Power connected right, pops fuses in player

I changed fuses as suggested in this forum and when I reconnect power the player pops the new fuse. Bothy constant and ignition switch power are hooked up right. Sounds internal and is it worth fixing?

HI Paul,

No one evidently wants to tell you that your Radio is shot. The circuits in the head units is not worth repairing. It is too minute and hard to do to the point it isnt worthy of attempt. I do not mean to be the harbinger of doom here. Just get a new head unit and this time dont get an Audiovox.

My Bose lifestyle 5 subwoofer appears to be performing at a significantly lower power level. Is there a fuse problem that would cause this?

Yes, a fuse problem could potentially cause a lower power output from your Bose Lifestyle 5 subwoofer. If the subwoofer is not receiving sufficient power, it may result in reduced performance. Here are some steps to check for a fuse-related issue:
  1. Locate the fuse: Refer to the user manual or documentation for your Bose Lifestyle 5 system to determine the location of the fuse in the subwoofer. It is usually located on the back of the subwoofer or inside a fuse compartment.
  2. Check the fuse visually: Inspect the fuse to see if it is blown or damaged. A blown fuse will typically have a broken filament or a discolored appearance. If you find a blown fuse, proceed to the next step.
  3. Replace the fuse: Purchase a replacement fuse that matches the specifications of the original fuse. Carefully remove the blown fuse and insert the new one in its place. Make sure to follow the correct orientation and ensure a secure connection.
  4. Test the subwoofer: After replacing the fuse, reconnect the subwoofer to power and audio sources. Turn on the system and test the subwoofer to see if the power level has improved. Listen for any changes in sound quality or volume.

Most all aftermarket radios have their own fuse next to the wiring harness plug. Depending on the brand, it may only take a few minutes to pull the radio out of it's sleeve to check for the fuse. Usually, you can pop off the trim ring to see what you are working with.

I turned the DVD player off last night and this morning it will not turn on. Any thoughts, suggestions? I do have a DVD in the player that I need to get out somehow....

it is possible that the power supply unit in the DVD has failed. You will need to open and ccheck, the fuse might be open and if a new fuse blows out then the SMPS unit is faulty.
Possible that the Sm driver IC /driver has failed. Possible also for allied components to have failed.
Or else you can change with a new unit.

We lost the cigarette ac adapter and purchased a new generic one, plugged it in and heard a popping noise. Now we can't get the dvd player powered up again. any suggestions

The end of the plug which gets inserted into the cigarette lighter/power port should unscrew. Inside is a fuse. You need to replace it with the identical size and rating of fuse. Check the unit with an ohm meter for any shorts between both conductors. If the unit is shorted toss it and get a new one. If it isn't shorted it should work with a new fuse. Let me know if you need any more help.

No power to Insignia dvd player.

Pop the top of the DVD player and check the fuse. It's located right next to the AC power plug on the inside. If the fuse is OK, replace the DVD player. Repairs cost more than a new unit. Sony has DVD players from $ 40. Any repair on any device would cost more than that. If your lucky, the unit just took a surge and blew the fuse. Hope this helps
