    Help Needed: 'Protect' Flashing on Receiver

    Thanks John. I'll try unpugging it. I'll check the speaker connections again too. If neither work, is there anything else it can be ?

    Help Needed: 'Protect' Flashing on Receiver

    I went to turn on my receiver to watch a dvd and Protect is flashing. No sound will not come on. I looked in the manual and it says that it means that there is a short somewhere. I disconnect each speaker one by one and tried to turn on the receiver but I always got the Protect...

    Dennis, Could you post a picture of what it looks like ? Is it the piece where 2 wires are coming out of ? Where could I get a new one from ? This is what mine looks like. How much of this (or all) do I need to replace ?

    Inground Sprinkler Help Needed

    I turned the valve for zone 3 manually and they did come on. I switched the zone 3 wire in the control box to zone 4 but it still didn't come on. I also checked for loose connections in the valve box. Now what ?
