SOURCE: STR-DB930 Receiver

Hi. I have a similar problem, where the rear and more recently, the centre speakers cut in and out. The relays that connect them click on and off rapidly, like morse code! Annoying, especially losing the centre, as in a 5.1 mix the centre carries most of the dialogue. The voices will be very hard to hear without the centre speaker. I tipped my STRDB930 over, and removed the slotted panel under neath. This gains access to the under side of the bottom circuit board. There, you will find the solder joints of the 3 bottom relays, the fourth being mounted on a narrow strip of board above this. Shine a torch through the top onto the blue relays, and you will see where the solder joints are. I noticed that 4 of these joints looked like they were broken, so I re-soldered them. The centre seems ok now, although it's too early to tell. My receiver still clicks, but if that is comming from the relay mounted higher up, I don't know how to gain access to this easily. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: receiver str-v444es no sound on headphones or

discharge the output circuit! If you don't you will blow a 10 ohm resistor every time. I've worked on hundreds of these receivers I know. They need the output circuit soldered at the voltage driver ic's and quite possibly some capicitors replaced on the digital board. The caps mounted near the heat sinks dry up the fastest. These are nice amps. Larry's Electronics Sacramento Ca. ledstiles@hotmail.com

How do I get this system working properly again?


Here's what I would do:

1) Wherever you get sound, hook up each speaker in turn to validate they are working. If you have another, known working system to do this with, even better.

2) While testing your speakers on the known good system, once a speaker has been proven working, validate that your sound source (and cable) is working by using it as a source once everything else has been validated.

3) Now that you've isolated and proven everything but the receiver, put the receiver in stereo mode and try it out as a simple left/right amp. Once you get this far you will be able to do the surround stuff, but only with a surround encoded (ex: AC3) data stream.

If you need more help, just ask.

My surround speakers are too loud. I have adjusted the speaker level, speaker distance and surround level but none of these seem to change. When i go back into menu it does reflect the changes but doesn't...


Did you try changing the front & center speakers to a higher level as well as setting the surrounds to a lower level? Are all speakers using the same wire gage?

5.1 Surround sound not working


Maybe the surround processor is having a bad day... My kenwood would do similar and a reset was necessary to correct. Have you tried resetting the system? On my Sony STR DE 597 this is accomplished by powering off. Then while holding the 2 channel button down (front face plate) power on. A reset message is displayed. Your model may be similar but check your manual or download the PDF of the manual from Sony's support website. Hope this helps

No sound from rear speakers during test tone usng Sony STR-DE475


I had this problem last night.

To solve it, you can reset the amp by:

1) Put the receiver on stand-by
2) Hold down "MODE" button and press on button
3) "S.F. CLR" appears in the display and surround is back on.


Good luck

Can't get surround sound when watching tv


your RCA on your tv is acting like its in mono..it may be a problem with the jacks.  alternatively..you can buy a splitter and split teh side that sounds stronger (L) or (R) with a male to 2 female spliter out of the tv then back into l/r input on your reciever... It wont give you surround stereo...but it will soudn a whole lot better.
