Question about Audio Shelf Systems
When the product is switched on the word "Protect" flashes on and off on the display and neither CD player nor receiver will work
Tips for a great answer:
From the link...
PROTECT, PROTECTOR or the letter P is flashing in the display of the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver.
If PROTECT , PROTECTOR or a P is flashing in the display of the A/V receiver, there may be an incorrect connection or an improper setting. Try following these steps to resolve this issue:
IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is needed to complete any of these steps, refer to the instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the A/V receiver status after completing each step.
Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.
You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.
If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.
If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.
