Re: how to reset a sony STR-AV920

Turn it off, you might have to unplug it and leave it unplugged for 10 minutes or so. It should reset itself. Make sure you don't have a wire short somewhere causing an overload to the Amp. You might have to move the turntable further away from the Amp. It is also important to have the T.table Ground wire connected to the back of the Amp/Receiver. Thanks.

Can I connect a tape deck *and* a turntable to the Sony STR-DE595?

If your turn table has a magnetic cartridge it will not work,Becuase the ner recievers are not equip with a phono preamp, They are equip to only use a crystal or ceramic cartridge in the turn table.

Sony STR-DE525 Left Rear channel not working

Most likely the amp for that channel is defective. If memory serves me correctly, there is a small amp chip mounted on the heatsink that is for both the left and right rear. I would change that first. It should have about 5-7 pins.

Protect Mode With Sony str-de595

Hi snark63

Ypou have an intermittent problem that sounds to be heat related... the more work the amp does, the more heat generated by the output stages. This will be aggravating some poor solder joints that are cracked or dry. The unit needs some repair work done in these areas. If you have good experience with a soldering iron, the cure for this is to resolder the power stages of the unit, or any other solder joints that look to be failing.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

This is not a reset. Most likely one or more transistors have shorted and need to be replaced. Does the front display come on OK?

Sony amplifier/vcr problem

The Dog must have not liked the program? No what you need to do first is check the things that you overlooked as obvious? Such as mute switch, Balance control, Not in the right mode, speakers turned off, Audio cables pulled out of the unit. In tape monitor mode. Thats the most common thing if you have no sound after a bump from the rump of a dog,person playfull partner. Good Luck
