    My Pioneer home reciever will turn on but shuts off after 10-30
    seconds. I was using it one day and I turned down the music cause I
    was just testing the new speaker set-up I had just hooked up and about
    10-15 seconds after I turned down the music, the reciever just shut
    off. It hasn't worked properly since. I know it has to be a rather
    minor problem or it wouldn't even turn on in the first place. I tried
    replacing the fuse but it requires an 8amp 125v but the only two fuses
    I could find even remotely close to that in the area I live in (the
    middle of nowhere Minnesota) is a 7 1/2amp 32v and 5amp 125v. I think
    this maybe the problem and I would really appreciate any help I can
    get. Please email me your suggestions to as
    the is my parents email.

    Although the fuses should be the correct rating when you get to the bottom
    of the problem, if the ones that you are putting in are not blowing, then
    they are not the problem. If you were messing with speaker setups prior to
    its unfortunate demise, then it is far more likely that you have done some
    damage to the output stages by either accidentally shorting the output, or
    by sustained high output running with speakers of too low a nominal
    impedance, connected.
