Question about Fender Passport P10w Personal PA System W/wireless Mic
Suddenly I can't get the batteries to charge even after several hours. I know one battery is good as it has been working lately. The unit flashes green like it is charging but never goes solid and when I do stop and turn the unit on it comes on with a red light that fades in a few seconds and then nothing. There is a black wire in the battery compartment that is lose and I wonder if that is part of the problem or is it just an extra wire? Thanks

go back in and find where the electrolitic capacitors connect to the board. They look kind of like a battery. One or both of them have broken loose from the main board, preventing any significant current from going to the output transformer, and causing overload. This is a common problem, and it does not take much rough handling to cause it.
where the break is is at the solder connection. Under a magnifying glass, the break will look like a little circle. Float fresh solder on that or any other large solder joints which may be cracked or broken.
Use standard precautions when working around high voltage.

90 % of these types of problems are caused by faulty leads .... make sure that you have correct speaker cables and not just a regular guitar cable

The protect circuit is activated by a current sensing transformer in the *input* of the power supply. If any of the subassemblies of the unit (or all of them in combination) draw excess current then the protect light will illuminate and the power supply shut down to prevent any damage to the system.
The circuitry in the power supply is fairly robust as well as fuse protected so it is unlikely that the power supply itself has failed. More than likely one of your output power transistors has been shorted and it is easy to check this yourself if you are interested in doing so.
Furthermore if you follow a few *simple* precautions you can do this safely and confidently.
Post again on this thread if you are interested and I will spew the details.

Likely there is either a failure in one of the power amps or the power supply. The protect means excess current is being sensed.
You need to take in for repair... these are really hard to work on due to the packaging.
