My Sony STR-KS2300 home theatre receiver will not power on. Can you help solving the problem.

I unplugged the receiver for hours and plugged it back to another outlet, still not powering on. I tried to reset as mentioned in the operating manual, still nothing.

If the amber light doesn't light up when you plug the cord in the wall outlet, then you may have a broken cable within the cord. If the light lights up, press the left button for 5 seconds and the press it again to turn the system on.
If the power cable is broken, this could be at the plug end, change the plug and see. If not, you will have to service it in the case there is an internal fuse blown.

I have a Sony home theatre it shows an error "Push power protector" pl tell me which part may i change ? I mean which IC ? How can I solve for this problem I already change the ic STR F6168 but no way

Check your power supplies by measuring or disconnecting. You probably have a load of some type either on an output channel or you may have shorted caps loading one of your power supplies. You can't guess your way through it.

MP500 Doesn't power on ...plugged in back & wall (good outlet)

You did not specify what, if anything, happened before it stopped working but, from the sound of things, a voltage spike may have tripped an internal breaker. Try unplugging it from the wall for an hour or so - it is important that the machine receive NO power at all - to let the breaker reset, then plug it in and try again. As for opening it up, I don't know; mine is a Pixma MG3500.

The receiver will shut off and come back on and some times will not come back on for a bit?

Have you tried unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back into the outlet? This will cause the receiver to reboot. Give this a try and if it continues to power off/on, you may need to replace the receiver. You can call 1-800-333-3474 for further trouble shooting.

Sound isn't working when watching tv

Hello, Matt Gonzales with DISH Network here. To resolve this issue, try doing a hard reset on the receiver. To do a hard reset, you will unplug the receiver from the power outlet, leave it for 15 seconds, then plug it back in. After doing this, your receiver will go through a rebooting process which takes about 5 minutes. If that does not work, it can be a cabling issue, proper cabling diagrams can be found at If you're not able to get it working, please feel free to email me at

My VIP 622 do not comunicate with my LCD via HDMI when i power on i have a green blinking

Hello, this is Matt Gonzales with DISH Network. When just the green light on the front of the DISH receiver is blinking, the receiver is in recovery mode. Recovery mode can take up to 4 hours, but if it goes past that, try doing a hard reset on the receiver. To do a hard reset, you will unplug the receiver from the power outlet, leave it for 15 seconds, then plug it back in. After doing this, your receiver will go through a rebooting process which can take about 5 minutes. If you have the same problem with the green light blinking, the receiver will need to be replaced. If this is still an issue, please send me an email at

Will not record a program, can not access dvr recorded programs. When DVR button is pressed get the message " ERROR 024 Unable to access this feature at this time : data not available " .

Hello this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network customer service. With a 024 message, the best thing that we can do is hard reset the receiver. To do a hard reset, you simply unplug the receiver from the power outlet it is connected to, leave it unplugged for 20 seconds, then plug it back in. The receiver reboot process takes about 5 minutes. Once the show is back on, try accessing your DVR again, if it is still not working, the receiver will need to be replaced. If this is still a problem, please feel free to email me at with your account number so we can get this resolved.

Reciever constantly powers on and then off again


If the receiver is powering off/on, there may be an issue with the power supply. Have you unplugged the receiver from the electrical outlet? If not, unplug for 10 seconds and plug back in. This will reboot the receiver and have it reacquire the satellite signal. If the lights do not illuminate after plugging the receiver back into the electrical outlet, please call 1-800-333-3474. We need to replace the receiver.
