Question about Sony STR-DG600 Receiver

1 Answer

Display dims on certain menu items

When going through the menus to program the receiver, certain menu items are very dim to the point that you can barley see the display.  Then you move to the next menu item, and the display is bright again.  Has anyone else seen this issue on the str-dg600?

The display will dim for certain features that are not available for use in your current configuration or current operation.
For example; if you do not have an antenna plugged in then the selection for the tuner will be dimmed on the display.

How do I open an .xls file in 64-bit version of excel without it being in protected view?

I was like that when the problem exists when double-clicking in Windows Explorer. Then I get the message that the program isn't responding and have the option to close or wait. After a few moments Excel does eventually open and I can work on the file. I do not have the problem when I open the file directly form Excel.

How to add items in combobox using database in vb6.0

There are 2 ways:-

you can set the recordsource in the properties for the comboBox to a table or create a recordset and loop through it adding one item at a time, see example below:-

Dim dept As String
Dim db As DAO.Database
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Dim qd As DAO.QueryDef

Set db = CurrentDb
dept = formname[Form_Name].Department.Text

Was using the harmon kardon avr 225 receiver and the front panel went out. .... screen display of the channel number, volume, or menu item does not work. ...

Try hooking up a yellow video wire from the back of the AVR 225 Monitor out. Should be at the end of the 7 or 8 yellow video ports on the back of the stereo. Next plug the other end into a yellow video in on a t.v. Get your remote, (Harmon/Kardon) and make sure the t.v. is on the correct video input and hit the OSD(on screen display) button on your harmon remote. There should be a setting in there that says VFD under ADVANCED menu option that allows for turning the front of your stereo lights on and off and dimming them half way also. OFF/HALF/FULL are the 3 options I believe.

If this doesnt solve it your display may have crapped out on you.

Display light

I have the same problem. I'm pretty certain that the display is a fluro which just plain wears out - like a lot of microvave displays. I have just found out that the Oz agent is now Bosch, so I'll contact them & see if a display tube is a spare item or whether you have to get the whole detachable front. -- Greg
