    Hi Johnny and Marco,
    Does your unit go into protect mode without speakers connected?.

I took it in and they said it would cast $100 to fix....That is ********. So i took it home, and beat the **** out of it to get my cd's out and then threw that ***** away.

Your problem is your linear intergrated amplifier chip has blown, or has dry joints. causing you system to go in to protect mode which stops more damage being caused and fire not occurring. if you have no technical back ground in electronics, then i wouldnt attempt repair yourself. if you have take cover off and on the long metal heat sink there is a black like box with between ten and thirty legs going in to circiut board thats your problem, theres a code on the front of it with 2 or 3 letters then a number, thats your part number they range in price from between £7.00 to 50.00 pounds.. hope this helps

Hxd7 protect

Don't buy a stereo that prints up 'PROTECT MODE' and then does not tell you how to cure it. This is a good way of getting people to buy a new one only live and learn do not buy the same manufacturer again. I have a nice just out of warrenty JVC that when I switch it on sits there grinning at me with 'PROTECT MODE' showing. Yes I have entered cash protect mode and decided I am not going to buy another JVC.

Most likely he has a couple of the connectors crossed. It is going in protect mode to keep it from damaging the internal electronics. Open it back up and double check all connections. then let me know.

I have this stereo and so do 2 friends. We've all had the same problem but I turned my stereo into a certified repair shop and they fixed the problem. I think something on one of the PCB's inside the unit misaligned. I didn't pay more than $50 for the repair. There was no major repair they told me.
