NEVER EVER replace a fuse and think that va fuse will blow all by itself. The fuses are there to protect the set from catching on fire incase theres a short inside the set. Now in some cases an intermittant short can work after you replace the fuse but if its burnt black or brownish, theres a short inside the set in one of the circuits. always use a 100 watt light bulb across a blown fuse if your not sure if there is a short. if there is, the light will absorb the short and glow bright. if there is no short the bulb will glow bright , then go down very dim. you could have a main power supply problem, such as shorted bridge rectifyers,shorted main b+ capacitor, Hot could be shorted, or the Vertical or audio output IC could be shorted

Techman seems to have covered it up nicely. A fuse repeatedly blowing indicates a major short in the Circuits. Get professional help. If u are a techie, or a Semi techie, you could check the Rectifier diodes and the Power Supply regulator (STR).

Why does my radio fuse keep popping when i put it in ?

If you think the car shop is at fault you should take it back and complain bitterly.

There is obviously a short circuit somewhere on that fused circuit.

I have a 2008 harley davison heritage softail Blow the ignition fuse. Got it home the next day it ran fine Went to auto parts to git fuse Came back put one in works Started it up 12 or more times...

i9ndicates that you have dead short problem in a component in the ignition system
could be a bad ground causing excessive current ( arcing) when component is moved or wiring moved
maybe an auto bike auto electrician could pinpoint the problem area
possible a voltage control problem causing excessive current through the fuse , intermittently causing it to blow
Again a bad ground in regulator problem

How do I diagnose a recurring blown fuse in a gmc acadia 2009 50 v causes car to get stuck in park, no power windows, no lights, no temperature controls, power locks

You buy the GM factory manual and then use the wiring diagrams to track down the systems the fuse supplies power to, and one by one you go through each circuit until you find the short circuit. There is no cut and dry way that works every time to find this type of an automotive electrical problem, I have been doing auto electric for 25 years and seldom does the same repair fix more than one car or truck. You can also rent the manuals for download at this site for about $40 per year, a great deal. www.alldatadiy.com

Starter fuse under the hood keeps blowing....the factory deck was replaced by a new deck...every since then the ignition fuse keeps blowing..

the new radio install is causing this if the power was taped into the starter system. rec. removing wires then try to see if you can blow your starter fuse

Accidentaly switched 12v and ground on amp

NOTHING INTERNAL BUT YOU SHOULD PUT A 30 AMP FUSE BACK IN AS SOON AS YOU CAN TO KEEP THE 20 AMP FROM POPPING THATS THE WHOLE REASON FOR THE FUSE TO KEEP THE ELECTRONICS FROM BLOWING

Blown fuse

Most likely there was a power event (surge, brownout, ect) that caused the power supply to fail in the TV causing the fuse to blow. you will need to have someone come and look at the unit and give you an estimate. If you keep putting fuses in and blowing them you could actually be causing more damage.
