Question about Sony STR-DE545 Receiver

1 Answer

The STR-DE545 My sound works intermittantly and when it does is only for about 30 seconds before it goes silent. About 6 months ago i placed an xbox 360 on top of the unit and the xbox does produce alot of heat. Im not sure if the xbox info was important but thought i should mention. I checked all the speaker connections and they are solid. Also, since the time i origianlly bought it, the manual power button does not work. you can only turn it on/off with the remote.

Xbox won't stay on it goes off after a few seconds

Either the power for your Xbox is loose or starting to damage and needs replaced. The other issue might be if your xbox is old, it might simply just be giving out. Try buying a replacement power cord.

None of my wireless XBox 360 controlers will connect to to my XBox 360. I have tried replacing batteries, syncing it with the system, turning my system off then on again, removing any obstructions near the...

If the wireless controllers won't connect under any circumstances even with the Charge-and-Play Cable then you most likely have a problem with a board inside your 360, i think it's like the RF board or something, mind you, the C-P cord only forces through an electrical charge and does not force the controller and console to connect, it just works when your batteries are low, in the event that your console is faulty, you can purchase RF boards and replace them yourself (voids the warranty but takes 20 minutes) or send it into XBox HQ (gives you more warranty but takes like 6 months)

Try turning off the system and unplugging the control. Wait 30 seconds, reattach the control and turn on the system and test if it's working.

Hey Tafari, It's an overheating issue that is common in xbox 360 models made between a certain date range. I had the same problem a few months ago.

All you gotta do is contact Microsoft tech support and provide them with your serial number. They'll ask you a couple of questions and then they'll get you to ship them the 360. (They pay for shipping)

They'll try to repair it, but if your lucky like me, you might get a new xbox 360 with 1 month of xbox live for free.

Hope this helps. Worked for me, should work for you.
