Was there a surge or storm when the fuse blew?

Tim
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

no also have surge protecter connected

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 12 months ago.
OK do you have a meter handy?

Tim
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

Yes

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 12 months ago.
OK, do you see the two large plugs going out of the power supply, one goes the to ss board on the left and one to the sc board on the right? (these two connectors are in the top left of the board)

There should be two wires to each connector. I need you to set your meter to ohms and measure between the two wires. what do you get?

Tim
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

0 readings

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 12 months ago.
0 ohms? The same reading you would get if you touch your meter leads together?

Tim
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

Yes 0 ohms

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 12 months ago.
OK unplug both wires and check the pins on the board. What does it read?

Tim
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

Same, 0. I have two meters, both read 0

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 12 months ago.
OK if those are reading 0 ohms on the board then you have a bad power supply and you need to replace it.

TXN/P1BJTU is the part number you need, I would recommend ebay myself, thats the cheapest I have found it yet.
