Default Re: Panasonic RF-D1

Just dragging this thread up, as my parents neighbours have presented me with one of these to repair.

My first check was the fuse, which was open.

Looking around the boards didn't show any bulging caps or other glaring problems, so I have (temporarily) by-passed it, and the unit works.

I am running the unit from a regulated 9V adapter as the original adapter is giving out 13.47V off-load, I'm assuming that this was the cause of the fuse blowing, and I can replace it?

The unit has been tested on FM and DAB, and seems quite happy.

Questions are, what value fuse should I fit? and do we think that the higher voltage saw off the original fuse?

Thanks,

Colin
