Having problems with my SONY str-db798 amp. When i turn it on (without any speakers or even with speakers) it flashes "PROTECT" and shuts down. Any suggestions how to deal with it without getting...


Press and hold down the power button on the front panel until you hear a secondary "click" from inside the chassis. That takes about 15 seconds.

Then read my tutorial on how to keep your receiver out of protect mode.

My TV shuts off as soon as I turn it on...What is causing it to do this??


Hi there,

When it shuts off. Try doing what's called a self-diagnostic test. As soon as the television shuts try these steps.

Pressing on the front panel's 'INPUT' and 'MENU' buttons at the same time, and holding for 5 seconds, activates the Self Diagnostic Code Mode. The LED flashes denoting a two digit Error Code, or indicating no problem has occured since the last Initalization.

Note: The front panel buttons must be used, NOT those on the Remote Control.

-The number of flashes indicates the value of the MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.
-The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2 second.
-The LED then flashes indicating the value of the LSD (ones digit) of the Error Code.
-The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.
-Example: If the Error Code is ?24?, the LED will flash two times, pause, and then flash four
times.

The Error Code designations indicating a malfunction, or no malfunction, are listed below:
Self Diagnostic Code Description
1 - 2 = no error detected
2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current)
2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies)
2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection)
2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source).

My avr-688 will shut off out of the blue and will flash a red blinking light


It sounds like it might be the overheat protection problem described in this thread. http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=622921&thid=3736114 Your amp has a thermal protection circuit which shuts down the receiver to prevent damage from overheating. Most often this is due to using speakers with an incorrect ohm rating, such as using 4 ohm speakers in a system designed for 6 ohm . It can also occur from using 6 ohm speakers in both the A and B front channels at the same time. If you have speakers attached to both the A and B try removing one set and check if this makes the system stable.

Mitsubishi vs50605 turn on and dhuts down and light flashes 3 time


This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1. MAY BE INTERMITTENT, SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24. CHECK SOLDER CONNECTIONS AT CONNECTOR "DY" ON THE YOKES. 2. SHUTDOWN AT POWER WITH SELF-DIAGNOSIS ERROR 23 OR 24.

Shutdown protection? HELP please


All of the Denon recievers I have repaired (over 100) that shut down after a very short time are going into protect mode. The display lights up and after about 10 seconds the display goes out and the standby led blinks red.
I have found that they have one of 3 possible problems and they all require that the reciever be taken apart and fixed at component level. No way to tell what your problem is until it gets put on a bench and troubleshot.

Problem 1. This is the most common problem. One of the front channels shorts out. On the big heat sink the front channels are at each end. It is the front left channel (close to the display) This requires that the output transistors be replaced as well as some driver transistors and some resistors and a capacitor. Lots of work for a blown channel. Denon has put out a bullitin to upgrade the bias transistor and change a couple of resistors to help compensate for this failure. That channel overheats more than any other channel.

Problem 2. There is a resistor that is right next to the preamp board that opens up. It is a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor and when it opens, it causes the unit to go into protect.

Problem 3. The +12 volt regulator fails. It is in the power supply area on a smal heat sink right next to the -12 volt regulator. Generic part number is KIA7812 It also causes the unit to go into protect.

Most decent repair shops can fix these from about $120 up to about $200. Depending on which problem it is and how fast they are at finding the problem. Most charge labor by the hour.
