Question about Sony STR-DA5000ES Receiver

1 Answer

No Digital Output

I have a Sony STR-DA5000ES reciever that when turned to Coax Digital output, will not put out sound. The digital screen will say Stream Info (unlock). I go to the Stream menu under main menu, enter it, and it tells me that a certain specification is unlocked, and it will not deviate from this setting, it has always said that. I do not understand why the reciever locks up like this when nothing I have done changes. It works on analog setting still, but not digital. I have tried different cables, checked the plug-ins, and tried different DVD players and nothing changes it. I have reset the reciever, unplugged everything and then reattched it all, and no change. Very frusturatng, please help!

"Unlocked" only means that it isn't detecting a digital signal on the input. "Locked" conversely means that it has locked on to a digital signal. My Sony receiver behaves this way.

No sound on coax audio input from HDTV


Check your settings on your tv. You may have to turn off the internal tv speakers in the setup menu in order to get any audio output from the jacks on the back.

My reciever overheated


Hello
You haven't given any details of the present condition of your Sony Amp. Anyway, I posts this solution assuming that, the set is dead now. If the set has been overheated, there must be some short or overload, in its output section. The output section is the most current conscuming part of any amp. To detect and repair this section, you must ahve sound knoledge in electronics, especially digital electroncis, because, except output part of this set, all other sections are digital circuits. Without knowing anything about digital electonics, all work will be in vein.
If you have enough knoledge, inform me by Fixya comment box. i'm ready to assist you to troubleshoot this set. You must have thorugh knoledge in electronics to follow me. OK.

Can i have two 400 w spekers on sony DA5000ES?


Be very careful here.

If you put the speakers in parallel, the amp may well blow (4 ohm speakers in parallel would kill it at high volumes), and it may take the speakers with it.

I wouldn't try to extract more than the rated power from the amp. At it's rated output, it's seriously distorting, to a point where it becomes unlistenable. So, trying to ramp up the power further would only make it sound worse.

Putting the speakers in series is a safer route for your amp.

MySony str-da5000es is showing error code 11 and shut off by itself after few seconds.check and disconnect all speakers, unplugged power from wall and still showing error 11. am missing something in here...


error code 11 (protector) - According to the manual, 11/PROTECTOR means, "Irregular current is output from the speakers. Turn of the receiver, check the speaker connection and turn on the power again." Most likely, a strand of speaker wire is shorted to the chassis at one of the speaker terminals.
Hope this helps !

Just hooked up Coax cable; now talking is barely audible


is the center speaker turned up in the reciever speaker settings? each speaker can be adjusted to a level that is higher or lower or all the same as the rest. also is the dolby digital turned on in the reciever settings? and changing the surround sound pre set sounds can also improve the type of audio you are listening to in 6.1 surround sound

its for digital decoding of the sound source. You need to connect a digital cable (ie optical) from the DVD player to the optical input in the receiver. The receiver should then decode the source into multichannel components ie 5 channels for example

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.
