Hi Joey - I had exactly the same problem.

In my case, I followed the advice of others and took the thing apart. On the main amp board there is a large brown capacitor. Mine had come completely loose, so I soldered it back in place with a good amount of solder to make sure the contacts were ok. I also dabbed some solder on the headphone connectors on the same board (just follow the wire from the headphone socket to the board). Well, when I put it back together and tried it again everything worked perfectly, and it has so far remained free from the error. Hope that helps !

I want to connect my Sony Dav s400 to my new philips blu ray player for surround sound quality.How do I do this?PLEASE...... Peter.


Dont know how old this question is but came across it so thought i would offer up some assistance. the way that i would recommend is using a digital optical cable to join the bluray to the home theatre system (this offers the best quality sound) and then you simply change the audio input on your sony. you can get a decent cable for around £10 online. Hope this helps, Olllie

Protect


The protect message indicates that a problem was found in the output stage of the amplifier. Unless this gets repaired, nothing will work. As a verification that the speakers or the wires are not the problem, unplug all of the speakers and try again. If protect still is displayed, the problem is inside the unit.
