it sounds like it could be a blown channel in the amp. if the sub was blown it would still work just sound horrible. i have blown many subs and amps. you can bring it to an audio shop near you and they can fix it. i just got one of my channels fixed for 35$

The fuses should be 30Amps each and they are there as a protection system in case of a power surge. They will blow before damaging your amplifier. However it is not a 100% fail safe proof.

It could be the wiring. Sony amps will go into protection if the ohm is to low. They usually like to see 4 ohm or higher. Unplug your speaker wires and see if it still stays in protection. If it does could be an internal thing in the amp. If it isn't rewire subs in series not parallel.

Unlike the stereo unit, amps doesn't have a reset button.

Check the fuse in your hood.
Check all wiring, especially the ground to chassis.
Check for voltages, remote turn on should have 12V to ground and power cable should have around 12 to 14 volts.

The amp is overheating it doesn't have a built in fan. This will be more occasional in the summer months. The best solution is to build a box and buy a few computer fans, install a fuse link run the positive of the fans to a remote wire and ground the fans to the chassis of your vehicle. You need a way to recirculate the air inside your amp. I've decided to remove the bottom plate of the amp, mount the amp on a board. Cut holes out of the board and have one fan flipped to pull hot air from the amp and two fans to push the air away from the amp.
You can buy the Antec and Rocket Fish fans for under $15 from Best Buy.

you may have a bad ground on the rca's. try running a wire from ground to the shielding if the rca's and see if it goes away. if it does, either take the amp apart and repair the ground trace, or run a wire from ground to the rca shield permantly.

Hi the protection light comes on when there is a problem within the amps. circuitry. Generally speaking the protection light normally comes on when powered up while the amp checks all of its voltage rails so that they all lie within a specific tolerance, when all have been verified to be in spec. then the protect light goes out & the power light comes on. If the protect light stays on then a fault exists within it's circuitry. Cheers, acbva.

Check the switch wire connection. It's the one that turns the amp on when you turn the head unit on.

For some reason it has gone into protection mode to limit further damage to the amplifier. Remove the subwoofer wires and power on to eliminate shorted voicecoil. After checking all wires for continuity to ground, a service tech will be required.
