Sony SA-VA 100 won't turn on

I had my Sony speakers in storage for about 5 years. Just pulled them out and tried to turn them on, but they don't power up. Called sony but no help there as they stopped making them. Any ideas out there?

    yeah, I tried that but no go. Funny thing is that it took you less time to come up with it than it took Sony!

    As for repair, I can't find anyone in my area to do it. c'est la vie!

You can try a factory reset.

Push and hold down Dolby NR, stop and disc 7 buttons, then push power.

Otherwise it looks like $60 to $100 repair bill. These are not the most repair freindly units.

Good Luck.

Where Can I Get a Cheap Remote for a Sony AVD_K800P. I Paid $10 Dollars for the Sony AVD_K800P . and I would like to get a Remote that works with it That Can Turn up The Rear Speakers , and Work Vol

I know of a Sony brand learning remote that will do it but, it sells at Target for $29.99. I have 2 of them and works great for all equipment however, the problem with that is that you actually need the original remote to assign keys or buttons on this one. It does have factory settings for various Sony equipment programmed from the factory. I'm looking in the manual now to see if that player is listed. I can't find the actual model but, there are several Sony model surround amps that it will operate with the code listed. This remote is only a couple of years old and runs all my oddball stuff I couldn't get remotes or codes for. Sony models usually have settings for their own stuff built in. The remote is called a RM-VL610 Integrated Remote Commander if you're interested in trying it. It works my old Sony stereo 60 cd changer unit with no problems. This could help unless you order the original remote in which I can help find if you need but, would probably cost more.

The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows.
(not necessarily in this order)
These are what are called Component Video inputs and is one of the way that HD capable equipment connect to your television. It will not get true HD picture but this input will provide you with a crisper clearer picture.

Good Luck and Happy New Year.....

Low voltage can create different trouble, sometimes a cpl at the same times. Call your insurance company and they might help you to build a direct request to the electrical distribution company (thats how it is here in canada) No simple tricks for that, experimented technician gave up in 33% on such situations. Not an easy trouble....

I have no picture and light flashes 5 times

If you pull the right side out (as you look at the front), get you ear down to the fan exhaust area and turn the set on. If you do not hear the fan turn or feel air being blown out, then you have a defective fan. It is a common problem.
Hope this helps,

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.

Protector and "push Power"

Please check speaker wires should be properly connected and not touched / shorted.
Push Power Protect is error sign when unit got problem in Power Amp area and mostly its Power Amp Out IC failure.
I would suggest to ask Sony for warranty cover.

Green Screen on Sony 40" LCD

I just read this review :

I am extremely dissappointed with this Sony product and their customer service. After I had done tons of research and read hundreds of reviews on how good this t.v. was I finally felt comfortable spending this much money on a t.v. I was in love with this product at first. It was everything the reviews had said except it had slight clouding. Well, 1 year and 5 months after purchase the dang thing messed up.

I come home from work to watch some t.v....turn it on...and there was no picture. After a few seconds I heard sound from the speakers, so I automatically thought it was the satellite. A few seconds later the screen turned BRIGHT GREEN!!!! I unplugged the satellite reciever and tested it on the dvd player...same thing bright green screen. Unplugged everything and was just going to use the t.v.'s menu, but the same thing. I actually couldn't pull up the menu, so I knew something bad was probably wrong.

I called Sony customer service and went through a couple of trouble shooting tips, but they ended up ruling it unrepairable over the phone and said I had to take it to a service center. The service center tech called and said it was the CPU board and it would be $800-1,000 to fix. I called another service center and they said the same thing.

It was manufactured in Mexico, so if you are thinking about buying this model I suggest two things:

1. Don't buy it if it says "Manufactured in Mexico" with a manufactured date between August '06 - December '06

2. Get the extended warranty. Because lately I've seen reviews of the backlight going out or some minor problems that are happening shortly after the 1 year manufacturers warranty.

I am sorry to have to give you this info. I would call Sony service as He did and find out what they tell you. Here is the link for contact with Sony
