Works, but goes into protect when you turn up/down volume
I'm confused, I got it for free, and it worked fine for the first 15 - 20 minutes, then I turned the volume up, and then back down, and when I started turning it down, it went into protect, at first I thought maybe it was overheating, but I turned it right back on and left it at 18/30 volume for 20 minutes, and nothing happened, and as soon as I started turning to volume down, it went back into protect mode, even when I turn it down with a remote, it goes into protect, but as long as you don't touch the volume, it stays on and works for hours... Also, alot of the buttons are weird, if you press the bass boost button, sometimes it will act like the mute button has been pressed, and the left button above the jog wheel acts like the Mode button, etc... So, anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

It could be that the amp's overload protection circuit is being triggered by a
feedback loop or other problem, such as a shorted or bad cable
connection. Turn off the power and unplug the receiver. Look for
problems, starting with shorted speaker wires or cables. Then make sure
the receiver's not still hot (wait 5-10 minutes to let it cool), and
remove obstructions or anything blocking the top vents. Plug it back
in and power up again. Immediately change the Source selector to
something unconnected, and turn the Volume DOWN just in case there's a
feedback loop (hum/squeal/noise that can overload things and cause the
protection circuit to trip again). If you can see the display, go to a
low level (around -50dB should be fine) before the delayed speaker amp
output clicks on. Then carefully switch back to the problem source --
if that's the problem, switch off again immediately and re-check all of
the cable connections at both ends, the receiver and the source
component. Make sure you don't have a feedback loop due to a
recording device feeding back a signal. All VCRs and CD/DVD-recorders
should be hooked up to the VCR, DVR or TAPE/CD-R "IN/OUT" jacks with IN
being connected to the cables marked OUT on the deck and vice versa.
(That confuses even us experienced guys sometimes!) Also, no MONITOR
video or audio outputs should be connected to the recording decks, nor
should the TV outputs be fed back to the recorders. The same goes for
the digital IN/OUT jacks for CD recorders; use only the same number IN
as OUT for each component (For example, Optical IN/OUT #4 and #5 are the two digital
IN/OUT pairs on the Denon AVR-380X series.)
most of the receivers come with a cooling fan inside see if its working they usually work when you turn the volume up,, if its working that means you are playing it to loud if you lower the volume a little it will play just fine..( if the fan inside is not working thats the reason it goes into protect mode and it means you must have it repaired,, it goes into protect mode to prevent furter damage to the unit or the speakers,,
Either there is a bad capacitor in the protection unit or you can find the wire that goes from volume control to protection unit and unplug it. You can also try turning the volume all the way off before turning on, then slowly turn up from there
Unfortunately, it sounds as if the encoder is broken. The encoder is a digital input which takes the place of a traditional volume control, and is what holds the volume knob in place and spins. Since it works fine with the remote, that means everything else is ok, but you will have to replace, or have a tech replace, the encoder itself.
hi, the problem of your receiver is in the amplifier section the idle current is not working that is why the volume fades and the protection relay click to avoid further trouble of your receiver,you need repair technician to solve your problem.
This is a piece of **** unit. Mine only works on the left side, sometimes. When those times are I have NO idea. It doesn't seem to play 5.1 correctly and it goes into speaker protect mode for NO reason. It is TRUE lemon !!! ..let me know if you have any other problems with this JUNK .....firstname.lastname@example.org
protection mode activated to protect from serious damage and please follow me.1-shut down your system2-make volume in low position3-remove all your connected speaker4-switch your system on and watch if it does not go to protect mode insert your speaker one by one until you find the bad one and change it and start with cable change first and then speaker itself-if it goes to protect mode you must call service center.
Your complaint isn't a problem at all. This is a usual characteristic of the relevant amplifier. The protection mode comes on when the main volume/bass/treble or whatever is too loud. Unfotunately, you can not overcome it. But, as they always say: It's a Sony:)
