 I accidentally replaced the fuse of my europort esp500mp3 with a dc fuse and now one of the resistors blew, is there any one who knows the witch resistor I need to replace it? It's the green one. (R2)

Hello Quinten, welcome to the community.

 

If the first fuse blew and the resistor burned after you replaced the fuse, it sounds as though there is a bigger problem in the power supply or amplifier. I suggest that you raise a Service Request Care ticket. You can do this through the Support menu on the top of the page - provided you have completed the mandatory fields in your profile.

Thanks for the info. But is it possible that I blew the resistor because I used a dc instead of a ac fuse?

There are not separate fuses for AC and DC although a fuse may show different current ratings for AC and DC. There are fast and slow fuses, though. You could have caused the resistor to burn by using a fuse with a higher current rating or a slower response than the original one. When a fuse blows it usually means that there is a fault in the equipment. If the fuse is replaced by one with a higher current rating or a delayed response, the fault can cause another component to fail.
