Sony STR DE-525 Reciever

My reciever constantly goes into 'Protector' mode when cutting it on. I have to power off then on again several times before it remains on. I've checked the peaker wires for cuts and made sure they are secure

any ideas?

Do these 2 tests:Does it cut

Do these 2 tests:

Does it cut out if the volume is all the way down when you power it on?

Disconnect everything from the receiver except the power cord. Does it still cut out?

The problem I have is that

The problem I have is that the reciever doesn't always go into Protector mode every time I use it. It may happen 5 times in a row then not happen for several days

I have a sony reciever as

I have a sony reciever as well and was was having the
same problem. I contacted sony and was told that the unit will usually go into "protect" mode when it gets to hot so as to avoid damaging the internal components. Once I opened the space around the unit and provided better airflow (this can be done cheaply with a small cooling fan like the kind computers use) I have not had the problem since. I hope this helps.

Not only Protect mode kills

Not only Protect mode kills patience... there is one more thing... I get a message :Unlock: for some modes like DVD - Surround... I lost my main remote... so I engaged a Universal remote... and can anybody tell me how to unlock this by using main buttons on the receiver

pvkrishna76,Don't worry about

pvkrishna76,

Don't worry about the unlock message. Many Sony receivers, for some strange reason, display the term unlock when the reciever is set to use a digital input jack, but no digital signal is present. If you hooked up a DVD or CD player using a digital connection, the unlock message would disappear.
