Question about Sony STR-D865

No audio through speakers and no light on volume dial of Sony STR-D865

Today I turned on my receiver and the volume was at about max. I scrambled to turn it down but it shut down after about 2 seconds. Now there is nothing coming through the speakers and the light on the dial is not on. Is there an easy fix or did I fry something? Any assistance would be appreciated.

Volume through speakers is very low - even if I turn up to max volume

check that all the speaker are connected right. some systems won't work right in 6.1 if its not connected right. (please rate me if this helps Thank you)

Sound quit and display shows PROTECTOR Sony STR-D865

This is a common question on this site. Amps of all types have protection circuits to keep them from doing a self meltdown. Testing follows this logic.
1. Remove all speaker wires. 2. Keep the volume down - all the way. 3. Turn the unit on. 4. If it does not trip off, then there is a problem either in a speaker or the wiring. a. Reconnect one at a time until/unless it trips off b. That will tell you where to look further.
If it does trip off, then there is an internal circuit issue in the amp and probably requires professional help to fix.

When i turn up volume on receiver it display protected and then i loose sound on my sony str-d865 receiver

That's a protection circuit in the output of the speakers. It indicates a short, or abnormally low resistance of the speaker itself. Disconnect the speaker wires from the unit, and see if the message goes away. If it did, you have a problem with your wiring, or the speaker itself.

Get a headpone to rca cable (radio shack or best buy) and use any input on the rear of the receiver except phono. You will need to turn the ipod to near max volume.
