Question about Kenwood KSC-310CCS Center Channel Speaker Car Speaker
My Kenwood stereo KDC-W3534 now just reads 'PROTECT' constantly when switched on and i don't have the handbook anymore..
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
I've just had the same problem and looking at the above suggestions took the head unit out and what do you know, half of the two part earth wire in my car leading to a crimped joiner had come loose where the headunit had been pushed too far back in the cage by my wife. No big deal, just undo join, put wire back in, tape up with electrical tape and ta-da! Fully functioning head unit again.

No need to do any silly thing, just press the RESET button located on the front panel. And there you go, its don't!

The speaker has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated so try to wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button.

This is a safety feature and it usually suggest that there is a problem with the internal amplifier, it could also be a trapped speaker wire. Remove the radio and check if any of the cables have been damaged and if you power up the radio with the speaker plug disconnected that will tell you if the fault is in the car or the radio

SOURCE: Kenwood kdc-148 is in protect
A car audio component like an amplifier (or in this case a headunit) is most likely to go into protection mode when there is a short in one of the speaker outputs-- in other words, if the + and - ends of one of the speaker leads are touching, this can cause damage to the internal amplifier of the unit. Some units will respond by putting the amplifier into "protection" mode, so that it does not damage itself. Check connections on the back of your unit, or take it back to the shop that installed it.

You need to switch the aux function back on and to do this you need to turn the radio on to standby and press and hold the menu button for a few seconds and then use the toggle switch on the right side of the fascia to get to aux and then flick the switch forward to switch the aux on
