You must have had a shorted transistor on that particular pop bumper driver board. Or possibly bad solder joints on the +5 volt terminal on that pop bumper board.

Quoted from Moto_bone:

I replaced the transistor even though it tested fine. and reflowed the solder connections and it still blows fuses. Maybe a bad cap?

If the board has been updated, I would check the single 1N4148 diode for a shorted condition. If it checks good and the board has been updated with new electrolytic capacitors, then replace both of the integrated circuits (one or both are shot). Install IC sockets for the new chips.

A word of caution here: this board has very delicate foil traces so use care when desoldering any components from it. I use my Hakko 808 desoldering gun for this board.
