Jr 8103 Fuse blowing

Jr 8103 keeps blowing fuse? If radio is in the on position when fuse is put in the fuse doesn't blow until you switch the radio off? Any ideas?

Blowing fuse

I had a problem with my JR783. It would blow the fuse when I plugged in my wall wart charger. It turned out to be the charger at the jack end, the insulator ring was damaged. Don't think this is your problem but I thought I would offer it up anyway

You have a short, it has to be sent back to horizon, its a not so costly repair. Goto their website and download the adobe form, fill it out and mail them the radio. They will fix it and send it back to you. On the form there is a column where you provide your CC info.
