    Before doing everything i suggest to check output transistors for a short circuit.. then after you can put your new fuse…

    Ok video, that's the first thing to check and sometimes you get lucky and fix your stereo. However I used to work in a shop and found that when a fuse blows there's almost always something that caused it.

    Thanks. I know it is the fuse and now I know that I can fix it myself for a couple of dollars. Appreciated.Of course, as some comments say, it could be a number of things that go wrong with a Home Theater system, but if you have a blown fuse, why not just change that first and see what happens. If that does not work and something is causing the fuse to blow then all you have wasted is a very small amount of money.

    If you're new… be sure not to short out any capacitors. They still hold a charge after the power is unplugged. Don't work alone either. Have someone around that can turn off power/call 911 if you're doing the 60 hertz shuffle

    Viewers, please don't be led to believe that a repair of your AV receiver is this simple. This video is of absolutely no value. Common failures are power output transistors, HDMI transceivers, MCU's, and power supply problems.
