Question about Sony STR-DE545 Receiver
It starts working and then makes a click sound and the audio turns off.
I used to be able to hit the top of the receiver and get it to turn back on, but no longer
Hello Fixya customer,
Thank you for your question.
Are you getting on the display, possibly a "P" or "Protect" that indicates it is in the protect mode?
Hitting the top of the receiver indicates a possible intermittent component or board connection. The receiver will shut down when the Microprocessor receives various fault conditions, including shorted speaker and wires, but if it develops an internal fault it will also shut down to protect itself and the speakers.
Remove all speaker wires and inspect th terminals for any stray wires shorting the terminals.
If it still shuts down, then a professional servicer would be required.
Thanks for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.
