Question about Sony STR-DE525

1 Answer

No Output from any channel


My DE-525 does not give any audio output at all. Turn the volume right up and get a crackling noise and a very faint output. All channels are the same, as well as all inputs. I'm assuming that this issue is related to the input or preamp section. Display is normal and from testing, power seems good too.

Can any one point me in the right direction?

I have a sony amp model str de475 - one speaker (rf) crackles when its turn pass 3 on the volume scale

The problem is in the audio driver and audio output stages, check speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a technician because of the complexity involved.

When i turn the volume up from my sony receiver strda3400es de protection comes in. By lower volumes it works ok.

Measure load resistance. That is the output connected resistance. If it is too low than normal this type of protection will be activated. Measure the impedence [resistance] of speakers connected to the output. It must be more than 4 ohms/channel effectively. OK.

AVR2106 blown channel parts list

Though any transistor(s) might well have gone and the capacitor could be changed, I see no reason to change any resistor unless it's burnt up or giving an incorrect resistance reading. A multi-meter will tell you if a resistor is working or not, if it's not dead or weak it won't make a lot of difference to the circuit, but replacing it will simply cost you more money!

I have bad static from my Pioneer vsx 49 Elite

sorry no easy solution as it sounds like the output transistors blew out or the emmitter resistors. you will need a service manual and an multimeter to measure the resistors on or around the audio output transistors they are a low value resistor usually around 1 to 2 watts in size. Do not replace any bad , burnt or discolloered resistors around the audio output transistors as if tou do you might just cause more damage to the output transistorsor audio output stage including the audio driver stage of the amp!!!!!!

Noisy channel of receiver

Generally, crackling noises come from anyplace there is a mechancial connection for the sound signal. The volume control, main/remote speaker switch and possibly the headphone jack. That is where the contacts must be cleaned, but it requires dissassembly. Try operating the main/remote speaker switches, and plug/unplug a headphone several times. I am assuming there is still audio behind that crackling. Are you using both main and remote speakers simultaneously?

Just shuts off

Most likely the unit is detecting an internal problem with it's circuitry or problem with a speaker and is shutting itself off to prevent further damage. You can try disconnecting all the speakers and trying again. If it stays on, then you probably have a bad speaker or shorted wire somewhere. Connect them one at a time to find out which one. If the unit still shuts off, then you've got internal problems that require a professional Mr Fix it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

No output from left channel after crackling sound

Marantz SR 5200/6200 lost audio or crackling on left or right channel except in mode s-direct is now fixed !
The root cause is a defective inegrated circuit on DSP board (the one with digital inputs). To fix it change the chip CS4391 by a new one or better by the improved version CS4392. On my device a capacitor was cut close to this IC : replace one 1uF after changing the IC. For any question search me with my callsing "F5RCT"; i have a spare IC for the one who is able to change it !
