Anton bauer used to keep a spare in the gold mount itself. I actually changed one on the job while a wedding was going on.

Jason McCormy August 21st, 2008 08:32 PM

So, I got the fuse and I think I took the gold mount off. I can't though figure out where the heck the fuse I need to replace is. I followed the red wire from the power tap down and I don't see anything the resembles a fuse holder. I've been all over the Anton Bauer site, but can't find a photo of it. Any ideas?

And thank you again for all the help you have given me.

Well, I have been all over the adapter, even took off the small screws to get to the circutry behind the other plate (very carefully) and nothing. I assume there has to be one in there, am I blind?

It's kind of non-obvious how to get it to swing up until you've done it a couple of times.

What Jim says. I also have the softbox mounted on front with the two screws. The tabs spread, and the head flips open. Takes all of ten seconds to switch lamps. I keep a 25 in it and a 50 watt handy for extra punch with the soft box swung open.

Here is a bad photo of my adapter, with the red wire leading from the powertap on the right.

Jason the fuse is inside the black tube at the top left of the photo. It's inside that protective cover

Jason McCormy August 21st, 2008 11:57 PM

Ok, thank you. How do I get that off? It doesn't budge any way that I move it.

Thank you very much for helping.

John Sirb August 22nd, 2008 12:04 AM

the tube isn't attached. Just lift it out with a small screwdriver. and the cover slides off.

Jason McCormy August 22nd, 2008 12:31 AM

Ahhhh... I feel like an idiot. Hmm. Well, I got it off, thank you all very much.

Hmm.

It is a smaller size fuse than the one I bought at radioshack, and it doesn't seem to be broken in anyway, but I suppose I can't really tell.

Everyone, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Just to be sure, if you have a continunity tester, you can test to see if the fuse is popped or not. If you don't have on, maybe the floks at Radio shack can check it for you before you pull it

Jason McCormy August 23rd, 2008 04:45 PM

I have it fixed! Thank you for all your help.

Once I finally figured out how to simply lift the fuse case up, I realized it was a much smaller fuse than the 7A that I had purchased to replace it. After going to every store, including 4 automotive, in town that carried fuses like this, I couldn't find one that size. I contacted Anton Bauer and they said that if I'm only using a 25 watt bulb, I could get away with the 6.3A fuse that RadioShack had in stock.

I am up and running now. Thank you all again, your help has been fantastic!
