Question about Sony STR-DA9000ES Receiver

2 Answers

Not powering on

I connect the power cord to my previously working receiver and no lights come on. All I hear is a clicking noise that sounds like relays opening and closing over and over again.

What could the problem be?

    I connect the power cord to my previously working receiver and no lights come on. All I hear is a clicking noise that sounds like relays opening and closing over and over again.

    What could the problem be? I have removed all the speakers and connections from the back of the receiver.

    I didn't need to pay $9.99 to have someone tell me to take it in to a service center. I was going to do that anyway if someone didn't have a fix for me.

    When the answer is "take it to a professional to fix it", then the expert fee should automatically be refunded. IMHO

    My wife called this morning to let me know that the DA9000ES quit and was making a clicking noise, not powering up. I went home at lunch to check it out. When powered up it makes a clicking sound like the power relay is kicking in (normal) then it makes another noise like it's kicking out. Just keeps repeating, no lights, no other noise, no messages. Any thoughts? Sony Support was little to no help. They told me to take in to service and when he got it back they had replaced Two in-line fuses in the power circuit . Same fault as yours sothe fix will be same and another with same fault..My STR-DA900ES did the same thing last January. Sent it to the Bristol, PA Service Center. Got it back in about three weeks. They replaced a relay and fuze.



    So open it up and get out the multimeter and your soldering iron, or send it to someone who can look at it for you

    Apparently this is wrong of me to post like this, I thought that showing other people with exact same amp, with exact same problem and what was done to fix it is a helpfull way of showing a solution for "sonydog"

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Dec 10, 2007

    Sonydog are you comfortable with electricity and capable of using a soldering iron and multimeter? Because I beleive your problem to be two blown inline fuses and a possible faulty relay in power circuit, as I have tried to show from other uses.

Remove all external devices and speakers
the clicking is the auto protection.

    do you get any kind of protection code?
    best i can tell you is vacuums any dust inside and make sure all screws are tight.
    the unit is digital so it makes it hard to tell whats really wrong suggest sending it in for service

Laptop turns off after a second


One second after your press the power button or one second after it gets the the windows desktop? When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, see any lights, hear the disk drive spinning, hear the cd rom drive click once and see the light for about 2 seconds on the cd rom drawer? If all the previous is seen or heard it means you are getting power and it's trying to boot. If you see or hear nothing at all it means your power cord is probably bad. On most laptops once you plug the power cord in you should see a light someone on the laptop, if not the cord is bad. Also on some AC Adapter Power Cords they will have an indicator light on the adapter that lets you know it's functioning. It really sounds like your power cord went bad and the last time you were able to operate you were operating off your battery which is completely drained since the cord could not recharge it. One last thing to try is remove the power cord and battery from the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then plug on the power cord back it and press the power button. if it boots you can put the battery back in.

In the receiver there is a ampere ic.Its located on the inner circuit board of the receiver.Its got short and faulty.And also the noise which you are hearing again n again this noise is coming from other components on the receiver board getting short.Dont connect it to the power source it will get damaged.First get it repaired by replacing the IC.Also now you have tried and connected the receiver to power source so this might have damage some more electrical components on the board.So all this components has to be replaced.As it will not be very costly repair to get this components replaced.All the required components are easily available at local hardware stores dealing in electrical parts and components.If you are familiar with doing soldering jobs and if you have experience of using multimeter then instead of going to technician you can repair this problem your self by replacing the component. also to disassemble the unit you require a screw driver ands thin knife to un-clip the internal hidden clips. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? if you heart clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the ballast that's the board that powers the lamp.Do you hear buzzing,whirling,or high pitch sounds?If you do it could be the color wheel which is a little disc looking that when the light of the lamp goes through it creates the colors on the tv.This are the most common failures on samsungs.

It doesn't turn on!


If your Macintosh computer won't turn on, here's how to troubleshoot it. Please keep in mind that although your computer may display similar symptoms that prevent it from showing video, this article discusses what to do if the computer won't turn on, meaning that when you press the power button:
  • You don't hear a startup chime
  • You don't hear any fan or drive noise
  • The power button or power indicator doesn't light up at all
If your computer doesn't display any video, it may display one or more of these similar symptoms when you press the power button:
  • You may hear a startup chime
  • You may hear fan or drive noise
  • You may see the power button or power indicator light up
If any of these conditions occurs, see the Troubleshooting: My computer has no video article instead. If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
  1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
  4. Reset the computer's PMU or PRAM.
    • For a portable (iBook or PowerBook), click here for instructions.
    • For a Mac mini, click here.
    • For an iMac, click here.
    • For a Power Mac, click here.
    • For a Mac Pro click here.
    • For a MacBook or MacBook Pro, click here.
    • For any other computer, click here for instructions on resetting the PRAM.
  5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord. You can get a replacement cord for some models here.
  6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
  7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to your local Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis.

Receiver Not Powering On

Won't Power On...


Hello degaff, This is what I would do to try to determine the problem: 1. Disconnect everything from the receiver. The only thing connected should be the power cord. Make sure the power cord is disconnected from power for at least 30 minutes in order to reset the internal electronic software. 2. Then, power it up - still nothing else connected. If it powers up normally and "looks" like it is going to work, then turn it off and connect only the right speaker to its amplifier and try again. If it still looks normal, then turn it off and connect the DVD or CD player and run some music through that speaker. If it still looks normal, then shut it off and connect the left speaker, etc... In other words go one-by-one in checking it out. 3. If it does NOT power up after step ONE, then there is a problem internally. If it powers up only to shut down again, there is still a hardware problem internally. The usual cause is shorted output transistors. And the normal cause of shorted outputs is a short on the speaker line, a short inside one of the speakers or overdriving the amplifier for too long a period of time. If the outputs need replaced, then it will cost an arm and a leg to get them repaired, and you are better off replacing the unit. The clicking sound, by the way, is the power relay which turns the power transformer on. And if there are faults in the amp, speakers or wiring, the protection circuit shuts the relay off; that is the clicking sound you hear. Please let us know how this works, and if we can help you any further. Best regards, nightdiver
