Question about Sony STR-DB940 Receiver

No Sound? Had my amp up fairly loud playing from the CD input when the sound just stopped. Everything with the amp appears to function as normal. Is there any sort of internal fuse or something that may have blown?

Yes !! it should be some kind of circuit breaker , if system detects overload ,it simply disconnect the outputs , should automatically restore the sound , when you turn it off and on again , thats in most cases , oh !! check also the main speakers ,they have internal fuse as well , at least the expensive ones , like INFINITY . HOPE THIS HELPS

Why does my avr 100 say OPTI.when i try to play the radio, and no sound comes out


It is trying to input a signal via the Optical digital input. You need to switch the input control on the front panel or remote to Analog.

Sound is really quiet with inputs


Hello. Please be sure that you are plugging your iPod into the tape in, or play, and not into the record out, or record. If you have these reversed, you will greatly lower the signal level going to the amplifier.

Plug the player in somewhere else besides the PHONO input.

"PHONO" is the only designated connection on an audio device that is literal and exclusive. Nothing but PHONO will work right on it because old-school turntables require it to preamplify the tiny current produced by a Phono cartridge.

I imagine if you REALLY listened hard to the result you have you would find the bass is WAY too.

Google 'RIAA curve' to understand why.

Check the input cables from the source you are playing at both ends. Sounds like an input problem, not a speaker problem. Twist the RCA connectors as you push them in to make sure the connection is good.

Be sure youve selected the optical output option on your ps3 (in sound options on your XMB) ... now on the back on the amp under the optical input it says CD. Select CD input using the toggle know or your remote and then on the front of the amp press the button labeled"signal select"(in between DSP select

Denon dra-95vr receiver has no sound out. All


Two things to check. First, the 95VR can be deceiving because it has a "variable loudness" control that some may mistake for volume. The actual volume is controlled by the big up and down arrows on the upper right side. If the volume is turned up, you should see the volume bar graph display show up. If none of the inputs are giving you volume, and the volume is turned up, then try running the output from the processor loop output in the back to another amplifier. The processor out is jumpered to the processor in for normal operation. Missing jumpers could cause a problem also. If there is sound coming to the processor out, then you have a problem with the power amplifiers. Best to refer that to a technician.

No sound from my record turntable into my computer.


If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...

Setting the Pre-amp Switch
For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal
stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch
is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center
(Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO
input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF”
position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input,
set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and
connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other
high-level input on the amplifier (described later).

Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
enough
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
cartridge body.

You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.

Number of inputs


Each CD Player has audio out put amplifier circuit and this output amp remains Mute until it receive signal to out it. While using Y-Connector, when you try to listen one player sound, other goes to Mute as its in Stop position and caused to minimize the out put of other player which is being played. That's why you listen good sound if just one is connected. If you want to connect both players at one amplifier, you need at-least 2 inputs in amplifier and since your Fisher amp has not 2 inputs, so I suggest to buy another amp equipped with 2 or more inputs. Hope this info will help you.

Unable to hear dvd audio when dvd playing on Sony STR-DE575


Hi The first thing to do is disconnect the red and white audio cables from the back of the receiver, and plug them directly into the tv. If you then have sound from the DVD, then you have eliminated the possability of no audio coming out of the DVD player. If the DVD player checks out fine, then I would try plugging the jacks into another aux input on the receiver, and select that and see what happens. Also, if there is a "tape monitor" button on your Sony, make sure it is turned off. I'll assume the receiver has sound from other functions, so it would be rare for one of the inputs to just stop working, (but certainly not impossible), I'm not familiar with that model, and normally I would say it could just be a dirty selector switch, but since you mentioned having a remote, then switching between inputs is done by the microprocessor, not a physical switch, so if you cannnot get sound through using another input, then it could be expensive to repair. Hope this helps, and good luck!
