Question about Pioneer SX-315
I recently bought this SX-315 from an estate sale. After putting a new cord on it, when plugged in, the display comes on for a few microseconds, then shuts off and smells kinda hot but doesn't smoke. Could it be the power supply board?
Sounds like speaker wire are touching each other somewhere. Check the back of the receiver and each speaker. If indeed that is the cause its making your unit go into protect mode. All it takes is one stray wire

It is more likely to be an output stage problem. The unit will be shutting down as a result if a DC offset in a faulty channel. You will need to isolate the problem somewhat to diagnose what is going on. Do you have a multimeter and a decent knowledge of electronics? If so, then I can talk you throiugh some things to check. If you dont think you are up to it, I would take it to a HiFi repair guy for a look.
It may be more worth your while to buy a refurbished unit here for $132.
I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :)
