Re: my reciever doesnt power on

Hello, Drewske! I have ONE question: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DISCONNECT ALL OF THE SPEAKERS? DOES it turn on? Drew, IF it turns-on with no speakers attached, then 1) you have a problem with one or more of your speakers [UNLIKELY] or 2) you have a short in one (or more) of the speaker wires (LIKELY). Try this first, then let us know what happens.

Does it click at all when you press power? Sounds like the power transformer may be bad. There is a thermal fuse inside of the transformer that can go open and cause a problem like that.

I have a sony str de 325 receiver....what sub woofer will go with it and where do you plug it into the receiver?? Thanks

You will need a powered sub, one that has a built in amp. It will also need speaker terminal type inputs. Use the B channel to send signal to the woofer. Since the audio from the B channel is full range, use the crossover on the sub to determine which frequencies you want to hear. I would start at 100Hz and go up and down from there. Use the gain to adjust the volume in relation to the other speakers. The sub volume will be affected by the master volume.

I need the code to input to a universal remote for my Sony STR-DE325. Please help.

I just got mine to work with the STR-DE325. I programmed my Dish receiver remote following the reference in the back of the Dish receiver manual. I missed the comment at the beginning of the receiver codes at first which stated to enter a 2 before setting a tuner/amplifier code on aux. I then used the first code listed which was 683 and it works. So it was hold aux on the remote, wait until the aux was enabled by blinking, enter 2, enter 683 for the Dish remote and enter pound. E.

When I turn the unit on it will stay on for a few seconds then goes to protect mode. any ideas?

See page 17.

Disconnect all speakers and see if that helps. Shorted speakers or wiring will cause this. If it still does it a trip to a hands-on tech is called for.

I can not turn on the receiver with the remote control, turning it off works. What can I do? Please Thank you in advance,

Must have a bad remote control then . Did something spill onto the remote near the power on button? Short of getting a new remote you could try poping thr remote control apart and cleaning it out with a mild detergent. Larry's Electronics

When iturn on my Sony STR-DE325 it goes into protect mode

Try disconnecting all of your speakers, and then turn on you unit. If you have a defective speaker, or a short in your wires, your unit will go into protect mode. If your unit seems ok with the speakers disconnected, then turn unit off, hook up one of the speaker leads and try it. This way you can isolate the problem.......

Good Luck,

Hold in power button until unit "clicks." Takes about 20 seconds.
