My car amp powers on but, doesn't have all of it's power!

The power light comes on, I do get some sound passing through the amp but, it's only about one third(1/3of the amp's power!

SOURCE: i get no sound out of the amp

Sounds like your amp has bad output transistors, either that or something on the circuit board has come loose. Call the manufacturer.

SOURCE: amp not working

if your light is not coming on then you probably dont have power to it. check all your connections and make sure it is all hooked up right. check the remote with in the back of the deck.

Amp Failure:
There are many different ways that an amp can fail but the two most common failures are shorted output transistors and blown power supply transistors (< those are not blown). There are several types of protection circuits in amplifiers. The most common are over-current and thermal. The over-current protection is supposed to protect the output transistors. Sometimes it doesn't work well enough to prevent the failure of the output transistors but it will work well enough to shut the supply down before the power supply FETs are destroyed. If the amp remains in protect mode, goes into protect mode or blows the fuse as soon as the remote voltage is applied, shorted output transistors are almost certainly the cause. If the fuse protecting the amp is too large, if the protection circuit doesn't respond quickly enough or if the power supply is poorly designed, the power supply transistors may fail. If you see a lot of black soot on the power supply transistors (near the power transformer), the power supply transistors have failed. Soot on the board doesn't necessarily mean the transistors have failed. Sometimes, technicians don't clean up the mess from a previous failure. Transistor Failure/Checking Transistors:
In general, when a transistor fails, it will either short (common for output AND power supply transistors) or open (common for power supply transistors). Transistors act like valves. They control the current flowing through a circuit. A shorted transistor acts like a valve that's stuck open (passing too much current). In the case of an output transistor, the shorted transistors tries to deliver the full rail voltage to the speaker output terminal. If you've ever seen a damaged amp that pushed or pulled the speaker cone to its limits when the amp powered up (common on some Rockford amplifiers), that was almost certainly due to a shorted output transistor. When checking transistors, you most commonly look for shorted connections inside the transistor. You do this by using a multimeter to look for low resistance connections between the transistor's terminals.

SOURCE: Samsung lcd has no power,

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.

  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

sound like dead battery.no power to fuses if battery dead use digital voltmeter check battery volts should 12.6 volts if not have battery charged tested.if battery 4 or 5 years old battery could be faulty.

Engine dies at stop lights when air conditioning is in use


Lets use common sense on the Trans Flushing

Old Fluid out --- New Fluid in---WOULD THAT DO ANYTHING
TO CORRECT ANY PROBLEM------NO

Trans & Power Steering Fluids-- are done every 3 years
in my world
They are called Preventative Maintenance,just like spark plugs,
gas & air filters,nothing else,fixes nothing

Trans fluid breaks down over time from heat & then your
clutches burn up & your trans fails,no other reason to change
the fluid

If the Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is bad & doesn't
release when you apply the brake,then it is like slowing down
with a standard shift car & not putting in the clutch when you
come to a stop

You need to ask more questions & understand what your
told or stay in the conversation & take it into the service bay
& not deal with a service writer who doesn't work on the
product.

Hooked up my amp it has power but power light won't come on won't power up front speakers work and have sound but it doesn't move to back


Make sure the remote wire is hooked up. You can run a small wire from the power terminal to the remote terminal. If it powers up, then you have a remote wire problem. You can run a remote wire from the blue power antennae wire of the deck.

How to connect aftermarket radio into 2002 toyota camry JBL radio (the standart wiring doesn't work).Thanks


Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

I have no sound coming from my sub or my back speakers. all the fuses are fine and all connections are fine as well and the blue light on my amp is on. and the it seem the power light and protection light...


With the radio OFF, take a jumper wire and connect from the 12V input to the remote input of the amp to see if it powers on.(BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE GROUND). If it does, your remote from the radio is either cut somewhere, or not working at all. If it doesn't turn on then turn on the radio and do the same thing with the jumper wire, if it turns on, then your 12V power from battery is not working, maybe a blown fuse by the battery?

No dash lights, power locks don't work, fuel gadge doesn't work, radio doesn't work.


all these circuits share some common fuses, check fuse #6 ( 10 amp ), fuse # 11 ( 15 amp ) & fuse #12 ( 10 amp ) all in the inside fuse box at the left end of the dash.....good luck

MY PUNCH IS IN THE TRUNK OF G35 INFINITI WHEN I TURN CAR OFF THE AMP IS STILL RUNNING AND DRAINING MY BATTERY I SEE A RED LIGHT ON THE AMP WHILE POWER IS OFF IN CAR


Most amps have a remote on terminal, which takes a small current wire to "turn on" the amp, and when you stop current to that terminal, it turns off the amp. It sounds like this current is still live when you turn the car off, so your amp doesn't know to turn off.

With the car off, test the lead at the remote on terminal (usually blue wire, as I do it) with a dc meter or test probe. If it reads +12v, it shouldn't. Find a new "remote on" power lead. This is generally provided by the "power antenna on" lead out of the deck. Run a wire to the amp from the power antenna on lead, and retest.

I'll bet on success after this.

MY GTO 7001 HAS ITS LIGHT WORKING, BUT NO POWER COMING OUT.


Make sure your rca jacks are plugged into both your headunit and amp. Also make sure that the amps filters are set so that the amp plays all frequencies and doesn't block out any.
