Question about Kenwood Car Audio & Video
Either the laser sled assembly or the platter/turntable encoder. Both are costly to repair and/or find replacement parts for.

SOURCE: toc error
toc error means "table of contents" error... means the player is unable to read the disc at all. May have a dirty focal lense to laser. clean gently with some windex on a cotton wool bud. It may be a faulty spindle motor that spins the disc. the bearings get worn or uneven and do not allow for disc reading to be successful. a check for this is a drop of oil to the bearing. It may then start to read discs, but will still require the motor to be replaced. . Check for the above... but if there is more required, take it to a Kenwood 'Agent... it may need a laser change

The protection function is activated when the speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. (The reset button is that little pinhole button below and to the right of the volume control). If you do this and the "PROTECT" code doesn't disappear, you'll have to consult a service center. Further, if you had this professionally installed, they should be obligated to fix the issue for you (hopefully).

Does it play the tuner but not the CD?
If it so, the problem is directly related to the CD deck. If not, the problem could be a sensor or any number of other components that may have overheated.
Try to reset the unit. Most of the time this error is an electrical problem not fixable by the end user. But it is worth trying to reset the microprocessor and see if that helps.
Here is a diagram of where the reset button is at. Press it in with the tip of an ink pen or paperclick, whatever you have that will fit into the little hole. Just hold it in a couple of seconds. Be advised that when yo reset the unit, you will loose all things in memory like the correct time, preset radio stations ect.
If this does not help you will need to have it checked out by a good repair center. These Alpine radios are very good radios and are worth getting fixed unless the estimate is close to what you paid for it.
good luck, I hope this helps. if so, a good rating would really be appreciated. You can always ask me for more help if you need it. I have been repairing car and home audio equipment for over 17 years.
