I know this may not be an antique yet, but does any one know the value of the display fuse on this JVC unit?

Thank you, Phil

Hi Phil,

According to the service manual the US version needs a 4A fuse.
Service manual and parts list can be downloaded from here:

Regards, Peter

Peter: Are you sure its a 4A - the one I took out of the display looks like a 12V, .15A, although its hard to read. I know its not a 4A


Thanks, Phil

Phil it's listed as JVC part number ELP4101-003, so 12volt .15A (150ma) as you stated...This is just an example and not where to buy

That is a lamp, not a fuse.

Thank all of you for your help - I've ordered some 12V, .15A fuses.


Thanks again, Phil

Frankly, in the case of hard to access oddball lamps in stereos, many people have decided to convert to white LEDs, either by buying designed drop-in replacements, or soldering in the LED with proper dropping resistor so the issue never reoccurs.

Good suggestion. Drop in would be fine. But there are many purists who would rather not alter the way it was made; there are others who would welcome a change like maybe blue LEDs.
