Protection mode happens when a problem is detected in the final stage of the amplifier. The unit shuts down to prevent further damage. Usually this is because one or more of the output transistors has failed. The typical repair cost will be between $20-$40 for parts plus the local labor rate.

Receiver displays "protect" ...then shuts off


From what I have seen..........

Either you have a speaker that is shorting out, Try unplugging on speaker at a time and turning the unit on, and see if it goes out of protected mode. Keep the volume turned low while doing that. Just go by process of elimination. Or you can disconnect all speakers and see if you still get the error message. If not then connect 1 speaker at a time, if it goes in to protected mode while doing a speaker connection then you found the bad speaker.

Otherwise another thing I read a hard reset you should be able to do on the unit is hold down the power button until it display a message that says "Clear All", then hit enter or follow the directions it gives that should reset the alarm code if the receiver will allow it.

Hopefully one of those 2 things will clear your error........

Best I could find out

I would do the speaker test first, usually its a shorted speaker or wire

When playing dvd or or on video 3 playing a directv movie. Receiver keeps shutting off and the screen says protect. Seems to do it when the movie scene gets loud.


check your wires if there not touching behind the speakers and receiver. when it says protect this means something is shorting out or crossing over. one other thing it may be is if a speaker is starting to go bad. (please rate)

When I turn on the player...the "PROTECT" message comes up... I would like to know how to start this player...or how to bypass this message so it pplays. Hope somebody out there knows the...


protect means that the speakers are improperly hooked up or just not compatible with the amp.

ensure that the speakers are 8-16 ohms, that no wires are crossed, and no wire strands are loose, which could touch and short. a 4 ohm speaker or a short in the wiring is almost always the cause of a protect error.

if all of this is checked, and it still says "protect" then it is fried.

PROTECT MESSAGE


It senses an error or problem and shuts down. Try disconnecting all the cables and wires attached to it. Try it again. If it still shows protect message, it is an internal fault and requires a repair shop. If it clears up, then the problem may be a shorted speaker wire. Correct the short when reconnecting the speakers.

"protect" error


You more than likely have a problem with your power supply. Home theater receivers have many different watchdog or protection circuits. If the power supply is not output the correct voltage or is shorted that will trigger a fault. You could also have an overload condition on the output stage. Too much current drawn by the amplifier will trigger a fault.

Protection error in denon avr-3000


Hi,

Do you know what caused the protection shut down in the first place? Did you short your speaker wires even briefly?

You could try to Unplug the Unit for Few Minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn it back ON.Usually that would fix the issue.

If you are going into protect mode with no speaker attached,chances are that your output Ic is in need of replacement .This is the most likely cause of a protection error that you are experiencing.I am having a bit of difficulty in locating specific part numbers but feel confident that replacing outputs will remedy your concern.For further info and parts or authorized service locations in your area I suggest to contact mfg at www.usa.denon.com/ .Click on support or call(201)762-6500.I believe that they have a flat rate service and will give you an estimate.

Still, on the remote possibility that it is just a glitch caused by momentary power interruption or fluctuation, try to re-initialize the microprocessor, a hard reset (not unless this is what you were referring to as rebooted). The reset should force the AVR-3300 to revert back to factory defaults removing glitches, errors in settings & configurations, memory & presets as well as user preferences.

* turn OFF the unit using the POWER button;
* press and hold both SPEAKER A and SPEAKER B;
* without releasing the 2 buttons, press the POWER button;
* release the 2 buttons only when the display starts to flash;
* in the event of no display flashing, repeat the process.


Should the above be not corrective, then it would be a hardware fault and not just a glitch.


Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hoe i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Power will not stay on


Activated protection circuitry means that the amplifier is seeing conditions it does not like and is shutting down the power to prevent further damage.
Either you have a short in your speaker wires, in your speakers, or a blown amplifier.
Disconnect both speakers and turn on the amplifier. Does it still give the error message? If it does, your amp is blown. If it does not, carefully inspect your speaker wires and their connection. Make sure all looks good and reconnect the speakers and try it again. Still get the error message? You likely have a problem in your speaker cabinet(s).

Protect error on agv8500


Hi there. I have the same unit. A darn nice piece of hardware. A couple of months back I noticed my cooling fan making noise. A few days ago I got the "PROTECT" message and the unit wouldn't power up. I turned it off for three days and it started playing again. Now I'm pretty sure it went into protect mode because it overheated. I just tried finding a Teac replacement fan and didn't see one on the web. My solution will be to adapt a small computer-type fan onto it to keep things cool. It works too well to let it die! Good Luck, Gborchers. GROGSTER

Says protect


Probably some speaker wires got shorted or the output stages freaked out and the cpu went into protect mode. Normally plugging it out of and in to the wall socket should/could reset it.

First check all wiring at the speaker outputs and on the speakers
then if it still wont startup you could try the avr-1500 method with
some trial and error pressing of buttons.

avr-1500 reset method:
Unplug the unit from the wall, hold down both video select and audio select at the same time, plug it back in. Keep holding both buttons for 2 secs, unit will reboot. As you have no audio select button on your avr-1100 you might try pressing video select and another key to see if this will reboot it.
