My boombox is displaying the word "Protect" in the display. ???
In the middle of a song, the music stopped playing and the word "Protect" is now showing in the display screen. I have tried to unplug the boombox and plugging it in again, but that does not seem to help. None of the function keys are working, the boombox appears to be locked up. What can I do to get it out of this "Protect" mode its in?

The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier section. This unit will require repair as a reset will not clear this. There is an audio amp IC inside that needs to be replaced. Figure on about $15 or so for the part.

If "PROTECT" appears on the display: Immediately unplug the power cord, and check if anything blocking the ventilation holes on the back of the system after "PROTECT" disappears. After you have checked the ventilation holes and found to be all right, reconnect the power cord, and turn on the system. If the issue persists, contact your nearest Sony dealer.
Hello Press RADIO BAND.AUTO PRESET until the band you want appears in the display (direct power on). Each time you press this button, the indication changes as "FM" --> "AM". Hold down TUNE + or --, until the frequency digit begins to change in the display. The player automatically scans the radio frequencies and stops when it finds a clear station. If you can't tuned in a station, press the button repeatedly to change the frequency step by step. If FM broadcast is noisy, press "MODE" until "Mono" appears on the display and the radio will play in monatural without any noise. Only strong FM signals can be decoded to stereo. OK.
This a popular laser problem, if in warrantee, take it in for service. If not warrantee, get an estimate for replacing the laser assembly. You don't want to find it costing more than it does to replace it.
I'm not familiar with that particular model, but unless there is an input jack on the back, the note on the unit means that if you burn a cd on a computer,to play using this unit, you don't have to convert the songs to standard music format as you would with an older boombox, but you can leave them in MP3 format and fit many many songs on the CD, and the boombox will still play them.
So....You must burn the songs from your ipod to a cd, in MP3 format, and the box will play them.
