Protection Mode in Aux

My Samsung HT-E330 keeps going to protection mode, while using the AUX function, all other functions work normally. I took it back to the shop where I bought it and had it checked, but they didn't find anything. The saddest part is that I bought it about two weeks ago, which means it's broken from the start. What should I do?

SOURCE: dvd turns off after displaying ''protection''

protection error message means that your unit's fan is not working

it is a feature to keep your unit from overheating

check if there is anything blocking the fan of your unit from rotation or replace the fan

SOURCE: My HT-X20 keeps on going

Suspect heat.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Power problem


If the protect function works but is causing you problems, cancelling the protection function should help, and it will be possible to enter the self-diagnostic function mode. This should disable all functions of the protection mode, excluding the 'excess electrical current detection' feature.

While pressing the "Tone Control" and "Info" keys, try pressing the power key to turn on the power. Keep pressing those 2 keys for 3 seconds longer.

this should activate the Self Diagnostic function, with your Protection Mode disabled.

in this mode the 'sleep' section on the tv's fluorescent display flashes to indicate that the mode is properly activated.

just be very aware, this function is normally there as a safety feature and i cant guarantee that disabling it altogether won't cause other problems down the road. best of luck!

I have a Pioneer DEH-P5200 and i plugged the aux chords in the back to my ipod but dont know how to switch to the aux mode on radio...


OK - had the same problem and got it finally figured out. Power the unit on the ignition key. Press and hold the source button so the unit shuts off. With the unit shut off press and hold the function button (the key is to hold the function button down) The clock, aux etc will show on the screen. Press (but do not hold) the function button and it will move to each function. When you get to the AUX press the ^ button and the will switch the AUX to "on". Once you know, like everything else, it's pretty easy.

After 20-30 minutes work in the USB or AUX mode, the unit turns off. At display panel says PROTECTION. After that this problem (when I turn on) repeats after 3-5 minutes.

  • if you tried that already check if your system gets hot when it turns off
  • maybe you need more ventalation on your system...

No sound thru surround sound system in TV Mode


Hi,
You need to connect your TV to the AUX connection in the back of your HT system. Then set your HT system on AUX 1 and wait about 5 seconds for the TV sound to come through. If it does not work on AUX 1, you may have to try on AUX 2 or AUX 3 settings on your HT system. Make sure the A/V cable you use is good and in working order and is a good quality cable.
Hope that helps, Gary
