    Sony STR-V444ES speakers audio isnt kicking in.
    Good audio to the Headphones is fine.
    Scoped audio up to relays is fine.
    but still 27 Volts across relay coil. No signal to drop one side low and thus kick in the relay.
    WHY ??? ayone run into this before?

    Yes i have looked for DC, and there isnt any.
    Also there are 4 different relays, Front-Rear L&R None of them are kicking in.

    The fact that none of the relays is dropping in, is neither here nor there -
    except to indicate that the problem is likely *not* related to any
    particular relay driver. To avoid unncessary duplication, the fault
    monitoring and switch on delay circuitry, will be a single entity,
    monitoring all channels simultaneously, and acting on all relay drivers
    simultaneously. Thus, any fault ( DC offset, over current, over temp etc )
    detected on *any* channel, will cause *all* relay drivers to be inhibited.
    So, I would suggest that your problem lies either with the fault monitoring
    circuitry itself, or the fact that it is genuinely detecting a problem on
    one or more channels.

  3. I think I've seen a couple bad 1 ohm resistors in the power supply cause
    this. They're at the rear corner of the machine.

    Got a service manual? Looks like either you've got a fault with one or
    more audio amps and the set is protecting itself from sending DC to the
    speakers or the detection/drive circuit is at fault.
