Hi Jean,

Without a brand and a model, best that I can provide are generic possibilities:
1. unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of hours. This is supposedly to reset most systems; and/or
2. check the speaker wires and make sure none of any bare wires are touching each other.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again Jean,

    Understand now that your concern is a Sharp BA-1700. The message "PROTECT" indicates that the built-in diagnostics have determined an internal fault which could either be:
    1. the logic circuitry or the firmware controlling it;
    2. amplifier circuitry or its components;
    3. mechanical problem.

    Of the above, I tend to suspect the audio amplifier section to be at fault. Normally this would be a single power pack IC that provides audio amplification to drive your speakers. They often fail when driven loud.

    If you have done any or both of the two procedures initially posted and no positive results, am afraid that your only alternative is to seek the services of a qualified professional since this would require opening the unit. Further diagnosis and appropriate repairs would require that you be familiar with electronic circuitry and components, use of a DVM and a soldering iron.

Get a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, if no change the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, far cheaper to buy a new player.

My kenwood head cd unit in my car keeps on flashing "protect" i checked all wires in the head unit and nothing.it will stay ok for a while but it goes back to protect...


hi,
Check the speaker in you car which are connected to you head unit. if the speaker or the wire which runs to the speakers have some problem then the head unit will show protect.
Also one more possibility is, the faulty output amplifier IC in the head unit. if the audio out put IC is short or fail then also the unit will show the same. Audio output Ic means the audio amplifier. Check the speaker and wire first. Mainly the wire check is there is any insulation damage in it. if the insulation get damaged possibility to get contact with the metal part of the body of the car then also the protect will appear.
ok

DENON UD-M30 CD Player is displaying the word PROTECT and will not function. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Many thanks.


HI:
Usually when a receiver goes into protect mode, there are several reasons, One is there is a bad speaker connected to the unit, this will cause the unit to to into protect mode, try disconnecting all speaker from the unit and turning it on if it does not go into protect then one of the speakers are bad. Another reason is the power output Amplifier IC is shorted inside the unit. Another reasons could be that speaker wires are touching each other and causing a short. Disconnect all unit connecting to the unit and try turning on, if it stays on and no protect then connect them including the speakers one at time until you determine which is causing the error. If it goes into protect with nothing but the unit on then the Output IC is bad and the unit needs servicing.

I have a sharp cd-sx62v player it displays me protect message as i switched on the power and no other buttons are working so i am not able to play cds, cassete, fm.please help me


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Reset the player by pressing ON/STAND BY button and simulatenously press preset << and preset>> buttons of the unit.
This will reset the microprocessor of the player.
