You can get fuses from any electronic parts shop, such as Maplin (UK) or Radio Shack (USA). I would get a few, because chances are the fuse did not just blow because of a bad speaker wire! Fuses are there to protect the device from an overload (which would cause a fire). The mostly likely cause of your fuse blowing is that your wire shorted out an output transistor on the channel the speaker was connected to and the transistor is acting like a piece of wire now!
If you have an Ohm meter I would put it's probes on the terminals of the transistors on the heat sink. You will soon know, as it will be just like you have touched the meter's probes together!

Was connecting subs to speaker connections when it popped, turned off and will not turn back on...VSX-518-k


You probably blew a fuse. It should be marked on the back next to where it tells you to turn the power off before connecting speakers.

Good Luck,

My pioneer amp vsx d508 reads overload.what to do?


Sounds like a bad amplifier IC.
Unhook all speakers at the back of your pioneer. turn it on and turn down the volume. If it's no longer in overload you have a bad speaker or speaker wires touching somewhere.
If its still in overload it's prlobley a amp IC and will cost between $25-$60 just for the part if you can replace it yourself.

Problem for Pioneer VSX-818V-K 5.1 Channels Receiver Surround sound doesn't work, display reads 2CH IN,surround speakers are enabled,automatic test will find surrand speakers


Test with an surround sound media ie. Blu-ray or DVD)_. Disconnect the front and all other speakers that are working to see if sound from the missing speakers are heard. If this doesn't work then start by tracing and checking all the wires from the receiver to the speakers for bad/shorted/open connections.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.

I have bad static from my Pioneer vsx 49 Elite


sorry no easy solution as it sounds like the output transistors blew out or the emmitter resistors. you will need a service manual and an multimeter to measure the resistors on or around the audio output transistors they are a low value resistor usually around 1 to 2 watts in size. Do not replace any bad , burnt or discolloered resistors around the audio output transistors as if tou do you might just cause more damage to the output transistorsor audio output stage including the audio driver stage of the amp!!!!!!
