The protect message indicates that a problem was found in the output stage of the amplifier. Unless this gets repaired, nothing will work. As a verification that the speakers or the wires are not the problem, unplug all of the speakers and try again. If protect still is displayed, the problem is inside the unit.

Samsung dvd player display says "protection" . Wont turn on.


Swtch off and disconnect and reconnect all the wiring especially speaker wires.
Also try resetting as per manual.
If that doesn't work then could be capacitor blown on motherboard.

DVD system shuts down during DVD play with various parts of shows


I think this is the answer you are looking for.

Let me know if you need more help.

Knowledge Article C337191 Error: The message PROTECT or UNPLUG shows in the display.
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when a PROTECT or UNPLUG error is displayed.
IMPORTANT: The top of the receiver must have proper ventilation to keep from over heating.
  1. Reduce the volume level.
  2. NOTE: If the receiver is played at the maximum volume level it may enter the PROTECT mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run hot and drain the output capacitors.
  3. If both the A and B speakers are being powered by the receiver at the same time, turn off the surround sound option.
  4. If protect occurs only when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high.
  5. NOTE: Some receivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequencies through alternate connections. Consult the user manual for specific information.
  6. Ensure the speaker wiring is not damaged and is properley connected to the back of the receiver and speakers.
  7. If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

I was moving around my large woofer speaker last night and then all of a sudden the unit went into protection mode. I tried all the various solutions posted on here and nothing worked. Then I went back to my speaker connections on the woofer and unplugged them and plugged them in again and it seems to be ok now. Very annoying problem. Can I suggest unplugging all the speaker cables and replugging them back in. Also another solution may have been holding down the power button when powering up the unit. Give all the above a try.

Protect


When "protect" appears on the front panel display, it means that the speaker protection circuit is in function. Visually check all your speaker connections at the back of the unit and at the back of each speaker as well. Make sure none of them are shorting out. If that is not the problem, turn off the unit, disconnect all speakers, turn unit on and verify that problem is gone. If gone, one of your speakers or wires are defective. If problem persists, the DAV-C450 internal circuitry might be in need of service. Never connect or disconnect speakers with the unit powered on. Hope this helps.

Fixed Mine!!!!

My Home theatre started to do the same thing today and I manged to get it going again by reseting the ratings password and changing the batteries in my remote. Oddly enough, I have never set a ratings password so I suspect the batteries caused the issue. Seems to be back to normal. Instructions for the reset are in the manual. Here's a link to the online one at Panasonics website http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SAHT730.PDF

The DVD player no longer works


try this - while in DVD mode (no disc) hit the stop button on the unit and the "10" button on the remote. It might work as this initilizes the unit.
