Radio Blowing a Fuse

Reposted for @matty77204:

I have a cb radio a COBRA 148F GTL am ssb with freq counter so it use to work i could plug it in and it work One day i got stupid and hook the power cord up to the 148F GTL and stuck the power cord into the power cord strip surge protector and it blew the fuse and i pulled the wires out a day later i replaced the fuse in the power cord and hook my cobra 148F GTL and it turn the radio on nothing but it blows the fuse in the line i then changed the fuse and hook my other COBRA 29 LTD bluetooth up it turns on off display works fully working so i was wondering if you know the cause of why my cobra 148F GTL wont turn on and when i turn it on it blows the fuse all the time.. Looking for answers. Thank you for your time... Matt

When you plugged it into the incorrect cord you shorted something on the circuit board.

There will be a protection diode that has been blown by the (reverse polarity?). It will be a bit larger black resin type diode, and it will need to be changed out otherwise it will keep blowing fuses. A 4001 rectifier diode will work. Keep in mind the orientation of the original as far as anode and cathode. Now, with this said, I am unsure exactly what you plugged it into or what polarity. Hopefully it was a 12v power supply.

It will be very, very close to where the main positive wire runs into the circuit board from the power plug.
