    How could this be a capacitor if it made the same sound ie numerous times. Also the bang sound was coming out of the speakers.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the "PROTECT" message/display indicates that:

  • the unit has kicked in auto protect mode;
  • possibly the speakers need to be checked for continuity;
  • the audio amplifier section of the TEAC AG-V8525 has to be checked;
  • incidentally, the loud bang and pop could be a capacitor charging/discharging.
Of course you could always try using it in another outlet and making sure no other devices are plugged in to the same outlet. Should this be not corrective, then the unit would require repair. This of course would require opening the unit, perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional. If the cost of repairs and downtime would be factored in, then you may have to re-evaluate your options and consider a replacement.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, one or both of your output IC`s are shorted, the unit is telling
you that it is in "protect mode" which means you need a tech,
good luck

Try reinstalling the software in the board. Give it to the service center for this. or you can do it yourself if you have the related cable.

The loud bang was a component that had blown. Sometimes a device may work for a while with a blown capacitor , for example, before going into protection.

The unit must be taken apart and tested to find out the defective component.

Why does my Teac ag h500 keep saying protect?


Hi. Unfortunately the protection circuit is saving your speakers from a fault, most likely one side of the amplifier in the unit is defective.

This needs an engineer.

Will not switch on


Probably an electrolytic capacitor blew... should be obvious if you remove the case. The tops blow off or split... may leave residue.

My teac ag-790a 'protect' error message on display. When I brought it to the audio shop for repair it worked fine; at home again the same problem? What is the problem? Tx.


Hello
Check the putput wirings to speakers. If any of them has short circuit, the set will go to protection mode. You can understand it well, as it did worked fine at the repair shope. The set has no fault at all, but the wirings, connects to it have.
Just power ON the set at your home, without connection any output or input to it. See, it will not show any protection mode display. Switch it OFF. Connect the output to speakers, one at a time, and switch ON the set. Just do it for all other speakers. This way, you can find out, which speaker line causes the set to go to protection mode. Fine out the reason.
Never connect any input to the system, until works fine with out showing any protection display.
I helped you somewhat fine, I assumes.
Ok.

Protect displaying


Protect on any reciever usually means that it has reached its maximum capacity of volume (known as clipping) and at the reciever is now automatically reducing the volume to avoid damage. This some times is triggered if the reciever was used hard and is now damaged so you would need to bring it to a repair shop. Sometimes its caused by a bad wire to the speakers, a short to say. Check all your wiring, make sure its not overheating and getting plenty of air. Some where its recieving a signal telling it to go into protect mode.

Since the problem appeared to correct itself on occassion, I would first look for poor solder connections either at the output transistors or at the voltage regulators. Let me know if you need more detail.
