Question about Pyle PT-3200 Amplifier Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Amp protection mode

Hello. My Pyle Pro PT-3200 has been having problem playing the left speaker after a friend drop a drink in it. I'm fairly good at figuring things out, so I opened it up and checked the two fuses on the left. They looked OK, but after comparing them to the ones on the right, they appeared bent like they started to melt. I'm guessing changing all of them should be a first step... Anybody with other suggestions, please? Thank you! jdor

Re: Amp protection mode

Try swapping the "bad" fuses for the "good" ones and see if that helps. That will tell you if the fuses are the problem. I doubt that is the problem. You never said what kind of problem you were having with the left speaker. If your friend dropped a drink into the amp then I would discontinue using it until it was checked out and don't be surprised if you have one channel that has some parts that need replacing, like some of the output transistors/MOSFET's. That might explain why your fuses appear to be melted. Maybe they are. In any case, get someone who knows what they are looking at to have a look see at your amp.

Lanzar amp 1000 watt stays on protect mode

Hello snow11879,

I haven't been able to locate any support information online about your product, other than the email contact for support questions:

If the amp stays in protect mode all of the time, I would suspect a short in the speaker wiring or speaker(s) voice coil(s), or perhaps a faulty ground. If it plays for a short period of time and then goes into protect mode, it is most likely overheating. First check all of the wiring. Test your speakers on a known good amp and make sure there are no places in your wiring where the insulation may have been damaged, causing an intermittent problem.

Many owners have reported that this particular amp has a tendency to overheat. Also, when run in bridged mode, the speaker impedance needs to be at least 4 ohms. It will overheat if the impedance is below 4 ohms.

Hope this helps.

Amp goes into protect mode after volume is turned up

Not enough juice, check the power and ground connections, another possibility is to have dc in the input, try to use in line filter available from radio shack to cut the dc, also test the with one speaker at the time, you could have a bad speaker (shorted) too.

Kicker amo in my old vette

If the amp is in protect mode, it probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, do the following.

With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low when the amp goes into protect.

If the voltage is OK, you need to check the speaker wiring and the speaker(s). Try it with a known good speaker if possible to see if the amp works normally.

Car audio amp in protection mode

If you power up the amp with the RCAs plugged in, does it go into protection mode.

My pyle amp keeps going into protection when i turn my music up and play it for a min

The most common cause is an unsafe load/speaker impedance. If you have the speakers wired correctly, you may have a short in the wiring. If the wiring is OK, the amp is likely defective

Let me know if you have any other questions.

It's very likely that the output transistors have failed in the amp. They will need to be replaced.
