Hello.. I have Sony MHCEX500 MINI HIFI Component system. There is a problem of PUSH POWER PROTECT. How can I fix it..????

The "PROTECT" and "PUSH POWER" messages will flash alternately when the protective device of the amplifier has been activated because a strong signal was input, or if there is a short-circuit detected. Press the POWER button on the unit to turn off the system, and check the following items after "STANDBY" disappears.

1) Are the + and - speaker cords short-circuited?
2) Are you using only the specified speakers?.
3) Is anything blocking the ventilation holes of the system?

How to reset my sony mhc-gs100??? it keep saying power protect...

Your stereo went into protect mode to prevent complete failure of the amplifier inside that radio. Most of the time this happens from playing the stereo real loud for a real long time and it overheats. Most of the time disconnecting the receiver/stereo and letting it cool all the way down or at least 5 minutes and then reconnecting it to the power source will reset the protection mode. You want to make sure you are keeping the radio cool. Don't stack anything on top of it and try keeping a small fan blowing on it to expedite the heat out from the unit. Also turning it down every now and then to let everything cool down a bit will help prevent it from going into protection mode as well.

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.

I have sharp cd pc3500 stereo system when i turn the power on the message on the screen shows PROTECT. I cant do anything nor any function work

Make sure the speaker wires aren't shorted together and that they are not freyed or cracked...the unit is in protect due to it's internal circuitry sensing a shorted output condition...this is in place to protect the unit should the speaker wires become shorted together. You can remove the speaker wires entirely and then turn on the unit to see if it comes on...if so then I would look at each wire carefully to make sure they look good..of course if the unit comes on and the wires look good then you may have a bad speaker component...Now, if the unit stays in protect after you unplug the speakers, then the unit probably has a blown audio output stage inside the circuitry and will need to be serviced.

Saying protect and wot let us use it

This unit will go into protection MODE for a number of reasons It has eight quick blow fuses inside the can to add to the over all protection, I have repaired electronic equipment for years and I have never come across such a well protected system. having said that I am working on a unit now that buzzes and the volume will go up when turning it up or (down) on the unit itself the remote works to turn it up or down. So your trouble take the can apart and make sure the plugs (ribbon wires) are all seated properly then try.
Presuming you have already made sure the speaker wires are in the right places and not crossing from frayed wires.
Seating the wires and cleaning the dust may just fix your troubles.
Any unit that has a fan is doubling as an air filter and there are some transistors and IC’s that will over heat in this system.

Protection displayed and shuts off

The protect message indicates that the output amp section has a problem. Normally this requires the replacement of the output transistors or the output amp pac. Expect the repair cost to be about $20-$60 for parts plus the local labor rate.

Sharp Stereo- Protect Mode??

Try plugging in a pair of headphones. I tried it without the speakers connected and since it found the headphones and they were OK the system came out of protect mode.
