Hi,
Check the speaker in you car which are connected to you head unit. if the speaker or the wire which runs to the speakers have some problem then the head unit will show protect.
Also one more possibility is, the faulty output amplifier IC in the head unit. if the audio out put IC is short or fail then also the unit will show the same. Audio output Ic means the audio amplifier. Check the speaker and wire first. Mainly the wire check is there is any insulation damage in it. if the insulation get damaged possibility to get contact with the metal part of the body of the car then also the protect will appear.
ok

My Kenwood KDC-U453 cd receiver displays "PROTECT" on connection and nothing works - any solutions appreciated!!!!


Pull the radio out, tape off all wires but yellow, red and black. Twist red/ yellow together and attach to positive 12 volt, attach black wire to negative 12 volts. Turn on radio and see if it comes out of protect mode. If it does, you will have to troubleshoot all of the speaker wires to find a short.

Kenwood cd player keeps flashing "protect" when i turn it on. How do i fix this?


The "Protect" message indicates that the unit has detected a short or surge in the wiring to the unit. Check your ground and make sure that the speaker wires are not the problem. (Any broken wires or speaker wires that touch the case of the CD player could cause the issue.)

If there are no obvious wiring problems, then the unit has an internal short. That should be resolved by sending the unit for service if it is under warranty.

Please add a comment with the model number of the CD player for additional information. I hope this helps.

KDC-MP4032 head unit wont turn on


hi, seeing that your kenwood showed up "protect" you may have an audio circuit/amplifier fault within the unit. try resetting the unit to see if unit comes "on" again. if the unit comes on and protect flashes again, then you definitely have an internal audio circuit fault. if not then check all power connections(yellow and red wire voltages, as well as ground connection), as well as the condition of the face pins!

Kenwood KDC-MP342U turns on but just keeps saying "reading" when in usb mode. I recently had it go into protect mode and I took the stereo out and checked the wires and re-attached the ones that...


it sounds like the USB connector on the face place of the radio has a cracked solder joint. i suggest taking it to a person that know how to solder small objects. your Kenwood has a one year manufacturer warranty it could be some thing to check in to.

Protect. Flashing. On my kdc x595 just installed and yes all wires r connected correctly


Understand your addition that ALL connections OK but is that the head unit end?
Added this for you anyway and hope it helps, I would check this first and if all is OK, suspect a faulty head unit? (It does happen).
"PROTECT" :- The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle, and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center. Good luck with it

MY KENWOOD CAR CD PLAYER IS SAYING PROTECT??


Hi,

Kenwood head units show "protect" when there's a problem with the speaker outputs. This might mean a shorted speaker wire, a blown speaker, or an internal defect in the head unit. Once the condition that's causing the "protect" mode is fixed, the CD player should be back in normal mode the next time you turn it on.

If it's staying in "protect", then you'll definitely have to remove the stereo and do some troubleshooting to fix it. Many car audio stores will do system troubleshooting, for a fee. If you want to do it yourself, here's what you need to do:

Pull the Kenwood unit from the dash and disconnect all the speaker wires. Turn it on and see if the "protect" message displays. If it does, the stereo has an internal defect and will need to be serviced. If it doesn't, then turn it off, and re-connect one speaker. Turn it on again and see if it displays "protect".

If it works with a single speaker connected, keep re-connecting the others until you identify the speaker that's causing the problem. There may be a wiring problem or defective speaker in that location.

If it displays "protect" with a single speaker connected, then disconnect that one and try a different one. If all the speakers cause a "protect" mode, then you're probably back to a defective head unit, unless your friend managed to blow all your speakers at once.

Thanks,
