Could a bad cable connection make a fuse blow in my fender passport 250, or cuase any problemmwith ouput from my speakers...?


A shorted speaker cable could cause this... however, what you do is to replace the fuse BUT wire a 150 Watt lamp in series with the power input... This acts as a resetable fuse for testing. If the lamp stays lit, you still have a failure.

Fender passport 150 pro- Bought to uses for "Bike Nights" Plaing cd palyer in small retail parking lots. Volume is too low, when ever I try to put input level beyond halfway,,, I get...


You are in danger of popping the amp. The Fender passport 150 would be capable of covering about only a 20 foot by 20 foot area. If your area is bigger than that, you need more power and certainly bigger speakers. I would NOT recommend the larger Passport systems as the speakers are too directive for what sounds like your use... also there are reliability issues.

Repairman.com protect light is on locking out


Common problem, especially with the higher power version of this. These are very hard to work on due to the way they are packaged. Best to take it to a repair shop as either one of the amps or the power supply has failed.

Fuse blew out on my american audio after my girlfriend tripped on the chords, how do i repair it . is there a fuse or a reset button thank you


You are saying the fuse blew out and then asking if there is a fuse??? That makes no sense...

Tripping on cords could do certain things but NOT likely to blow a fuse.

Tripping on cords OFTEN breaks the plugs on the cords or the jacks in the equipment. The power input jacks from those wall transformer power supplies seem to be very vulnerable to this. They often disintegrate OR break loose from the solder on the circuit boards rendering the unit inoperable.

In future, loop the cords through handles so they don't yank the jacks if somebody yanks the cord.

Protection light came on then went of now i get nothing when i flip the switch to on.


Likely an overload failure caused the protect light to come on, and then the fuse blew so all power is off... Do NOT replace the fuse as you will LIKELY do additional damage to components. Take unit in for repair immediately.
Note: These units are really hard to work on due to the way they are packaged.

Hello...I am an owner of the Fender Passport PD-500 Sound System


Replace the fuse only once. If it blows right away, then servicing is required as continued replacement will likely damage more inside.

Most of thes have a fuse holder that is a part of the input power socket. There is a little rectangular panel adjacent where the cord connects with a tab that you gently pry out and carries a small fuse. Replace the fuse and re-install the carrier.

These units are very hard to work on due to packaging.

I have a brand new fender deluxe combo amp is the preamp in and out usable for an effects loop


Yes you could do that. The preamp output is just a BUFFERED output of the signal sent to the power amp. And the power amp input jack is BUFFERED before driving the power amp. These impedances are neither high or low being in the 1K to 3K ohm range.

The jacks for BOTH are mono jacks so noise pickup is possible if long cables are used. The external effects unit should be well grounded and operate off the same receptacle as your Fender for system safety. Use SHORT audio cables to minimize noise.

ALL the signal will pass through the effects unit when used this way... HOWEVER the internal reverb will still be in this path. You can kill this by turning the reverb control to zero on the Fender.

Power light flashing but getting nothing through the tower


If the fuse went, there probably is a failure. To avoid further damage, if you replace the fuse, put a 150 Watt lamp in series with the hot power wire. Make an adapter to do this safely.

The lamp will light instead of the fuse blowing and hitting the amp with a high current surge that could do more damage. If the lamp goes out, it is probably safe to operate.

I would recommend carrying a spare amp with you... These Passport systems are HARD to work on due to the way they are assembled.

MY Fender Passport P250 went into protect mode. I changed the FUSE at the power supply with a new fuse. Still it is in Protect mode. How to fix this


This needs to go to the repair shop. The protect mode is turned on when either the power supply has a problem or one or both power amplifiers have a problem. These are often blown components.

These units are HARD to work on. To open you have to first remove then front panel before you can remove the back panel that has the power supply and power amps/heat sinks.

Compare repairs of these units to working under an automobile dashboard!

Hint: On startup, use a series 150 wat lamp to limit current while repairing. SInce these use a switching supply operating off the input line, use an isolation transformer for personal safety.
