Im not completely sure but it seems like that would either be a fuse or crossed wires.

remove the unit from power for about 15 min, that should clear the settings then plug it back in. if it still shows protect then there is a short in one of the power or ground wires.

I have a kenwood it says,kdc-mp142 and all of a sudden it just says protect. it wont do anything


The Kenwood radio will generally give a "PROTECT" error if the amp or receiver is being overloaded. This may mean that some of your wiring may have gotten frayed, one of your speakers isn't putting out the right voltage, or the receiver has decided to go bad. Make sure all of your connections in the back of the radio are solid and not frayed. If that's not the problem, try running each of the speakers one at a time. If one causes the radio to go into protect mode, that's your culprit.
If neither of these are the issue and the radio decides to stay in "protect" mode, your receiver may have seen better days and may need a replacement.

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,

Protect Mode on Kenwood KDC-MP335


this is very simple to do just take your face plate off and were you see a red light blinking just get like a bobby pin or something and pit it through the hole and the radio will reset and that should fix your problem

Display read protected and wont do anything


Usually, protect mode is enabled when the speaker output wiring has shorted together or is touching ground/+12V. I would verify that none of the speaker wiring has come loose.

You sure it's recognizing the CDR? And you are using 'consumer audio' cdr? Watch it at all times. If it 'opc fails' after you put a blank in it still shows as a CDR and 0:00 on the display but won't record. It's easy to miss.
