Having the speaker wires hooked up backwords will not cause protect mode. If the wires were crossed (in other words shorted), that would. Disconnect all speaker wires, if the unit is still in protect mode, than the output transistors are probably shorted and the unit will again require service. Upon return from service, I would turn on the unit without speakers to insure that the unit at least works that far. Also, if you have an ohmmeter, measure across the speaker terminals. You should read either 3 or 6 ohms. If you read 0, the problem is a shorted speaker that then shorted the amp.

Keep us posted.

NAD 272 Channel drop out


well..this is one for the books. Can you tell me what the ratings are between the 252 and the 752 impedance matching wise? even though it might work sometimes, impedance matching can wreak havoc between mismatched amps.

what are you driving from the 752 into the 252?

Losing the right channel


usually this would indicate a dry joint inside or some other temp related intermittent fault, component problem. Take it to a tech and tell them what happens

It sounds like yo shorted the speaker wires together for a short time and smoked the output section of the amp. The amber light is an indication that the amp is in protect mode. If you attempt to power up the amp and still have the amber light even with all speaker wires disconnected, the amp needs repair. The output transistors for that side will need to be replaced.

How to I hook up 5.1 surround no a 7.1 amp


Try reversing the Left and Right inputs if the problem follows the left input it's in the left cable or feed. if the problem stays in the left side it is in your surround sound or amp.

If your amp is under warranty, bring it to the nearest service center to have it fixed. But if not, and you know a little electronics, check for the bloated capacitor and/or a burnt resistor on the audio module and replace it. still not working, change the audio I.C. of the amp. If you don't know electronics, bring it to the electronics shop. Audio coming out of the headphone is different form the audio of the speakers. Sounds on your headphone is coming from the preamp circuit. That explains why the headphone audio is ok.

SOUND FROM YOUR SURROUND SPEAKERS COMES BY BECAUSE OF PROCESSING THAT TAKES PLACE IN YOUR SURROUND CIRCUITS. IF THE SURROUND MODE IS ACTIVATED AND U GET NO EFFECT AND U SURE YOUR SURROND SPEAKERS ARE OPERATIONAL AND FULLY FUNCTIONAL. THEN THE PROBLEM LIES WITH YOUR SURROUND DECODING IN YOUR UNIT. REFER TO QUALIFIED SERVICING AGENTS.
