If it is a JVC you can disconnect the power supply by battery or unplugging harness for about five minutes... this is not going to fix your problem but it should get your radio to play. How many speakers are attached??? What are the ohms of the speakers?? If you are unsure post what you know (Brand, watts, ext.). If factory let us know what kind of vehical make, model, and year. Most car stereos are only designed to handle 4 speakers 6 to 10 ohms.

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.

My Harmon kardon is stuck in protect mode


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. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

When i switch on my samsung HT-Z110 the word hello appears then protect thenit turned off!


Audio receivers have an output protection circuit called "protect mode", this is to protect the receiver from short circuit failures.The speakers and speaker wires are what I inspect thoroughly first, look for bare speaker wires,or bare wires that are touching each other at that point,check speaker wires at the back of the receiver for sloppy connections,etc.If all looks good then try disconnecting all the speakers at the receiver,then turn power on to see if it goes into "protect mode", if it does the the receiver probably has an internal short and will need to be sent in for service,if it doesn't go into "protect mode" then connect one speaker at a time back into the receiver until it does go into "protect mode" then which ever speaker you connected last is the speaker that is shorted(blown) and then you know that speaker is the problem and it will need to be replaced or repaired. Good luck !

I have a new house that had speakers built into the cieling. I bought an onkyo to push all eight speakers. the reciever went into protect mode. i had an old reciever and hooked four speakers to the onkyo...


you can check them with a ohm meter, hook it to the wires that you hook to the reciever and if you get a reading it is good if no reading it is bad wires

How can I get it out of protect mode?


Protect mode indicates a short in the speaker wiring or a faulty speaker. Just disconnect speakers one at a time to determine which is the issue, then swap that speaker with a known good speaker from a different location (other side of car). If the headunit goes back in to protect mode when a known good speaker is connected, you know that the short is in the speaker wiring between the speaker and the deck. If the warning does not come back you know that the speaker is at fault, replace it. In most cases it is the speaker rather than the wiring. Good luck, should be an easy fix if you're familiar with car audio installation, if not, find a friend who will help you, it's not worth paying an audio shop $40 just to unplug your speaker.

No audio and staying in protect mode


You have no audio because it's in protect mode, could have a short in the speaker connections or one of the speakers - try it with speaker wires disconnected at the amp and also with a different pair of known good 16 ohm speakers. If the protect mode light doesn't go out then you may have cooked a driver and it will need to go to a shop.

My amp automatically goes into protect mode


There are 4 reasons an amplifier tries to protect itself.

Overheating - thermal shutdown.

Over Impedence - The subwoofers installed are not configured into a load the amplifier can handle.

Output is grounded - a positive wire strand may be touching the ground terminal - a wire may be shorted, or a speaker voicecoil is blown.

Intennal problem - Output on amplifier blown, or some other component has failed.

Check your wiring to the amplifier again - if all is good - disconnect the speakers and try to power on. If the amplifier turns on normally - test the speakers for blown coils.

If the amplifier still goes into protect mode - the problem is internal and needs professional repair.

Getting my amplifier out of protect mode



There is a problem with one or both of the audio amplification circuits. The amp is going into "protect mode" to protect your speakers. I'm afraid there is no simple fix. this will need to go to the shop to be repaired...

...unless you have been tinkering with the speaker connections recently. In which case, make sure all connections are sound & there are no wires touching other wires. This causes a short circuit. Leave it disconnected from the mains overnight. There's a slim chance it might spring back to life tomorrow.

Good luck & let me know how you get on.
