Keeps going o protect how do i stop ths?

First, if you can, try checking all of your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and or grounds. If the speakers and wires check out fine, try resetting the radio. This can be done by pressing the reset switch, which is either an unmarked depression about the size of a pencil tip on either the face or the subpanel behind the face. If there is no reset switch, you can reset the radio by disconnecting the car battery for a few seconds. If the radio still stays in protect, you may have a bad output IC.

If no power and have replaced protect diode--check voltage 12 volts from source thru inline fuse, to inside radio up to the switch---if power (rear two lugs of switch) on one side but not the other with turned on--bad switch is possible.

Flashing protect code to unlock

There is no code to unlock it when your radio goes into protect. First check all of your speakers and speaker wires for shorts and/or grounds if you can. If they check out good try resetting the radio. If there is a reset switch, it will be a small pencil tipped depression on the face, or a small hole behind the face with a switch behind it on the sub assembly. If there is no switch, you can reset it by disconnecting the battery for a few seconds. If that doesn't work, you may have a bad output ic or volume control ic.

My built in Whirlpool oven is locked and it will not let me unlock it, it is showing an E1 F5 error. I have tried unhooking it from the power source and a few other troubleshooting tips I found off the...

I unplugged the range from the wall and using my meter, did a continuity check of the latch position switch (the one on the right). The switch was reading as an open circuit in standby and when I actuated the switch which tells me the switch has failed. The second switch on the latch assembly, by the way, is to turn the oven light off during the self cleaning cycle to protect the bulb. That way, if you leave the light switch on the control panel turned to the on position, that second switch will turn it back off. Good to know if you can't figure out why the oven light won't turn on.

I cant take pictures or videos since it says write protect on the screen. How do i fix this?

Take a look athe SD card in the camera to see if the little slide switch on the left side is down. That is the write protect switch of the SD card to prevent you from over writing data/pictures or formatting the memory device accidently. push the switch up and try again.

Replacing a switch

If you do not have a voltmeter how do you know that you have the power disconnected? Voltmeters are very inexpensive and easy to use, Radio Shack has some cheap ones. Protect your self Pleazzz.

that said if you changed the switch, checked the bulb, and still don't have lights then check breaker to see if it is tripped

Flashing PROTECT

This is often caused by a problem with the speakers or speaker wiring. A speaker wire that's pinched behind the head unit will cause this problem if it's shorted to dash metal or the deck chassis. The first thing to do is remove the head unit and inspect all the speaker wiring for bare spots or pinched spots. If everything looks okay, disconnect all four speakers from the deck and switch it on. If it still shows "protect" then you have a defective head unit. If not, then turn it off, re-connect one of the speakers, and turn it on again. Continue until you find the speaker output that puts the deck into protect mode.

Amplifier/receiver switches off systematically after a few second of use

Sounds like a bad output channel is causing it to go into protect mode. Time to see a repair tech.
