Question about Sharp XL-DV60 System

"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....

SOURCE: My sharp Stereo is stuck in '' protect'' mode

Protect mode is not something that a reset will fix. Basically it indicates that there is a problem with the final output stage of the amplifier. Normally this indicates that the output transistors are defective. In most boomboxes, the amplifier is a single IC. If you can post the model number, I can provide you with the required part and cost.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: XL-MP60 Shelf System: stereo shuts down and reads protect...

Hello, the problem of you stereo appliances been shut down was as result of a mechanism jam of the system.
The way you could do this is to open the back cover of the appliances and check for the rubber attached to the motor of the appliances, also check and see if you can adjust the mechanism if it is a disorder manner, it require a careful approach.
This will require a skilled personnel to handle this

Shut up stereo protect mode?


Protect mode is on because something in your speaker wiring is wrong, or you have a broken speaker, or it\'s too late and you already fried one or more of the amp\'s output transistors.



You gotta fix the problem. Not remove the safety guard and carry on with a busted machine.



Look for wires touching between the speaker terminals or on the backs of the speakers. If you done a half-ass job of wiring up then this is the most likely cause.



If you can\'t find bad/frayed wiring, then disconnect all the speakers out the back of the amp. Switch the amp on. Does it trip out? If no, that\'s good. Turn up the volume. Is it still okay? If yes, that\'s good. You haven\'t yet killed the output transistors. If it goes in to protect though, ut oh. It\'s Repair Shop Time.



If the amp is okay, then power off and add one speaker. Power on with the volume down. If it trips either at no volume or when you increase the sound, then you got a bad speaker and you just found it. Repeat the process, adding one speaker at a time. Make sure you put Vol to minimum and power off each time before adding the next speaker.

Stereo goes into protect mode


Protect is a safety feature so that you do not blow your speakers. However with it hooked up with the computer you may have surpassed the max output. If it still does this with out going through the computer, it has been damaged.

Protect mode


I own a Sharp DVD Micro System XL=DV60 that began to have a "protect" error message when I crank up the volume. Not sure if this applies to your system, but it could be worth a try. Before you proceed, the solution requires you to open up your system (Do not proceed if the unit is still under warranty :)).  
IF you are not experienced in opening up electronic equipment, I suggest you find somebody who does. The error on my system was caused by the cooling fan being stuck or not able to spin. The system has a sensor or sense circuitry 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 the fan only spins when you crank up the volume. Less or 0 volume will shut down the fan due to it's "energy star" feature. One possible reason why using headphones does not show the error, since headphones require less energy that the main speakers, thus the amplifier IC does not overheat. 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 does not work, I plan to see if I could purchase a replacement motor for the fan...
Again, I have not seen the internal layout of CD-BA2100 and not sure if there is a cooling fan. But then again, it's better than having the "protect" error popping up. :) hope this helps....

Onkyo ts595 goes into protect mode with volume increase


Hold the VCR/DVR button in and press the ON/OFF Standby button. The display should briefly read CLEAR and then the unit switches off. If that clears protect mode, you'll need to redo the Audyssey and configuration setup as these will have been cleared by the reset.

Disconnect your speaker boxes. If the "protect" error goes, then the speakers or wires may be at fault. If the error remains, most likely the audio output IC is blown.
