Help Me!!

Post by mjones » Wed Oct 19, 2011 11:57 am

I am a NEW Member...I need help....

Presently, I own a Carver 1.5t amp....

I am trying to locate a good service shop for this amp....
I need to buy replacement fuses for this (10 amp, 32v)...it is not working at present....it likely is the fuse, but could involve more....
I need recommendations for a Pre-Amp-- a good match to the 1.5t....and, I want to BUY now...

I can be called at my work 1-800-951 0988 ext 210

THANK YOU!

...Try Radio Shack or your local auto parts distributor.

If you blew a fuse, chances are good that there's a reason...

Where are you located?

Here is a photo of the fuse that was in the M-1.5t.... as you can see, it is blown, but it also has one end larger than the other and I have been unable to find such a thing anywhere in the Charlotte NC area (Radio Shack, Auto Supply stores, etc.), but I may be looking in the wrong place.... still need help finding this thing..... 10AMP 32 VOLT Fuse

I most certainly could be wrong on this...you're in front of it and I'm not, but to me that looks like a regular mini fuse size with a portion of the fuse holder mechanism stuck to the one end of it.

Pardon me if wrong, and probably am. But in any case, good luck with getting it fixed up!

I'd second the likelyhood of something else being wrong...
