Try checking your speaker wires for shorts and bare spots. also check to make sure you have no shorted or bad speakers. if they all check out good, you may have a bad output ic.

Radio is stucked in PROTECT MODE


if your radio is in protect mode, you have defective parts in the amplifier section! or other section circuit! maybe you have shorted or leakage parts! like power transistor.. capacitors! thats why your radio is in protect mode!

My jvc stereo is stuck on protected and it won't change the radio station off protected


Radios that are in "protected" mode often indicate a short in a speaker wire or a really bad speaker. Disconnect all eight speaker wires: white, white/black, gray, gray/black, green, green-black, violet, and violet/black. Turn on the radio and see if it still shows "protected". If it does, the radio is defective. If not, connect each pair of speakers back one at a time and see if it goes into protected mode. The one that causes it is the bad wire/speaker.

Got in car this morning and radio was blinking protect


Hi.

Protect mode is a special condition that kicks in when an internal fault has been detected. In protect mode all the unit function are disabled to prevent the stereo getting more damage in consequence of the fault. The state is a forced standby condition that starts when a wrong voltage or a short is detected.

Try disconnecting the battery terminal, pulling the radio out of the dash and checking the wiring at the back of the stereo. Most of the time protect mode is triggered by a wiring contact. If possible check also speaker wiring. A contact in wiring to speakers will trigger protect.

Regards.

How to reset my sony mhc-gs100??? it keep saying power protect...


Your stereo went into protect mode to prevent complete failure of the amplifier inside that radio. Most of the time this happens from playing the stereo real loud for a real long time and it overheats. Most of the time disconnecting the receiver/stereo and letting it cool all the way down or at least 5 minutes and then reconnecting it to the power source will reset the protection mode. You want to make sure you are keeping the radio cool. Don't stack anything on top of it and try keeping a small fan blowing on it to expedite the heat out from the unit. Also turning it down every now and then to let everything cool down a bit will help prevent it from going into protection mode as well.

I have a kenwood it says,kdc-mp142 and all of a sudden it just says protect. it wont do anything


The Kenwood radio will generally give a "PROTECT" error if the amp or receiver is being overloaded. This may mean that some of your wiring may have gotten frayed, one of your speakers isn't putting out the right voltage, or the receiver has decided to go bad. Make sure all of your connections in the back of the radio are solid and not frayed. If that's not the problem, try running each of the speakers one at a time. If one causes the radio to go into protect mode, that's your culprit.
If neither of these are the issue and the radio decides to stay in "protect" mode, your receiver may have seen better days and may need a replacement.

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.

My stereo is flashing the work "PROTECT" across the front


In a Kenwood deck, "PROTECT" usually means that one of the speaker output wires is shorted. The first thing to do is pull the deck and inspect the wiring at the back, making sure there aren't any pinched or exposed wires. If a speaker wire is pinched against the deck chassis, or bare wire is touching dash metal, it can cause your problem. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect all speaker wires from the deck, then turn it on. If it still flashes "protect", then you have a defect in the unit. If not, then re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find the one that causes it to go into Protect mode. Usually if you don't find a pinched or shorted wire behind the radio, the problem can be found at the speaker itself. This is especially common if you've installed after-market speakers; if a speaker terminal connection has come loose and is now touching the speaker basket or mounting surface, it will shut down the deck.
