I turned on my radio after taking it to a freinds house and turned it up to 26 and it shut off and all it says is protection mode. I've had the radio a while now and never experienced this before. I no longer have the guide that came with it. I've tried unplugging it for quite some time and it still does it. How can I fix this?

try unplugging the speakers and then turning it on...if the protect goes away then you have a bad speaker or wiring...if it still displays the same message then the amplifier output may be blown and will need to get it repaired at a shop
make sure your speakers are connected in the right slots (output) Sometimes my radio did that especially if i turned it up louder and the wires wer not connected correctly. (also , your radio might no be recieving enough air so it gets hot and turns off.) Your radio might skip because the vibrations of your speakers' distortion is too high. (try moving the speakers farther from your Radio)
You can't. The main amplifier module will probably have a channel blown. The unit is detecting this and tripping into protect mode to stop further damage occurring. Needs to go to a repair place. sorry. ps If you get sound briefly before it trips off then it may just be a speaker wire shorting out! worth checking
Don't buy a stereo that prints up 'PROTECT MODE' and then does not tell you how to cure it. This is a good way of getting people to buy a new one only live and learn do not buy the same manufacturer again. I have a nice just out of warrenty JVC that when I switch it on sits there grinning at me with 'PROTECT MODE' showing. Yes I have entered cash protect mode and decided I am not going to buy another JVC.
It is most likely an amplifier problem. I had this problem before. It went into "Protect" mode and shut down. When I turned it back on, my left channel speakers made a buzzing noise and did the same thing again. I got it diagnosed at an electronics repair shop and they found that the two STK amplifier IC's were bad. One is about $106 and the second one is about $78. I got it fixed for about $200 and works basically like new again.
It may be that there is a problem with a fuse inside the stereo. It may say protect because the fuse has broken a connection that allows it to turn on. If the protect goe sup it is trying to help save the stereo from cooking its self, and give you a chance to get it fixed. If that is not the problem then it may be easier to just buy a new one, because a fix may be expensive if you don't have any warranties.
