Question about Sony STR-DE535 Receiver

1 Answer

Power On Displays Flashing "Protected"

I have a Sony STR-DE535 amplifier and sound system. Whenever it is powered on, in the display window is the legend "Protected." I turned all the speakers off position and when I powered on again, had still the same problem. The same "Protected" alert displays whatever program I request from the amplifier, be it radio stations or TV or whatever, and the system does not function. No sound at all, not even static. I checked the troubleshooting guide in the back of the Users Manual; no help. Any help in finding a solution to this "Protected" problem will be sincerely appreciated.

Blown Stereo Receiver

If the output transistors are shorted they cause burns on the resistors and even even blow the AC fuse and your receiver will not come ON. I used to enjoy fixing, these AMPs this was many years ago. Any how, repairing this unit will be more than a $100.00 my advice to you is BUY a NEW 1.

Good luck

What fuses does the sony str-de535 need

I beleive it is a 6.3amp gma. It will be printed on the circuit board next to the fuse holder and on the fuse itself. If it is open(blown) you probably will need to replace a set of the output transisters (mp1620 and mn2488). DO NOT use a slow-blow fuse this will cause more damage to your receiver.
