Problem solved. For all those who have this problem and have checked speaker cables are not shorted etc first - here is the solution. Turn amp upside down and remove the 6" (approx) square metal plate that is screwed on to the base. With the front of the unit facing you, the circuit board board on the left (Input board) is where you'll find two ICs labelled IC501 and IC701. Look carefully at the solder joints and you will hopefully see they are darker and grottier than most of the other shinier solder joints elsewhere on the board. Re-solder all the legs of each IC - 15 pins on each. You may need to remove the old solder first. Check for other near-by components that also have bad looking solder joints and re-solder those too. The two ICs are part of the protection circuitry and they appear to get pretty hot causing part-melted and part to completely broken solder joints. People who have the symptom of permanently in Protection mode should also be able to solve their issue with this solution. Hope this helps somebody out there. Cheers Dave

This amp wwhen turned on, dosplays 'PROTECTOR' on teh display, what is this telling me?

Disconnect all the speakers and unplug it for 5 minutes. Then turn it back on without any speakers plugged in. If it doesn't say protector, then you either have a shorted out speaker or wire. The amp is in protection mode which is designed to keep it from burning up. If it still says protection, then it will need to be repaired as it is too late.

Blown Stereo Receiver

If the output transistors are shorted they cause burns on the resistors and even even blow the AC fuse and your receiver will not come ON. I used to enjoy fixing, these AMPs this was many years ago. Any how, repairing this unit will be more than a $100.00 my advice to you is BUY a NEW 1.

Good luck

What fuses does the sony str-de535 need

I beleive it is a 6.3amp gma. It will be printed on the circuit board next to the fuse holder and on the fuse itself. If it is open(blown) you probably will need to replace a set of the output transisters (mp1620 and mn2488). DO NOT use a slow-blow fuse this will cause more damage to your receiver.
