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

What might make a preamp in a reciever just stop working?


If when you switch to the main amp you have to turn the volume up really loud to hear it, then it might be the pre-amp IC has failed, though it is passing the signal from the inputs. Though I'm concerned that the surround functions are also not working. You might need to look into the circuit around the pre-amp more closely. There might be another IC device that controls more of the functions that is playing up instead. You will clearly need the service manual for this problem.

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.

Not loud enough, sound is low. plays well but very low sound


Hi, sounds to me like you have got it connected to your amp via an aux or cd input. Turntables need to be connected via phono input. If no phono input is available you need to run it through a mixer or preamp first then into your amp. I recommend you get a good quality preamp with RIAA EQ curve included. I have designed and built our own Styluscity branded preamp. There are cheaper options on the market however when it comes to audio products quality is very much relevant to cost. Cheers john.

Loud buzzing noise


Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

Everything works except the radio. It appears


If have factory amp you have to find the turn ou wre for the amp and hook it up to the amp turn on wire from the radio(bootleg way sound might cut in & out) or go to local sound shop and get a bypass for the amp

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

No sound from subs and rear speakers...


Make sure the Ipod is plugged into the AV input source. Then you may have to go through the menu to select AV1 or AV2 input. This should take care of the problem. Good luck

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

Sound cuts out


If you listen to cd's and the sound dos'ent cut out then it cant be the amp. It could be the audio cables are intermittant between the amp and the dvd playerr or they are loose or corroded a little. or ppossible the input your using is going bad on the stereo sytem but I wouldnt think that the whole system was blown if the radio and the cd plays normal.. check out the causes I listed and let us know if you need more assistance\..:)
