Question about Audio Players & Recorders
If your amplifier goes into the protection, there's really something wrong. There are different kind of protections but usually that circuit does see a DC voltage on your speakeroutput.
So it's a protection for your speakers.

Tips for a great answer:
It is possible that the amplifier had encountered a fault with a higher current drain which had triggered it to a protection fault condition. The fault can be with your output drivers. Please check for short on the outputs fitted for both the channels. Use a meter after disconnecting to check for short in the drivers. Disconnect the positive and negative voltages to the output and see if the protect changes. Even a fault in the preamp stages that drives in high current into the output can shut the Amplifier. Sometimes this can be a noise which can be a HUM or HISS before the protect works. Faulty capacitors in these circuits also can cause similar issues and needs close observation.You need to confirm and replace the specific stages or outputs. If not there can be issues in the mother board. Maybe the protect circuit by itself is shutting off due to a faulty bias or there is a leak in any voltage/current sensing circuit. Also disconnect the speakers and test, if the amplifier comes out of the protect mode then check for short on the speakers.

It could be a short in your speaker wire or the crossover in your speakers.
1) Turn off your unit and disconnect your speaker wires at the amp, if the protect is no longer displayed when the unit is turned back on, check the connections on the speakers. If you do not visually see a short on the speaker wire connection, turn off the unit and disconnect the wires at the speaker and isolate them so they do not touch then connect the speaker wires at the amp. Turn on the amp and see if the protect is on. If it is on, the wire has a short somewhere in the line. If the protect is off then suspect the speaker has a short in the voice coil or crossover.
2) If the protect is still on after you disconnect the speaker wires at the amp, it could be the power IC in the amp is shorted and needs to be replaced.
