Question about Sony STR-GA8ES Receiver

1 Answer

No display I recently purchased a Sony STR-GA8ES and found that it has no visible display. When it is plugged in and powered up, lights come on in places (i.e. volume knob) to let me know it is powered, but no display appears to let me select modes. I tried to plug in several units (VCR, DVD, Tape Player, CD Player and the TV) to see if I was getting any volume, but I think not being able to select a mode prevents me from hearing anything. Can you please provide some expert advice for a fretful soul? Thanks

2 Hold down TONE MODE and 2CH/A DIRECT and then press POWER to turn on the receiver.
3 Release the TONE MODE and 2CH/A DIRECT after a few seconds.

See if that helps.

Doument Reference: E23914196
Subject/Description: "Protect 21" is displayed when connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combo

Protect 21 is displayed when connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combination model such as the SA-VA7000ED. The problem was also found to occur when connected to the Definitive Technology POWER MONITOR 500 and POWER MONITOR 700 series speakers.
The DC detection circuit is triggered when the speakers are connected.
Add a 4.7k metal oxide film resistor across capacitors C1319 and C1329 located on the D-AMP board.

Hope this helps. =)
