Sony STR- DE315 Transformer Voltages

O.K. I got a schematic and to start I know to check the voltages coming out of the transformer. I cant find the voltages anywhere on the schematic. Does anybody know where I can find them, this is the first thing to check and I don't know what they are supposed to be.

    Now I just checked voltage again at the line in and it is 30V AC, what would pull that down? Yesterday it was 120V AC and no power from the standby board to the primary side of the main transformer.

  • democratsorg Jan 08, 2009

    Are you referring to the 2 large capacitors on the main board?

  • democratsorg Jan 08, 2009

    No power to either side of those caps. Would a bad transformer pull the line in voltage down, that is the first component after the line in connector and then the relay?

    where can I get the part # 1-450-358-11?

    o.k. i sent it fro my gmail account

  • democratsorg Jan 09, 2009

    Sorry, I did not know you were available right away. I removed CN801 from primary board. I checked standby transformer voltage at CNP802 and it was dead. There is no sound at the relay when I plug it in or push the power button on.

    When is a good time to get together online to help me?


  • democratsorg Jan 12, 2009

    Yes, I did checked it like you instructed and had power in and no power out. Where can I get the part # 1-450-358-11?

  • democratsorg Jan 13, 2009

    Great and thanks for the help, really. I am in U.S.A. and that's why we have a hard time to meeting you online. I need to know the voltage values for that transformer. I can not find them on the schematic. I think I will try to replace with a non sony part, because if it were available it would cost more than it is worth. This is my Mothers unit and she asked me to look at it for her.

  • democratsorg Jan 14, 2009

    I removed the transformer and checked the ohms. The primary was .271K and the secondary was 3.5.

  • democratsorg Jan 15, 2009

    12 volts AC or DC?

  • democratsorg Jan 19, 2009

    Did you get my last message? Is it 12 volts AC or DC?


  • democratsorg Jan 20, 2009

    I know primary is, what is the output AC or DC?

  • democratsorg Jan 21, 2009

    I researched that transformer and I think it is a 120vac to 12vac, does that look correct?

Yes primary smoothing capacitors it place just after the rectifires.

    we can assume that means no storage in condencers,working primary section.

    ok lets get start.please check output side for short circuit.any voltage regulator or regulating circuits are can be short circuit.specialy check fusabele resistors(bleeders) semiconductor fuses ,zener diodes rectifing diodes first.can you upload the smatic diagrm or mail it to i will deffinitly solve your problem.

    best regards

    ok no stanby transformer power means no standby circuit functioning.remoove cnp802 and check the input ac120 and output agin .is input there and no output its simple bad transformer...thats it.

    are you online.if you can call me please donot histitate to call me.any time my mobile number is 00940772532280.

    are you on line.

    very sory pal im living in sri lanka and i have no idea about this.but try original sony company or call dealer.also youcan replace this by another type transformer same voltage and same wattage.

    before doing this finalized the transformer burnt out.check the ohms of primary and secondary side.

    primary is to be very high ohms and secondary must be very low.


  • nuwan chinthaka
    nuwan chinthaka Jan 15, 2009

    ok try .

    i think its 12 volts .

  • nuwan chinthaka
    nuwan chinthaka Jan 20, 2009

    its AC .transformers are all AC.go ahed.

    and come with good results.

Flat sreen

Hello toyboy94,

I am going to assume that you have a flat screen CRT type unit the utilizes an Integrated High Voltage Transformer which uses a focus block (either internal or external to the transformer). Now by making this assumption, This makes your problem one of the focus block or the IHVT going bad. In order to check this problem I would use a high voltage probe to check the voltage on the anode of the CRT (20KV - 30KV) is expected. Once the anode voltage is checked look at the schematic to determine if the voltages are correct. If the voltage is not correct then check the voltages being supplied to the transformer and compare them to the schematic values, once this is done what you should begin to see is differences in the voltages in the set vs what is shown on the schematic. I would take a guess and say that the problem might be one of a bad focus block since that would cause the symptom you are seeing, but nothing beats troubleshooting the problem. if the IHVT is bad get the part number and order the part then replace it. You will need to have a voltage meter, an ohmmeter, an oscilloscope, a CRT analyzer, and a High voltage probe to troubleshoot this issue. If you do not know what these pieces of equipment are and what they do, I would advise calling your local TV shop and having them look at the set and determine the proper course of action, If you do know how to use these tools, the repair should go quite easy.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

My Sony receiver amplifier model number Str-de315 has just stopped working clicks on 2 lights come on but nothing else k

no front panel display means one of twot hings: either the power transformer is blown, or the main power fuse. If the main power fuse is blown, then there are likely to be shorted output transistors that will need to be replaced.

Sony STR-DE575 connected to 220V

Doubt the main pcb needs replacing, but the standby transformer would definitely go in that situation. Standby transformer wouldn't be that expensive, but no way to say that it's the only thing that is bad. It is also soldered in, so you would need to know how to do that to replace it, or bring it to someone who could. If you're staying long-term in Europe, it might just be better to buy something local so as to not run into this problem again.

Hi i m sanjay i m having sony colour television kv-2782me7 i found some problem in power supply section i m geting low voltages frm secondary output i want 135 ,25 ,8 , and -33dc voltages bt i m geting...

there is a possibility of a shorted turn of the flyback transformer. To test. short B-E together on the horizontal output transistor and connect 60W globe across C-E. measure voltage across lamp - if it comes up to 135v then you have a short either in the horizontal circuit or secondary circuit off the flyback transformer or even the transformer itself.

My RCA RS2620 has a shorted D820 and a burned R886. Can anyone recomend replacements / know the value of R 886 or have a schematic of this unit?

hi rnollett,

I just plugged my cousins RCA RS2620 into 220volt mains and burned the transformer because its originally 110 volt rating from canada. If you could please test your units transformer output voltages of RED-BLACK-RED wires so I can tell the technician to rewind the transformer usable to 220volt mains, he is asking me those output voltages and I dont have a clue.
Regarding your D820 and R886 if you have'nt yet found suitable replacements, in return, I will check the values of those parts here and I will send it to you.
Many thanks in advance.

The standby light flashes and the tv will not come on

check the power supply, its not giving out the required voltage output. if you cant repair a tv plse take it to a workshop, ask a technician to make sure that he checks the following components.
power diodes and transistor, fusable resistors around the power supply, and zener diodes.
he should make sure that an ht of 95-110 volts appears on the line transformer. later a transformer will produce various voltages to trigger other voltages to open up your tv. thanks

Green start light turns red and blinks 6 times. Is this a transformer problem? If so, do you know a part number and/or place to purchase the part?

The problem you have is with the G1 board. The 17 volts is not supplied. Do you have a multimeter and know how to trouble shott following a service manual schematic? if not call a pro to assist you as this could be the G1 board, but to be sure, you will need to troubleshoot and check some voltages and follow circuit flow using a schematic diagram. If you do know how to read, analize and follow schematics schematics contact me at If you do not, take the set to an authorized Sony repair center. Good Luck
