Even after reset it still flashes protect


Try checking your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds. If your speakers and speaker wires check out, you may have a bad internal output ic.

Kenwood KDC-MP732 CD Player in protect mode how do i get it off had a blown speaker fixed it and still in protect mode


Protect Mode (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated.

Solution: Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

Here is a copy of the Instruction Manual for the Kenwood KDC-X790 and KDC-MP732.

Kenwood kdc-mp208 stuck in ''protect'' mode....


Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

It is on protected mode when i hit the reset button


Hi.

The unit goes on protected mode when an internal fault is detected.

Try disconnecting the battery cable for five minutes . If there is no fault you will clear protected mode.

If the unit still goes on protect, then check the wiring at the back, a short in there can trigger protectedd mode. If that does not work, then there is an internal fault. In that case the unit must be disassembled and tested.

Regards.

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
