Sony cassette stereo - No sound in the afternoons!

10 year old sony cassette stereo in peugeot 306. Sound works fine in the morning. When i come back to it in afternoon, no sound at all. I can't get anything out of it until the next morning when it's fine again! Thought maybe it was to do with heat but last couple of days have been pretty mild and still same problem. Any ideas?

If you can get at the electrical connections for the stereo, check them and spray contact cleaner on anything with connectors on it.

Otherwise replace it.

My sony str dh710 broadcasts sound from tv shows andsome commercials. But sone commercials have no sound. Why?


if your saying that overall the sound works just fine but just some commercials don't have sound , this surely is a cause that not all commercials have Dolby decodable sound , this receiver has a dolby decoder inside it , im betting that you use the dolby sound selection most often , a simple test of theory is to select 2 channel stereo sound in set up and watch same commercials if you got sound now there's your problem , I do ask that you not complain to broadcasters of this (they might fix this) as id rather enjoy missing the entire commercial but no sound would be a viable alternative

Amplifier - TA-AX380; CD Player - CDP-C40; AM/FM Tuner - ST-JX380; FM Stereo/FM-AM Receiver - STR-AV570X, and Stereo Cassette Deck - TC-W380.....all Sony. Very old system, do not have the manuals, they...


Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

Sony TA-AV521 I have had this stereo system with surround sound for years. Recently I am finding that the surround sound mode is not working right. There is a lot of fading in and out whether it is on...


CD's and FM radio are created in 2 stereo channels. To listen to them in Surround, artificial processing has to take place in your receiver, so artifacts and fading are quite common when you do this. When you turn the surround off, your stereo is processing the information properly and it will sound right.

No sound from any source from speakers


check your connections again and ensure you have the audio going out. With many tv's you need to change a setting in the menu, double check that as well.

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.

Sony receiver DA5ES. Unit start arc and shoot off.


Marko,

I own the same unit (since 2001) & have had no problems. I would get it looked at & see what the issue is & what it would cost to fix. Would it be worthwhile? Well you'd have to ask yourself how much $$ you'd be willing to spend on a replacement vs repairing this unit & based on how much you'd be willing to spend, would the specs on a replacement unit measure up. You'd have to ignore things like HDMI inputs to keep it apples to apples.

I've owned various Sony components for a long time. I only had to get one unit fixed one time (a CD player that my one year old decided to do a chin-up on :( ). The unit was 7 years old at the time and my son is now 12!!. the unit still functions flawlessly since being repaired. Sony builds their stuff to last, even after beiung abused.
