Kenwood XD-A5 - "protection" shut off feature

Hello,

I have an old Kenwood system. It was been working perfectly for a few months. After I moved it to a new location, it began shutting itself off when I turned the volume past a certain point. The word "protection" flashes on the screen when this happens, and I have to turn the system off and start it again. I believe it is because I accidentally hit a switch during the move.

Can you please instruct on how to turn this feature off?

Thank you,
Mark Wolf

This is a safety feature and can not be shut off. The system is detecting a problem in the last output stage of the amplifier and is shutting down to prevent further damage. I suspect a bad coupling capacitor in the pre-amp stage. This is a relatively simple repair for an experienced servicer. Figure on $10 or so for parts plus the local labor rate.

Sharp Stereo- Protect Mode??


Try plugging in a pair of headphones. I tried it without the speakers connected and since it found the headphones and they were OK the system came out of protect mode.
