Secure mode is the anti theft function. Since you do not know what that is It suggests that you do not know the password. If that is the case then it seems like the unit is or has been stolen at one time. If you do not know the password then you have to bring the unit to a authorized Pioneer service center to have it reset. If the backup up sense wire is cut, or the system is disconnected from the vehicle, or if the reset button is pushed then the unit will ask for a password the next time it fires up.

DENON UD-M30 CD Player is displaying the word PROTECT and will not function. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Many thanks.

Usually when a receiver goes into protect mode, there are several reasons, One is there is a bad speaker connected to the unit, this will cause the unit to to into protect mode, try disconnecting all speaker from the unit and turning it on if it does not go into protect then one of the speakers are bad. Another reason is the power output Amplifier IC is shorted inside the unit. Another reasons could be that speaker wires are touching each other and causing a short. Disconnect all unit connecting to the unit and try turning on, if it stays on and no protect then connect them including the speakers one at time until you determine which is causing the error. If it goes into protect with nothing but the unit on then the Output IC is bad and the unit needs servicing.

Split system outside unit won't come on for cooling, only heating

Check your filters, dog hair and lack of maintenance will definitely burden the cooling mode of the Mr Slim units.

Safe mode

You can also force the system into safe mode. You click on startup and type in msconfig. Click the general tab and select diags and the system will reboot to safe mode. Change it back to normal to get your system out of safe mode.

Volvo 850 oil pressure sending unit.

it's generally located near or on the housing for the oil filter. you shouldn't need to drain the oil... just clean off any dirt around the sensor before you replace it... and yes i know this is very obvious to most people but i have to mention it whether i want to or not... this is done with the motor off.

DNX7100 Security Code Password

While code request mode,point the remote control to the unit and enter this code 55222277or 552222777(depending the remote contro you are using)(try to press the numbers that faster you can) that is way you type KCAR from the remote control.
you will not see any change on the screen while you entering the number,only when you enter the last number the unit will go to standby mode.
if you make a mistake,reset the unit and start all over again.

let me know if works
thank you
