Look under the volume control knob and you'll see a small little indent to the right of control. take a ballpoint pen and stick it once and your radio will reset!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

How to reset my sony mhc-gs100??? it keep saying power protect...


Your stereo went into protect mode to prevent complete failure of the amplifier inside that radio. Most of the time this happens from playing the stereo real loud for a real long time and it overheats. Most of the time disconnecting the receiver/stereo and letting it cool all the way down or at least 5 minutes and then reconnecting it to the power source will reset the protection mode. You want to make sure you are keeping the radio cool. Don't stack anything on top of it and try keeping a small fan blowing on it to expedite the heat out from the unit. Also turning it down every now and then to let everything cool down a bit will help prevent it from going into protection mode as well.

My Kenwood car stereo keep falshing the word "Protect" how to fix


in front of your #1 preset button there is a reset button push it with a pin. if you made a pass # put it in if not page 12 show you how to make one if you want. reseting it should make it work if it dont you have a short somewhere start from scratch buy taking it out. I suggest you dont make a password till the short is gone. Mine did the same thing but because i was pulling to much power on starting my car with my amps.

Its my belief that stereos in vehicles can become corrupted by maleware code. Do you play mp3, ipod, or burned cds in the stereo. I broke my factory stereo when I played a burned cd once. The market is ripe for virus and maleware protection for your car stereo so don't be surprised if you see virus protection and their virus creating friends on the scene soon. "Try reseting the stereo". You can also try to pull the ground to the car battery for 2 minutes but you will have to let the car idle for 10 minutes after you reconnect the post to set the idle correctly and let the car essentially reboot. Also jump starting a vehicle could cause malfunctions in the stereo if not breaking the electronics inside, very likely in the colder climates.

The protect light stays on


is your amp grounded well?
are all of your fuses fine?
connections to stereo?

if all else fails you might have blown your amp like mine, you can see about getting it fixed but i just found another one.

how many watts is your amp? how much does your sub need?

I love loud music


i have alpine stereo's in all my vehicles and i have had this problem. if you run a 10-14 gauge constant wire from the stereo directly to the battery the stereo will not shut down in protection mode. it is not the cd it is the stereo going into protection mode because of lack of current not voltage. i hope this helps after i did this i could play the stereo as loud as it can go until my battery died

Can't do anything - LCD screen says "PROTECT"


It may be that there is a problem with a fuse inside the stereo. It may say protect because the fuse has broken a connection that allows it to turn on. If the protect goe sup it is trying to help save the stereo from cooking its self, and give you a chance to get it fixed. If that is not the problem then it may be easier to just buy a new one, because a fix may be expensive if you don't have any warranties.
