    I have the same problem, light flashing. My amp has been installed for 7 years and nothing changed, it just stopped working today. So likely an internal problem.

The amp will reset every time it's turned off. The red light flashing, instead of staying constant is a warning that one of the protection circuits are activated. If the amp is bridged wrong, it can do this. If the load impedance is too low, it can also do this... don't trust the speaker, it it says 4-ohm, it may actually be 3.8-ohm, which could cause a problem if two speakers are wired in parallel. If it's not getting enough power, it will turn off briefly, but will turn back on after a second. A capacitor is not necessary with this, just use 4 gauge cable and have a good battery... make sure the ground is good, that one is commonly ignored.

Hi, note that if you are not using the proper gauge b+ and gnd cable with this amp then the current available at the amp wont be sufficint to keep amp on. also try using this amp while vehicle is idling. if this doesnt work then disconnect all spks from amp and check if red lite stops flashing. if it doesnt stop flashing then amp has internal fault. if lite stays on brite then proceed to check each spk load impedance, then reconnect each spk individually. the minute red lite starts flashing it will give you a clue that the channel or spk load is faulty. cheers

Kenwood ddx373bt the red light flashes won't turn on. I pressed the reset button nothing works?


Check the 10 amp fuse on the rear of the radio. As its recieving a memory live power feed but not a ignition live feed hence the flashing red light. If the fuse isnt blown you need to then check the ignition live power feed cable as its probably open circuit did you use a wiring harness adaptor?

I miss placed my manual for my incredible holiday light show, The trees are all pluged in I get a flashing red light in the back but it wont start what am I forgetting to do


Just put mine up & it did the same thing. Unplug power. Have remote handy & paperclip. Find reset hole behind remote. Plug in power, red light will flash, hold reset button in until unit stops flashing. Make sure remote is also powered on. Thats it.

The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.


There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

Red blinking light


The red light blibking 6 times indicates that the power supply board has a defective or damaged area. I know this because i had the same problem...bought a damaged tv for parts and replaced the power supply board as the tv would not turn on...wokrs like a charm now.

Won't power up


I had the same problem after I replaced my lamp. You need to hold down the:

On
Enter
Down Arrow
Right Arrow

simultaneously - this resets the lamp counter. After I did that my projector fired right back up.
