Re: WIRELESS SPEAKER KIT
That sounds like the transmitter is shorted or faulty. Protection is a diagnostic mode that will prevent the unit from starting because of a fault. Below a little essay on protection mode, but in your case you should simply replace the transmitter. Call the phone number listed on the owner documentation to get a replacement.
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

Check if you receive the error when playing any DVD in particular.
What happens when you take out the DVD and try playing it again? Does it play
This protector error denotes several possible problems. Heat, volume level and incorrect DVD settings may be the cause of the problem. The following steps will help you correct your problem and rid your amp of its "Protector" error.
Examine your volume setting to be certain that your volume knob is not at maximum. Having your volume cranked too high can cause the capacitors to overheat, shutting down the receiver.
Unplug your receiver and disconnect your speakers from the terminals on the back. This will allow you to determine if the error is internal. Plug your receiver back in and look for the same error message. If you continue to get the protector error without having your speakers connected, you may have an internal electrical problem. In this case, contact Sony about finding a repair center.
Reconnect your speakers one at a time. The order of connection doesn't matter. When reconnecting, be sure that you do not have your positive and negative speaker wires crossed in any way. After each connection, test your amp by running it with a source. Give each speaker a few minutes of power before connecting the next one. This will help you isolate which speaker terminal is causing the error. When the protector error returns, take note of which speaker connection caused it. Check this speaker wire for shorts or torn shielding.
Examine your ohm rating of your speakers if you have no shorts or wiring issues. Sony receivers are not compatible with speakers lower than 4 ohms. Connecting a lower ohm-rated speaker will cause an error.
Turn off the surround sound option if you have both your A and B position speakers in use.
Keep your receiver well ventilated. Overheating due to poor ventilation can also cause Protector errors.
Examine the sampling frequency of your connected DVD player. If the error only occurs when you watch a DVD, the sampling frequency of the DVD player may be set too high. Check the sampling rating in your receiver's manual and in the DVD player
PROTECT, PROTECTOR or the letter P is flashing in the display of the A/V receiver.
Follow the steps below to troubleshoot if the word PROTECT or PROTECTOR is flashing on the A/V receivers display.
Reduce the volume level. IMPORTANT: Ifthe receiver is played back at maximum volume level it may enter theprotect mode. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to runvery hot and may drain the output capacitors.
Disable the surround sound option if both the A and B speakers are being used simultaneously.
Ensure the top of the receiver has proper ventilation to keep it from overheating.
If the message only occurs when using a DVD player, the sampling frequency may be set too high. IMPORTANT: Somereceivers provide compatibility with the higher sampling frequenciesthrough alternate connections. Consult the owners manual for specificinformation.
Unplug the AC power cord for about 1 to 2 hours to reset the output transformers.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.
After some research i came with the solution!!! First Turn off the home theater and turn it on again,lower the volume completely. Then on the dvd unit press the fast forward key>>>> while at the same time you press the number 3 on the remote control. A letter p is going to show oh the display. When this is happening there is a small button on the receiver on the back, you might need a thin object to reach the botton and press it. Press it once and the light will change from red to green. To finish up repeat the fast forwar>>>> key on the unit while pressing #3 on the controller and boom!!!!! the w1 will stop flashing and your surround speakers are rocking!!!!! enjoy it!!!!!!
