If your stereo is showing the protect display, it is an indication of a power shorting. This protection is to avoid serious circuit burnout and could be in the power output stages of the set. You will need to open and check for short in the output drives, the preoutput stages, the speakers or even the protection circuit amp.
It is important to address and check these sections with a votage check, elimination process too confirm the part. this may be a little tough and diffcult unles it shows easily on a continuity test. Helpful. Good day

Protection keeps poping up on my naxa stereo


The only thing you can do is disconnect all speakers and turn it on if it still says protect your problem is not speaker related. But if it comes on turn it back off and hook up 1 speaker at a time,then turn it on see if its ok.Then hook up 1 more try it again and so on.

My stereo sysytem is a mini stereo: serial number 10200055. It currently says "protect", what is this and how do we return our system to normal operations?


Hi there,

When the word PROTECT appears on this display, this means the unit has detected a critical fault which could potentially cause harm to your stereo system.

The most common cause is a short circuit somewhere - something even as simple as loose speaker wiring could cause a short, triggering the Protect message.

You will need to determine if there is a possible short somewhere, so I recommend you start by firstly turning power OFF, disconnecting all speaker wires, then turn unit back ON.

Operate the stereo (without speakers) and turn volume up:
  • If Protect message appears when turning volume up, then stereo unit itself has an internal fault
  • If no Protect message appears, then suspect the speakers may be causing the issue.
  • Reduce volume and turn unit OFF
Re-connect speakers (ensure the connections are secure), turn unit ON:
  • If turning volume up triggers the Protect message again, there is an issue with the speakers or connections

Hope this helps.....

My stereo won't work. Whenever I try to turn it on, it always turns off saying "protect." How can I fix this?


The protect has come on because it senses an output load problem, Turn the unit off, unhook the speakers and wires from the stereo, now turn the unit on and turn the volume down as far as it will go, this should reset the processor ic, if the word protect stays off you have a short in the wiring or bad speaker. If the protect comes back on with everything unhooked the problem is in the audio output ic pack in the stereo and will require a technician to remedy.

My JVC mx-gc5 stereo says protect and then shuts off


If protect is coming up on the display, it means the system is detecting a short somewhere on one of the speakers and so is turning the amp off to avoid damage.
Check all the connections at the back of the amp to ensure they are not shorting, and at the back of each speaker, if nothing is found there, check each wire for damage (like squashed or rodent damage).

My sharp Stereo is stuck in '' protect'' mode


Protect mode is not something that a reset will fix. Basically it indicates that there is a problem with the final output stage of the amplifier. Normally this indicates that the output transistors are defective. In most boomboxes, the amplifier is a single IC. If you can post the model number, I can provide you with the required part and cost.

Thanks,
Dan

Security Code for Protect mode


Turn on the car so the radio is flashing "Protect." Look on the front / removable face of the stereo. On it you will find a small round hole - that's a reset button. Find a small paper clip, unfold the clip and stick it gently into the hole. The "Protect" will stop flashing, and Kenwood will be displayed. Unfortunately all your settings/presets will be gone, but at least the stereo is working again!

How to turn protect off


You cannot . This a feature that detects a short and shuts the stereo off before it can do further damage. If you can disconnect your speakers try that then turn on your stereo. If it displays protect mode your problem is internal. If it stays on try hooking up one speaker at a time to see if one of your speaker is bad. Make sure you turn off your stereo before attempting to reconnect your speakers . Good luck

Can't do anything - LCD screen says "PROTECT"


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.
