Hi Tony

Look on ebay or Google for a TO220 heatsink. Believe it or not, the thin metal strip you have referred to, is in fact the manfacturer's attempt at heatsinking the regulator. It is all but useless. There is one here that would be ok.

You will need to bend the veins to squeeze it into the space available. Do this carefully because they can easily break off when you bend them.

Alternatively, consider bolting the regulator to the inside of the cabinet instead. To do this, remove the power board, remove the old regulator completely. Solder flexible PTFE covered link up wire to each pin on the regulator and leave these about 4 inches long, Use heatshrink sleeving or plastic tube to cover all the solder joints, Drill a small hole in the bottom of the cabinet. Use some heatsink paste, a mica insulator on the back of the regulator and bolt it firmly to the inside of the cabinet under the power board. Solder each PTFE lead to the where the pins would have been soldered under the board and then neatly fold the wires under the board before refitting it. I have repaired about 6 of these using this method and I can confirm that the regulator hardly gets warm as the whole cabinet acts as the heatsink. Although it is more difficult to do.
Only attempt any repair or modification if you are confident in your competence in basic practical electronic work.

STR-DE945 stuck in auto protect mode?. I'm pretty sure it is the output capacitors but I do not Know where they are located to change them.


First of all my STR-DE845 started having the protector problem about 6 months ago and I bought this receiver back in 2001. This is what I found wrong with mine. After searching online I found a service manual for the receiver, this came in handy when diagnosing the problem. The first obvious thing was discoloration of the board around the IC 501, 601, and 701 Op-amps. When looking at the receiver from the front these are the three vertical NEC ICs to the right of the main amplifiers. Even with no load these amps get very warm. Sony failed to add any heat sink to these ICs so eventually they can de-solder themselves, specifically the 701 IC which is the one closest to the back of the unit. With mine I was able to slightly push the 701 more vertical, since it was leaning, and I believe it has helped it make a better contact. The protector circuit will kick in if it senses the Op-amps are shorted or not making contact. The best solution is to add some copper heat sink to these ICs, they already have screw slots for a heat sink. If they ever fail you will have to get new op-amps and re-solder them to the board. Hope this helps.

Powerdown after a few seconds


Amazing - I have exactly the same symptoms on my DMR-E55EB - noticed the dead machine on 19/11/6 - tried several powerdown resets, gained a few tens of seconds operation each time, and after around 6 attempts it died completely. Will open it up and have a look...
