Look up a data sheet on the audio output IC and get the pin out labels for the pins on it. Then check to see if you have all the right voltages especially at the power supply and ground pins. Good luck.

How do I set the. Time

With the radio off, press and hold the ENTER (time set) Key DOWN. On the right side, there are 4 buttons with arrows on them. The inside ones set the timezone that you are in, the outside two will set the time. I just checked this on my ICF-SW100 and it works for me.

Usually that is caused by a bad amp IC. Normally on this model, you would just replace the entire main pcb.

Changing the type of fuses in your receiver will not change your sound quality at all.

Maybe the Preamp driver IC, looks like a car audio ic on the main board.
Often with age the heat generated by the ic will destroy the solder.Makes it look like lava rock in bar-b-que grill. Which
causes an open circuit in the preamp driver to the audio power
Simply resolder them, most often restores audio. Should have
a bottom removalble cover.
If not, a fuse normally blows if ic or channel is shorted. Check if
display will say Power off, Protect, etc. That means there is a problem with a channel.
Most Sony receivers use darlington transistors, they short easily !!
I am an old school component level service tech, I think I do have a schematic for this model and many others.

My Sony STR-DE685 Receiver out of the blue now has loud hum when using the tuner only. All other inputs work great without any issues. Seems like a filter burned out. If that is the case, does...

In receivers, there are different power supplies or power supply outputs for the receiver and amplifier sections so you can have separate failures with one area not affecting the other. From your description, I think the (probably lower voltage) section for the receiver has either lost a cheap filter capacitor or a regulator IC. Neither of these are expensive parts but I can't know what labor costs in your area might be. An honest tech shouldn't ask more than ~$100 US for that kind of repair.

Sony ICF-7600 7Band power adapter polarity question

Hello Xiar, Yes the center pin is positive. You have to use any regulated 6volt DC adapter.It may be a good ideea to put a 6v regulator (xx7806) after the adaptor bridge. I have a icf7600 fm/mw/sw 7band receiver too and I`m looking for the service manual or the pcb layout for it. If it by chance you have it mail me at Regard, Alex
