Sharp DVD Micro Theater System XL-DV60 solution Posted by sonny.marquez on Nov 21st, 2008 at 11:46pm

I own a similar system that began to have a "protect" error message when I crank up the volume. Before you proceed, the solution requires you to open up your system by removing the top cover via removal of five screws and opening it up. So IF you are not experienced in opening up electronic equipment I suggest you find somebody who does. The error is caused by the cooling fan being stuck or not able to spin. The system has a sensor wherein, when it detects that the "amplifier" IC heats up, it spins up the fan to cool it down. IF the system detects that the fan is not spinning during the cooling phase, it will give out the "protect" message. Note that it will only spin when you crank up the volume. Less or 0 volume will shut down the fan due to it's "energy star" feature.

To solve the problem, I cleaned out the dust in the system via a 1 inch wide paint brush (haven't tried the compressed bottled air used to clean computers BUT it might do) and nudged the fan. Played the system w/o a cover and observed the fan operation and so far it has solved the issue. I plan to lubricate the fan shaft with very small amount(less than a drop) of machine oil using a syringe. If it doe not work, I plan to see if I could purchase a replacement motor for the fan...

hope this helps....

My Kenwood KDC-U453 cd receiver displays "PROTECT" on connection and nothing works - any solutions appreciated!!!!


Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

My stereo says" protect" everytime i turn it on. can't get anything else.


Hello grammagrisbo, hi your Kenwood head units will show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs so check to see if the impedance load meets your radio, 8ohms or 4 ohms?. having parallel two speakers on a single channel may cause this dilemma. This might also mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back to normal, the next time you turn it on.
If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do something to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. power it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker only. Turn it on again and see if it will displays "protect" message.

If the radio works with one speaker connected, connect the other speaker to the second channel, you may have now the idea where the problem begun, you will identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that channel.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try the other one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit.

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

My boombox is displaying the word "Protect" in the display. ???


The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier section. This unit will require repair as a reset will not clear this. There is an audio amp IC inside that needs to be replaced. Figure on about $15 or so for the part.

Have a teac amp and dvd / cd player moved house plugged in and now amp makes clicking noise and displays "protect" ?? tried resetting as per manufacturers instructions ............still no joy ?


Protect mode happens when the amp detects a problem internally and shuts down to prevent further damage. The most common cause of this is shorted output transistors. Without takeing measuremetns inside the unit, I can not state the specific problem, but a repair for this is relatively simple. Expect a cost of $15-$40 for parts plus the local labor rate.

My audio system says protect on display


Hi Jean,

Without a brand and a model, best that I can provide are generic possibilities:
1. unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of hours. This is supposedly to reset most systems; and/or
2. check the speaker wires and make sure none of any bare wires are touching each other.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
