Question about Sony STR-DE597 Receiver

1 Answer

STR-DE597 Display is not visible

For a few years now my receiver has been working without problems. Recently I found that when the receiver was turned on it immediately went into Protect Mode, however, and I was able to resolve that issue. In resolving that issue I encountered another, that being the display is not visible when the unit is on. When I turn the unit on, the display is visible for 1 or 2 seconds, then it goes out. Everything else on the receiver appears to be working correctly. How can I get the display to become visible?

    Hi,



    I have the same problem with the STR-DE597. For quite a while now, the display area has been totally dark. The amber indicator lights on the mode switches are fine, but the green tuning & setup display is gone.



    This started several months ago when I pulled the unit out of the cabinet for cleaning and then placed it back. When I turned it back on, it was black.



    Probably not repairing, but still operates - just a pain to work with. Anyone have any suggestions on what can be done? I've tried the "reset" suggested, but no luck.



    Thanks!!

Try a complete RESET by completely switching OFF mains power and leaving for at least 40secs. before commencing a new setting-up procedure.
Let's know if this does work it back to normality!

I have had my Denon AVR-485 for a few years without a problem, just recently when you turn it on it shuts down within a few seconds. Any suggestions?


Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light...


Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

Nothing shows up in the display. This has only been recently after a power glitch. The display lights when a call is made or received.


I unplugged the base unit from the wall for more than 10 minutes. Sometime after I plugged it back in (not immediately)the display re-appeared.

Immediate shut


Unplug all the speaker wires first, then unplug the unit from the wall for at least 24 hours, The plug back in without the speaker wires or anything else plugged in. Then see if it goes to the protection mode. If it does not, plug in each speaker at a time, and see if any speaker, when hooked up, makes the receiver shut down. If it does shut down, My friend, I'm afraid you will need to take this unit into a repair shop, OR get a new unit. Good Luck

Hi, You should try to see, on main board, the ground G2(TP00385), just to make sure if the screw is too tight. Its location on Schematic Diagram (Main) is E8. All the best, Rasgador
