    My brother's girlfriend pushed some buttons on my brothers receiver and now it seems to be locked in DD mode.

    When you change the input on the rec to DVD/LD...the display flases UNLOCK or UNLOCKED. I could find no mention of this in the manual, and no button for unlocking the receiver on the remote or the front of the receiver itself. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Please help with this if anyone can.

    Have you tried unplugging it?

    Nope!! I didn't even think of it at the time. I'll call him and have him give that a try. Maybe that will work.

    Otherwise, anybody think of anything else?

    thanks,

    Locked means it has locked onto a new type of signal.

    Question 1 When you put in a DVD and the menu of the DVD plays (usually in prologic) do you hear the sound ok?

    Question 2 - When you select "play movie", when the movie just starts to play, the receiver should recognize the new type of signal (DD5.1 or dts5.1 for most disks). At that time the receiver player should lock onto the new signal (there may be a second or two with no sound before the receiver locks onto the new signal). Does this happen??? After locking onto the new signal, do you hear sound in 5.1??

    I actually had this same problem myself! I just fixed it tonight myself.
    Go click the "Audio Input" button until it goes back to "AUTO". Do this while the receiver is set on DVD/LD.
    Any other problems, just e-mail me and i'll help ya out!

    I'm having this same problem on my STR DE985.
    It shows UNLOCK on the screen, and I'm only getting sound in 2 CH ANALOG mode on my Satellite. DVD, CD nothing else works.
    What's really weird is you can't even run a test tone. Nothing happens. Not even the FM reception puts out sound. I cleared the reciever's memory, but did not unplug it. Maybe I'll try that. [​IMG]
