Sony Receiver makes popping noise in speakers

Hello Folks,
Please...tell me what keeps mappening to these things. I'm only second Sony in 5 years and the problem of popping in the speakers has come back.
I've narrowed down the possible sources with the following steps:

  1. tried all source options, even those without signals
  2. plugged in headphones
  3. tried A and B channels
The noise is a faint pop kind of like you would heard with a record player, but it occurs every 30 seconds or so. You can't hear it when there is music or action on a dvd, but during quiet times, it is evident...and right in my ear :)

My system is the previous generation of this system

It sounds like the jack just needs to be resoldered is all. Open it up and resolder it. Simple, yet beautiful.

SOURCE: sony receiver made pop noise

It sounds like the output ic's may have failed, because of the complexity of system I would have a professional come and look at the unit for an evaluation, chances are he will need to take it back to the shop for service.

I would recommend checking your speakers polarity ( + on the + - on the - ). Also check to make sure the wires are not touching each other where they connect to the speaker or amp. Also check your input connections if you are not using HDMI or Optical. Worst case is you have to send it in to get serviced. Hope this helps

I have a Sony AV model str-dh520. The protection circuit keeps coming on then shuts down. I tried unplugging all the speakers from the unit but still protection circuit is still activated and shuts down....

Hello there friend,
Go here at Sony for some ideas to try when PROTECT shows on your machine.,66/p/41901,43145,92877,44396/

It seems the main amplifier chip / circuit may be overheated or short circuited and is now permanently faulty and need replacing Generally means desoldering the chip and replacing.

Stereo makes pop noises out of speakers and when i tap on the receiver it pops and crackles what would cause this i just put new wires 16 gauge thought it would fix the problem but it doesn't what is goin...

Sounds like bad solder connections somewhere on the main board!
If the unit is a few years old or more connections break down from "heat" and use.Try resoldering and/or take to a good shop for repair!

The reciever comes on and shows a radio station than goes into protect mode

this usually indicates a fault has tripped and something is shorting out.

check your wire terminals make sure a strand of cooper wire isn't wrapped around something

next if there are buttons to turn the speakers off do so, then check to see if you can turn the surriound sound can be set to "stereo" in that second before it locks up.

If you can eliminate the 5 speaker terminals from being a problem then thats a good step but fir unstance if the second you push speaker A to on it locks up then you know the problem is in the circuitry.

This happened to me with an Onkyo receiver about 5 years ago the cost to repair was $180and took 3 weeks.You will have to decide if its worth putting money into the unit. If you paid lets say $300 and its 5 years old you would be better served by upgrading to a new unit that wll boast ,ore modern features.

Also as a last resort twist the inputs on the back of the unit just to verify that an RCA connector has not come unsoldered. Another quick check would be uncrew the 6-10 screws that hold the top on. Look for something that is loose in there. I had a sonance amp that sounded bad when you shaked it and all it was was a fuse that popped out of its holder.

I have the same exact problem as didierb


Thanks for using FixYa. You can try and reset the receiver by Unplugging it for 2 minutes and then plug it back in. Also make sure that the speaker wires are not shorted and there are no burnt components on the control board of the receiver (If you have disassembled the unit you'll be able to see the burnt components).
If the problem still persists, after checking the above things then please describe the issue more clearly and also tell me what all things have you tried to fix the issue.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks Rylee

Onkyo digital reciever has poping noise when in dolby sound

I have the same reciever, and had the same problem.  Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings.  These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods.  Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.
