Tap the SRC button until the unit is in standby. Press and hold BBoost/Menu button. release. Move control knob on the right up or down until you find 'off AUH'. Move control knob to the left or right to change to on and tap the BBoost/Menu button to exit
Hello. Have the same problem. Have just downloaded the Manual in German. It says In Standby Mode use the small joystick up to FM or AM till it says DEMO OFF and then press the small joystick for 2 Seconds. Hope this helps.
Standby mode does not completely power down the unit it jsut does not draw as much power as when the unit is on. Also, depending on the unit, it might start back up faster in standby then from power off. You can select to have certain things displayed while in standby mode. Here is what can be selected for this unit: Standby: displays CD loaded indicator, "STBY" indicator, and clock (when selected)
Hope this was helpful.
This is often caused by a problem with the speakers or speaker wiring. A speaker wire that's pinched behind the head unit will cause this problem if it's shorted to dash metal or the deck chassis.
The first thing to do is remove the head unit and inspect all the speaker wiring for bare spots or pinched spots. If everything looks okay, disconnect all four speakers from the deck and switch it on. If it still shows "protect" then you have a defective head unit. If not, then turn it off, re-connect one of the speakers, and turn it on again. Continue until you find the speaker output that puts the deck into protect mode.
