HHB Circle 5 Actives - fuse keeps blowing

Postby Pabs » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:33 am

Hi guys

I am having a problem with one of my HHB Circle 5 active monitors. In one of them, the fuse keeps blowing as soon as I power up. I'm using the correct 2A slow blow type as instructed by the manual. The other monitor of the pair works fine and doesn't have this problem

Any ideas what the problem might be?

Hi Pabs - good to see you back here. Unfortunately your problem could be caused by all kinds of things and it really needs to be looked at by someone knowledgeable. The first thing I would do is check the power supply and possibly try to separate the power supply from the amplifier in order to track down the fault. However, this isn't the sort of thing where you can just set out a procedure to follow as the steps that need to be taken depend on what you find.

A significant fault in the power supply, probably. If the fuse blows straight away it's something pretty catastrophic (in the electronic engineering sense). Probably repairable, though...

I'd suggest contacting HHB's service department.
