Question about Sony STR-DE485 Receiver

1 Answer

Sony STR DE485 (Audio Video Reciever)

My right audio channel is not outputting any sound. It is not the speaker or cable. Does anyone know what the problem could be and possible ways of repairing it, including easy dismantling instructions. Cheers, Fabrics

    I will check it out. Would this resistor be on the main board or the power supply board?

    I was thinking that it would be a switch stuck in the relay which switches the front speakers on. In my experience, relays are usually the first thing to go with hardware. But it is hard to test this without removing the relay.

Your problem must be caused by the right channel (rear, front whatever..)side feeding resistor on the power supply.

Str-gx800es sony receiver problem- right channel speaker sound is 'static', low and distorted. I have checked checked all speaker and output/input source cable connections with no luck. All left channel...

If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

I have set up a BOSE Accustimass System with my STR de485 receiver. How do I adjust the treble/bass?

if u are using bose speaker system then remember one thing. go to speaker setup and select all the speakers as large not small. then only u will get a good tone. bose speakers will handle the output power of ur amplifier.
u can only adjust the bass and treble of ur frond Channel speakers. for that
select multi channel surround sound and the increase and decrease the bass and treble

My Sony STR-DE135 reciever has sever distortion on the right channel speakers (A&B) no matter which input is selected. I can not find any obvious fault on the board. Any tips to help me fix it?

It sounds like your receiver may have a damaged output IC. I'm assuming that you've already tried a known good speaker on the right channel but if not, that would be a good idea. Also check and verify that the speaker wire is not damaged and that the terminals at each end are securely fastened.

Good Luck,
