I don't feel like typing a novel, so here's the short-ish version: DX cabinets have two fuse-controlled power switches. One is in the back (which I think of as the "main" switch), and the other is in the front section. The switch on the front section is constantly blowing out fuses every time it gets power. I tried both plugging the front section into the back section (the normal way) and plugging the front section directly into a power outlet. Both times the fuse blew as soon as I switched on the power. Where do I go from here?

I'll provide more details upon request.

If its blowing a fuse like that, either the wrong fuse is in it, there is a short somewhere. You`re in FL so your outlet should be a 115... Did you use that kind of fuse?

IIRC DX cabs had two fuses in them near where the plug connects into the back of the machine on the little clip piece, but my memory is pretty fuzzy, Maybe ask Hellacious or Jbean. They have much more experience with DX cabs than me.

The fuse that originally blew is a 5mm x 20mm 250V 4A barrel fuse. It's been in the machine since I bought it 11 years ago. I didn't even know that switch was fuse-controlled until it went out and I got down there to take a look.

I actually replaced it with a 5A fuse because the store didn't have any 4A, and those blew too. I guess I'll have to get the front unit to a good working space (which won't be easy due to where I've put the machine) and see what I can find.

the fuse on the back actually has a spare in it. But I have a question. I blew my fuse yesterday and I replaced the fuse on the back So the game/sound/screen work but my lights and pads don’t power up only the header. Any ideas? Also is there another fuse? (gx machine btw).

So I guess my machine just needed...a rest? I replaced both fuses (the one in the back had blown too), and everything just came right back up. Yay.
