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!

How can i get the dts sound field to work. Shouldn't it automatically switch to that sound field. I have a samsung bluray dvd that hooked up to it.  The dolby pro logic and pro logic 2 indicator...


If you are playing media that has both dolby digital audio and dts audio, your player and your receiver will decode the first audio codec listed first by default unless you select it otherwise yourself. If your remote or receiver has an A.F.D. (auto format decode) button, press it until your display shows that the sound source is dolby digital or DTS, whichever sound mode it was you wanted when you started your DVD.

Audio protect keeps turning off my receiver (sony STR-DE597)


That is the common symptom of the defected STK-IC in power amp.section that busted already or just a loose connection.First try to resolder the pins of STK-IC and also all component parts joint in power amplifier section if its works! if not that is the time you replace it, so it works normal again.

Hope it may helps you...

Dark display on Sony STR-DE597 receiver


Check for bad solder connections on the display itself. If none use a voltmeter and check dc voltage on the first and last pins of the display. should be about 20v dc. If you don't have the dc voltage check for a bad transistor or resistor in the power supply. It could also be other thing but this is where you should start.

Everytime I put the volume up it cuts off saying protect...! How do i turn off the protect to allow sound to increase.?


I would check all speaker connections and speakers, check the speakers with an ohm meter and compare the resistance with all matching speakers and on the nameplate if there is one, my amp did that last year and i found a burnt coil in one speaker ( center channel) hooked my old one back up and solved the problem for me. GOOD LUCK

Spot working


Hi..
It's broken internally..Yup.
Find someone local to look at it. A TV repair shop even.
NOT Sony.
Get an estimate first.
