Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Thanks for your reply re my search for parts for my Sony EX57ES receiver. I clicked on "Reply," but nothing happened, so I'm sending a new message.

The whole reason that I'm trying to salvage my old Sony receiver is that I've looked into replacing it, but I keep getting told that the electronics industry today considers it products to be like Bic pens---use them for a couple of years and throw them away. I've also been told that the sound won't be as good as with older models.

I can only afford to spend $500 or less. Do you have any suggestions or comments?

Thanx again,

Well..that's a noble attempt to divert electronics from the landfill. however, parts availability in electronics has about a 2 to 3 year life. so if you find one, it's going to be from someone, like you, that has one around.

I need to buy a remote for the SONY DVP NS700P. Radio Shack has universal remotes, but I wonder whether I can find one specifically for the SONT DVD player.

My AVR-2106 receiver will only stay on for a few seconds before clicking off. We have disconnected all components and speakers from unit to eliminate short circuit/wire problems and still with only power...

Hi amy, Your vivid description of the problem confirms that the protect circuit is cutting off the amp on detection of a high current drain. The possible fault is the failure of the Audio Power Output Mosfets. You will need to remove the mother board to test the stage and confirm to replace one of the stages.
The second possibility is that the protect circuit by itselff could be defective and cause a faulty bias to trigger the cut off. This must be checked by a stage by stage Voltage check.
Since the removal of the mother board requires some experience so as not to tamper the set , you must decide on the course of action.
The other option I can suggest is to call up the Denon call centre and check up the nearrest service centre, send and receive the set to them by courier after confirming the fault and estimated costs. If this justifies then it must be thought of.
I am sure you can search for one as I am not sure the place of your residence... try a search on the web for Denon service support with your location/city.
I hope my advice helps but please open the cover to have a look inside for visible damages.
Good day

Hello, I need help with my sony str-de197 receiver. Then I hit power on button, there is a click sound inside the box, but nothing happens, there is nothing on display too. I have checked 2 fuse's, it's...

It sounds like the switch might be OK mechanically but not electrically. Have a look to see if you can check the connections on the switch. Perhaps there is a broken or loose or bad solder joint.

Copy that and congratulations with the Sony STR DG910. I am assuming this posting was prompted by an email from the FixYa. A probable reason was that I requested a review of your posting here. This was your original problem and for some unknown reason(s), your rating/evaluation was not reflected. I would appreciate if you can go back to the link and rate solutions as you seem them fit.

Again congratulations with the Sony and thank you very much for taking the time out and providing an update.

You need to go to SETTINGS, Sound Settings, then choose the correct output for your needs there.

If you have any more questions, just reply to this thread.
