Question about Sony STR-DE915

Sony Receiver Won't Power On

My home was struck by lighting. BUT I had all my electronics unplugged including my Sony Receiver (str-k660p). After the storm when I plugged it all back in my receiver no longer powers on at all. I checked the fuse and it still looked good but I replaced it just the same. Still no luck. Is it dead? I still am baffled how it happened since it was completely unplugged.

    The only thing I can think of is the rear speakers run near the cable in wall. If maybe somehow it jumped from the cable to the speaker wires and back to the receiver. All my speakers and existing wiring still work. I tested them independently. There is no burn marks or melting anywhere I can see on the unit or inside.

    Everything else in my entertainment unit works fine. Including my DVR which was hooked to the cable at the time.

Did you have any Rca Cables running to a Tv or anything by accident cuz it could run thru those, Lighting is a powerfull substance, if it hit the house then it could of ran into the cable to the tv an went out, thats wierd this is the 1st time ever hearing this, try looking in side to see any burn markings, an take a wiff cuz you can tell if somthings fried by the smell of it, if it is then its most likly dead

Unit won't turn on. There's power to the outlet but the reciever just won't light up! Sony STR-DE 197 It's only a couple of years old and shows no damage.


Failure of the the power source. To see if it's fixable the receiver will have to be opened and the power board tested . This job requires at least a basic experience in electronics - if you don't posses it all you can do is to look for a burned fuse or damaged capacitors. For them follow this

Power out rms- 4 o 8 homs?


I can see why you're asking for help on this. It almost seem this unit has been 'disappeared' as far as online information is concerned. Even Sony has nothing on it.

I founs some articles and For Sale posts:

http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-electronics-Sony-STR-4800SD-Stereo-Receiver-135-OBO-W0QQAdIdZ243602516
"Sony's STR-4800SD receiver was extensively, and positively, reviewed in Stereo magazine's Fall '77 issue. In their introduction, they found the 4800SD bettered its published f.m. sensitivity specs "by a wide margin...it has exceptionally smooth frequency response, very low distortion(especially in the midband), and excellent quieting. No exotic claims are made for the power amp section, either (35 watts/channel,15.4 dBw at 0.2% THD). But our tests indicate much more capability than that, and a distortion of only one-tenth that spec."

The power consumption figure shown in a photo below says "145W", which would be consistent with a 35 watt amplifier.

Sony STR-D460Z receiver


I have had this problem several times with Sony receivers in the past. The issue may be frustrating but these receivers are idiot proof. It is doing you a favor by tripping and not setting your house on fire as well.

Explanation:
Many things like improper wire crossing or touching due to too much of the insulation stripped off can cause this. Thunder storms and power surges as well have been known do this to Sony receivers.

Solution:
Unplug the unit and remove the cover. Look for any blown fuses as sometimes this is the problem. Take the fuse to a Radioshack to find new ones. However, it is likely you will need to take it in for repairs. This usually costs around $100. Find a local electronics repair shop in your area ( "TV Reapir in the yellow pages") or call Sony to send it to them.


I hope the latter works.
