Re: when turned on it say's protect
Take out all of your speaker wires on amplifier and on speakers and rewire them all. it is a crossed wire. a stray wire from the negative side is contacting the positive terminal either on the amplifier side or speaker side so just make sure to redo them all and make nice good tight twists when connecting.

if you're blowing fuses, there is a reason. the most prevalent reason for this is shorted speakers, while the final amp is supposed to be protected by fused speakers, many times they don't work fast enough to protect the amp. If this unit is brand new like you say, put the old fuse (blown one) back in and close the unit up, hopefully you haven't destroyed the tab that shows the case had been opened, this unit should be under warranty, take it back or send it back (with authorization) to where you bought it, don't tell them you opened up the case or you will void warranty. good luck
Speaker wires are touching in back or the ends are touching inside try cleaning any loose copper threads off the ports and blow them out, also check to see that all the positive and negative wires are properly run and not crossed (+ to + and - to -) if that dosent work you may have blown out the outputs on the receiver, there are a series of odd voltage and amperage glass tube fuses on the inside if this happens forget it the fix costs more than a new one. if you do find the fuses as soon as you replace them they will blow out again in seconds. Notorious for this problem. been there done that.
find out why the fuse blew in the first place.the protector is just PROTECTING the main circuits of the receiver.the receiver turns on just to confirm the power circuit is OK.
have it checked by an electronic engineer.
Fuses are designed to be protection devices, that is, to destroy themselves in order to protect an electronic circuit. Now, when brand new replacement fuses blow, it could mean two things: 1.- The replacement fuses are below the specified rating (you can find the rating by reading around the end metal caps of the original fuse), or 2.- The internal circuitry of the unit is damaged and is causing the fuses to blow immediately.
There is not much you can do yourself, unless you are technically inclined and know how to test the unit for internal damage. If you are not technically inclined, your best bet is to have the unit inspected to asses the damages and the cost of repair if you elect to do so. Hope this helps.
