Question about Sony STR-DE885 Receiver
I just noticed that my Sony speakers/amp (for TV/dvd etc) have a constant, low pitched sound through them.....i have tried unplugging everything bar the FM tuner and the speakers and i still get the sound/distortion. Pretty sure it isnt all the speakers as i have tried the two rear ones which i hardly ever use.....seems to be something from the amp?? I have tried a factory reset on that but no luck.... Can anyone suggest what could be causing it and how i can fix it! Thanks
Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds? yes & it is common problem. And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers? not at all. The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV. they are right that your problem is not due to tv. it is due to cable box/service? yes but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.

It sounds to me like you both are having a problem with a capacitor going bad. some capacitors act as a noise filter and it sounds like you both have a bad one. If you are any good with a volt-ohm meter that reads capacitors you should check them to make sure they are at their proper values which will be posted on the capacitor. then replace it. if you dont know how to use a v-o meter then take it to a shop and have them replace it

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.
