Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hello, please can you tell me if it is possible to connect a record deck to the Sony Theater System DAV-DZ50? I am looking to purchase a record deck and hoping I could use the surround sound system to listen to the music. Many Thanks. John My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if this is easer to reply?
Shouldn't be a problem as long as you get a record player with a built-in preamp. Old record players did not have a preamp, and will not output a signal at a high enough level to be used through the sony system.

Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.
Causes that can start protect mode are:
Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.
Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

SOURCE: sony compact AV SYSTEM DAV-S400
Hi Joey - I had exactly the same problem.
In my case, I followed the advice of others and took the thing apart. On the main amp board there is a large brown capacitor. Mine had come completely loose, so I soldered it back in place with a good amount of solder to make sure the contacts were ok. I also dabbed some solder on the headphone connectors on the same board (just follow the wire from the headphone socket to the board). Well, when I put it back together and tried it again everything worked perfectly, and it has so far remained free from the error. Hope that helps !

For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
We hope this information is helpful to you.

It's probably a user setting problem.
You don't say if you're listening to native multichannel soundtracks as intended (AFD Direct) or if you're manipulating them with one of the simulated soundfields. Simulations only go so far toward reality and they always insert artifacts.
Take a look at the Troubleshooting section in the manual. Voice tracks are mostly center-channel related.

Testimonial: "Have set it back to AFD Direct though one of the DVD's still sounds the same. Maybe it's the DVD. Thank you for your help."
