Check the fuses and make sure there are no wires touching. Thats all i know for an amp. If you're positive its hooked up right with good wiring the only other thing i could think of is the amp is fried. sucks..

Power acoustik bafm2000/1d no power coming from channel


HelloAny one channel circuit of the amplifier has any sort of trouble, the amp will go to protect mode. It may be a direct short in it he output circuit. This is the common fault for these type of amps. A through check should be done to find out the reason. You must have sound knoledge in electronics, and experience to do this work by yourself. In most cases, unlike TVs, amps circuits are quite complicated and user cannot do it by themselves. OK.

The red light is on but there is power to the unit. no visible


If the red light is the protect LED, the amp probably has shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible causes, read through the following page:

Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Amp Not working!


If the amp goes into protect mode, it's likely due to shorted output transistors. To eliminate other possible problems, read through the following page:

Amp in Protect Mode - Troubleshooting

If the problems are not with the wiring, follow the link at the bottom of the page to the Amplifier Repair Primer page.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Protection Mode? amp wont start


With your multimeter set to DC volts and the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp, touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals as the amp shuts down. If the voltage drops below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is dropping too low.


If the voltage remains near or above 12v, disconnect all speaker wires and signal cables from the amp. If it powers up, the wiring needs to be checked. If it still shuts down, the amp likely has blown output transistors.

Red light


It sounds like the output transistors have failed. Disconnect everything from the amp except for the B+, ground and remote and turn the amp on. If it goes into protect, the amp is in need of repair. If you want to repair it yourself, email power acoustic for the schematic.
