Re: It blinks PROTECTOR
This means that the unit detected a problem and shut itself down to prevent further damage. The normal cuase of this is a defective transistor in the final amplifier stage. Figure on $15-$35 for parts plus the local labor rate for the total repair.

Lacking specific connection details. Check the cables, settings (digital vs analog) and assignment of the digital input that accepts the unidentified DVD player. Check the settings within the DVD player. SWAP the DVD player's cable to another input and see what happens.
So the speakers and the individual amp channels work so that lets out the obvious big hardware items.
This is starting to sound like an obscure setting was set or changed by mistake.
It would be nice to figure out what that is/was in case it happens again but you may eventually have to resort to resetting the receiver to factory defaults and start over by holding the1/0 button for 5 seconds.
Hi...1st off ...make sure all the speakers are connected at both ends. 2nd..buy a new cat..one that doesnt drool. If it's still stays in Stdby after checking speakers, It might have blown an internal fuse cause thats where those darn stereo people put them now.
The clicking might have been the speaker relay attempting to engage. Measure any DC on the output transistors. You should see (B+/-,0.0 and +/- 0/6V). Anything else and the protection circuit will kick in. Update this with the measurements and we'll go from there. Note that this unmit may have darlingtons in it in which case the +/- 0.6 will be +/- 1.1
This message indicates that a problem was detected in the amp. In order to prevent any further damage to the amp or the speakers, the outputs are turned off. Does the receiver show this at all times now?
hi i also have JVC with same problem. but today i noticed that when i take off the AUX input signal to it .then it works ok for long but when i put AUX input with very high volume then it display PROTECT display.
