Clicking Problem with a Receiver Sony STR-DE897

I saw the other post but I've isolated my problem down to a specific part / Relay and I need to replace either the Speaker PWB or the relay itself. I can force the clicking by taping on the one of the two relays. The other seems to be ok.

Do you know where I can find or order the PWB Part #1-861-284-11 or the offending relay OSA-SS-212DM3?

    I wish I had the schematics.. *Sigh

    But the Relay circuit would be RY2880 and RY2881

    This is the Speaker PWB for the Front Speakers A and B

    Please mention Relay circuit number like RY101 or some thing to check its Sony part number and intimate speaker board name as well.
    Do you have schematics of STR-DE897 receiver?

My dad has a 7.1 home theater speaker system, and I've toyed with the STR-DE897 receiver to get all of the channels to work, but I can only get the 5.1 to work, any idea how to get the 7.1 to work?

It needs to be encoded on the media such as a DVD movie or CD - it should say 7.1 surround recorded. I'm assuming you have all seven speakers and sub-woofer hooked up, too?

Clicking sound from unit occsanially

clicking sound? most receivers resort to this trying to determine what the input source is, and mainly if they are trying to determine if it is a analog or digital input signal, try setting the input source switch to AUTO if available, this way it will recognize the signal and switch to that input mode.
