Hi Joey - I had exactly the same problem.

In my case, I followed the advice of others and took the thing apart. On the main amp board there is a large brown capacitor. Mine had come completely loose, so I soldered it back in place with a good amount of solder to make sure the contacts were ok. I also dabbed some solder on the headphone connectors on the same board (just follow the wire from the headphone socket to the board). Well, when I put it back together and tried it again everything worked perfectly, and it has so far remained free from the error. Hope that helps !

Plays for a few minutes and pops and goes off?

Check the connectors on the speakers arent shorting and are connected correctly. A sony downloadable manual is available on the sony website it will tell the correct way to connect speakers. If tht doesnt stop change sound field to 2 channel that worked for me .

The protect message indicates that a problem was found in the output stage of the amplifier. Unless this gets repaired, nothing will work. As a verification that the speakers or the wires are not the problem, unplug all of the speakers and try again. If protect still is displayed, the problem is inside the unit.
