Question about Sony STR-DE697 Receiver
Hi. Iseem to have a very common problem with a sony amp, where the centre channel cuts out after a few minutes. Have seen other posts (lots on the 5.1 sony systems) where users experience the same issue. Have checked the wiring and speaker connections, all seems fine. If the channel cuts out, a lights slap on the amp seems to fix it most of the times. Sometimes a second slap is required. Have had this occur when nothing is playing on the DVD, like when a movie is paused - you can hear the amp clicking. Have read people talk about cold soldering problems somewhere inside the amp - I don't feel comfortable fidling around inside the box.
Stereo Tech: Sounds like you definitly have a broken solder connection on the main PC board. A bad solder connection is tricky to find somtimes if one is not familiar with exactly what it looks like (kinda like mt st helens with a ring around the top) if you attempt this yourself DO NOT MAKE A SOLDER BRIDGE you will open pandoras box. Good luck
