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.

SOURCE: sony str-dg820. having a problem getting video on tv

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.

SOURCE: STR-DE475 receiver flashes "PROTECT" when turned on

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.

SOURCE: I just picked up this Sony STR-G3 receiver. I do

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.

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up. Thanks.


The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

Can i hook up 4 8ohm speakers to my marantz 2252b


You can but you will have to put two speakers on the main L/R and two speakers on the remote L/R. DO NOT HOOK UP MORE THAN ONE SPEAKER TO A CHANNEL. Doing so can result in the amp running hot and damage will occur.

How to hook up sony se501 speakers?


Good day Virgil. Please be a bit more specific. Are you using a Decoder to receive the TV signal? When you say " hook speaker wires to the TV" - do you mean via the Sony SE501 receiver??Just tell me what components you have and I can help you.

Amplifier - TA-AX380; CD Player - CDP-C40; AM/FM Tuner - ST-JX380; FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver - STR-AV570X, and Stereo Cassette Deck - TC-W380.....all Sony. Very old system, do not have the manuals, they...


Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

Hi, i have a sony i received from someone no manual, i have pretty good speakers but the sound output is no good. is it the unit does not have the wattage or i do not have it hook up right


Unless you're trying to really crank it up, any speaker should work on almost any amp if the hookup is correct. If the impedance or such is off, that won't show up at low volumes and I assume your sound is bad at any volume. Look for Main Left and Main Right and start there. 4 wires - 2 speakers, not too hard. Select a simple stereo source (like a CD) and see how it goes. That will verify the amp/speaker setup (at least for those 2). If that doesn't work, there may be an internal issue in the amp which is why "someone" was getting rid of it.

I have hooked by two bose 161 speakers using 14 gauge speaker wire (about 8 feet) to sony str-dg720. But I get absolutely no sound from the speakers. I have hooked the speakers to port A set of input...


You gots ta isolate the problem.  Disconnect the speakers and hook them up to a stereo you know that works.  If you don't hear sound coming out of the speakers, then you know the speakers are fu.k.d up, so you need to look on the speakers to see if there is a fuse that is blown that needs to be replaced.  If you got sound coming through, then disconnect them and hook them back to the original stereo making sure you got a good connection and all the wires are in good and tight.  Then turn your stereo on and go through the various channels like Tuner, Tape Deck, Aux, and DVD to see if you get any sound.  Also turn the volume knob up. If you don't get any sound after all this, you know there is something wrong with the stereo your using.

How do I hook up my Bose 901s to my Sony Receiver Model STR-DE545?


look at your speaker wire there should be some marking the distinguishes each wire. You need to get this right make sure the negative or black color from the speaker is connected to a negative or black of the receiver. ditto for the positive (red). look on the back of the receiver you should see where the speakers get connected left, right.

No sound from back speakers


Remember the rear speakers are called surround... Did you select surround on the unit? if it says stereo then you will only get fronts, select surround to get the rest.
