Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

1 Answer

My receiver is in protect mode.

Hi! On Friday I left home, receiver was in order, today I came back and turned on my receiver, but it wont start. It displays protect mode and then it turns off again. I removed all speakers and cleared memory. Nothing changes, it still starts in protect. Can I do something myself or do I need to go to SONY's dealer to get it fixed.

The units in the protect mode because the Microprocessor detects a large current being drawn by the amp. section of the reciver. This is a solid state unit and there are no user replaceable parts inside this unit. Unless you know how to trouble shoot sloid state devices then you should seek a pro to assist you with this repair. GOOD LUCK

My RX-V2095 Yamaha receiver won't power up.


Wont power up, or stuck in "protect mode"? Unplug the unit & let it sit for a couple hours, then plug back in & listen for a "click" a turn (power supply relay energizing.) If no lights & no click, the first place to check is the mains fuse. If the unit is under warranty - take to an authorized facility & they will take care of it for you.

I left my tk 480 in my truck and it was about 100 degrees today. i turned it on and then i turned it back off and now it wont turn back on. does anybody know why this happened?


It sounds like it has gone into a protection mode. Pull the battery for a few minutes, or until the radio is at room temperature and then try again.

Battery is too low to turn the engine over. Get it jumped and drive it to AutoZone. They will run a free diagnostic and tell you whether it's the battery or the alternator.

No home theater sound


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Protect mode shuts down the receiver


If this happens only when connecting the receiver, chech the receiver cable. If the cable is fine, receiver connector at the back of receiver is faulty.

Amp keeps switching off


There is a problem with one or both of the audio amp circuits. The amp is going into a protect mode as to protect and save your speakers. Sorry but there is no simple fix. this will need to go to the shop to be diagnoised. Good Luck
