Question about Sony STR-DB940 Receiver

Open Question

Lose sound watching a movie

When we watch a movie and the sound goes up, we loose sound and the tuner flashes protector on the front panel; we put a music cd in the dvd player and turn the sound up above what the movie was playing at and we never loose sound. With the movies, it may shut off 5-10 times per movie which is very irritating.

SOURCE: "Protect" feature increasingly activated.

You may have an output transistor gone bad and it is trying to run on one good transistor since they commonly are used in pairs (one positive and one negative). Time for a trip to the shop. Good luck.

SOURCE: playstation3 not working

Please post any solution that you may hear of. I have spoken to Sony and searched many forums and have come up with nothing. Except that one guy claimed he had this problem and when he installed linux his machine was able to use the drive thru linux.

Check all your speaker connections and make sure there are no shorts where any of the negative wires can come in contact with any of the positive wires.

SOURCE: Protector

This message indicates that a problem was detected in the amp. In order to prevent any further damage to the amp or the speakers, the outputs are turned off. Does the receiver show this at all times now?

How do I clean or delete all movies that listed as "because you watch?"


Sounds like someone else with children is sharing your account. If you are watching the movies on Netflix, for example, they allow two connections for one account using the same password. The two connections don't have to be in one house--or even in one city or one state.
There are ways to reset your viewing history, but your kids or grandkids will lose the history as well.
Have you watched the Doc Martin series by the way?
Hillarious! Start from the beginning. It's a serial.
