Is there a way to reset the STR DE898/B 7.1 channel Receiver

Reset can mean many things... Input/ output/surround/ or is it saying "Protect" on the display?
If that's the case, unplug, wait a minute, plug it back in and turn on. If it still say's Protect, disconnect the speaker wires and test again. Chances are you have a shorted wire or speaker. If you need something different, post a reply and I will help you further. Hope this helps

No sound

Have you got the speakers on as in the AorB speakers button? It should be located on the front of the amp.

Sony de898 no sound

Could be an internal fuse blown but most later electronics use a special kind of resistor called a varistor. These devices are across the AC line and do nothing until the voltage difference between the two lines, hot & neutral, exceeds a certain voltage; this is typically ~200 volts for 120 service as in the US and higher for 220 service on most of the planet.
They are disc shaped, will be from 4-5mm (~ 3/8") to as much as 25mm (~1") in diameter and if ever zapped, they are charred and with chunks missing.  When their design voltage is exceeded, their resistance drops from near infinite to a few Ohms which then causes the fuse to blow. You can replace the fuse and choose not to replace the varistor but then you will not longer have even that minimal protection against spikes.
For folks in lightning-prone areas, the installation of a 'whole-house' surge suppressor is highly desirable, will cost ~$250 US and have an insurance policy against losses of $10-$25,000 US in case you still lose devices protected.
