Are all the speakers connected?
Most A/V amps will go into standby if the speakers arent detected

I have a Sony STR-DE 597 reciever. I have been using it fine for a few years with no problems and it sounded great. I turn the unit on recently and a message was displayed on the unit that said PROTECT....

Protect will usually show up if the receiver was turned up too loud to the point where the speakers will crackle, the receiver will switch to protect to not damage anything. Unplug it for about 30 seconds and check all the audio wiring in the back to make sure everything is plugged in good and tight and no loose cables or stray pieces of copper audio wire and plug it back in.

Sounds like the power supply in the subwoooooooofer box is dying.

Replace the whole thing . It's going to be the best way out.

In the owners manual it says to check for speaker wires touching the back of the unit. I have the 710s and this problem became more and more annoying! I had two have two amplifiers replaced in it for $180.00, problem solved

Terrible sound

Maybe your tape monitor button is pushed or something along that line of thought. Check all your switches and buttons in front and back of the unit for proper position.

Shows to be stuck in Standby.

hold down the enter button and the advanced surround button for 5 seconds or so and the amp will restart, the display will come up and hopefully it will be ok. its often caused by using speakers under 8 ohms, or damaged speaker cables etc

Should I just Buy a new one?

You have a bad power supply or the audio output circuit has a short in it. You are correct by saying its probably betterv off getting a new unit. Most likly cost you more then a brand new shiny unit would . Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread
