Protect mode will kicking whenever a fault is detected.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

The DVD player will stop playing and the message


It is possible that your system is gettting overloaded and makes the sfety cicuit switch off . This is the protecction circuit to prevent further damage and fire within the system particularity when the output or power is shorted. Check from the speakers for short remove and test . Also use a multimeter to test for short in the output drive. If so disconnect and see if the protect releases. Then you must replace the outputs. Check also the protect cicuit for a false alarrm due to wrong biasing. Hope this advice helps to figure out. Good day

It turns of by itself, said something about fan then turns off.


It is going into PROTECTION mode because of a failing fan. Take the fan to Radio Shack and match it up.

Cannot play DVD's or CD's at all!


Wow, doesnt sound good. My only thought is that on new devices they often have tape and cardboard inserts to protect the device for shipping. Make sure there isnt any tape or packing material stuck somewhere in the device. Otherwise it must just be a bad player. They shouldnt have any problems exchanging it since you just got it. Good luck!
