As had already been stated by several people, the "Push Power Protector" scrolling marquee means that you have a short in one or more of your speaker wires. This is an easy problem to fix. First, trouble shoot which wire(s) has the short by unplugging all 6 speaker wires from the back of the unit. Then turn on the unit and switch the function to "Tuner FM." That way when you start plugging the wires back in, you will have sound (music) playing out of the speakers you plug back in, thus ensuring that that speaker wire doesn't have the "short." Now, with the unit on, start plugging in the wires one at a time in the following order...Green, Purple, Red, White, Grey and then Blue. Somewhere in that sequence, you will find that the unit shuts down and the scrolling marquee of "Push Power Protector" comes back on. Viola! You have your short. For me, it was the Grey wire because I had spliced it with additional wire to reach the back of my room and the splice was touching, thus creating the short. I placed a little more electrical tape on the splice to keep it separate and I am back in business! Good luck! :)

Push power protector means your audio output circuits are shorted usually it happens when you play the unit too loud and for a log time to fix that you must have it repair they need to change the stk circuits

The solution to this problem is to never by Sony products. They've been banking on their name for far far too long and been pushing **** on consumers without keeping up the quality.

I had the same. It was caused by the speaking wire ends touching the unit. I was just setting it up and had not fully connected everything. They were just loose. In general i think the message is trying to say check the power or check all your cables for short circuts.

My HBD-DZ175 was intermittently giving the "Push Power Protection" indication. Most of the time the error was on. according to the repair manual, there are several protections (output overload, thermal overtemp, and some voltages that are monitored, I had already removed the speaker cables, but of course it could have been one the output amplifiers. I chased my tail around for some time checking voltages and stuff. When it was working _all_ of the voltages were spot on, when it was failed there weren't any DC voltages in the entire chassis. Something was causing the "Push Power Protection" signal to come up, which caused a rest to be sent out which shut the unit down. Finally I chased it back to the EN signal and found that when it was failing EN was a float (neither high nor low, just open). After a few seconds it pulsed to 3.6v and the PPP indication came on. I checked the other side of the connector, and it was low (ground). I wiggled the connector and it worked. I wiggled it again and if failed. I took the board out and turned the board over. All of the solder joints on that connector were dull (cold solder joints) The solder joint of the pin in which I was interested was misshapen and globbed with black and dull solder. I cleaned it up and found that most of the pad was missing. I replaced it with a jumper wire soldered directly to the pin and cleaned up the rest of the joints. It's working great now and I can push and wiggle that connector til the cows come home and it won't fail. YMMV.

OK- I guess I should have done more trouble shooting before I posted my message because I found the problem. In the process getting my TV ready for the wall (sliding it around) I set the base of the TV on the wire that connects the center surround sound speaker, which wore thru the plastic coating on the wire and caused a "short". So far... problem solved. I found the wire by disconnecting all of the wires and re-connected them one at a time while pushing the power button each time. This narrowed it down to the correct wire. Might be worth trying to see if there is a problem with one of the wires. Good luck!

Hi I had the same problem and when I contacted the Sony service centre they told me to replace the entire circuit board which will cost 6000+taxes and service charge which comes around 7500Rs.But When I contacted the Sony showroom they suggested me to go for a new Sony DVD home theatre which cost only 12990Rs. I have googled this problem but it seems a commom problem with all Sony DVD home theatres which they dont have proper solution to rectify this and I conclude this as a manufacturing defect in their design.Planning to approach Consumer Court to avail for damage.For any queries or help please contact me in firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

I had the "push power protect" fault on my sony cmt-cpx1, but only when cold. On first switch on the fault occurred after a few minutes. Switching off and on several would clear the fault. The problem indicates a short on the speaker cables, in my case disconnecting the speakers had no affect. This sort of fault can be caused by a dry joint in an area subjected to heat, ie, the expansion and contraction of the board will cause the soldered joints to fail. It was easy to identify the audio amp and the areas getting hot and solder all the joint. Problem fixed ! and has been ok for several weeks.
Hope this is of some help.

A short in the 12v line, almost always on the main board. Most common, a 220uf 16v cap from 12v to ground. Also the driver chip for the dvd.
