Question about Sony STR-DE197 Receiver

1 Answer

Remote control won't work

Recently the remote control for my Sony STR-DE 197 stereo receiver stopped working.  Put brand new batteries in and still no response.  I also tried programming two universal remotes and neither of them would work.  Makes me wonder if the problem might be in the receiver itself and not the remote.  I also followed the instruction manual to "reset" the memory in the receiver and that didn't solve the problem

    Actually I fixed it.  Before giving up all hope I took the batteries out of the remote and put them in the "wrong way".  Of course nothing happened, so I put them back in the "right way" and tried it - alas, it worked!  No idea how it happened - reversing the batteries must have unclogged some electrical log-jam within the remote.

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.

Need remote control programming codes


I assume you have purchase a universal remote control...if the programming codes for your Sony STR-DE675 receiver is not listed in the remotes code guide, then you purchased the wrong type universal remote. Make sure you get a universal that does stereo equipment or check eBay for a reasonable price on the original.

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

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.
