Question about Sony STR-DE945 Receiver
All speakers work, except the rear spaeakers. Disconnected, reconnected, no luck
Rear speakers may only work once you have a 5.1 or DTS signal source connected

SOURCE: rear speakers not working
The preset sound field is cleared when this mode is activated. Use
this mode before returning the product to clients upon completion

button to turn on the main power. The message S.F Initialize
appears and initialization is performed.

The only way your surround sound will work is if you have either the coaxial or fiber optic digital hookups attached to a PS3/Blueray/DVD/Cable box/Satellite box that have digital sound outputs. If you are just using the 1970's version of the red/white audio cables that is stero only.

I had this problem last night.
To solve it, you can reset the amp by:
1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.

your problem is a bad solder connection of the relay linked to the lautspeaker sockets. I had the same problem and googled for the solution. Since I resoldered the pins everything is fine. That problem is well known and happens to a lot of Sony receivers.
I can send you a link with a detailed how-to-do solution with pictures, however it's written in german language. But you can use some online translators.
