses should it still work??

If you are a lucky person..maybe.. but i highly doubt it. ..Sorry.. Smoke is never a good sign when it comes from within the amplifier. Be aware i am advising according to the info you provide. Have it checked and repaired if required, it is a good amp. (find an authorized technician) dreamsystems

Dont use a larger fuse. You can damage the amp. Make sure your alternator cables and battery have good connections and plently of current available.

My mg100hdfx head shorted out and i replaced the fuse the fan also smoked and sparked when i replaced it and then i put in another and it still dont work what should i do

When the fuse blew you should NOT have replaced it without investigating the cause.

It is likely several components were damaged and probably more when you replaced just the fuse and tried it.

The unit needs to go to a shop now for refurbishment.

Blew fuse, replaced it,turned it on and fuse blew.... options?

There is something wrong inside that is causing the fuse to blow. The fuse is the first defense in protecting the rest of the TV. The internal voltage regulator could be bad which is causing the internal power adapter to send too much voltage and current to the rest of the tv. The fuse responds to current going through it than what it is rated for.

With that in mind be sure to not stick in a bigger fuse as it could cause the tv to work for a while until something else gets damaged or the tv smokes.
