SOURCE: Sony str-de675 receiver has no sound at speakers when turned on.

This unit is having a problem with the preamplifier and power amplifier section. The reason to suspect this is that you can still hear sound, this is not likely if you ahd a failure in the power supply section. The unit may have had a failure in the amplifier areas of these sections, These are the signal amplifier sections that increase the power of the signal to drive the sound in the speakers .The Unit is probably in the protection mode reducing all power to prevent further damage to the rest of the receiver. You can go to the www.sony.com website support section and look in the frequently asked question and troubleshooting sections for problems like yours and see if they have any answers. On this website you can also find customer support. Ask them questions about the problem and see if they have any solutions.If all this fails to answer you problem, you can try opening the unit and looking for the problem yourself. Only work on the unit with it unpluged from the power source. Take off the top cover and look for any damaged areas, on the pc boards.They would be brown areas from excessive heat due to component overheating and possible failure.Look for capacitors that may have gone bad, they will be bulging from the top and bottom and may be leaking material from inside of them. Any component like this needs to be replaced. You may find burnt resistors and other failed components that will require a digital voltmeter to test.If you have expperience with this type of repair you might be able to isolate the problem and replace the parts. This may require the help of service information due to the complexity of the receiver's operations. Try to get a schematic or service manual from the web or a repair shop. This will have all the parts and a diagram of the all the different sections of the receiver. Usuall there is a power supply section, a tuner section, a preamplifier section, and a amplifier section. There also could be a equalizer section and other sections according the functions of the receiver. The failure most likely has occured in the preamplifier section or amplifier section. The problem in the preamplifier section could be a signal diode failure or a signal amplifier failure. in the amplifier section the problem could be in the output power devices which may be transistors or ic's depending on the type of output amplifier use in the unit. Usually not that hard to find with good service information and test eauipment.You may want to take this to a school that teaches electronic servicing and see if they will work on the unit for you for the cost of parts and a small labor fee. Call them first and see if they can help you out. I hope this helps you with your problem.

SOURCE: I HAVE A SONY RECIEVER STR-DH700, I get no sound

make sure the FM antenna is connected and in a good place then check to see if the A-B speaker selector is selected properly.check to see that the sound field is set properly, My 800 allows for several different options and if your speaker wires are reversed or not in the correct position front left at front left etc it will not send the signal to those speakers. try using the TEST TONE feature if you have one it will send a signal to each speaker in sequence (LF< C< RF<in order) it will go all the way around to see if they are connected properly, that way you can tell if they are connected at all or in the wrong spot on the back interface. I dont know if that is what you meant by AUTO CAL, but that is a seperate feature when you use the connected mic to determine range, height and distance to the position in the room you are most likely to be seated for optimal sound.

SOURCE: Sony STR-K670P Surround Reciever. No output from

This is a common problem that a lot of people have with this system. The problem is in the connection of the Left and Right Speakers to the receiver. I had this problem too.
What you need to do is actually open up the receiver using a screwdriver. Once it is opened up you will see a circuit board and lots of wires. Look for the red and blue wire that should be pretty easily visible. Cut each one, then strip the ends some, and reattach the ends but to the opposite color- make sure to solder it as well. On some models they messed up the connections and it got switched. Once you do this, the left and right speakers should work great. Hope this helped!!

If you are installing surround speakers, they are connected to the SURROUND SPEAKERS terminals LR, RR, and center (front). This model does not have an active wooker connection. The FRONT SPEAKERS B terminals are for connection of a second set of front speakers

PROTECT shows every time I turn my reciever on. It's a SONY model #STR-DE335


Turn it OFF. Look for shorted speaker wires or shorted speakers.

None found? Disconnect all speaker wires and try to turn it on.

Turns on ok? One of the speakers/cable pairs is shorted. Check them again.

No good? It's dead. take it to a tech.

I have a new house that had speakers built into the cieling. I bought an onkyo to push all eight speakers. the reciever went into protect mode. i had an old reciever and hooked four speakers to the onkyo...


you can check them with a ohm meter, hook it to the wires that you hook to the reciever and if you get a reading it is good if no reading it is bad wires

Just hooked up Coax cable; now talking is barely audible


is the center speaker turned up in the reciever speaker settings? each speaker can be adjusted to a level that is higher or lower or all the same as the rest. also is the dolby digital turned on in the reciever settings? and changing the surround sound pre set sounds can also improve the type of audio you are listening to in 6.1 surround sound

Can't get surround sound when watching tv


your RCA on your tv is acting like its in mono..it may be a problem with the jacks.  alternatively..you can buy a splitter and split teh side that sounds stronger (L) or (R) with a male to 2 female spliter out of the tv then back into l/r input on your reciever... It wont give you surround stereo...but it will soudn a whole lot better.
