Question about Kenwood Audio & Video Receivers
You have an amp failure, this can be a problem with a speaker but is more often a shorted output channel.
You can check to see if it is a speaker by disconnecting the speakers and then turn it on. If it goes into protect again, you have a shorted output channel. If it turns on, you may have a bad speaker.
If it turns on, try connecting one speaker at a time until it goes back into protect. When it goes into protect, you just found your bad speaker (last one connected).
Make sure you turn it off before connecting a speaker. Then turn it back on again. Do this for every speaker you have.
If it stays in protect, you should take it in for service. Unless you have the proper tools and experience working on electronics there is nothing you can do to repair this yourself. I have seen many people try who were not qualified to work on electronics, and more often than not, they cause more damage than they started with which results in a more costly repair.
Let me know if you need any more help.
