Question about Sony STR-DE595 Receiver
I hook my laptop up to the receiver using a "y" cord from the headphone port on my laptop, and it makes a kinda "buzzing" noise in the speakers. If i try to play music it plays faintly but the buzz is too loud. I dont think its the laptop because i put it on another receiver and it worked fine, i tried hooking it to different inputs(cd,phono,video2..) but same issue. It did work for a few years until last week so im assuming something is wrong with the receiver. let me know if there is anything i can try before takin git in. thanks
I have this receiver and my audio is a optic cable to my cable box. When I play a dvd my sound works great my I can't watch cable. There is no sound. It has always worked untill I finished a movie and tried to switch to cable and then there was no sound. Can anyone help?

You gots ta isolate the problem. Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works. If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced. If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight. Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound. Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.

Testimonial: "Great advice. Will check and update ASAP. tX."
first- is the tuner set to mono or stereo? if stereo, stop using the analog rca jacks and use an optical (toslink) cable to transfer your audio to your receiver. almost all cd players have this output and the same with the receiver. better still, if you are using a late model cd or bluray, and your receiver has hdmi inputs use those as they will transfer both audio and video with one cable.

SOURCE: Loud buzzing sound in the
The buzzing is caused by the power source of the receiver : the filtering capacitors from the power lines to the amplifier circuits have aged and have started to dry, lose their capacity so the current is no longer filtered correctly so the ripple from the AC mains is stronger and it's passed on to the amplifiers where it became audible.
Keeping the capacitors under constant tension will help them regenerate somewhat, but you will have in the end to replace them. A simple job, just be careful at the ratings of the capacitors when you get their replacements.
