I just moved and can't find my manual. Right now, I have 5 speakers hooked up, but the rear speakers are louder than the front speakers and I can't get anything but a "hum" from the middle speaker. Help! Thanks!

The manual says it thinks there is a short circuit on the amplifier output side. If it still says Protect after disconnncting all the speakers wires there is an internal problem. Take it to a hands-on tech.
If the problem disappears, you had a short. Attach speakers one at a time to isolate the cause.
Sony receivers in this series do a series of tests on the integrity of the audio path before allowing voltage to be applied to the output transistors.
First make sure the speaker selector is set to "off". Test it again. If it still does the same thing then:
If you are comfortable removing the cover, take out the four side screws and the screws on the rear top of the cover. Look at the volume control and make sure the ribbon cable is firmly inserted in to the slot at the back of the control. The next part is a little more involved. There are two ribbon cables on the circuit board on the front of the face plate. One is close to the front, the other is not. You can remove the face plate and check thoes cables, but you must remove the screws from the bottom of the face plate and the one screw holding the volume control in place.
If this is all in place, I recommend sending it in to Sony for repair.
the clicking is a power suplie overload some output amp is with problems and shutdown after overheat, when you tap is bad connection inside, normaly is related with sound off after 15min. needs to be checked by tech. to ensure perfect operation.
