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.

Hi,
f61 is a protection code. it means theres is a fault with audio output ic, usually there is dc on one of the speaker output rails, replacing the audio output ic will usually cure this but check speakers and leads for shorts before reconnecting to the unit.


Thank You

Everytime i turn my pioneer stereo system on, it turns off and the red l.e.d light flashes. if i turn it off at the mains, occasionaly it will turn on and stay on but not very often.


Sounds like it is going into the protection mode. Probably because of a problem in one or both of the output channels. It may be time to see a repair guy. Good luck.

Protect


The protect message indicates that a problem has been detected in the final output stage of the amplifier. The most common failure parts are the output transistors. Plan on a parts cost between $15-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Protection mode?


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check your connections. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. protection-mode-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

Can't do anything - LCD screen says "PROTECT"


It may be that there is a problem with a fuse inside the stereo. It may say protect because the fuse has broken a connection that allows it to turn on. If the protect goe sup it is trying to help save the stereo from cooking its self, and give you a chance to get it fixed. If that is not the problem then it may be easier to just buy a new one, because a fix may be expensive if you don't have any warranties.
