Need nore help with Protect light

I've read the other posts and i'm not sure they are answering my questions about the protect light. i wired my amp, it played fine for about two hours. then it stopped. i think that was due to over heating. now, when i turned it back on the next day it will play only at low power output from my radio...if i turn the radio up past 27 (0-62) the protect light turns on and the power light turns off...this happens for about 5-10 seconds then it flickers to the power light and flips right back to protect light... ultimately leading to no bass. what did i do wrong, what should i check first/last?

My Harmon kardon is stuck in protect mode

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Double check all connections .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Worth fixing.

My samsung avr720 reads "protection" when turned

Protect, Protection, Protector, etc. are all indicators of a problem with the output (speakers) of the device. Most times, if you're lucky - you'll find a shorted speaker wire. Other times, it can be an expensive fix. Hopefully, you shut it off right away without cranking the volume up.

Start at the rear of the unit. Make sure no individual strand of the speaker wire has touched the binding post of an adjacent speaker. Continue along each speaker wire to the binding post or termination point on each speaker. Make sure the insulation along the entire length of all the wires haven't become crushed or damaged where they pass under rugs, around corners, etc.

If you can't find a problem, you can try disconnecting all the speakers and plugging in headphones. and power on again. If the Protect message is clear, you should be able to hear the program through the headphones and have full control over the volume. This means there is stall an issue with the speaker wire(s) from the back of the unit up to and including a speaker(s).

If it still indicates Protect, the original problem continued long enough or the volume was turned up high enough to cause an internal failure of the amplifier's output transistors and will require service t restore to working order again.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a yamaha amplifier in here for repairs, the model no is A500, i cannot get the speaker protect relay to come on, i have replaced all the transistors & capacitors in the speaker protet circuit to no...

Measure DC to ground on the output transistors to check for any offset. The protect circuit is the least likely to be the problem. Post the readings here and I'll guide you from there.

My audio system says protect on display

Hi Jean,

Without a brand and a model, best that I can provide are generic possibilities:
1. unplug the unit from the mains for a couple of hours. This is supposedly to reset most systems; and/or
2. check the speaker wires and make sure none of any bare wires are touching each other.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
