On operation
Additional Information
Before connecting other components, be sure to turn
off and unplug the receiver.
Precautions
On cleaning
On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the receiver and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do
not use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or
solvent such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any question or problem concerning your
receiver, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.
On power sources
Additional Information
• Before operating the receiver, check that the
operating voltage is identical with your local power
supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate at the rear of the receiver.
• The receiver is not disconnected from the AC power
source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall
outlet, even if the receiver itself has been turned off.
• If you are not going to use the receiver for a long
time, be sure to disconnect the receiver from the wall
outlet. To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the
plug itself; never pull the cord.
• (Models of area code U, CA only)
One blade of the plug is wider than the other for the
purpose of safety and will fit into the wall outlet only
one way. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into
the outlet, contact your dealer.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On heat buildup
Although the receiver heats up during operation, this is
not a malfunction. If you continuously use this receiver
at a large volume, the cabinet temperature of the top,
side and bottom rises considerably. To avoid burning
yourself, do not touch the cabinet.
On placement
• Place the receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation to prevent heat buildup and prolong the
life of the receiver.
• Do not place the receiver near heat sources, or in a
place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust or
mechanical shock.
• Do not place anything on top of the cabinet that
might block the ventilation holes and cause
malfunctions.
• Use caution when placing the receiver on surfaces
that have been specially treated (with wax, oil,
polish, etc.) as staining or discoloration of the surface
may result.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any of the following
difficulties while using the receiver, use this
troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the
problem.
There is no sound or only a very low-level
sound no matter which component is
selected.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected securely and correctly.
• Check that both the receiver and all components
are turned on.
• Check that you have selected the correct
component on the receiver.
• Check that MASTER VOLUME –/+ is not set at
“VOL MIN”.
• Check that the SPEAKER A or SPEAKER B is
not set to off (page 17).
• Press MUTING on the remote to cancel the
muting function.
There is no sound from a specific component.
• Check that the component is connected correctly
to the audio input jacks for that component.
• Check that the cord(s) used for the connection is
(are) fully inserted into the jacks on both the
receiver and the component.
• Check that you have selected the correct
component on the receiver.
There is no sound from one of the front
speakers.
• Connect a pair of headphones to the PHONES
jack to verify that sound is output from the
headphones. If only one channel is output from the
headphones, the component may not be connected
to the receiver correctly. Check that all the cords
are fully inserted into the jacks on both the
receiver and the component. If both channels are
output from the headphones, the front speaker
may not be connected to the receiver correctly.
Check the connection of the front speaker which is
not outputting any sound.
The left and right sounds are unbalanced or
reversed.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected correctly and securely.
• Adjust the balance (page 15).
There is severe hum or noise.
• Check that the speakers and components are
connected securely.
• Check that the connecting cords are away from a
transformer or motor, and at least 3 meters
(10 feet) away from a TV set or fluorescent light.
• Move your TV away from the audio components.
• The plugs and jacks are dirty. Wipe them with a
cloth slightly moistened with alcohol.
Recording cannot be done.
• Check that the components are connected
correctly.
• Select the source component with input buttons.
The FM reception is poor.
• Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied) to
connect the receiver to an outdoor FM antenna as
shown below. If you connect the receiver to an
outdoor antenna, ground it against lightning. To
prevent a gas explosion, do not connect the ground
wire to a gas pipe.

Radio stations cannot be tuned in.
• Check that the antennas are connected securely.
Adjust the antennas and connect an external
antenna if necessary.
• The signal strength of the stations is too weak
(when tuning in with automatic tuning). Use direct
tuning.
• Make sure you set the tuning interval correctly
(when tuning in AM stations with direct tuning).
• No stations have been preset or the preset stations
have been cleared (when tuning by scanning
preset stations). Preset the stations (page 12).
The RDS information that you want does not
appear.*
• Contact the radio station and find out whether they
actually provide the service in question. If so, the
service may be temporarily out of order.
* Models of area code CEL, CEK only.
The remote does not function.
• The DVD button on the remote is not available for
receiver operation.
• Point the remote at the remote sensor
on the
receiver.
• Remove any obstacles in the path between the
remote and the receiver.
• Replace all the batteries in the remote with new
ones, if they are weak.
• Make sure you select the correct input on the
remote.
Error message
If there is a malfunction, the display shows a
message.
PROTECT
Irregular current is output from the speakers. Turn
off the receiver, check the speaker connection and
turn on the power again. If this problem persists,
turn off the receiver and consult your nearest Sony
dealer.
Additional Information
RDS does not work.*
• Make sure that you are tuned to an FM RDS
station.
• Select a stronger FM station.
Remote control
If you are unable to remedy the
problem using the
troubleshooting guide
Clearing the receiver’s memory may remedy the
problem (page 9). However, note that all
memorized settings will be reset to their factory
settings and you will have to readjust all settings
on the receiver.
If the problem persist
Consult your nearest Sony dealer.
