It's warning you that the fan is dead or clogged. Look at it and possibly clean out the dust bunnies.

Do you know how when you turn on the receiver that it produces a click one time and then the sound comes on? Well, mine is now producing rapid clicks and continues to do so in any mode I'm in. Can I fix...

Maybe if you diagnose the cause first.

Disconnect the speakers and try a different power source. If it keeps doing it you'll need a hands-on tech to look at it.

Sony STR DB-930 Receiver jumping into protector mode

I went through the amp/receiver and used small star washers on all the grounding screws I could find including the one securing the transformer, cleaned dust off all circuit boards, checked output transistors and fuses, all OK.

Re Assembled unit and it worked OK.

I will buy a fan and fan it to avoid sourcing heatsinks for the previusly suggested IC's.

Thanks for the technical help, sure solved my problem.
