Led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

When i go to turn on my system all the other speakers work but the led light is blinking off and on, on my phoenix gold xenon-600.1 amp and my subs wont work i have checked all the connections to the amp from the head unit and wires all the way to the battery i checked the fuse and its in working condition, if its over heating i dont know why because i have a seperate fan blowing on the amp as soon as the car is turned on and the amp i have easily pushes the subs i am currently using.

Re: led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

Well I'm beginning to think its not just my amp. PG is having a lot of problems with there amps. It don't help with the connections being internal. Makes it to easy for strands of wire to enter. I just got mine in May and it just quit.

Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty . Remember to disconnect all power including ground for about to 1/2 hour to discharge capacitors. You might get lucky and get a reset. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. led-light-keeps-flashing-phoenix-gold-zb4bomd1rt4qms0dqd12kkt2-3-0.jpg

Hi you may have moisture in your amp you should remove amp, then take top cover off of the amp and take a blow dryer and dry off the circuit board. dont get to close you dont want to melt anything in there if there is moisture you will see the board drying out.replace and see what happens i had this same problem and it worked for me.

If the amp went into protect you need to disconnect all power including ground for at least 20 min to discharge caps inside.

My amp just stopped working one day almost new dont known why

DID YOU CHECK YOUR FUSES? Is there anything lighting up on it to see if it is in fact turning on? If it's lighting up and there is no protection lights lit up then check your speakers to make sure you didn't burn them up. If there is a protect LED lit then unhook your speakers and see if it stays lit or not. If it stays lit then check to make sure you're getting enough voltage at the amp connection, minimum of 11.0 volts is required just to get it to turn on. If it has under voltage and over voltage protection LEDs see if they're lit. If you do all of these things and are getting enogh voltage, your speakers are not burnt, your protection LEDs are lit no matter what then you need warranty repair that amp. If your speaker wires are shorted it will make your amp shut down also, but since you were using it for a day or so my bet is that you burnt up one of your speaker voice coils and it's internally shorted and that will cause your amp to shut down in protect mode. Otherwise you probably internally fried your amp by too low of voltage or not enough current (amperage) due to not large enough conductor (too small gauge wire) should be minimum of 8 Ga. for each amp, 2 amps will require 4 Ga, 3 or more will need 2 Ga, or 0 Ga. wiring to keep the voltage and current flow high enough to keep from damaging the amps. Good Luck!

My phoenix gold x200.4 amp turns on but the protect light keep on flashing

  • What does it mean when the LEDs flash on my amplifier?
    With most recently produced Phoenix Gold amplifiers, a flashing/blinking LED is an indication that the unit is in protect mode, usually due to an overcurrent condition caused by an internal short, external short (speakers), or low impedance. Overheating will also cause the amplifier to shut down temporarily.

    If amplifier remains in protect mode, power down the amplifier, disconnect the speakers, and power up again. If LEDs continue to flash, there is probably an internal problem with the amplifier that will require service attention to fix.

    My phoenix gold xenon 100/2 keeps blinking and putting a loud buzzing sound into my speakers, it went into protect mode, whats wrong with her just got it.

    More than likely a blown output transistor. Phoenix can send you a schematic for that if you email their tech support. Be careful if you decide to work on it yourself.

    Blue light flashes

    Hello www_wallyeva,

    The most likely causes for an amp to go into protection, is a short or ground on the output terminals.

    Remove the speaker wires and see if the amp powers up normally. Check the speaker wires and voice coils with a multimeter to locate a short or ground.

    Hope this helps.

    Moisture in amp while on, caused a small pop, then no sound outpu

    check the fuse between the battery and the amp. (not the fuse in the back of the amp).
    if that doesn't work then something on the inside of the amp is fried.

    Amp problem, need help!!!

    Sounds like one of two problems: either your subs are beginning or have gone bad, or you amp is going bad. What size power and ground wire are you using? You should be using at least a 4 gauge for both. Also what impedence are you running with the amp, ie; 4ohm mono, 2ohms stereo, etc?
