The speaker wires were al little frayed, so I cut and stripped new 3/8" leads and when re-inserted the receiver worked fine. The problem was a short from the frayed wires touching either the back of the receiver or some other metal near the terminal.

My HTR 5460 won't stay on


try pressing power while holding the 'fm/am' and 'input mode' buttons. This will tell you what part of the circuit is making it shut down. It should show something like I PROTECT, PS PROTECT, etc.

FM Tuner not receiving - Yamaha R7 receiver


Take the cover off and look at the cable that connects the tuner to the main board. Make sure it is connected straight and tight. Make sure all screws in the back are tight, just in case it is a grounding issue. Iff all checks out and you still have issues, replace your tuner.

Radio is displaying message protect and will not come on


Protect means it is shutting down the internal amplifier to prevent damage.
Typically it is due to a grounded condition - where there is a speaker coil blown, or bare wire touching metal.

You will have to inspect each speaker further and find the root cause.

I am getting a message amp guard from player any idea on how or if this can be fixed?


, the message you are getting is "amp guard". This is the mesage it will display when a short in a speaker wire or speaker with low impedence is hooked to the internal amp and sends it into protect mode, shutting down the amplifier section while the rest of the unit continues to work.

check all of your speakers

Check your Factory speaker locations for blown speakers or bare wires to metal.

My Harman Kardon receiver ( AVR 225) displays "protect" and shuts off when I try to play anything (tape, CD, FM/AM). I unplugged receiver and reset it several times. The sam "protect" comes again.


I used the live chat and the problem was resolved.
Usually the problem are strands of speaker wires which cause shorting and protection shuts off the receiver in order to prevent damage. There was one speaker that I repositioned recently which was causing shorting. I twisted the wires and tightened them in place and my receiver has been working w/o a glitch. I was lucky that I did not have to check all the wire strands on the receiver and all the speakers.
Problem solved and I learned valuable lesson.
