Question about Sony STR-DE485 Receiver
When a 'loud' part of the DVD is playing or the volume gets turn up the sound stops and the display says 'Protect'. This only happens when playing a DVD and seems to happen when there is a 'spike' in the volume.
I also had a problem on my STR-DB930 where protect mode only occurred in loud sequences on DVDs. It ended up being a short in one of the surround speaker cables which only was significant enough to cause a PROTECT mode when loud signals were sent to the speakers. Woerht checking the speaker cables by taking them off and reattaching them one at a time to check if any of them are shorting out.

This happens less often in "normal surround" mode
