One of three things: speaker wire short, shorted/or blown speaker, or a bad output chip. First and easiest way to check is to disconnect all speakers, turn it on, turn it up, and wait. If that's ok, begin connecting one speaker at a time with the unit off, then turn on and play. When you get to the speaker or wire with the problem, it will short and go into protection. Disconnect all speaker wires again and only hook up the speaker that shorted the receiver and test. If it shorts, swap speakers with the same wire and test again. If a different speaker on the same wire causes the unit to short, replace the wire. if it doesn't, you need to test the speaker with a multimeter or disassemble if possible, check the wiring internally on the speaker. Check the impedance, should be 8ohms or 6ohms depending on the drivers. then check for resistance. If your meter says 1... it's shorted and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps

Sounds like your power transformer is bad. You might also check the power board for cracks. This model had a history of that.

discharge the output circuit! If you don't you will blow a 10 ohm resistor every time. I've worked on hundreds of these receivers I know. They need the output circuit soldered at the voltage driver ic's and quite possibly some capicitors replaced on the digital board. The caps mounted near the heat sinks dry up the fastest. These are nice amps. Larry's Electronics Sacramento Ca. ledstiles@hotmail.com

Popping sound at random times out of my AV Reciever/Surround sound system when video is playing.


Clean and tighten all connections. Get a can of spray tuner and contact cleaner from Radio Shack to clean the volume and tone controls if you have access to the body of those controls. Some disassembly required. If this doesn't help, suspect a bad variable resistor in the amplifier circuit.

STR-V444ES just hums


Sounds like the output stage is shot.
Here are a few things to try. If there is an option in the manual to reset the unit to factory settings, try that.
If that doesn't work, disconnect all of the peripherals, and select the radio. If you get sound there, you may have a bad cable.

Beyond that I would say the amp needs repaired.

Sony Receiver STR-V444ES and Blueray


You might have to go into the players setup and select the output and audio stream options. If it is set for PCM only it will not receive the Dolby or DTS signals if you selected them in the DVDs audio selection menu. There may also be a signal select in the Sony receiver to assign the digital inputs to selected units.

Hope this helps

Ours started doing this also now up to 20 min of clicking before it turns on.  My thought is that it is a bad power supply since once its on it works fine.
