Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I own a Sony stero FM/AM receiver STR-DE697 and it is used as the hub in my home theatre. A problem as arisen recently. One channel - Video 2 - which is used for TV fed from a freeview box, only gives the picture in black and white. The problem switched on when we were retuning the freeview box. It is most likely the STR since using an alternative freeview box gives the same effect. Other inputs (video recorder and DVD) are OK. Any ideas on how I can fix the problem? Thanks.

Speakers stop working


This is either a loose connection internally or a dirty control such as the volume control. Both of these will require a trip to the shop

I have a problem with Sony STR-de697. the problem is that no means no sound is heard on AM / FM and anywhere else, please for assistance. thanks


AM and FM have mute circuit that no signal comes thru antenna (hope you installed external antenna ) no sound generates at all ? with computer terminolgy "garbage in ,garbage out"
Additonally , If this happens on CD,DVD or casette as well
What about speaker selector? A or B ,(based on your speaker wiring ) is properly selected or not?

Video but no audio


This receiver does not support audio via HDMI. You need to connect BD player via spdif cable. Use optical or coax depending on what does the BD player support - receiver supports both.

Hi Plasie, unfortunately you cannot upgrade this level of electronics easily, nor cheaply. Updating the whole rig is you only answer
