Question about Samsung Audio Players & Recorders
Protect is an error code for short and overload. To isolate where the fault came from use only the DVD player(built-in) while disconnected all inputs(PS3, TV etc.). If the symptom didn't appear, high chance that it came from bad cable connectors from your inputs. You have to change the inputs with a new cables, old cable may have an internal shorts due to frequent bending or pulling which trigger the protect error code.
If the symptom still there after disconnecting the inputs from the unit, disconnect now the speaker while playing again the unit(play it without the speaker's connected). If the symptom didn't appear, the trouble is in the speaker loaded to the unit. You have to isolate them one-by-one by connecting it one at a time. Note : turn off the unit before connecting the speakers.
If the symptom still there, the fault is in the unit itself. This is caused by either faulty power supply which is gone to out-of regulation due to faulty parts(mostly the electrolytic capacitor) or the audio Output circuitry. This is quite technical and need to check by a qualified technician, I would advice you to send it to repair shop to troubleshoot the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
