Question about RCA RTD258 System

3 Answers

System won't power up

I need a new power supply circuit board. The one in the unit is fused at 3.5 amps and the board will blow that fuse instantly just plugging the unit in. I have unplugged all the connections(except power) to the board and the fuse still blows. I need a new board. The info on the board: rtd 258 smps bd mp, tm# 56104590. Made 2/17/06. No help from RCA. Any ideas? Thanks, Allen

    I have the same problem. Benimur, in answer to your questions, I have located two components that appear to be VDRs: One is mustard yellow in color and is labelled on the board as R1. The component itself has the following marking:



    TVR

    10221



    The second is black in color, is labelled R117 on the board, and has the following marking on the component:



    NTC 5.0

    0630



    As for the ICs, there are five in total: Two 8 pin, three 4 pin. They are labelled as follows:



    IC101: (Eight pin)

    DMO265R

    BG30



    IC102: (Eight pin):

    FAN7554

    VG38



    IC103: (Four pin):

    BC627

    EL817



    IC104 and IC105 are identical to IC103.



    Since I'm a novice at electronics, would you have any advice as to how I would go about troubleshooting the suspect components you have listed? Much appreciated!

Hi,

Based on your description, we can limit the fault to the power supply board and in particular to possibly 3~4 components:

  • bridge diode;
  • filter capacitor (mains);
  • regulator;
  • filter capacitor (secondary).
blown fuse indicate a short in any of these.

As Jaime867 has suggested, in the absence of a readily available replacement board, component level might be the best alternative at the moment. Having posted the most likely culprits further narrows down your troubleshooting. Could you pls post back the part number of the smaller IC either 4 or 8 pins?

Alternately, pls check for the presence of a VDR, it would look like a coin (often green in color or something else) with 2 pins. They have been known to short out also and cause fuse to blow. One possible indicator is chipped or flaked of one side or a hairline crack on top. If it is chip, there would be a silvery color on the inside.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

There seems to be a short-circuit in the rectifier or any other polarized component in the circuitry.
If you are able to fix the power supply yourself, it is worthy.
It appears that there are not service parts available for you device, the only way is to fix it to the component level.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Wy fuse keeps blowing


Fuses blown when an overload occurs. More often than not caused by a short circuited transistor in the main amp section. Possibly also on the power supply too.

Replacing a tv fuse 8A 250v with an 1/2-Amp 250v


Load fuses are rated. The ratings will be marked at the PCB, very near to the fuse holder. Do not use a fuse, which have more ampere ratting than specified. It will make things worse. If fuse burns out, as soon as the set is switched ON, be sure that there must be some shorted component/s at the power supply regulator section circuit. Check and rectify the fault first, before inserting an other fuse of same rating.

Hi i changed colour cartridge tried trial run printer died; changed fuse in plug; still no power any suggestions please


in the printer there is a power supply board.there is a same type of 3amp fuse on the power supply board.if there is any kind of overheating in the power then the fuse in the plug and fuse on the power supply board blows out.in some cases only fuse on power supply board blows out.this fuse is placed on the board for safety reasons.because in the older model printers when this short circuit problem was happening at that time whole board used to blow out.so in the new model of printer a fuse is placed on the board ,so if any overheating or any power outage or any short circuit occurs.the fuse blows out instead of whole power supply board. You just need to replace the fuse on the power supply board by disassembling the printer.the power supply board is the green color square shaped board.its the board to which your power wire of printer is connected. the fuse is available at any local electric hardware shop.its not any special kind of fuse. This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

The circuit board has a 25 Amp slow blow fuse is blown


if your circuit board has a 25 amp fuse that a lot of power, like running the compressor.. you need to have a model and serial number for the unit , there is no generic control board , each manufacture has it's own design

Rf top ac on rv keeps blownig the 3 amp fuse


The 3 amp is 12 Volt protection for the control board. If that fuse is blowing instantly, then you have a short in the 12 Volt system somewhere. More than likely it is somewhere between the Thermostat and the control unit. Check to see if you have 12V at the thermostat. If so, then disconnect the red wire from the thermostat and the red wire at the control unit. At the control unit side, use an Ohmmeter to see if you have continuity with ground. If so, that wire is the culprit. If not, reconnect the red wire and continue to the next wire. Do this until you find the wire that is shorted to ground. Of course, the ground wire will not be checked.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

RCA 5-CD Shelf System, RS2654 Fuses


Never ever replace a fuse with a bigger one, you are lucky the unit did not blow up and statrt a fire. When a fuse blows there is usually a reason.There is a short in the main power supply or the output stage. You will need to test for shorts on the main transformer, B+ rectifiers and the main filter capacitors. If that does not show any shorts, you will need to test the audio output circuits for shorts on the audio output IC's. Good Luck
