Question about Sony STR-DE675 Receiver

1 Answer

Sony str-de675 receiver has no sound at speakers when turned on.

Sound does not come out of receiver unless I crank it to max volume then I can only barely hear it. Confirmed that it is not the speakers. What's wrong? I hope it is an easy and cheap fix or out it goes.

This unit is having a problem with the preamplifier and power amplifier section. The reason to suspect this is that you can still hear sound, this is not likely if you ahd a failure in the power supply section. The unit may have had a failure in the amplifier areas of these sections, These are the signal amplifier sections that increase the power of the signal to drive the sound in the speakers .The Unit is probably in the protection mode reducing all power to prevent further damage to the rest of the receiver. You can go to the www.sony.com website support section and look in the frequently asked question and troubleshooting sections for problems like yours and see if they have any answers. On this website you can also find customer support. Ask them questions about the problem and see if they have any solutions.If all this fails to answer you problem, you can try opening the unit and looking for the problem yourself. Only work on the unit with it unpluged from the power source. Take off the top cover and look for any damaged areas, on the pc boards.They would be brown areas from excessive heat due to component overheating and possible failure.Look for capacitors that may have gone bad, they will be bulging from the top and bottom and may be leaking material from inside of them. Any component like this needs to be replaced. You may find burnt resistors and other failed components that will require a digital voltmeter to test.If you have expperience with this type of repair you might be able to isolate the problem and replace the parts. This may require the help of service information due to the complexity of the receiver's operations. Try to get a schematic or service manual from the web or a repair shop. This will have all the parts and a diagram of the all the different sections of the receiver. Usuall there is a power supply section, a tuner section, a preamplifier section, and a amplifier section. There also could be a equalizer section and other sections according the functions of the receiver. The failure most likely has occured in the preamplifier section or amplifier section. The problem in the preamplifier section could be a signal diode failure or a signal amplifier failure. in the amplifier section the problem could be in the output power devices which may be transistors or ic's depending on the type of output amplifier use in the unit. Usually not that hard to find with good service information and test eauipment.You may want to take this to a school that teaches electronic servicing and see if they will work on the unit for you for the cost of parts and a small labor fee. Call them first and see if they can help you out. I hope this helps you with your problem.

When im no the phone i can barely hear the other person. Unless im on speaker phone then i can hear fine


maybe by mistake you reduce the volume on the iphone.

try the following during a call press on the right control up volume to see if that improve your sound.

if that doesn't work you should go to an apple store or your cell provider.

NO SOUND OUT OF RECIEVER, TURN VOLUME TO MAX AND CAN HARDLY HEAR ANYTHING


TURN THE VOUME CONTROL DOWN TO SOMETHING REASONABLE. MAX VOLUME IS ONLY USED TO DESTROY SPEAKERS.

Unmute it, de-select Tape Monitor, de-select M.Input.

I am able to get sound through my speakers when I play a DVD or when I select the TV as a source but I have to crank the volume on the receiver up almost to the max to hear either source.


NEVER turn the volume up to MAX for testing. You'll destroy something when you finally find the switch that's wrong.

Can you provide a model number instead of a dubious power spec to describe the unit so we can know specifically what controls it has?

Has it ever worked?

Does the speaker adjustment routine (guessing it has one) make tone in all speakers?

What about the onboard FM? Is that too weak? If not, you need to figure out why external sources are too low.

I'd suspect a Tape Monitor is active when it shouldn't be. Or MUTE is on.

1) Make certain the switch on the side of the SLX1 is set to "mic".

Center Channel not Working


Check that it's center speaker in the set-up menu is on and that the sound field that it's in uses the center speaker. try it in pro logic. It could be a bad solder connection on the speaker terminal or on the relay in the receiver.
