Question about Sony STR-DE525

1 Answer

Years of good service...now it keeps blowing fuse

I've had a Sony De525 for almost 10 years and never had any problems with it. It has been moved several times, from coast to coast, as well as around different houses and have never had the slightest problem. The problem started when I unplugged it to hook up my record player..I plugged in the RC cables and the ground..when I turned on my receiver, it blew two fuses, { 8 amp. 150 volt}. Now, when powered on, the display does not light up, no sound comes out, but it does power on, displaying the tone, surround, and cd orange buttons. I could only get 8 amp 250 volt fuses to replace it, this caused it to blow the last two fuses...any suggetions? Thank you

The voltage of the fuse is not the issue. It sounds like you may have some blown internal transistors (probably in the output area). Time for a trip to the repair shop I'm afraid.

i9ndicates that you have dead short problem in a component in the ignition system
could be a bad ground causing excessive current ( arcing) when component is moved or wiring moved
maybe an auto bike auto electrician could pinpoint the problem area
possible a voltage control problem causing excessive current through the fuse , intermittently causing it to blow
Again a bad ground in regulator problem

Fuse keep blowing off


If the fuse keeps blowing, that is an indication that something has failed and is drawing too much current. Most likely it could be a problem with the power supply, such as a shorted rectifier diode or voltage regulator. Another possibility could be a shorted audio output module. Unfortunately, you'll have to take it to a repair center to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can help you further.

Good luck!
