Well my first stupid mistake in the hobby and should have know better.
I turned on my Jr XP6102 radio, then went to plug in my cord for the sim and my radio screen went out.

I was pissed but after taking off the back panel I found a
2cm fuse blown out.
I sure hope that is the only problem.
The numbers read
E.3A/250V

Now I am not sure on that .3A, it might be 3A but there so close.

Anyways where can I buy an extra one like this? auto store don't have anything low as I checked already. maybe a online fuse site or something. But I have come for your help.
Thank you

The fuse you need is .3 amp not 3.0 amp. If you put a 3 amp fuse in there and you make the same mistake you could damage the radio!!

JR6102 current drain 200mA (.2amp) normal mode and .070mA in dsc mode.

Based on what crazzyjoe said about the 6102 model being .2amp, I'll take a run down to Radio shack and check out the fuse of both models and compare the wire inside.
Right now the wire is super small, I;ll double check and see what I can find.

Thanks for your replies, it has been very helpful

If you need to verify the fuse size, give Horizon Hobby Customer service a quick call.


Product Support: 1-877-504-0233 , they will confirm the size you need.

Hi guys,

Just for the hell of it I took apart my friends radio and looked inside and he has the same fuse i have 300mAmp fuse. We then went to the hobby shop where we bought are radio's and told him about it and he called his JR distributer to find out what size they fuse should be and they told him 300mAmp 125 or 250volt. If we put a larger fuse in the radio we will burn somthing out if somthing should go wrong.

We do some use a 3amp fuse and some a 300m amp fuse??

I have the 300 mamp fuse in there with out any probs.

Did JR change somthing along the line on these 6102??

Joe

Perhaps ( but unlikely ) in the USA but here in the UK ALL 2610's ( aka 6102 ) are fitted with a 3A fuse.

I would have thought that 0.3A ( 300mA ) is too close for comfort. The set will draw just over 250mA normally but on switch on there will be a slight surge which could quite easily exceed the 300mA.

If I remember, I will put a DVM with peak storage onto a couple of 2610's tomorrow when I get to work and let you know what I find.

Ok thanks,

If you feel that there should be a bigger fuse then I will put a bigger one in maybe a 1.5amp instead of 3amp.

Let me know what you find please and I will pass on the info to other people with the same radio.

Thanks

Joe
