Question about Sony STR-DE525
There is a feature" called PROTECTOR. It protects the system from short circuit or dangerously high volume levels, the system will shut down and go into this protection mode to avoid blowing speakers or damaging other equipment connected to it. How can it be fixed so it can work again?
Is there a reset for this

The output transistors are probably defective. These are MN and MP transistors available from Sony and run about $12 each. There may be other components in the output stage that need to be replaced as well. Expect about $25-$40 in parts plus the local labor rate.

It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be your output drivers- the MOSFETS/IC's fitted for both the channels, Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise like a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.
You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board, maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias , maybe a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the protect is off then check for short on the speakers.
