Open Question

Amp in protect mode

I have a Phoenix God Xenon 1200.1 amplifier. My dad has the same amp in his car. It worked for about 5 months until one day his subs stopped working. The amp's LED flashes on and off and makes a clicking sound, I'm assuming this means it is in protect mode. I gave him my amp and it works perfectly in his car. His amp does not work in my car either. I took a look inside the amp and I don't see any internal fuses, are there any? If so, where are they and what do they look like? If it is not a fuse issue, what can I do or where can I take it? I don't know of any amp repair shops, or if they even exist. THANK YOU!!

if the amp went into protect you need to disconnect all power including ground for at least 20 min to discharge caps inside.

SOURCE: led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

Well I'm beginning to think its not just my amp. PG is having a lot of problems with there amps. It don't help with the connections being internal. Makes it to easy for strands of wire to enter. I just got mine in May and it just quit.

No sound from subs

You need power to the amp. If the light on the amp is not on then your amp is the problem. Get power to it.

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing

  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.

    Amp on "protect" mode

    Hi, what you need to do is unplug all the connections to the amp. The amp goes into protection when the circuitry over heats.\
    First decrease all your gains to minimal volume.
    Connect your 12+V, remote, and ground.
    See if the protection light comes on then.
    Next plug in your RCA cables.
    Check protection light.
    Then plug in your subwoofer cables.
    See if you are still in protect mode.
    Hopefully everything works alright again.
    Just slowly increase the gain to see what the cut-off is. Make sure you aren't dropping the ohmage too low on the amplifier. Check manual for correct wiring and such.

    Protection mode

    It's normal for some amps to go into protect for a few seconds when initially powered up. If it remains in protect mode, it may have shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following troubleshooting page:

    Phoenix gold xenon 600.1 power problem

    Sometimes problems like this are caused by tiny strands of wire in the amp. These can cause catastrophic amplifier failure. If you pull the cover off of the amp, you should be able to see the strands (if they're present). If that's not the problem, you should send the amp back to PG for repair. Before you pull the cover, completely disconnect power from the amplifier.

    Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . Remember to disconnect all power including ground for about to 1/2 hour to discharge capacitors. You might get lucky and get a reset. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. led-light-keeps-flashing-phoenix-gold-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-3-0.jpg
