Question about Sony STR-DE197 Receiver
This reciever is only used for music for outdoor speakers. It was left on by accident during a thunder storm and before I could shut it off we lost power. When power can back on it read PROTECT across the screen. Now I do not have any volume...
I have the same unit. My best recommendation would be to remove all speaker wiring, and try new wiring with another pr of speakers,since the "outdoor " speakers were rained on. the protect mode that the unit went into sounds like it did because the speaker outputs were shorted due to the rain, so ensure that the speaker output terminals are not shorted and dry...also see if output is still availalable at the headphone jack...if it is, the pre-amp section is still good , in which case the protect mode and no volume output out of the speaker jacks may mean that youve blown the ouput trasnsistor finals.
I hope this helps.
