Answered on Feb 04, 2009. Answered on Aug 24, 2011 if you have been blasting it, that could be why, recievers of this era are made with cheaper parts that cant handle what theyre supposed too, i dont know specifically, but things like that have some sort of auto fuse. Next disconnect all the speakers and try turning it on, if you still get the protect display you have to repair the output stage of the Amplifier. In that case unplugging the unit from main for some times can get rid of electrostatic charges, and reset circuits by draining power completely. Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors.
Try unplugging power cable for one hour or so. If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. Answered on Jul 31, 2010 Protet mode is a special diagnostic mode that starts when a fault is detected. If that was the problem, you will not get Protect when plugging back power cable. When in protection mode the unit is prevented from starting by protection circuit, so to prevent further damage.
It indicates you have an output short circuit. You will have to get professional help for that if you have no experience in electronics. Consult the owners manual for specific information. . If that is the case I suggest contacting the manufacturer at the number listed on the owners manual, or asking a quote on repair to a local technician. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Consult the owners manual for specific information.
Maximum volume listening will cause the receiver to run very hot and may drain the output capacitors. When I bought this one I thought it was going to do the same. Check the speakers and speakers wiring, a contact in speaker wires, or faulty speakers can send the unit in protection. Although it is still a good reciever. I know it is confusing. There is no code to unlock.
If you do all the above and still get Protect, then there is a real fault. This resistor can be replaced with your product warranty, contact your seller for the details regarding warranty. In that case the unit may be disassembled and tested to find the fault. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Sometimes accumulation of electrostatic charges inside circuit capacitors can kick in protect mode. That's what I got for trying to save a couple bucks on the cheeper model! First check if all the speaker cables are all right with no shorting of the wires. Answered on May 29, 2009 I got this from Sony site, I am doing it to mine now, unplugged it first.
