Sega CD2 Fuse (125v 2.5A Pico Fuse)
125V 2.5A Pico fuse Sega CD Model 2 consoles.
Designed to break on purpose, fuses are used as safety devices that prevent over current from damaging components on a PCB. A common problem of Sega CD systems not powering on is a blown fuse.
Diagnosing a blown fuse is a simple process with a multimeter in continuity mode. Placing your probes on either end of the fuse leads should result in a beep. If you don't hear a beep or buzz from your meter the fuse is likely blown and will need to be replaced.
These pico fuses are easy to install with only basic soldering skills required. Only 1 fuse is provided in this listing.
Installation Note: Earlier revisions of the Sega CD2 mainboard used a through hole fuse while later ones used a surface mount on the underside of the board. This replacement fuse can be used on either of the variations.
