check/replace your speaker wires. If a wire came loose, it will go into "protect" mode and shut down, to protect from a short circuit.

SOURCE: STR-DE475 receiver flashes "PROTECT" when turned on

Protection is usually a sign of overheating or something is wrong at the power amplifier's output.

Theory: Protection is a delay and sometimes an internal test to allow the electronics to stabilize during power up before they are allowed to interact with the speakers. The most common cause of it remaining ON is that a speaker cable pair is shorted. Some isolation is required...

1. Turn the Power OFF.
2. Disconnect each set of the speaker wires that are directly attached to the receiver. Mark them so you remember where each one went. pay special attention to which conductor is on "+" or "POS" and which is on "-", "COM" or "Ground". You may elect to disconnect them one pair at a time if your sytem is complex and you don't want to lose track of where things were.

Turn the Power ON. Is the "Protect" indication gone from the display?
--------------------
If YES, you have a shorted speaker wire or speaker. To isolate the specific cause:

1. Turn the Power OFF.
2. Attach ONE speaker wire pair at a time and test it by turning the Receiver ON. When the "Protect" light returns you have isolated at least one of the cause(s). Disconnect the defective speaker cable and continue isolation of all speaker cables. Visually examine the cable at both ends for frayed wires that could touch each other or contact metal on the receiver or other objects.

To isolate further within the cable/speaker pair - disconnect the speaker end of the cable on the failing path. Try another cable that you know works, or at least one that doesn't cause Protection to stay on.

If you're electrically savvy and have a Digital Volt/Ohm Meter you can troubleshoot the short(s) with it.
-------------------------

If NO, there is probably an internal problem.

Is it solid or does it come on after the Receiver has been ON awhile.
It could be overheating.
Is the unit hot to the touch?
Is there a cooling device (fan)?
Is it stopped or clogged with dust?
Is there adequate ventilation around the unit for air to flow?
Clean any ventilation slots on the top and bottom of the unit.
Avoid stacking components that produce heat under an amplifier or receiver. Their heat rises. Also keep them away from other heat sources like like home heating vents and radiators.

Problem solid and NOT related to the speakers or heat: internal malfunction.

Let me know.

SOURCE: flashes protector

Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected.

When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.

Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection.

Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. then connect cable back and see if you get rid of protect state. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely.
If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable.

If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault.

In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault.

If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician.

SOURCE: hello. my sony receiver is flashing protector mode

More than likly the built in amplifier is dead and its time to lay it to rest. Before you do that, make sure all your positive and negitives are correct and that none of the wires are touching one another.

When I turn on my Home Theater Sony Model hcd-hdx576wf this message appears, "protector, push power". what I can do?


Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the word PROTECT or PROTECTOR is flashing on the A/V receivers display.
1. Check the speaker wires and speakers for proper connections.
2. Reduce the volume level. IMPORTANT: If the receiver is played back at maximum volume level it may enter the protect mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors.
3. Disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
4. Ensure the top of the receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
5. If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high. IMPORTANT: Some receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies through alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specific information.
6. Unplug the AC power cord for about 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.
