This is a safety feature and it usually suggest that there is a problem with the internal amplifier, it could also be a trapped speaker wire. Remove the radio and check if any of the cables have been damaged and if you power up the radio with the speaker plug disconnected that will tell you if the fault is in the car or the radio

if the power is not turned on (or it is on, but will be off immediately,) the speaker wire may have a short-circuit or touched the chasis of the vehicle and the protection function may have been activated. therefore the speaker wire should be checked. the press the reset button. also it will do that if it gets hotter than 60 degrees celsius or 140 f

Hello ia737,

The "protect" display is probably being caused by a shorted or grounded (touching vehicle chassis or other ground) speaker wire. Check the speaker wires for bare spots, etc and insulate or replace as necessary.

You do not need to remove the fuses to force a "cold reset" of the W-3041. You can simply press the "reset" button on the front of the unit. It's the little recessed button at the lower left of the volume control. Use the straightened end of a paper clip or ballpoint pen to momentarily hold the button in.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: kenwood kdc-438u stuck in protect mode what do i

Disconnect all speaker wires at the receiver and turn it back on. If it does not go into protection, your receiver is ok. Re connect speakers one at a time and test until your receiver goes into protection, then trace the speaker wire to the speaker for cuts or shorts. If you have a multimeter, switch it to ohms and check the speaker for a dead short, you may have a blown speaker. Hope this helps.

I am installing a kenwood cd receiver kdc-mp205 every thing is hooked up but the screen says protect wat is the problem?


Hello.. sorry to hear you are having problems. With the Kenwood car stereos, when they detect a bad speaker in the car, they go into protect mode to keep from burning up the outputs of the stereo. Either you have a bad speaker in the car or a speaker wire that is touching metal (grounded out). You can cut all of the speaker wires loose at the radio and reset the radio. Then turn the radio on and hook each speaker up one at a time until it goes into protect and that will let you know where your problem is located. Hope this helps and good luck with your venture!

My kenwood head deck kdc-mp6036 shows on the screen protect what's wrong with it


Hi,

A "PROTECT" message/display normally indicates a problem with your speaker or your speaker wires. Pls check for any open or shorted (busted speakers) or if any of the wires are touching the chassis/ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
