The stand by button blinks. i pressed the stop button for 5 seconds to stop the blinking, put the power back on, results are still the same, displaying protection and then the unit shuts down.

Hi,

Take every single cable out of the unit, now power on the unit.

If the power protection still shows then there is an internal fault, usually a short or a component defect.

If it powers on ok, switch off and insert 1 speaker at a time and power on the unit until the protection mode comes on again, the last speaker you have put in has overloaded it for some reason, also as you are trying each speaker use the volume and bass controls to see if there is an internal overload.

Thats as much as I can offer you until you narrow the fault down to the unit or one of the speakers.

Cheers

My kindle fire will not operate. After powering up, the unit only displays the front page and I cannot get anything else on the unit.


Try rebooting. Press and hold the power button, ignoring the "Shut down" prompt until the unit turns off. Release and then press the power button for a second or two until it starts rebooting.

If that doesn't work, please repost your question, including what happens (or not happens) after the reboot.

Power problem


If the protect function works but is causing you problems, cancelling the protection function should help, and it will be possible to enter the self-diagnostic function mode. This should disable all functions of the protection mode, excluding the 'excess electrical current detection' feature.

While pressing the "Tone Control" and "Info" keys, try pressing the power key to turn on the power. Keep pressing those 2 keys for 3 seconds longer.

this should activate the Self Diagnostic function, with your Protection Mode disabled.

in this mode the 'sleep' section on the tv's fluorescent display flashes to indicate that the mode is properly activated.

just be very aware, this function is normally there as a safety feature and i cant guarantee that disabling it altogether won't cause other problems down the road. best of luck!

Led display shut down when the detector detect an alert


You have the unit in dark mode. Press the Dim/Dark button again to get the unit to full brightness. THe unit has 3 levels of DIM. First the unit is at its full brightness, pressing the dim/dark button will dim the display and the unit functions normally. Press the Dim/Dark button again will futher darken the display but when the unit alarms the display is turned off and remain off during the alert. After the alert is over the unit waits 20 seconds of no alert to turn the display back on.

Your receiver probably went into protect mode because you were overloading the output stage with concert blast. In some units, protection consists of fuses that blow; in others protection is provided by thermal shutdown devices.

How to set clock clok tcr368


Setting the CLOK TCR368 is done by having the unit:
Turned OFF - The power button is located at the top left face of the unit.
Press and hold the CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button for at least 4 seconds. (It is located to the right of the power button at the upper left corner of the unit.) Do not let go of the button.
While holding down the CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button, press the HOUR and MINUTE buttons to the correct time.
Release thethe CLOCK/DISPLAY/PLAY/PAUSE button.

The backup battery is to keep the clok circuit running in case of a power failure and can't be used to power the radio.

With the unit OFF, press and hold the FUNCTION button (located between the ipod slot and the snooze button) for at least 2 seconds. The display will flash either 12 hour or 24 hour depending what mode it is in.
Release the FUNCTION button and press it once to change the mode.
Press again to cycle between the 12 hour and 24 hour mode.
When the display indicates the mode you prefer, simply wait 2 seconds for the clock to go into that mode without pressing anything.

Protection displayed and shuts off


The protect message indicates that the output amp section has a problem. Normally this requires the replacement of the output transistors or the output amp pac. Expect the repair cost to be about $20-$60 for parts plus the local labor rate.

are all the speakers good?? discont all the speakers and see if all the lites come on. Then shut off and start to connect one at a time untill the unit shuts down and then you know you have a shorted speaker. If the same thing happens you probably have a power supply or an output stage falure and this should be serviced by someone who is quilified to work on stereos
