Most of the time in my experience when that happens the amp usually has a fried circuit . make sure no wires are touching or grounding out. Also make sure both the 12 volt constant and remote both have power still. And a good, short ground is a vital key to a proper audio system.

This amp uses a TDA2050 chip that has thermal protection. It is also a small amp that is NOT capable of high sound levels. If *********** can't stand to be within 5 feet of this amp you are playing TOO LOUD for this amp and it will shut down until cooled off to protect the amplifier chip. This amp is intended for practice. It would be adequate for sensible listening level in a 10 foot by 10 foot room. If you need more sound you will have to get a bigger amp. I would suggest you get a sound meter and verify the sound level. DO NOT exceed 4 hours at 90 DB... I know a lot of deaf musicians that have lost their hearing and they are not much good anymore.

Safe light boston gt 20 amp


First,check the output functions of your radio.

Then test the power lead for 12+ volts and ground at the amp, also be sure the "turn-on/remote power" lead from the radio is supplying 12+ volts when the radio is turned on.
Good luck...
