SOURCE: My Sony STR-DG600 Receiver constantly goes into Protect Mode when using FM or XM.

Check to see if the antenna is firmly connected and not making contact with the receiver chassis or other inputs/outputs.

Try disconnecting all of your speakers, and then turn on you unit. If you have a defective speaker, or a short in your wires, your unit will go into protect mode. If your unit seems ok with the speakers disconnected, then turn unit off, hook up one of the speaker leads and try it. This way you can isolate the problem.......

Good Luck,

Eric

This can be shorted output transistors (common) or a defective voltage amplifier IC. WIthout taking measurements inside, there is no way for me to make that determination. In any case, this should be a relatively simple repair for a shop that repairs audio gear. Expect a parts cost in the $25-$40 range.

SOURCE: Sony STR-DE197 AM-FM Receiver. Has

Inside the Receiver there are electronic components mounted on the aluminum

heatsink ( Audio Output Power Transistors )



it may looks like these :



MN2488 ( Q753 )


palaboy_78.jpg



and usually paired with MP1620 ( Q754 )


palaboy_79.jpg



You may have to check on those two pairs of power transistors

and replace in pairs.


( which means if any of the two is bad , have them both replaced )




Check also the audio signal on the right channel input , if it

is on the same level of those of the left channel.



These components are available at:

My stereo receiver Sony STR 434S is drifting, changes stations alone. I put one station and it drifts away to another one.

I had the same problem with another FM tuner. I decided to buy a different one, and in the case the one that I bought, I made sure that there were no tiny push buttons or digital displays. My point is, that after numerous problems with digital units, I find the old analog tuners to be more reliable, and no glitches. Dial knobs, real switches.

My str de 925 will no lock on a radio station

Insure that the antenna is connected securely on their respective antenna

input, Stations will not lock , if the signal is low.


For FM :

• Wire antenna is applicable if your distance to the nearest FM

is about a km or less, other wise use a VHF TV antenna.


for AM :

• These antenna is directional, you may need to extend the wires

so as to receive AM stations.

STG DR510 no sound on left front channel

Can I assume the calibration procedure also didn't work for the Front left channel? (It's not a "surround" if it's in the front). Switch the receiver to Stereo mode to eliminate any DSP actions. Tune an FM station to eliminate any external device or cable issues. What do you hear from the two Front speakers?

OK? Select a DSP surround mode. Check all modes. What happens?

If the channel goes dead using some or all DSP modes there's probably something wrong with the processor. If they all work...

Isolate the source that exhibits the problem.

It was a bad left channel cable somewhere, wasn't it?

DOES NOT PICK UP FM CHANNELS CLEARLY

Does the receiver work for AM? I need to isolate the problem circuit. Please try an AM station and update this.

Manually tuning the reciever

you should be able to tune in manually.
press tune
press fm or am
press d. tuning
enter the frequency of the station 4 or 5 digits ie 9370 or 10450

another thing to look into would be getting a yagi fm antenna, they are directional and although you may have to rotate it for best results, they work great.
