SOURCE: Can I still used this equipment

Hi Jerome

You will need either a pre-in pre-out connection on the amp to use, A vcr in/out loop can be used in lieu of a "tape" loop. Or alternatively you can put the EQ in line with the bit of gear you want to EQ. In this day and age, of "many more than stereo" systems, a 2 channel EQ has much less application. Although this seems to "outdate" a piece of gear, most stuff from yesteryear still sounds great, so why stop using it. Good Luck and happy listening. A "FixYa" rating from you would help my profile. I am happy to answer any questions you may still have, put them in here and I shall get back to you.

SOURCE: cant get sony sub woofer model no. ss-wg60 working

First, go into the "setup" mode of the receiver and go to speaker select, then toggle to sub, highlight and make sure it's "on" Then toggle to speaker volume and check the sub level. Maximum setting is "0". Make sure you are connected to the subwoofer output on the receiver as well. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I can help you some more.Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a Sony HT-SL55

The curse of some all-in-one HTIB's is proprietary color-coded speaker connectors where cheap plain old lamp cord or speaker wire would do.

SOURCE: Can I connect a passive

No. Like most AVR's it only provides a Line Level output for an externally powered subwoofer. Get a separate amp for the sub.

Center channel goes off and will not come on until i tap on amp


There are bad solder connections on the circuit board inside the receiver, if you are handy with a soldering iron remove the top part of the case and trace the center channel speaker wires to the board, this will isolate the problem in the general area, chances are it is the center channel ic that need to be retouched.

I have a SOny STR DB 840 receiver. When I turn the volume up to 3 it will shut off and go into "protector" mode. Would say the shortage is in the speaker wires or the unit itself?


That's for you to determine.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

STR-DB840 no sound in speakers


There are 4 blue relays in the unit that has solder points that will crack over time.
It´s fairly "easy" to re-solder them and viola, it´s OK again.

open the cover (unscrew and take of the hood) and locate the 4 blue relays.0cddb82.jpg Unscrew and remove the bottom service plate and locate the soldering points for the 4 relays.c0f1d35.jpg
Each relay has 6 solderings, 4 in one "groop" and 2 in one "groop" look especially at the "2-groop" these are the ones most likely to crack over time ( for me 12 years or so).3436d08.jpge6f7344.jpg
Re- solder. Best of luck //Ronnie Stockholm
