Hi,

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

Deneon UD M50 - Tray jam


It sounds like the cd tray has been forced shut and has been damaged when you got the CD's out. If it was me I would of unscrewed the casing and retrieved the CD's that way instead of trying to force the try open which I'm assuming you have done.

It could just be a simple matter of just slightly adjusting the internal CD mechanism so that it can open and close properly without jamming. The error message comes up because the tray cant eject properly. The worse case scenario is that the CD mechanisam would need to be replaced. Not a hard job for a service engineer, if you dont fancy taking the thing apart yourself then a service centre is your best bet.

Protect mode


I own a Sharp DVD Micro System XL=DV60 that began to have a "protect" error message when I crank up the volume. Not sure if this applies to your system, but it could be worth a try. Before you proceed, the solution requires you to open up your system (Do not proceed if the unit is still under warranty :)).  
IF you are not experienced in opening up electronic equipment, I suggest you find somebody who does. The error on my system was caused by the cooling fan being stuck or not able to spin. The system has a sensor or sense circuitry wherein, when it detects that the "amplifier" IC heats up, it spins up the fan to cool it down. IF the system detects that the fan is not spinning during the cooling phase, it will give out the "protect" message. Note that the fan only spins when you crank up the volume. Less or 0 volume will shut down the fan due to it's "energy star" feature. One possible reason why using headphones does not show the error, since headphones require less energy that the main speakers, thus the amplifier IC does not overheat. To solve the problem, I cleaned out the dust in the system via a 1 inch wide paint brush (haven't tried the compressed bottled air used to clean computers BUT it might do) and nudged the fan. Played the system w/o a cover and observed the fan operation and so far it has solved the issue. I plan to lubricate the fan shaft with very small amount(less than a drop) of machine oil using a syringe. If it does not work, I plan to see if I could purchase a replacement motor for the fan...
Again, I have not seen the internal layout of CD-BA2100 and not sure if there is a cooling fan. But then again, it's better than having the "protect" error popping up. :) hope this helps....

Hxd7 protect


Don't buy a stereo that prints up 'PROTECT MODE' and then does not tell you how to cure it. This is a good way of getting people to buy a new one only live and learn do not buy the same manufacturer again. I have a nice just out of warrenty JVC that when I switch it on sits there grinning at me with 'PROTECT MODE' showing. Yes I have entered cash protect mode and decided I am not going to buy another JVC.

MX-KA3 SAYS PROTECT


I need a little help on this one. Did it go into protect after the move or was it in protect mode before? If it went into protect after the move, did it get dropped or roughly handled? Sounds like something got knocked loose in the move. You should be able to open the unit up and check the connections. Reseat all connection whether they look loose or not. Sometimes it only takes a very small bump to get the connector acting up. After reseating all connectors, if it still does not work let us know.

Denon UD-M50 cd changer. Need help extracting drawer for home repair!


Hi KathyKate

If you are still having the same problem with your denon UD-M50 I might be able to help. I have fixed a number of them in the past and have the necessary maintenance manual and knowledge of a company that can supply spare parts. Disassembly looks very complex, especially when the problem is with the carousel but once you have an understanding of the mechanism it's not that difficult. Care should be taken when manually removing and reloading the disc trays as damage can result to the 'Teeth' alongside each. Spare trays are available. All my repairs involved the removal of the carousel mechanism in order to align the trays. I can copy the relevant sections of the manual dealing with the re-alignment which is critical but again if followed exactly you should have no trouble. If you respond with an Email address, I will be only too pleased to forward you the schematics etc.

Protect


Protect mode would indicate that the system is shutting down due to a fault in the output which drives the speakers. You can check the speaker wiring, are there an loose or frayed wires? Any small "whiskers" or wire touching anything? Check the wire all the way to the speaker for damage, some pets love to chew wires! Are you using the original speakers or added extra? The impedance of the speakers must be in the range shown on the back of the unit. Have you perhaps had the volume up very high? This could result in speaker damage that could also cause this error. Try disconnecting the speakers & see if the unit powers up, if it does then put the speakers back one at a time to discover the faulty one. If all this checks out OK then the output stage itself is probably faulty & that's a job for the repair shop. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
