    I have the same problem, but no sound works through any of the speakers. I can increase the volume to 70, but it does not do anything. When I hit the power button, it doesn't make the pop noise that it usually does. Is something burned out? Can I fix this myself? Sony says that it will cost no more than 122 bucks plus me shipping it to them. Should I just be a new receiver?

It's broken internally..Yup.

I have a Sony STR-DE597 FM/AM Receiver .It has audio out plug and i have a Jensen js650 100 watt Subwoofer. how can i hook them up. Thanks.

The reason you may find it difficult to connect the Sony Receiver to the Jensen JS650 is that the JS650 does not have a line level input (RCA) to match the RCA subwoofer output of the STR-DE597 receiver. In this case, all you need to do is connect an extra set of speaker wires from the "Speaker B" Left and Right speaker connections on the back of the Sony to the speaker input connectors on the Jensen. On the front panel of the Sony, select speakers A+B settings so that the subwoofer is on in parallel with the front speakers.

I hope this answer is helpful to your home system set up.

The Jensen JS650 does not accept line level input so you need to use the Front B speaker output from your Sony receiver and not the RCA subwoofer output. Even though your subwoofer is active, it does not support line level (RCA) signals.

Just connect the subwoofer as you would a pair of speakers. Once connected, you make sure the front panel speaker switch on the Sony is set to A+B so you get sound from your existing speakers (A) and subwoofer (B).

I hope that works for you.

I have set up a BOSE Accustimass System with my STR de485 receiver. How do I adjust the treble/bass?

if u are using bose speaker system then remember one thing. go to speaker setup and select all the speakers as large not small. then only u will get a good tone. bose speakers will handle the output power of ur amplifier.
u can only adjust the bass and treble of ur frond Channel speakers. for that
select multi channel surround sound and the increase and decrease the bass and treble

The sound on the 2 front speakers and the sub woofer on my Sony STR-DE597 turned off and I can't figure out to turn them back on. I've lost my manuel. When I use the test tone on the remote, only the rear...

First, you can find your manual here:

You may have accidentally pressed the speaker select button and disabled speaker A (main) and enabled Speaker B or disabled both A and B. Start with page 40 in the manual to select Speaker A.

On the remote, press the "Speakers" button (Off/A/B/A+B) repeatedly until you hear some noise.

Everytime I put the volume up it cuts off saying protect...! How do i turn off the protect to allow sound to increase.?

I would check all speaker connections and speakers, check the speakers with an ohm meter and compare the resistance with all matching speakers and on the nameplate if there is one, my amp did that last year and i found a burnt coil in one speaker ( center channel) hooked my old one back up and solved the problem for me. GOOD LUCK

No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475

I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.

Good luck
