After owning the system for 6+ years now, i just stopped working. It is connected to my PC and LCD-TV on 5.1 input channel. I was listening to music, when I heard a 'strong click' (may be spark) sound (most likely inside the reciever) and there was no more suound from speakers.
I will explain further here the situation.
There is display as normal on the reciever. I can select different inputs from function knob...but no sound on any channel.
There is no sound in speakers, but subwoofer has sound, I can feel that by raising the volume.
Is it a something which can be reset? or fuse ? protection mode?
thanks for reply
There are 4 blue relays in the unit that has solder points that will crack over time.
It´s fairly "easy" to re-solder them and viola, it´s OK again.
open the cover (unscrew and take of the hood) and locate the 4 blue relays.
Unscrew and remove the bottom service plate and locate the soldering points for the 4 relays.
Each relay has 6 solderings, 4 in one "groop" and 2 in one "groop" look especially at the "2-groop" these are the ones most likely to crack over time ( for me 12 years or STR-DB840 no sound in speakers - 3436d08.jpgc="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/3436d08.jSTR-DB840 no sound in speakers - e6f7344.jpg36d08.jpg" class="h_mi" />
Re- solder. Best of luck //Ronnie Stockholm

Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps
make sure sub is working .Power it up , remove sub RCA jacks from receiver .Gently tap on RCA with fingers.You should here a hum when touched .You can also try audio from TAPE REC OUT .If you dont get audio .Check setting at sub .If it working okay check setting at receiver and or sub level at receiver
Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV? You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output. You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV. But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound. But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
your RCA on your tv is acting like its in mono..it may be a problem with the jacks. alternatively..you can buy a splitter and split teh side that sounds stronger (L) or (R) with a male to 2 female spliter out of the tv then back into l/r input on your reciever... It wont give you surround stereo...but it will soudn a whole lot better.
The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!
