Usually "protect" mode means it has either

1. Overheated (a thermistor on/near the cooling fins for the audio output transisitors has indicated that the machine is running too hot). This is usually solved by turning the unit off for 30 min.

or

2. Some circuit inside the unit has indicated an error condition, turning your stereo into a doorstop.

Thanks,
Rob

Sony receiver stR se-501 found fuse burned after replaced turned on the flashing massage PROTECT come on . Did I miss anything?


Protect typically means that the fuse blew because something in your receiver went bad. It's now protecting your speakers from that badness. You need to get the receiver fixed or replaced.

I was playing some music pretty loud today on my Sony STR-DB790 and then no bang no crackling just strait to protect mode turned stereo off thinking nothing of it and now every time I turn it on strait to...


There is an output load causing the protect to engage, turn unit off and dis-connect the speaker wires from the back of the receiver, this will reset the processor ic. Now power on and turn volume right down, if the word protect stays off it means there is a short in the wires or one or more of the speakers. But if the word protect comes on with the "speakers and wires dis-connected" it indicates a short in one or more audio output ic's and will need a tech to address the extent of damage and cost.

There is a demo button. When it's plugged in the first time, or with a power loss, it reverts to that mode. Hit the demo button and it goes away. =)

My Kenwood amplifier is having problems, whenever i turn it on. all seems well until i play some music through it, after 30seconds to a minute the music will cut off and a distinct click is sometimes...


Your amp is going into protection. The click you hear is a relay meant to protect your speakers and stereo. Check your speakers with an ohm meter for the the proper ohms ( listed on the speaker ) and physically try to push each woofer and midrange cone in gently to make sure it moves and is not stuck or frozen in place. A speaker may read correctly on an ohm meter if the woofer is ok but if the tweeter or midrange is not working it will cause the amp to go into protection mode. When you play music stick your ear up to each tweeter\midrange\woofer to ensure they are working.
Your stereo could also be the culprit although usually if it plays music it is ok as long as you are not hearing loud pops. Loud pops are voltage spikes that indicate that a transistor\IC is breaking down and will eventually short. Good luck!
