SOURCE: Sony STR DB-930 Receiver jumping into protector mode

I went through the amp/receiver and used small star washers on all the grounding screws I could find including the one securing the transformer, cleaned dust off all circuit boards, checked output transistors and fuses, all OK.

Re Assembled unit and it worked OK.

I will buy a fan and fan it to avoid sourcing heatsinks for the previusly suggested IC's.

Thanks for the technical help, sure solved my problem.

Regards

Darryl.

STRDG520 requires that the audio is from the digital optical or the digital coaxial to have sound. Just add digital audio from blue ray player to the amp and your good to go.

SOURCE: Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound

The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

SOURCE: I NEED TO RESET Sony STR D365 Receiver BACK TO

I believe what you want to do is as follows. Turn off the power supply. Hold the buttons 6, 7, 8. And turn on the power. The display should activate all options, then turn on and off a few times and finally display End. Then the memory should be reset back to Factory.

How do I do a factory reset on Sony STR-DA3300ES receiver when the published method in the manual doesn't work?


While holding down TUNING MODE, press POWER on the receiver. All preset stations will be erased when you change
the tuning scale.

See some test modes

MEMORY CLEARING MODE
All preset contents are cleared when this mode is activated. Use
this mode before returning the product to clients upon completion
of repair.
Procedure:
1. While pressing the [TONE MODE] and [DMPORT] buttons, press
the [POWER] button to turn on the main power.
2. The message "MEMORY CLEARING***" appears and the
memories are reset to the default values.
3. When done, the message "MEMORY CLEARED*"

If you are a geek then try the SUPER MENU MODE .
Understand how to enter and exit the menu,
then See if Super reset on page 25 helps

How do I adjust the treble and bass on sony str-dh520?


See EQ Mode on page 59 of the owners manual to set the bass and treble for the front speakers, presumably for 2 channel mode. For multi-channel mode there are several pre-programmed audio modes listed starting on page 43 and music mode starting on page 44.

Will the Sony STR-DG820 receiver support 3D?


I have this amp and mine does not have the latest firmware (indicated by a green or blue dot near the serial number) and it does not pass through Audio or Video when a 3D Blu-Ray is played in my PS3 although my TV (Sony Bravia XBR-52HX909) does say "3D Video Signal Detected." No audio or video ever plays but the PS3 looks like it's playing.
