    Hello all,

    I have an HK PM665vxi integrated that has recently
    started to stay in protect mode (I assume it is a
    protect mode) for 5 minutes after it is powered on.
    It didn't use to do this. After the unit comes on it
    works fine. Anyone have a similar experience with an
    amp? I checked all cables, speaker wires, etc. and
    cannot find a problem. Could this be an indication that
    something is going bad? Once the amp is out of protect
    mode I never have a problem.

    Thanks for any help/suggestions.

    Steve

    Steve,

    the fact that the unit stays in protect mode for 5 minutes definitely indicates that something is wrong. Have you tried disconnecting all cables before turning the unit on. If it still stays in protect mode, the unit clearly has a fault. If not, then the problem is in you cabling.
