You have a short either from foreign object inside or blown audio amps. Look for any chard or burnt components.

Why does the fuse blow Instantly?

Link for the service manual: On page 50 of the manual (36 of the pdf) it says for the "Sub woofer pre-out jack (Not available on the VSX-305 model) If you want to boost the low frequencies, connect to a subwoofer power amplifier" Your model will not drive a sub-woofer with out another amp. His sub may be a powered sub?

How to find why my Pioneer SX-315 is blowing fuse 125V 8 Amp ?

Fuses blow due to an overload. Generally caused by a short circuited semi-conductor. The most likely cause in your case is something in the power amp section. Chances are something on the heat sink. The device might even have blown up! But if the amp uses transistors in that stage you can easily check these with the multi-meter. All you have to do is put the test probes on the terminals and on the Ohm setting you get a reading like you have touch the probes together - then you have found the shorted part. There might be more than one that has failed so test all the transistors. Anything connected with the power supply can cause the short. But since the biggest cause of fuse blowing in power amps is the main output stage I wouldn't bother with the power supply till you have eliminated the power amp. Failure of devices in that section is also linked to faulty speaker wiring so check that too.

Amp powered down after got a few rain drops

You might get lucky and it be only the fuse. Since it doesn't have a reset switch, you'll have to remove the cover. Un-plug it first, remove the screws, remove the cover and taking it outside, blow off any of the dust that has fallen into the amp.

You should be able to locate a fuse near the point where the power cord enters the back. Carefully remove, check it (a thin continuous wire from end to end) and replace with an exact match for size and capacity (if it's 5A, don't replace it with a 10A) if it's burnt.

You should be able to power it up without having to reconnect everything to test if that worked. If not, a repair shop is in your future, or a new receiver.

Have you tried a 2nd source like the CD input or AUX input?
Have you tried the headphones..same static?
If nothing works then the output amp is broken. There could be internal fuses but only open a stereo when the power is DISCONNECTED. Then check for fuses
