Typically on Samsung units, if you get the PROT error it means PROTection. This means there is a short or hardware failure somewhere. If you are under warranty you need service. If its an old unit, you need a new one.

When I turn my system on, it waits 5 seconds, says "PROT" then shuts itself off.


There could be a short circuit in one of the speakers. This would cause high current flow thru the amplifier and result in self-protect. Disconnect all speakers from the unit and try powering up again. If there is no PROT, then reconnect speakers one by one until fault found or all speakers are reconnected.

Swtch off and disconnect and reconnect all the wiring especially speaker wires.

I fitted a new DVD Writer on my computer (XP Pro) and when I put a disc in the rom, a Microsoft error message poped up 'Windows Media Player cannot play the DVd because a compatible DVD decoder is not...


That's going to be a software error. Basically just letting you know that it has no idea how to play the file. Might need to upgrade to the latest Media Playerif you're trying to actually play a movie, or just disable autoplay to get rid of the message entirely

SYSTEM SHOWS ERROR CODE PROT AND SHUTS DOWN


Check the impedance (resistance) on all the speakers and the speaker wires themselves.
Power up the unit with no speakers or inputs attached at minimum volume and see if it still goes into protection mode.
Most speakers should measure between 4 and 8 ohms for most systems when disconnected from the receiver.
If the unit says PROT even with no inputs at minimum volume with the speakers detached, then there's a problem with the amplifier itself, probably in the output section.

I have a samsung HT-Z120 it show a PROT error


Hi,

This error means that you are trying to play a region-protected disc that is not in the same region as your player.

It is possible to "hack" the region on your DVD player by following these instructions:

When i turn on my Samsung HT-C550 IT showing PROT and DVD turn off. What this is mean PROT?


PROT means that the AMP is protecting itself from damage due to bad or incorrect wiring or damaged and or incorrect speakers. Check your wiring and speakers.
If you find no problem then, DISCONNECT YOUR SYSTEM FROM THE POWER, disconnect your speaker wires...all of them, then reconnect the power ONLY, turn on the system and see if it still says PROT. If it does then your amp is damaged.

When I put on my DVD player, it says "hello, DVD, LOAD, PROT" and turns off...


I assume "PROT" means some sort of protection mode. I would check to see if any of your speaker wires are crossed at the speakers or the receiver. If not you may have shorted something internal.

HT-Z320 displays PROT code and then shuts down


i had the same problem a prot display then it would shut down. turns out i had the sub disconnected(noise complaint from the shaking at my apartment complex) but the speaker wires for the sub connected to the amp or central unit. when i disconnected the sub i left the wires on the floor behind the sub separating the pos. and neg. somehow the wires got moved around and the pos was touching the neg. as soon as i noticed and fixed this problem the system was working fine. my samsung hometheater model is HT-BD1250
