There is no reset for most car amplifiers, if you are not getting sound and the red light is a protection indicator then your amp most likely has a blown channel and must be serviced by somebody who knows how to fix your type of amplifier. Some Kenwood amplifiers do have a reset for them since they have a microprocessor in them which is very rare for a car amplifier. Even with the Kenwood amplifiers that have a reset, it is unlikely that it would make your amplifier work again if the protection light is on. Since you gave no information about your amplifier except that the red light was on, I can not give you any additional help. I have been repairing car amplifiers for over 18 years and can assure you that you have an internal problem that will require the replacements of some parts.

Feel free to post any further questions you may have, but please list the make and model number of your amplifier. It would help a lot since not all amplifiers will have the same problems even with the same symptoms. Some types of amplifiers will have certain common failures that others do not.

Line six guitar amplifire...controls


Hi! I have a Spider III 15 watter, but I think the functions are similar. If the "Tap Tempo" light is flashing, you are not in Reverb mode. The light must be lit steady if you are in "Reverb" mode. I notice that you have to rotate the knob that you're working with all the way counterclockwise, and then clockwise to the setting you're trying to get. If you just turn it clockwise from where it is when you power on, it doesn't seem to do much to change the settings. Also, very little movement of the knobs makes a big change. They seem to be very sensitive.
You may want to reset your amp to the factory default settings. This will clear ALL presets that you have saved! To do this, hold down the CLEAN channel button when you power it on. Again, ALL SAVED PRESETS WILL BE CLEARED! Hope this helps.
The Line 6 forums are a great place for info. They will even tell you about "Secret Settings" that are not in the manual. Good luck and rock on!

My PG Xenon 600 watt amp will not power my subwoofers


hello it sounds like your problem may be in the remote/power wire that goes from the back of your radio deck to the amplifier. the amp should have a wire connection that says remote,p.con, or antenna. and its usually the smallest wire connector located by the power and ground wire. this wire goes to the solid blue wire coming out of the deck. you can conect the wires together any way you want. i usualy shave off a little pice of the wire cover and wrap the wire coming from the amp around the bare wire then cover it in electical tape or cut the blue wire from the deck at a fit length and use a wire nut and put the two cut ends in and also the wire coming from the amp. also make sure the amplifire dose not have power to it just to be safe. wouldent want to fry anything.

There is also the left and right wires(ususaly red and white) that go on the back of the deck to the amp.

also chek the volume on the amplifire

I hook up my alpine amplifire and the red light for the fuse protection comes. on what could it be?


It is either hooked up wrong or the wire you are using is too thin. Be sure to use the proper gage wire for the output of the amp.

Got a red light on amplifire how do you reset amp I have an Insignia NS P2000 I believe with two 12-inch Insignia subs & I have a similar problem with the indicator showing that the amp is in protection...


Have you tried turning your gain down a little and then slowly turn the gain up while the sound is on!!!! There could be a pinched wire in you speaker wires!!!! Make sure your remote wire is not touching any metal or ground wire!!!!
