Question about Samsung Televison & Video
With regards to your recent query, when you
get a 'Protection' message on your unit it usually means the unit is
overheating. Please make sure there is nothing blocking the air vents on
the unit, nothing is sitting on top of the unit and that it is not near
any hot items like radiators. Please also check the cables that connect
the speakers, disconnect them all, reconnect, turn the unit off and back
on. If you have checked all of the above and the same thing still
happens, try resetting the unit, full instructions can be found in the
troubleshooting part of the user guide. Where did you purchase the
Pressing the STOP button on the front panel andholding it for 5 seconds". The power indicator flashes once and thesystem resets!

Tips for a great answer:
Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.
