Hey! My stereo won't turn on anymore. I took off the lid, found a blown fuse, and am attempting to replace it now but it isn't working. The blown fuse is a 6.3 A / 125 V but the guy at Radioshack didn't have that and told me a 5 A / 125 V would work. Suggestions?

The cause could be a blown fuse or the power transformer that has a built in thermal fuse has opened preventing power to the rest of the stereo. The main unit must be taken apart to assess the amount of work needed and to check for secondary problems.
Audio output shorted out or blown fuses in power supply check all fuses if fuses are good your Audio out put transitors or I.C has been shorted out as a result of impedence over load in future dont connect speakers in parallel in those small Audio units.
We had the same problem with our last rca stereo. I don't remember what model it was. My husband took it apart and found that there was and area on the circuit board that was fried. I don't know of any other solution then the one we chose. Trash it. I'm not expert but I would imagine that you could by a new stereo for the price of replacing that circuit board. Just don't buy an rca. They are junk. Our new rca just quit playing cds.
Its too bad this is a solid state system and has no user replaceable parts inside unless you have some knowledge of printed circuit board repairs. It sounds as there may be a power supply problem or the output devices are bad and loading down the power supply. These days, most of these type of systems, do not pay to have them repaired, unless you want to of course. I have found most repairs with the labor are almost or exceed the cost of a new one. Hope this helps. Good Luck
