darren, The prot means it goes into protection mode and shuts itself down to prevent any further damage. It is possible that your DVD player has detected a problem in the amplifier section and is shutting down to prevent further damage. I would check is all of the speaker wiring. Sometimes it will indicate that the internal fan is not working or the internal sensors have failed to recognize that the fan is functioning. Hope this helps, good luck.

After checking the speakers and wiring, etc., for possible faults, I think the simple answer is, in all probability, a power surge. Solution: disconnect wireless from the mains supply, disconnect speakers and antenna, wait for about 30 minutes or longer. Reconnect to mains, connect speakers and antenna and switch on the mains supply. The wireless should now be working properly. If so, I suggest you purchase a surge adaptor from somewhere like Argos stores. A good one costs about £10 and is well worth being free of all the hassle of the wireless going into PROTECT mode due to a power surge.
