Question about Sony STR-DG800 Receiver

1 Answer

No sound through speakers from Sony STR-DG800

I am attempting to complete hookup of my Sony STR-DG800. Unfortunately, I am only getting audio through my TV speakers.
I have connected two good-quality speakers to the receiver as Front A and Front B. I do not plan to use surround sound.

I have connected the system using 3 HDMI cables:
1) Digital cable box to receiver via TV/SAT input;
2) Sony Playstation/DVD player to receiver via DVD input; and
3) Receiver to digital flatscreen TV.

Sound seemed to be working for awhile through my speakers, but now is not. I am not the only one using the system, and my wife is not quite as certain with all of the buttons.

How can I get sound through my speakers?

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If you are not able to get any sound from your receiver then first check the connections:

How To Hook-Up Sony STR-DG800

Sony STR-DG800 User Manual

If still the issue is not resolved then it means that the recievers input has a component problem or the output device hooked up to the receiver is not working properly.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks Rylee

Hook up hdmi cable to receiver input have picture but no sound


HDMI is funny about having sound problems--it does not like to be connected when units are on or even powered up.

Does the receiver have any other hookup options?

about the only suggestion (presuming all is now connected correctly) is to remove power from TV, receiver, box if used for a while---make connections then power everything back up to see if when one or all units reboot it will work or not.

Sony str-dg800. Pre-amp out has no signal.


Hello. Jacks you are refering to are surround preamp out only. If you want full range audio out use video 1 audio out or video 2 audio out. The set does have a mono subwoofer out. You could have to go into the menu and turn it on but that is where you are to connect a subwoofer to . Larry's Electronics. ledstiles@hotmail.com

Sony Model: STR-DG800


You've got a short in one of your speaker wires either at the receiver (most common) or at the speaker itself. you should only have a 1/2" of each side of the speaker wire stripped to put on each terminal, and when you strip them, twist them so there are no frays in the strands that will touch the other terminal. The receiver is protecting itself from harm. Turn it off then disconnect all speaker wires, examine each wire carefully before reinstalling, then turn the receiver back on. If it still says protection, look at each speaker and reconnect your wires the same way. If you still have a problem, disconnect the wires again at the receiver and turn on, at this point, if it say's protection, it needs to be serviced. Hope this helps
