    The fan is running by power on and no burned components are located

    inside.I hope that someone has the electronic diagram off the sony HT-SL5, it can be help by fixing my problem.

If your problem is "switch on then after 10secounds shuts down and protect appears on the display .and cannot do anything with it but turn it off"

Then the unit is on protect mode, that is a special diagnostic mode that starts when the unit detects an internal fault.

To start unplug the unit from power for ten minutes, and see if this reset the protect mode, I guess you have done this already.

The first thing to do is to start the unit with nothing connected, if the unit does not go to protection, then the problem was one of the cables or a connected device.

If that does not fix it , there is a master reset , by pluggin the unit into main while at the same time you hold the power button.

If still no luck then the unit is defective and must be taken apart and tested with a multimeter.

You start checking for burnt areas on circuits, cold solder joints and leaking capacitors at sight, then there is need to grab the multimeter and do the real testing job.
When you find the problem you do the soldering.

Naturally this requires a certain experience in fixing electronics, to complete the job usually a precision soldering is needed.

The protect mode indicates that a problem was detected in the final stage of the output amplifier. The unit is shutdown to prevent further damage to either the amp or the speakers. I don't kow the specifics fo your model, but if it has discrete transistors for outputs, the parts cost will be in the $15-$25 range. If it have an AMP pac, expect parts to run in the $60-$75 range.

When i turn on my samsung HT-Z110, the word "Protect" appears...


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

It is getting too warm and shutting down to protect itself. This could be caused by insufficient ventilation or by shorted speaker wires.

"Protect" error - HTZ110


Home Theater System Is Displaying "Protection" spacer.gif As soon as the unit is turned on, the word "PROTECTION" will flash on the front panel of the unit and SHUT OFF. This error message usually indicates that the fan in the back of the unit is not on.

The PROTECTION feature automatically shuts down the unit to avoid further damage. The unit will need service if this error message is displayed.

Hi,

Take every single cable out of the unit, now power on the unit.

If the power protection still shows then there is an internal fault, usually a short or a component defect.

If it powers on ok, switch off and insert 1 speaker at a time and power on the unit until the protection mode comes on again, the last speaker you have put in has overloaded it for some reason, also as you are trying each speaker use the volume and bass controls to see if there is an internal overload.

Thats as much as I can offer you until you narrow the fault down to the unit or one of the speakers.

Cheers
