Question about Sony STR-V555ES Receiver

Open Question

When I turn the receiver on the relay near the 110V input clicks ~3-6 times per second. When I disconnect the cable to the transformer the clicking stops. I suspect either the relay or transformer, since the relay is a mechanical device I guess that is more likely faulty.

SOURCE: Receiver making alot of clicking noises.

I Have a son STR DE 845 and the speakers make a popping sound when it is in DTS mode what is the problem.

Thanks,

SOURCE: power fault

You probably have shorted rectifiers and/or transistor(s) on standby board. Trouble-shoot rect bridge and cap. Feel stand by circuit transformer for abnormal heat, sure sign

SOURCE: sony str-de845 Powers up, relay clicks, fuses BLOW!

This condition, may be produced by defective components (Q506, Q507). you can remove those transistor, replace the fuses, power-on and wait for relays click. if the fuses not blown again, them replace both transistor.

SOURCE: Sound clicks off Sony STR-DE835 5.1 Channel

THIS UNIT HAS BAD SOLDER CONNECTIONS ON REGULATOR TRANSISTORS,REMOVE BOTTOM AND YOU WILL SEE THE BAD CONNECTIONS.ALSO BE SURE TO RE-TIGHTEN ALL CHASSIC GRD SCREWS AS THIS WILL ALSO CAUSE THE SAME PROBLEM.

SOURCE: Hi, Toroidal transformer in Sakura

Hello shole135, Hi, you need a 110v to 220v step-up transformer with 200 watts power specification. you can visit your local hardware store and find one. Don't replace the toroidal transformer.

the clicking may have been coming from the relay itself, but it doesn't simply mean that the relay is faulty. clicking may also be caused by transformers, indicating that some electronic components have developed SHORT CIRCUIT. try measuring resistance of transistors and diodes near the power unit (unplug/turn the unit OFF of course) check also for the impedance of the output power transformers.
check the amplifier IC for short also.

'clicking' off a few seconds after turned on


Does the receiver work OK?
These are probably electromechanical switches (called relays) which yamaha uses a lot. They use electricity to connect/disconnect something by magnetic force and this causes the "clicks". It is used for example to connect the speakers to the output of apmlifier only after it has finished initializing to protect both the amp and the speakers.
When I turn on my RX-V465 I hear at least one click, it is probably connecting power to the amp. When turning it on with Radio button on remote I hear 3 clicks over 2-3 seconds.
So these clicks are normal and nothing to worry about. They occur also when you switch to the PURE DIRECT mode.

I don't get any front display or any sound when turned on.


Do you hear any clicks? If not, the standby transformer or related circuitry is bad. If you hear 1 relay click...the audio output section is most likely the problem. The first click you hear is the main power relay...and should see display.. the second relay click is the protection circuit relay engaging to let audio to your speakers...if the second click is not heard (it should occur in 3 to 5 seconds) there are shorted output transistors or a shorted output IC trying to blow your speakers with 50 to 75 volts dc. The protection circuit monitors the speaker lines for voltage. They should always read milli-volts only...not even 1 volt.Anyway, good luck

Unit won't power up completely


The clicks you hear are the relay that completes the circuit for 110V AC to the main power transformer. Mine had the same problem and here's how I've gotten it to work. A lightning strike near our house caused it to fail, and I traced it to the power transformer relay activation circuit. The tuner and amp were fine. I found a bad transistor in the relay circuit, but didn't have a replacement on hand, so I soldered a jumper wire across the relay switch connections on the power transformer circuit board. This connects the 110V AC directly to the power transformer. DC Power to the amp and tuner circuits will still be controlled by the power switch, but the transformer will be supplying all the AC voltages to the main board. If there is a real problem with the circuits that load the transformer or the transformer itself, then the fuse will blow. If the fuse doesn't blow then I suspect the problem is just in the power sequencing circuit itself, that is not needed for operation other than to make the unit "Energy Star Compliant". A lot of electronic items have a transformer that is not switched, and only fused, so that the supplies are available at all times.

Kenwood KR V8080 receiver


if you sent 110v down the speaker wires & into the amp you most likely have damaged the audio outputs or the output ic. Look for a big aluminum heatsing & on one side you may find 1 or 2 ic's or numerous transistors, the ic's are hard to check, the transistors are easier to check, if transistors replace in pairs. also check for burnt /open resistors near outputs
