I have a PIONEER SX-201 STEREO RECEIVER. I JUST REPLACED THE FUSE.... IT DOES TURN ON NOW, HOWEVER THERE IS NO SOUND?
First of all without knowing what happened to blow the fuse. Did it happen during a lightning storm? Was there a power outage or surge? were you using it at max volume or near max for an extended time? How many other devices do you have it plugged into? I looked it up online and it appears to be a 1992 model and I see it has finals able to output 50 wats. My first line of thought is you blew the finals (transistors that output to the speakers.) there are usually internal fuses for the finals and in some cases resistors designed to fail saving internal components from burning out. I see a picture of the unit with the cover off and there are 2 fuses by the power cord in the back and the finals are just forward of the power section attached to a large heat sink from the power section to the finals. you will not get sound if the finals portion of the circuitry is burned out. I suggest you take it to a service certified shop where an electronic tech such as myself can repair it for you. Please do not attempt to do this yourself because of shock hazard and ***** from 120 v electricity. It usually is a simple fix for the technician.
