Directed d2400 turning onnot going on protected mode but sound on the output.needs resetting?


Just turn it on normally then after you verified that the green power light is on. And the protect light is on as well just one by one remove the fuses and then wait one minute not doing anything and just re install the fuses one by one and when the blue directed light reactivates (THE BLUE LIGHT ON TOP OF THE AMP COVER) you are good to go. Sometimes just removeing the amp trigger wire and reinstalling it will do the same thing. hope this helps. i do this on mine every now and again. Just wish i new what caused it to do it in the first place, this is just my solution to get it working again.

So it is receiving power but not turning off? Sounds like the sense cable is not connected correctly. Amps have a sense cable that determine whether or not the head unit is powered on. They use this sense to power on or power off. If the sense cable is connected correctly and is getting the correct voltage, then the relay may be broken.

Subs cut in and out


The amplifier may be going into protect mode (even briefly) because you are driving them too hard. Back off on the volume and see whether the problem goes away.

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. Please check impedance on speakers as they coyld be fried as well. A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you

Unit only stays on for 4 seconds then turns itself off.


This is a short or unstable ohm load. Remove all speaker wire connections to see if the amp will stay on.
If the problem goes away when disconnecting the speaker wires try this:
1) Check volume level on zone one and zone 2 if connected. If it is too high the amp will go into protect mode and shut off exactly as you described.
2) Make sure no wires are touching any other wire or the metal surface of the amp. This will cause a short and send the amp into protect mode.

I have a Directed D2400 amp and my red ESP is on


ESP ties the amp into your vehicle's alarm system. If the amplifier is working normally you can ignore the light. Note that this is NOT the protection LED for the amplifier.

My amp stays in protection mode


Does it go into protect in the vehicle if you disconnect the speaker wires from the speaker terminals of the amp?

Amp works when beaten


It sounds like you have a broken connection in the amplifier. The first thing to check is the fuse. Sometimes the contacts become weak on the fuse holder and the connection becomes intermittent. Any other troubleshooting would require opening up the amp. Any repairs would require resoldering the broken connection.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Protection Light Is Coming On


You say the protection mode only occurs when you plug the RCA's in. Does it have to be both RCAs or just one?

The other end of the RCA cable is plugged into the HU?

It possible the RCAs have too much DC voltage on them, causing the amp to go into protection.

Is there a short in the RCA cable?

I would definitely check out the RCA connection at the back of the HU, as it sounds like there could be other issues there. Make sure the RCA connectors aren't touching any other metal (especially +12V).
