I am guessing that the ceramic resistor is close to the output transistors. I would also guess that one or more of the output transistors has shorted. This causes a high current draw that is blowing the fuse. You could also have a power supply problem. The ceramic resistor is a .22ohm dual emitter resistor that is used in the output stage. The transistors located close by are probably shorted and should be replaced. Start there and let us know what happens once the transistors and the resistor are changed.

Can you elaborate on this, "I'm wondering if it has to do with a speaker not being in correct post./negitave place"? --- What did you see or do that makes you wonder?
You didn't answer if the fuses were blown or if you just changed them for lack of anything better to try, like checking the manual, which says to suspect shorted speaker wires if "- - - - - - -" is blinking on the display.
Disconnect the speaker wires and see if that helps the receiver boot up, then diagnose the short.
If it doesn't come back to life I'd suspect it got fried by a power surge or static. I hope not.
