SONY STR-DB925 Reciver AV Amp start-up problem


Active Member
:hiya: :hiya: Hi Guys, anyone give me some idea of irritating though not deadly start-up problem on my trusty but long-in-the-tooth Sony STR-DB925.
This has only recently started but when switched on from cold there is an irritating period of around ten seconds when there is nothing but noisy static from the audio. This immediately fixes itself and then runs no-problem all-day. I know it is not exactly earth-shatteringly serious but nevertheless annoying.
Otherwise this is a brilliant piece of kit of which Sony should be proud.
I'm sure you technological wizards out there will know the reason if not the cure!:lease: :lease:

Have you tried resetting it. I have a sony amp and in the manual there is a combination of keys that resets the internal computer. That might fix the problem.
