Question about Sharp XL-DV60 System

Open Question

"Protect" feature on SHARP XL-DV60 Stereo System

After reaching a certain volume, (usually anything after 15 out of 30) the stereo goes into "Protect" mode, where the screen reads PROTECT and shuts off, every single time. I would assume this is either an overloading issue or an energy issue, as this is a product that follows energystar standards. what would be the best way to solve this issue, as I usually set the volume to 20-25? I've set the volume up to 30 maybe once or twice and that didn't last very long, just to see how it played at the top volume.

    same problem... goes into protect mode when the volume is above 15 to 20 depending on the disc used. Very Annoying!

  • zona17ja Aug 10, 2008

    For me it is that whenever I put in a CD to play after it reaches 1 minute and a few seconds it goes into this PROTECT mode and I can't seem to get it to work.

    I have the same problem. Im to the point that Im going to throw this thing away!! There are clearly no known solutions. Junk!!

  • pjwebb Sep 24, 2008

    I have same system and have it hooked up to receive audio from my tv. For the past several days it does not matter what volume I have it on, it goes immediately into PROTECT. I am going crazy because my tv has a bad speaker. It's just a real piece of garbage all the way around. Another problem I have with it is that sometimes some of the cd's don't play, then next time around they do. (???) ARGGGG.

    I just emailed Sharp about the overload problem so I'll have to see how they respond.

this is a common problem with this unit the main thing is a low grade capcitor that the manufacturers used which is known to discharge all of its power at once which it recieves a high signal output and tells the unit to shut down the solution is very technical but basiclly you gave to install a higher amp capacitor.

Sharp DVD Micro Theater System XL-DV60 solution Posted by sonny.marquez on Nov 21st, 2008 at 11:46pm

I own a similar system that began to have a "protect" error message when I crank up the volume. Before you proceed, the solution requires you to open up your system by removing the top cover via removal of five screws and opening it up. So IF you are not experienced in opening up electronic equipment I suggest you find somebody who does. The error is caused by the cooling fan being stuck or not able to spin. The system has a sensor wherein, when it detects that the "amplifier" IC heats up, it spins up the fan to cool it down. IF the system detects that the fan is not spinning during the cooling phase, it will give out the "protect" message. Note that it will only spin when you crank up the volume. Less or 0 volume will shut down the fan due to it's "energy star" feature.

To solve the problem, I cleaned out the dust in the system via a 1 inch wide paint brush (haven't tried the compressed bottled air used to clean computers BUT it might do) and nudged the fan. Played the system w/o a cover and observed the fan operation and so far it has solved the issue. I plan to lubricate the fan shaft with very small amount(less than a drop) of machine oil using a syringe. If it doe not work, I plan to see if I could purchase a replacement motor for the fan...

hope this helps....

My stereo keeps turning off when I listen to a station 101.5 in New Jersey


The only thing that can be is that you have set a timer "sleep" function for that station. I have looked at the manual and it states you can programme a sleep setting for a radio station.
The instructions are on page 12. But I have extracted them below:

1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.

2 Press and hold the CLOCK/TIMER button.

3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button

to select "ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY

button. Set the clock to the correct time if "ONCE" or

"DAILY" does not appear.

4 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select

"ONCE SET" or "DAILY SET", and press the MEMORY

button.

5 To adjust the hour, press the or button and then

press the MEMORY button.

6 To adjust the minutes, press the or button and

then press the MEMORY button.

7 Set the time to fi nish as in steps 5 and 6 above.

8 To select the timer playback source (CD, TUNER, USB,

iPhone/iPod, TAPE or AUDIO IN), press the or

button. Press the MEMORY button.

When you select the tuner, select a station by pressing

the or button, and then press the MEMORY

button. If a station has not been programmed, "NO

PRESET" will be displayed and timer setting will be

canceled.

9 Adjust the volume using the VOLUME control, and then

press the MEMORY button. Do not turn the volume up

too high.

10 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power

stand-by mode. The "TIMER" indicator lights up and

the unit is ready for timer playback.


11 When the preset time is reached, playback will start.





The volume will increase gradually until it reaches the

preset volume. The "?" or "DAILY" indicator will blink

during timer playback.

12 When the timer end time is reached, the system will

enter the power stand-by mode automatically.

Once timer:

The timer will be canceled.

Daily timer:

The timer operates at the same time every day. It

will continue until the daily timer setting is canceled.
Cancel the daily timer when it is not in use.

Sounds like unit is in protect mode. This is usually caused by a problem in the amplifier section. Only way to fix is to replace the main board - hope it's under warranty, otherwise it's probably not worth fixing

No sound thru pioneer equaliser from quatrron tv


There are two way to do this.
1. Connect all your devices individually to the Pioneer receiver. Doing this allows you so have different sound settings for each input. A reason you might want this is that your DVD will need a DTS or Dolby sound setting so that you get the best audio from your DVD, whereas your TV may only be outputting stereo audio. In this case you would set your Pioneer to a stereo setting.
2. Connect your devices to the Sharp display, then connect the audio output of the Sharp to a free audio input on the Pioneer.
Your Sharp LED TV has two ways to do this: a. If you have a digital capable Pioneer sound system, connect using the "Digital Audio Output". You will need a Toslink (Optical) cable for this connection. b. If you only have analog capabilities in your Pioneer sound system, you must use the 3.5mm (1/8 Inch) analog audio output from the Sharp TV to stereo RCA (red and white plugs that are most commonly supplied with home theatre product).

Unit wii turn off will show message protrection on


Your system has a safety switch off due to a failure in one of the sections. The fault can be anywhere in the output or the power. You will need to switch off and test the output section with the aid of a multimeter for shorting. Check if your speakers also had shorted. If so remove and test. Next the fault can be the sub power or the section of the protect circuit. Use a test in this section but do this only if your are competant. Otherwise get help with this advice. Good day

Aiwa stereo system keeps shutting off when i turn the volume up... can anyone help


Sounds like system overload, Your stereo system has a protect on the amp to keep it from overload, so if it is shutting off you may need to unhook all your speakers, check all of you positive and neg wires and make sure all reds and blacks go to the right spot. Try lowering the bass and check to see if a certain speaker is the cause you may have two wires crossed. This is normal for some newer amps, They used to put fuses in these amps now it has a protector built in to make sure you don't blow out your channels. You may have a blown speaker in the mix that is causing this also you can try using crossovers on all your speakers.
