Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
What is the difference between MAIN and REMOTE. Is it possible the REMOTE hookup is blown
Wow, that's an old piece of kit! If you connect the second set of speakers up correctly at the rear and set the front knob to "remote" or "both" they should work. If not, something seriously wrong, but it may only be an internal connection problem - and if never used before - since 1971 - then some terminals may need cleaning.

Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI
You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above.
Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.

Protection is usually a sign of overheating or something is wrong at the power amplifier's output.
Theory: Protection is a delay and sometimes an internal test to allow the electronics to stabilize during power up before they are allowed to interact with the speakers. The most common cause of it remaining ON is that a speaker cable pair is shorted. Some isolation is required...
1. Turn the Power OFF.
2. Disconnect each set of the speaker wires that are directly attached to the receiver. Mark them so you remember where each one went. pay special attention to which conductor is on "+" or "POS" and which is on "-", "COM" or "Ground". You may elect to disconnect them one pair at a time if your sytem is complex and you don't want to lose track of where things were.
Turn the Power ON. Is the "Protect" indication gone from the display?
If YES, you have a shorted speaker wire or speaker. To isolate the specific cause:
1. Turn the Power OFF.
2. Attach ONE speaker wire pair at a time and test it by turning the Receiver ON. When the "Protect" light returns you have isolated at least one of the cause(s). Disconnect the defective speaker cable and continue isolation of all speaker cables. Visually examine the cable at both ends for frayed wires that could touch each other or contact metal on the receiver or other objects.
To isolate further within the cable/speaker pair - disconnect the speaker end of the cable on the failing path. Try another cable that you know works, or at least one that doesn't cause Protection to stay on.
If you're electrically savvy and have a Digital Volt/Ohm Meter you can troubleshoot the short(s) with it.
If NO, there is probably an internal problem.
Is it solid or does it come on after the Receiver has been ON awhile.
It could be overheating.
Is the unit hot to the touch?
Is there a cooling device (fan)?
Is it stopped or clogged with dust?
Is there adequate ventilation around the unit for air to flow?
Clean any ventilation slots on the top and bottom of the unit.
Avoid stacking components that produce heat under an amplifier or receiver. Their heat rises. Also keep them away from other heat sources like like home heating vents and radiators.
Problem solid and NOT related to the speakers or heat: internal malfunction.
Let me know.

That would be your master gain control. Each speaker has its own control and the master gain control, controls all of them, up and down. Now I must say to you that I have never seen this animal, but I have never seen any design like that which did not have a master gain control.
My name is Constantin (arzconst is my internal nickname for Fixya.com)

hi my names josh your feeds arent going to feed out through that hdmi if your have hdmi coming in you will get that signal going out however depending on what your signal source is for the rest of your compenents that will determine your problem for instance if you if your runing all compenent which y p b or video which is just standard yellow red and white cables you have to stay with one or the other what you go into your reciever with you must go out with if analog wich is just video and audio you have to go out through your monitor out source to get a picure if compenent whic by the way will produce a far greater picture it is your y p and b jacks and the color of those are green blue and red those are just for picture only not audio you have to still run audio with these cables you go in the unit with those you have to go out with those directly to your tv then you want check you reciever video setting to make sure it is set for that and well as your tv to make sure you are in the right monitor or screen to get your picture
