Question about Sharp XLDV60H Shelf System

1 Answer


I have an Apple Macbook Pro laptop hooked up to the stereo. Whenever I attempt to "crank it up!" for a party or social gathering the stereo shuts itself off and the LCD screen reads "PROTECT." When entertaining the multitudes of World Famous Socialites that frequent my cramped studio apartment for some reason this feature becomes quite a hassle... almost along the lines of sonic premature evacuation... Oh, Bad joke? Ouch. Sorry. I was wondering if there was a way to override this respectable yet unsatisfactory self-protection/preservation "PROTECT" mode? (I'm to the point where I think it knows it's pissing me off. At first, I was moderately impressed that it was trying to save itself by shutting off before it blew out its speakers and committed suicide. Now, I am really sick and tired of its suicide resistant tendencies. I ready to step in and play the role of Jack Kavorkian here.) The stereo seems to think (yes, it has a mind of its own) it needs to switch off whenever I turn the volume up past a certain level? Note: I have a standard audio card on my computer. Also, i previously had it hooked up to a TV and would try and play a DVD out of the stereo system itself (using the TV as a monitor and the Sharp XLDV60H as the DVD player) and had the same "PROTECT" problema. Any ideas? Help me annoy my neighbors! Please help? Success Needed!

My stereo says protect

The audio output stage is shorted, the microprocessor ic is locked up, you have at least two problems, I suggest you get it checked out before any money is spent.

It keeps saying protect when i turn up the volume

The stereo is not letting you turn the volume up enough to damage the speakers. That's all. It's a nice feature.

My stereo won't work. Whenever I try to turn it on, it always turns off saying "protect." How can I fix this?

The protect has come on because it senses an output load problem, Turn the unit off, unhook the speakers and wires from the stereo, now turn the unit on and turn the volume down as far as it will go, this should reset the processor ic, if the word protect stays off you have a short in the wiring or bad speaker. If the protect comes back on with everything unhooked the problem is in the audio output ic pack in the stereo and will require a technician to remedy.

Stereo goes into protect mode

Protect is a safety feature so that you do not blow your speakers. However with it hooked up with the computer you may have surpassed the max output. If it still does this with out going through the computer, it has been damaged.

Have you unplugged it from wall since ?
and, do you know if maybe the speakers are blown?
Bad speakers will make it stay in "protect"
Try other speakers after the unplug-plug back in routine.
Try the Denon website for a manual

How to turn protect off

You cannot . This a feature that detects a short and shuts the stereo off before it can do further damage. If you can disconnect your speakers try that then turn on your stereo. If it displays protect mode your problem is internal. If it stays on try hooking up one speaker at a time to see if one of your speaker is bad. Make sure you turn off your stereo before attempting to reconnect your speakers . Good luck

Wow! What will they think of next? This is the first time I've heard of a stereo with a protect on it. Well look through the manual and see if it saids something about the protect feature. If not, contact customer service and see if there's a code you could input into the stereo to unlock it.
