Home theater or amplifier has inbuilt protection circuit to monitor output signal of amplifier as well as speaker impedance that are hooked with amplifier. If any problem occurs, protection will activate and shut down amplifier to avoid further damage (or expected damage) in amplifier and speakers, same time display error code as Protect.
In this Sharp HT-X1 system, one of speakers is defective and causing Protect activation because home theater is working up to 20 volume level.
Please unhook all connected speakers with system, turn on and increase volume level and monitor does it go to protect mode? If yes, them amplifier has internal problem like dry solder joints in amplifier output section etc.
If amplifier stays OK then lower the volume, hook one speaker at a time to test protect error, found good, unhook it and put other speaker until you see protect error with any specific speaker that is bad.
Hope above info would help you to diagnose problem.
let me know further question, if any.

How do I shut of the Protection on the Samsumg HT TP-33 in order to play a DVD

If you mean the unit is self protecting due to a short or overload, disconenct all the speakers and see if that helps, then troubleshoot the cause. Otherwise, it needs service.

Then there's this....

Copy Protection

Many DVD discs are encoded with copy protection. Because of this, you should only connect

your DVD player directly to your TV, not to a VCR. Connecting to a VCR results in a distorted picture

from copy-protected DVD discs.

Sharp DVD Micro Theater System XL-DV60 solution Posted by sonny.marquez on Nov 21st, 2008 at 11:46pm

I own a similar system that began to have a "protect" error message when I crank up the volume. Before you proceed, the solution requires you to open up your system by removing the top cover via removal of five screws and opening it up. So IF you are not experienced in opening up electronic equipment I suggest you find somebody who does. The error is caused by the cooling fan being stuck or not able to spin. The system has a sensor wherein, when it detects that the "amplifier" IC heats up, it spins up the fan to cool it down. IF the system detects that the fan is not spinning during the cooling phase, it will give out the "protect" message. Note that it will only spin when you crank up the volume. Less or 0 volume will shut down the fan due to it's "energy star" feature.

To solve the problem, I cleaned out the dust in the system via a 1 inch wide paint brush (haven't tried the compressed bottled air used to clean computers BUT it might do) and nudged the fan. Played the system w/o a cover and observed the fan operation and so far it has solved the issue. I plan to lubricate the fan shaft with very small amount(less than a drop) of machine oil using a syringe. If it doe not work, I plan to see if I could purchase a replacement motor for the fan...

hope this helps....
