Re: need help now
Check all your wires and connections make sure that none have crossed or are short circuiting. What you are seeing is the circuit overload protection and generally is from 2 causes. 1 being what i stated that your wires are crossed or touching on one set of speakers creating a short. 2 is the power supply in either its not grounded or that its blown and overload protection is overriding. Check all the connections and let me know so i can further assist you.

the remote has nothing to do with this.
Its in protection mode ..
check your speakers cables first
if is all OK
then the receiver needs to be serviced the power supply section has a damaged parts or re-soldering the points again , but mostly damaged parts due to age of the device or over heated.
hope this helps
remove the speaker wires all together,, and turn the unit on at a high range of volume,, and wait 10 minutes, if it shuts down then, you have a circuit problem that will need to be checked by a shop, if it stays on, turn the unit off, and add one speaker at a time, following the same procedure, that will let you know which output transistor is bad,, when the unit gets feedback , its going to shut down,
If you bought the extended warranty, you need to go where you purchased it and they can look it up on their computer system. If it's out of warranty, the repair cost is debatable. Between 125-175 average. 50% of the cost.
If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage. Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage or short.
More than likely, it's not a problem with the receiver. The fastest way to tell is to disconnect all speakers at the back of the receiver and turn it on. If it does not shut down, your receiver is ok and is just protecting itself from damage. If it stays on, check all your wiring, what it sounds like is that you have one or two braids of wire touching the other terminal. Not enough to cause a "short" at turn on, however, when you turn up the volume the resistance increases and creates a short, thus "overload" shows on the receiver. Hope this helps. If you need more help troubleshooting, post a comment and I can help more.
Suzie, your reciver is going into a protection mode. There is a problem with one of your speakers, the wiring, or +with the reciver itself. If you know how to use a multimeter, then you can test the resistance of the speaker, as if one speaker was partally shorted this problem would occor. If you have another set of speakers, try them. If not then you will need to have the reciver bench checked for a fault.
The units in the protect mode because the Microprocessor detects a large current being drawn by the amp. section of the reciver. This is a solid state unit and there are no user replaceable parts inside this unit. Unless you know how to trouble shoot sloid state devices then you should seek a pro to assist you with this repair. GOOD LUCK
