SOURCE: Sony amp str-db940 - protection

Somewhere in your speaker wiring, you have a shorted wire. This short can be as simple as a single strand of wire touching the other terminal on one of the speakers.

With a bright flashlight, look carefully at the back of the receiver and then the speakers for any loose strands.

SOURCE: when iturn on my Sony STR-DE325 it goes into protect mode

Try disconnecting all of your speakers, and then turn on you unit. If you have a defective speaker, or a short in your wires, your unit will go into protect mode. If your unit seems ok with the speakers disconnected, then turn unit off, hook up one of the speaker leads and try it. This way you can isolate the problem.......

Good Luck,

Eric

Connecting a turntable to Sony STR K502P


Use RCA Cables from the TT to the Aux in on the Receiver. You may need to use a pre-amp inline from TT to Receiver.

I have an older Sony receiver(STR-DE445) ,has no input for a turntable.I recently picked up a Dyanaco pre-amp(PAT-4),much older.. Is it possible to use the pre-amp to hook the turntable to the Sony...


Yup, TT to the PAT-4 Phono In. Any output on the PAT-4 to any Line Level input (like AUX). The PAT-4 will affect the volume UNLESS you use the Tape Output. I'd use theTape Out to reduce the complexity of tandem volume controls.

Can I hook up a photo turntable to a sony str-de435 receiver? There aren't any jacks that specifically say phono, so I'm wondering if I can just hook it up to any of the audio jacks without any problem....


If your turntable has an amplified output, go ahead and plug it in to the aux port. If not, you won't be able to use it with your receiver properly. Look on the back (or front) of your turntable for a knob labeled "level" or "volume", and that will determine if it's amplified or not. Good luck, I hope this helps!

When I hook up the RCA cables from the Phono to minimal volume


PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.

My reciever turns itself off


You most likey have a wire short on your center or rear surround speakers. The wire short will be between the + and - points of the speaker wire.

To find the problem speaker, disconnect one of the 3 speakers at a time from the back of the sony and see if the problem goes away. Once you identified the offending speaker, check both the sony side and speaker side for the short. The small wire strands are hard to see and it only takes one to trip the protection mode, so look carefully.

If this is a recent occurrence, unplug receiver for 20 minutes. This will reset the receiver. If the remote is programmable, reprogram it for the receiver. If you do these steps and it does not work, you need a different remote.

You appear to have reprogrammed your remote. Remotes can work with other units made by the same company. But the keys will pass out different signals to each unit. You need to find the correct code for your unit.
This could involve selecting a combination of keys on the remote and possibly some controls on the unit. Then entering a numbers on the remote.
It could be that the unit has the option of selecting a remote mode 2 also. So you will need to select it back to one or whatever it is supposed to be.
