For some reason everytime i turn on my cd player, it stays on for 5 seconds and shuts off, and in the display window it says "protect"... why? and how can i get rid of that so that my cd player will actually STAY on...
I do apologize for the problems you are having with your audio unit. The protect mode indicator will appear when the unit detects abnormal resistance in your speaker setup. I recommend removing any additional speaker wire that may be added to the unit to extend the factory speaker lengths. Also, make sure you have all the factory speakers attached, and all non-factory speakers removed. Finally, please unplug you unit from he wall for 1 hour after checking all of the above suggestions to completely reset your unit.
If you are still having issues after doing all of the steps mentioned above, the unit may need to be evaluated by a Sharp Authorized repair center.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

is this happening everytime you start the machine? What is being displayed on the screen? Do you hear the fans running when you press the power button? Do you hear the disc drive running? Do you hear the cd drive click once and the light on the cd drive door come on for a second or two? Is it posting anything on the screen during the boot process? Is it getting to the actual windows desktop which is where you see your icons? Computers shut down for a reason. Either some piece of hardware is not working such as a fan, or some hardware is faulty (such as the memory, cpu or motherboard), or some software issue or a virus has taken over.
The blue lines you mention should flash when trying to find the 'Table of Contents' of your CD, even if a CD isn't loaded. If when a CD is loaded and these lines flash for a while without any CD info e.g track no. / disc length then it's more likely that a problem has occurred with the laser. Various NAD CD players use the Sony KSS-213 Laser unit and for some reason particularly with NAD CD players, they tend to drift out of calibration over time so what i usually do when i come across this is very finely adjust the pot trim on the laser itself and testing a CD between adjustments.
Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.
The unit has stopped reading discs. I suggest taking the lid off and cleaning the laser lens with a cotton bud with a little Windex , then give it a gentle polish to be sure no residue smearing is left. If that does not fix it, check to see what actually happens when you load a disc. Does the transport fully engage and clamp the disc correct into the chucking assembly. Let me know how you got on:)
