I HAVE A SONY RECIEVER STR-DH700, I get no sound

I HAVE A SONY RECIEVER STR-DH700, I get no sound when selecting the FM tuner option. The unit allows the speakers to work during the AUTO CAL option but gives me an error 20 which it should since I have not purchased my forward speakers as of yet. Thanks..Darrell

Make sure the FM antenna is connected and in a good place then check to see if the A-B speaker selector is selected properly.check to see that the sound field is set properly, My 800 allows for several different options and if your speaker wires are reversed or not in the correct position front left at front left etc it will not send the signal to those speakers. try using the TEST TONE feature if you have one it will send a signal to each speaker in sequence (LF< C< RF<in order) it will go all the way around to see if they are connected properly, that way you can tell if they are connected at all or in the wrong spot on the back interface. I dont know if that is what you meant by AUTO CAL, but that is a seperate feature when you use the connected mic to determine range, height and distance to the position in the room you are most likely to be seated for optimal sound.

How do you connect sony str-de 698 fm receiver to television, cable box and cd player


Connect it's two audio plugs, likely to be coloured red and white, to corresponding sockets on any device that has them and select that input on the device. You should then hear your tuner.
Depending on FM signal strength where you live you may need an aerial, some is always better than none.

No sound when hooking receiver to subwoofer using standard red RCA cable. Do I need a subwoofer cable?? I have turned my tuner subwoofer to YES, powered up receiver and subwoofer but nothing.


Probably not if it takes RCA input, but the receiver needs to be informed of the sub's presence and hw you want to share low frequencies among the rest of the speakers and itself. Then you need to set the relative levels using test tones, which also proves the sub works.

STR-DH700 won't power up unless I unplug-plug it.


This is a logic problem with the internal microprocessor. A quick experiment: Turn the unit on for about 2 minutes and shut it down. Doe sit power uip in this case? If so, I'd suspect that the heat generated during normal operation is creating an internal problem thaty is preventing the micro from recognizing the "off" condition. The power data line is hung and is not being recognizwed by the micro so any attempt to turn the unit on will fail. The unplug/re-plug essentially clears or resets the unit.

If the unit is new, return it for warranty repair. It will be important to describe when the unit fails however. Try to see how long it must remain on for the problem to occur.

Update this with your results if the unit is not under warranty and we'll try to narrow it down.

Thanks,
Dan

Sound from reciever


LFE (ONE CABLE ON THE SUB TO SUB OUT ON AVR) OR stereo L/R analog cable from sub to tape in/or out on avr (depends on AVR) LFE connection the sub turns up with the AVR - the stereo cable threw tape in/out on AVR only turns up via its own onboard amp volume from AVR has no affect.

You appear to have reprogrammed your remote. Remotes can work with other units made by the same company. But the keys will pass out different signals to each unit. You need to find the correct code for your unit.
This could involve selecting a combination of keys on the remote and possibly some controls on the unit. Then entering a numbers on the remote.
It could be that the unit has the option of selecting a remote mode 2 also. So you will need to select it back to one or whatever it is supposed to be.

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.
