Question about Pioneer SX-205 Receiver
Ok, ive had this amplifier for not even a week and its already broken! I bought this because i just got new speakers and my shi**y stereo 37 watt wasnt cuttin it. Now i have them hooked up to my computer. This is where it gets interesting! The amp was working perfect for about 4 days and when i turn my computer on the next morning instantly a loud bang rocks me out of my chair. Little bit of smoke too. Fuse right? but why, and how do i replace it without spendin big bucks to a repairman? Appreciate any and all 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.
