    same problem. Out of the blue I now get a loud buzz rather than the radio. The radio can be heard in the background. It does not seem like a reception issue as it is the same volume on any station - very annoying.

SOURCE: No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475

I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

SOURCE: Centre speaker stops functioning

Is the audio for the center channel driven by its own amp? No other channels on it or affected?

Assuming you're not cranking it up to "11" to rattle the walls...

I think what you're hearing is the protection relay dropping out - removing power from the output stages of the amp when the amp thinks something is amiss. If it turns on OK after being OFF for a while and repeats the loop you probably have a heat issue.

A solid click OFF that is not resettable would possibly be a short in the speaker path - shorted speaker wire or speaker.

Check the amp to see if it was hot to the touch or getting warmer up to the point it clicked off.

Is it ventilated properly with no heat-producing components below it? Clean out its vents and make sure it can breath. If it has a fan make sure it's working and has good airflow.

SOURCE: working the Sony STR-DE475 5.1 Channels Receiver

It has a dedicated sub out. you need a phono connection on one end for the amp and the other end must have a compatable connection to your sub.

You will need a phono connection to the amp from your TV. You can utilise a scart lead that has phono outputs however a TV with audio outs (the red and white leads) is the default option.

SOURCE: Subwoofer hum from STR-DH800

That points pretty much to a bad shield on the cable. Have you tried another one? Another thing to try is to rotate the AC power cord on the sub (if it has one). Sorry, too lazy to look it up.

My Sony STR-DG500 wont turn on just clicks once and nothing.


Sounds like faulty psu (pwer suply unit) Amp is going into protection mode. Disconnected all speaker and av wires (only power) turn up volume and see if it stays on. If not psu, sounboard or volume function faulty. If on, connect one speaker L or R. Go to tuner mode to tuned radio station an listen for sounds. If on, connect speakers and av cables one by one and test each one on its own until amp switches off, Investigate from there were problem is. Make sure speakerwires is not shorting out.
