Blown Fuse I forgot to change the voltage before I plugged it in. What type of fuse do I get? How do I change the fuse? Can I do it myself or should I take it to a shop? Thanks... Jo

One of my turntables target light was pulsing, so STUPID me did what I read on someones comment that the voltage should be switched to 110 V instead of 220V. DON'T EVER TRY THIS !!! after that switch all i heard when powered was a BOOM. I thought that the whole tt was dead. Fortunately only one fuse was burned so I had it replaced and the turntable is fine now.
I was so close to ruin the transformer.

Cheers !

The fuses for this model are located underneath the turntable platter. You can replace this yourself, however, please be sure to disconnect the unit from it's power source before proceeding. You will have to remove the metal turntable platter, exposing a black protective cover. Remove the cover, and you'll see the main PC Board. There are 2 fuses on the lower left side. Pull the fuses and take them to your local electronics store, or order online @ IF your unit does NOT have any fuses, then your transformer is damaged, and will need to be replaced by a qualified technician. Also, the fuses are only meant to circumvent small changes in electrical current. Many times, these voltage surges, will fry the fuses and the transformer. So if after you replace the fuses, it still doesn't power up, you will need to also have the transformer replaced. Good Luck!

Could I have a blown fuse on HTC Blu-Ray player?

you have seen first what voltage apply to your device or you have putted in without seeing nothing. if you make this you must change the voltage block in your device which is a transformer a little transformer and somme electronics, somme time when you plug in and the pins cable going in the same time a condenser inside device respond make the voltage too high to administer , this is why power go out in your room, even this have somme blown parts and you have to repair them changing, at least a fuse inside your device

Broken nc10 charger

Depending on what type of plug it is you may be able to change the fuse.
If the fuse has blown then you really need to know why before plugging it back in to the mains. The charger may have a broken wire in the lead that plugs in to the laptop. Usually it happens right near the plug where it gets bent and twisted. It could also be the internal fuse inside the charger box.

If you can't get it tested properly then a new one is your best bet. They are quite cheap on Ebay. Just look for the one for your make and model number and check to make sure the voltage on your chargers label is the same, it's output voltage is probably 19 volts. The voltage must be the same, NOT lower or higher.
Then have a look at the label for the current which is in Amps, something like 3.15Amps. You can buy one with higher current than the one you have but NOT lower than the label says.

Possible blown fuse on Novation Nio audio interface. No response when plugged into usb. Using stock cable 24AWG. No lights come on and can't be detected by my computer when plugged in (macbook running...

There is no fuse... the USB is electronically fused in the COMPUTER, not the NIO.

The USB units will NOT activate or light UNLESS the correct driver is loaded and active in the computer. In the Windows type environment you ALSO have to select the external device as the default as opposed to the computer's internal audio system. The MAC likely has a similar setting.

Was watching tv ( LG 50"PC1D) as normal and all of sudden the tv just died, no power. checked the 10 amp fuse in plug and this had blown for what ever reason. There are 4 other plugs on this extention...

Make sure that you've replaced it with same current(ampere) and voltage ratings to avoid further damage in the future. Fuse, sometimes failed due to voltage surge, aging or the unit gone to maximum current usage. Low quality fuse is also to consider for this kind of symptoms.

Ive got a nordic sauna with a 13 amp plug, but

Unless you have "Nordic Mini 3" for 240 V, all other types of Nordic sauna are more than 5000 Watt which means that their rated current for 240V is more than 30 A. For 120V it is two times more.

I don't know your type of Nordic, the rating of the fuse and what voltage are you using, but it may be less than the needed rating. Check the rated voltage and current of your sauna heater.

If your voltage is equal to the rated and the rated current of the sauna heater is less than the rating of the blown fuse, you may have short in a part of the heater.

Changing a fuse, Hard?

well its not very hard to do,,, but,,, what caused the fuse to blow?
what fuse has blown as there are at least 3 of them in there, none of them are the same size as a 13 amp plug and most are of the slow blow type,,, even the hight voltage fuse!!! (ei:1000's of volts!) if a fuse has blown its most likely to be the unit getting near the end of its life, and sufferd whats called a "flash over" maybe on the capacitor or the megatron both would pop a fuse, but it will only do it again!! and that next time it could go with a big bang and stink your house out for weeks with a burning smell!!!! and if you dont know what not to tuch inside of this microwave dont go inside of it, it could easly kill you, even with the plug pulled out the wall scocket, there will still be 1000,s of volts kicking about inside of it,,, whats your life worth??????
microwaves are only £50.00p up now,, play it safe buy a new one


Hi! i suggest that you do parts testing to sort out the problem.

I have a Hitachi, 42 in. plasma ultravision and this morning I could not turn the tv on. No power.

check the branch circuit of your convenience outlet..the circuit breaker may have tripped..try to connect other appliance to the outlet where your TV is connected..this is to ensure there's power in it..if you are certain then that there's indeed power from the outlet you are sure that the TV is not working..check TV fuse and replace if blown..check resistance between the plug terminals after fuse replacement..if resistance is low, change voltage dependent resistor (VDR) with same is a disk type resistor that looks like a big ceramic capacitor located just after the fuse..either blue,black or red.blown fuse may be due to power surge during the night..

Stopped working

just had this myself......the problem IS A BLOWN 15 AMP fuse INSIDE the microwave... you must FIRST make sure plug is UNPLUGGED....remove the 3 screws on back maybe 4 ??,,,then lift off the top and side panel...the fuse is located in the red wire behind the start button....GOOD LUCK !!
