    The GX700ES system was working until I moved. Then when I connected it again, it powers up, plays (static when set to FM at least) for about 1-2 seconds, and then says "protector". I thought it had to deal with a short on the speakers, or that no speakers wer connected, but even when I switch speakers to off, and just a headphone, it does the same thing. It's a great stereo, and I'd hate to have to buy a new amp just because of this.

    I turn the power on and after about 10 seconds the screen says protector mode and locks up. Any solutions?

    HK 3380 keeps saying "protect" after seconds or minutes of playing and then turns itself off. sometimes lower volume makes it stay on for longer.

This receiver is very sensitive to heat. Make sure that receiver has it's own outlet and that it is properly getting ventilation. Unplug receiver for 1 to 2 hrs... Also make sure the impedance (using A & B ) for front are correct...

Panasonic sa-ak630. i turn it on an display said f 61 an turns back off all in a matter of a second or two... wires are all good.. and even just left everything unhooked an still no help... manual said...

F61 is the shorthand for Panasonic machines to mean protect mode. See the link below for a generic explanation of protector. Specifically, in your machine, either the regulator IC has failed or the output amp IC has failed. In any case, the repair will not be cheap. The output IC costs between $75-$125 depending upon the specific IC.

This amp wwhen turned on, dosplays 'PROTECTOR' on teh display, what is this telling me?

Disconnect all the speakers and unplug it for 5 minutes. Then turn it back on without any speakers plugged in. If it doesn't say protector, then you either have a shorted out speaker or wire. The amp is in protection mode which is designed to keep it from burning up. If it still says protection, then it will need to be repaired as it is too late.

STR-DA2000ES, STR-DA3000ES and STR-DA5000ES:

Doument Reference: E23914196
Subject/Description: "Protect 21" is displayed when connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combo

Protect 21 is displayed when connecting to speaker/powered subwoofer combination model such as the SA-VA7000ED. The problem was also found to occur when connected to the Definitive Technology POWER MONITOR 500 and POWER MONITOR 700 series speakers.
The DC detection circuit is triggered when the speakers are connected.
Add a 4.7k metal oxide film resistor across capacitors C1319 and C1329 located on the D-AMP board.

Hope this helps. =)

Keep getting message protector

if all connections and speakers seem ok the problem is internal witch can go from blown power supply to shorted output devices and everything in between , and as always look for repair shop in your area, do not attempt to do it yourself, firehazard and electric shock are the things we all want to avoid ;)

Technics SA-GX470

over load means your speakers and its cable----please check it for bad cable or bad speaker------try to insert speaker one by one and test each time to investigate the bad one.--------if every thing is ok and you keep good ventilation around your receiver (no blocking of ventilation holes)and you still have a problem your protection circuit in your receiver needs to be checked by service technician
