First thing to do is disconnect all of the speaker wires on the amp. Turn on the amp, if it is still turning on and off then there is a definant problem in the amp circuitry. If you have no solid state service skills, I highly advise you to take the amp into a repair shop. If it stops turning on and off turn off the amp and try and connect up one speaker at a time untill the amp starts to mess up. you then take that speaker and have it checked out and inspect the wireing for pinchs or shorts.

I have a JBL GTO 7001, it switches in an out of protection mode. i pulled out the amp, an noticed that the positive wire from the speaker was pulled out. so i disconnected the power scorce an reconnected...


Make sure that your positives and negatives are lined up correctly. This happened to me during my latest install and the problem was I had one positive speaker wire plugged into a negative speaker terminal. This switches the amp on after a few seconds and then back to protect mode once it detects a faulty speaker wire. Hope this helps!

My Yamaha SW118 keeps cutting out (volume reduces to v low level) even when driven by 500W amp. Doesn't seem to be the amp but not sure if the speaker has it's own internal protection. Can anyone advise?


Poly Switch
All full-range loudspeakers are fitted with a self-resetting
poly switch that protects the high-frequency driver from
damage caused by excessive power.
If a loudspeaker cabinet loses high-frequency output, immediately
remove power from the unit and wait for two to three
minutes. They should allow the poly switch to reset. Reapply
power and check the performance of the high-frequency
driver before continuing with the power reduced to a
level that does not cause the poly switch to interrupt the signal.
On the SW115V/SW118V/SW218V sub woofer, the Poly
Switch protects the woofer and a similar routine should be
followed if its output is lost.

Amp won't come out of safety protection mode. have soldered many suspected dry joints and checked voltages on IC502 (Power Amp IC) PLEASE help!!!


The protection mode is often switched on when an overload has/is happened/happening. This is caused more often than not by faulty speaker wiring or problems. It sounds to me like IC502 might well be the cause, or perhaps a faulty relay if it uses one. But IC's are often to blame, this one might even control the protect mode!

DIP Switches don't seem to matter


You need to completely power off (wall switch or breaker) when changing the dip switches. Not just power off from remote because it will keep previous setting. I learned it the hard way....

Door locks


That is your issue. I found that water had dripped into the power lock switch and shorted out the circuit board. This caused all of the problems that you described above. Replace your driver side door lock switch and you should be set.

Denon AVC-A1SE in protection mode


The numbers of the transistors thay you need to replaced are on the transistor themselfs. Just take out the bad transistors and get the numbers that you need. I ALWAYS replace the output, driver and bias control transistor myself. One thing to keep in mind, if the number on the transistor starts with "A or B or C or D or K" you need to add "2S" in front of that number when you order it. Now that this problem has repeated itself, double check your wire and speaker. They can cause this problem.

Amp staying in protection mode


No, this amp is not a heavy power consumer- matter of fact it takes very little power to run.Maybe you should check the fuses on the amp to see if they are what is recommended.Also check your fuse kit to your amp- your fuse might not be big enough.If neither works take it back where u got it.
