Cant get equalizer to work with my receiver

Yes when I try to hookup my adc soundshaper two mark 3 equalizer to my sony str-de 197 receiver it doesnt work.Is it because the receiver doesnt have any tape monitor buttons?I had it hooked up before to an older 70s sanyo receiver which had monitor buttons and it worked fine.But that receiver quit working.So now im trying to get it to work with my new sony but with no luck yet.

This might work fish76, The EQ needs a in & out source to operate correctly? If you have audio device connected to an aux input disconnect that & connect the EQ to that audio device & then plug the EQ to the Sony receiver AUX input. The tape monitor is the most important source for hooking up an EQ device, so you are very limited on a total receiver or amp tonal connection source. The bottom line is you can only use the EQ if another audio source to plug into it & the EQ plugs to your pre-amp input on the back of your rec or amp

Unit won't turn on. There's power to the outlet but the reciever just won't light up! Sony STR-DE 197 It's only a couple of years old and shows no damage.


Failure of the the power source. To see if it's fixable the receiver will have to be opened and the power board tested . This job requires at least a basic experience in electronics - if you don't posses it all you can do is to look for a burned fuse or damaged capacitors. For them follow this

Sony STR DE 197 Reciever with No Sound


I have the same unit. My best recommendation would be to remove all speaker wiring, and try new wiring with another pr of speakers,since the "outdoor " speakers were rained on. the protect mode that the unit went into sounds like it did because the speaker outputs were shorted due to the rain, so ensure that the speaker output terminals are not shorted and dry...also see if output is still availalable at the headphone jack...if it is, the pre-amp section is still good , in which case the protect mode and no volume output out of the speaker jacks may mean that youve blown the ouput trasnsistor finals.
I hope this helps.

Getting the best out of my Sony STR DE-475


Yes, it would downgrade.


Simply run an HDMI cable to the LCD from the DVD player. Now, use the digital audio output of the DVD player to run to the receiver. I know the Sony has an optical input which i recommend over the coaxial input as the optical cable doesnt waste any energy as a medium transferring sound since its only light.

Remote control won't work


Could need a new ir sensor or repair solder connections on the display (ir) board. You can check that the remote is putting out a signal by viewing it with a camcorder, turn the camera on look through the viewfinder and point the remote at it push a button. If it is working you will see a flashing light on the remote.

Equalizer connections


Usually you hook your equalizer between the pre out and main in RCA jacks and then open the connection between the pre and main with a switch. If your unit doesn't have pre out/ main in jacks then I have seen it done by putting your equalizer between the tape in and tape out jacks and then select that tape function on your front panel. The tape out goes to eq. in and the eq. out goes to tape in. Good luck.

Remote Doesn't control stero


Blinking doesnt always mean that the IR transmitter is working in the remote.
Check a couple-few of the online remote dealers you may be able to get one cheap.
