Hello,
Protection mode on a Samsung player most likely means that the unit is overheating due to a non or low functioning fan. Before taking it somewhere to be serviced turn the unit on and see if the fan in the back is functioning (it should be on whenever the unit is on). If it is not you can try gently blowing it out with a can of compressed air.
I am sure that you can have it serviced but it might be cheaper to purchase a new player.
Good luck and take Care,
-WN

If it is, the protection message usually meant either a speaker had blown, or more commonly a wire to a speaker had come disconnected or broken/shorted.

Try unplugging the speakers one at a time, and if you have a set of speakers of the same rating to try, try plugging them in as you remove the originals (obviously doesn't need to be done in the setup positions in the room, just have them beside the player to check it works.)

This might then identify which speaker or cable is the problem one for you to replace or repair.

If this is the speaker overload/short mesaage as I think it is and the above doesn't cure it, it would appear the amplifier board has a short somewhere and that's an electronics engineer job time
Hope it helps!

Check the components near the fan in the back to see if any caps are fried (looks like it exploded)causing the protection circuit to come on if this is fine then check the fan to see if it if freely moving.

Samsung HT-X40 also shuts off after displaying Protection


You probably have the same problem that myself and several others have had, and let me guess, its outside of the warranty? How good are you with a soldering iron? If you are not afraid to do some soldering you can fix it, check out these instructions that i found:

you will need 474k or .47uf 100v capacitors and a soldering iron, but you can fix it, worked for me.

I got ahtx-40 and after running for a while it displays protection and the power goes off. helppppppp!!!!!


I have the same HT-X40 home theater as you do, and my problem seems similar to yours. It'srelated to overheating. First check the fan and air flow from it. Ifit's OK, the problem can be inside the unit. In my case one of theoutput filter capacitors got broken - it had a crack on its body.Replacement of the capacitor fixed the shutdown on protection.
Anotherquestion is what damaged the cap. Preliminary I consider placement ofthe capacitors as a possible problem - they are too close to the outputinductors which can get relatively hot even at normal workingcondition. For details you can check:http://craftsman-hambs.blogspot.com/2009/09/samsung-home-theater-ht-x40-shut-down.html
