My stereo is flashing the work "PROTECT" across the front

I bought a stereo from my son's friend and it has worked great for the past four months, but today I was going down a really bad street and hit a huge pot hole, then the words "PROTECT" started flashing and the radio will not work at all. What do I need to do? I appreciate your help if you can. Thank you, Shank22

In a Kenwood deck, "PROTECT" usually means that one of the speaker output wires is shorted. The first thing to do is pull the deck and inspect the wiring at the back, making sure there aren't any pinched or exposed wires. If a speaker wire is pinched against the deck chassis, or bare wire is touching dash metal, it can cause your problem. If you don't see anything obvious, disconnect all speaker wires from the deck, then turn it on. If it still flashes "protect", then you have a defect in the unit. If not, then re-connect the speakers one at a time until you find the one that causes it to go into Protect mode. Usually if you don't find a pinched or shorted wire behind the radio, the problem can be found at the speaker itself. This is especially common if you've installed after-market speakers; if a speaker terminal connection has come loose and is now touching the speaker basket or mounting surface, it will shut down the deck.

Simple fix: while the radio is on, take the face off and you will see a small hole in the plate the face attaches to, which usually says "reset". push a pin in the hole to reset the radio. Most of the time that will take it out of protect mode and radio will work. if it is still in protect mode, then do what tech says, test the wires.

My wives car battery kept going dead and had to be recharged often because it wasn't driven enough to keep the battery charged.
A friend told me about the Solar Panel and I bought one and haven had a problem since.
It really works great not only for the car battery but also for Trucks, boats, camping gear and RVs that have a 12V Battery.
It is available at Harbor Freight Stores. Copy this site

and paste it into your ADDRESS BAR and hit enter to view the Solar Panel.

Hope this will help solve your problem. Bud

Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!


yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run

No picture and no sound just a blinking stand by light on front of my sony kdl40s2000 lcd tv


I have a Sony KDL40S2000 and three months out of manufacturer warranty my TV made a clicking noise similar to feedback in a bad sound system and went to black screen. The error was not recoverable and four blinking lights were seen by a technician. I bought the extended warranty from my store, so I was covered. After one month in the shop, the technician brought my TV back today and told me the panel was replaced which would have cost me 1000 dollars if I wasn't covered by the store warranty. I read on another site the four flashing lights can mean a bad inverter. I don't know enough about TVs to tell you if the panel and inverter are one in the same, I just know you need to get it repared if you get four blinking lights at a huge cost!

Motorola RAZR V3 - Problem With Buttons


my son's phone is about 7 months old too and today when i turned it on it would not go past verizon welcome screen, no matter what. i don't use this phone, but if your volume controller is on the keyboard it could be that the keypad is going bad, which appears to be common with the razr. if it is the keypad, you can pick up a keypad flex cable for about $12 on ebay, and it's a very easy fix, but if it's just 7 months old, i'd return it under warranty, that's what i'm going to do. Let me know what you find out. I just think it's really strange that our phone suffered no damage of any kind, it just quit.
