Just talked to customer service at Sharp because I had same problem with my CD trays getting stuck and would not open even if they had cd's in them. He walked me through resetting the cd system. First have unit plugged in but in standby/off. Then press the open/close button, the stop button and the CD button all at one time(beside holding unit still to keep from sliding) till the display flashes CLEAR ALL and then let go and turn unit on and see if it solves your problem. It solved mine but I did write down instructions to make sure if it happens again I can use it again. Good luck, Helen
One of the most common failures is the actual AC inlet. Have you tried using batteries? If the batteries work, I would guess that either the AC inlet has broken or that one of the connections to the transformer has broken. Either repair is not particulalry expensive. Getting at these parts can be a bit tricky though. Try running on batteries and update this with the results.
Does message disappear when plugged into ac outlet? If it does your batteries are not making a good connection or they are weak. Sometimes old batteries leak and cause contact springs to get corroded, in turn causing bad connection. Clean contact areas with a knife or light sandpaper. That should get you going.
Mines similar, outlets work but radio will only work on battery. Radio will not work on mains only. Charger works at same time so ok. SORTED IT TONIGHT. Inside the charger inside the box there is a fuse (240v 2A) I think, tiny radio fuse. Changed that tonight and radio now works on mains only or battery. Very awkwark job but better than watching a load of cr** on tv. Hope this helps someone.
The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier section. This unit will require repair as a reset will not clear this. There is an audio amp IC inside that needs to be replaced. Figure on about $15 or so for the part.

to adjust the minute, then press PROGRAM/SET. If there is a power failure The
clock loses the setting and is reset to “AM 12:00.” You need to set
the clock again. If the batteries are inserted in the unit, this has no
effect on the memory. To show the clock when CD or tuner is selected Press
Each time you press the button, the display changes the clock indication
and the normal indication alternately. (Operating the unit
while clock indication is displayed change the display to the normal
You will need to ask the dealer to replace the display again I'm afraid. I had a friend that had a similar problem with their Nissan. They had problems with display and the CD 4 times. If you try and do it yourself, that will void the warranty. Good luck
Theres a protruding plastic that pushes the close detection switch inside, the switch might have gotten dirty or reshaped, you can remedy this by adding height to the protruding plastic, or have someone disassemble the unit for you. It can easily be remedied by a technician...
