This is not a fuse problem. The rotect mesage indicates that the unit detected a problem and shutdonw the unit to prevent further damage. Disconnect the speaker wires and try turning on the system. If protect still occurs, there is an internal problem *usually shuorted output transistors) that will require service. If you can solder and wish to attempt the repair yourself, update this and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

My stereo just quit on me there was bad weather but it was on one of those power surge cords it is a pioneer stereo fm-am digital synthesizer tuner


If it was plugged into a surge protector, check the surge protector warranty. There are A LOT of surge protectors that will cover damage to items plugged into them through their warranty system. I've had full home computers and TV's replaced by surge protector companies to avoid having a hit to homeowners insurance.

I have a Kenwood audio video stereo receiver model number KRV 7080 where are the fuses located I had a power surge since then it doesn't come on


take it in for a diagnostic check as power surges bypass fuses and do damage to critical electronic items like the CPU unit
with modern communication equipment it is essential that quality surge protectors are in the power cord wire

My AV receiver turns off a couple of seconds after I turn it on. I did what the manual said, unplugged the power source and removed all of the speakers but it continues to do the same thing. Anything else...


Hi,
you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    One possibility is that the power-on speaker protection delay is stuck on. The most common cause of this is a shorted transistor in one of the power amplifier channels. In that case, you will need to replace the speaker driver transistors in that channel. I don't have service information on your particular model; it may use power amplifier modules rather than individual transistors.

    The tricky part is identifying the amplifier power and speaker output terminals to test for this problem. To find a shorted output transistor, you need to measure the resistance between the output of each channel and the plus, then the minus power supply connections. There is a relay between the amplifier output and each speaker terminal on the back; this relay is turned off by the speaker protection circuit, so you can't measure from the speaker terminals. If you have a fried transistor, one of the tests will show a resistance of a fraction of an ohm. A good transistor will have a very high resistance or read open. This will be the case whether you have modular amplifiers or discrete transistors.

    If you see a blown fuse, that is a strong indication that you do have a fried transistor. Sometimes the speaker protector circuit shuts down fast enough to save the fuse, but not always.

    A "protector" warning appears when turning on.


    there could be a short in one of the connections or your power supply could be fried also ive seen some models with internal fuses that have blown

    Error code - protector


    Try disconnecting all the speakers from the back and turn the unit back on. If the "protector" display goes away, turn the unit back off and reconnect one speaker. Turn it back on and check for "protector". Repeat.

    If you find that one of the speakers causes "protector" to appear, you either have a bad speaker cable or bad speaker. Try swapping each of those out to see what happens.

    Stuck protector mode


    find out why the fuse blew in the first place.the protector is just PROTECTING the main circuits of the receiver.the receiver turns on just to confirm the power circuit is OK.
    have it checked by an electronic engineer.
