Why does a fuse blow in my JVC receiver Model AX-S331?

usually a crossed speaker wire, or overdriving the amp will cause a fuse to blow

I am thinking of replacing my now very old JVC AX 330 amplifier with a Marantz PM7003 amplifier and want to know if this is a suitable replacement in terms of power output etc.

You, sir, are a rare adherent to stereo-only electronics. Are you replacing it for cause (showing its age)? The PM7003 is only 2 x 70 watts like the JVC but it also has separable preamp/amps so you COULD upgrade or augment the power output with external amps and still control it all locally.

Of course, any current AVR's do that too and bring digital sources and multichannel audio to the mix for as little as the PM7703 may cost.

I have a Onkyo Tx-Sv909pro receiver that just went quiet one day when i was listening to it.It had a lot of dust inside of it.But the lights where still one but no sound.It blew the fuse so i changed the...

So it would sound like insufficient airflow allowed it to cook itself. If one has the will and the budget EVERYTHING is fixable.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it still fails to come up and stay up don't keep feeding it fuses as this cat's lives are being or have been used up. Take it to a pro for an assessment.

Is this a Pioneer receiver or a JVC? Either way, if you have "had it for years", replace it. You will be surprised at the price now a days. Gas is up, but electronic equipment is usually a good buy.

Pioneer VSX-517 help!

Sounds like you may have had a short on one or both speakers. Check the wires and make sure that the + and - wires are not touching. As for replacing the fuse if you open the case you void the warranty but it is easy to do. Take off the cover (with the unit unplugged from the wall) and you will see the fuses most likely on the power supply board. Make sure you replace them with the proper amp rating. The rating should be listed on the pcb and/or should be stamped on the metal end of the fuse itself.
