Question about Samsung HT-DS1000 System

1 Answer

DVD turns off with "Protection" message.

I connected all the wires and plugs from the speakers to the sub-woofer, from the dvd player to the sub and from my television thru audio video plugs to the dvd. Now when I turn on the dvd w/o the sub problems, it starts up fine. But when I turn on the sub-woofer and turn on the dvd ...a message, "Protection" comes up on the dvd screen and the whole thing automatically turns off. I try turning it on again and I can't get to the menu screen or anything. A loading screen comes up with a progress bar, but before it can get to complete that "Protection" message comes up again and shuts off everything. Can someone shed some light on this? Much appreciated and thanks in advance!

Re: DVD turns off with "Protection" message.

It may be becoz you are using too many things from 1 plug socket / power adapter.

I have a Sony DAV S500 AV system and with certain DVD and with the volumn just over 20 (not really that loud), the system shuts down and PROTECT shows in the message window. I read somewhere on the web...

If the subwoofer and other speakers were included with the system, THAT is what they're designed for. Mixing and matching with other products is usually discouraged if not forbidden.

If the problem returns with connection of the sub it may be defective or on its way out. Internal damage to the voice coil from being overdriven could have melted or worn through the insulation and it would cause intermittent undesired electrical contact or load variation under certain conditions, like high volumes.

If your speaker level settings are unusually boosted for the sub you may be overdriving it.

Connect a new dvd player at the home cinema set??!!!!

You can go for Samsung, Lg or any product of your choice. The most important thing is that you check the back of your old player to see the connections, and make sure the player you are about to by has those connections also so that you would be able to connect your old sub woofer and speaker with the new player.

I just replaced the cord running from the sub to the dvd player. now my sub will not turn on

steps to trouble shoot for sub-woofer detection :
1. please check whether the cord is securely connected at both the ends.
2. check if there is transmission through the cord (there'll be a small static through the cord if there is transmission.)
3. reset the dvd-player to default audio-output and then choose the 5.1 sound system which is the correct setting for the th-c6.
4. also check the settings in the th-c6 whether it is in 5.1 mode(whether it includes the woofer-as it can also simple use the stereo speakers)
5. now check the sound output in all speakers by playing any original home-theatre system enabled dvd.

the system will work perfectly if the cord is in good condition, otherwise please replace the cord again, and this time check it at the store.

When I turn my unit on, it will turn itself off in a few second.

have you checked to see if any of your speakers are shorted out? the rt2870does have a self protection system in place such that if theres too much power being drawn from the system or if a short occurs it will shut off. or the switch that powers the sub may have gone bad so try disconnecting the sub and see if that helps. i have the same system and i had the same problem and i had to replace the onboard sub-woofer power switch.

no, u cant use the speakers with other normal DVD player because it wont have amplification for the speakers... u can use the sub to other dvd player because its inbuilt 120 watt woofer. ur dvd player is 5-disc player as wel as 120 X 2 and 80 X 3 watts amplifier (AV receiver ).... so just the JVC better sound thru the sub and speakers...

I was moving around my large woofer speaker last night and then all of a sudden the unit went into protection mode. I tried all the various solutions posted on here and nothing worked. Then I went back to my speaker connections on the woofer and unplugged them and plugged them in again and it seems to be ok now. Very annoying problem. Can I suggest unplugging all the speaker cables and replugging them back in. Also another solution may have been holding down the power button when powering up the unit. Give all the above a try.

Speaker errror message

The usual fix for "Speaker err" message is to simply unplug the sub-woofer power cord to reset the speaker diagram, plug it back in and remember to "match the negatives to negative, positives to positives" and never try to replace the original speakers with anything but equivilent speakers, adding on more speakers can cause the "Speaker err" message and an inoperative system.
