My sony stereo is on protect mode what do i do

Turn volume down, remove speaker wires from back and power on, if protect stays off there is a short in the speaker wire or speaker. But if the protect comes on, the ouput ic is shorted.

Radio flashes (protect)cant get any stations at all

This is an indicator of an output load problem, turn unit off! remove the speaker wires from the back of the stereo, now turn power on and turn the volume down. If the word protect stays off there is a short in the wire or one of the speakers, but! if the word protect comes on " with the speakers and wires dis-connected " it indicates a short in the audio output ic pack in the stereo.

My stereo won't work. Whenever I try to turn it on, it always turns off saying "protect." How can I fix this?

The protect has come on because it senses an output load problem, Turn the unit off, unhook the speakers and wires from the stereo, now turn the unit on and turn the volume down as far as it will go, this should reset the processor ic, if the word protect stays off you have a short in the wiring or bad speaker. If the protect comes back on with everything unhooked the problem is in the audio output ic pack in the stereo and will require a technician to remedy.

My JVC mx-gc5 stereo says protect and then shuts off

If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).

Stereo goes into protect mode

Protect is a safety feature so that you do not blow your speakers. However with it hooked up with the computer you may have surpassed the max output. If it still does this with out going through the computer, it has been damaged.

Disconnect your speaker boxes. If the "protect" error goes, then the speakers or wires may be at fault. If the error remains, most likely the audio output IC is blown.

How to turn protect off

You cannot . This a feature that detects a short and shuts the stereo off before it can do further damage. If you can disconnect your speakers try that then turn on your stereo. If it displays protect mode your problem is internal. If it stays on try hooking up one speaker at a time to see if one of your speaker is bad. Make sure you turn off your stereo before attempting to reconnect your speakers . Good luck

Protect mode

Hi ,
Does your unit go into protect mode without speakers connected?.

Protect mode would indicate that the system is shutting down due to a fault in the output which drives the speakers. You can check the speaker wiring, are there an loose or frayed wires? Any small "whiskers" or wire touching anything? Check the wire all the way to the speaker for damage, some pets love to chew wires! Are you using the original speakers or added extra? The impedance of the speakers must be in the range shown on the back of the unit. Have you perhaps had the volume up very high? This could result in speaker damage that could also cause this error. Try disconnecting the speakers & see if the unit powers up, if it does then put the speakers back one at a time to discover the faulty one. If all this checks out OK then the output stage itself is probably faulty & that's a job for the repair shop. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
