Dark display on Sony STR-DE597 receiver

Hi,

Some time ago, I took the unit out of the cabinet for cleaning. When I put it back, I found that the tuner readout display was dark - nothing whatsoever. It seems to work fine otherwise, but is pretty difficult to use like this.

It's probably not worth taking in for repair, but I also hate to have to replace it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to revive it??

Thanks!!

Check for bad solder connections on the display itself. If none use a voltmeter and check dc voltage on the first and last pins of the display. should be about 20v dc. If you don't have the dc voltage check for a bad transistor or resistor in the power supply. It could also be other thing but this is where you should start.

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up. Thanks.


The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

Sony STR-DE597P - Centre Sound Problem


HI...
You have a "ground loop" problem.
It's related to the AC wiring in your place.
I dont know if you have a Walmart or Home Depot type store near you but,if you do, go to one and ask for a AC circuit tester. Should be a 3 prong unit with LEDs. Plug one into where you have the stereo and see what it reads.
You might have lost a ground connection in the AC outlet
