If all the speakers are connected ( at both ends)per the manual and the unit still goes into standby then one or more audio power out components is bad

Take out all of your speaker wires on amplifier and on speakers and rewire them all. it is a crossed wire. a stray wire from the negative side is contacting the positive terminal either on the amplifier side or speaker side so just make sure to redo them all and make nice good tight twists when connecting.

    i shouldve been more clear.

    dont rewire but just redo the ends from existing wires.

  • Chuck Feb 23, 2009

    if you have binding posts meaning you turn a screw to tighten the wires just make sure the wires dont show through the other side ( 1/8 inch tops) where it might hit the other binding post.

    another diagnosis is to make sure if unit is not defective by removing all speaker wires from back of unit. yes i did say all speaker wires. Now try to turn volume up and see if it is internal problem. If you get a protect this way this means the unit is in need of service or replacing

Sony STR DE835 receiver - no sound from speakers and headphone jack

The problem is in the audio output semiconductors, they have shorted causing the fuses to blow and it is in auto protect mode to prevent further damage. I recommend a professional to assess.

Brand new used 12 times-would not turn back on pulled cover and internal fuse was blown. shutoff procedure using on/off switch only. accessible from back fuse holder should have been used for cases...

if you're blowing fuses, there is a reason. the most prevalent reason for this is shorted speakers, while the final amp is supposed to be protected by fused speakers, many times they don't work fast enough to protect the amp. If this unit is brand new like you say, put the old fuse (blown one) back in and close the unit up, hopefully you haven't destroyed the tab that shows the case had been opened, this unit should be under warranty, take it back or send it back (with authorization) to where you bought it, don't tell them you opened up the case or you will void warranty. good luck

Speaker wires are touching in back or the ends are touching inside try cleaning any loose copper threads off the ports and blow them out, also check to see that all the positive and negative wires are properly run and not crossed (+ to + and - to -) if that dosent work you may have blown out the outputs on the receiver, there are a series of odd voltage and amperage glass tube fuses on the inside if this happens forget it the fix costs more than a new one. if you do find the fuses as soon as you replace them they will blow out again in seconds. Notorious for this problem. been there done that.

Think i turned the volume too loud now when i go to turn it on it just clicks and turns itself into standby would be gratefull if anyone could help i have a denon avr-1507 thanks

Most decent receivers have a fuse to protect them from sudden overload. I would check and see if you can find one. It may involve opening the cabinet, but I bet you'll find a blown fuse somewhere.

Stuck protector mode

find out why the fuse blew in the first place.the protector is just PROTECTING the main circuits of the receiver.the receiver turns on just to confirm the power circuit is OK.
have it checked by an electronic engineer.

Our sub woofer stopped working

Hello Levelle,

Fuses are designed to be protection devices, that is, to destroy themselves in order to protect an electronic circuit. Now, when brand new replacement fuses blow, it could mean two things: 1.- The replacement fuses are below the specified rating (you can find the rating by reading around the end metal caps of the original fuse), or
2.- The internal circuitry of the unit is damaged and is causing the fuses to blow immediately.

There is not much you can do yourself, unless you are technically inclined and know how to test the unit for internal damage. If you are not technically inclined, your best bet is to have the unit inspected to asses the damages and the cost of repair if you elect to do so.
Hope this helps. Let me know if we can be of further assistance.

Protection error

Your speakers or the wiring to the speakers shorted out, and a fuse inside of your receiver is blown. You can purchase a new unit or attempt to replace the fuse yourself.

Stuck in protect mode

Speakers shorted out, blew a fuse. Replace the unit or (cross your fingers and) open up the box and find the blown fuse.

Make sure that you are not asking too much from your system by having a "heavy" bass contour, or processing externally that amounts to the same thing...accordianman
