Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and turn it back on. If it does not go into protection, your receiver is ok. Re connect speakers one at a time and test until your receiver goes into protection, then trace the speaker wire to the speaker for cuts or shorts. If you have a multimeter, switch it to ohms and check the speaker for a dead short, you may have a blown speaker. Hope this helps.

Kenwood KDC-MP732 CD Player in protect mode how do i get it off had a blown speaker fixed it and still in protect mode


Protect Mode (Blink): The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated.

Solution: Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

Here is a copy of the Instruction Manual for the Kenwood KDC-X790 and KDC-MP732.

Kenwood kdc-mp208 stuck in ''protect'' mode....


Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers2_bing.gif or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.

I got a Kenwood KDC-MP438U and its stuck on protected mode


Protected mode means that there is a speaker wire that is grounding out on the chassis, another wire or another wire. Check all the wire connections to make sure there is no loose wire that may be getting grounded out. After it's insulated properly and reconnected, hit the reset and you'll be back in business. k

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!
