Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
There is no sound from stereo speakers and it was blinking "Protect" manual says it is caused by a short. I disconnected all other units and the speakers and TV and it still blinks PROTECT. Is this a throw away that costs more to repair than to buy a new one. Is it likely the silicon grease washers on the output transistors? I understand that is a lot of labor and not worth fixing. What is your thoughts?
With all speaker wires disconnected and still showing the protect message, the short is internal. This is a rather common failure for these units. The output transistors are shorted themselves. These are relatively simple to replace and run about $15 each. Any service shop that repairs audio can fix this easily. Usually, once the outputs are replaced, you can get many additional years of service from the unit. Yes, it is worth it (in my opinion).
