Sharp Micro Component System XL-ES50 won't turn on
My Sharp Micro Component System XL-ES50 won't turn on. It's been a great system and has worked perfectly. After not using it for a couple of months, I went to trun it on. When I push the Power On button I hear a very faint buz for a second or two--that's all that happens. Could it be stuck on standby, or what? How do I get it fixed--is it likely something simple I can do myself? Or, where do I take it to get it fixed (I live in Minneapolis, MN)? Or, is it dead and not worth fixing? It has 5 CDs in it--how do I get them out if it's not worth fixing?

Placement of the speakers relative to the room surfaces and the listening position can affect their perceived bass response. Experiment. Corners and close wall reinforce the bass, moving the speakers out from them would lessen it.
If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage. Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).
The protect mesage indicates a problem with the final stage of the output amplifier. The unit shuts down to prevent further damage. Please update this with the make and model and I should be able to point you to the problem part(s).
