Anytime there is a short circuit or your battery down low enough you will recieve this signal. If you press the little "reset button" using a small pin or screwdriver your unit should reboot without the "PROTECT" signal. If seeing this "PROTECT" sign is a result of jumping your car, this will fix it. If the signal persists, then there is still a short circuit and you need to check your connection with the battery. Most likely it is touching the chasis or some othere metal.

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and turn it back on. If it does not go into protection, your receiver is ok. Re connect speakers one at a time and test until your receiver goes into protection, then trace the speaker wire to the speaker for cuts or shorts. If you have a multimeter, switch it to ohms and check the speaker for a dead short, you may have a blown speaker. Hope this helps.

Protect indicates that there is a short or a grounding problem usually within the speakers or the speaker wiring. Locate and press the reset button (pinhole). If protect comes back then disconnect all speakers, reset and connect them back one at a time until protect shows up again. This will help you find out where the unwanted DC signal is coming from. If protect shows up when all speakers are disconnected, then it may need service.
