Question about Audio Players & Recorders
When the stereo gets plugged in it says "PROTECT" and wont do anything so i cant use it.
Look on the back of the unit to see if you can find a reset button. If not then you may have blown an internal fuse.

Happens to us, too. We do what the manual specifies: disconnect from the electrical outlet and connect it again. Works even though it is a consistent and annoying problem this equipment has.

The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the output amplifier section. Verify that the speaker wires are not shorted together. If they are fine, there is an internal problem that is usually the output transistors. Your specific model I believe uses an amplifier pac (STK411-230). It should be replaced. It is available from tritronicsinc.com using part number VHISTK4113E-1 at a cost of $83.04.

your speaker are hooked up wrong.or there may be dust in or on the terminals.i used a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and wiped them down.hook up the speaker cords properly and try this again.if this does not work then unplug the stereo and let it sit overnight and try again.

Power protect tends to mean the main power amp chip has "blown" and needs to be replaced. It only costs about 20 dollars (10GBP). If you are handy with a soldering iron it is easy to do (after you get the thing to bits !) It is the big black thing on the big heatsink inside. The Sony part number is STK442 - 130. Seems a waste to throw the whole thing away for the sake of 10 pounds !. Hope this helps. Nik Howell (firstname.lastname@example.org)
