your problem is a bad solder connection of the relay linked to the lautspeaker sockets. I had the same problem and googled for the solution. Since I resoldered the pins everything is fine. That problem is well known and happens to a lot of Sony receivers.
I can send you a link with a detailed how-to-do solution with pictures, however it's written in german language. But you can use some online translators.

Try these simple trick to find out yor remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
If the remote is OK, then the problem with the Remote Sensor or related components of the receiver.

make sure that all input cables are in the correct positon also make sure that any inputs you are using don't have a macrovision in them that will also kill your sound due to copyright laws and stuff but main thing check all wires coming in to receiver and if you need more inputs go to walmart and get a rca splitter basicaly its a 1 in two out connection to add more cables in the input

if you have a tv with outputs you can connect audio wires from your tv output to your audio receiver input and you will have surround sound for everything connected to your tv

Testimonial: "That's a good idea. I hope that my TV will output the hdmi audio through the optical output on it. Thanks"
Disconnect all speakers at the receiver, then replace the fuse and check power again. If your lucky, it will be ok. More than likely though, the power transformer and capacitors have been shorted by a voltage spike or drop. If you don't have a good line conditioning surge like a Panamax, APC, or Furman, get one! it will save you $$$ and aggravation in the long run. Hope this helps.
