Default Sony ST-S333ESG tuner no audio output

Noticed that this is an amplifier forum. Hoping the expert here can help me on my Sony ST-S333ESG AM/FM tuner. Circuit diagram found, hoping somebody can help to narrow down the problem area.

(A) No audio output.
(B) Auto tuning unable to stop when a signal is present.

1. No audio output on L and R channel. The built-in audio CAL tone can send to the output L&R RCA sockets. Audio section should be fine.

2. Signal meter shows the signal strength when a station is present.

3. Auto tuning unable to stop when a station is present (singal meter showing 90% scale).

4. Manual tuned at the station, but no audio output. Tried on different combination of wide/narrow, hi-blend .. etc).
5. Stereo light unable to turn on.
Appreciate somebody can help.

5. The antenna cable is tested good with a Pioneer tuner.

6. Voltage is checked, no sign of power supply problem.

Thanks and regards,

If the signal meter responds to a station but there is no audio and no stopping of a scan then the first area to look at is the FM discriminator. This may be within a chip, or it may be discrete circuitry with a couple of diodes and a special IFT.

PS this ought to be in the Analogue Source section - click on the warning triangle and ask the mods to move it

The discriminator is on CXA1064. No idea which signal is used to stop the auto tuning and when will the PLL starts to lock the station.

Best regards,
