Temp light wont go off on my amp

I think the cause of the problem is that my speaker wire may have touched each other causing a short circuit.. (I put Speakon clips onto my speakers which were originaly just RED/BLACK).. This was working fine on Friday night (The night before).. I have taken out the old speakers (RED/BLACK ones) and just left in my 500w 15inch Loudspeaker (Pro Sound with Speakon) but the Temp light will not go off. It sais it will resume normal operation after 3-5 minutes but this doesn't happen!

Shorting a car amp's speaker connection while in operation tends to pop the lids off of the capacitors. If you are not afraid to uninstall the amp and open it up, look for popped caps and oil stains on the circuit board. If this is the case, find some place to repair it or repair it yourself.

I need to reset a power amplifier. i have a 250 watt power amplifier from radio shack. i thtink that one of the wires touched or someething either that or the power was on for too long. but now the p


One important note to be aware of Polarity. DC connections are Positive + and Negative -. RED/Black and/or White wires. Yellow is usually Video. Do not Reverse the polarity as this can cause mismatches and/or short circuits. Disconnect your attached wires and re-attach them correctly and firmly. Wires must be set into or onto the posts or connection points correctly by + or - and they may not touch one another. Check the Reset or Fuse on the amp and make certain you have full power.
If you fail to polarize correctly, you could damage the speakers moreso than the Amp.

Overload sa-tx50


Most overloads are caused by the main output devices. They will go short circuit if for example speaker wires have come into touch. Another cause is high volume or a faulty speaker. Or poor ventilation around the amp causing excess heat.
The only cure is to replace the device(s) generally located on the heat sink.

Hooked the damn thing up power my subs wonderfully for that evening, and all day today, got in this evening and nothing, checked the amp and red light, ok, fine, checked the manual, says the light protects...


probably something corssed in your speaker wiring. be sure that you did not exceed the ohmage capabilities of the amp, and that no speaker wires are crossed, or shorting out on the frame. if you have too many speakers hooked up, that can reduce the ohmage, and your not supposed to go below 2 ohms -per channel, or 4 ohms bridged mono.

I run a sub and two sets of speakers on speaker B of my NAD C740 through a speaker selector. I think there has been a short circuit caused by the + and - wires touching. The left channel no longer works on...


Check that both left and right channels work on A speakers. If they do, the amplifier is probably good and your problem may be outside the amplifier. Try swapping the left and right speaker connections at the back of the amp to see if the problem changes from left to right. this would tell you if the problem is in the amp or out to the speakers. Hope this helps

When right channel is wired it shorts out the power supply. Aragon 8008 when powered up without input and output, no problem. When connected with speakers and line level feed in, the left channel works...


Fuses blow when there is an overload caused by a short circuit. If the speaker you connect up to the amp causes a short. There is either a shorted part in the speaker or the wires to it are touching at some point. Assuming you can sort out the speaker issue and connecting a good speaker with good wiring and it still causes a short and blows a fuse. Then it's likely the output device(s) in the right channel have developed a short themselves. Perhaps as a result of being connected to faulty wiring or speakers.

My sony cd player will turn on but wont play sound?


reset the unit. (use the reset button if it has one or remove all power to it) check the power to any amps you have hooked up and check for short circuited speaker wires (the - wire touching the + wire) all these things will cause you to have no sound.. if that dont work have the unit looked at at a audio shop it might need replaced

Marathon 2000 amp... PROT light


Ok this means the AMP is in protection mode!..most likely the cause is a short in your wireing from the speaker wires! check all wires going in and out of amp! Look for stray wires touching metal or other contacts! (If this does not fix it the short may be inside of amp!
(This has nothing to do with a fuse!)
Please rate this FREE response!
THANK YOU!
