Question about Sony STR-DE975 Receiver
I don't know if this will solve your problem, but I have a question. Does the receiver sit under another piece of hardware? Especially one that gives off a lot of heat? It is possible that the amp or power supply is overheating. The heat forces the receiver off until it has a chance to cool down. Then when it turns back on, it starts to generate heat again. Try moving it out from under any other gear or out from under a shelf so that lots of air can get in the top. Maybe even try putting a fan over it, just as a test to see if this helps. I work at a recording studio in Toronto, and we were having the same problem with one of our digital multitrack tape machines (No the studio is not trapped 10 years in the past - we just use tape for backing up and client delivery). Anyway, early in the day, the unit worked fine. If we tried to use it later in the day, we would get glitches all over the tape, or the transport would freeze up altogether. We found that when we moved the unit into a rack where it could really breath, and where it wasn't right under an 8 channel mic pre-amp, that it worked without any problem. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
