The unit is overheating so it turns on the thermal protection.

If the unit lacks proper ventilation, it will overheat and turn on the thermal protection (e.g. there are several other units stacked on the top of the receiver and they are all enclosed in a tight shelf).

The problem may also be:

- a bad solder joint on any of the components, especially the ones that tend to produce heat

- damage to any of the components

- bad / oxydized connection contacts somewhere inside the unit.

Hope you can solve it.

Speaker Imedance Matching - Sony STR DE 997 receiver with 120Watts - 8 ohms output with Benz 6 ohms..Tower Speakers

hi pawanh75,

thanks in advance for a very informative setup that you have.

Here are some of possible mods , only if you like and can DIY

( or have someone to help you )

• Using a 6 ohms impedance for an 8 ohm impedance amp clearly

denotes that it heats up the output stages.

(please forgive my very technical words)

• One way to lessen the heat is to install a blower .

Use a 220V blower on top of the receiver.

( air should be in going up direction ).

• Before I proceed further please indicate if having the speaker

connected and having a zero volume , and just letting the receiver

in an "On" state deliverately produce heat on the receiver, or just

when the volume is at medium to high level.

If it s running hot at zero level with speaker , please post.

If it is running hot even without speaker, post also

• It may also helps , if you have a powered subwoofer ( for the low's),

and set settings on your receiver to "small"

Let me know what you find to help you further.

How to keep your receiver out of "protect mode" Part I

"Protect mode" as it is indicated by many manufacturers of modern AV receivers, is a useful safety tool but all too common a problem for many people.

There are various causes of this safety feature to be executed, and returning your unit to normal function will also vary by manufacturer by which you will have to refer to it's manual on the procedure. But the following tips to avoid getting into protect mode apply to all manufacturers of all receiver designs and circuit topology

The number one cause of "protect mode" is heat. Receivers that have Solid State amplifier topology produce a lot of heat. Solid State amplifier topology is the most commonly used design in receivers.
To reduce and dissipate this heat that can cause it to enter protect mode; do one or all of the following:

Remove anything stored on top of the unit. Anything that blocks the vents even temporarily while operating will cause it retain more heat.

Give it room, out in the open. Do not operate it while it is sitting in a cabinet or other enclosure.

Store it farther away from any other source of heat; don't overlook things like desk lamps directed at it, etc. It takes only 1 degree higher than the units' internal temperature sensor setting to shut it down.

If you are operating it in a hot climate, try placing a mini-desk fan directed into the vents.

Speakers are crackling while a movie is playing, which means for about ten minutes and then suddenly turns off with the power push light flashing. I tried unplug all speakers and all connection but...

so when all speaker wires removed and receiver on it still will go into protect mode and shut down? if so then it has to be heat is to great where you have your receiver placed. move your receiver from heat area and try to see if it keeps happening. another thing is you haven't stated if speakers are right for your system and or if ohm of speakers are right for your system. if the speakers are a lower ohm then what your system requires then you will put more demands on your system and cause more demand on receiver and create more heat in amp and it will shut down especially faster when you have it close to heat source. also speakers crackling is also a sign of too small of speaker gauge wire used which can also put demand on receiver and cause same problems.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.

When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

As far as actual temperature,no but the receiver should be warm. Enough heat will be produced to generate a strong warm sensation but if your hand gets to the point of being uncomfortable to being held on the receiver or it feels that it may burn you it is definitely getting to hot. Causes of overheating are usually caused by obstructions to the air flow vents on the receiver therefore there must be at least a three inch clearance around the receiver. If you keep the receiver in a confined space or place something on top of it it may cause the receiver to overheat also. I have never been given an actual temperature reading for the DVR under any circumstances. Please let me know the outcome of your issue. If you need further assistance please contact me. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

My logitech headphones dont turn on anymore.

Quote from LOGITECH official site:
In rare cases, the FreePulse Headphones may loose synchronization with the receiver. If this occurs the following steps will re-establish the connection by putting both the headphones and the receiver in discoverable mode (actively searching for another bluetooth device it can connect to).  
Putting the headphones in discoverable mode:
Press and hold the power button (located next to the charging port on the right earpiece) on the headphones. The LED on the button will go through three states in this order:
  • Blinking Red
  • Off (continue to hold. the LED will be off for several seconds)
  • Alternately blinking red and blue. (The headphones are now in discoverable mode and you can release the button at this point. The headphones will remain in this state for 30 seconds).
Putting the receiver in discoverable mode:
Press and hold the power button (located on the side of the receiver opposite the headphone jack).The LED on the button will go through three states in this order:
  • Blinking Red
  • Off (continue to hold. the LED will be off for several seconds)
  • Alternately blinking red and blue. (The reciever is now in discoverable mode and you can release the button at this point. The reciever will remain in this state for 30 seconds).
Re-establishing the connection:
To re-establish the connection between the headphones and the reciever, put the headphones and the receiver in discoverable mode at the same time. It will take a few seconds for the two devices to establish the connection. Once the connection has been established the LEDs on both the headphones and receiver will glow solid blue.

Do this and Freepulse will be pleased.
