    I have the same problem with my Sony V444ES receiver. It will power on and functions well for a period but will often cut out after a loud "pop" followed by a flashing PROTECTION message. If I power it down for several seconds, sometimes it will come back on and play fine for another period. Usually, though, it "pops" again and I have to power down many times before it works again. Needless to say, this is extremely annoying and I would like to figure out why it is happening. Any suggestions? Thank you very much for your help.

    I have a Sony STR-DG500 Receiver. The same problem !! Eror message"PROTECT" showed up when powers on. I had opened its case and discovered that there's a blown-fuse. Then I replaced it with a same type of fuse. When I powered it on again, self-detection goes about 10 seconds, an eror message "protect" came up. After that, the reciever shut down itself.

    Anybody with any idea what went wrong?

    Thks....

Well, i just got this thing from a friend. its a Denon AVR-800. when powered up it displays the stops, just before finishing a -protect- shows up. There's a little red light standby light that blinks off and on also. i think that has to do with the internal problem. any suggestions?

Can anyone help. I have an older Denon AVR 800 receiver. I was experiencing a problem with it going into protection mode and finally it blew a fuse. I replaced the fuse, but as soon as I turn it on, it blows again. Can anyone tell me how I can fix it?

The protection message indicates a problem was detected in the final stage of the amp section. It could be as simple as a voltage regulator problem or the output transistors have failed. If you can provide the make and model, I should be able to give you the most likely parts.

    Yeeaa; just wondering about "protect" mode on a Denon AVR-610 AV sorround reciever. It was on while I was working in the area and started sparking (top was wet from my sweat so that is the probable culprit) and smelling like burnt electronics. I have top off and cannot find burnt parts, two fuses seem intact... Thanks

Samsug HT-SK5 fails with 'Protection' on display


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.
