Re: pioneer m-770 will not turn on

You probably have a short in the circuit some where. you need to replace the transistor and look at all the solder joints to make sure there not damaged or cracked. i have the same amplifier and i replaced the fuse several times and it blew every time up until the last time when the 4 of the power output transistors blew. what ever you do do not try and power it on till you do all the things i told you or you will have sparks and fire. my mistake cost me my amplifier. but might help you get yours repaired

Tuner problems

If you can hear music from other sources then it likely that it's the tuner that has the fault. Most tuners these days are one or two IC's. I would suspect them in this case. You can find them easily as there will lots of coils around them.

No power to amp

You probably have a bad channel or you could try unpluging the amp for 2 minutes and plug it in again to let it reset.

I have a technics SU-V98-KM8 Amplifier that turns on and lights up but does not have any soundd coming out of it. I have checked alll the cables and cords and everything is hooked up the way its supposed...

Your amplifier is turned on and all the indicator lights work and you made it sure that all the cables, and cords are attached to where they are supposed to be connected and yet you don't get any sound coming out when you play a music. Amplifiers have selector knobs for you to set where your source is coming from. Selector knobs can be set to TUNER, DVD, CD, and AUX. The scenario might be like this: your source is coming from a movie being played on your DVD player connected to your amplifier but your knob selector is set to AUX. Try playing a music selection from your CD player attached to your amplifier and set the selector knob to CD. If still there is no sound coming out you need to have it checked by a qualified technician.

Pioneer power amp m-770 keeps blowing the 6.3 amp fuse what could be wrong?

Suspect an overload in the power supply or audio output stage.
Power supply culprits include transformer, the big capacitors, diodes, bridge rectifier, voltage regulator etc.
Audio culprits are anything on the heat sink(s).
Look for burnt, damaged parts too, anything running very hot!
Follow the circuit from the fuse see where it takes you too start.
