Pioneer blu ray fuse help!!

I hope some of you guys can help me! I had all my av equipment out for a good clean and to make space for my new B&W HTM62 speaker.  It took me longer than I thought due to work commitments to get a chance to put it all back together again and numpty here as got my power cables mixed up  :help:

I am now not sure which "fig. 8" cable I need for my Pioneer BDP-140 blu ray player.  I have found a fig.8 cable with a 5 amp fuse but I dont think this is the right cable and 5amp fuse seems a bit high for a blu ray player? (correct me if I'm wrong).  The manual makes no mention of fuse rating and surprisingly couldnt find anything at all after a quick google.  If someone with the same blu ray wouldnt mind having a check of the ruse rating it would be very much appreciated!!!!

 

Cheers guys!

How many figure of 8 power cables have you got? Are there different types of fuses in each?

hi big boss thanks for your help.I seen to have collected spares over the years, I have 2 fig.8s with 5 amp fuses and onewith a 3 amp fuse. Annoyingly I'm pretty sure the ps3 is 5 amp leaving  one 3 amp and one 5 amp fuse for the blu ray. Can't believe it's not in the manual!

Be on the safe aide with 3amp. If it blows (unlikely) use 5amp but no more. Otherwise whats the current input?

The Pioneer BDP-140 Blu-ray player only pulls 23 watts of power so a 3 amp fuse maximum would be plenty big enough. I have a 3 amp fuse on my TV that pulls around double that power, so no worries.

RE: Pioneer blu ray fuse help!!

thanks chaps for your help, i did some quick calculations too and neither the ps3 nor the blu ray pull anywhere near 3 amp.  Think I'll buy some 3 amp fuses and stick them in both just for my own peace of mind!
