    Thank You! I was ready to throw out my Kenwood KDC-MP205 because of this "protect" error. In fact, I had this stereo in my pontoon and replaced it with an expensive marine stereo. The Kenwood has been sitting in the basement the last few months, and I thought it would be great to put it in my '98 Neon. Now, because solution #1 worked, I will be able to use my Kenwood again. Thanks again!

The protection function is activated when the speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. (The reset button is that little pinhole button below and to the right of the volume control). If you do this and the "PROTECT" code doesn't disappear, you'll have to consult a service center. Further, if you had this professionally installed, they should be obligated to fix the issue for you (hopefully).

If speaker wires are not shorted you may have a DC power problem. If you hooked up power wrong you will get a "PROTECT" on the display that will not go away.

Try HOLDING the <3> and <6> key down while pressing the reset and continue to hold after releasing the reset button.

You should get a display that says "DC ERR" or "DC OK". If "DC ERR" appears press and hold <1>.

Now Press <2> and you should get a display that says "DC #". # being anything from 0 to 4. if not 0 press and hold <2>.

Turn power off and back on. Hope this helps.

How to remove protect from my cd receiver display, model HCD-EC99i?


When the protect indicator comes on, usually a power transistor has blown. The unit needs to be taken to a repair shop.

The display is showing "PROTECT" and nothing (no sound) seems to work. What might be the problem?


It's possible that some of your speaker wring has either become loose, damaged, or is shorting. Perhaps even a faulty speaker. Check everything before you turn it on again.

My cd player is just showing PROTECT and not working??any ideas please


I would need more information such as the manufacturer and model number, I assume it's a DAF 44 but who makes that? In GENERAL
If PROTECT or PROTECTOR is flashing in the display of an audio device such as an A/V receiver, or home theater system (hts), there may be an external speaker issue or connection issue that is triggering the protection circuit

My Kenwood KDC-U453 cd receiver displays "PROTECT" on connection and nothing works - any solutions appreciated!!!!


Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

Protect comes on why


Hello
Protection display will come over this type of set, when it is overloaded or system confused condition. Just unplug the device from AC mains socket and replug it after 4 to 5 minutes, and see whether it shows any protect display. If it shows it again, just disconnect the output loads, ie, connected speakers, and check. Again it displays 'protect', the internal circuit, especially the output amplifier circuits has the trouble, and the system need service. if it does not show protect display, after disconnecting the speakers from it, check the speakers or its connecting wires for damage. OK.

Display shows 'PROTECT' and is blocked


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage, or a bare wire touching the body of the car

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,
