first, at turn on you should hear a relay click then a few seconds later a second click. if you should hear the two relay clicks then check to see if you have both A and B speakers on, if you do shut B speaker off. next check the tape monitor switch make sure that it is off. if you should not hear the second relay click you have a problem with the unit and needs to be repaired.

SOURCE: Low volume on left channel of Sony STR-GX4ES

The headphone is tapped before the final stage of the amp, so knowing that those work properly helps to isolate the problem. I think that this model uses an IC for the voltage amp section prior to the final amp stage. That being said, the IC is probably an UPC2598 (if memory serves). I'll confirm tonight. Try resoldering any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Let me know what you find.

Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.

When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.

Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.

Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.

If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.

In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.

If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.

Sony receiver stR se-501 found fuse burned after replaced turned on the flashing massage PROTECT come on . Did I miss anything?


Protect typically means that the fuse blew because something in your receiver went bad. It's now protecting your speakers from that badness. You need to get the receiver fixed or replaced.

How do i connect an ipod to my sony str-de310 receiver


Connecting to a home stereo
  1. For most home stereo systems, connect iPod to your amplifier's sound input using a 3.5 mm mini stereo to RCA adapter cable.
  2. Adjust the volume on iPod to less than half to prevent overdriving your amplifier. Adjust the listening volume using your stereo's controls.

    Note: Depending on your stereo, iPod may need to be set higher than half in order to get a proper volume through external speakers.

I was playing some music pretty loud today on my Sony STR-DB790 and then no bang no crackling just strait to protect mode turned stereo off thinking nothing of it and now every time I turn it on strait to...


There is an output load causing the protect to engage, turn unit off and dis-connect the speaker wires from the back of the receiver, this will reset the processor ic. Now power on and turn volume right down, if the word protect stays off it means there is a short in the wires or one or more of the speakers. But if the word protect comes on with the "speakers and wires dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more audio output ic's and will need a tech to address the extent of damage and cost.

Str-gx800es sony receiver problem- right channel speaker sound is 'static', low and distorted. I have checked checked all speaker and output/input source cable connections with no luck. All left channel...


If you have checked the speakers and wiring, the right channel has a audio driver or output problem, which explains the low volume, static, and distortion. A service technician will be required to fix the receiver so it will balance the left side.

Volume change, followed by slight static playback.


I believe you have dry joints in output drive it require a qualifier Technician the do this you need special soldering station with anti static you are dealing with surface mount components if you shorted some thing in output drive it could damage to the output they are expensive to replace, now is not too bad you should bring in to Sony or servicce center Sony to repair it

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try
