You've got a short in one of your speaker wires either at the receiver (most common) or at the speaker itself. you should only have a 1/2" of each side of the speaker wire stripped to put on each terminal, and when you strip them, twist them so there are no frays in the strands that will touch the other terminal. The receiver is protecting itself from harm. Turn it off then disconnect all speaker wires, examine each wire carefully before reinstalling, then turn the receiver back on. If it still says protection, look at each speaker and reconnect your wires the same way. If you still have a problem, disconnect the wires again at the receiver and turn on, at this point, if it say's protection, it needs to be serviced. Hope this helps

Sony receiver str-dg800 will not power on.


Unplug the unit from the wall and remove the outer case. At the rear of the main circuit board is a fuse. Check the fuse to see if its blown. If not, go to the transfomer at the front of the receiver and check the fuses at the transformer.

Sony str-dg800. Pre-amp out has no signal.


Hello. Jacks you are refering to are surround preamp out only. If you want full range audio out use video 1 audio out or video 2 audio out. The set does have a mono subwoofer out. You could have to go into the menu and turn it on but that is where you are to connect a subwoofer to . Larry's Electronics. ledstiles@hotmail.com
