If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).

JVC MX-GT88 sound system showing protected them shut off why


Chances are that something is blown in the power output stages and units shuts down to protect against further damage.

Repair or replace, which ever is cheaper!

Front faceplate/grille lights go on and off on their own..unit works perfectly otherwise JVC MX-GC5


Sounds like the unit is in 'demo' mode. Should be a button on the remote to turn this off.

JVC TH-V70 Shuts Down


Hello
Even after disconnecting the speakers, the systems shut down, means that there is something short inside the set. Normally, the output amplifier section circuits will have the short. The set need service, and may have to replace the audio output IC of audio secion. Contact the nearest JVC authorised service center at your town. OK.

You got to open this puppy up and replace the 2 bad IC boards.  Known problem with this brand stereo.  Defect in the IC boards causes your fuses to blow and they will keep blowing every time you try to put new ones in.  Cost for parts will be about $200.

Stereo goes into protect mode


Protect is a safety feature so that you do not blow your speakers. However with it hooked up with the computer you may have surpassed the max output. If it still does this with out going through the computer, it has been damaged.

My compact component system mx-gc5 keeps turning it self off after u turn it on. it stays on for like 10 sec


This is probably a fault on the power supply sometimes caused by a diode. If you are capable investigate but if not PLEASE dont try anything to put your life in danger as the voltages present in the stereo can easily kill or injure. Good luck.

Yep, as I suspected, the STK412-430 needs to be replaced. That is the most common failure part. Try replacing that and your problem should be resolved.

Protect problem


I'm not really familiar with your specific model, so I don't know what the output stage looks like. I'd guess that this unit has a large black 'amp-pac" for the amplifier section. This should be attached to a heat sink in the rear of the unit. Look to see what the markings are on that part. I expect to see STKxxx. Can you post that here?

Thanks,
Dan

Just wanted to know if there was a way to have the audio output come from the JVC 460W MX-GC5 speakers instead of my tv?


If I was reading right there should be an auxillary input in the front if not the back of the stereo. If your TV has matching connectors just run RCA cables from the back of your TV into the AUX. Then your TV might have a menu where you can turn the internal speakers off. I know mine does and mine is very out dated. I hope this helped.
