Question about Sony STR-DA80ES Receiver

Protector flashing sony da80es

Protector flashing. Unplugged all cords, all speakers...everything...for several days and still flashing. No sound. Absolutely no technical assistance from Sony whatsoever. I am leery of bringing it to any service center unless I know what the problem is. I don't want to get ripped off. Can this be repaired without spending $500. Is is worth it?

    Thank you. I will try that. Can this fuse be purchased at Radio Shack?? I have read elsewhere that it could be the amp board.

I have a Sony receiver model Str - de 435 it constantly flash Protector and I tried everything to fix this any ideas


The protector indicator usually indicates that one of your amplifiers has shorted output transistors. This is not a user repairable problem and the amp will have to be taken into the shop for service.

My reciverer says the word "PROTECTOR" I Checked for short at audio OUTPUT. None


Hello,
Try disconnecting the speakers completely, and also all sources then try it again. If the problem stops, start reconnecting sources and speakers one at a time to see if you can find where the problem lies. If you disconnect everything and protector stays on, than maybe you have a heat issue or an internal component is damaged.
Good Luck

My reciverer says the word protector


The Word "Protecter" is you have a shorted Speaker or Wire to Speaker, or the Sony has a blown Power Amplifier

Receiver blew and flashes "protector" at all times. Disconnected speaker cables and still no change.


A problem has been detected internal to the unit and it has been shutdown to prevent further damage. The typical cuase is shorted output transistors or a defective voltage amplifier IC. Either repair will run about $25-$40 for parts.

My sony str-d1o15 says protector


I got this from Sony site, I am doing it to mine now, unplugged it first.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the word PROTECT or PROTECTOR is flashing on the A/V receivers display.
  1. Check the speaker wires and speakers for proper connections.
  2. Reduce the volume level. IMPORTANT: If the receiver is played back at maximum volume level it may enter the protect mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors.
  3. Disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
  4. Ensure the top of the receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
  5. If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high. IMPORTANT: Some receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies through alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specific information.
  6. Unplug the AC power cord for about 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.
