Question about Sony STR-DE685 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound only some out of 2 speakers at a time. I need all 4.

I have a Sony Receiver Model No. STR - DE685 I have 4 speakers hooked up. My problem is that only 2 work at one time. I have 2 hooked up in the "front speakers" portion, and 2 in the "surround sound" section. The connections are secure. In 2CH ST. mode only the 2 front speakers work, and in the norm.surr (normal surround) mode, only the surround speakers work. Thanks for any help

In receivers, there are different power supplies or power supply outputs for the receiver and amplifier sections so you can have separate failures with one area not affecting the other. From your description, I think the (probably lower voltage) section for the receiver has either lost a cheap filter capacitor or a regulator IC. Neither of these are expensive parts but I can't know what labor costs in your area might be. An honest tech shouldn't ask more than ~$100 US for that kind of repair.

Sony STR-DE685, home stereo, center speaker cuts out, as does left surround. tried everything. Worth fixing? or shitcan it?


It all depends on what's wrong it and if it's worth the price to fix it to YOU, doesn't it? If it's really broken only a tech can look at it and tell you the cost to fix it.


Have you eliminated the individual speakers and cables first? Or looked in the manual?

This is posted under the Sony STR-DE685 heading, so I assume that's what you have. (If not, your receiver may have other hookup options available.) It might help if you download the manual if you need a copy from Sony's site here. It details all the rear panel connections.

This receiver doesn't have HDMI connections, so you'll need to make your connections using RCA cables It doesn't pay you to get an HD cable box if you're planning on connecting it through the receiver.

Output to the TV is very simple. Use a component video cable to go from the component monitor output on the receiver to the TV's component input. Then switch the TV to that input, turn off its speakers and listen to the sound through the receiver. Only one cable going to the TV that way.

Inputs will need separate audio and video connections since there are no HDMI connectors. Use the component video connection for your DVD player for the best video quality. The DVD/LD input offers those jacks. You can connect your cable box to the VIDEO 2 input using component video connections (if the box has those outputs) or composite video. Then the video and audio from the box will run through the receiver as well.

If you want to get a new HD cable box, you'll need to run a cable from its HDMI output to an input on the TV, and switch the TV to that input to watch the box. You can still run the audio signal through the receiver though. That will add one more cable to your hookup, and you'll have to remember to switch inputs.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

I have hooked by two bose 161 speakers using 14 gauge speaker wire (about 8 feet) to sony str-dg720. But I get absolutely no sound from the speakers. I have hooked the speakers to port A set of input...


You gots ta isolate the problem.  Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works.  If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced.  If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight.  Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound.  Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.

5.1 Surround sound not working


Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps

The sound goes off and says "unprotected"


check speaker wire connections on the back of receiver
bare wires should never touch each other or the metal chassis
if all connections and speakers seem ok the problem is internal witch can go from blown power supply to shorted output devices and everything in between , and as always look for repair shop in your area, do not attempt to do it yourself, firehazard and electric shock are the things we all want to avoid ;)

When you change the selector switch, do you hear the relays inside the unit? Is your muting button activated (found to the lower left of your volume knob)? Do you have speakers connected to A or B or both?
