M-Audio BX8 blows a fuse

Hi I've had a pair of BX8s for three years. One of them now blows its internal fuse when it's powered up. For a week or two before that, it was crackling slightly as though the sound was clipping. The other one is still working perfectly.

If your monitor is crackling and fizzing, that is not a fuse issue, unless the fuse you have installed is underrated. It sounds like you have a bad driver/woofer, and need to get it replaced. CLICK HERE FOR THE REPLACEMENT DRIVER for this model.

Why does the fuse keep blowing?

Hmmmmm. Are we talking about your internal or external fuses; Do they blow at the moment you put power on it, and what about the switch of the used voltage ?.... And was it straight away , since when you bought them; Then just send them back, Second hand?, too bad, you're ripped off .

2001 ford escape interior instrument cluster and rear fuse keeps blowing. Have changed it three times in a week. Works for a bit then blows again.

There is an electrical fault that causes the fuse to blow. Maybe a wire has chafed against the metal body and vibrations causes it to short out the fuse. This requires checking the wiring from the instrument cluster to the fuse box for worn insulation etc.

Cambridge sound works extreme 2.1

Fuses blow when there is an overload. This is most likely caused by the main power amp part of the sub. Or it's power supply. What's happening is that some part is acting like a piece of wire instead of doing it's job.
It's possible that the previous repair people fitted the wrong part and if you are using it at say high levels it goes again. It could also be caused by faulty speaker wiring. So check that after replacing the faulty part. It might be visibly burnt or broken if you look inside it.

I've got a Adam A5X studio monitor. the problem is that fuse blows after about 15 sec. it works but you can hear background hum and the transformer gets very hot in 15 sec. then fuse blows. i wonder...

Transformers RARELY fail. It is likely that either one side of the amplifier has shorted or there is a failure in the rectifier/filter circuit of the power supply. Take it for repair unless you are adept at electronic repair. Do NOT continue to replace the fuse as you MAY cause futher damage. Use a 25 or 40 watt lamp in series with your power cord to limit current while troubleshooting.

I have a fuse problem it went out after 2 years and put a new 1 in it lasted 5 mo. anouther new 1 it lasted three weeks. Can i put in a stronger fuse?

If a fuse is blowing, it's usually caused by a short somewhere and is intended to prevent further damage or a potential electrical fire. It's generally safe to use a fuse rated for ~10% more current, but if it still blows out, I'd recommend taking it in for service. A higher rated fuse will have no bearing on the normal operation of the TV.

You'll have to remove the cabinet cover to access the fuse. It is in line with the power cord. 20 Amp, slow blow.

One of the screws on the back of the cover may be a security TORX (the kind with a pin in the center of the head). Usually, if you tap on it with a hammer, you can remove it with a pair ov Vise-Grip pliers.
