Question about Sony STR-DE885 Receiver
I just noticed that my Sony speakers/amp (for TV/dvd etc) have a constant, low pitched sound through them.....i have tried unplugging everything bar the FM tuner and the speakers and i still get the sound/distortion. Pretty sure it isnt all the speakers as i have tried the two rear ones which i hardly ever use.....seems to be something from the amp?? I have tried a factory reset on that but no luck.... Can anyone suggest what could be causing it and how i can fix it! Thanks
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.

make sure the FM antenna is connected and in a good place then check to see if the A-B speaker selector is selected properly.check to see that the sound field is set properly, My 800 allows for several different options and if your speaker wires are reversed or not in the correct position front left at front left etc it will not send the signal to those speakers. try using the TEST TONE feature if you have one it will send a signal to each speaker in sequence (LF< C< RF<in order) it will go all the way around to see if they are connected properly, that way you can tell if they are connected at all or in the wrong spot on the back interface. I dont know if that is what you meant by AUTO CAL, but that is a seperate feature when you use the connected mic to determine range, height and distance to the position in the room you are most likely to be seated for optimal sound.

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.

hi. i have a sony amplifier. i plug the speakers in like normal. i turn it on and the right side speeker works fine. but you half to crank it up all the way just to barely hear the left speeker. we switched speakers and its still the same effect. we think its the amp itself. we tried our balance settings. it was fine. but right now its just playing one speaker louder then the left one. can anyone help me?
