Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I took your advice and found the fuse was blown. I got a 6.3A 250V slow blow fuse from Radio Shack. However when I plug the unit back in it blows the fuse. What could be wrong and is it an easy fix or should I take it to a repair shop. I think the original problem was caused by a power surge as the power had gone out earlier in the day due to a thunder storm.
Ok, it is probably not an easy fix for a layman. It may have blown output transistors, or power supply failure. As to whether it is economic depends on what has actually failed. But if it is output transistors failed, be prepared for $130 to $170 to fix it. Probably not worth it. They are a little temperamental to fix, and I recall repairing a number of them under warranty when the were new for blown output stages. It is worth getting an estimate from someone near to you. Try and use a Pioneer agent as they have experience and access to spares. Sorry this is not a fix for you, but I hope that it turns out ok for you. :)
