Question about Fender Passport P-51 Consumer Microphone
Thank you for your wisdom. I found a plastic plug in the back of the cabinet but when I remove it no srcew head, just a casing mark. There are two screws in the front nothing more. I thought if I removed the rubber trim around the front of the cabinet the speaker grill might pop out, but that did not work. Thanks again, Tom B.
I have experience with the original Passport 250 as leader of the design team. To get inside of the speaker cabinet, you will need to remove a couple of small screws that hold in the grille at the top and bottom of the cabinet face. Once these screws are removed, you will need to carefully pry out the grille from its pressure fit in the plastic noting how it is placed so you can reassemble the grill later. Once the grille is removed you will notice several holes located around the outer perimeter of the speaker panel. Inside these holes, you will find the screws that secure the front of the cabinet (part with speaker attached) with the back of the cabinet housing. Once you have all of the screws removed, you can separate the front panel from the housing and fix the wires or dislocated parts such as crossovers, etc.
Once repaired, use the reverse method to reassemble the cabinet. Don't tighten the cabinet screws excessively as they can strip the plastic.
I hope this repair works for you.

Sorry about the delayed response, I just noticed this posting.
The protect indicates a problem with the output section of the amplifier. Effectively the amp has been shutdown to prevent further damage. Although the unit should not have been working (at least not well) at 30V, unless they htried to run it at full volume, there should not have been damage. The outputs are blown and this unit requires repair. If I remember these units correctly, there are 8 output transistors, most of which may require changing. WIthout seeing the unit and taking some measurements, I can not say for sure, but expect $40-$70 in parts.
