    Did you check that all other cords/cables are in good condition?

    Thanks for the update. It is very probable that the protector fuse just needs to be replaced. Good thing that it's there too...saved your whole system.

On my lg 4030 home theatre system,s-protection message pops up and the system turns off


Unhook the speakers and turn it on, if it stays on then one speaker is shorted, if it does not then unplug all the inputs and try again.
If it does not work then it needs to be serviced for a bad overload detection circuit.

My Sony home theater DZ290K had a push power protection on the display screen 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?

You may also refer to the following link for additional troubleshooting steps.

I have a Sony receiver STR-DG510. I was playing music through the receiver when it suddenly stopped and displayed/flashed protect. After unplugging everything and trying a different power outlet it still...


Most likley it is a bad channel. Needs output transistors and a couple of resistors. or it may need a pre-amp voltage ic.

Not a repair for your average do it yourselfer.

"PROTECT" appears on my DENON DHT-500SD


Sounds like a speaker wire is shorting against either another speaker wire or something metallic. Check your speaker wires to make sure they're not shorting (touching). If that doesn't work, I'd take it to a repair facility. Good luck!

sounds like you may have your speakers connected wrong or too many speakers. Check all your speaker wires for a goo tight connection and speaker compatibility with your Home theater system. Hope this will help you

Speaker errror message


The usual fix for "Speaker err" message is to simply unplug the sub-woofer power cord to reset the speaker diagram, plug it back in and remember to "match the negatives to negative, positives to positives" and never try to replace the original speakers with anything but equivilent speakers, adding on more speakers can cause the "Speaker err" message and an inoperative system.
