His appears to be a very common problem here on the board. It means the unit has shut off the outputs because of either a bad speaker or shorted wire, or some failed part in the amplifier. If the trouble continues after you disconnect the speakers, the unit will require service to diagnose and replace the failed part(s).

I've never worked on this model, but in many brands the amplifier integrated circuit is a common failure. They are often not properly mounted for efficient cooling and burn themselves out. Another typical failure is some power supply part that is under-rated and just goes bad, and this is showing up as the protect failure.

Without a diagram and no direct experience, I can't suggest any specific action you could take, other than checking with a local shop for a repair estimate. (You might try contacting JVC on their website or by phone to see if they have any service bulletins. If something becomes a chronic issue, the manufacturer sometimes extends warranty service to cover the repair. Never hurts to ask!)

My xl400 singer embroidery carriage has stopped working. Will not move at all when machine is turned on. Also keep getting msg error about hoop size but no hoop attached.

The switch for "sew" or "embroidery" must first be in the "embroidery" position.
Make sure the connections are very firmly pushed in.
If it still isn't functional it may require some small motors to be replaced. The motors are what makes the hoop move.

Brother fax p275

Remove the backup battery and unplug the fax machine and leave overnight. By morning I'am hoping it will wipe everything clean when plugged back in along with the battery. But it will mean you will have to set your date and time again.

I'm not able 2 take the pics as i'm getting d msg card protected

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card, enabling writes. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try a different card.

Dvd willnot record, keeps saying defect in disc

I had the same problem and just figured it out about 5 minutes ago. I have been trying 16x discs. I guess it can only read 8x max dvd+r discs. Give that a try. The hardest part was finding 8x discs. I found some at K-mart on closeout, 15 for 6.00 plus tax. Good luck to you.
