To my knowledge, some Kenwood head units have a wire specifically for this purpose, to mute the stereo in the event of an incoming mobile call. This would be the brown wire. Normally when not connected to a mobile phone, this wire is shielded/covered. It it was inadvertently exposed and touches any metal part, then it would enable the muting. If the wire is covered and not grounding, then an internal fault exists and most likely the trigger inside where the brown wire leads to.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.
You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.
Hope this helps.

behind the face plate there is a little recessed reset button. push it using the tip of a pen or similar. that will fully reset the radio to like it was when you bought it.
Some times head units hicup. this is how you reset it. In most error cases this solves the problem.
