Plug removal help.


Hi-
https://sites.google.com/site/mypictureskrc/
How do I remove a plug like this? This is a DVD player that blew a fuse so I put a new one in and it blew that too. The man at Radio Shack said if the fuse blew it is between the fuse and the electric source. If that is true this is the next part to replace.
Any thoughts?
Thanks,
k

Need something better for the second photo, but the way you remove those D Plugs, is just pull on it. If it does not pull out, that means either melted in the female end, or got glued in some how.

Best way to take a photo, is head on, not on angles, due to the two photos you took do not give a really great presentation of the problem. When you take a photo for something like you question, it is easier to show people the problem, by taking a end shot of the plug & device, and for the second, a top view.

You think. I thought that the drones at BB were the worst. Hopefully this one Ratshack employee is not like the rest of them at that location.

So you mean the RS guy is wrong and it is not between the electric source and the fuse?
I will take new photos as suggested too.
thanks!

A fuse or breaker trips because of an overload downstream.
If the fuse is blowing inside the dvd player, then it is a problem with the player.
Have you plugged something into the receptale to see if it works?

JB-
the player was plugged into a surge protector and there are still units, tv plugged in to that SP and working fine.

If it is now the power source what is my next step to locating the problem?

The problem may be the recifier that changes AC voltage to DC voltage.

Unless you know how to test and troubleshoot circuit boards, it is cheaper to replace the player.

I don't even test my electroincs past the fuse any more, just to time consuming.
