Question about Sony STR-DE845 Receiver

Sound Problem with Sony STR-DE 845 receiver

I have a Sony STR-DE845 reciever and recently I've been experiencing problems with the sound for the first hour or so when I turn it on. Essentially when I first turn it on, I normally hear a click about a minute after I turn it on and then the sound goes dead. Then I hear another click and it comes back for a few seconds and then the sound disappears again, and this happens (off and on) sometimes for about an hour, before the system works normally (no interuptions). Can you please advice on what to do. I've had the system for about 8 or 9 years. I have everything hooked to it (cd, dvd and sat receiver) but currently only have two speakers hooked up to it (stereo mode).

    I am having the same problem. I was beginning to get paranoid, thinking that it was being controlled by some out side source or something. If there is a solution Sony needs to give its owner a heads up to solve it.

    I have the same problem. Holding the ON/OFF button on the receiver seems to solve the problem for some time. Which makes me believe that there is a loose connection somwhere inside, but am scared to open it up.

    Same problem, started with holding ON/OFF button then that didn't help.  Now I have to push in and sometimes push in and up or in and up with a little side force on the speaker selector switch. Of course sometimes to can just wait for forever

Check for bad solder connections and tighten any and all screws that hold the circuit boards to the chassis.

    Check for a loose connector that connects the board to the power button. It is on to the main front panel board. It's a 4-5 pin white connector. Once the front panel is removed you should see the 5 solder points without having to dig any deeper. This same fix likely applies to the STR-DE945 as well.

Unless your PC is Bluetooth capable, you'll need to get a Bluetooth device to make it so. This is just one of many such devices to select from. Amazon com Roker Ultra Mini CSR Bluetooth 4 0 Usb Adator for PC and... They vary in size and price. Shop around to find one that best suits your budget.

Sound problem with JBL Creature II


I had a problem with the speakers not working properly. The green lights lit, but the amount of sound coming from the speakers compared to that of the sub was much lower.
I decided to take it the speakers apart.
I found that the magnets on the speakers had moved forward slightly in the plastic cage they sat in. I pushed them back as far as they would go, and Hey Presto! working again!
I hope this helps someone!
