Yep.....They have always looked like this. I think they first came out in 1998 or 1999. Same wiring scheme.

Wal-Mart is not going to have those fuses
Do you have a Radio Shack near you they probably won't be open on new years day though.
some hardware stores might have them but they won't be open ether.

But I bet it sounds clean! :)

You should see the inside of my Decware Mini Torii. It is quite the plate of spaghetti.

Jensen Oil Caps! Little pots of gold--nice!

By looking at the pictures I can't see any damaged parts
Just change the fuses.
Strange that the fuse for the other side blue or did you switch the tubes and try it?

I did not switch the tubes. No idea why they both went.

 

It uses 1/4" X 1-1/4" 500mA/250V fuses. Looks like a 5 pack for $2......Does that sound right?

 

Clayton, It also has Kimber Cable wiring for the subwoofer outputs and CD inputs....It is basically halfway to F1 status. The only thing I can't do it get it painted since they would have to take everything out.

David, there are two tube fuses, both blown. 500mA/250VP fast blow. The fuses are connected to the Bias ports and to the KT88's. I am going to assume that the AC fuse is OK (3A slow blow 250V) since it powered up OK.

 

The manual says they go when the output tubes are failing.

 

Glenn, here are some pictures. Let me know if I need to get a close up to something.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maybe I can hold off on sending them in. I need to pick up some new fuses tomorrow. Any ideas on where to buy fuses? Small town America means I have Wal-Mart for tomorrow's option. Does that matter? I am not a DIY guy.

 

I appreciate everyone's help!

 I have a local Radio shack store but my local Home Depot has quite a few of those glass tube fuses as well. You can check on the web for store inventory.

That was Amazon, but it gives me perspective for a local buy....Basically, they are cheap. Not a lot in this hobby that is...:D

 

-25 tomorrow AM, but I need to get fuses!

 

John57, thanks for the Home Depot suggestion. I will probably try them if Rat Shack is a bust.

I forgot about home depot.
There is also Lowes they also will have these fuses.
these stores will be open on New Years day.

Happy New Year everyone! Well, east coast time. :cool:

post #7274 of 10224

Happy NewYear!!

 

Eric, sorry about this damamge.

I can see a burned out transistor, please check it out.

 

post #7275 of 10224

Happy New Year! 12 hours late for this time zone but I only just woke up.

Sorry to hear about the amp problem, I hope changing the fuses fixes it and that Stavros is wrong, but I fear the worst.

There should be a Tube Amp Electronics 101 course for those who have no idea what's happening inside, like myself
