Well.. I need a little more information. Do you have the amp properly installed? Check your grounds, your power lines, your speaker leads.. if anything is out of wack, it will trigger the protection light.

I have a ma audio hk-602sx and my protect light wont go off and somthing is clicking inside and as it clicks the protect light blinks.


Disconnect the speakers and then try it again...there may be a shorted speaker or wire if the amp comes out of protect after you disconnect the wires...if the amp stays in protect after you disconnect the wires then there is a problem inside the amp with the circuitry and it will need to get serviced by an electronic tech

My amp wont turn on its a swiss audio amp the only light that comes on is a protection light how do i get it to work?


Check the fuse or fuses. Replace them as they are probably blown. If that fails contact someone qualified to open it up and inspect & fix it.

I have a dub2502 amp with the red protection light on and will not go off. The amp is a 1100 watt peak amp @ 4 ohms and my sub is an Audiobahn 1100 watt peak, 4 ohm. wired perfectly. so how do I fix the...


The unit will need to be repaired by a technician. Most likely you have a bad transistor that is causing the protect mode to turn on. The only way to get the protect mode to turn off is to remove the bad part.

Red protection light wont turn 2 green no matter what so the amp wont work


Hello mcis43fan,

The protection circuit can be activated by shorted or grounded wiring or it can be caused by a defect in the amp itself.

First, disconnect all wires except power, ground and the remote turn-on lead and see if the amp powers up normally. If it still goes into protection, the amp is defective, most likely shorted outputs and needs repair or replacement. If the amp powers up normally, test the other wiring for shorts and grounds. You can reconnect them one at a time to determine which one is causing the problem.

Hope this helps.

2000 watt american legacy amp protection ligh wont go off


Same thing happened to me so I returned it for repair turns out it was an internal 25amp fuse on the output. Got it back an it sounded very weak now it does not play at all. Nothing wrong with my setup as I have now got an 800watt amp that is running great.

Protection light is on


Disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

switch off the amp then take off all the wires off including the speaker wire and then reconnect the wires on like before the problem is that the amp is on protection and if that dont work then get it repaired another thing is make sure ur amp fuses havent blown.
