Protector flashing. Unplugged all cords, all speakers...everything...for several days and still flashing. No sound. Absolutely no technical assistance from Sony whatsoever. I am leery of bringing it to any service center unless I know what the problem is. I don't want to get ripped off. Can this be repaired without spending $500. Is is worth it?

Try disconnecting the speakers completely, and also all sources then try it again. If the problem stops, start reconnecting sources and speakers one at a time to see if you can find where the problem lies. If you disconnect everything and protector stays on, than maybe you have a heat issue or an internal component is damaged.
check speaker connections.sounds like the system is trying to stop some thing more serious happening by shutting itself down.a pain yes but saves blowing something up.if no luck,then definately send in for repair
A problem has been detected internal to the unit and it has been shutdown to prevent further damage. The typical cuase is shorted output transistors or a defective voltage amplifier IC. Either repair will run about $25-$40 for parts.
Reduce the volume level. IMPORTANT: If
the receiver is played back at maximum volume level it may enter the
protect mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run
very hot and may drain the output capacitors.
Disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
Ensure the top of the receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high. IMPORTANT: Some
receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies
through alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specific
Unplug the AC power cord for about 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.
