Question about Sony STR-DE845 Receiver

1 Answer

Receiver making alot of clicking noises.

I've had this receiver for several years. About 2 months ago, it started making a bunch of clicking noises. About every 5 minutes, it will click about 5 times, then stop for about 10 seconds, and do it again. Is it on it's last leg or what. Sometimes, right after the clicking, the speakers won't sound the same for a few minutes, then go back to normal. Any help would be appreciated.

About a month ago my speakers started humming-does't matter if the cable/dvd are on, as long as the receiver is on it hums. Figured out it was the receiver since I plugged other speakers into my...

normally a Hum is caused by a bad ground,, if it only happens when the unit warms up it could be the output drives are failing. , check the grounds to the unit first, then the wires to the speakers themselves, if they all check out ok,, you need to take it to a repair shop dealing with receivers

If you've changed it's location or added speakers, or placed anything on top of it since the problem started then consider that it may just be over heating.

My receiver powers on normally, and functions for a while. Then there is a "Clink" noise, and the speakers all go silent, but the receiver is still on. Any ideas?

Look for PROTECT icon or alert on display the clink is usually the internal breaker switching the unit off to protect from catastrophic failure due to overdriving or grounding, etc. Also make sure it is not over heating. make sure there are not a bunch of other components stacked over the vents on top , give it a space to get air to cool off during use. they do get hot and click off, THE SCREEN WILL STAY ON.

Onkyo digital reciever has poping noise when in dolby sound

I have the same reciever, and had the same problem.  Contact Onkyo, this is a known issue where defective DSP chips were used and manifest problems with a popping / clicking sound when using surround settings.  These receivers also have a Dolby Digital input issue that can cause audio dropouts when watching cable or SAT broadcasts that encode DD using a 'newer' broadcast encoding methods.  Onkyo is covering the cost of that repair for me now, even though the receiver is 5 years old now....

Amp making clicking noise at varied times

Hello, headbanger here again. I have fixed the amp myself with 3 relays from an electronics company, the number on the relays can be seen by taking the cover off. The three speaker relays are at the back of the circuit board, there is a fourth relay for the power switch but it is at the front of the board. I did replace all three instead of the bad one as it was only $2.68 for each relay. The most important thing is the pin spacing on the relays, there are different relays that do the same purpose that have different pin postion, they will not fit into postion as the pins are only long enough to fit exact.I live in Canada and a company RAE Industrial Electronics Limited at Burnside Industrial Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia ... Their phone # (902) - 468 - 1238 ... Fax 902-468-5887 ordered them in. The part number on the receipt is ALA2F12 - RELAY,DPST, 3A 12VDC .. The sales order number on the receipt is 43771-2. Well that's about all the info i have, hope it might help with someone else. Paying $10 to fix my amp was well worth it, having a friend at work with electronics experience helps alot too. He did all the leg work for me to find them, bought him a dinner at work for his effort. My dishes at home are rattling again. OYEAH.

Receiver clicks

When you say click Is it a POP out of the speakers?? If the answer is yes then it sounds like a semicondutor such as an IC or driver transistor or preamp is breaking down . You also didnt state if its out of one speaker or both at once. Unless your a tech this is probably something you wont be able to troubleshoot and fix yourself as there are no user serviceable parts in this puppy. Good luck
