Question about Sony STR-DB930 Receiver

Sony DB930 - Rear right speaker (terminal connector?) not working

I am an audio neophyte. My rear right speaker is not working after very carefully packing and shipping my Sony receiver for a move. Checked the speaker and speaker wire to other connections and they both work. Leads me to believe it's the receiver connector for the right rear speaker. Any ideas what may have happened? Is this (easily) fixable? Would you do it yourself (as a neophyte)  or take it somewhere? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

These receivers have a common fault with the relay on the amplifier board. If you open the lid, the rear amplifier PCB is on-top in the centre. The relay is in the middle of the board. It should be easy enough if you have a multimeter to check the contacts are closing correctly, if not then replace it, the specs are printed on the side. If you are not confident then don't try it, these are powerful amplifiers with +/-60v DC rails. 120v DC can do you some damage if you get it wrong!!

You can open the reciever and see if there is anything visual. If there are any parts failures these would not be visable. You can check to see if there are any blown fuses.

You may have to give the reciever out to an experienced service tech to troubleshoot it to find out where the failure has occured. These recievers can be complex to service.

Check all of your speaker connections... usually the PROTECT cuts in when speaker wires get crossed or you have blown a speaker.

this PROTECT message also shows if the amp chip(s) have blown in the unit

The cables for you In-Car stereo are as follows:

Black - Earth to to the chassis.
Yellow - Live that should be connected directly to the car battery and not the igniton.
Red - To an accessory terminal in the fuse block.
Blue / White stripe - To remote antenna (if fitted)
White / Black stripe - Front left speaker (negative terminal)
White - Front left speaker (positive terminal)
Grey / Black stripe - Front right speaker (negative terminal)
Grey - Front right speaker (positive terminal)
Green / Black stripe - Rear left speaker (negative terminal)
Green - Rear left speaker (positive terminal)
Purple / Black stripe - Rear right speaker (negative terminal)
Purple = Rear right speaker (positive terminal)

That covers all off the cables that you should have with the car stereo.

STR-DB930 Receiver


Hi. I have a similar problem, where the rear and more recently, the centre speakers cut in and out. The relays that connect them click on and off rapidly, like morse code! Annoying, especially losing the centre, as in a 5.1 mix the centre carries most of the dialogue. The voices will be very hard to hear without the centre speaker. I tipped my STRDB930 over, and removed the slotted panel under neath. This gains access to the under side of the bottom circuit board. There, you will find the solder joints of the 3 bottom relays, the fourth being mounted on a narrow strip of board above this. Shine a torch through the top onto the blue relays, and you will see where the solder joints are. I noticed that 4 of these joints looked like they were broken, so I re-soldered them. The centre seems ok now, although it's too early to tell. My receiver still clicks, but if that is comming from the relay mounted higher up, I don't know how to gain access to this easily. Hope this helps.

Connecting To Auto Harness


Hi,

Most Sony head units follow the ISO standards in its wiring and connector pinouts.

A Sony CDX-S2000 would be using the below listed wiring:
Yellow - +12V Constant Power (such as the + terminal of your battery)
Red - +12V Switched Power (such as the ACC of the IGN switch)
Blue - Power Antenna
Blue/White - External Power Amp Turn-on trigger
White - Left Front Positive Speaker Wire (LF+)
White/Black - (LF-)
Gray - Right Front Positive Speaker Wire (RF+)
Gray/Black - (RF-)
Green - Right Rear Positive Speaker Wire (RR+)
Green/Black - (RR-)
Purple - Left Rear Positive Speaker Wire (LR+)
Purple/Black - (LR-)

In some models, Sony would have several versions of the connectors depending on the region the unit was intended for use, 10. 16 and 18 pins. The connector (loom) would have to match what your version has. They are readily available from most auto stereo stores and on line. You can try here or here .

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
