Ok this means the AMP is in protection mode!..most likely the cause is a short in your wireing from the speaker wires! check all wires going in and out of amp! Look for stray wires touching metal or other contacts! (If this does not fix it the short may be inside of amp!
(This has nothing to do with a fuse!)

THANK YOU!

PROTECT means that the amp detected a short circuit on the speaker output, and rather than cook itself to death it switched off the output channel(s)

Unplug your speakers and turn on the amp. If the PROTECT light is still on, then you've blown a fuse (which might be inside the amp)

If the PROTECT light does not come on, then check your speaker wiring and speakers. If you have access to different speakers and wires, try swapping them out to see if you can isolate the component that's failed.

When i turn on my Samsung HT-C550 IT showing PROT and DVD turn off. What this is mean PROT?


PROT means that the AMP is protecting itself from damage due to bad or incorrect wiring or damaged and or incorrect speakers. Check your wiring and speakers.
If you find no problem then, DISCONNECT YOUR SYSTEM FROM THE POWER, disconnect your speaker wires...all of them, then reconnect the power ONLY, turn on the system and see if it still says PROT. If it does then your amp is damaged.

I dont know if my amp is blown or not


Usually you will smell something weird if your amp is fried and it would make a pop noise.

But all amps are different. I say its time to be shopping for a new amp

It doesnt work was wonderind what the PROT light means recently both fuses on amp blew and replaced them now it doesnt work i have power to the amp.


yes you have a internal fault of the amp. the circuit that puts it into safe mode is bad or is seeing something bad and that is a very small chip on the board know as a op amp. needs to be repaired.

Setting up my bands new pa!!!


You can work forwards from the mic to the speakers, or backwards from the speakers back to the mic.
The mixer and the amp both should have lights to indicate when there is signal present -- if you don't have lights at the mixer, then you won't have any sound downstream at the speakers. In this case, the problem is with the mixer or the sound source (mic or instrument)

If you *do* have lights at the amp, then the signal is getting that far, and the problem must be with the amp or the speakers.

parallel mean that you connect speakers wire together to amp(positive side with positive side and negative side with negative side)in this situation you got less resistance from speakers and more current.

RED Port light on AMP?


are you sure its not PROT?
the amplifier is protecting itself from fire because of something.
Disconnect the subs. and turn on.
if it comes on normally, the subs are at fault and will need attention. If the light still stays on, you hafe probably blown an output on the amplifier and it will need repair.

Red LED "Protection Light is on" What is the problem


The red light means the amp is in protection mode. A few things can cause protection mode..... First disconnect the subs completely from the amp, and turn it on, if it powers up you have blown subs. Also try checking the main power wire at the battery...sometimes the current your meter is seeing is backfeeding from the remote wire, so your main power line could be blown at the fuse under the hood. hope this helps
