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.

Str-de545 sony not putting out sound to rear speakers

From page 46 (Troubleshooting)-

No sound or only a very low-level sound is heard from the rear speakers.

>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).

>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see pages 28-30).

>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 19).

>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 17).

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try

Phono input

I am not really familar with this receiver but almost all phonograph must go into a phono in. Due to the fact that a phonograph does not have whats called a pre amplifier. generally the receivers have a phono in and that input has an more sensitive amplifier cicuit in the input. That is why if you plug it in to something else unless it has a preamplifier the sound will be real soft. I think Radio Shack sells a amplifier you plug the Phonograph into one side and the other side into the receiver then you can use any input you choose.
