Re: sony STR-DE545 receiver

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try

Str-de545 sony not putting out sound to rear speakers

From page 46 (Troubleshooting)-

No sound or only a very low-level sound is heard from the rear speakers.

>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).

>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see pages 28-30).

>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 19).

>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 17).

Can I add a phono player to this receiver? I have the manual for this receiver and think I need to hook it up to AUX, is that right?

Yes, you can hook it to AUX, it is really doesn't make much difference if you hook it to CD in or TAPE in or AUX, just press corresponding button in the front :)

Sony str de545 5.1

Make sure the subwoofer is set to On in the setup menu. Should be able to access this setting from the front panel, using the click wheel and the left/right buttons above the wheel. Push the setup button to get to the right menu. Set subwoofer to 'on' and speaker size to 'small'. This receiver has a fixed crossover, so make sure to turn the crossover setting on the subwoofer to the maximum setting (highest frequency) to ensure no signal is lost.

I just turned my DVD player off when my STR-DE545 was still in DVD input mode and it came up LOCKED, maybe the input that you are using is not receiving a signal?
