Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello and sorry you're having problems.
To "remove" the protection circuitry the short circuit condition must be removed and the receiver unplugged and plugged back into power. There isn't a setting or adjustment that clears protection- if it's still up then the speaker outputs shorted internally.
So, can you please tell me the following:
1) Does the display actually show "Protect"- or is the red light stuck on with no display?
2) Have you unplugged the receiver and plugged it back in?
3) Have you tried REMOVING the speaker wires altogether and seeing if the unit powers up?
Please elaborate and we can proceed.
