Protect Mode With Sony str-de595

I have had this amp for several years now. I have been experiencing 2 separate, but possibly related problems with this amp:

1) It has always gone into "protect" mode when playing DVD 5-channel music albums at even low volume. It doesn't happen immediately, but usually after about the 2nd or 3rd song on the album. With films it was always fine however at any volume.

2) In the past few weeks, it has started going into protect mode with any 5-channel DVD movies as well at even mid-volume.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Dear Robert,
    I have a Sony Amplifier STR-DE545. It goes into "Protect" mode just seconds when I turn it on no matter which channel (DVD, Tuner, Video, CD...) I use. Do you think I am having the same problem as you mentioned to STR-DE595?
    How much does it cost for fixing it by a repair store? I am debating if it is worth to fix it.
    Thank you for your help in advance
    Henry

Hi snark63

Ypou have an intermittent problem that sounds to be heat related... the more work the amp does, the more heat generated by the output stages. This will be aggravating some poor solder joints that are cracked or dry. The unit needs some repair work done in these areas. If you have good experience with a soldering iron, the cure for this is to resolder the power stages of the unit, or any other solder joints that look to be failing.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this advice, hit the ASK button Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you.

I have a Sony STR-DE 597 reciever. I have been using it fine for a few years with no problems and it sounded great. I turn the unit on recently and a message was displayed on the unit that said PROTECT....


Protect will usually show up if the receiver was turned up too loud to the point where the speakers will crackle, the receiver will switch to protect to not damage anything. Unplug it for about 30 seconds and check all the audio wiring in the back to make sure everything is plugged in good and tight and no loose cables or stray pieces of copper audio wire and plug it back in.

The SONY STR DE595 goes into "protect" mode upon turning it on.I recut all speaker wires & vacuumed the receiver ...unplugged,differenet outlets...etc.Any advice?


The protect thing is to do with an overload. It's more than likely that something in the main amp section has failed (perhaps a transistor on the big heat sink). The cause often speaker wiring touching together. You should look carefully at the this section for damage or burning. If you have a ohm meter you can test the transistors. If you place the probes on the terminals of each transistor and you get a responce like you had touch the probes together, you have located the source of the overload.

Why can't I play a turntable through my "Sony str-de595


Turntables have a very low output level. Receivers with a phono input have a op-amp to boost the signal level.

What you can do: Check the turn table it may have a line level switch under the rubber mat, otherwise you can get a phono amp ($20-$40) to boost the signal. and input it to any unused input on the receiver.

Sony STR-D715 Protect Mode


Hello,
This is a common problem...
It is in fact a bad power-amp module.
I have repaired quite a few of these receivers by replacing it.
The module is inexpensive. I Googled the Part number and found several sources for it.

Good luck!

Sony STR-D611 receiver goes into protect mode when turned on.


I cleaned the contacts on the transistors and it's working great now. Previously, I spilled some drink on the unit and it went into protect mode and it was in the power amp section. It's all up and running again. Thanks for the info. --Steve B.

check/replace your speaker wires. If a wire came loose, it will go into "protect" mode and shut down, to protect from a short circuit.
